I will be in Naples and Capri next week and I was wondering if you could recommend some stores, tailors etc. In Naples: Rubinacci, Attolini etc. comes to mind. I'm looking for some nice Neapolitan shirts. I'm especially looking for local craftsmen that sell products for far less than the more famous names. I'd also very much appreciate some tips in terms of "good value for money" stores.. Thanks in advance!
Really interesting thread! Thanks!
Have a look at Tipton from Budapest. Someone posted some nice hand-made shades from them in the Vass thread.
I know that you can get Carmina shoes from a few shops in Barcelona. One is on the Rambla de Catalunya.

I would recommend the following: Aux Laines Ecossaises Arnys Charvet Dries Van Noten ( http://www.esquire.com/blogs/mens-fa...enswear-100710 )
Thanks so much everyone for your comments! I really appreciate your feedback. If anyone reading this (who is involved in the business) wishes to be involved (ex. interview etc.) then please be in touch.

The Rhinelander mansion on Madison Avenue is definitely worth checking out as well. :-) I think you can find Charvet ties and shirts at Bergdorf's.
