In terms of sizing, they are about the same. But in terms of comfort, I favor the Sartoria line.. Mostly because I like the Shoulder and the larger collar. (All the handmade stuff is nice too..)
Need some advice on Bontoni sizing. I am 10.5D on brannock and wear 9.5E (regular width) in Saint Crispins and C&J. Based on what I read on this forum I should go for 43.5 in Bontoni but I was recommended by 43 by the Cavour team via email.
Would love to hear from someone who can compare C&J/St. Crispins and Bontoni sizing.
I think Mod2 is the happy medium, slimmer than NMWA Rota. Mod2 is a bit wider than the Walt. Mod1 is close to the Walt, but it tapers more below the knee.So how does mod 1, mod 2 compare to say Rota from NMWA in how slim it is.
For example I know NMWA Rota I would need to slim the leg opening to say 7.5 to 7.75in for EU46/US30 pants (while the Armoury’s Rota is close to too slim). I would say something like Epaulet Walt via Hertling is the slimmest I can take.
I saw you just received a Mod2, can you comment on how much fabric inlay there is? Particularly in the top block?I think Mod2 is the happy medium, slimmer than NMWA Rota. Mod2 is a bit wider than the Walt. Mod1 is close to the Walt, but it tapers more below the knee.
I appreciate it! Yeah I loved the first suit I got from them back before the Mod2 was even in the works but the trousers just didn’t work even with letting them out as much as possible.I'm actually not home because of the holiday, but I'll snap a photo when I'm back. From my understanding, Kevin said they added extra fabric, so I would be shocked if you couldn't widen the legs by 1.5 inches (4cm). I had my tailor let out my Mod1 trousers an inch, and Cavour supposedly added even more fabric inlay
The pleats should help. My issue are my large calves so happy with the fit.I appreciate it! Yeah I loved the first suit I got from them back before the Mod2 was even in the works but the trousers just didn’t work even with letting them out as much as possible.
I realize my situation is definitely not that of others, I just have thunder thighs lol
