Neopolitan style tailoring
Neopolitan style tailoring seems to be getting more and more popular by the day, with a lot of orders we took over our sale period to be constructed this way. We have always been happy to experiment and have be constructing jackets in the style of those in Naples for a while now and even had a really nice compliment from the head of an Italian cloth house when they came to visit at the end of last year. All though our jackets are made in London and not Naples, two of our tailors are Italian and are familiar with soft Neapolitan tailoring. The cut is also a lot different to a traditional English style jacket, especially around the chest and shoulder area, getting the correct shape for the top sleeve to fit correctly in a shallower armhole with the correct amount of fullness in the right areas is also key. When worn the shoulder of the jacket is quite similar to a cardigan where it follows the shoulder line naturally and as it has less construction it needs to have less chest which means again its sitting very close. In all the Neopolitan jacket is an outline of yourself and doesn’t suit everybody, but the people it does suit I think looks fantastic.
