    If one is not a topcoat you ned to place another order.

    I'm going to have to go without a proper coat for at least another year. Suits are my priority.

    Sorry if this has been asked before but is Rubinacci RTW available in the US?

    You can get ties, squares, and scarves at the Carlyle.

    You guys should just stop being silly now. Rubi-chichi, Chichi-nelli. All for medium-timers. Camps de Luca is the only way to go if you want the real deal and if you're a big deal (I confirmed with Hey Man). They will engrave your name on the back of the trousers' buttons and hand-embroider your initials between the lining and canvas.

    It's interesting to see the basted stitching (?) on the Rubinacci. It gives you an idea of the shaping they do in the chest and waist, which is what is really attractive to me about their style. Kind of an idealized athletic shape. I don't even know if there's a correlation between the two, but it looks like there might be.

    keep in mind that there seems to be some girth on the waist of the customer, maybe that is a bit of what you are seeing.

    The will also give you a handwritten invoice.

    The parchment on which the numbers are done in calligraphy and antique phoque frame are worth more than most Chan wardrobes.

    I heard about that and it makes my head spin. It is said that the numbers are so perfectly shaped that women swoon at a mere glimpse of the invoice. There's something both magic and primal about it.

    The invoice from A&S is very nice and sort of Edwardian.
