I bet Mariano has his opinions on the matter, too. My dinner suit was the opposite of what he suggested in almost every respect, but we both agree the results are great. I don't think they mess up very often.
No shawl for you? So sad
But I reiterate: FOOD. Ignore the Naples pessimism above. Even if there were no tailors and you had to negotiate through open sewage to get from place to place, the food would still make the city worth visiting. Matt gave me some fantastic suggestions for when I visited. My wife and I adored each restaurant on the list:
Ciro a Magellina
Europeo di Matozzi
If you can only do one big meal, definitely go to Da Dora. Order whatever seafood they recommend. If seafood isn't your thing--well, consider getting out of Naples--Europeo is a good bet. Best pasta ever.
