Today is a work day, and having had my coffee I am about to embark on my morning commute from the balcony in the photo. Pin stripe suited, I will walk downhill for ten minutes to a taxi stand. The cab will careen through narrow streets for another ten minutes before delivering me to a hydrofoil, which will in turn spend forty minutes getting to Naples where I will be met by a car and a driver/interpreter who will take me another half an hour to the Cravattificio that is my destination.
I have been looking for a Neapolitan necktie maker since I parted ways with E&G Cappelli six months ago, and hopefully today will be the formal beginning of a new relationship. I shall save the name of the house for now, however the plan is that they will be providing the ASW store with those unlined three-fold foulards that are so uniquely Italian. Or so I hope.
Once business is concluded, there is lunch to be eaten, and afterwards a visit to tailors Napolisumisura before the return to Capri for dinner. I would not want to do it every day but as commutes go it has its moments.
