    ^^^ Looks nice, my preference is for a lower notch. LH and Panico are two tailors who position the lapel notch reasonably lower.

    Got to see it IRL too - the colors are much nicer in daylight.

    +1. This is and the width of the lapel are my only concerns with Mina.

    You want narrower lapels? I think that the overall effect is very nice,it could also be just the angle of the pictures. But both medtech's and ed's coats look outstanding.

    Both things can be adjusted to your taste.

    I am on the pudgy side of 5'10" and I like the height and width of the lapels as I think it works well with my frame but if I got lower notches, it wouldn't be the end of the world either.

    Lookin' good, Eddie. (You too, Ed). It was a great treat to visit Mina and "shop" in Naples.

    Btw, I think the pizza in the photo is actually, like many SF members, half-fried and half-baked.

    Pizza fritta is a perfectly legit Neapolitan thing. It's just not the same thing as pizza simpliciter.

    Okay, but it's still far from authentic--in this case, I think pictures are enough to tell the story on that. However, that doesn't mean it doesn't taste good!

    Mina and Dino went to our little Neapolitan restaurant last night. Verdict?

    Pizza: very good, but not the same.

    Fritturina: as good as home.

    I have no idea why they went there, however, given the location of their hotel. I hope that it wasn't because of this thread.

    Charming couple, a real delight. I'll see them again in a month or so.

    Btw, I think the pizza in the photo is actually, like many SF members, half-fried and half-baked.

    I have to disagree. Most members are wrapped in foil and microwaved until electric flames burst, or simply, just pickled.
