    This is beautiful fabric.


    And these photos are so well done with their perspective by showing the details of the rawer handwork in the "Dartless front panel and then the closeup of the elegance of the finished shoulder. I would guess that these tailors have a great appreciation and knowledge of the fabric they're using and show a light hand by letting the qualities in the fabric dictate how they work with it.

    This is such an enjoyable thread!:cheers:

    Is that puckering on the sleevehead acceptable/normal? I ask because a Neapolitan tailor I used in Sydney did it and I thought something was wrongly executed.

    If you mean those horizontal puckerings on the sleeve the answer is "not acceptable": the sleeve is too tight fitting and the sleeve doesn't get the amplitude of the arm..the result?no breath, the sleeve are not well proportioned.

    I think meister is referring to the puckering at the sleevehead where the sleeve meets the shoulder. That is presumably from working a relatively large sleeve into a relatively small armhole and also partly an aesthetic choice about how to execute that. What Musella is referring to would not be so much puckering but wrinkles across the sleeves (not the sleevehead) and they are inescapably a result of the wearer doing some curls at the gym in his clothes before taking this picture.

    Isn't that the notorious "spalla camiccia" of Neapolitan fame?
