Bespoke Sartoria Zizolfi Blue Super 160's Suit - 36​/​46R

Description

Sartoria Zizolfi is the heir of the craft of two master tailors: Ciro Palermo and Claudio Attolini. Ciro Palermo grew up surrounded by tailors and started young before becoming an apprentice of Vincenzo Attolini. Vincenzo Attolini (father of Claudio and Cesare​,​ later known for his exceptional ready-to-wear) was a legendary tailor who defined the style of Naples. Learning from new cutting techniques developed by Domenico Caraceni in Rome in the 1920's​,​ he invented the spalla camicia (shirt shoulder)​,​ the unusual breast pocket (later known as "barchetta") and created a very light construction that became the trademark of Neapolitan tailoring. Ciro Palermo was the bearer of the tradition of the Neapolitan school of tailoring​,​ and was heavily featured in the 2011 documentary O'Mast​,​ along with the more famous tailoring houses such as Rubinacci​,​ Dalcuore​,​ Panico and Ciardi. He worked in a small appartment in the Chia district​,​ with almost no sign and only very few decorations. He partnered with Ciro Zizolfi to create the Sartoria Zizolfi along with Claudio Attolini​,​ still in Chia​,​ at 4 Via San Pasquale. With Palermo​,​ Zizolfi learned the craft and became his second​,​ from the fitting to the cutting. Sartoria Zizolfi is still going strong​,​ even after the departure of Ciro Palermo and Claudio Attolini​,​ producing the best of neapolitan tailoring. Their style is quite similar to Ciardi and its famous master tailor​,​ Renato Ciardi. The cut is comfortable​,​ with a slight drape​,​ and features everything you want from Naples: light construction​,​ a very soft (and slight sloped) shoulder. The gorge is moderately high​,​ while the jacket is not as short as the new generation of tailors such as Solito. I'm proposing a typical example of his work: a 3 roll 2 blue suit in a fine Super 160's wool. Made in the early 2000's​,​ it will become your favorite business suit from spring to summer​,​ with a nice pair of loafers or with oxfords. As always with Zizolfi​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​ it is fully handmade​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​ from the shoulder to the collar​,​ along with the trousers. The conditions is excellent. The suit is best fitted for someone with a 36UK​​​​​​/​​​​​​​46FR​​ size​​​​​,​​​​​ around 1m75.
