I can´t stand people idolatrices that Simon who has any idea about this but intoxicating the industry me and 99% of honest people are. 99% of bloggers are clueless histrionics who just want to have fast cash out of peackoking or shilling with ridiculous and fakes articles, per example Parisian ungentleman who had not the gutts to publish my answer as proper shirtmaker, to the fails on his article about what a good shirt has to have. Last buttonhole horizontal makes a bad shirt good? He said so. This people intoxicates the industry.
Trousers look overall pretty bad, got extra fabric all around and not a clean cut. See as the box and legs do not have the same proportion, is like a chop
from two trousers into one. Pretty amateur and bad for such a “ good” tailor. Anyway I have never seen this person properly dressed but all the time looks disguised on other people carnival cloths.
Sleeves got wrong extra diameter all around, specially on the middle that makes them look bad, unnatural,unpro wrinkled and twisted.; In fact quite similar to the poor Madrid tailoring.
As Archibal says, everything on Simon looks bad mainly because he has any idea about dressing, simply rates the tailors based on how much he was paid or freebies got as well as having ridiculous tacky clowny features( that you won´t ever seen on real elegant directive task promen of the history) and fabrics chosen. You all can read it all over and over.
I didn´t read that article, but I am pretty sure he rated the jacket as “ almost British old school perfection, barely impossible to make nowadays but from a few hands as this supertailor that I am very proud to introduce you”. The stitching is perfect, so the pattern matching, so the silhoutte, the trouser is a masterwork that I fits as a glove ( a glove 2 sizes more, ok) and the sleeves look a perfect cilinder with any wrinkle( oh) this is my most recommended tailor ( until next month he writes the exact same for the next one)
Am I wrong?
Hard to see this bad things on Neapolitan tailoring unless from a very bad tailor. Sadly there are a few as we all know.
About A & S, is pretty sad to see how has degenerated that was on the late Alfred Hitchock times, simply the best tailoring house around, based on those real masterworks from his films. Pretty sad for me.
Picture; note the sleeve on the left on James Stewart is not clean,( as on Simon) but while on the right actor hangs perfectly clean. hangs perfectly clean.
The same low gorge lapels as shown before, but here looks awesome, on the priors as Simon looks simply clownish. Even on the grey one look ok for the other gent but notice on the slight fail, the shirt cuff is not seen and the shirt collar is too tall for nowadays. Is he a forum member or an A & S model?
As Jedwards pointed out, some people believes spending a real fortune on a well know tailor will turn any Clark Kent into Superman, as people believes having a Ferrari will turn you into a Ron Jeremy pornstar like with a rate of woman sucses as he on the 80s. But let´s face it, are elegant born people and others not. Simon is from the second and forever will be.
Well, good tailors worked on Alfred Hitchcok most of the times, but that was when good tailors were around...
Wow. I think the Edward Sexton suit looks really great, including the sleeves and the pants. It's obviously not as slim fitting and non-structured as what's "modern" and most popular these days, but is that really a bad thing? And it's a completely different style than what Neapolitan tailors do. But again: Is that really a bad thing? I like both Italian and English tailoring.
As to Anderson and Sheppard, I'm not a huge fan of their style, but it's pretty far from horrible. I think the gorge perhaps is a tad too low, and the belly or curve of the lapel is a little to much for my taste, but that's all details and I can see how their style appeal to people.
Oh, and if you didn't know: Fabric will not hang cleanly in every single position. There will be some bunching when you move and when you don't just stand straight. Just try with some garments of your own if you don't believe mepost #2166 of 292711/7/15 at 8:32amQuote:
Nice to see what kind of style you like. For me, this looks pretty good, but I think it's too tight and (way) too short.post #2167 of 292711/7/15 at 9:56ampost #2168 of 292711/13/15 at 8:10ampost #2169 of 292711/13/15 at 8:11ampost #2170 of 292711/13/15 at 8:13ampost #2171 of 292711/13/15 at 8:32ampost #2172 of 292711/13/15 at 8:33ampost #2173 of 292711/13/15 at 8:41ampost #2174 of 292711/13/15 at 8:46ampost #2175 of 292711/13/15 at 9:03am
