    Am I wrong in saying that you would be hard-pressed to find it in the US? Why is it that you do not see true "Neapolitan" RTW and MTM here in the states? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've heard it's because the American market doesn't appreciate how a Neapolitan jacket looks, especially with the really soft shoulders and their pleating.
