Nice suit. How much stylistic flexibility does Rubinacci allow? For my tastes, I'd probably want slightly narrower lapels and a shorter jacket. Perhaps slightly narrower sleeves as well. Did you talk to him about these kinds of details, or does you suit reflect the house style?
Is there a third set of dollar prices if you meet them in NYC?
And what determines the geographic price structure of the final bill...the location where you are first measured? The location to which it is delivered (I'm disregarding things like VAT and duty)?
I'm asking these somewhat rhetorically, since there would be no reason for you to know exactly what the answers are.
Bill and Matt. F., since the two of you were measured in Naples, but then fitted in London and/or NYC, did you pay the Neopolitan price?
And Cantabrigian, since you were measured and fitted in NYC only, to what pricing structure was your commission pegged?
I was measured for my first suit in Rome, had my first fitting there, second fitting in London, and ordered my second suit in London. I was quoted prices of 4000 Euro in Rome, 3000 pounds in London. At the time, both were the equivalent of $6000.
hey, that is a really excellent suit, congrats on a perfect double breasted suit! I like the slim, fitted look of the suit-- yet it looks far from constricting. I even like the look of the keyhole-shaped buttonholes on the lapels, which I usually don't care for-- on the DB, it looks sharp.
How much shirt cuff is showing, by the way? It looks a lot like Matt shows, is it more than 1/2" ?
1. I'm going to agree with Yachtie and be perplexed by the way the right chest drapes over the 6/4 buttoning point.
2. Since it's Italian, I presume the trousers are not cut for braces, but I would prefer no break with a Rubinacci trouser. So, hike it up or get them to sew in brace buttons if they have not.
Most importantly: I didn't know there were guys left in you neck of the woods who dressed this well. I've been to a couple events at the High Museum, and other than black tie, the styles were...unfortunate.
Threadjack warning: and does anyone down there really wear Edgar Pomeroy?
