According to the dictionary, they are tailors. According to the cognoscenti and SF, they are definitely not tailors.

 

It's perspective, really.

As a company, they are tailors. None of the blokes in those photos are tailors however even though they like to refer to themselves as such. They are fitters. The tailors are over in Italy.

I like the fact that PJT stick to a theme as such, sort of like all the people that work for Cucinelli and RL. It's good marketing. I think many of the fabrics used in that shoot though don't suit the unstructured casual suit look, they are too light and flimsy, hence the wrinkles. Unstructured suits need a cloth with a bit of oomph. Think a 10oz hopsack rather than a 7oz shiny twill.

not so much.

They are purveyors of tailory substances created in places foreign, often malodorous.

It's all explained on their website:

Our emphasis is on fit and a reductive approach to building a wardrobe.

PJTgate...

Why (and I have this own problem myself with the 3 or 4 PJT/SS suits I own) is there such bad pulling below the knee on the trouser leg?

I often assumed it was a personal issue cos I've got large calves (cycling legs) and thus their fitted leg width just stood out on me, but going by that melange of images, they all bloody have it.

It just looks poorly fitted to me. and for a group who's (and I'm paraphrasing) emphasis is continually on 'comfortably fitting clothes' does this continue to happen? Just widen the bloody leg.

I thought dictionary definitions were around to avoid this kind of thing? From the Oxford dictionary (the only one I use):

 

Quote:
 A person whose occupation is making fitted clothes such as suits, pants, and jackets to fit individual customers.

 

Anyway I'm glad to hear that they have tailors in Italy that take care of making the clothes.

 

Can anyone clarify if they have materials available from the top notch makers like Holland & Sherry, Scabal, Dormeuil, Zegna etc?

Wonderful result at the Gabba.

while we're talking love/hate of PJT style, thoughts on a) side adjusters instead of belt loops and b) 2 inch cuffs: on cotton dress chinos ala PJT style for business casual?
post #65935 of 67946
Neither for me. Loops and no cuffs for chinos.

Someone should organise for the Australian Cricket Team to play the All Blacks and finally settle which country's better.

Over on AAAC chinos without cuffs is practically being naked. Like cuffs on pleated trousers and with a suit but never understood it with flat front trousers or chinos for that matter.

Don't despair GF, the sun's still there - it's just gone behind a long, white cloud.
