I do not post outside of the affiliate thread very often. May be 1-2 times in 4-6 months.  There is a thin line between advertising and informing. Both my posts here have parts of each.

Ah the Korean tailor, some suits look pretty good, very South Italian but a few others got small fit issues, but overall seems way over Savile, and the rest of lady gagas living out from past glory. Hope he can improve this issues and become a very good tailor, I think he is capable, not as per example Madrid untailors, who not only are doing over 40 years the exact same and defective cut, but with the exact same defects over and over.  And came millionaires out of this.:brick:

A few only (from the ones I have seen)

 

btw, got a critic from (could not be nothing than) a blogger whose on his  blog, let me know I didn´t know if It was on the park of a sanitarium or the Pitti door, for real.

 

Found; any serious look, any gentleman, any person whose look is from a (real) man you would buy an used car, but just the contrary, the old ladies would call 911 if walking around their grandsons, any tie knot properly made, any who you would like to have as father or business partner, a disguised that goes to Pitti to do the ridicule ( but believes he gets fame and glory, omg) and of course, could be non less than a wannabe disguise maker, Madrid...  another lady gaga that only does Carnival disguises as the habitual from my haters/fashionistas so as I can´t consider it a professional (I am sure he either does) but a master on disguises, I will pass of uploading pics of him, do not deserve my attention, as that is what those want, champaigne, flash, microphones,  but finally is only what I always call, profanators of classic style.

 

 Those must be connected to all the Spaniard haters of not my humble person but the truth, who as I said, are unable to even knot a proper tie knot, or dress properly, on the contrary, I am proud to have as clients and friends, even some visited my house in Naples, Spaniards with very good taste, who were priorly scammed with garments featured all the time (shilled) by those so called experts and bloggers. 

 

Here more Jaime Gallo, Madrid untailor, the one who now lowers the image of the actual King of Spain (the young fella who was the Prince)

 

innocent bulls killer;

 

Attention to the sleeves were arms of 3 different people do fit on each sleeve. Very well taken measures, oh yeah. (He seems to use the exact same pattern for everyone) Same lapel width for a 250 kilos man than for an athlete, yeah, the best needle of the world (said by himself and his blogger shills)

 

 

 

 

Minister and boss of the Diputate´s Chamber. totally defective Gallo´s

 

 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

 

Un suit for the son of who was the richest man of Spain with 50.000 employees before he was scammed and robbed everything by the own government elected on 1982.  If this “tailor” does this rag for the son of the ex richest man of Spain, what rag won´t do for lesser know people, and attention, same crap for Ministers and innocent bulls killer. 

 

Pay attention to the “tailor”, some people can say that  do good garments, is not necessary to dress well, and that is true, but on his case, he seems unable to do any.

 

Attention to his shirt were he monogramed something on the tap of his breast pocket( also a dress shirt has never to have dress pockets), the shirt also has poor interlining, as see how badly the collar keeps their shape, usually in Spain are used bad mass production Chinese interlining by a Catalonian brand who imitates English names, the worst thing of the world. To use the worse interlining, designed to for shirts around 1-2 euros factory price on shirts around 300 deserves my favorite word, you know that one already...wel,, a clue, starts by S.:o

 

 

I am proud to introduce you, the selfcalled best needle in the world; Jaime Gallo. , Note, he opened his house trying to be the Anderson & Sheppard of Madrid, he only reached to be one of the worst pretentious ever know.

 

This even owns a “tailoring” school, didn´t I tell you that all this actual so called tailors have never been on a real tailoring school? Hence the evidence of the delict. 

 

As shirtmaker, this can´t be called shirt but has a shirtmaking house on the best street of Madrid, paradoxly, the shop is called BEST. jajajaja

Sarto, it's all very entertaining and informative. But please tread carefully my friend - I'd hate to see you get sued by one of these badspoke untailors.

I am utterly opposed to the above suggestion. The idea that the wonderful resource which is this board could redound to the benefit of anyone other than myself - even its owners - is most repugnant.

It's like organic food. More expensive, rots faster, tastes worse. But you know you did the Right Thing.

London House is Big Corn.

 

(That is the first time in history that sentence has been spoken.)

That's not how my (London) tailors use the term. They use it to describe lining as in the post below. It's because the lining looks like the canopy on an old car.

I don't really think that is much of a concern. None of these tailors is likely to sue SartoridiNapoli for suggesting that, when the wearer moves, the suit moves with him, sometimes in ways that produce folds in cloth. That is just the difference between a suit made of cloth and one made of armor.

Thanks, I edited some of my post to avoid being sued, if they do would be another symbton of their deep pathologic narcissism, as instead of having lessons even on Sundays as I do as much as I can to improve, they waste their time do not improving themselves, but trying to silence others who say the truth about, but this people is able to do the ridicule this way, as they are used to do with their ill rags.:lol:

 

BTW, I sued those of Chiaia Napoli years ago  (whose internet client hooker  is a member here) for alleguedly scamming me on an awful defective rag , and after giving  their vat number (who was fake police told me), adress,phone, web page etc, the Italian system never found them, specially in Naples, so if any untailor sueds me, I won´t ever found on the streets of Naples, specially on the last dangerous place I rented a flat where police never dares to patrol in, this is for real.:fonz:

Having just glanced at Scabal's pricing of their 2016 offering, I've decided to raise a fist and rage against the machine.

Buy direct from mill when/where you can. So tired of "cloth merchants" deciding what's worthy of attention and then jacking up the cost.

In recent years, the likes of the Lesser 9.5/10 panama and Minnis Rangoon have been eliminated. The latter firm has clearly turned attention to high supers, Italian woven crap.

And no, I'm not going the LL route.

It takes a bit of searching, but mill-to-tailor (or customer) is more than possible.

So I understand some say having colored shirts in direct sunlight can cause discolaration. I feel like unless you're literally out in open sunlight all the time in a very sunny place, this is unlikely to affect say SCs and suits openly displayed inside your house facing an open window, or should I be worried? I've decided to move my jackets to a open clothes rack recently, and I found it much more pleasant for the room to not use garment bags or covering, and it's hard to imagine any real harm done to jackets just because they are exposed to sunlight (they are meant to be worn, after all) but I guess I want to check.

Sunlight will always eventually fade and bleach any color out of any fabric, or even leather. Of course, how fast this happens depends on how much sunlight the fabric receives, and what kinds of dyes were used to color it. If you live in a cloudy climate, then it'd take quite a while to notice the effects on shirts facing an open window--I wouldn't worry. If you live in a climate with strong sun, then you probably would want some extra protection for the shirts, assuming you hope to get many good years out of them.

Agreed on Scabal. Disappointing about Minnis. Care to list any mills you've found recently who will sell retail? Sator had a list once on the Cutter and Tailor, but it's a few years old now.
post #16469 of 19905
Kind of a noob here, but has Minnis drastically reduced their offerings? There seems to be a relatively substantial amount of "classic" offerings.

Fwiw, I'd much prefer to see them revert back to a classic centric focus, rather than the "fancy" things they are also putting out now.

I live in London, and probably will close the blinds over summer and so on, when you say a while, you're talking like 10+ years right? =P
