I'm going to have a couple of suits made, after a couple of years' hiatus, and I'd greatly appreciate some assistance with a few questions:
The last two that I had made were made by Adamo. I'm happy to consider other tailors for these next two (not to intimate that there was something wrong with the suits that were made, but I'd like to try others) is it still the case that the recommended trio are JH Cutler, Adamo and Sam Disano?
I read extensively before I had the first two made, but found that, when I arrived at Adamo's, I really still didn't know what I stylistically wanted; I couldn't have given instructions that would have resulted in anything like a coherent, elegant suit. I also found that I didn't know the full set of things that - style aside - I should have requested, as things that are appropriate to a bespoke suit or shirt. I was a little dissatisfied to find that, without having expressly specified details, things like buttons, surgeon's cuffs were omitted or of lesser quality. Any thoughts on where to start if I want to try and redress that this time? Style isn't something that I'm going to pick up in a week or so, but something like a list of things that ought to be done would be of great help.
Finally, I'll also have some shirts made. I've been generally pleased with Charles Nahkle, though I've had some problems, such as collars de-laminating. Who else is out there?
Thanks in advance!
Edit: I also noticed that Adamo's son seems to be doing most of the work now, with an assistant. Has anyone had any recent experience? Does an Adamo suit still have much to do with Adamo?
