I’ve finally got round to shooting four jackets that were made in the past year. Over the next week I’ll do a post on each one, and while there is no intention to make direct comparisons – that would be largely pointless, given that they are such different styles – it will be interesting to do them in series.
The first, here, is my first jacket from Solito. I’ve written a little before about Gennaro Solito and his son Luigi, who does the international visits, and there is little to add about the style. It is a classic Neapolitan cut, with shirt shoulder, minimal padding and beautifully drawn patch pockets. The cloth is from Caccioppoli and the jacket is quarter lined inside.
Luigi’s personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Shoes by Cleverley, trousers by Caliendo, sweater by Johnston’s.
