Stile Latino: A Modern Neapolitan Aesthetic

Renewing the needs for the contemporary gentleman, Stile Latino are fast becoming a revered brand in menswear circles.

An artistic and exuberant character, Vincenzo Attolini takes his personality with him to the very source of his business. At Stile Latino’s site in Casalnuovo, he and his team are constantly studying new proportions, models, materials and tailoring solutions. They only employ sixty tailors, and make thirty-five suits per day, which allows Vincenzo to personally check each item, so that no shoulder, sleeve, collar, buttonhole, stitch or half stitch is anything less than perfect. It is at the very soul of the company that Vincenzo identifies as the most important place to set Stile Latino apart. He is not interested in celebrity, shuns most of the media, and like his father, omits labels from their suits.

It doesn’t sound like a company that was established post Millennium. The upshot of it is that the firm fully represents the new and creative journey that Vincenzo has embarked on, but bears many of the innate Neapolitan tailoring characteristics of Italy’s joint most famous tailoring dynasty.

A third-generation member of the family fiefdom, Vincenzo Attolini Junior (founder of Stile Latino) is the grandson of Vincenzo Attolini Senior who is credited with the game-changing invention of what today we’d recognise as trademark Neapolitan tailoring, whilst employed at Gennaro ‘Bebè’ Rubinacci’s British-inspired London House in the 1930s.
