Is this brand Italian or US?
The company is American, but a lot of the goods are made in Italy.

why not?
Because Paris is a big market and one of the capital of fashion and clothes with Milano, NY and London (may be Tokyo?) Beeing completely unknown in Paris sound no very serious unless you are a small tailor like Kabbaz.

i suspect Chuck would be more than happy with a business and reputation similar to that of Alex...with or without Paris on his side

The best menswear still comes from either the UK or Italy. Positive associations etc. Maybe the owner is from Italian descent as well? You might overstate the importance of Paris just a little bit BTW. Attolini doesn't have fashion shows in Paris but still they're pretty much the best you can do...

I don't like the shirts = too casual Ties seem to be good value for price.

I actually do like the shirts, especially the blue herringbone.

Roy, I agree with the first half of your statement, but not with the second..... Attolini is the best?

For RTW/MTM i'd say there is not much that might be better. From there on it's probably going bespoke that will really take you to the next level. I have no experience with English or Italian bespoke tailors, I just comment on what I see in shops like Oger and Pauw mannen (as you might know since you also live in Holland).

Well, at this level it becomes a matter of taste, some will argue that Kiton and Brioni make a nicer suit. For shirts, Attolini is a tier below Matuozzo, Miccoci, Merolo, etc.

I also think Kiton and Brioni make beautiful suits. I am going on trip to Rome in April and will definitely stop by the via Barberini to check it out. But Matuozzo, Micocci and Merolo are bespoke shirtmakers, right? And do they only work locally or do they travel?

Thanks for the report linux_man. His shirts looked quite nice (particularily the blue herringbone). I had went to buy one a couple of weeks ago, but alas they aren't made in my size
