    That's sounds so funny to me :)

    It's really apples and oranges. Have you an idea where Ariston is?? That is like flying to the moon for the average bespoke tailor in Naples. They will not ship you 3 suit lengths a year when they have clients like Isaia, Partenopea who simply buy loads and a few others who somehow organize themselves (more or less).
    Cacciopoli is the ultimate convience for any regular tailor in Naples.You can walk there and get a length, even without having the bunches. And if you are a good friend, they'll open the warehouse outside of working hours. You don't even have to consider the fabrics or the variety they offer, that would already go to far, haha.
    Cacciopoli 'expanded' quite a bit on SR, saw the bunches recently at Hardy Amies and at others.

    Sure, Ariston isn't in the city...but it's at least closer than say, Holland and Sherry, which you see almost everywhere. And it does market itself as Ariston Napoli. When asked, I was told, as you say, that it's more used by commercial RTW firms. Mina carries it, and I have heard also Orazio Luciano. But none of the other sartoria I've been to had it. I'm not saying anything about the quality of Ariston - I have a jacket of their fabric that I like. Just reporting that it isn't common to see it in Neapolitan sartorie.

    Caccioppoli you can now find on the row, as well as in Asia, and as options in many of the MTM operations of the larger brands.

    Actually H&S is closer than Ariston as H&S have an agent for Napoli who visits the tailors (even if he is a notorious gossip) :D.

    That green donegal is awesome. I wonder if I would have any occasion to actually wear it. Perhaps the jacket.

    Sure, but H&S is an English company. Anyway, I found it surprising that Ariston isn't more common, but perhaps others won't.

    Anyone have a sense of how much Caccioppoli charges for their summer jacketings?

    The Irish linens are some of the only fabrics that Caccippoli doesn't get from Italy - those are from the UK.

    The summer jacketings on the Tumblr links above are €80/m, or at least they were, when I inquired back in April.

    Can't remember exactly on either, but just send them an email and they should get back to you pretty quickly:

    Those who are interested in the Green Donegal, the weight is 13.4oz and you can obtain it through Jodek International, pricing is approximately $180 a yard. If I need to remove the pricing, please let me know.

    I think they are the same as the LL linens. I just saw the bunch at NSM and the RAF blue is exactly the same as the one I got through LL.

    Sorry for digging this threat again, but I have always love the Caccioppoli bunch and will visit Napoli soon, so,

    Wonder if they welcome end-user and sell jacket / suit length to walk-in ?
