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.

FRATELLI PIACENZA S.P.A.

COMPANY

The right balance between innovation and tradition, harmony with the environment and recognition of the value of human beings has made the Fratelli Piacenza wool mills an example of the excellence of Made in Italy at international level.
From top-quality fleeces to fabrics destined to be applied in haute couture or transformed into an article of clothing to wear, every single phase of the transformation is carried out with the greatest sensitivity. Our raw materials first have to face a long, adventurous journey: once they have arrived in the wool mill, they could tell many a story about their places of origin, but their real story is still waiting to be written. After undergoing the process of textile transformation and quality control at every stage in the proceedings, their original noble quality is intensified in fabrics of exceptional value.

TRADITION AND INNOVATION

the feeling is an attitude. Paying attention to listening to human diversity, embracing it to discover that every individual is an added value who contributes to the firm’s human and productive growth. The glue that holds tradition and innovation together is sensitivity. It guides the way towards new discoveries, enabling potential to be discerned and embraced to design the future. Piacenza and nature live in a vital symbiosis that goes further than a mere contemplation of nature’s beauty. It’s a sense of belonging, of experiencing nature actively and accepting its challenges. This is intimately related to fine-tuning the sensory capacities that come into play throughout the production process, to achieve fabrics that are sensitively touching.
