I am creating this thread because I can't see any other official thread for Luca; mods, feel free to do as you will if there is a thread going, and apologies for overlooking it.

Luca will be in NYC from September 6-10 (with Luigi Solito). Much to my chagrin, I am unable to make it due to work commitments, but I *did* make up for my dismay by purchasing this shirt this morning (pics attached).

Is anyone planning on going to have anything commissioned?

Perhaps I will post some pics of my beloved "Friday" polo later this week.

Planning a 10 shirt order with him, 4 poplin, 4 linen, and 2 long sleeve Friday polos. This will be my first commission with him, I am not the hardest fit, but have the common fit issues, such as shoulder slope and an athletic physique; large shoulders, slim waste. I wish there were most photos of bespoke commissions from him.

My shirt arrives today, and Luca suggested we do a video chat to do a made-to-measure. That said, I'm definitely going to try to spend a month in Italy next year and have at least four shirts done. Ways away, but I will certainly post some pics.

I met with Luca on Thursday. He took my measurements and I took photos of some fabrics. Next fitting is November. Solito was also there, many beautiful jackets, seeing them in person really shows how beautiful both Luca's and Solitos's garments truly are.

Lucca has a great selection of Alumo and Thomas Mason bespoke. Poplin, twill, and oxford, he did not have the linen books with him unfortunately.

Not sure that he is traveling to the US, most likely only NYC, he was in NYC in September, coming back in November. Should double check with him, I am not entirely sure.

Thanks so much for sharing! This is awesome. I just referred a friend to Luca while he was visiting Napoli. He said he was super impressed with everything. Hoping to hear the full details upon his return, as he is still abroad.

I thought Luca said he was coming back to NY in December, when I met with him a few weeks ago.

riccardo, I spoke with luca about a MTO friday polo with the one button, one piece collar...will you or he send me a bill once it's ready? and I believe Luca indicated it is roughly a 5 week turnaround?
