Does anyone know who made the suit, or how to describe the style, of the navy suit in the first picture in post #5? I have been looking for a suit like this for a long time?

It's un abito napoletano. Soft shoulders, high armholes, big lapels. Kiton make them like that, as do any number of Neapolitan tailors.

Antonio, Salvatorre's dad, does not wear a typical Neopolitan jacket...like Kiton

Salvatorre's dad uses a little known tailor hidden in the dark side of Naples...not Solito and not Rubinacci. Its an old man who likely makes 4 jackets a month.

It is a distinct jacket made the way Naples jacket used to be made before the Export Napoli jacket with some of the distinct features that the famous Napoli RTW and some of the bespoke Napoli tailors prepare for their International (not local) clientele.

There is no RTW maker who makes such stuff...as it is an old tailor's distinct interpretation of how Napoli style jacket use to look.

I think it's the other way around. Salvatore's dad uses the typical Neapolitan tailor while Kiton is an atypical sartoria Napolitana.
