    OTR clothing isn't inherently worse than bespoke just because it's OTR. If it fits, by all means go for it.

    if you can afford it, go for it. Though, do check your closet size before you do so[​IMG] I am debating whether to buy another DB solely base on that reaosn...

    You are so full of shit it's laughable. In what, size 56L?

    I sold this solid charcoal a few months back for a bit over $2K
    [​IMG]

    In popular sizes there will always be people willing to pay around 50-60% off retail for Attolini.

    A wise man once said - "good bespoke is better than bad RTW but good RTW is always better than bad bespoke".

    FWIW - I bought that suit for myself, it fit great but the trousers rise was way too low. I was able to immedietly re-sell it for more than i paid.


    haha did you sell that on ebay? if so i think i was one of the ones bidding on it. 36r right? i lost out though and ended up getting a navy blue one from shop the finest. If the attolini fits you well there is no way in hell you are getting bespoke of that level for 2600. Maybe from napoli su misura but ill find that out tomorrow!

    If you find some Zileri that has more or less that figure in that color, let me know. I´ll pay 1500 euros for the Attolini I got in my wanted add. in Euro 48r or 46r [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us
    If you can afford it, and it fits, then buy it. Don't buy just because it is a deal. As for bespoke, I've had my last 2 suits and a tux made from scratch and they're not perfect. They are better than what I can find OTR, but "perfection" is illusory. I am happy though, and that's what counts.
    Well said.

    I got a drop 10 or so , I can get that silhoutte in tons of RTW suits. I´m lucky yehaaa[​IMG]

    Can't you get two Chan bespoke suits for that price? Do you need a new suit right now?

    +1. in my experience, great rtw is better than even merely good bespoke.

    2600 is far too much to pay for a non-bespoke suit, IMO.

    +1 imo. I've got mostly borrelli and some bespoke stuff. It's difficult to match the level of quality the top-tier Italians put out. The pick-stitching on my borrelli is clearly better, but the balance better on my bespoke due to a lower shoulder. My borrelli is more comfortable. That said, I can't afford to do bespoke all the time and don't have access to Rubinacci. So when I find borrelli jackets for 800-1200 I jump on them. One day when I hopefully have better access to naples I can go exclusively bespoke. There are very few makers that would equal Attolini in quality though. People seem to forget that. It is most certainly worth 2k if you are going to wear it.

    Your lack of support of attolini suits at full retail price will cause them to go out of business
    .

    .
    which should create a nice supply of attolini suits at liquidation prices

    PC, you live in Europe right? Buy a low budget airline ticket to Rome or Napels (sales in going on). I can give you a few addresses where Attolini's are 50% off and you pay a lot less then $ 2,600 (more half of that in €).

    Actually I'll be in Rome in August. Current season's suits are all in the range of $5K-$6. The one I liked was the suit with the highest retail price.

    Summer sales will run till end of August in Rome if I am not misstaken. Go to Cosimo Colonna in Rome (very close to the Pantheon, 2 minute walk), which is one of my favorite shops of all time.

    I bought a F/W 2009/2010 Cesare Attolini suit there last January during sales for EUR 1,450 (discounted 60% on full retail). I also bought a Attolini navy blue overcoat (similar to the ones Ian at STF carries) in 100% cashmere for EUR 1.750 (retail in the US supposingly USD 6K).

    They also have significant numbers of Borrelli, Luxury Vintage, Kiton, Pino Borriellio, and lots of other Napolitean stuff. Prices are way lower than in the US. All the interesting stuff is all the way to the back of the store.

    http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ghlight=Cosimo Post 43 shows some pics of the store (which is pretty big).

    Another personal favorite in Rome: www.gruppoclark.com

    GRUPPO CLARK
    00146 Roma (RM) - 85, p. Radio

    Gruppo Clark is a high end clothing retailer, not a discount store. During sales its worth a visit, 100% cashmere navy blue Kiton SC's for EUR 1K. Full retail price is still lower compared to US prices. Kiton shirts are, for example, full retail below EUR 300 a piece, suits EUR 2.8K. During sales Ihave seen Kiton Suit, in all sizes, for less than EUR 1,500.

    You need to take a bus or the subway as it is about 20 minutes outside the city centre but certainly worth it. Loads of Kiton suits, Sartorio Napoli and Cucinelli.

    Could anyone, JamesBond or whomever, tell me the line, model name and season of this suit? Thanks in advance.

    I'm sorry to to say that Cosimo Colonna doesn't sell Attolini or that quality stuff anymore. They sell more mid-market stuff that appeals to the tourists.

    Damn, was hoping someone had a source for the various cuts and styles of Attolini suits for this and past seasons as well as the make of that pictured jacket.
    Anyone? I would even like info for some the other top end Italian labels in RTW.

    You no like i turisti o dei loro vestiti?
