    I know Kabbaz is in Amagansett, but isn't Matuozzo in Napoli? Maybe I didn't describe it well enough, but in my head I was picturing someone from NY who travels frequently to Naples.

    Very nice cloth on the flannel; do you have a reference? The suit looks great. Progress on my brown hopsack, 3rd/4th fitting; back looks quite good, no? [​IMG]

    Yes; I think three for the first suit, but I'm quite difficult to fit, so he squeezed one more in half a day later.

    Thanks Sanders, i'm not remember the reference, but i'll ask. Wonderful fabrics, pretty warm and soft but very light due to the construction of Neapolitan tailoring. I have to wait a bit before wearing it, far too hot at the moment. I'll revert to you as soon as i have the answer.

    Back looks quite good, beautiful brown, i love brown, i need more brown suit. Sartoria Corcos seem to do really a very great work. It's always difficult for a tailor to do a suit for someone with low shoulders.

    Looks great! I start a new brown suit from him this fall but will probably go for a slightly heavier cloth.

    Oh, they've marked the space where the wings are going to sit!
    Will those be the little ones, style "Cherub" or the really big ones, style "Archangel"?

    Fly them in good health!

    Low, crooked and uneven. :lol: When visiting a new tailor, I actually introduce myself as the hunchback of Notre Dame, so they know what they're in for.
    Thanks! I even got that book at home, perfect.
    Nice, any idea what you will go with? Flannel, lightweight tweed?
    Actually, they will be a shade darker... :devil:

    I have no yet decided, but something mid weight in worsted wool. Any recommendations from you at Kotaro's maybe? :)

    See a nice tredle sewing machine in the background.

    Never thought of you as a hunchback. Some tailors would say sunken chest and forward shoulders. So a crooked cut and a very tight bridle. And lots of room for the shoulder blades.

    I finally found the courage to go from lurker to member here on styleforum, so here comes my first post.

    One of my current bespoke projects is a mid/dark brown adelaide with V Cap and Firenze flower medallion from Roberto Ugolini. I have problematic feet so bespoke shoes seems to be the only route to go for me. Got some pictures of the process + a pair of awesome boots he had on one of his shelfs. I got a pair of other bespoke projects going on but unfortunately haven't gotten any pictures from them :(
