Having seen that jacket worn in person, I’d say it did look rather good, in terms of overall fit, proportions and choice of cloth. The lack of waist suppression wasn’t something I noticed but I agree that may be something to tweak based on these photos.
The jacket looked good as he was walking in his instagram stories. I would have no problem wearing a jacket like that.

If this was worn by a random person and posted here no one would have liked it! This is one expensive oversized potato sack!

Bespoke, florentine, whatever he has posted here lets try our best to ignore who is wearing this!

This is one expensive mess for many!!

It needs to be taken in. I’m surprised Simon posted it. If I was Vittorio, I wouldn’t consider it finished. I’d insist on taking it in.

I watched his story. I liked how it looked in the story even more than the article. I will also agree that in the story, it doesn’t look bespoke. Still looks like a Florentine Ivy style jacket to me. Looks like a well fitting off the rack jacket if that makes sense.

It must have been Crompton's preference, I suppose, as well as the extremely sloping shoulders.
Even though I understand that one has to accept his natural body and shape, maybe it could be more flattering not to stress it, but mitigate and somewhat counter it.

A nice and versatile garment, the suede overshirt.

It is a very low number at a headline level indeed. Is the net profit after paying themselves? and if so, how much?
apologies for the late reply. I recall a net margin around 5% which is very low. As for avoiding taxes this way, I have to underline that Italy stepped forward by miles in the fiscal checks, so I am quite confident this is literally their real margins, as wages have gone through the roof for such artisans.
