This tumblr is just supposed to bring inspiration and reflects what I consider elegance is about. For any question, send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bonjour, je prendrais la Washington et irais chez le retoucheur pour ajuster la coupe. Le tissu Carlo Barbera aura un meilleur tombé et sera moins froissable.
Les mélanges lin-coton sont très agréables à porter mais froissent rapidement.
Don’t pay too much attention to the 100/110/150/200s. It’s vastly overrated by sales departments…
The Havana traveler seems like a good choice to me
I’d say buy less, buy better indeed. However it depends how many suits you have. If you have one or two, it’s better to get to five relatively not to worn them out fast.
Definitely prefer La Spalla to Jort
Regarding Camiceria Olga, I’d say: if it’s too god to be true, then it’s too good to be true.
Opt for Kamakura shirts or Luxire (only the top fabrics like Alumo or Gandi & Rubinelli).
I’m happy you feel that I might be able to answer your question. Basically, charcoal is definitely a must and works well. I own several, actually 3 charcoal suits.
I’d definitely opt for SuitSupply over most MTM programs as most of them are disappointing, especially given the fact that they have so many cuts / lines that it’s difficult not to find a good one for you.
Charcoal gives you the perfect opportunity to play a lot with ties and shirts (especially with patterns). Mid grey is a solid choice as well.
If it’s within your budget, do opt for “La Spalla” line which is fully canvassed and has very nice details (in addition to being fully canvassed at probably one of the lowest retail prices on the market).
My pleasure! I actually live in Luxembourg. The best alterations place is by far Retouches Manu, rue des Bains. They work extremely well and even changed a Brioni shoulder to something much better than it used to be. I trust them with everything.
