If you minus 20% it must be 4160, but I've heard widely varying accounts of how much CdL are.
Standard rate of VAT in France is 19.6%, and should be deducted for anything sent abroad or bought there for export out of the E.U. As a consumer you can normally show your air ticket to an ex-EU destination to avail of this.
Haha I can see where the sentiment usually possessed by bankers would give that impression, and I have misgivings even about bankers ability to detect a brand such as Cifonelli. It seems going after a Cifonelli piece for the cache would be akin to acquiring the more expensive philippe dufour when a 'simple' patek would do. I'm sure brioni or rubinacci has more cache.
I like the 'look' of cifonelli pieces I've seen, kind of like I like the 'look' of tom ford - but couldn't entertain the thought of wearing one in a work rotation. It's kind of interesting that I while have tried a certain well regarded\but SF-obscure bespoke operation, I get the most approbation for my MTM RLBL (even over RLPL). I'm generally bad at detecting stylistic underpinnings but RLBL has zero drape, no?
Beautiful photos Agjiffy -- thanks for taking the time to share. The Milanese buttonhole is a work of art.
