    Thanks for this.

    Fine, and wise, idea to create an interview format.
    GL Isaia is very well spoken, intelligent, and represents the core values of napolitano tailoring like no other in my opinion.

    Always enjoy reading his interviews and thoughts.

    Everything he represents and what he appreciates regarding tailoring and style I find an absolute affinity for. He's a real mentor, and I dare say, hold him closer than Luciano Barbera, who also is an idol..

    I particularly like his comments on a limited wardrobe..and it is what I have always done myself, in part because I hate excess.
    I have lived here for yrs already, and spaces are not what they are in the States with the large homes, walk in closets, etc..not to mention excess.

    Having too much stifles creativity Ive learned. Just as too much convenience stifles creativity.

    As a fine art painter I understand why I am here. Not merely the history, but ppl are not wired into their computers, live on the internet, stuck in front of tv, etc...

    ....but im digressing.

    Thx again
    Kind regards

    Glad you enjoyed. Stay tuned, there's also an upcoming longer interview with LB himself, who I think offers an interesting contrast to GI's point of view.

    I've now read this interview 3 or 4 times and it is just sublime. Every time he talks, he sounds more like the talisman for our sartorial beliefs.
