1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Haven't read the threak, so apologies for probably repeating others.

    Personally, I feel the Attolinis work best for the OP. His build, esp. his shoulders, must make life difficult for any tailor, but Attolini suits him well. The others aren't bad, of course, but not as flattering IMO.

    How much is C. Attolini Bespoke going for these days? Price
    $8,900-$9,500??

    Is it truly Bespoke now? or Glorified MTM?

    Is it not a remote possibility that a machine padded collar is being used in the Attolini basted fitting and that indeed a hand-padded will be used for the real, official collar?[​IMG]

    That whole video was pretty ambiguous about a lot of things.

    I suppose . . . but what would the point of that be?

    True, but that collar is definitely machine-padded, right?

    I find it vanishingly unlikely that in a gigantic, aircraft-hanger sized factory making RTW clothes for self-branded and third-party global retail that a single machine operation would exist.

    I am willing to bet 2000 of my post count on that undeniable fact.

    That's right: dial me back to the 17000s if you doubt me.

    Definitely, but the video raised more questions about their custom business than it answered.

    The next time someone sits down with Caesar for a salad, they should inquire about whether he hand pads or outsources on his custom jobs.

    I know that I, for one, only eat hand pad thai.
