I will in Florence and Rome for a combined 10 days starting early next week, and am looking for shirtmakers. I've gleaned the names of Siviglia and Cafelli in Rome, and Bugelli and Stefanelli in Florence from this board and others. I am looking for a reasonably priced shirt, say $80-$150, and really am interested more in getting something that fits than exquisite, luxury fabrics, etc. Tall and relatively thin, I need sleeves that are 36.5" or so. Can't find many in a trim 15.5 neck in RTW, thus the need for MTM (which reminds me, I have to put up for sale a Lorenzini formal shirt from eBay that was mis-measured). I've done MTM before in the US with varying results and want to try an Italian maker. I've found Patro in Lucca on the web, and may visit there. Looking for other suggestions - the names I mentioned above appear to be on top end, and probably out of my price range. When I've walked through the streets of these cities, especially Rome, there seem to be so many makers...
