Well, I will chime in on this one, since I own a Spano Norfolk jacket. Picked out the fabric (a wonderfully heavy and coarse black/white donegal), and had his people make me a Norfolk jacket out of it. The craftsmanship is top notch, in my opinion. I buy only MTM and custom, so I think I have some expertise, but ofcourse not nearly as much as some on this board. The coat was finished off with a special touch I had asked for - a few inches of black moleskin lining the sleeve, down by the working buttons. That way if I wanted to unbutton them and roll the sleeve back a bit, I would have really nice soft moleskin there as a little bit of extra style. I love the coat, it is absolutely indestructable. Its really become a great traveling/drinking/out in the country coat, and I get compliments on it all the time. Mimmo is a very interesting person, he actually used to a policeman of sorts, back in Italy. He loves the 1930's, and will gladly show you lots of clippings from Esquire that he bases his designs on. He is a salesman, first and foremost. He is hilarious, and has a great personality. I doubt he knows much about tailoring, but so what. His workers, however, are the most sour, demeaning people I have ever encountered though. I wish he had nicer employees, it would make the whole experience more pleasurable. His clothes are not for everyone though. He is very adamant about how his clothes should fit, and he will not stray from it. Its very 1930s, broad shoulders, drappy, flowing pants. Its elegant, no doubt, but you really have to have the right kind of body to pull it off. a 46 short is going to look ridiculous, in my opinion. a 40 long, athletic guy is going to look much better. This also has to be taken into account when you buy from a certain company.
