    Sartoria Ernesto Capua (Modena) Su Misura Suits, Shirts, Shoes

     CMT has all sorts of possible issues for the shop. What happens if the buyer brings in too little cloth? Lousy quality? What happens if an accident happens and you ruin the customers cloth? When you place your label on something either you care about everything including the cloth or you...

    Classic clothing. When a man could wave his sword around in public

    Suit for skinny guy

    The people doing the hiring won't be checking labels. I promise he won't be strip searched either. You have to look at the suit. How does it look on him? If he doesn't look like a clown or Jed Clampett he'll get a pass. So safe colour? darker better then light Safe fit? Not too short. Not too...

    Zegna "Fit Sav." -- what's this, a new Zegna cut?

     Zegna makes a wide range of drops in all cuts. I have drop 9s in Milano and couture IIRC.

    Where in the world to buy my suits - Italy or Australia?

     I think you misunderstood. Finding staple colours on sale can be challenge. Finding twelve cream jackets OTOH can be easy :embar: The sales normally start around Jan 6th. The Saturday after that date. If you're willing to gamble no harm cruising the outlets and shops when the sales...

    Where in the world to buy my suits - Italy or Australia?

    165 is the short range even in Italy. Size depends on chest and waist size. Weight doesn't really matter much. $2K AUD is what less then €1500? So three suits with an average of €500. You're either buying at the outlets and hoping to find something in staple colours and paterns. Or you're...

    Is my blazer navy or black?

    Virtually nothing is 100% black. If it's close to black consider it black. Even if it's dark blue,green whatever.

    Who compliments you more--men or women?

     Men are far more likely to be colour blind.

    Who compliments you more--men or women?

     A middle aged cop notices your shoes. :embar: Is he wondering if you stole the shoes? If you're selling drugs to pay for the shoes? Is he offering you his billy club? Did he stroke your arm? Feel the fabric ? To answer your question women. But all the clothes do is change the type of...

    How do you determine what size trenchcoat you are?

    Your jacket size. Where are you that 140lbs is average?

    Suits for shorter guys?

    Zegna makes different lines. But I'm going to guess you're narrow shouldered. Zegna will likely be too broad in the shoulder for you in the main lines.

    Suits for shorter guys?

     Sounds like you're a fairly normal 36 or EU 46. I can't speak of Sweden but here in Italy with those measurements you wouldn't have much problem. Unless you're measuring really badly

    Suits for shorter guys?

    You aren't really short. More average. Maybe short in Swedish terms but fairly average in Italian. No idea what your frame is like. Different people carry weight in different methods. What sizes do you wear? In other words how big is your chest and waist.

    How should the back of a jacket fit?

    Post pic but smooth.

    Question about wearing denim with sport coats

    You all have obviously never met an Italian woman. The moment she starts ironing your underwear you'll understand

    What to do about my overly square shoulders

    No and if you think it isn't pointing out the likely issue then :s :embar:

    What to do about my overly square shoulders

    I'm guessing the OP problem is not trying on enough different brands. Slope of the pattern varies.

    DId you have suits as a child?

    I even had shoes and socks.

    Poorly sized dress shirts

    If you're buying shirts S/M/L then you'll get whatever the company sticks you with. Dress shirts are sized by collar size. Do you know your collar size? Then start looking for brands with a body similar to yours.

    Shipping to USA:: VAT?

     Company being? Shop? Factory? Most shops aren't setup for international VAT free sales. If they don't collect they risk having to pay it themselves. Manufacturers are more likely to have an in house process. Usually when you buy something on vacation you then file for a refund.
