Description

Cifonelli is an institution in the world of bespoke tailoring. Famous for their unique shoulder​,​ their attention to details and their blend of Italian and French tailoring traditions​,​ Cifonelli is recognised around the world for both their bespoke and ready-to-wear work. Founded in 1880 by Giuseppe Cifonelli in Rome. His son Arturo (probably one of the best bespoke tailor and cutter of the century after working with London tailors)​,​ decided to move to France in 1926. Ten years later​,​ Arturo moved to its current location: 31 Rue Marbeuf​,​ close to the Champs-Elysées. His work became legendary and Cifonelli became a reference among tailors​,​ and for gentlemen around the world (his clients included actors such as Lino Ventura​,​ Cary Grant and Fred Astaire) His son Adriano took over in 1972​,​ and Cifonelli grew even bigger​,​ thanks to several high-profile clients (notably the french president​,​ François Mitterrand​,​ as well as several ministers and opposition leaders). Since the 2000's​,​ the house is managed by Lorenzo and Massimo Cifonelli​,​ the fourth-generation of Cifonelli. The company expanded. It merged with other skillful tailors (Claude Rousseau​,​ Gabriel Gonzalez​,​ both having worked for Camps de Luca) in the 2000's​,​ and the cousins were responsible for the bespoke offer of Hermès from 1992 to 2007. They also started making ready-to-wear suits​,​ as an entry point into their bespoke​,​ working with the best manufacturers (Brioni and Caruso notably)​,​ with great success. I propose a beautiful bespoke Cifonelli air force blue suit​,​ with a prince of wales pattern. Made in 1981​,​ it is a staple of any respectable wardrobe and a must-have business suit. The fabric is light enough to be worn from spring to autumn​,​ and features everything you want from Cifonelli: the iconic shoulder​,​ the cut of the lapel and the attention to details. As always with Cifonelli​​​,​​​​​ it is fully handmade​​​​​,​​​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​​​,​​​​​ from the shoulder to the collar. The conditions is excellent. The suit is best fitted for a 36UK​/​46FR size​,​ around 1m75 tall.
