    I think the best is to look at books at your tailor. I am pretty sure you can find many cloths like this.

    Why haven't we started our own style forum cloth club?

    Effort, most likely.

    I know leaves was thinking about being able to middleman for cut lengths, or something like that but that's different

    I originally thought your suits were too tight but the video shows them in a better light. It seems like you've got basics covered. Not sure why you were originally inquiring about all those cloths. Keep the post coming mang.

    My one experience with an Italian tailor suggests otherwise, but I thought a decent length was to the level of your knuckles with the arms at rest.

    I've brought it up on this before, but there doesn't seem to be much interest. From other experiences of group buys it is a lot of effort and requires one person to accept payments and and chase people up.

    Which knuckles? We have lots of them.

    What is needed is an actual system and interface to front-load interest and pre-orders. It needs to be a crowd sourced type thing.

    That being said, given past precedent and zero oversight, that would quickly be abused by the Gianni Cerrutis of the world.
