Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a fine quality suit made by Cesare Attolini of Naples.  Attolini has roots dating to 1930, when Cesare’s father Vincenzo started his tailoring business.  Vincenzo is credited with having created the first deconstructed suit.  This suit is made in a wool and cashmere blend with a thin pinstripe.  The striping consists of a double silver grey thread with a maroon red thread through the centre flanked by single thread silver grey striping - the result is subtle and classy.  The jacket is made with medium width notched lapels with a three button closure.  The shoulders are padded and there is a flapped pocket at either side.  There is also a chest pocket and the sleeves have 4 button cuffs.  The back has a double vent.  The pants have a flat front, a pocket at either side, two button down pockets at the back and leg that tapers slightly to the bottom. 

Label: Cesare Attolini Napoli.  

Material: 90% Wool 120s / 10% Cashmere.  Lining is 100% Bemberg.  Bemberg is a type of rayon used for high quality suits and coats.
