    Medtech and NSM are killing it!

    Really awesome... most attractive Italian garments that I have seen on this board.


    I gotta say, this thread is making me wish that I had not "wasted" so much money on RTW. You've got some good "sheet" going on there!! Excellent ME.

    Couple of basted fittings today.

    Medtech, lovely to see more of your commissions -- it was also great bumping into you and your friend right at the tail end of my appointment (I was the ghastly young man harassing Mina before you fellows came in on Friday).

    How is the mohair mixture in weight? How appropriate might it be for the summer? I like the peak lapels -- might have Mina do one for myself in coming times; they look more restrained than I expected, did you specifically request this?

    Did you request slightly roped shoulders on the 2 recent garments? I've been digging roped shoulders recently, and am curious to see how your garments turn out! Very nice silhouette on both garments; the peak lapels are a nice touch on the blue suit.

    Had a good fitting and my stuff is coming along nicely.

    Who is that one guy around on these trips? Not Dino, but the random chap who just sits arounds (has been there on the past few trips).

    That is why I took the plunge recently. I can get a bespoke jacket from Mina in my choice of fabric for less than what a Zegna jacket goes for at local department store. Can't wait for my fitting in April.

    Very interesting to know. Does anyone know here whether they visit the UK?

    It would be nice to know what they can do for me (and the prices).

    Many thanks

    You may have just found away for me to spend more money... [​IMG]

    You're getting your suit fully lined, right? Then no worries about the scratchiness. I like mohair alot.

    The Dormeuil is beautiful. Did you get a 3-way mirror during fitting so you can see your back?

    Thanks both. Do either of you know how much a suit runs to? Not that I've got any money, at present. But it will be good to know.

    Excellent. Do they do CMT?

    I've just fired off an email to the address mentioned, but I didn't ask about CMT.

    Thanks
