    First time I'd noticed how different from SR the boutonniere placement is on the modern Neapolitan stuff.

    Mine so far have ended up in two different places, some in the standard position, some in the one at nosebleed height at the edge. This might be a case of Tailor's Choice.

    I've asked for all new stuff to be at the normal location. We'll see how that goes.

    I'm not very fond of the small teardrop, but it would be wrong to get a carnation hole.

    It's interesting to see that MT's patches continue the rectangular theme that mine so far have, rather than the squashed moon shape.

    Do you have any new NsM in queue?

    Is it recommended/required that you bring a jacket when visiting NSM in Italy for the very first fitting?

    It depends on the time of year. Italy can get cold.

    Yes, wear your best fitting jacket. Then you can discuss with Mina what you like about the fit or would like to change.

    It was great fun to see Mina and Dino today. Pickups today were a new cord suit in a chocolaty brown JG Hardy, alterations to the first cord suit, and a pair of burgundy cord odd trou about which I had completely forgotten. There were forward fittings for two suits in Lumb's Golden Bale, each styled a tad more conservatively. Basted fittings in two glen check summer weight odd jackets in the old Barbera for Lesser.

    New stuff put in queue were things in BoL Harris and summer odd pants in various Minnis frescos. These all have the Despos Concept front pockets for flat fronts and belt loops sized to the belts I'll wear with them.

    Not sure I follow. Explain? I seem to recall him saying that he likes western pockets.
