SUIT STYLES: THE ITALIAN CUT

Ermenegildo Zegna, Armani, Nazareno Fonticoli - are some of the many names who have significantly impacted the design of the Italian suit. With a slim and stylish design to reflect the nature of the Italians, the Italian cut plays on the smaller waist of the average European man to create a dramatic inverted triangle. This lends itself to both an image of power and the impression that you know fashion.

The Italian suit is characterised by the high buttons, padded shoulders, very slim and tailored waists, and the absence of pocket flaps and vents. They pair best with pants with a tapered waist, tight hips and no breaks.

The Italian suit works better for any man who’s small-framed, as many Italian men are. Short, thin guys are well-served by the characteristically short jacket and high buttoning stance of Italian suits, and thin men look sharper in their slimmer fit.

It is the suit for the sartorially inclined, modern man; guaranteed to set you apart from everyone else in the room. It is a suit that will get you noticed and a suit which gets appreciated.
