    I agree with you. Mimmo Pirozzi of Via Chiaia is a real talent. And more and more I wear his clothes I can not wear other clothes bespoke I have. is his cut to be the only one. And he does all kinds of shoulder. He is also the one on the shirt. But regardless of the shoulder is his cut and his personality in the process that can make each dress unique.

    If you look at Italian and European coats from the 60-70 you ll see many example of this distinctive French look you mention. The A&S story is a bit different, but as Scholte, both may have indeed brought the softer cut from Sweeden as in fact the both are quite different then the rest of the row...

    Here is my latest creation by bespoke Pirozzi. It is a double-breasted cashmere coat with vintage martingale. The fabric I got it from Il Vecchio Drappiere of Milan.

    Look at the beauty of the shoulder and some details.

    I leave you any comment.

    Spalla a pagoda, if I'm not mistaken. It's striking. I remember seeing pictures of Vittorio de Sica with a similar coat construction. Having said that, the look is too flashy for my taste.

    It is the same construction using the big De Sica .... but its processing techniques goes back even before .... I share with you that everyone can't pleasure ...

    However, Pirozzi does all types of shoulder.

    Today I was from Pirozzi for the second test of my vintage double-breasted ... being a show ...

    Plus I photographed other details that I can't wait to share with you

    This stuff looks better than the high priced Rubinacci I've seen on this forum.

    Before we show you some shots of my second test of my double-I want to show another dress by Mimmo Pirozzi of Via Chiaia 197. As soon as I saw him I told him that I want one just like it for next summer.

    It is a vintage white linen completely unlined. For me it is wonderful. is a true work of art.

    Then his line to me crazy.

    This time I want to show my first dress Pirozzi. It is an old official wool vintage English made double-breasted Pirozzi. This dress has more than 4 years and I've put a lot of times .... and I ironed once ..

    Look at how salt around the neck and at the beauty of the relationship neck - shoulder saddled.

    What do you think?

    Just drain the photos place some details of my second test.

    I have to say that, as someone who generally dislikes double breasted jackets and wide lapels, I dig these suits. What can I say - when it's right, it's right.

    I agree with you ... for me the proportions are perfect .. everything is alsuo place .. in fact the pocket without touching the lapels go on. But I love them .. I have basically only the double-breasted double-breasted

    Promise kept ... here are some shots I did to my vintage double-breasted jacket in the first test ... by Mimmo Pirozzi of Via Chiaia 197.

    Look at the line of the lapels and the details of how it is attached to the sleeve.

    No'm really looking forward to show that it's over all its beauty.

    These days I will also show proof pants ... but above all I want to show how Pirozzi is born from the hands of a silk lapels double-breasted tuxedo to scream .. I saw it with my own eyes while I was with him. .

    look how it is already almost perfect shoulder and sleeve without being sewn or even stretch .. this is a vintage flannel Zegna by the Vecchio Drappiere in Milan ...

    What do you think?

    Gianni, many thanks for this very informative thread. How long does it take for Mimmo to finish a suit from measurement to the final product?

    Thank you for your nice words. I do it because I want to always show the best of the best of Italy.

    Mimmo is very good even in the times.

    HE TOLD ME THAT THERE ARE 2 METHODS TO HAVE AN BESPOKE:

    1) GO TO NAPLES TO MAKE THE HOLIDAYS AND IN 7 DAYS OF THE DRESS IS FINISHED WITH TESTS 2-3. When you arrive you dedicate a little time. Go to him, choose the fabric or use your own, he cut and on the same day you put it in the first trial. Then you the next day or when you want to return for the second round. And then before we left to return to him for further evidence and while you're there he finishes it. So you can carry off the dress and returns.

    2) GO TO NAPOLI 2 TIMES. HIM 2 TIMES CAN MAKE THE DRESS. One day you go, choose the fabric or by your own, then he, while you're there, cuts it and puts it in the first trial. And if you're there two days after the day you come back for the second round. Otherwise, after 25 days days back to him for further evidence and while you're in tailoring the jacket he'll end up in front of your eyes observing your body and your movements. THEN YOU ENOUGH WITH THIS METHOD 2 DAYS IN NAPLES.

    AND SO YOU CAN WEAR OF HIS WORKS OF ART IN A SHORT TIME. THEN THE TIMES ARE VERY QUICK.

    ALSO FOR A PERFECT TRANSLATION AVAILABLE TO YOU ALSO A TRANSLATOR WHO SPEAKS ENGLISH, FRENCH AND SPANISH. The important thing is to tell time.

    And I must say that this service is very useful.

    What do you think?

    Between today and tomorrow I'll show you other jackets that I photographed in front of my eyes while I improved my double-breasted test.

    I met Mimmo 4 times for my first suit. The first time I gave him the fabric and we discussed the details of the suit. Two days later we were ready to have the first fitting. I then returned several weeks later for a second fitting. And after that, several weeks later I returned for a third fitting. But each fitting was like two fittings. We first tried on the suit, he then spent some time reworking it (one time I stayed and watched, the other time I went out to lunch) and then we tried it on again. Two fittings probably would have been enough but I was happy to do a third. And the timing between fittings probably could have been sped up, but I was not in a rush. I expect that for my second suit the process will be even quicker.
