Exactly this. I was talking to a Parisian tailor whose work I really admire. His prices were 2.25x as expensive as my tailor in Italy, and I work with one of the more expensive ones there.MB's stuff looks fantastic but for roughly 1/3 the price, I'm beyond enamored with the stuff I have gotten from Naples.
Ha, I missed out Steed. I have no doubt he can do as well as C&M and MB. There was a time all three were in the same place on the row... good choiceI only use Steed and Formosa and won't be switching any time soon. I don't want to think about what C&M or Michael Browne's prices are like given the new tariffs.
I have no experience with Colombo, but Carlo Barbera (at least the old stuff) was exceptional.Not sure if this is the right thread, as it isn't a query regarding cloth for bespoke/MTM, but I was looking at two pure cashmere coats in Suitsupply. One was cloth from Colombo, and the other Carlo Barbera. Does anyone have any opinion on if one should expect a difference in quality between the cloths?
The lapped seams I saw from C&M were a bit more pronounced than what I’m looking to do. I will see how things work out next year.Ha, I missed out Steed. I have no doubt he can do as well as C&M and MB. There was a time all three were in the same place on the row... good choice
Let's hope I didn't choose the wrong piece to do it with because this looks awful.I actually don't love lapped seams on everything. I like it on sportcoats and I like it on trouser outseams, but all else is kind of handwork for handwork's sake and a bit too flashy.
That's the one.^ Isn’t that one by Liverano? I seem to recall Simon had a purple SC from Liverano, but not sure if that’s it.
See shoulder seem of an Italian suit. The one's made by C&M were a bit more pronounced.Is lapped seams the same as pick stitching spaced from the lapel seam?
