Sorry I missed this topic first time around, but for those of you considering Florence for bespoke, you've got a couple Cisternino tailors as options - Rodolfo (see posts above, looks like great work) and Piero. For more on my experience with Piero you can check out my posts on 6 and 13 September '16. I'll return to him again next time I'm in Florence. I had to break up my first commission in two trips (after the first measurement) because I had only 4 days for each...
I just ordered three 7-fold ties; SartodiNapoli has been very gracious with his time in sharing the selection of silks.

I'm enjoying the thread on East Sicily but I won't have enough time in the Messina area. Thanks for any advice you can give.

With this special line Borrelli brings back a cherished period of fine hand made Neapolitan suitmaking into the contemporary. For you romantics, imagine yourself in 1957 walking down Madison Avenue or having just picked up your suit from Luigi Borrelli's shop in Naples strolling down the high energy thoroughfare of Spaccanapoli. This Luxury Vintage collection is based on the original designs Luigi Borrelli created in 1957. 3-roll-2 button jacket, double vented, soft...
