    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.

    Not really. I think he knows what I like at this point in terms of overall fit and structure. All changes are kind of on the fly and not really fundamental to the garment "fitting". For example, the button point, my fitting didn't have buttons on it and I just kind of touched where I wanted it and said I wanted the button to be there and he made a mark. No conversation or anything. I also think it is important to note that I, the customer, am happy with my suit and Frank has always made me happy even when I have been a pain in the ass in the past. I think that is what matters.

    What are the alternatives to Ercole's in this price point in NYC? Thanks. After losing a bunch of weight, I need to have some suits made for formal activities coming in the near future!

    I missed the star head pic of booth the first time. In that pic, the button stance looks good. Though I would still space them out more. But in the others, the waist button looks too low.

    This is purely an aesthetic choice, I hasten to add. In every other respect, the suit fits extremely well. The crankiness about it makes me lol.

    +1 Ercoles does good work except on one coat where it looked as if my hips are wider than they are.

    I hear Bruno Cosentino (formerly of Dunhill Bespoke) is now working at Ercole's Manhattan outpost.

    Is Frank cool about fixing stuff that doesnt quiet fit?

    I recently got a pair of trousers there that i really like but after wearing them i realize the rise is too long. I need the waist band dropped a bit, i think. I wish i had realized it when i first pickd them up.

    Could anyone post a pic of a DB suit that Frank has made or point me in the right direction? So far I've only come across SB suits and jackets and DB overcoats. I apologize in advance if I missed it in the thread.

    I think NewYork Islander has some, but I wouldn't call them typical of what he normally does.

    I have one I made a few years back as well as one I made in the middle of March which I will be bringing it to Frank next week for tailoring (I lost lots of weight), and can post pictures.
