For those who may be interested, renowned Neapolitan tailor Renato Ciardi is planning to do a tour in the Untied States. Ciardi, as many here know, trained under Angelo Blasi, but then went on to adopt a very soft, light approach to tailoring. Thirty slots are available for reservation. I believe most of the tour is taking place in California, but Enzo, the gentleman who is organizing the tour, tells me they may go out to NYC as well. The first appointment will take place sometime at the end of October, but details are probably best confirmed with Enzo. Measurements will be taken by Renato's son, Vincenzo, and the cutting will be done by both gentlemen. The three fittings are also scheduled to take place over the course of ninety days, so it will be a quick tour. Prices start at $6,700 per suit and $5,400 per sport jacket. CMT is unfortunately not available. To place an appointment, interested parties should contact Mr. Enzo De Bernando from Atelier Napoli by phone at (415) 450-8214, or email him at [email protected]. The due date for signing on is September 20th.
