I have stuff from Solito, NSM, and a suit on the way from I Sarti Italiani. I don't have the Sarti suit yet, but I liked how it looked at the final fitting. One sleeve cuff just needs to be let out. The rest looked good to me.Has anyone commissioned anything frlm Sartorial Formosa at one of their trunk shows? Or any other traveling Italian/Neapolitan tailors who (in normal times) are doing NYC trunk shows?
I think they're a little more expensive than €1000 for a suit. I paid a little over $2,000 for mine and I used cotton. But they're more affordable than most.I Sarti Italiani came around last month to NYC. Next trip will be September or October I think. Prices are still €1000 CMT for a suit before price bump end of year.
I paid around 1900 euros. Rip my bank account. I got a jacket in Zegna fabric and trousers in Drapers 4ply.Just looked at my bill and it's €1659, but that includes fabric.
They make a nice jacket but like any traveling tailor there will be mistakes from time to time.Has anyone commissioned anything frlm Sartorial Formosa at one of their trunk shows? Or any other traveling Italian/Neapolitan tailors who (in normal times) are doing NYC trunk shows?
Fabric is a 98% cotton 2% elastane from Zegna. They sent me this photo of the suitI paid around 1900 euros. Rip my bank account. I got a jacket in Zegna fabric and trousers in Drapers 4ply.
Also I am curious about the fabric you picked for your suit. What mill is it from and how dark is the taupe? If you don't mind me asking.
Oh right, also The Anthology guys are coming to NYC over summer, hopefully. Their house style is pretty Italian, almost Florentine. Can't wait to try them out! Getting a jacket in this fabric.

Shhhhhh, no one needs to know that. By the way, thank you @Bespoke DJP for sharing all your knowledge regarding the fabrics, I am still a newb.Well, my dear @Crispyj,
Your jacket was / is not in "a" Zegna fabric, this is 14Milmil14: its wool composition is 14 microns / S' 180 + linen, silk, cashmere, all at the EZ quality!
Mind you that when the price will be forgotten, the pleasure of the garments will still be there!
Enjoy them in health!
