Me too. Probably an overcoat rather than a suit, though. This only because I have the foo-disease of liking to have same things the same.

Do all your mini-me's look like Foo?

Very true. Ambrosi is quite good, though, so maybe he is the one to take this up with. He can prod them along.

You know, we never got this straight. Who is Ambrosi's real BFF? Foo or Matty?

It's part of the contract.

I don't have nearly as much experience with Naples as Matt and Uppercase, but every elegant man we met there had very particular opinions about the local tailoring scene, and they often nodded with respect when they found out I used Rubinacci. The general consensus seems to be that Rubinacci makes one of the best quality products in Naples--but at a price that most don't want to pay. If you don't get Mariano's personal time at London House, you're missing out.

It's understandable that you'd want your minions to be devilishly handsome.

Are you rubbing Rogaine all over your body?

I await the CakeSouffleâ„¢, the souffle that is also a cake, with baited breath and salival mouth.

Pet peeve.

Is that a suitable cake? Or is it a BlazerSouffle?

I added the trademark symbol because I think we have found a slogan that can work for LH.

Honestly, I would be a bit wary of it otherwise.

Ha. Well, keep in mind tailoring in Naples is cheaper than a lot of other places. You and I both know Rubinacci costs no more than the best English firms.

I think 'wary' might be going too far--although, honestly, I wouldn't know firsthand. My DB suit was fitted without Mariano's presence. Luca and Genaro did a great job.

This, unfortunately, is not entirely true anymore...unless that firm is Huntsman.

Oh that's right--the London prices took a leap. What about the Naples prices?
