A Rare Opportunity - Experts Available in Person - Page 6

post #76 of 120
A Harris - Could you please clarify -- for those of us who want to order Vass shoes, but do not know our size, will he be performing sizing? Thanks.

And what is the pricing going to be (roughly) for the special orders on this trip?
post #78 of 120
I'm curious as well - Vass pricing? Also, Chuck - can you give any specifics about the pants offering?

We'll be showing the trouser but they will not be for sale yet. We have the design finalized and the prototypes made but will be getting a little feedback on fabrics at the event. What I want to gauge is whether it is worthwhile to most people to pay a bit more to get fabrics you usually do not find in a ready to wear trouser. For example, a nice, good quality super 120's from one of the good Biella mills versus a a truly premium fabric from Carlo Barbera, Scabal, Piacenza, Holland & Sherry... that class. Our thought is that 50 folks make trousers in the former range, damned few make them in the latter. Just one of those details you want to doublecheck before you start writing 6 figure fabric orders... call me chicken I know what I would say about the trousers, I want to shut up (Boston won the Series, anything is possible) and let you tell me about them in New York. In the end, I can only wear so many of them so what you think is slightly more important :-) One thing - some of what we plan is practical, some is silly. Nobody NEEDS trousers in the worsted Barbera cashmere any more than anyone needs a Bentley... but it does alleviate the tedium of ordinary life now doesn't it? Jill just wondered aloud how long it will take for someone to flame Bentley now that the name has been mentioned. Right now my main concern is keeping my guys feet to the fire as the "Gee, can we deliver the day AFTER you leave Italy" emails flow in... at least the replies are short: NO. LOL, pass the antacid laced Bourbon please.

Gabor will likely have a pretty good range of samples, accurate charts, and a Brannock device, so he should be able to help you with the sizing. As for prices, I'm not ignoring you guys, I just don't have the price list yet. I should be able to post it tomorrow.

Those of you attending this event, please take pictures and post them on the Forum (e.g., ties, shoes, shoes, ties, and of course the shoes). Thanks.

I'm sorry, folks. You may ignore JohnMS's post. He misspelled "shirts" as "shoes".
post #83 of 120
Wow, I did spell shoes wrong...I mean shirts. Would love to see shirts too.

See - I knew it was a typo. Chuck - cancel the wet Carlo Franco tie flagellation.
post #85 of 120
Wait, not so fast, that is if I get to keep the tie.

Did you say 'what about voiles or broadcloth or 2x2 200s'? So much for my misimpression that he was coming to see me.
