The best part of seeing a new season’s worth of collections is the chance to obsess over the Salvatore Piccolo line. Being a good American and not speaking any Italian (the good American thing = sarcasm) and Salvatore speaking only a tiny bit of English, we focus our communication on shirts and the process of making them.
I’ve covered the last three collections from Piccolo without fail. For whatever reason woven shirts keep my attention and the stuff he turns out always impresses me. This season in addition to the all hand-made casual and dress shirt offerings, Salvatore Piccolo is introducing a small collection of sport jackets for spring. The silhouettes for the jackets are slim but not crazy —made to be wearable and in beautiful patterns and fabrics.
Like everything else the company sells, the jackets are all hand-made in Naples, Italy. With all of that hand work, the new sportcoats are going to set you back a pretty penny, but the quality can help soften the blow. These may not be the clothes for everyone, that is for sure —for all my obsessing I only own one shirt from Salvatore Piccolo, but even if you just see these at a store you can appreciate the care and commitment to clothes of a very high standard. One could agree, that is another language Salvatore and I can communicate with.
