FABRICS

It’s an incontestable truth: a suit with an awful cut ruins the high quality of the fabric, enthusiastically chosen by the customer for its originality and softness… but it’s rather consolidated that a mediocre fabric debases and cancels all the art and experience that a great tailor gives the production of a suit.

It’s essential to be able to choose the fabric in order to obtain the best  success of your suit; you need to know well the different between all the fabrics for being able to value and decide the most suitable one. We usually choose and approve the fabrics after precise tests, “getting them under way”, in this way we always obtain satisfying results from our customers. The choice of fabrics we use to our heads and you see at this site is a small part of the complete typology of our collections, but at the same time contains the essential and indispensable.

WOOL

This fibre is obtained from the sheep pile: merinos races are the most precious and esteemed, while the pile of the most common sheep is bristly and quick instead, very fine for the winter cardings.  We distinguish various types of wool from their characteristics as regards sheen, refinement, undulation, elasticity, softness and flexibility. All types are hydro-absorbent, hydro-repellent and barely inflammable. Obviously, a woolen cloth is resistant and does not crash.


LINEN

It’s a natural fibre obtained from a flower stem (Linum usitatissimum). There are many varieties: with a light blue flower, thin and precious, with a rose or white flower, more resistant. Among the Italian flowers there are those from the Padana plane, with a variation of colors from yellow/brown-red and those from Campania, near Naples, with a gold pigment. Those flowers from Russia and Belgium are grey and bright, the Dutch ones are strong and rough instead. Finally, the Irish flowers are light silver; they’re very known for their softness and strength. The linen is very absorbent, comfortable and it does not cause any allergies. It can be worn well for life and it will appear soft, without pleats and crumples.

COTTON

After linen and wool, cotton is the oldest textile fibre. It covers the 57% world demand as regards clothing industry, and not only. It’s esteemed for various uses, thanks to its great characteristics. Cotton is resistant, and it’s the most washable  fibre, (even under very high temperatures, with alkaline detergents) considering that its resistance increases when it is wet. It absorbs the perspiration, it does not irritate the skin, it does not get dirty easily and you can be dyed.


NOBLE FIBRES

These fibres derive from the excellent fleece of particular animals, such as Alpaca, Llama, Vicuna and Angora goat. The best ones come from Mongolia upland. In most cases the fibre is obtained from the fleece’s under pile, that is very soft. Some fibres keep their natural color and they are rarely dyed.
