Cloudy landscape.

#Me, MySelf & I.

7Flag_of_the_United_KingdomHello, today I want to show you some shots taken a few days ago, in my hometown, on a terrace overlooking the sea.

For the occasion I decided to wear a bespoke trouser, smooth, with belt loops and connections for suspenders created by the  Sartoria Ciardi with Holland & Sherry fabric. The Vanacore shirt is 9 steps by hand with Canclini fabric 140/2 and wrist cuff. The Calabrese tie, totally bespoke, in grenadine with initials on the 8cm main flap. Herring Suede shoes, Goodyear construction with single fiber.

I hope you enjoy it, the landscape and the environment as a whole, see you soon; Nicola.

29Flag_of_the_United_KingdomHello friends, today I want to show the different phases of a Sartoria Fabio Sodano bespoke trouser, starting by cutting of the fabric and ending with the final.

The trouser commissioned was created with a blu 140’s Holland & Sherry fabric, without the use of patterns using only the measures taken on my body; completely without liners as the Fabio’s custom.

Last autumn days.

#Me, MySelf & I.


Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom Hello, today I want to show you some shots taken a few days ago, in the vast prairie of the Royal forest of Portici. The clean air is the background to this place, peaceful and full of history.
Enjoying the last days of fall and then make way for wool jackets, I decided to take on a classic look, but not too much.

I wore a wool trousers with interior trim and hand-hammered, chambray shirt with 9 steps by hand and crust buttons, linen jacket (perhaps excessive for this weather) completely handmade with bellows pockets and monogram, a pochette hand-hammered and a couple of single monk to top it all.

Hoping you’ll appreciate the context, I wish you a good day, N.

“Master Tailor”, “one who can teach others the art of the trade”. Many years ago in the Neapolitan tailors used to give the Master only one who was able to watch and encourage other expert tailors being…
