Think the op­po­site

Plaza Uomo USA - - MANUAL -

A lot of fash­ion bibles rec­om­mend that you al­ways stick to a tai­lor's spe­cial­ity or area of ex­per­tise. Gen­er­ally speak­ing that means that Bri­tish tai­lors should fo­cus on mak­ing heavy flannel suits and tweed jack­ets while Ital­ian tai­lors keep to suits from light wool and linen. We dis­agree. Some amaz­ing pieces have been made by tai­lors who've ven­tured out­side their as­signed fields – from Brits mak­ing linen sum­mer suits or cash­mere over­coats to Ital­ians mak­ing un­lined, soft struc­tured tweed jack­ets.
