"He maintained, incidentally (and probably correctly), that the spider’s silk was superior in quality to the ordinary stuff spun by silkworms, and he never wore a tie that was made of any other material. He possessed about forty of these ties altogether, and in order to acquire them in the first place, and in order also to be able to add two new ties a year to his wardrobe, he had to keep thousands and thousands of Arana and Epeira diademata (the common English garden spiders) in an old conservatory in the garden of his country house outside Paris, where they bred and multiplied at approximately the same rate as they ate one another. From them, he collected the raw thread himself – no one else would enter that ghastly glasshouse – and sent it to Avignon, where it was reeled and thrown and scoured and dyed and made into cloth. From Avignon, the cloth was delivered directly to Sulka, who were enchanted by the whole business, and only too glad to fashion ties out of such a rare and wonderful material."

Oui j’avais remarqué, merci. On voit que ce sont uniquement des modèles à revers de 8 cm, donc je laisse passer: pas assez napolitain pour moi.
Anonymous said: Hello Dirnelli, your blog is really impressive! I was wondering if you ever had a chance to look at the cheaper Caruso Line. I found some suits in New York with a no-so-hefty price tag (800 USD) which were branded with the Caruso tag. I googled it and found some on Yoox andEbay, but nothing in Europe. It's just a white tag with CARUSO on it. Any clue about this line?
I can only encourage you to pull the trigger at that price. Caruso makes suits for just about every high end boutique on the planet, at a consistently high level of quality. When a boutique or brand wishes to promote itself, the Caruso label dissapears. But when a boutique feels that Caruso’s brand is stronger than their own (I’ve noticed this in Italy alot, in mid-size cities), then the Caruso label gets put forth.
