How much is a good Tailored Italian Suit - The REAL Price of a Sartorial Suit & Blazer

Italian suits are the epitome of class and sophistication. It is no surprise that they come at a steep cost, but what does it really take to get one - how much does an Italian suit really cost?

In this article we will be talking about handmade, sartorial style suits from Neapolitan and Italian tailors. The price of an Italian suit depends on two things - the brand and the fabric.

For example, there are several fabrics such as Vicuña which will drive up significantly. On the cheap end of suits - we have a full suit for around $400. From this price point we have a stop off at around $1,000. Finally, we have the expensive Italian suit brands, which cost a minimum of $1500 depending on fabric type

Cheaper Italian Suit Brands

The word cheap definitely doesn't really feel right - but for lack of a better word, IsuiT has a huge range of suits that are on the cheaper side. These brands are:

Luigi Borrelli Suits

In the example below, we can see a 100% virgin wool multicoloured suit for around $450.

This will be around $400 when our Black Friday sale hits.

Their full suits are very fairly priced - considering each one is hand-tailored by a specialist.

As you can see from the picture, however, the quality is very high. Not only is the fabric high-quality, but the construction of the suit itself is also.

Kiton Handmade Tailored Suits

Kiton is a household name in the world of fashion. With seats at all of the major fashion shows - this company is probably the most famous Sartorial fashion brand in the world. Started by Ciro Paone, this brand has slowly taken over the world.

Kiton's founder once famously said "I have never compromised on Quality" - and this shines through with every single one of Kiton's suits and blazers.

The quality is second to none - as you can see in this impeccably fine example of a Kiton Suit:

This particular Kiton suit is blue & gray, with 95% cashere and 5% Vicuna.

With prices ranging between $12,000 - $15,100 this fantastic blue and grey kiton Suit costs more than some people's yearly salary.

Brioni Handmade Suits

There is a huge discussion between Sartorial aficionados as to whether Roman tailors or Neapolitan tailors are better. We would side with the Neapolitan tailors (as we are based in Arzano, on the outskirts of Napoli) - but we also very much respect the Roman tailors for their years of dedication and hard work.

In fact, Brioni was founded before most of the companies on this list - and so the Sartorial style could be argued to have been born in Rome - although Cesare Attolini and Kiton will definitely have a few things to say about that!

This Brioni suit is a beautiful example of the tailoring that comes out of Rome. This particular Suit has been crafted using 100% wool, and features hand-stitched buttonholes and pockets; making each single item totally unique. The wool is not just wool, but 150s, which is thinner but also higher-quality than normal wool. With a plaids & checks style, full lining, and double venting, this suit is the ultimate traditional sartorial piece.

Cesare Attolini Handmade Suits

Cesare Attolini is considered to be the founding company of Sartorial style. Its founder - Vincenzo Attolini - is often credited with taking the British style of suits - and refining them.

The main difference between Sartorial and British cut suits is the fact that the Italian ones are supposed to be a second skin, whereas British and American cut suits are much larger - and are normally used to hide your body shape, instead of enhancing it.

This Cesare Attolini suit should be the first choice on your list, if you're looking to add an expensive suit to your collection. This handsome 100% wool 110's suit is perfect for any occasion. If you want to make a statement with your wardrobe - this is the suit for you!

The quality of this suit cannot be overstated: from its hand-stitched buttonholes and pockets, to its full lining and double venting, there are no shortcuts taken when it comes to crafting these suits. Every single detail has been meticulously designed by Vincenzo Attolini's original vision in order to create a "second skin" style Suit - which accentuates each person's unique shape.

Kired Handmade Suits

Kired is another sister company of Kiton - but IsuiT is pleased to announce a recent collaboration with this fashion house - where they made some high-quality Sartorial-style suits.

We are happy and proud to say that we sell this collection of modern suits - made for the modern man.

They are available in all of the classic suit and blazer colours, and make for a great (and not overly expensive) central fashion piece to any wardrobe.
