Brown ‘Art du Lin’ suit from Pirozzi and Whitcomb

June 26th 2024

Quite a few people have asked about how the ‘Art du Lin’ linen from Solbiati performs, as it’s become quite a trend across different tailoring brands. Indeed, I hear Solbiati have now largely sold out of a lot of it and there are l...

If you don't have anything like this already, I might go for the W Bill, Flynn. My only concern is the jacket working well on its own, so maybe have it in the most casual make you can...

Pirozzi dupioni-silk jacket: Review 

May 18th 2022

This jacket from Sartoria Pirozzi doesn’t really need a normal review. The point of it was to cover the tailor again because they are now coming to London frequently, having taken a share of a space in Shepherd Market. And it was to check th...

As I return from two summer trips – one for a week in Florence, the other a week in Naples – it seems a fitting time to run through what I pack for trips such as these. I know readers have asked about it in the past. Of course, an...

Hi Frederik, I don't think they do I'm afraid. They produce very seasonal items that aren't available for very long. However, we produced our own version which I frankly think is better, and much better value for money -...

January 30th 2017

This is the corduroy suit I featured the fitting of last October - at the E. Marinella store in London. Although labelled as Marinella, it was made by Nunzio Pirozzi - a Neapolitan tailor with a wonderful moustache and a sterling reputation in Napl...
