On the front as your observation, it is not, just the way is folded, it has not got any carton support etc.

Yes. it is. Could it be a more subtle instance of sprezzatura?

Maybe it is, but personally I would be less than pleased that the fabric on the collar isn't aligned symmetrically, for instance...

this is not a jacket or has pockets to match, the panels are well aligned but the overlapping "squares" are slightly enlarged. It looks ok to me that way considering the absence of front placket. The pattern was indeed challenging by itself, also considering the short time available I asked to complete the shirt in, and for the fact this was a 90cm wide fabric, which she commented looked cut to 90cm (selvedge is only on one side, oddly) and made it challenging to cut the pieces from.

As I said I am still "studying" the shirt, and EliodA thanks for spotting the collar asymmetry, as had not yet noticed myself. Will ask her to re-cut and swap the collars when I am next in Naples.

Yasu, she is home based, so normally people will bring in the fabrics, although she mentioned to hold some cuts there (I guess basic pattern/colours). Do not believe she speak English (T4 may know more) but her son was there and he is studying languages and wishes to move to London, so I guess he can help the process, and as I understand will answer email enquiries in English.

Do you have her email address?  I'm with you on the pattern matching, fit is the most important consideration in bespoke.

Marco-

Is this the same Vittoria as the lady near Piazza Trieste e Trento?  Bounanno uses her and she is recommended by a few folks I have talked to in Napoli. 

I'm taking a piece of Riva to her next month sometime. 

 

Camiceria Vittoria Di Francesca Smorra

Via Carlo de Cesare, 18

 

Thanks

No, Vittoria Fluido works from home. I have heard mix reviews about Camiceria Vittoria.
post #27 of 41

OK, thanks.  Could you send me contact info for this Vittoria? 

What is your final analysis of Fluido's work?

She cut a nice fitting shirt. My first shirt was delivered in less then a week (special request) and in hindsight was too a short time, so i would give it enough time. I have not yet been able to return to have the collar re-cut but she has actually contacted me few times asking when I can visit her or send the shirt to get it fixed. Will send you a PM.

OK- thanks Marco. 

 

I went over to Via Duomo yesterday and stopped in at Cacciopoli.  Sadly I got there late and they were closing up, so I will have to make the trip back down.  It's a sucky walk from Chiaia.

Hi, Thanks for the blog.

I'm quite interested in having something made with her, at 100EUR its sounds really reasonable.

I'm based in London and have no interest in making the trip to Naples though. Do you think it would be possible to send over an old shirt (bespoke) for her to copy ? With some shirting of course.

Secondly, does anyone know where to buy some good shirting in London ?

Thanks,
