A Traditional Cut

By Daniel Blockert|June 3, 2018|General Menswear|0 comments

Maiden voyage for a new suit from Sartoria Scuderi (based in Cura di Vetralla, north of Rome). A fuller cut in both jacket and pants, combined with medium padded shoulders.

Anyone with a genuine interest in menswear knows the importance of tailoring. I’ve had the opportunity on a number of occasions to order bespoke garments and it’s always a joy to go through the whole process from start to finish. But I would argue that it is possibly even more important to find a really good tailor that can do alterations (bespoke tailors rarely do alterations unless it is on garments they made themselves). After some searching I finally found a good tailor here in Geneva that is trustworthy. But this time they got it wrong (for the first time).
