To quote the British writer Samuel Johnson, “It is in refinement and elegance that the civilized man differs from the savage.”
It would appear that the 19th-century Italian tailors who built the Neapolitan sartorial tradition took Johnson’s quote to heart. And more than 100 years later, men’s tailored clothing is still designed and manufactured in Italy by an army of skilled artisans, who balance the respect for tradition with stimuli coming from the contemporary world.
