Soft Tailoring with Caccioppoli
Not having a house style as such at Graham Browne means we are more open to suggestion and willing to experiment. Neapolitan tailoring Is the most popular request, The body canvas is much softer then in a standard suit jacket and has no chest canvas or chest felt at all, the shoulder pads and sleeve head are replaced with a thin ply of felt and the width reduced so the shoulder starts earlier into the top of the sleeve and takes a more natural curve, pressing the seams open keeps it flush. The result is a much more lighter feel, more like a cardigan and works well casually with jeans. Patch pockets and quarter inch hand swelled seam finishes the look. The cloth we used was Caccioppoli, a cloth house based in Napoli with cashmere blends in all types of colours and weaves from Donegal to herringbone which is perfect for Neapolitan tailoring.
