    I like this thread much more than the article, which I didn't read.

    Looking forward to what you think. I was going to do my first bespoke suit this year but instead went bespoke shoes. Maybe next year I can do my first bespoke suit.

    This finished suits look like more a stylish RTW than bespoke... Quite large shoulders then you have this very noticeable waist suppressing and then you've the skirt of the jacket made much wider. This jacket is far too short and this makes the wide skirt very noticeable. Frankly quite bad and worrying from Rubinacci, i've seen better from them...

    I have seen pretty substantial variances - stylistically speaking - from Rubinacci garment to Rubinacci garment. I do not care for the suit that Rubinacci made for Mr. Coggins. However, I like a lot of what Rubinacci has made for Bill and Matt. I think they have a pretty wide range.

    I like both, but you're comparing two diff cutters.

    But isn't the whole point of Rubinacci is that there is not much in the way of variance between cutters? I thought that was - in part - what the Paone thread was about. In any event, there are a lot of persons at play when it comes to Rubinacci. You have Luca, Mariano, Chiara, various cutters - I think they all have slightly different styles. Further, Mr. Coggins might have requested a more eyetalian suit.

    I like Rubinacci - I just don't care for this particular suit. It may be the angle. But aesthetically it does not do much for me. I find everything a bit tight.

    Horses for courses, but I think that DB looks great.

    Rubinacci only has one head cutter in Naples, Andrea. Paone no longer works for Rubinacci.

    Stuff you've seen on this forum was drafted by Paone. David's suit was by Andrea.

    Out of curiosity - although they have one head cutters, how many cutters are there working in Naples? I would not think that every suit passed by Andrea's eyes, but I could be incredibly incorrect. To be honest, I know fairly little about Rubinacci's system.

    When I visited a few years ago, they had four cutters and thirty tailors. But that was when Paone was working there alongside Andrea and Lino. Two of those people are now gone, so I don't know what the system is like. Thirty tailors includes coatmakers and trousermakers. And Lino was the head trouser cutter; he didn't work on coats.

    That DB lookss great,,,,[​IMG]
    Look at that waist suppression, the length and the skirt of the jacket, all wrong. I understand if the client asked something trendy but otherwise i don't see why a tailor would do this. I reiterate, to me this suit is more a RTW than bespoke...It's nothing to do with the style, it's just not adapted to the wearer.
