    Here’s a few from my recent trip to Palermo. Cloth is a 14oz linen that I got from Sultan’s in Toronto and will be made up to a DB that can roll to either the middle or bottom button. Crazy soft stuff, but a bit more prone to wrinkles than W Bill.

    First fitting. Jacket will be lengthened, shoulders extended with rollino, and the lapel a bit lower - it’ll point directly at the shoulder seam.

    Second fitting: trousers are done but upper thigh will be let out so that the pleats close a bit.

    What are your thought on Sultans? Can you provide deets on the fabric?

    I heard he also carries Tom Ford end-bolt shirting. Don't know if that's true though.

    I’ve gotten several lengths of cloth from them, and am happy so far. Most are no-name and brandless, but I like them. Arrigo made up a wool/cashmere gun club that drapes nicely. I have another length of mid-blue 14oz linen that is unfunded for now. Can’t speak of their shirtings; I’ve no experience with them.

    At the time, it was €500, but the price may have changed since then.

    Actually? The value seems to be great what about the handwork? Was there any fusing in the jacket?

    Santi Macchia via Sicilian Reserve
    Fabric I picked up from Tip Top (Brooklyn) and is summer weight from VBC.
    Jacket is partially lined.
    I left all details other than 2 button patch pocket to the tailor.

    Kind off topic, is Paul Stuart custom true bespoke, who do they use?

    While pictures do not always tell the full story, I would not be very happy with this as my first order - the shoulders look problematic, amigo.
