A nice little video here from our launch event in Milan for the Permanent Style 2015 book. Not much substance I’m afraid – more a promotional sting than anything else – but there are some nice shots of Simone, Fabio et al.

My jacket appears to be running scared up my back, but then John Kent did always cut a small back. Very clean when you’re standing up, less practical when you’re sitting down, signing books and shaking hands.

Simon,

Lovely film and a smashing suit by Mr Kent. I do wish however that you would reconsider the size of the opening of the jacket cuffs. These seem way too wide / open to me. I know you want to keep the flexibility of being able to use double cuff shirts, but I would in that case just suggest using narrower shirt cuffs (Luca emulated my narrow T&A shirt cuffs on my first commission from him).

A good example is Connery’s Bond:

With a turnback shirt cuff (width as a barrel cuff): http://screenmusings.org/movie/blu-ray/Dr-No/pages/Dr-No-102.htm

With double shirt cuff:

Hi Simon,
Thanks for sharing this video.
Arguably, when you speak of suits, you do have in mind at least a level 3 in the old rating system. Don’t you?

Hi Simon,
I Wonder whether a non canvassed jacket could ever be canvassed through alteration.
