    Six Solito fittings, seven Ambrosi fittings, one NSM suit fitted and brought home.

    I expect I will have more to say about the trip and the city, sartorially and generally. Also, look for an "I hate airlines" thread.

    That Rubinacci cashmere is outstanding (as is the vintage PS from Cappelli). Eager to hear your impression of the city / tailors.

    What is the price of Marinella ties in Napoli? Are they less expensive than they are in US? When you said that Maurizio Marinella helped you pick the ties out does that mean that he helped you pick fabric and then they were made for you or are these just from the RTW collection? Thanks.

    Indeed. Been looking for the one in black, but it's never available. On a related note, didn't they have an online store at some point? It seems offline now, with a "Coming soon" sign. And Manton -- awesome purchases.

    I don't know if they replenished their stock, but one year ago October I was told I purchased the last Black Victory pocket square. In fact I had to request it via email because they were no longer listing it on their web store. If they haven't restocked in Italy, maybe the England store has one?
