    Can anyone recommend a tailor in Naples or Florence to do custom work? I'm looking to get a sportcoat made, but for a reasonable (bespoke) price. I'm most likely gonna buy the fabric at a different store and just bring it to the tailor. I know of the big Neopolitan houses such as Kiton and Castangia, but I'm really just looking for a local tailor that will get the job done. Anyone have experience in doing this??

    What is your budget? It all depends on your budget.

    I'm looking at most $200; probably less for just a sportcoat. This may seem ubsurd, but I know it's possible, especially in Naples. A roomate of mine had 2 suits made there for about $3-400. I was also speaking with a local Neopolitain that was saying it's possible to get just a jacket made for around $100. Of course this is with inferior materials, that is why i'm opting to buy some nice Zegna or Loro Piana fabric beforehand. I'm also not looking to be at the height of sartorial elegance with this jacket; instead, something to just kick it around in. As far as color/pattern i'm thinking of a dark mustard, with green and maroon windowpanes; something that will compliment jeans nicely.
