New Season Caruso: A Universal Sartorial Elixir

Additions to the Caruso range show that the house’s alchemic approach to menswear is an ongoing mission.

Peruse its sublime garments, in this e-realm to witness their signature three-roll-two Butterfly jackets, meticulous constructed shirts in cotton needlecord and Houdini wool trousers, for example, all of which make the demarcation between formal-wear and leisure-wear seem a mere ‘dressing-by-numbers’ conceit – and you won’t be surprised to hear that Parmese tailoring house Caruso takes its sartorial philosophy very seriously indeed.

A huge pillar in Caruso’s philosophy is the nation in which it was founded as a small workshop, by Neapolitan tailor Raffaele Caruso, in 1958. Being Italian, for a brand which never tires of elevating tailoring to a higher artform, is a statement of dedication to craft, of playful elegance, of fluidity and function. Unlike the tongue spoken by its 600-strong workforce of dedicated craftspeople, the language of immaculate style, as far as Caruso is concerned, is both timeless and borderless.
