Did they have a bucket full of red coral pins?

They should open a store just selling pins due to the high request!

Perhaps it is more personal for me since I was present at the time and each process I assisted in the workshop was admirable and educational. This was one of the final steps, nothing perfectly in order, yarns and labels spread out on their working tables, pieces of small trimmed cloth was everywhere. In such a disorder, a perfect garment is created.

Sounds like you took the blue pill.

Are we so cynical we are now going to start trashing Isaia? Say what you want about their marketing (which, btw, has led to an explosion in popularity and growth for the brand), Isaia is one of the finest mens clothing companies in the world.

Sorry to hear you missunderstood my message. In matter of fact they are a great company and create beautiful products all the times. 

And yes, all famous neapolitan sartorial companies are 'messy' in their workshops, if they were nice and neat, no perfect garment could be created, it's just a fact.

That's ridiculous.

I don't see nothing ridiculous here, everyone has their own preferences.

You see, guys, Neapolitan tailors must be messy to counteract the jaw-dropping cleanliness of their fairer-than-most city. Clearly this board is full of people that have never visited Napoli and don't realize that tailors MUST be disorganized and messy to contradict the perfect order of the city. Napoli's existence is predicated on tailoring. Literally not a single other trade or skill is employed within the city limits. So, to have a clean, orderly workplace that produces FLAWLESS garments would solidify Napoli as a Utopia. And this perfect marriage of order, civility and tailoring would shift the time-space continuum, causing the world as we know it to collapse in on itself.

So yes you see, the necessity of slovenly operation space isn't just the determinant of a great end product, but the actual fabric (please, pardon the pun) of our very existence.

People who have traveled much like you, acquire experiences and knowledge.

Perhaps this should teach some others who have less experience.

 

And by the way, I'm from Italy, who better than me would know?
