    They look like a gathering of pimps. If this is tailoring, I'm a banana.

    Do you remember the many videos in the cloth thread? Conchita used to love them. They had a purpose..... http://www.bespokechannel.com/

    I will let you know do the rest of the digging but I took me 5 minutes to find out who are the 'hands' in Naples.

    This is a very 'common' jacket made by many sartorias in Naples.

    I bought a Gieves & Hawkes sport jacket in 40R on sale and need its sleeves shortened to accommodate shirt sleeve length 31" and also the jacket waist expanded. I also consider button replacement by Benson & Clegg St George & Dragon antique. I'm in Switzerland and fear local tailors. Would best be to send the jacket to G&H for alterations? (I could ask B&C to send the buttons to G&H.)

    Seems like overkill to send the jacket to G&H for such a little bit of tailoring.

    This SF member is based in Switzerland and wears much re-spoke and seems to find the tailoring acceptable.

    I didn't say it looked good. But at least the Olde Swiss Taylor can sew up a sausage in a woolen casing
