1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I was referring to this post by Sator. Have you seen it? I find it compelling and I find it hard to argue against geometry.

    At first I thought the extended front dart was part of tradition, but hearing the interviews, it seems it may be related to something else. You use Ercole right? I'll ask Frank the next time I see him. BTW he had a length of grey herringbone Lesser about 13oz, is that what you are making up next?

    I like the film but see it for what it is which is a documentary made by an enthusiast for fellow enthusiasts. The dialogue was predictable but entertaining. If he ever made part II I think it would be interesting to get these tailors to give the audience their unfiltered views about wardrobe staples, favorite fabrics or fabric makers, favorite articles of clothing, etc...but maybe this is more of a series of shorts.

    I really need to learn Italian...

    BTW whnay, does Mariano speak English in that rapid fire breathing-is-unnecessary manner too? His story about finding out about hopsack from a customer is hilarious. I wonder if it is one of the iGentry.

    Yep, Frank said he does it for fat guys. :) The Lesser I am doing next is a lighter-than-navy Carlo Barbera for Lesser about 11oz. Now that I know he has a grey one as well, I maybe have to cop... Hmmm...

    Dear Eustace Tilly,

    I just wrote a detailed O'Mast Review. . That aside, isn't it sad that so many people were in one room that know each other from SF but for some reason they were not able to say hello to each other?
    Well, I hope everyone had a good time.

    With regards to the movie, of course it is not as comprehensive as the Savile Row documentary but the BBC and Kid Dandy have different budgets. In addition, no one has made an accessible movie about Neapolitan tailors before and as such I find extremely valuable. It is not easy to make a movie for such a small crowd.

    In comparison, there is men of cloth and the director Vicki very admirably tries to get the movie finished. But it has taken her years, whereas Gianluca was able to get in financed and finished in a much shorter time frame. That in itself is a great accomplishment in my opinion.

    I can honestly say, that I look forward to a second movie.

    Bought my copy for £20 from Drake's - near to Bond Street and hundred yards from Kiton. Loved the passion displayed by all. Antonio Panico has an amazing voice and presence.

    Bought a copy for my tailor. Waiting for him to watch it. I told him he is not allowed to until he finishes my overcoat.

    Bought it, watched it, enjoyed it... only to confirm what I knew before; I'm going to visit one of these tailors very soon.

    Many thanks to Migliarotti and Cho for such a great documentary.
