I normally get my shirts bespoke because OTR shirts tend to fit me badly, but I bought two shirts in one of these shops and the fit was OK and I am still quite happy with them (although my housekeeper has made her very best to destroy one of them by applying excessive pressure on the iron, to get the collar nice and shiny), and a friend of mine has a few of them and they fit him great and look good; nice stripes and colours. This is not high-end stuff, it is quite cheap I believe to recall, and I must say that I think that it is OK value for money.

Any reccomendations accesory wise (ties and such?)

The Zegna outlet stocks ties. Not many shoes usually.

Spoken by someone who obviously have not had pizza in Napoli. Brooklyn pizza is good, but does not match up to that in Naples.

The only northeast pizza I've had that is on par with what I ate in Napoli (and also Calabria) is Bricco in Boston's north end and also a place called Za in Kendall Square.  I admit, I've never searched BK beyond the "normal" spots so perhaps my ignorance with regard to BK pizza is skewing my opinion.

There's a store in West Palm, too.

there is only one answer to this question................

cheese........anything locally produced is fine - but don't miss smoked ricotta (should look like a mound of blackened snow) ......or if you must have two choices you can add risotto Milanese to your list.

shopping in Milan is preposterously expensive - you might try the 10 Corso Como outlet for deep discounts on super premium attire - but even this won't be cheap.

generally speaking you are better off price wise to shop for clothes in the US or go the outlying outlets as previously mentioned. The problem with the outlet shopping is that you will spend all of your time in the boring part of town shopping for clothes instead of being in the sweet center of town where the interestingnessosity is.

By the way - the hottest store amongst the locals is Ralph Lauren's flagship store - they are gaga over Ralph Lauren in Milan these days.

I feel compelled to add buffalo mozzarella to this. They say it is like cheese from an angel's tit.

One thing to possibly avoid in the food department. Seeing as how it is winter you are likely to encounter big slabs of lard as a side dish.......it's vile.....
