    My fitting and the reception of the suit of Davide Tofani. Cloth is a vitale barberis flannel. Davide is really a great guy we have some great time with his friends around a delicious meal, and the work is pretty good, suit is very light, with nice lapel roll :

    And a Blue jacket also in vitale Barberis at Sartoria Ciardi, and a light grey flannel trousers (no pictures) from Holland and sherry. I love the Ciardi brothers.

    I wrote a long article about artisan in Napoli, but it's in french, for those who read french, otherwise there is a lot of pictures : http://depiedencap.leforum.eu/t20652-Carnet-de-voyage-BLEAP-Naples.htm?q=naples

    I'd be disappointed with the pattern matching at the shoulder seam, but it's still a nice suit.

    I wasn't implying that it was bad work...only that it would bug me. I can be a wee bit obsessive over silly things.

    Since the front and back meet the shoulder seam at differing angles, it's impossible to line up the patterns. Certainly not over the full length of the shoulder.

    Impossible is nothing! It would drive me nuts...I'm weird. Carry on with bespoke adventures.

    I'm posting this here because there's not a dedicated bespoke shirt thread that I know of, so I hope those of you better versed in the world of bespoke can help me out. I've pulled this quote from an old thread about Kabbaz (edited for brevity):

    who is AM?

    Thank you, kind sir. Does she truly rival Kabbaz?

    I wonder if there's anyone on this forum that has deep enough pockets and spends enough time in Napoli to frequent both establishments [​IMG]

    Kabbaz is based in the Hamptons, not Napoli. He makes a different product than Matuozzo. The only handwork he does is the shanked buttons. He makes a trial shirt and will keep remaking them until he is satisfied. Manton is the only one I know with shirts from Kabbaz.
