If you are serious about dressing well, Sleevehead's Guide to Sicilian Tailors is the first and only guide to unlocking the last secret in men's bespoke tailoring.
Based on years of travel, research and personally commissioning bespoke clothes in Sicily, I sum up what I know and love about Sicilian tailors and their approach to cutting and making superbly tailored clothes.
#SGST remains the first and only comprehensive guide exploring the largely undiscovered world of Sicilian bespoke tailoring whose signature is a softly structured jacket and whose heritage rivals Savile Row and Naples. New to the second edition is a useful framework comparing Sicilian tailoring to other modern tailoring strategies (primarily English and Italian approaches).
The book covers an expanded list of more than 20 tailors across Sicily including the four largest cities (Palermo, Catania, Messina and Syracuse) and two smaller towns (Ragusa and Modica) as well as other artisanal makers of shirts, ties and accessories. Logistical and travel details have also been updated to plan your own sartorial trip.
