    I think they all look great in their own way. I'd be happy with any one of them. All of them seem to have a more relaxed style than one often sees which I appreciate. They are not clean and lean. The one thing I might suggest is to lower your next commission a half inch. On some items the quarters seem a bit scrunched.

    Thanks for the comparison! Very gracious of you.


    Looking at the photos more carefully, I'd actually give the nod to the Attolini's primarily because the length is around 1/2 inch longer than the Rubinacci's and Steed's.

    The jackets all look very nice, but for me, Steed #4 and 5 take the cake. They have more character compared to the other jackets. Those are the most anonymous-looking Rubis I've seen.

    This is a bit off the point, but it's the fabrics and mixing which I find unsuitable. I find virtually all the sportcoats too loud and they become even worse when combined with other items which really don't blend elegantly at all.
    Even the plain navy suit is thrown off by that wild pocket square. The dinner jacket of course is fine - not a lot you can do to mess that up. Sorry. I'm sure most Americans will object to my assessment, however.

    In the photos, the Attolini's look more harmonious somehow. But, since I've seen some of these worn in real life, I'm not so sure my preferences based on these photos would translate.

    Just check out where the coats land on Monty's thumbs. They are lower on the Attolini's while right at the bottom of the thumb on the Rubinacci's and Steed's. This makes the quarters appear more balanced to my eye.

    I like some English stuff more than the rubis posted, but I like steed's clothing, almost to a piece, less than almost every other English tailor.

    I think the real issue here is : what the fuck do you do, and how can i do it? Suits look great, Attolini looks the best. -Geoff

    After 6 pages of discussion, it's good to see someone finally cut right to the heart of the issue.

    Thanks.

    That was a moderately serious question, too.

    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 Matt look fantastic.


    FTFY.
