I first wanted to say that I think that this is a great forum. I've been reading these posts for the past year and virtually everything that I know about clothes comes from this forum. Thanks to people like Steve B., A Harris, LA Guy, Kai, and yes, even marc 39 and a host of others. My question has already been asked a 1,000 times on this forum already but hopefully anybody can answer this specifically for me. I'm a little over a year out of college and was interested in buying my first bespoke suit. The style I love most over others is the Neapolitan (Kiton and most especially Attolini). I wanted spend something in the area of $4000(super120s or 150). I know that Kiton makes bespoke but it sounds as if they are a little out of my price range and from what I gather of previous posts there isn't another high quality Neapolitan tailor to be found in NYC (which kind of suprises me). So my questions are: 1.Is there any high quality(i.e. Kiton) Neapolitan tailors in NYC? 2.If not, I've heard many good things about Raphael and Nino Corvato on this forum and on others. Would they cut the suit Neapolitan style or would they only stick to their house style? 3.Does Domenico Vacca make bespoke? I was reading in a departures.com article and it seems that it was being implied. If so, has anybody tried them?
