    Thanks to all for the advice and PMs.

    I had a pleasant meeting with Mina and Dino: they were pretty clear that they were uncomfortable working to the December hard deadline and I appreciated their honesty. Although frustrated, I still commissioned a lovely dark grey (not quite charcoal) 3 season cloth from the VBC book for a 3r2 suit. Having looked at other options I wanted to at least test out NSM given where they sit in the price spectrum.

    The two of them were very pleasant and extremely helpful as I am a bespoke novice. I look forward to working with them in the future and seeing how this suit turns out!

    I agree. I only was trying to think of another option in his price range that could meet his time frame. But you're right, if off-the-rack works, that's a better option.

    I assume delivering it to her in person in Napoli would be just as good :)

    I have given some to her during a visit to NY, and I have had some sent to her.

    MoP buttons, hand-embroidered buttonholes, and very neatly hand-felled waistband.
