Cesare Attolini

July 6, 2010

Most Italian suitmakers regard Vincenzo Attolini as the originator of the soft-shouldered, high-armhole, 1930s-era suit that remains the prototype of Neapolitan tailored clothing. Over the years, Vincenzo’s son, Cesare, continually modified his father’s signature silhouette and the feel of the garment, often by hand-cutting the cloth without the aid of machines or even patterns.

Earlier this year, while economic pressure kept many suitmakers from altering the classics, the company—now run by Cesare’s sons, Massimiliano and Giuseppe, under their father’s watchful eye—introduced two new trendsetting shapes.

The company has modeled its new soft-shouldered, slim-cut C after a 1960s design from its extensive archives, but rendered the jacket with a lighter and softer structure to give it a more contemporary feel.

The new Double jacket, made from loftier double-faced Scottish cashmere, is precisely cut and contours the body, yet it is devoid of the soft shoulder pads and canvas inner linings that typically give tailored clothing its shape.
