The Art of Italian Tailoring

The fabulous crew over at Kid Dandy are currently in the process of finalizing the editing on their new documentary titled, “O’Mast”. From the trailor, this looks to be a most romantic, luxurious and highly polished insider view of the art of Italian Neapolitan menswear tailoring.

Some of the men inside the design houses talk about beginning work at a very young age, to learn the precise methodology to couture tailoring, from choosing the perfect weight textiles to time consuming hand stitches. The end result has been perfectly constructed made-to-measure men’s suits for many generations of chic Italians.

In my limited knowledge of tailored menswear, creating a fitted suit from scratch is an incredibly time-consuming endeavor. There are numerous layers of interlining, interfacing, padded hand stitches and fittings. The art of it all is so inspiring and intriguing.

Highly anticipating the final cut.

Here are a few googled images of finely dressed men from around the world, followed by some of the more couture suits currently on our website.
