This thread just continues to deliver...

...deliver SECURITY GUARDS.

Seriously, though, congrats on the great SCs, and on the reminder that some of the simplest looks are unsurpassable when done truly well (I'm reminded of the dark suit/dark knit-with-dots run sometime back on WAYWRN that served as a similar reminder).

I want to see Rubinacci and its specialty drape and sleevehead (for I am shopping for a tailor myself) but the circle jerking action is blinding.

So here's a question for you brand/tailor obsessed people who spent thousands on bespoke clothing: a pad on the back for the new bespoke clothing or a reality check to see what has gone wrong?

And just a reminder, here's what I said before about your Rubinacci jacket: the silhouette is counterproductive to your imperfect body features, accentuates your large head and lack of height. And while the jacket looks too small at front (which adds to your head size), it creates a grossly wide backside.

You spent the money and seems to be happy on the results, so here's some golfclap for you.

But the sloped and slightly concave shoulders adds bulk to your upper body alongside with the wide upper sleeves and slightly long skirts. Overall your jacket made you look shorter and bulkier.

I don't see a lot of circle jerking. In fact, there seem to be as many negative as positive comments. The criticism of mafoofan's jackets has been done ad infinitum, so I'll just comment on your criticism of whnay's. All I can say is that I really don't see it. I think the jackets fit him well, and don't see what you call the "long skirts."

Perhaps I am missing something, as I am generally partial to the style. I have always been happy with mine, no matter which of my many defects they fail to hide, or even accentuate.

I'm not sure what you're saying here. That bulk in a man's upper body is bad?

Fair enough, perhaps you can share some pictures of a garment you believe would fit me better.

Whnay's suit fit him well for it is bespoke afterall but I think he could use a lot of improvements on shape.

Your DB suit looks better than his but that's not a compliment; you just have a better frame.

If you fancy the look of WWF wreslter, bulk and roid are definitely needed.

But for a relatively average/short man, bulk adds weight and shortens their torso. Better be lean and cut instead of bulk and muscular, IMO.

Your suit looks very nice, but you wearing your suit does not.

I am not a wardrobe consultant, tailor, etc. So You would be better off asking a professional or continue trial and error.

I realize it's only the 12th page of the thread, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and venture a guess that whnay has been and will continue receiving the consultation of Mariano Rubinacci, who from from all reasonable accounts is a professional.

This is all very cute but lets stop beating around the bush. you don't like Rubinacci...that much is clear, what do you prefer? Are you a bespoke customer, which tailors do you use?

Your sportcoats are awesome! Despite the stark analyses, the coats fit well and are great examples of exemplary tailoring. Because of my stature, the shoulder finishing is an element that I would, personally, avoid.


Given the favorable results, the previous process proved quite effective; nothing seems to have been lost in translation. At least for the initial fitting of your next commission, meeting Gennaro can only enhance the process, however.

Cheers.

Most people who know me know I am not into a circle jerk, yet I think the garments diplayed in this thread are beautiful. I am sure there is always something one can find fault with as an intellectual exercise, but without a picture of perfection to make reference to, the criticism is hard to understand.

Thanks for the effort to put words in my mouth. I don't like your Rubinacci nor Mafoofan's and Rubinacci is not the one to blame. I don't specialize in circle jerking action or singing praises either.

Don't think being a bespoke customer over a diet plan to cut my weight by 1/3 would be a smart choice...

I was enjoying this thread until you chimed in. There seemed to have been a nice balance of constructive criticism, one or two nit-picky comments, a bit of genuine appreciation shown, etc. but all around a fairly balanced set of comments... I think we understand your point of view. You think it's all rubbish and the bespeakers are self-delusional suckers... Now can you please keep quiet a stop spoiling it for all of us who are enjoying the rest of the conversation? Point taken... Just accept the fact that the majority of us posting to this thread are going to disagree with you. Your constant going-on about it isn't going to convince us of your point of view (nor are our responses likely to change your mind)... So leave it be. All you're doing is making yourself look boorish, rude and irritating.
