Published originally in 2011, #SGST is the first and only comprehensive guide exploring the largely undiscovered world of Sicilian bespoke tailors and tailoring. The new 2017 expanded edition contains twice the content of the first edition. It remains the definitive reference on Sicilian tailoring whose signature is a softly structured jacket and whose heritage rivals Savile Row and Naples.
The author covers an expanded list of more than 20 tailors across Sicily including the four largest cities (Palermo, Catania, Messina and Syracuse) and two smaller towns (Ragusa and Modica) as well as other artisanal makers of shirts, ties and accessories. Logistical and travel details have also been updated to plan your own sartorial trip.
New to the second edition is a useful framework showing how the Mediterranean sensibility of Sicilian tailoring differs from Savile Row and Naples and why it deserves to be known as the third major school of Western tailoring.
The paperback version is full color and letter sized (8.5 x 11 inches) featuring a glossy cover and 80 lb paper.
The hardcover version is full color and case wrapped (8.25 x. 10.75 inches) featuring 70 lb paper.
