Delusion of this thread is hilarious

I'm guessing these subjective facets (both of which I like) also fall under your special brand of objective fact lol?

 

I have to say, I don't have the slightest idea point you're trying to make. All I've gleaned is that paying top dollar for an ill fitting bespoke suit is dumb (um, duh?) and that only Italians are capable of making a bespoke suit that fits one's body (dumb, but whatevs).

 

Am I missing anything?

Do you crash and burn like this in real-life social situations too?

This guy is too stupid to even troll properly. Or tell when people are being sarcastic.
He's not worth your effort guys.

I looked up Guida. I don't know anything about his work, but the photo of him in a beige suit on the Web page was jaw dropping. I have never had a suit fit me that poorly. I mean wow, it was not good advertising. I know tailors don't inherently have style and the cobbler and his childred, etc., but they must be able to cut a suit to fit themselves properly or I am just never going to give them my business.

More than anything, I'm fascinated to know what his intended overarching point(s) was...I'm genuinely confused.

I thought this part was interesting. It seemed his point was more that it was your fault if the suit didn't fit, rather than the tailors. I think this is true to some extent - you need to have some input on how you like a garment to fit/what you find comfortable, but I think that ultimately blame on fit should lie with the tailor. Blame on unsatisfactory with garment styling lies with the customer (trying to go against house style etc)

I believe this had been asked before: anyone has experience with the light fawn one in Minnis new flannel range? Lovely on the website.

A prohibitive price point is the only thing that will ensure you are working with a reputable and experienced tailor who knows what they are doing. Anyone charging beneath this price point is obviously an incapable tailor who doesn't know anything and so they have to charge cheap prices to lure in unsuspecting uneducated idiot customers who think they are getting a top-quality suit at a good deal.

Your snark has quickly become my favorite snark on the forums. Next SF meetup, I'm buying you a whisky.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's winter. There was a very, very similar (if not the exact same) cloth offered by Drapers this past winter. 320 grams if my brain remembers things well.

No idea, it seems kind of conflicted. The color says summer, but the nap says winter.

Was hoping for summer D:

Are you suggesting that one or the other image is over/underexposed?

looks similar to:

 

 

If it is, it is a winter weight coating.  @UrbanComposition has commented that it is "summer in the winter" or something to that effect.  It looks great, has been on my list of ideas.
