[quote=medtech_expat;3407539]Why would Andrea or Simone refuse your MTM order??[/QUOTE
I donÂ´t know, this has been widely talked on the shirt p o r n thread.
He did a spare collar for me to replace a non wide spread one RTW from him, top service!! , But never sent me the cotton samples he told me he would. I guess I sent him so many emails remembering that and asking technical questions as why in neapolitan shirts the second button( high breast one ) is not at the same distance as on non neapolitan etc that he could think I was some spy from Zara or whatever. He asked me to go Naples instead...
My plan was to ask him around 6 to 10 mtm shirts per year so I donÂ´t understand him.
I would like to know, honest. As I got several Finamores and love them, IÂ´ll put one in a box tomorrow to have it copied by Barba. I donÂ´t have other solution...
What do you guess ?

the shirts are cut very beautifully. the barbas really accentuate the male torso and is very flattering when your correct size. hand work is there but im not as big on handwork and construction as i am on fit and look.
The fit would be perfect as they would be mtm, also here in the mediterranean the shops buy only the slimmest fashion forward lines so they might fit me perfect, not as those huge ones I got from the states as we talked. In fact I got one rtw from an italian brand , xacus that fits me better than some mtm ones.
Both fit and look but with handwork for 180 would be great but IÂ´ve been told that line is machine made.
