Finally made it to Florence and jumped on the train to Prato to visit the Atelier of Francesco Guida @sartoriafrancescoguida. The place itself is well worth a visit. Big and beautiful front shop as well as spacious workshop. Hundreds of vintage fabrics to choose from. They are very impressive. Will share more pictures from the shop later.
First fitting of the bespoke 3pc suit in summer Palm Beach striped cloth. It truly is perfect for summer being really lightweight and airy.
It went very well. Francesco conducted the fitting while also teaching young apprentice how to do that.
We will lengthen the jacket by 1cm, make the back bigger and shorten the sleeves by 1cm too. It seems like it will be a very light jacket although this is an usual perception during first fitting as there is no lining or second layer of fabric on the inside.
