Tailors in Calabria

It’s well known that many of the best tailors and cutters throughout Italy are from Calabria (the toe of the boot), but I can find no information about actual sartorie in Calabria.

I’m planning to spend a few weeks there next May, and I’m curious to find some local tailors.

I know there are many in Sicily, a 15-minute ferry ride away; surely there must be some good ones on the mainland in that little-visited region which has produced so many fine craftsmen working in Naples, Rome, Florence, Milan and even London. Yet even Google Italian yields scant info.

I plan to ask some tailors in Rome and Naples, but looking for any info; language is not a problem. Will certainly post reviews after what I hope is a fruitful trip.

Have you looked at Permanent Style? I feel like there was either a Calabrian or Puglian tailor covered there a few months back.
