Only true connoisseurs dare the Solaro.
Solaro fabric was the first technical fabric created by man. It is the Italo-British doctor Louis Westenra Sambon, specialist in tropical diseases, who in the early twentieth century around 1907 developed this magic beige / khaki armor on the outside, but with a red protective layer inside for the British soldiers.
According to the legend, the red frame that runs through the fabric is capable of neutralizing UV rays and dissipating heat.
The solaro is historically a British invention, but as today it is associated with Italy, Gianni Agnelli willingly wore it. By capturing the rays of light, the fabric will restore a multitude of colored reflections that will vary depending on the angle from which it is viewed.
- It is a Half Canvas jacket, completely made in Italy by renowned tailors which produces men’s suits for the world's most prestigious fashion houses. The canvas is applied from the shoulder by the underside of the jacket to the middle of the chest, for this reason, it is called "Half Canvas". This construction provides a fluidity where it is applied either in the upper part of the chest where one needs comfort and flexibility for everyday movements. The jacket will, therefore, have a structure and at the same time an elegant fluidity. The fabric gives the jacket greater durability compared to a fused construction jacket and makes it comfortable and breathable.
- 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.
A tailored trousers with single pleats, a High-rise with a slim fit cut, a large extended tab fastening belt and the side adjusters. 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 turn-ups so giving that touch of individuality.
