ORAZIO LUCIANO LA VERA SARTORIA NAPOLETANA

Countless diligent tailors, who are responsible for the incomparable fit and character of every suitjacket, pair of trousers or shirt, work with all their blood, sweat and tears for many hours of hard manual work for the perfect sartorial pieces.

But which philosophy and, above all, which group of people is behind these industrious tailors and behind these individual manufactories?

In order to provide you with valuable insights into the sartorial world, we will address these questions within the new section "Behind The Brand".

In our first article, we are talking about no other than Orazio Luciano.

The success story dates back to the year 1992. After his long-standing work as the first cutter at Kiton, Orazio Luciano, whose brand is named after him, decided to set up his own business. Up until now, the manufactory of Orazio Luciano is situated in the area of San Giovanni a Teduccio, in the southwestern part of Naples, just a few meters from the Gulf of Naples.

THE ORAZIO LUCIANO PHILOSOPHY

The full name "Orazio Luciano - La Vera Sartoria Napoletana" translates as "The Real Neapolitan Tailoring". So it is self-evident that the suits and jackets always have to fit perfectly.

It is an honest product which scores with a wonderful fit as well as extreme softness and lightness. Like other well-known manufactures, Orazio Luciano also relies on the classic Neapolitan art of tailoring.

These include:

A soft construction of the jacket

  • The typical shirt shoulders, better known as "Spalla Camicia", which are significantly elaborated by Orazio Luciano

  • The Neapolitan breast pocket, better known as "Barchetta"

  • The wider lapel

  • The hand-sewn buttonholes

Due to the high-cut armholes and the extremely easy processing without padding, a feeling of lightness is created from the very first moment. The high armhole and the soft shoulder construction let the suit fit perfectly - an effect that you will feel right at the first try!

Tailoring

At Orazio Luciano we favor a soft constructed, masculine cut garment, with a shaped waist and typical Neapolitan mappina shoulder. We aim to create a silhouette that is well balanced and in perfect proportion. Our Made To Measure service perfectly bridges the gap between bespoke and ready-to-wear and offers the client an efficient solution to have a suit made to his own specifications.

The client would need to fit our master garments at the hands of one of our tailoring advisors and discusses and chooses the style of suit and the fabric and particular buttons and lining that he would like. This is a time-conscious and effective service that doesn't compromise on quality. We cut our clothes to create a harmonious and flattering line, naturally revealing something of the character of its owner. Every customer has their own pattern, meticulously hand cut to his individual measurements and figure, refined through the fitting process.

For a new customer this process will take approximately three to four months to complete and will usually involve four fittings. Once a pattern has been created all subsequent clothes can be completed more rapidly, each garment is cut and fitted under the control of Head Cutter Orazio Luciano.
