It's a very contemporary/seasonal looking cloth. I don't know how it will look like in five years time.

Last Pastena order in WBill linen. Pleased with the result. The handwork is amazing. Antonio did an excellent job.

This is an incredible looking suit, which I guess is partially down to the fact that your figure is great and probably easy to tailor for. However, I will never understand why bespoke guys seem to want all those buttons on the trousers. What is the purpose of that? I also might have gone with a single pleat, but that’s just my taste. Overall an incredible piece.

You're right about buttoning overdose. It's just a matter of bespoke conventions and neapolitan baroque tradition (surely not a diogenic approach). I'll tend over simplicity for the next suit order.

I find the button proliferation drapes better. My tailor (Neapolitan) mentioned that I'm one of only a few of their American clients who goes with buttons vs. a zipper at the crotch. So I guess part of it is just what people are used to.

I think he's referring to the double button waistband that has become popular with online tailoring enthusiasts.
