INTERNAL CONSTRUCTION - FULL CANVAS
- This suit has a full canvas construction in which an interlining of canvas, made up of wool and horsehair, is sewn in between the inner suit lining and outer fabric and extends the full length of the jacket. (from the shoulders down to the base of the jacket including the lapels).
This type of construction allows the jacket to follow the body and give it a natural effect, creating a very light weave that will continue to adapt and improve over time ; Naturally a fully lined jacket will have a longer life than a fused or half canvas jacket and will be wrinkle-resistant.
The Neapolitan shoulder (Spalla Camicia in Italian) is constructed without padding, giving you a naturel and delicate look without amplifying a persons features and at the same time gives you a more spontaneous elegance
The chest pocket "Barchetta" (small boat) is cut with the upper corner pronounced recalling the shape of a boat and confers harmonious proportions at the level of the chest.
The semi slim cut enhances the silhouette and can be worn with classic shoes as well as sneakers since it is only 18 cm. at the cuff, allowing it to remain elegant and classic at the same time. Due to the semi slim cut of these trousers we have left extra fabric inside at the seams, so as to allow for simple alterations if needed. This allows for the waist, hips and legs be let out. The cuff is left long on purpose so as to allow it to be short, long or with turnups so giving that touch of individuality. A rubber strip has been incorporated into the edge of the waistband to prevent shirts from slipping out of the trousers.
