RTW Brioni Torlonia S160's Charcoal Grey Suit - 38​​/​​48R

Description

Brioni is​,​ with Kiton and Attolini​,​ the pinnacle of luxury in ready-to-wear and as close to bespoke as you can get off-the-rack. It is the garment of celebrities like Brad Pitt​,​ Anthony Hopkins and Christian Bale​,​ as well as two James Bond (Pierce Brosnan in all four films​,​ and Daniel Craig in Casino Royale). Brioni was founded in Rome in 1945 by Nazareno Fonticoli and Gaetano Savini​,​ with their first shop Via Barberini. The name comes from the Brionian islands​,​ the destination of choice for the Italian high-society at the beginning of the 20th century. Brioni is renowned for their use of colours​,​ a softer cut than British tailoring​,​ and a slimmer shape. The suit is a second skin​,​ while still imposing respect with the famous Roman shoulder (not as structured as Savile Row​,​ without the extravaganza of the Neapolitan). Brioni was the first company to introduce a menswear fashion show in 1952​,​ in Florence​,​ and the start of the Pitti Uomo. In 1959​,​ they launched the first ready-to-wear Couture line with their factory in Penne​,​ Abruzzo​,​ the birthplace of Fonticoli. They proved you can create a garment in a factory​,​ without losing the quality and precision of bespoke suitmaking. They also created the concept of Trunk show​,​ where they would visit a city for a period of time to showcase their work and take orders from clients who could not go to Rome. During the 1950's and 1960's​,​ the Italian jet set and Hollywood celebrities all went to Brioni​,​ from Clark Gable to John Wayne​,​ as well as Marcello Mastroianni and Cary Grant. Now owned by Kering​,​ Brioni is still made with the highest standards and has celebrated their 75th anniversary in Florence in 2020. I propose a classic Brioni suit for the mid-season. Made in a light Super 160's wool​,​ this charcoal grey suit with peak lapels is a great example of Brioni's style. Classic yet contemporary​,​ it is the perfect business suit. The Torlonia cut is slim-fitted​,​ without the excess of other luxury houses. It is fully handmade​​​​,​​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​​,​​​​ from the shoulder to the collar. Such piece would cost you off-the-rack around 5000 euros. It is in excellent condition. The suit is best fitted for someone with a strong 36UK​​​/​​​​46FR​,​ or a slim 38UK​/​48FR size​,​ around 1m75 to 1m85. Here are the measurements Shoulders: ​​43​,​5cm Sleeve length: 61cm (with 5cm of fabric to let out) Chest: 50cm Waist at button: 47cm Jacket length: 78cm (collar included​​​​,​​​​ with 3​,​5cm of fabric to let out) Lapels: 11cm Waist for trousers: 42cm (with 4cm of fabric to let out) Length from inseam: 74cm Length total: 102cm (with 5cm of fabric to let out) Legs width: 19cm (with 6cm of fabric to widen it) Trouser Cuffs: 5cm Quality equivalent to the following houses: Attolini​​​,​​​ Cifonelli (RTW)​​​,​​​ Ermenegildo Zegna (Su Misura)​​​,​​​ Isaia (Red Coral Line)​​​,​​​ Kiton​​​,​​​ Liverano & Liverano​​​,​​​ Loro Piana​​​,​​​ Ralph Lauren (Purple Label)​​​,​​​ Santandrea (Saint Andrews)​​​,​​​ Stefano Ricci​​,​ Tom Ford​​​,​​​ Zilli
