    Most tailors will simply not charge you the VAT in the first place. That's a lot better deal than the refund because, in addition to the speed factor, with refunds you never get back the full amount.

    However, if you pick the suit up in London, you have no choice but to pay the VAT and apply for the refund.


    My advice Kuro is to have the goods finished and then mailed to you. Saves a lot of the hassle.

    Thanks.

    Lookin' good mafoo.

    I agree. Much more natural than the sport jackets.

    btw, What is the total number of coats/suits that you are currently rotating, and what percentage are Rubinacci?

    Not many. Two suits and four sportcoats.

    Is that the wedding suit?

    Yessir. A couple more pics in my blog.

    Now that I'm forcing people to have Google IDs to post, all the racist comments have stopped coming. Unfortunately, that means all the comments have stopped coming.

    You used to get racist comments? That's pathetic. What did they say?

    I am the world's greatest shirtmaker and decided to raise my prices recently.

    Is there Rubinacci store in Paris, or some other place where I can buy Rubinacci products?
    Thanks.

    Just read through this interminable thread.
    When I first saw Rubinacci jackets it was on the
    Web and I was very impressed. I said to myself
    that when I win the Lottery, I'll go to Naples
    and get some of their clothes. Upon seeing member photos
    in Rubinacci, over the months, I've changed my mind.
    They seem too close fitting, too short with too much shoulder,
    not suited to my build. I am "thick" with broad shoulders
    and a big chest. Even when I ran 25 miles/week, I was
    only a size smaller but lacked a gut. Vox's clothes
    from Steed are closer to what I like and even they
    seem a bit tight. Maybe it's my Ivy League background.
    For years I wore Chipp I and Norman Hilton, shaped
    but not too close fitting. In Rubinacci, one Pizza would
    throw off the fit.

    Hmm. I eat a lot of pizza while wearing my jackets, and they don't get tight. Ask Manton: I ate half a baguette, a bowl of lobster chowder, and an entire ribeye steak for lunch the other day, but my jacket still buttoned up fine afterward.

    My guess is that you get so much shape out of a Rubinacci jacket that they can appear tighter than they really are. Also, I don't know what you mean about the built-up shoulders. Mine have zero padding, except for a small triangle of wadding at the seam.

    Wow, so you've decided not to try Rubinacci after you win the lottery? Seems a shame. Maybe you should call to let them know not to expect your patronage.
