    Been in Florence all week. Enjoyed it thoroughly, got to hang out with a bunch of StyFo people, although I never got to meet up with @UrbanComposition, which I regret. Anyway, my magazine had a brilliant photographer along, Milad Abedi, who shot these pics of my ugly mug:

    Wow @EFV , that is verging on a Pitti Peacock outfit! (In a good way)

    I've spotted a slide-show for Pitti 93/Day 1 on the SF home page, but haven't been able to find any running commentary posts or threads yet. Synthese used to do great write-ups in the past. Are there/will there be any such commentaries on SF for Pitti 93?

    The NY Times photo galleries were uninspiring - the extreme of SWD with Craig Green, the extreme of CM with Pitti peacocks, and not much in the yawning valley in between. NMWA set up a separate instagram

    The OP was right, the square color is too close to the jacket. It doesn't work here.

    I have to admit that I had no idea that Beretta made clothes. My father is a keen clayshooter and I know that he spent a small fortune on a Beretta shotgun, and of course you have the classic lethal weapon movies (that have not stood the test of time very well...) where the handguns had a prominent role, but menswear?

    Well, many hunting brands have a clothing line as well so why not. Found this jacket on Ebay and was attracted to the wool/cashmere fabric from W. Bill and decided to give it a shot. Got it for a ridiculously low price too. And in fact the jacket is really nice. Not only is the fabric wonderful, but the jacket is well made as well. No idea who Beretta uses to produce their clothes, but they clearly know what they're doing.

    Thursday. Cotton pants for an unseasonably warm day.

    Wedding attire (not mine) by SF: KW mtm suit in fresco 3 wool/ mohair, square, cuff links and shoes; shirt by S&M; tie by Sam Hober.

    I was fitted in KW’s NY office and it produced an ok but not amazing result. Body of the suit is fairly good but I think the sleeves are too tight by a good margin and the trousers are fairly disappointing.

    Still a flattering suit so I’m glad i have it in the arsenal.

    Today. The piece reproduced on the pocketsquare is one of my favourites by painter of the realist school Józef Chełmoński.

    What are your issues with the trousers? And do you know what color # the fresco is? I think it looks pretty great overall.

    The dark color of the suit makes it especially hard to tell in this pic. But what exactly is wrong with the trousers?

    Also curious to know the pant issues. I’m nervous to pull the trigger on KW suits/pants based upon how severely I’d deviate from the primary pattern.

    The pants are basically ok now after some alterations but the issue is basically that I have forward hips and a hollow lower back, and they didn’t correct well for that. The back rise measurement was too long and there was fabric pooling below the seat. Before alteration they looked like this:

    C6AAA0F8-9D31-42EA-A3D6-A128E777BE60.jpeg

    Partially this is my fault for asking for a very high rise on the trousers. Ultimately the easiest solution after consultation with my alterations guy was to take the seat in across the back/crotch which cleaned up most of the pooling fabric. The best course would have been to detach the waistband and cut the back rise down but my tailor didn’t want to mess with major surgery like that and it would’ve been very expensive and I hadn’t gotten a firm commitment from KW that they would cover alterations costs. They eventually refunded the cost of the alteration but only after some back and forth.

    All told I think the MtM service is still good value and the product is solid, but I am much less enthusiastic about that part of the brand than I am about the shoes and accessories, which are truly unbeatable at the price.
