    Greetings, D. E.

    Yes, that’s the post I found this video from. Parisiangentleman has done much to reveal the make and level of French tailors, which may just top most of Savile Row. With their prices, it should.

    Dear Ville,

    I had the pleasure a while ago of providing Jeffery Diduch of Tuttofattoamano with a handed-down Smalto coat that he subsequently dissected, to reveal extraordinary craftsmanship and attention to detail – have a look (if you haven’t read this already which I am almost sure, you have):

    Best wishes,
