1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hello Gentleman,

    I am sure you are aware that London House Napoli at Via Filangieri 26 is the best known, and many say the greatest of all Neopolitan tailoring houses. It is now operated by the heir Luca Rubinacci, who has inherited a classic house cut which originated from a partnership Vincenzo Attolini in Naples. Annual production is just ~1000 pieces, with prices starting at $6500.

    Rubinacci suits are almost never seen on B&S because they are so rare, let alone a staple grey Rubinacci suit. You can do a check on B&S and you can count the number of times they appear with one hand. This is a bespoke suit (look at the rolling at the edges of lapels - a hallmark of a handmade lapel!) so there is no size indicted. Closest size would be a EU 52/UK 42. However if you would like, simple alterations by taking in the back can allow a fit for a EU50/ UK40.

    This highly sought Rubinacci suit is in a classic one button. Chest canvas and shoulders are extremely light - true Neapolitan style! Hand basted canvas front with hand padded lapels. Handsewn shoulder and armhole. Handstitched lapels and pockets. Handsewn buttonholes; signature striped sleeve lining; real horn signature Rubinacci buttons; 3 external pockets and 3 internal pockets. There are 4 button-kissing working cuffs, and is double vented. It is fully lined and fully canvassed and handmade at every single area. Excellent condition - no marks, no pulls, no stains or smells. The only minus, if you are a perfectionist, is that there was a small mend next to the inside pocket (picture #11), which is completely concealed.

    Jacket Measurements:

    Pit to pit: 22"
    Collar to Hem: 32"
    Inner sleeve: 17.5"
    Shoulder to cuff: 25" (functioning sleeves)
    Shoulder to shoulder: 18.5"

    Trousers Measurements:

    Waist 38-34 (Waist adjusters to 34 inches)
    Length: 31" (3"-4" available at hem of trousers)
    Pleated fronts
    - No back pockets: which also means that there will be No issues for your tailor to take in the waist.
