Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 1090

My Cucinelli and Borrelli unlined jackets also have very light fusable in there. It's a lot more common than we think, and it's a lot less problematic than we've been led to think too.

Alumo, Testa, Canclini and some taylor and lodge navy wool/linen spring/summer suiting, available for consumption.

[EDIT - see Fassbinder's post below, seems there is another source with better pricing]

Apologies to everyone who contacted me about this - I had so much interest I could have sold it 4x over. I've made some enquiries and I can get more at £35/m. There are the two colours pictured above and a third blue with some white mottling.





I'll go through all the PMs I received and try to contact everyone; I'm travelling in Asia for the next week or so, so things may be a little slower.

+1 on that, his pricing is better. Plus it seems he has other interesting stuff such as Rangoon.

Darren Beaman?????? I can only advise that one use extreme caution before making an order and sending any money his way. And if you do, please ask him if he can send either my suit or my deposit back when he sends you the cloth. Its been about 10 or 11 years. It would be nice to have one or the other by now.

You got the same thoughts as me about that “master” tailor. Jaja

 

Poor students who paid for his “tailoring” lessons.

Sartodinapoli;

 

He deleted me by saying him his imitation of Neapolitan 7 fold ties were a bad joke as well as his “ Neapolitan” jackets he was asking a fortune to his allegued scammed pupils, so I was right about this “master” tailor, but I am sorry to say, this is Savile Row nowadays, a parody of it greatness decades ago.

Buttonhole on my fresco commission.
post #16349 of 20362

Silly question, but are the majority of gentlemen here commissioning their fabric directly with their tailors? 

 

My local tailor has a solid selection of fabrics that are "built in" to his pricing structure but I imagine asking him to source some of the fabrics I see in here isn't worth his trouble.
