On Nyc no idea. I visited their huge factory a few weeks ago to salute my friends there.
Hi I have seen Letterman this days on Italian tv on replays of May and the suits looked as your links, English wide rtw look nor South Italian that are soft, slim and fit as an scuplture. Why a sicilian is doing a 1994 English cut? best
Finamore is ok.only rtw on mtm are terrible. They did 3 times a shirt for me and any was good. Go to the 40 million dollars Kiton shop.on NYC and try it. And try Borrelli and Barba as well.

Interesting, also the fact a garmrnt than in Sicilu might cost low, on NYC sure might cost more than a car.Got any picture of his style?
The first has very wide sleeves but on that age was ok, the second likes me more.The DB jacket of Cagney on Angels with dirty faces of the 30's is simply perfect and even for todays standart is slim fitted etc. I remember talking with the boss of a tailoring house with shops on NYC about that film, as the prior night was emited on a local tv, telling that most american tailors, those old perfect ones, literally docens of thousands were sicilian and he told me all learnt...
