Also, my tailor is Italian and his name is stuffed with vowels. He mutters around a mouthful of pins and is openly contemptuous of Boss/Zegna/etc. He thought Baroni just fine. Caveat emptor, but there you go.
Your tailor thought Zegna was poorly made, and Baroni was good ?
I can understand Hugo contempt but that seems strange.
