Oh good, you found this thread! I was about to post a link...I bought these for around $2K US back in 2000. Prices have gone up quite a bit. I benefited from a nice exchange rate at the time. I also bought a bunch of Kiton dress shirts in Milan at the same time for a great price-$120-150.
Most European makers travel to the US with tailors on trunk shows. Jason may be in NYC in November at the Benjamin, a hotel favored by the bespoke crowd.
Jason can do nice antiquing if asked. Silvano sometimes goes to the Louis Boston Artisan Collaborative.
