I am unfazed (q.v.).

Do some of you people ever keep on topic? I get the distinct feeling that you really like the way your keyboard clicks. Perhaps you should try to keep the wisecracks on the how to be a clown forum.

Excuse me. Who invited you? If you don't like it here, there's a more advanced forum where, I'm confident, you'll be a big hit.

Yes, I was wondering who would be representing Sartoria Solito. I would have liked the old man, Gennaro, to come to NYC but realistically, why not his son. Still, Gennaro is the man I would want to cut my coat, and only in his house style.

Also, what cloth books are they bringing along and will they, hopefully, accept bringing our own cloth?

It's always best to counterbalance the lush, extravagant Neapolitan tailoring with solid English cloth.

Personally, I would go for a sports coat/odd trouser commission which can really be sublime as done by the Neapolitans.

Somehow, a heavier, Fall/Winter weight English tweed, or other jacketing cloth, in bold pattern, just works great with a Neapolitan silhouette. It's also going to be a bit more forgiving for the tailor to work with in a first-time commission.

Regarding the Ambrosi trousers, I'd go with a nice, solid-color flannel to complement the sports coat. Again, a bit heavier to ensure the drape and for me, a bit fuller than the default narrower Neapolitan trouser. Ambrosi can make anything.

Or, as an alternative, why not a solid, textured coat with bold patterned trousers. Very cool. These boys are the ones to make something special, out of the usual, for you.

But, anyway, I think that the point is that you would want to line up your cloth before you walk into the meeting with Solito/Ambrosi.

It's too bad that the boys didn't organize to bring a shirtmaker along; it's not too late.... Now that would be a trip!

Indeed, and why not a tie maker as well!

He is talking about bringing swatches from E.G. Capelli for bespoke ties. Not sure what he decided.

They will take customer's cloth.

I don't know what books they are bringing, but when Ambrosi came alone a few years ago, he had books from H&S, Wodehouse, and Drapers. Maybe some others that I don't remember.

I believe he is bringing a selection of ties from Capelli this time.

That would be excellent. He should bring a shirtmaker when he returns in March.

Ambrosi does, but do you know for a fact that Solito will?

Hmmm. No, I guess I don't.
