I don't get it, why buy a €5000 Brioni or Kiton suit when you can go bespoke?

    When using reliable makers, mistakes (on the part of the maker) will be corrected. Don't get your panties in a wad before having a civil discussion and taking it through to a conclusion. Of course, when talking it through, dont' be unreasonable.

    Since a few of the mistakes I've experienced, one thing I always do is go back over my order in detail before giving the green light to proceed. I never assume they 'just know' what I meant.

    I was mostly joking. Wanted Patrick to know not everyone wanted his hair.

    I've had good exchanges over e-mail with Jon Gray and I think the results won't be bad at all. These things will take several iterations to get totally right, anyways.

    I think that you are missing the point.

    I have to assume that this was not merely a Freudian slip.

    But, but ... if no one bought these suits, there will be little point to the thrifting threads.

    With respect, it doesn't make sense to you because you're not someone with a high net worth. People who can afford Kiton (I mean really afford, not afford buying one discount suit from here) have different priorities than you do. Time is one, and getting a bespoke suit is a process. With Kiton, they can have a beautiful suit and have it tailored a bit and be wearing it in 48 hours. Spending $5000 doesn't matter, it's like you spending $50.

    It's in the name - that's why most prefer Brioni's over bespoke but in terms of pricing, you can have good deals with bespoke.

    Sadly, most people buying OTR or MTM don't realize that they are not really getting the tailoring that made the name Brioni.

    I went to school with James Bond. He is not fictional. Moreover, as he predates the Fleming 'invention,' he is THE James Bond in my book.

    err, it doesn't matter how it started, Brioni is now known and maintain its prestige due to its ready to wear operation. Bespoke is an irrelevent part of the menswear marketplace, unlike haute couture which has at least a promotional value for womenswear (not that bespoke could compare with haute couture anyway).
