    To be truthful, I find all of them, to be a little too close to the body. I prefer an airy, three dimensional fit. Just my honest, opinion, of course.

    I had them made in Naples. Gennaro I think his name was, took my measurement and Mariano was around both when I ordered and have them fitted.

    Yes, Gennaro is the head tailor. He is terrific. They both look great.

    Another one. Both un-pinned by the way.

    It definitly has a conservative and low gorge, classic style; yet the lapels give it some 'posh' Something that you could wear for quite sometime.

    Iyorito-

    I really like the Pirozzi and Panico coats. Is the top Attolini a MTM or Bespoke. It does not look nearly as "individual" as the other three makers. It is a bit more perfect.

    How would you compare all of them?

    The top Attolini is a bespoke. It is still made in the same "factory" as the RTW though. I really do not have a favorite. In terms of the fit, Panico makes the jacket too loose around the waist for my likings.

    Thank you for the pictures.

    The arms on the Attolini are gorgeous!

    I really like your jacket. Did you have some more information (a website etc.) about Nunzio Pirozzi?

    iyorito, this is very instructional. Makes such a difference seeing them in photos than just straight written explanations of cut, fabric, etc. I'd like to see them on as well...

    It seems you get to Naples often.

    I agree, we so rarely get to see bespoke pictorial representation of these tailors which are discussed ad nauseam. I would love to see them on you, you can 'crop' your head if you don't want the celebrity status[​IMG].

    You are an extremely lucky man to have made such fine investments.
    Also, how would you describe your build(?), as these are custom and thereby dictate the silhouette to great extent.

    Bellissimo!
