    Mystery Bespoke Tailor is actually the name of the house. After A&S and Rubinacci, it's probably the most popular on StyleForum.

    As originator of the phrase, I should have pressed for exclusive rights.

    Now, cheap copies abound.

    Apologies for the delay. Was on a business trip. These things need to be funded, you know.



    Food was lovely. Will make a special post within this thread on that but here's a preview.

    Correct. We went to Naples on Tuesday and returned on Friday with Marianno suggesting that we have one fitting in the morning and then another late in the afternoon.




    My apologies for using the term Mystery Bespoke Tailor as it has been tainted by the notion that a poster does this for attention seeking purposes. While this may be the intent of some individuals, it is not the case here. For example, a few artisans specifically request that they not be mentioned on the forums.

    Regardless, this is an interesting point for future discussions.

    If you must know, this is where Mao really gets his shirts from. He casts a strong helo effect.

    We stayed at a three star hotel near Termini, Hotel Milani on Via Magenta. Nothing special but good enough for our needs.


    I was using a Panasonic GF1. Mao was using a FUJIFILM FinePix X100.

    Yes, moar to come. Next, Naples...

    Wow, Rubinacci is fast to be able to give you two fittings in a single day. I guess that is one reason for the $$$$.

    Great pics; looking forward to more. It's always fun to see these kinds of clothes photoblogs.

    My neapolitan tailor does the same for a fraction of that money. But therefor no English, no emails, no nice shop in Chiaia.... etc

    Great report - keep on posting! :fonz:
