RTW Cesare Attolini Pure Camelhair Coat - 38​​/​​48R NEW

Description

Cesare Attolini is considered the peak of classic ready-to-wear and the closest thing to bespoke as possible while buying off-the-rack. Founded in 1930 in Naples by the tailor Vincenzo Attolini​,​ it quickly became eponymous with Neapolitan tailoring​,​ and a break from english stiffness. The lightness of the construction (no padding in the shoulder​,​ soft lapels)​,​ the unusual shape of the breast-pocket​,​ later known widely as "the Barchetta"​,​ and the softness of the fabric​,​ created a sensation. In the 1950's​,​ Hollywood celebrities from Clark Gable to Marcello Mastroianni​,​ came to Attolini​,​ as well as royalties like Victor-Emmanuel III and the Duke of Windsor. The later discovered Attolini while walking in Capri and asking a passer-by where is garment came from. In the 1960's​,​ his son Cesare took over after working years with his father and having directed some of the best Turin's tailor shops. He continued to make bespoke garments​,​ but later decided that the future was in ready-to-wear. In 1987​,​ a new workshop was created in the suburbs of Naples​,​ in Casalnuovo​,​ where most of the bespoke suits were made by Neapolitan tailors. Along with Kiton's founder Ciro Paone​,​ Attolini proved that you can still produce in a factory and maintain a very high level of quality and handwork on a garment. Now​,​ Cesare Attolini has 130 tailors working for them​,​ producing 50 jackets and suits a day​,​ still handmade​,​ in some of the most luxurious fabrics (Cashmere​,​ English and Italian Wool​,​ Irish linen​,​ Camelhair​,​ or even Vicuna). I propose a magnificent Cesare Attolini overcoat (similar to a polo coat) in pure Camelhair. It is completely new​,​ with the threads still attached and the spare buttons in the pocket. It features their classic barchetta​,​ a nice back belt (martingale)​,​ turn-up cuffs​,​ and a large collar that you can close all the way up to protect you from all kinds of weather. It is the perfect garment for autumn and winter​,​ either as a formal coat with your best suit​,​ or as something more casual with a rollneck and a pair of trousers (corduroy​,​ flannel​,​ even jeans). It is fully handmade​​​,​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​,​​​ from the shoulder to the collar. Made in 2013​,​ such piece would cost you off-the-rack around 10 000 euros. The coat is best fitted for someone with a 38UK​​/​​​48FR size around 1m75 to 1m85. Here are the measurements Shoulders: ​​45cm Sleeve length: 63cm (with 6cm of fabric to let out) Chest: 50cm Waist at button: 52cm Coat length: 114cm (collar included​​​​,​​​​ with 5cm of fabric to let out) Lapels: 11cm Cuffs: 6cm Quality equivalent to the following houses: Brioni​​,​ 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
