post #1006 of 1009
I've done business with several tailors/vendors in Naples and Patrizio is head and shoulders above the rest. He's responsive, straightforward, and provides exceptional customer service. Not just exceptional for Naples, but exceptional in absolute terms. Most importantly the quality of his product is top notch, I've never had a problem with any tie he's ever made for me and I probably have a few dozen. He's a gentleman and he's got great taste.

this is correct, they are knitted by machine. so a specific width can be made, but a bulk run quantity needs to be produced

I think that with Patrizio, you will get exceptionally honest, fair and friendly treatment. He has always been generous with help and time (I often get very quick responses from him when it is evening for him), and in some cases (as above), incredibly generous--though, and @Stugotes is not suggesting that one should, one shouldn't expect free ties for honest mistakes.

 

He makes me feel like an old friend. My impression is that he takes incredible pride in his work but is also modest. I asked him why he didn't have an IG, like many of his competitors and he said that he isn't that sort of person but relies on those, like us, who have "affection" for his work to make it known.
