Antica Sartoria Leonardi via Neapolitan Tailoring via Deer Style, Brisbane, Australia

Fine Southern Italian tailoring is now available in Australia. DeeR offers the authentic Neapolitan style "su misura" (bespoke).

Neapolitan tailoring known for its more soft and relaxed approach to tailoring is perfect for The Australian climate and lifestyle. The suit jackets feature, the infamous shirt shoulder ("Spalla Camicia"), generous lapels (classically proportioned), full hand stitched canvas in a semi structured light weight semi-lined construction.

I would like you to introduce you to our tailor, Leonardi Alfonso, who is the proprietor and head tailor of Antica Sartoria Leonardi based in Naples, Italy.

Signor Alfonso, previously worked at the big names in Italian Tailoring Kiton and Borrelli but decided to start up his own venture.

His signature style is three buttoned jacket, where the top button is placed on the lapel, so that the jacket wears like a two button. His jackets feature the generous take on boat-shaped barchetta chest pocket, this perfectly matches other proportions of the jacket. He also tailors the garments with the classic Neapolitan shoulder, which is generally unpadded, without sleeveroll and is slightly full at where the sleeve meets the sleevehead. This makes for an extremely comfortable jacket, and aesthetically also features the gentle hand tucked folds or grinza at the sleevehead.

The above style fits in perfectly with DeeRs own house style and sartorial philosophy. We believe that clothing should look and feel relaxed, comfortable, without looking sloppy. It should also be a little bit gutsy.
