It is buried somewhere below the sea near Alexandria, present day Egypt. Script on suit science was originally part of famous library collection, along with Euclid's geometry, Ptolomey's representation of universe and original Greek language version of Bible whose transcript we still use today.

Legend goes that ancient Neapolitan (Pompeii) tailors decided to hide it.

Thanks everyone. I'll leave it to the tailor to help me choose the right lapel width and will generally trust the tailer in helping me decide on fit and other characteristics.
