They do look padded. But Mariano's don't to me.
In several I would have chosen "none of the choices" but this option not offered. It said I am a music lover. True, but almost exclusively classical music, not the choices offered. I attend 40+ live performances a year. The last rock concert I attended was the Beach Boys tour in 1986. I was however at Woodstock.
I'll be there in 10 days. Can't wait.
You guys are rank amateurs! This is Style Forum, not a place to parade your ingnorance. The "standard" Blue shirt is doubtless an example of the fine work of Camiceria Fonduta one of Italy's most exclusive shirtmakers. Its' atelier may be found in one of the quiet residential quartiere of Ischia.

I'll be in Naples, Rome and MIlan in a few weeks and am not even consideringgetting anything made, because I won't be around for fittings, nor would I want to have to fly toNew...
Winston Tailors ( Chipp) I used to get MTM from them before I moved to CA. High quality trad and trad-derived. Not sure of prices now. http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/05/27/a-tailor-who-caters-to-a-certain-taste/ 28 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036 (212) 687-0850
