Continuation, Naples, Day 1
We picked a rather bad week to be in Italy. From Rome to Naples, the weather was terrible, characterised by light drizzle through out the day punctuated with the occasional down pour. Suffice to say, walking around the small streets of Naples was not an enjoyable experience under these circumstances. It also explains the lack of any street photography during our visit.
Anyway, our next stop was at the atelier of a respected Neapolitan tailor, who unlike his counter parts shuns publicity. This particular tailor will remain nameless. However, some readers may be able to deduce who he is either by being an existing customer (I know who you are
), knowledge of his particular cut, or through the background of the photos posted below. By all means, speculate all you want but enquiries to the identity will go unanswered. Why keep his identity a secret? It's simple really. I respect his business and his customer base. They do extremely well and are already having some capacity issues. And this is by no means a shill for his business, hence there is no need to highlight who he is. We may debate this issue but I would retort by saying that only a fool will argue with the fiercely decided.
With that out of the way, we found that our tailor has been hard at work.
