If you're going to Naples and doing everything there, I think you're off to a good start. If you are happy with the outcome, I suggest continuing to do fittings if you can, even if they are in NY, LA, wherever. One mistake I have made is assuming that once the fit was right, I no longer needed to do fittings. Naive on my part. Also, up the hill there's a nice wine store. Enjoy yourself!

That challis is beautiful.
A few wines over the Masters weekend: 89 Cos d'Estournel: for my tastes, firing on all cylinders and ready to go.

Northern Thai is their specialty (which I don't know...
That looks great. What is the fabric?
Absolutely. If you like to eat, it's a must in Vegas. Probably in the shittiest strip mall in the world, but the food is out of this world. ETA: it also has one of the best winelists I have seen, especially if you like German Riesling.
