    Alas, my FB wouldn't know an Oxxford suit from an oxford cloth. [​IMG]

    Prey tell us more, perhaps another twenty posts on this most interesting of topics. We never tire of your keen insight. Or better yet, bless us with another tidbit about Massimo or Ciro so we can convene a circle-jerk. I'll bring the circle I'll leave the rest to you.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Isn't Olga B. a better target for a circle-jerk than those two?

    But she'll use it to competitive advantage and any true Artisan's Fan will tell you that the real sartorial studs aren't in it for the money.[​IMG]

    Oxxford is a great company, no doubt.

    but, I would rather get Kiton or Attolini over Oxxford.


    There is something about Kiton that appeals to me the best; The Napoli Cut.

    St. Andrews of Milano, to me, has the most handwork of any RTW suit.

    I understand where you are coming from. But in the real world(of budgets and credit cards), Oxxford is available at a much lower price than Kiton. I don't know much about Attolini pricing.

    It's my understanding that desirable Oxxfords(solid colors, and conservative pinstripes, etc.) are readily available at $2500-5000 full retail, and as little as $600-1000 on sale(Century 21, FB, etc.)

    Kitons would be at least twice as much,maybe more, and I suspect Attolini would be closer to Kiton than Oxxford in price.

    And though I might be snickered at on this Forum. I like the idea of buying American. "Hand Made In Chicago"!

    Attolini is much more expensive than Kiton, I have seen, at least at Vacca .

    For the prices they charge, I'd sooner get bespoke. Not much of their stuff, even over eBay, has interested me that much besides a pair of pants that Connemara snatched up. It seems like there's some kind of unspoken competition between people on here to get garments with the most handwork, judging by all these arguments over who does the most. It's a nice thing to have, but does it really matter that much? Maybe I lack class or something, but all that matters to me is that lapel stitching, buttonholes, and canvas are done by hand on a fine suit. Also, I tend to take aesthetics over handwork.

    Why do you keep insulting AF here and in other threads? It's so atypical and ungentleman of you. AF, on the other hand, has been acting like a perfect gentleman by not trading barbs with you.

    I can confirm this...I've never been impressed with the Atlanta FB. If only I wore Sean John...

    I'm new here but I've noticed this myself. Stay on the high road Artisan Fan.

    aportnoy's account has been hijacked by a team of hackers working for Oxxford.

    Attolini is much easier to find at discount, at least for desirable cuts, than Kiton.

    Ask him, see if he's so anxious to blather then?

    Having absolutely no idea what this dispute is about, I'm going to side with those who argue for keeping it out of the threads. I can't see how it would wind up reflecting well on anyone concerned to have yet another flame war around here.

    EDIT: I'm going to decline aportnoy's invitation to ask Artisan Fan what it's about, because to be honest, I'm not really interested. No offense to either party intended, but whatever it is is clearly a personal matter between them, and in my view, that's where it should stay. If AF said something to affront AP in some thread here, I missed it, and I'm glad I did.
