We are proud to announce the arrival of a special collection from Sartoria Castangia. The Sardinian company is the oldest established tailoring house in Italy, opened in 1850. As holders of the Royal Warrant of the Savoy family they have fitted and made suits to famous figures like Bill Clinton, Oliver Stone, Silvio Berlusconi and suits for Michael Douglas in Wall Street.
Sartoria Castangia was always renowned because its impeccable craftsmanship. With the exception of their completely unlined pieces, all the coats feature full canvas construction, handmade collars and hand attached linings. The Platinium range costists of their finest creations with even more handmade details inside. This not just results in beautiful garments but a great fit off the rack.
Our collection includes both suits and jackets in a range of different styles. Some of the sportcoats come with a very lightweight interlining and natural shoulders, while most of the suits have slightly padded shoulder construction. As Sardinia doesn't have it's own tailoring style, we can spot details which originate from Rome, Milan or Naples.
On top of the great fit and look, all the fabrics used by the company are for the highest quality. From sumptous cashmeres to sturdy tweeds, there is something for everyone. Below we highlighted our favorite sportcoats for the winter season.

Nice that you've picked up a selection of Castangia 1850.
Here's a thread I started asking the SF/CM community to provide some feedback about Castangia when I first learned of the house. A few users who have some Castangia garments provided some great feedback and comparisons to other noted Italian makers.
