 A problem evident in Europe as well. I really see an increasing interest in locally made goods, though. I hope our economies will find their way back to those business models in the future.
That's an awesome photo! Does Maomao have a tumblr or something alike?
 You wanna show off your ass - fine - go buy short jackets and look like a douche. A good and/or slim fit does not mean the jacket has to be short, though.
 9cm is not that much for lapel width, imo, so I'd say the pocket flaps are proportioned accordingly. Are you familiar with the rule of three? You could measure the lapel-width from pictures and calculate the actual flap size. I don't know how important your need for the info is, though, so you might just rely on your eye and decide wether it looks good or not.
 There is a wide range of models, with different overall sillouttes, wide and narrow lapels, the respective flaps etc. You have to be more specific.
 Really nice colors and textures, but the jacket looks about 2 inches too short.
 Like I said, Ambrosi may be a bad example here; but imagine someone pushing their tailors/cobblers/etc. in a way some people post on here. Everybody's a tough-guy on the internet, yeah, but I think some here would actually talk that way to others. Just an observation, expectations may easily be deviating in two different (business) cultures.
 Funny you would say that, I have a LE tie I bought second hand and it knots way better than the Cappellis or any other ties I have.
The thing I see not only in this thread - but in all frictions between members of this forum and craftsmen - is that it's mostly between people from different cultural backgrounds and thus different habits of conducting business. When going to another country / having them come to you, you should always keep that in mind: Italians specifically have their traditional way of doing things as opposed to Brits/Americans, who are used to another pace of "turnaround time" - no...
 That's kinda what I meant; I remember the thread in which Foo stated that his AM shirts came apart and all that, but never read anything (positive or negative) about Finollo on SF. I came across them years ago when I saw one of their beautiful ties and then again when Vox posted a video. In any case, I thought about paying them a visit in Genova to check out their stuff, but after reading they charge 650€ for a bespoke shirt they seem like yet another Italian name living...
