This is the all-time absolute best French bespoke tailoring deal around:
Jean Rotin, an elderly bespoke tailor, living in Marseilles, working alone, and close to retirement, charges only €1100 CMT for a three-piece suit such as this one, worn by amarezzahi.tumblr.com
A two-piece suit costs only €800 CMT. So a jacket must cost even less, making this a truly bespoke offering for the cost of a ready to wear a jacket. It’s a no-brainer… Judging from seeing this suit up close, the work is very nice. Definitely something worth taking the train or airplane down to Marseilles three times for.
You have to go to Italy to still find tailors charging such low rates. I’ve never heard of a rate this low in France so far.

Here is the tumblr page zampa-di-gallina.tumblr.com, where we rejoice in seeing that they are making Matuozzo shirts and Ciardi suits available MTO. Good luck with this exciting new business venture guys!
