There seems to be a belief that for a jacket/coat to drape and fit well, and have shape, that either the coat has to have an internal canvas, or that you have to use thick heavy itchy tweed. I would like to say that if the cutter is SKILLED enough, you do not need such things. Below are three jackets from Anna Matuozzo. None are the heavy itchy tweeds (in fact two are cashmere), and none have any internal support - all the shape comes from the way the coat is cut and stitched together. Btw, the jackets are NOT short, it is just the angle of the photo, and don't get on my case about the popped collar.. Anna wanted me to take the photo with the collar in that manner.











Here are some polo shirts that Anna made for a friend of mine . She does not like to make a short sleeve, but he wanted one for the summer. The brown is a merino/cashmere blend, the white is a midweight pique, and the sky blue is a mercerized lightweight pique.












And Matt, especially for you for making me hungry!

RE: last pic. Is that what americans call a calzone? The two examples seem to have some sort of internal support.

I think it is a fried, stuffed pizza. Calzones I have had have all been baked. I think the high heat of frying just puffs it up more. Good stuff, Jan!

It's amazing to me that so much Napoli styling is slim fit; yet they make (and I presume actually eat) fried pizza!

But they also walk almost every where, they do not drive to the mall or the market, they walk, they get out for coffee and stand around and chat, they do not run back to their desk with Starbucks, and so on. They also eat much smaller portions than we do here in NA. The same holds true for the French. You do not see nearly as many obese people (elderly ladies aside, we are speaking about the men)

I like the coats, they look really nice. There are certain items (even for men) that are better made by a dressmaker than by a tailor. I'm almost certain, there will be some (probably fused) interfacing, at least on the underside of the lapels as well as taping along the seams..........What about an inside shot?

But those "Polo shirts"............they look hideous with the two-piece collars, interfaced with the heaviest cardboard available. Surely, Signora Matuozzi could have come up with a more appropriate shape for a casual collar.

Anna giveth and Anna taketh away.........interfacing that is!

Wow. They look identical to a Vietnamese dish, called "banh goi". Only that the latter is stuffed with pork, lentils and rice noodles, I think.

I don't feel any fusing inside the lapels. The first coat is lined,the others are not.

As for the polo collars, the interlining is soft and unfused, and since they are new, the collar appears to look stiff but in fact it is soft.

74.1% United States

45.5% Italy

(J., love the first coat especially.)
