    I think you should focus more on your pants than on the jackets. While some of the coats are better than others, they are all, at worse, very servicable. Your pants, on the other hand.......


    The Attolini bespoke looks best of all to me. The brown rubinacci jacket seems to have a loose collar and is just not that sharp looking. The Attolini overcoat is weird. The 3 buttons and the high pockets are not that attractive.

    The last one, the Castangia, looks best to me. I like the fit of everything about it, and I think it would probably look better yet without the sweater.

    I dont think any of them look bad. I like the way that the first Attolini fits, and the Attolini navy pinstripe.

    I like the first Rubinacci except the pant. Maybe their Naples shop would work better, the stuff they're putting out for Foo, Matt and Whnay look fantastic.

    I'll say:

    1. Castangia
    2. Rubinacci
    3. Attolini








    n. Steed (just cause i have to rate them)

    I think you need to go with Attoliini shoulders and Rubinacci waist suppression/quarters.

    The Steeds are attrocious (i'm being particularly harsh on them cos they are bespoke).

    Could you be more specific on this?

    Are you trying to start a controversy here?

    I think the sweaters throw them off, steed #3 (red check) looks much better without the sweater.

    sure, buy my pants [​IMG]

    but seriously, I think if he is going to wear the no break trousers, the openings have to be narrower (as was mentioned earlier). Also, on the some of the wool pants, there is a lot of extra fabric in the thigh/upper area. It flares out to the side, on a similar pair I had heismatt said it looked like I was wearing a colostomy bag. I think the Steed's suit pants look a bit incongruent with the jacket, the coat is rather fitted and the pants look like bags in the upper area.


    All that being said, Monti should be commended for posting this stuff for our scrutiny, it is one thing to talk about this brands but quite another to see them in the flesh and also quite informative.

    There is nothing controversial about how exceedingly fantastic I look.

    Just focused on the jackets and their silhouette, I felt the Rubi's were the cleanest.

    Agreed, but I don't think that's a full-on advantage.

    Just to be clear, I am only acting in Vox's place, not mimicking him. I only mimic Iammatt. I think we're stilly going steady, but I can't be for sure about it on his end.

    As long as you use chicken livers in your bolognese you're in.

    How do you mean? For me, the silhouette and drape are a direct result of how most of the rest of the jacket fit. A little bit off in the chest, shoulders or waist would totally throw off the hourglass shape, or make it a bit more angular rather than a nice round curve (like the Attolinis and Steeds). Am I looking at the fits wrongly?

    I would use chicken livers in everything if I could. However, my month-long attempt to diet away fifteen pounds prevents me from enjoying life.

    Part of what I love about the Rubinacci jackets that come out of Naples is the chest shaping. I don't know what tailors call it technically, or how they explain it, but I like it when the cloth of the chest forms a subtle bowl under where one's pectoral muscles are. You almost never see it in RTW and the Milanese Rubinacci jackets posted here exhibit none of it, either.
