Naples is renowned worldwide for its sartorial tradition. In this area you can possibly find the largest concentration of high-end handmade menswear in the world.
Scattered all around Naples and in its region, there are hundreds of small to medium size businesses employing thousands of tailors and of course, like in the old 60’s black and white movies, you can still find people working at home handcrafting shirts or a beautiful suits.
Taking a stroll around Naples, immersed in the smell of food you see children coming out of a “friggitoria” eating a steaming piece of pizza, the streets are loud, full of merchants shouting in the local dialect selling their goods, the colours of the city are mixing with the lively colours of the clothes worn by people with their tanned skin when suddenly you find a small shop, hidden and without too much of a sign shop, simply saying “Camiceria....”. You enter the door and an old man is drinking a coffee from a cup, a strong but pleasant aroma of coffee has filled the entire shop, the place is full of pieces of cloths placed carefully on shelves while few others are scattered around the table where paper patterns are lying on it together with a large pair of scissor and tailor’s chalk when you hear the man saying “bona jurnata” (buongiorno).
This is the right place to enter to fully understand, experience, enjoy and appreciate the knowledge of a master shirt maker. His movements when he is measuring the shoulder, the neck, the cuffs, the arms length, etc... are composed and somehow are talking, they are telling you that he knows how to make the “Shirt” that will look “just right for you” because it is simply “Your Shirt”.
In the global economy made of standardised sizes and fast changing style the classic style of a man shirt is never out of place or indeed out of time. What it matters is the craftsmanship, the quality of the materials, the style, and of course a shirt that fit you right.
