They don't chang eprices constantly to reflect the two currencies. In early '06, when the London store opened, they made the prices equal. They have not changed them since.

Interesting.

Whnay, what great idea for a thread. I noticed that your suit has considerably less drape than Iammatt's. Could any of the MR clients comment on this? Also, it looks like you have a conventional sleevehead attachment instead of the shirt-sleeve type?

That makes sense as Euro has surged against the Sterling in the past year or so.

I was going to mention the same thing. Was the suit made in London or Naples?

Interesting.

Is there a third set of dollar prices if you meet them in NYC?

And what determines the geographic price structure of the final bill...the location where you are first measured? The location to which it is delivered (I'm disregarding things like VAT and duty)?

I'm asking these somewhat rhetorically, since there would be no reason for you to know exactly what the answers are.

Bill and Matt. F., since the two of you were measured in Naples, but then fitted in London and/or NYC, did you pay the Neopolitan price?

And Cantabrigian, since you were measured and fitted in NYC only, to what pricing structure was your commission pegged?

Mariano suggested the sleeve and shoulder construction be more typical of a formal suit on my DB, I'm sure I could have requested otherwise but felt right about his suggestion. My jackets, as you'll see later, have a shoulder construction similar to most of Matt's stuff.

All my garments were made in Naples. Initial down payment and settlement was handled in GBP. Since my next order will originate in NYC or Naples I'll be interested to see how that changes, if any.

I like the fact you bought a DB and didn't stick to all this SB nonsense.

Very nice...

I, for one, would be very interested in an A&S ex-pat thread.

Yes, color is Lilac. Tie is Rubinacci. Square is Arnys. Shoes are C&J. But enough about those firms.

More pictures of the DB. Next time I see Mariano I'm going to ask him to adjust the button placement but just a 1/4" of an inch.
