The Rake Sale: De Petrillo

De Petrillo are well-renowned for their traditional Neapolitan style, but they are unique in the way they implement clever nuances of colour and pattern. Having just joined The Rake Sale, we thought it apt to narrow down some of their standout pieces.

For menswear enthusiasts, the name De Petrillo will undoubtedly be a familiar one. Since its establishment by tailoring aficionado Benedetto De Petrillo in 2009, the house has become beloved the world over for its timeless designs. His focus lies in handcrafting garments that are true to the traditional Neapolitan style - softly silhouetted, relaxed and unstructured, albeit with a somewhat contemporary interpretation. Benny draws inspiration from the artistic, architectural and spiritual landscape of his home city, which transcends into jackets offered in a beautiful mélange of colours, and cut from the best vintage fabrics.
