Dear members!

I have really curious question.

In Korea, one classic suit shop promoted "Napoli bespoke service".
As far as I know, they sold "Bespoke Serive" and they earned big money.
And they said that "Sartoria Visconi, Sartoria Gardi, Sartoria Formosa" are legend of Napoli.
Also said that they are best Nopolitan tailor.
However, I haven't heard of them. And I cannot find their information on web.

Is it true that they are legend of Napoli? If yes, why I can't find their product on "Tie your Tie" and other luxury shop?

I think all of them are only famous in Korea.
Am I right? In Italy of Europe, are they legend of Napoli talior?

Also classic suit shop promoted "Salvatore Ambrosi".
They said that Ambrosi is "future of Napoli". Ambrosi have been made product for 4 generations.
However, When I visited in Italy, I couldn't see his products in classic shop.
Only Style Forum has information of Ambrosi.
And I heard that Ambrosi has many problems of customer satisfaction.

I want to know, Please answer me!!!!

I believe what this man is referencing is the newly-opened Villa Del Corea ( villadelcorea.com )

Many of the famous Neapolitan names like the aforementioned Visconi, Formosa, and Seminara are using this is as an outpost to build up their business and service their clients in Korea.

Appointments are by invitation only and God only knows the prices they're charging, but I'm sure it's astronomical, especially compared to what a local would pay for the same thing in Naples. On a related note, I'm sure it's the same reason why Ambrosi's service has suffered as of late - he has much bigger fish to fry (and many more dollars to chase) in building up his clientele in Korea, Japan and Singapore.

Projectaden - you will not find information here about those tailors and you wouldn't find their garments in a "classic shop" as they make bespoke suits, not ready-to-wear clothes. They would only to known to those in select circles in Italy. But from the pictures I've seen, their garments are spectacular. If you can afford the prices, you should try them out.

To insiders: Do Giardi or Formosa still take new customers in Napoli? Or are they fully concentrating on the eastern markets?
And can someone elaborate on their price points? Ambrosi's prices are known to most of us, but I couldn't find anything about those two sartorias. As I plan to visit Napoli for my first bespoke suit this September, I'm in the process of gathering as much intel as I can get.
Many thanks
