1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice stuff, but my eyes was attracted to the item in the back, the DB with 2 botton (do you call it a ....2x1 ?) and single button cuff

    May I ask whether Pippo does only accept cash or prefer cash? I'm studying the chance of ordering from Hong Kong in the future......

    I'll ask him. He does accept wire transfers to Western Union (he has a relative that works there). When are you thinking of going?

    Very nice. I can't tell from the picture, does the jacket hug the shoulders, or is there a bit of extra width?

    My respect to Sicilian tailors, my full disrespect to Armani aka crapmani.


    Armani was one of the ones who degenerated all the tailoring and good looking of centuries on tailoring to the atrocities he is know for, also the worst decade ever about style, late 80s, early 90s, he is the guilty one.

    He even doesn´t knows how to dress properly, or maybe he doesn´t cares. He is only a magician on making believe to the masses his low quality garments are “ the best”.

    He is guilty of the closing of tons of Made in Italy factories because his high priced garments, most of the time, are made by slaves on the IV World country paying them cents a day per labour just by being a pennypincher who asks 350 euros for a bad shirt that cost more of shipping back than to made itself due to poor materials used, perhaps 5 euros of making it.

    See him here with, maybe, a random picked rtw of any of his low quality but high prices lines. Too long sleeves, bad trouser, gapped collar, button down with tie,[​IMG]

    etc.

    I hear you. It's a look. Fashion; it's a silly business. Sometimes even I fall prey to it. In the 90s I did love me some Armani doh.

    @UrbanComposition

    Again, fantastic and informative thread, molto props my man

    I understand the time involved for doing a jacket/suit and several fittings is longer than I have in Sicliy. However, would you think that Sig Arrigo would be able to do Trousers in a couple days? I understand trousers to be much simpler than a jacket, of course. I am going to be in Toarmina and staying in Linguaglossa for about 4-5 days and am wondering if that would be enough time for a couple fittings for trousers. What do you think? I'd like some idea before i contract Signore Arrigo.

    Thanks!

    Dunno, but I'll ask. I do know he needs 1.5 meters for pants, but he also has his own cloth. I should have an answer by tomorrow-ish.
