A quick reminder: the Caruso men's made-to-measure event is this Saturday. Mr. Enzo Carroccia, one of their master tailors, will be here to take your measurements and help you select your fabric (along with us) for your fall suit or sport coat. Caruso also makes trousers and vests. It could be a great opportunity to order a three-piece suit (see below post regarding The Sting), or an unconstructed jacket in a cashmere or wool plaid or solid. Think of it as a sweater jacket. Custom made jackets start at $1795, suits at $2195.
This is our third trunk show with Caruso, the legendary clothing maker from Saragna, Italy (near Parma), though we have carried the line for almost nine years now. They offer a tremendous value and make when you consider the price and have many cuts to suit all body types: trim and fitted to fuller and more classic. They use Carlo Barbera, Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana fabrics among others. Caruso is not a house-hold name yet in the US (which we prefer as it is one of our best-kept secrets) but they are sold in the best-of-the-best men's stores in Italy that have a similar selection to ours. Stores that carry the likes of Kiton and Brioni, carry Caruso as well. Learn more at www.raffaelecaruso.it.
