They increased about 5% in Naples, and then rebalanced London prices to the Euro, so they went up a lot, because the GBP is sucks.

In London, that is crazy....From 3000 to 4000 pounds in a few months....
They did more than rebalance...
The girl from the shop was shocked when she told me...

It used to be 4200EUR, which, when they set that price in '06, was 2800 GBP. When they increased in late '08, they went to 4400EUR, which was 4000GBP, so the British price really is just a rebalancing of the currency. Still, it is expensive.

I said ouch when Laura told me the prices...4000 pounds ....As expensive as Huntsman...
That is de facto a 25% increase...
I'm sure a lot of customers have left, especially the ones paying full price...

From a US dollar perspective, that makes the Naples and London prices about the same. Anyway, why would you expect Rubinacci to cost less than Huntsman?

Choose another neopolitan tailor and invest in maybe six plane tickets (probably 150£ each flight) + 1 hotel night and meals, I think you'll save anyway and enjoy Napoli and it's surroundings.

David Ward , the cutter is a former Henry Poole man...
Mafoofan , i don't give two hoops about Hunntsman prices because i'm not a Huntsman customer because i'm cheesed off when the prices are jumping from 2800 to 4000 pounds in 12 months
