    It is all bespoke save a little bit of RTW sportswear (sweaters, ties, scarves).

    Perhaps a few. Maybe some buttondowns. He used to sell some RTW to shops in the US, but his business is really bespoke suits.

    I would think that Rubinacci has more handwork then Kiton.....

    They don't even have a sewing machine...

    Yes they do! The pants are fused! It's an exclusive process.[​IMG]

    I read it somewhere.... I know that. Will see if I can find the link.

    I would think Rubinacci rivals or exceeds Kiton is everything in terms of suits and perhaps handwork.


    Thus,

    I would take Rubinacci suits over Kiton.... Now if we compare the Kiton K-50..... that's a whole other story.



    Quote from the London Lounge.

    "I visited Rubinacci at Milano, a while ago, where I was told by Luca about the opening in London.
    In the milanese laboratoy tgere where mainly milanese tailors and one neapolitan cutter, and many of them all including he cutter have worked for caraceni.
    Prices were 3600-4000€ for suit.
    Everything handmade including trousers, they do not even own a sewing machine."

    There's been a Rubinacci tie on ebay for $2 BIN for ages. One of you Rubinacci groupies should snatch it up.

    Hahaha

    It looks like the Neapolitans may have begun to breathe some of their own exhaust:

    So what are the criticisms of Rubinacci?

    I often here aesthetic, and what of the gorge? But in detail, what is of concern?

    Now on display in the window of their London shop.



    Why is the jacket famous, other than the fact that it's on his homepage? Is there something super-duper about it?
