I could not agree more. With his knowledge and honest opinion I feel very confident I would get a great fitted suit with Sartodi in my corner.

Suit is secondary. I have a feeling Sartodi is fun to hang out with.

I've stayed at Casa Rubinacci and it is a really nice apartment (there are actually three I think, all in the same building). I've been to Naples several times, and it is was convenient to have a place to stay, but as others have pointed out, it's not going to offset the cost of a suit. I think we stayed there three nights maybe, I can't remember, but it was a nice benefit and relatively painless. I like Naples, but I can't imagine spending seven days there.

On the rent apartments I said he offered? Are nice?

 

How long is the maximun time allowed? 

 

There is sentence about Naples that says:

 

In Naples you cry twice, the first day you go, and the day you leave.

 

I can say it happened to me, so it´s true.

Interesting article, but I didn't like the finished product they showed at the end of the article as much as I thought I would. Maybe I just don't care for their house-style, as it were.

Did you get a suit made while you stayed there even though it was only a few nights?

I had a couple that were already in progress and wanted to do a fitting in Naples, rather than with Luca in NY. So I needed to be in Naples and needed a place to stay, so asked if i could stay given I had a couple of things in progress and did that. They didn't finish them while I was there and I didn't expect them to. I guess I could have hung around a week or so to pick them up, but I didn't want to spend a week in Naples.

A writer does not need to have extensive experience or expertise in any specific subject to write an enjoyable article of this type, nor does a reader need any of the same to enjoy the article.  Sometimes, it's all just for fun.  

"Hate" is a strong word, but I approach these articles with strong negative bias because in most cases they are paid content, and Rubinacci is one company which has consistently given me the impression that they really understand and play the PR game, down to the overexposed photos currently popular on Instagram. Like many readers, I decry the selling out of journalism to advertising whilst not moving a finger to stem it (for example by paying for a subscription to high quality content). 

 

That being said, when the content is entertaining and provides value, it is worth reading. I'd rather read fluff pieces by/about Rubinacci than Hugo Boss (who somehow never mentions their rich heritage rooted in modern German history) or yet another watch ad for some unknown company throwing away their investor money into attempting to grab a few points of market share from Rolex with hastily put together horrors at 100x manufacturing cost. Still, caveat emptor.

I like this thread much more than the article, which I didn't read.
