Saw this article today on Bloomberg. I didn't know they could make a bespoke suit in a week.

I read a while ago that Kiton can also offer a similar service (MTM) in a few days.

Anyone catch the tidbit at the end where you can actually stay at Rubinacci for 7 days/6 nights while they make your suit?

I've never been to Naples but is there enough stuff to do for that long there?

Yeah I saw that. makes $5500 seem like a free suit.

Of course there is. Napoli is a beautiful city, with a lot of... ahem... character. Pompeii is near by and I could spend 7 days only there. Amalfi coast, Capri and so on...

Interesting to see a suit cut by Andrea. I think he cut some things when Gennaro was still at the company, but as far as I know, this is one of the few photos of a post-Gennaro Rubi suit.

The photo at the end makes the lapels look slightly Tautz-ish, but David showed me a head-on photo yesterday. Lapel is more of a gentle peak. The shoulders also look slightly extended without the droop that sometimes happens on softer jackets.

Suit looks nice.

For some reason or another, I personally do not care for the finished product. Could be the angle though.

All those articles on main media are pure trash.

It's a cute article that was an easy 5 minute read with nice pictures.  I'm not sure why guys like @GBR and @SartodiNapoli insist on hating articles like this.  It's a lifestyle article in Bloomberg with nice pictures.  it's a bit about tailoring, a lot about an escapist fantasy "Instead of being stuck on the A train back to Astoria. I could be eating linguine vongole and sipping espressos and discussing tailoring while my suit gets made at Rubinacci."  

 

Anyone who takes umbrage at an article like this, just wants to hate things.  Is it a prize winning, article?  No.  But it's not meant to be.  It's a slightly information, fairly well written, travel memoir.  Resenting it doesn't make you seem smart or insightful or more clear-minded than other people.  It simply suggests that there is very little joy and humor in your lives.  

 

Incidentally, the writer often does not write the title of an article, FTW.  Those are invariably written to get clicks by an editor.

Agreed on the suit.  It does look a bit more angular than a lot of jackets I've seen from Rubinacci, but definitely a very soft look.  I like it.  Would buy if I weren't saving that money for a new leather jacket and/or needed a suit for my winters in Capri.

It does look a little more angular than whnay and foo's stuff, but it doesn't look too different from iammatt's. A little hard to tell though cause the Bloomberg photo is at an angle and David is far away.

It could be the photo, in either case.  The stuff that I've seen of Matt's, in person, has a pronounced softness and roundness in the shoulders.  I really think that judging anything from Internet photos is a bit of a mistake, not because it's impossible to capture a soft silhouette on line in a flattering way, but because it's much harder to do than to capture a flattering ultra masculine, broad-shouldered and small-waisted, image, so there is a tendency for people to select those to post online.

GBR is just a passive agressive disordered, he just hates himself.

 

I just dislike articles on main media that got no idea about tailoring or those usuals: 10 tricks to dress better.  trick 1 red socks on court. Trick 2 black shirt always work etc. trick 3: on your black shirt, use a white tie. 4: Armani is the best.
