Let me know the numbering and tag info as well as the dealer, and I will get back to you about the exact piece you have purchased and its specific production history and details. OK? Hope this is helpful...
    Best wishes, Geoffrey

    If you are in China, eth0s, one of our affiliates, is hosting a GBS event.

    It came from re-porter, a montreal-based consignment store.
    No tags or info with it, but I have to say it really has surpassed my already very high expectations. Incredible materials, buttons, construction... I've been wearing it every day since it arrived. Brilliant.

    Default some notes on the LUJ10

    Thanks Zamb, Old, Surver, Sistr, March27... Sorry to take so long to get back to you all, it is very, very busy here and Paris is coming up fast...

    Our word from Eth0s is the opening there went extremely well, and I will try to put up something about it soon. In the meantime, many thanks Surver for the images you have put up already and all of the great work you did regarding your involvement with the event.

    In regards to the LUJ10 that Sistr (*and March27) inquired about, without the original data it is a little tough for me to track it down exactly. Some of the pieces may have been signed inside with the name of the dealer we made it for. You can check for that and let me know, and that would help us identify it and its exact production series history. In any case, I am very glad to hear the piece is working well for you, I have one myself, and also like it very much. It is very wearable in warm weather and superlight and easy to put on with just about anything. Though each of the LUJ10's are a little different depending on when they were made and who they were made for, they all have the following characteristics which I can share with you both, Sistr and March27.


    The super limited edition LUJ10 was first introduced in our June 2009 Paris collection presentation and was later produced in very limited quantities for deliveries for spring 2010, 2011 and 2012 respectively. A total of only 15 pieces have been made in the entire world to date.

    It was made using our own original pattern with a special late 19th century split lapel seaming detail design and then cut in an exclusive greggio tailor’s pure superlight linen (which was not treated or finished with any chemicals) that was created and woven only for us by Luigi Parisotto and family in Sarcedo, Italy in a very limited quantity of about 29 meters.

    After building the piece to its main phase of construction, we then specially cold hand dyed it in our studios for minimum carbon impact and maximum patina effects, as part of our pioneering of this technique in the Paris collection that the LUJ10 came from, which first introduced the technique in June 2009.

    The design also features remarkable olive wood buttons that were made for us in Padova, Italy and then finished by hand in our workrooms at Cavarzere, along with real working handstitched surgeon cuffs sleeve buttonholes, and a total of 12 hand stitched buttonholes (each one requires 8-10 minutes to cut and sew) executed with pure silk Bozzolo threads that required at least two hours alone of expert work to create them. A special interior pocket design on one side of note was also executed using invisible patch pocket application technique and hand stitch finishing, along with the 3 other hand made classic besom pockets on the jacket.

    We advise all owners to please treat buttons and buttonholes with care, and recommend professional clean only or hand wash extra gentle in cold water and protecting buttons with foil or plastic wrap when washing, and hang drying in air naturally. To maximize the life of the garment and its characteristics for the owner, we ask that you do not put it in washing machines or machine dryers, or wash with other items.

    Our goal is to have all our pieces finished well enough as to be wearable inside out, and the LUJ10 is no exception. To maintain its maximum lightness and ensure its top quality , the interior was partially-lined with an antique striped viscose lining cloth that was specially woven for us in Como Italy by Tessitura Mauri, and then all beautifully clean finished with Italian bias-binding satin 'raise' tapes from Padova, and extensive french-seam detail work.

    I provide some images for our workroom archives for viewers of the LUJ10 and various detail views here below.

    As for March27's request, please note that for a long list of reasons, we do not authorize any ecommerce shopping sites to sell our work online anywhere in the world. Clients can contact our dealers directly with inquiries and make arrangements via email if they are far away to purchase our work. Of the 15 pieces made in the world, you may still find one of them among the dealers we made them for. Our archives indicate the LUJ10 was produced for IF in New York, '4' in Kuwait, Minority Rev in Japan, and Hostem in London. If none are available, depending on where you are, you may also contact any one of our current authorized dealers who handle our made to order services, and they may be able to arrange to have one made for you depending upon fabric and workroom time availability and current waiting lists.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Best wishes and thanks again, Geoffrey

    I just read this entire thread in one shot, really excellent stuff. I doubt I'll ever see any GBS in person, let alone be able to afford it, but it's still all very interesting.

    Thank you very much A Fellow Linguist, I hope you will indeed be able to see our work in person and I will try to do my best to somehow make it a reality for you- if you are in Paris and to all other SZer's in Paris at this time please note...

    Our show will be dedicated to people very dear to us who have, and are, passing away, who shared work with us on our collections, and to their families,and their sons and daughters, our dear friends- who continue to work with us today; and to all fathers, and to all mothers, and their families, with whom we share this short, precious, and fragile time together that we call life, on this precious and fragile place we call earth. Very simply, we think it's a time for respect, for togetherness and for love. So, we will try to do a runway show that will reflect this message in the best way we can under the circumstances.

    Albeit, the last thing I wanted to do was to conflict with Eugene's SZ Mag launch event and other parties... fashion calendar scheduling requirements forced us to show on Saturday night at 8.30 PM. And we are very sorry. Few things have helped us communicate what we are about and contributed to our steady growth in supporters around the world in the past few years, than this forum. However, the showspace is a very close walk to the SZ Party location, and we will be encouraging everyone at the show by word of mouth and on our printed program to head right over after it is over. We will also be spreading the word about the next night's Stealthprojekt party as well to everyone too. If you are in Paris and an SZ reader, and wish to attend our show, you will definitely need an invite. So for your convenience and urgency, please find a special SZ guest pass that you can print and bring to the door to see the show. You are now cordially invited. And we look forward to seeing you if you can make it.

    Best wishes and thank you,

    Geoffrey
