Italian Tailoring

A Glimpse into the World of Sartorial Masters

Text by Yoshimi Hasegawa.

Men's tailoring in Italy is a veritable art tradition, the product of a long legacy of elegance, taste and appreciation. In fact, made-to-measure garments and shoes entail painstaking measuring and a transformation of these measurements into a perfect object, thanks to the skilled craftsmanship of tailors and the use of refined textiles. For those who know how and where to look, each garment speaks to the secrets and history of the place where it was made and customized.

Italian Tailoring offers an insider's view into the world of Italian tailoring and its key protagonists. Journalist Yoshimi Hasegawa, an expert in European tailoring, presents an extraordinarily stylish travelogue, surveying tailoring across the country. Beginning at the beginning—with the famed Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric mill—this publication profiles 28 historic tailor shops in Italy and the famed names behind them (from Donnadio to Musella; Liverano & Liverano to Sartoria Napoletana; Rubinacci and Attolini to Caraceni, Ciardi and Pirozzi).

Italian Tailoring leads the reader on a journey through Italy, from north to south, in search of the haute tailoring and the practitioners who have shaped the world-famous Italian style.

Sartorial mastery in 'Italian Tailoring'

Sartorial mastery in 'Italian Tailoring'

"Why do we wear clothes," Yoshimi Hasegawa asks in the Introduction to Italian Tailoring, his new survey of living Italian sartorial masters and their historical houses. "To rephrase the question: why are we captivated by beauty?" He concludes, "Akin to the sun or the moon, beauty is an undeniable fact of life. Beauty is the Italian's paragon, an irreducible and universal currency. Tailoring personifies these differing ideals. Italian hand-stitching is exquisite, but hand-stitching alone does not necessarily dictate a fine suit. The perfect suit is not a panacea. We each seek different qualities in our garments, and thereby have differing definitions of the ideal suit. This gives rise to individual sartorial flair and the suit itself, as a mode of expression that has flourished in Italy."
