The shirt is the key garment of every man’s wardrobe; is the element that, more than any other, helps define a man’s outfit and his style. Salvatore Piccolo was born lucky; as they say in Italy he was ‘born with a shirt on his back’ (a bespoke shirt, naturally) and after acquiring the fine art of “tailor-made” he began to design and make other garments with the same resolute passion: jackets, gilet, scarves and suits. Thereby, creating an entire collection and his own signature style.
Salvatore Piccolo’s exemplary aptitude as an outstanding representative of traditional Neapolitan tailoring has refined and matured over time, resulting in a more cosmopolitan and contemporary feel. His determination and his innate curiosity, combined with the desire to improve and the ability to absorb stimuli and inspirations from his travels or from meetings with his most illustrious clients and important names in international retail, have all helped raise the positioning, the style and the prospects of the Salvatore Piccolo brand.
A brand that stems from a classic and formal style of clothing, shaped by the great Neapolitan sartorial tradition, but revamped in a more contemporary way. The shapes and tailoring of the garments are never deconstructed or reinvented but simply adapted to a more modern, and if possible, an even more comfortable fit.
The accolade to Neapolitan sartorial tradition is evident in every single detail, just as the desire to look to the future is palpable in the choice of fabrics and in the colour combinations.
Salvatore Piccolo’s finely-honed perception and innate good taste enable him to source fabrics that are original and, naturally, of the finest quality. Traditional British woollen and Shetland fabrics are made in lighter weights and are combined with cottons and Japanese denim. Over 70% of the fabrics used are created ad hoc in reputable Italian factories. Patterns and vintage motifs, special finishes, antique materials each element becomes characteristic of an extremely sophisticated and superior elegance.
Naturally, even the choice of colours for each season contributes to Salvatore Piccolo’s style, a lively dose of the unconventional and contemporary but never clashing with classic good taste.
From tailored shirts to complete outfits, Salvatore Piccolo’s collection evolves and upholds the legacy of the Neapolitan tailoring tradition whilst endeavouring to write a whole new page in its history.
