    Well, we can do it, but since that fabric will be very, very, very expensive (we are talking approx 200 € per meter, and you need 2.3 meters of fabric for a jacket) we need to restrict the purchases only to customers that have already bought and don't need any alterations to their fit... otherwise any mistake will be quite painful.

    That still sounds like a great deal. A vicuña blend SC for under $1500 = high demand on SF.

    I'd love a whole Vicuna suit.

    Just received my Lanieri jacket.

    Fabric is fantastic, fit is very good. Would have preferred slightly wider lapels to the house style however. Will post a full review with pics soon. Definitely an excellent option especially at the price point!

    Now I'm tempted. How was the measuring process?

    Pretty painless. In many cases I used one of my favorite jackets as a template. You get a good amount of feedback from Riccardo as well. There were some issues with my measurements and we went step by step to correct them. I'll post some pics this afternoon and you can judge for yourself!

    Here's the jacket in question. Only quibble is I would have liked the lapels to be a bit wider. But altogether pretty good for a mtm by correspondence. The lighting is off but the fabric is excellent very light and drapes nicely a smidge of extra fabric behind the shoulders but though to clean up without a tailor on hand. May get it done. Overall the process was very easy and the level of service was great. Sure there are some small issues but for the price it was definitely a good value.

    I see you guys are now offering stuff in 10 oz and beyond (I have a sick love for heavy fabrics and their drape). Only waiting for canvassing option.

    You NEED to add Toronto as a stop.

    I have to say that I am impressed by the website. Looks promising :)

    One question, I read that import duties are covered. Also for Norway?

    If you come to Toronto, I'd be in as well. And bring Vicuna!
