Although we commonly think of architecture in relation to buildings, another definition is “the complex or carefully designed structure of something.” By that definition, tailoring is architecture.
Like the architect, the tailor aims to produce work that has a sense of permeance and belonging; that looks to the future whilst acknowledging the past; that takes quality materials and transforms them via craftsmanship and technology. And just like architecture, tailoring is a vocation.
Jackets are less structured with a “barely-there” shoulder pad that gives a natural shoulder line. This look is a signature of Neapolitan bespoke tailors and it takes a high level of expertise to achieve in off-the-rack garments. The key piece is Solano - available in several fabrics including charcoal wool flannel and navy travel cloth (all woven in Italy, of course).
There is a strong collection of outerwear that coordinates with both the tailored and casual elements of the collection. Compton is the stand-out; a slim overcoat with zip out vest, produced in Italian fabrics.
As always, there are shirts and shoes; ties and pocket squares; belts and bags to complete the look.
