Indeed, the price difference would be a bit confusing if yes...

The trousers are interesting.
The blazer is fine, though I would certainly do it different.
And, the shirt collar would be a little flatter.
Nice shoes.

I assume that Moo was suggesting that whnay's outfit was a little flashy. whnay bitch-slapped him back with brief response heavily drenched in big-timer bravado. The exchange was amusing to me. whnay walked away the winner. Big-timer's in London House Bespoke never lose.

How do you figure that?

Luca likes a really low buttoning point. Not sure I do. I think he would look better with it raised a bit.

Foo's pants are fine, jeebus, it's cloth people.

I might take a trip to Naples later this month so I will probably buy some more.

This is my first post to this thread, but I've been following along for almost a year now.


This Friday I make my first trip to Naples to visit M. Rubinacci to place my first order.  I'll not subject myself to the often-found punishment on this thread by listing my reasons for choosing Rubinacci, but suffice it to say I am taking a careful approach.


First, I now live in Zurich so I can visit Naples as often as needed for fittings, etc.  My plan is order 2 suits, 3R2, side vents - one blue and one grey - with a request for a traditional rollina shoulder. I am 6'1" and 190 pounds.  I've been disappointed for many years by "bespoke" services in Washington DC, NYC, Hong Kong and elsewhere.  I've spent from $1500 to $4500 per suit and yet am totally dissatisfied with the outcome.  It seems no one can build a well proportioned suit for an athletic person over 6 feet tall.  Anyhow, I am in love with a soft Neopolitan shoulder and Rubinacci seems the best choice to be "safe" for my first commission in Naples.

My main thought - cost is not out of the picture for me.  I know after visiting Rubinacci, I'll walk away well over EUR 10,000 for two suits and some pants.  I know the outcome will be great, but will it be worth the cost?  


I'm really on the fence and would never cancel my appointment in 2 days with Mariano - but I'm interested in other's thoughts on here.


A "real" Napolean friend of mine in Zurich swears up and down by Solito at half the price.  Should I visit Solito and have him commission one suit and Rubinacci one?


Is it worth visiting Anna M for shirts or will Rubinacci shirts in Riva cloth be of the same quality and detail?


I promise to post pics, feedback and comments as I start my foray into Napolean tailoring. . .
