Dear Antirabbit, thanks for the explanation, I understand how important the tailor is, and it's importance is growing with the value of the garment. You mentioned many Italian products, good products. But, they are not brands. Let me underline this difference, because I think it impacts on the consumers. Most of the times the brand's consumer pays not enough attention to the quality of the garments or to what is behind (is it a good garment? where is it...
