I'm sure you're right-- but time always seems to be against me. I'm working overseas, and only in the USA for a limited time, so will use the coat in November in the city. However, even when I've been living permanently in the USA, haven't liked the look of the bespoke tailors like Ercole and others, just not for me. I DO want to give Napoli Su Misura a try in 2013 tho, like the shape / cut / shoulders they make while avoiding the hourglass look of jackets, etc. till then, i depend on the good cloth and construction of better ready to wear, while I'm making much more $$ than when I'm back home living in the real world/ reality
Got an appointment to go see what Seize Sur Vignt has to offer....

Go to Beckenstein's - choose from dozens of cashmere overcoatings - buy a length and take it to Ercole. He'll do it in a month, provided you let him know your timing / schedule beforehand.
Much better product for $2,500 less.
