Thank you!

I have seen them last time I was in Naples, they are more rustic than the English counterparts. I regretted I didn't buy one when i was there.

That is a great article- thank you.  I was at a hotel up near Castel Volturno and I saw this display case in the lobby that had these shoes and information for ordering.  I have to tell you I went a little weak in the knee when I saw them- one was this green and brown golf shoe that was just beautiful.

I need to figure out a way to get into their factory seconds inventory room so I can get about 12 pair.  Thanks for posting this!

Have you seen the "Spoils of Napoli" thread? If not, search for it.

I have- thanks for mentioning it.  There is a ton of info in there.  What I don't know about is what items are you not able to acquire without coming here.  I know you can get Kiton, Finamore, Brioni in the states - so I'm digging into the next level.  Cappelli ties, Anna Matuozzo shirts (well just one of these- too pricey!). 

Can you get E. Marinella ties easily in the US?

IMO the brands available are not as important as the selection and the taste of the individual purveyors which cater to the neapolitan style. You probably need knowledge and taste to begin with to get the most out of these vendors. But perhaps they can guide you to develop their type of sensitivity and taste.
