    Hello gentlemen,

    I'm pleased to announce that we have started to work with this amazing shirt manufacturer located in Bergamo!

    Among the new features added (most of them regarding the fit, so they are not immediately visible):

    FABRIC
    As you know we only use 100% Italian high quality cotton fabrics, originally from Albini. With this new collection we have also included Canclini among our suppliers. If you take a close look at our website, some shirt fabrics would not report any manufacturer. This is because one of our supplier treated us to stop giving us fabrics if we don't increase min prices on our shirts; so in order to keep a great offer we just remove the brand on the fabrics that did not meet the min price. They are still Made In Italy (we will updated the website soon).


    CONSTRUCTION
    The quality and long life of a shirt are about materials and of course construction. A strong French seam with 7/8 stitches per centimeter and small ton sur ton pentagonal gussets will protect our shirt from tearing. Removable collar stays will also keep collar points sharp and curl-free.

    [​IMG]

    The collar stays are angled (not rounded) to sustain better the collar.


    CUSTOMISATION
    On our website you’re able to choose among more than 60 different fabric colours, 9 types of interlined collars and 7 types of versatile cuffs. What about buttons? There are 4 options: black or white with a thickness of 2 or 4 millimeters for a more sartorial touch.

    Last, but not least, my favorite new feature: the buttons are attached following a lily shape (and you can choose the color of the stiching too!).

    [​IMG]


    And now please tell me, which one do you think is the most important feature for a real high quality shirt?

    Hello - I just stumbled across Lanieri and, having used MTM with some other SF affiliates, am interested in yours as well. I just took a quick run through of your shirt order process - bravo, the videos will be good for both MTM novices as well as the more experienced of us that still need to make sure we get it right for your process - but I have a few quibbles:

    1. Collars - the icons do a reasonable job for comparison but you really need pictures. Both with and without a tie. Preferably with each fabric.
    2. Speaking of fabric, your single shots of them are very nice, but you need a few more of each - preferably a couple that show how the hand lays (is it stiff, does it flow or roll, etc.) and especially with an item like a coin that provides a fixed size reference for plaids, checks, and stripes.
    3. Lastly - I don't use facebook and never will. You need a login solution that doesn't require it.

    That's my constructive criticism; I hope it helps. I like what I see so far, I think you're close to knocking it out of the park.

    Hi Razl,

    many thanks for your feedbacks. I've already reverted them to Simone (my co-founder) that is in charge of Lanieri's website! However, a couple of comments:

    Quote: True. It will be impossible to shoot the collar for each fabric, but at least one example should be relatively easy.

    Quote: We had already planned to do more shots of our fabric, with a size reference, but to convey how the hands lays it's tricky on pictures. May I ask you for an example?

    Quote: eheh I've already told Simone that the login process it's not super intuitive... you can already login or register without using facebook, but with the usual mail+password.

    Signup:

    Login (that is confusing):

    the input fields refer to the button "Log In with email".

    Thanks again!

    Ciao

    Great, I'm glad it came across as constructive!

    Fair enough. My only rationale for having them shot in each fabric was really more for the checks/plaids which can be tougher to envision than plain or stripes. Not critical, but helpful!

    My only reference would be to point you to some competitor/affiliates which I'd rather not do here :blush: - PM me if you'd really like to know.

    :facepalm: sorry, my mistake but it does help your case to Simone :fistbump:

    You're very welcome, hope it helps!

    looking to get a 2 piece suit, however I have a really square shoulder. On the suit customization page I do not see any shoulder adjustment. Do you guys have modifications for square shoulders? I am asking because when I wear OTC suits the shoulders got all bunched up, either too much padding or too little, I am not sure the exact reasoning.

    Hello, Lanieri.

    I saw your website and i'm interested in making a few things with you guys.

    I have a local tailor that makes all my shirts, pants and suits that fit me exactly to my liking. Is there an option to send you guys a shirt, pants and suit for you guys to make the measurements? Would that be better than send in measurements? Or do you except measurements from the clothes? What do you think would be best? I understand you have a process for measurements online but I just wanted to minimize the errors and deviations what from I currently have.

    Looks like you have very nice fabrics and i'm looking forward to making a few items for this fall.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    copying another garment is always tricky, let me copy and paste a comprehensive reply I've given previously:

    Quote: Considering your case, I would recommend to send us some pictures (customercare@lanieri.com) of you wearing your favorite suit and shirt to understand if there are any main differences with our cut, and eventually working together to replicate your favorite fit as close as possible. We will still need your anatomic measurements to do so.

    Hope this helps
    Ciao

    Hello gentlemen,
    you certainly know that a week ago there was the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.

    Last Sunday September 27th, more than 37,000 stylishly-dressed gentlemen in over 400 cities were driving their motorcycles to raise funds for prostate cancer research and awareness.

    Obviously we (me and some Lanieri’s friend) were proudly there in Milan.

    Take a look at our photo by Andrea Benedetti. We were driving our motorcycles all around Milan wearing special Lanieri suits with our friends Riccardo Pozzoli and Fabio Attanasio (the guy behind thebespokedudes.com)

    Riccardo Pozzoli (wearing our Green birdseye pinstripe suit)

    [​IMG]

    Fabio Attanasio (wearing Loro Piana's charcoal grey blue striped fabric)

    [​IMG]

    Yours truly (wearing a Reda fabric now unfortunately discountined). I've built the bike myself during university, starting from a 1975 wrecked Honda CB500 Four, then heavily modified (now it's 605 cc, with racing camshaft and much more... not exactly street legal [​IMG] )... took me 3 years to complete!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and the rest of the team!!!

    [​IMG]

    I didn't see any coverage of the Distinguished Gentlemen's ride on the forum, did any of you guys partecipate?

    Ciao
    Riccardo

    Gentlemen.

    another great review of our suits by one of the most distinguished connoisseurs of Italian bespoke tailoring: Fabio Attanasio from thebspokedudes.com

    We are the only MTM company he has reviewed (just like Parisian Gentlemen), I guess we are doing something right then if the "bespoke" guys accept to write about us.

    If you don't know Fabio, he has created the bespoke dudes in 2012, and is actually working with magazines such as GQ Italy, Fashion Illustrated, Arbiter, Vedomosti and RBC Daily.

    You can read the review here

    Have a nice weekend everyone!
    Ciao

    Hello gentiluomini,

    I'm proud to announce our new selection of ties. I think we’ve introduced something truly special and unique. From today you can find online 20 new amazing ties entirely handmade in Italy, from high quality italian fabrics.

    The silk one in particular, are made using Mantero silk, it's the same supplier of Marinella! 4 different patterns in 3 different colours each:

    Dalia Pattern:

    Circle pattern:

    Dots Pattern (my personal favourite):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Clivia pattern:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    New fabrics, 4 new styles (the seven folded one is my favourite) and new customisations too. On lanieri.com you can create your own tie by choosing the pattern, the style and then the length (according to your height of course). Every single detail to create the perfect tie.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we are the only MTM company in the wolrd offering customizables ties. Please excuse my bragging, but this is something you can probably only do in Naples, from very few artisans - hidden in those narrow alleys of the old city!

    Ciao!

    I must say this wool linen mix is near divine:

    [​IMG]

    That said, I really do wish your classic blade width was a bit wider - say 3.3 or 3.5". The 3.1 is still on the skinny side from a classic point of view.

    Cool tie selection. Can you provide more details on the interlining used for your ties, and whether the silk is hand or digitally printed?

    Thanks!

    Gentlemen,

    another customizable, made in Italy, high quality accessory has been recently introduced here at Lanieri!

    I'm glad to present you our new collection of bow ties!

    Bow ties can be worn on both formal and informal occasions, day or evening, and is correct with either single or double-breasted jackets. Thanks to its versatility with a touch of vintage style, we have finally decided to include it in our collection.

    As usual, we have chosen the finest materials: silk (manufactured by Mantero) for more formal or extravagant looks, and Italian wool for more casual styles. But the most important thing is that every Lanieri bow tie is entirely hand-crafted in Italy.

    Many patterns and bright colors in two traditional styles: the classic and the diamond point. The first, as everyone knows, is the most essential. An extra dose of refined elegance for just about any occasions. The diamond is ideal for shorter men and also works well for peaked lapel tuxedos as the peak of the lapel and the diamond tip complement one another.

    You can also choose between two sizes: the standard 5 cm, recommended for people with a collar size up to 41 cm (16- 16 ½”), and the wide 6 cm for collar size from 42 cm (17”).

    Last but not least (and certainly not obvious), our bow ties are not pre-tied and the their length is adjustable from 37 to 45 cm.
