They certainly do it well. I don't care about hand-rolled edges, but I do appreciate the skill required.

More for those interested; spoilered to minimize slight derail:

Something about the way these edges are rolled seems to lend itself to creating a very tubular shape to the unlined 7 fold. It's like the stiffness it provides combined with the repp twill used and the construction type make it easy to press into a shape where blades of the tie are very 3-dimensional. I may be wrong about the rolling contributing to this effect, but I like the result either way. I've not had any other ties quite like these two.

Are your Drake's squares UK-made? These have hand-rolled edges. Italian-made Drakes are indistiguishable (rolling-wise) from a Roda square I have. Same machine? ...Or even same factory?

Because they look beautiful. They also show that the maker decided to see the trouble of manufacturing the square in a slower way, just to get a nice roll. Mind you, that Borrelli edge is terrible and does them no justice, all flat with coarse stitches. Just compare it to that Hober edge and you'll see how quality separates one company from the others. I had no idea Hober offered such a strong, tight roll with such tiny stitches. It has likely taken much more time to manufacture, but the effort shows. This is fine work!

Not a lot of action in here lately. We just recieved some very nice scarves from Rubinacci. X-post

Some new Rubinacci scarves are now available - I think we are the only ones that carries these online - six different motifs:

Yes, the same machine, of course. As far as I know, these machines are quite popular in Italy. Rubinacci, Luciano Barbera, Luigi Borrelli, Roda, Tino Cosma and yes, Italian-made Drake's... pocket squares of all these brands are machine-rolled. Finamore ones are sometimes machine-rolled, sometimes hand-rolled. Isaia, Kiton, Tom Ford, Calabrese - always hand-rolled. Brunello Cucinelli - usually hand-rolled.

So they're big squares, like the Hermes silk cashmere scarves.

Probably they used to be hand-rolled... But today all pocket squares in Rubinacci store in Milan are machine-rolled. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. However, I like the patterns and the size - Isaia and Canali pocket squares are hand-rolled, but they're too small. I personally would prefer a large machine-rolled pocket square to a small hand-rolled one.

Leaves, made in the Rubinacci workshop...or made for them by some anonymous third party?

You mean, made in the workshop where they make their bespoke? No, I would think not. Who actually makes their own ties and pockets squares in Naples (or even Italy for that matter)? It's usually very small, completely unknown and specialised workshops or labourers working out of their homes.

Hi guys,

 

I've never had a bespoke suit made before and I'm about to book a week to stay at Casa Rubinacci to have a bespoke suit made. Any advice? anyone done this before?

 

It's going to be expensive but hoping it's well worth it!

post #4302 of 4305
If you're going to Naples and doing everything there, I think you're off to a good start. If you are happy with the outcome, I suggest continuing to do fittings if you can, even if they are in NY, LA, wherever. One mistake I have made is assuming that once the fit was right, I no longer needed to do fittings. Naive on my part. Also, up the hill there's a nice wine store. Enjoy yourself!

A few nice additions to our Rubinacci accessories, some classic ties.
