Hello, gentlemen! We’d like to introduce GABE Tailored - Classically tailored custom menswear made in Italy, based in Philadelphia, serving NY, Philadelphia, and DC.
GABE Tailored is in a “soft” launch phase. We’ve come to SF for input in advance of our launch because you are the demanding men we want to guide, and then love, our products and services. (You can be product testers, read on.) My name is Chris and I will be your point of contact. I’ve been learning from SF since 2007 and am a co-founder of GABE Tailored.
Who: Gabriele D’Annunzio is our namesake. Originally from Italy, he has 5 decades of bespoke experience. Past clients include icons, athletes, and foreign rulers. Gabe sees himself as a designer and left the back-room tailoring operation years ago in favor of doing all the fittings and design consultations up front with his customers. He directs production in Philadelphia and in Italy.
Products: bespoke, made-to-measure, and semi-bespoke that falls in between.
Premise: highest quality, uncompromising service, exceptional convenience and turnaround
How: In-person, no salesmen. Gabe currently performs all fittings. Products tailored in Italy then finished in our suburban Philadelphia workshop. Weekly visits to NY and DC.
FOR SF MEMBERS:
We aim to refine our offerings (and website, service, etc.) to suit SF ideals before the official launch. Right now, you can participate in two ways:
1. On this thread.
2. As a product tester (!!!!) in NY. Post to this thread if you’re interested. We’ll PM you with details. We want to know what you want to see in terms of handwork, fabrics, etc. and will let you dictate precisely how your samples are made. These products are not free. As compensation for product testing, we’ll have an amazing surprise gift for you on launch day. No risk: products are guaranteed completely on the basis of remakes.
Ok, suggestions, questions and product testers… GO!
