    Or a guy could get the lower roll and wear a cardigan with a deep vee instead of a vest, which is pretty common in Naples.

    That was an unfortunate look I witnessed more than once over the weekend. I also saw a few pairs of acid wash jeans... they go to Naples to die??

    No, I quite like this look. But Will was pointing out the deep V t-shirt underneath, which is, well.... pretty nasty.

    Really awesome... most attractive Italian garments that I have seen on this board.

    I think Will meant that instead of a vest made of the suit fabric, you could wear a sweater vest with a deep V and that this would be a good thing.

    You're right... brain fart on my part. I thought it was a sarcastic (and witty) reference to my little rant from the other day. [​IMG]

    Couple of basted fittings today. 1) 2BSB peak lapel suit in Dormeuil Tonik 2000 (10.5 oz - 70% worsted, 30% mohair) [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm pleased with Mina's first execution of a SB peak lapel; it has character yet isn't overly dramatic. I'm also enthusiastic about this fabric she recommended to me. Others have cautioned about the "scratchiness" of mohair, but at least in this formulation I'm not bothered by it at all. I love the crease-resistance and breathability, and it has quite a lot of body given its relative light weight. The color as well is a "true" dark blue, rich yet without the shininess typically associated with mohair. 2) 3BSB sportcoat in Dormeuil Scottie Derby [​IMG] We are going for slightly moderated lapel widths this time around, while maintaining the relatively lower gorge as achieved with my PoW 3-piece. The shoulders need to be taken in and the back cleaned up, but these areas should be fairly solid by the forward. Antonio also shortened both jackets by a scootch - any feedback on this? Also took delivery of a pair of brushed cotton pants in mid brown. Forgot to snap those but perhaps tomorrow...

    Ed - are the buttoning points the same as those on your previous ones?

    The navy suit looks especially good. Is that one of her shirts you are wearing?

    Mina closed the coats with pins, so I didn't have the opportunity to "feel" the buttoning point. I'd be surprised if it changed, though, since I was happy where it's been.

    I was supposed to take delivery of my first batch of shirts, but Lufthansa left one of Mina's suitcases in the Naples airport [​IMG]

    ME, your stuff looks really beautiful, but more importantly than the droves here on SF, you seem genuinely happy with them and the new relationship with your tailor. Congrats!
