    My friend and trouser maker Salvatore Ambrosi will be in New York City between February 18th and 24th to meet with new and old clients. In addition, Gennaro Solito, the esteemed Neapolitan tailor, will be present to take orders for jackets and suits. Salvatore is still working out the hotel details, so I will keep you posted about the exact location. But, until then, here's a price list: Pants: $700 Jacket: $2,100 Suit: $2,800 These prices relate to 'standard' cloths. You can e-mail Salvatore at [email protected] to make an appointment.

    No, he doesn't. Solito does coats. Ambrosi is the trouser maker.

    Interesting.

    Do you know, Matt, if they both plan on returning to fit clients after taking orders on this trip, or is this strictly a measure and then ship to you type of thing?

    I ask because they seem to visit at irregular and widely spaced intervals.

    That's what I figured. It's a little confusing from the way the post is written. Thanks for clarifying.

    What type/style of coats does Solito make? Have you ever seen/bought one?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Given the exchange rate, now might be a good time to place a Savile Row order.

    Thank you for replying, Salvatore.

    Would the same be true for Mr. Solito? In other words, if he does receive orders on his February trip with you, his clients could expect him to return to New York to fit them?

    Again, thank you.

    I'm wearing a Solito suit here.

    Keep in mind, as I note in that post, that the suit was not made for me.

    Here he is in his shop looking quite elegant:
