Historically Naples was a crossroad of Mediterranean cultures and one of the most sophisticated European capital: craftsmanship was of the utmost importance and Neapolitan tailors were recognized as among the best in the world. These traditions live on today and in my workshop things are made with just the same pride and expertise.
The Friday Polo
A polo that works well under tailoring. They are designed to be tucked in and so cut long, with tails like a shirt. This way they do not come out of the trousers and have a cleaner finish through the waist. They are made with a collar stand, in order to stand up and roll around a jacket collar, but also have rubber collarbones in case you want the collar to not roll and remain stiff. The material, from Caccioppoli, is one of the most important aspects. This fabric is not only a beautiful quality, but is a mid-weight that (in Europe) could be worn three seasons of the year. On its own in summer, or in Spring or Autumn with a shawl-collar sweater over the top.
"Each shirt I cut is unique because it is inextricably linked to the personality and taste of the customer. I take great pride in my shirts’ perfect fit, which is achieved through a careful selection of the most suitable fabrics and attention to every single stitch. Experience, passion and research – this to me is the essence of bespoke shirtmaking."
