I'm a new poster, but have lurked here for many years, and have gleaned much advice on tailors and suitings: thanks to everyone who's contributed valuable advice. I've patronized many of the usual Neopolitan purveyors on several trips: Solito, Ambrosi, Cappelli, etc.
Last year, I gave this shirtmaker a try and unfortunately have to recommend against using them. It's true their prices are a bit lower than other maker in Naples, but that old adage is true....
I bought several shirts, and here is my assessment:
- Pros: they worked quickly, turning around a test shirt within a day or two and delivering the shirts before I departed a few weeks later; the fit was pretty good; they are nice people who mean well, i.e. they are not out to scam anyone.
- Cons: don't expect them to make aesthetically proper choices on any details you don't specify. For example, I did not specify that I wanted collar stays, and they did not put them in. Most decent shirtmakers will take care of that by default, because if the collar is not button down, and there are no stays... the collar can do all kinds of will-nilly things. Also, one sleeve cuff tore from the sleeve after only a handful of wearings. Finally, I thought their collars were filled with some kind of low quality material, they don't compare to other custom shirts I've bought.
I still get work-a-day usage out of the shirts I bought, but for a little more money (120-150 EUR per shirt), you can do much better. I would have preferred fewer shirts of higher quality.
