    You might enjoy this article on the BBC website. Some interesting photos too: Pope's tailor

    I'm sure they make great stuff for the Pope but the suit that Lorenzo Gammarelli is wearing has a mediocre fit - he should take a trip up to Caraceni and get himself appropriately fitted. Panzer

    You want to find the best barber in town, don't look for the guy with the best haircut.

    Useless sartorial trivia:

    While Gammarelli handles the Papists in Rome, Adeney & Boutroy handled the ecclesiastical C of E business in the UK. However, as of 1988 it was down to one fellow, Ron Pescod (according to Richard Walker's book). John N Kent apparently spent some of his early career there.
