The tailor’s touch can be seen in every detail. Practically all the steps involved in its creation and production are carried out by hand. The fabric is cut by expert hands, with great care taken to ensure that stripes and checks meet exactly when the pattern of the fabric requires it. Carefully selected fabrics range from top quality wool to prized cashmere, brilliant silk, fine cottons and linens. The jacket lining, the sewing of the neck, the making of the pockets, the rever, the armhole, the embroidery of the buttonholes, just to name a few, are strictly handmade details. The inside waistband of our trousers, the bartacks on belt-loops, the corners of front pockets, the back pockets and buttonholes are all hand-sewn, as dictated by the rules of long-established tailoring traditions. The inside of the jacket is lined with camel hair in the front and horsehair on the shoulders. Hand-stitched seams, with looser stitches than machine ones, give the garment a natural stretchiness that ensures greater comfort and elasticity. Authentic tradition of tailoring, true Italian-made fashion and a great focus on the materials used, along with typically understated taste, give the garment an absolutely exclusive and unique character.
