Anyone have any experience with this question?

actually, this has been discussed many times, anyway.

you own the raw last due you paid for it. as soon as the maker/company/workshop worked on it, it becomes their intellectual property. check their terms and conditions upfront. you run into the situation of abuse of confidence, though.

after all, as soon as the raw last is adjusted, you'll be hard pressed to find a maker, who is going to work with it. same goes, if you want to bring your own last.

it can be negotiated, but it's not the norm. it just don't make sense.

summary:

-if you have your own last and you split with the "company". it depends on their terms and condition, how to proceed.

-in an ideal world, you can put it on display in your own home.

-probably, you can show it to the new maker as an indication. chances are big that this is a dealbreaker from the start.

-do your due dilligence, when you decide to go the bespoke route. it's no one way street.

-the experience is priceless.

yeah, to my knowledge as well. I often see him in adorned in items that would suggest otherwise, which made me wonder. thanks for the response.

Lino's a stylish guy. I think that a 'menswear store' in Milano is a very much more exalted sort of atelier than what a sorry yank like me is accustomed to. These places are purveyors of a very respected (where they are) art.

^good article. I have to say I didn't know it was Kanye West either, and actually all I have is a moderately hazy memory from middle school that he was a rapper... turned actor?

Attractive woman, dressing well:

The dark brown cardigan and red shoes & necklace actually work well to subdue the yellow trousers, and they suit her hair colour too. If I was being super-nitpicky, I'd suggest the white top is a little too pale and/or sheer, but overall, very nicely chosen pieces.

To me she looks like Charlize Theron, which is never a bad thing. I dig the outfit as well...minus the cig.
