    Okay, Mina has replied but only tangentially to my email. Apparently she is very busy. Does anyone know if, as her website suggests, she travels to clients homes or to locations outside NYC, at additional cost?

    If their typical day is anything like the day I visited them, they are seeing clients from early in the morning, to well into the evening, then getting on a plane and going to the next city. I'm sure you'll get better attention when they are back in Naples and have a chance to catch their breath.

    Given that NYC is her second largest client base (after Rome), and that people come in to see her from Philly and DC, I suspect that Mina would have little time to venture out of Midtown...

    I had a nice visit with Mina today. I picked up a jacket and had a fitting for a navy suit.

    Here is a photo of some of the fabric books she brought along on this trip. The close-up is a large scale cashmere/wool blend made by Loro Piana especially for Mina. It is a deep brown with a touch a of grey heather on a heather ivory ground. I ordered a jacket made of it for fall.

    I have established full contact with Mina, and she has written that she in fact no longer travels to clients outside her city stops. Can anyone explain why her largest client base is in Rome? I find that very interesting.

    Because Rome is close to home.
