So The Sartorialist 2009 starts for me today in London!
I’m in London for a meeting today and then tomorrow I’ll do a fitting for my first real “bespoke” suit by Savile Row legends Anderson & Sheppard.
I will try to keep a little diary on the progress of the suit and the some of the issues involved in ordering such a fine work of hand craftsmanship.
Of course my first concern was not about double-breasted or Super 120′s – but how much should I workout before my fitting.
Do I want my suit to be for my “Winter body” or my “Summer body”?
I decided i would rather go in at my high weight and come back later for a “bespoke” tweed swimsuit for my summer body (maybe with a matching vest!).
Anyway, after London I will go to Florence for Pitti Uomo and then on the to…well, below is the schedule – or as they say in London “schedule” (I guess you have to hear me say it for that to be funny).
London January 7th – 9th
Florence January 10th – 16th
Milan January 17th – 20th
Paris January 21st – 25th
Stockholm January 26th – 29th
Rome January 30th – February 2nd
It’s a long trip but I hope to get lots of great images.
This Sunday I might take the train to Modena and Bologna for the day. Any suggestions for great menswear shops in those two cities?
