I specified two cloth numbers for my most recent, prepaid order that was to be ready in six weeks. After three months he began telling me every couple of weeks that the trousers would ship in three days. Another three months later when I met him in Milan he said he would have trousers for me in Naples four days later. In Naples he apologized that the cloth was not in stock (six months later and he hadn't ordered cloth!) and he would deliver in a week. Nope. He could have made the pants in the time it took him to keep stalling me. After another couple of months he finally delivered. The. Wrong. Trousers. I paid for a 17 ounce flannel and got some lighter stuff. Paid for cream linen and got tan. I won't send them back though as I am no longer confident I would ever see them again. The crazy thing is that I write about this stuff and know of dozens of pairs of pants that my readers have ordered on my recommendation and he does this anyway! Oh well. He is a nice guy and will hopefully prove that all this was a one time glitch.
