the guys that were awaiting the hemp/linen blend fabric, sorry but they decided not to send it to me frown.gif

I did get this Irish "donegal" grey linen, about 10oz:

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.

Not a good advert, BOTOH (and I'm no great judge) but 1.cotton Solaro  explains the wrinkly arm  and 2.  he may have put on weight since he cut it, assuming he did cut it,  and can't afford to make another.

Don't write him off just yet Francesco Guida have worked at Liverano in the past. His work is much better than that I've see it myself first hand. I suspect he has gained some weight since the jacket was made. Most of the tailors I know are time poor seldom have enough time to make themselves new cloths.

exactly. guys on here are clueless. its the blind leading the blind. 

Im a novice, but its laughable some of these opinions.

The guy is ex liverano for 30 years and trained sartoria corcos lmao, hes not an orazioluciano whos spinning off mtm as bespoke lol. Neither is he a salesman..hes a tailor in the real sense of the word..a cutter. Please familiarise yourself with the salesman and the tailor. The best example of this would be looking at B&Tailor, based off their social media they are the best bespoke tailor in the world but truth be told far from otherwise

When I met with Mr. Guida two weeks ago he was wearing a suit from light tobacco coloured mohair mix from Drapers that looked nothing less than dashing. I've also seen the above mentioned solaro suit irl and would admit that the photo doesn't do it a favour. But should WillingToLearn based on a single photo not be interested in his service then great -> more time to work on my commissions as I'm a happy client.

There are tons of pictures of Guida suits on Torsten Grunwald's blog - the journal of style. The fits look fine to me if nothing special. As a stylistic matter, the poofy shoulders look ridiculous to me. I can't imagine anyone wearing them in a business context, but that's just a personal preference.

My understanding from Italian reading, is that he actually has a stronger background in industrial pattern drafting and cutting, so developing RTW patterns in different sizes, rather than bespoke Sartoria.

Just heard from Minnis regarding the "sand" or "oatmeal" fresco we were hoping they could make up in 8-9 oz.  They haven't been able to find a good yarn to make up the cloth, and their attempts to piece dye it weren't very successful.   Sorry, everyone who was interested in that cloth. Maybe we could look for a lightweight tropical wool.

post #18088 of 19905

While I agree that solaro photo is a poor advertisement, the dude is fat with a fairly expansive belly...you can only do so much with the canvas you're provided.

 

Agree w/jiffy about the poofy shoulders. Doesn't mean it's poorly done, as dng will surely infer, but it's not a look I like.

That's a little odd, given that they make the 9-10oz Wheat and Sand...

Then why come to this board and constantly ask questions?
