The Rubinacci Thread. - Page 228

post #3406 of 4250
Looking forward to to seeing your new stuff whnay. Just did a fitting with Luca in NY and was thinking of going to London to pick up the finished suit. Not sure it's worth it for just one though, but thought I might drop by W. Bill and maybe look at some fabrics in person at LH for another suit and also an overcoat.

I picked up the first shirt produced by Rubinacci while in Naples this past weekend.  I ordered quite a few, however they produced just one to ensure the fit was correct.

 

Fabric is solid blue Riva cotton (feels like silk) with a spread collar and french cuffs.  I went for the option with included hand-stitched button holes, arms attached with hand-stitching and of course, all the buttons have the Neapolitan crow’s foot attachment. 

 

The rest of the shirt was machine stitched, which Mariano recommended would hold up better for regular use.  I have to say the hand-stitched detail is nice, yet subtle.  Also, I went with a traditional, non-fused collar and cuffs.  More difficult to iron, but much more character.  I’ll post some pics and close-ups once it’s washed and ironed.

Member C&A mentioned that this could use some new pics and as I love him so much...
I also think that Mariano Rubinacci checked out the Rubinacci thread. He probably informes himself about the current status of orders etc. on sf as it's probably faster than taking the lift to the workshop up upstairs rotflmao.gif

Button up, Mr Rubinacci. Please.

+1 to buttoning up. A gentleman can get away with more than the average cad, but this is pushing it. And thanks for the photos CN, LH really is a Napoli must see. Even if, like me, you're a small-timer only there to pick up some ties.

Great pics!   

 

I must confess, I shared the links for this thread with Mariano back in August so he could see what was out in the blogosphere a bit more.  If you've spent much time in Naples during August/September you'll much more understand the unbuttoned look.  It's not London, this is Naples and in my experience a bit more relaxed (and unbuttoning acceptable)... 

 

Without much ado - I pick up my first order this Friday - pics to come early next week.   

 

Now I just need to pray that the rain forecast for Naples this weekend clears up and the sun sneaks through!

If you visit Naples, Italy - you must visit Giorgio Ricciardi at TIES & DREAMS.  This is a small shop making ties in the original hand-made methods that so many houses have left behind for mass production.  

 

Skip Hermes, Ferragamo and Charvet - go bespoke!

tell us more about the ties. good luck with the rubi pick up

@ThinkDerm - what are you interested in re. the ties?   They were entirely hand-stitched with hand-rolled edges, minimal structure and had an interesting feature called a "frizione" which literally translates to clutch (like the one you use to shift gears in a car).  It's a small loop of thread towards the end of the narrow tie end, in the center, that Giorgio told me was there because it must be!  No use what so ever, just a sartorial detail.  Prices were fair in my opinion, 120e each.

 

Can't wait to pick up my first order.  Lots of research, many failed attempts with far inferior tailoring houses and my 4th trip to Naples in 3 months - I am sure it will all be worth it!

120e for a bespoke tie is about in range. There are far more expensive RTW ties out there.
