Derek over at Put This On interviews Gianluca Migliarotti, the director of the much anticipated O’Mast, a documentary on tailoring in Napoli. Click on the link below to read the full interview.
In the world of classic men’s style, Naples holds a prominence that is only rivaled by London. The city is located in the South of Italy, situated on the country’s west coast by the gulf.
