Sounds good.
I will definitely order at least one to start with.
You may want to email ahead of time to see if they allow for a one-shirt order on the first round. Most bespoke makers require three or four in order to justify drafting your pattern.

It's a full bespoke with a muslin fitting. Great collar
what I can tell from vox's insta and your pics from here, the collars look great 👍

have you tried a button down from NSM?

Their shirts for me are probably not typical of what they do— more of a Jermyn Street fit. I like them very much. Just be sure to bring your favorite shirt to the appointment so you can discuss things you like and things that should be better.

Does anyone have experience with returning existing pieces to Mina for pressing and/or adjustments?

She's pretty dedicated to client satisfaction. i've never had any issues asking her to adjust trousers or a jacket, but i've also never really asked for just pressing, that might be best done locally.

Would anybody be willing to DM me a recent price list? I’ve emailed info at napolisumisura but have not received a response to date.

Does their website still work? I tried to google it and nothing came up. Also tried to link it from their instagram and got error messages.

I ordered one shirt from them. This was a few years ago though.

Anybody found a decent replacement for their soft, translucent, collar stays? Mine are mostly stuck in a place I can't travel to right now, and (while I am also not wearing real shirts much these days) it would be nice to find a source that didn't involve emails to Napoli.

what's so special about their collar stay, soft, translucent, so some kind of soft plastic?
