Hirsh, you really do not know what you are talking about.... Most of what she offers is Carlo Riva, and Carlo Riva is 180/2... G&R and DJ Anderson offers shirting on the 200+ but also have a smaller offering at those counts and will be a minimal part of what she offers.Sarto di Napoli, if you are a student of shirtmaking and sartoria in Naples, would be better to approach her directly rather then going through a foreign customer.
