Some. I can specify DB or SB, of course, how many buttons and where the lapels roll, pocket config, etc. I also asked for drape, which Luigi refers to as "comfortable." Beyond that, it's all them.
While I was there, Gennaro showed me an interview with him in an English language magazine in which he said something to the effect that "If you want to dictate how your clothes will look, I am not the tailor for you."
