East Sicily Tailors - Page 5

post #61 of 376
Thread Starter 
Just chatted with Sleevehead, and he's actually putting in a lot of work behind the scenes to create the Kickstarter and make it something continuously profitable. If successful, he'll get a cut (like most agents) but by far the majority is going to the tailor. Incidentally, both Sig Arrigo and Palmisciano set the US price at $3000 for a suit, which is pretty fair considering the quality, amount of handwork, and fit.

Obviously more would be interested in the lower price, but check out the survey here:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/?sm=h75uGZnnIkgotS9_2BJzm_2BnQ_3D_3D

I'd assume that the more people are interested in the "early bird" price, the more the tailors can be convinced to make the trip out. $1500 is a killer deal for a suit.

Interesting idea, kickstarter for Sicilian tailoring. However you miss the opportunity of visiting Sicilia smile.gif

I agree. Panarea really felt like we were on vacation. We rented a boat from a fisherman and toured ourselves around the island till we found a bay. We anchored off the shore, had prosciutto and white wine, took an afternoon nap, and then dove in the sea to cool off. It was magical.

Sorry to bring up an uncomfortable topic, but if the tailor bails and/ or orders are not delivered at the end, is Sleevehead taking responsibility for the money as an agent?

Good question. I assume so; he wants to make it legit and not a "take the money and run" operation. That's just the vibe I have so far; I'm sure once the business side of things is set up, the details will be clearly spelled out.

IMO, that would be the most useful part of having an agent. Essentially someone who acts like a store holding a trunk show if something goes wrong.

Agreed. I do know where both guys live, though, and I can outrun them. smile.gif

Here's a few pics of the DB.

Can you take a picture with the pants and jacket on?

He already showed us the jacket on and no pants. He can just show us the pants on and no jacket and you can stitch them together.

 

Edit: Isn't this a standalone DB?

Not sure if I missed this, but what is the early bird special and how does it work? One time deal?

When it gets cooler, yes. Summer temps in San Francisco can sometimes dip into the 60s.

Sweet! This is the winter version of the cream linen double breasted. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Jacket looks great. If we could get the early bird prices in SF I would commit to a few pieces.

I agree with @Mr. Six, if San Francisco is on the itinerary, I will buy a suit.
