Kiton Suits | Salt Lake City, Utah

Kiton was founded in 1956 by Ciro Paone, a fifth-generation fabric merchant who made a visionary move into tailoring. From then on, they insist that everything goes around the quality of the fabrics. They have always worked with leading fabric producers, motivating research for new qualities of yarns to create the most exclusive fabrics in the world. Furthermore, with the quality and uniqueness of its handcrafted creations, Kiton gradually has become the finest clothing brand in the world.

Today we are pleased to introduce their top three models of made to measure suits.

THE K50 MODEL

 

This suit model is made exclusively by five of our finest tailors, who follow its construction from the design concept to the definition of every single detail, devoting 50 hours of meticulous labor. Each of these tailors is able to produce a maximum of fifty K50 suits per year.

 

The K50 model follows the line of the wearer’s body in a natural way, so as to always guarantee a perfect fit.

The suit can be considered perfect because of its shape, its adaptability and the stitching of the fabric, its entirely handmade preparation and for its pockets, which are intricately finished in great detail.

MOD. LASA

 

As Kiton’s oldest and finest model, only a few of these suits being created a year by a single tailor who dedicates 40 hours to each individual apparel.

They produce The LASA model follows the shape of the body so thoroughly that it seems sewn on. This is even more apparent in the sleeves, tapered at the forearms, making the jacket as soft as a shirt.

When worn, the suit is extremely light, almost intangible. These qualities all derive from its inner ultra-fine linen canvas, unpadded shoulders, and the tailor’s skillful hand-stitching

Each stage of the production of a LASA garment is unique and meticulously undertaken: especially the modeling, ironing and sewing at the neck make this garment one of a kind. In other words, nothing is left to chance in this suit’s creation.

THE MODEL CIPA 1960

 

The CIPA model is the newcomer. Created in the sixties by Ciro Paone, it has recently been reinstated into the current collections with a revised styling, with the goal of improving the ancient tradition of Neapolitan tailoring but adapting it to modern trends in worldwide fashion.

A new shape, a slimmer outline and high-class fabrics designed specifically for Kiton that are motivated by the younger generations, who are fascinated by the elegance and superiority of the Kiton style and who like to dress smartly.

As always, the result is a matchless style, deriving both from the design concept and the finishing stages; every detail is studied to guarantee the maximum exclusivity to the man who wears this special making.

Our official launch date is going to be September, 10 in conjunction with our 110th anniversary party! We hope to see you all downtown Salt Lake so you can see and wear for yourself the finest in the world.

 

Eidos Napoli | Salt Lake City, Utah

 

 

Eidos Napoli is a tailored clothing and lifestyle brand which is led by Creative Director, Antonio Ciongoli, and it was launched by Isaia Corp as a stand-alone brand in 2013, based in NYC. As a secondary brand by Isaia, Eidos Napoli has been hailed as the “cool younger brother” to the luxury Italian menswear brand by upholding the tradition of superior quality and meticulous craftsmanship but also taking a different approach with its appearance and attitude.

The word “eidos” is Greek, and it means “the soul of something” or the “essence of something”, what it means is “true form”. As their name, the brand is all about doing things the right way.

In order to balance craftsmanship and keep the brand accessible, they choose their partners very carefully. Their main supplier, Michelangelo, produces the suits and outerwear in a small town called Frosinone. The factory is owned by Isaia, and has been for more 35 years. They’re trying to do things the right way and become custodians of a tradition.

They produce everything from swim trunks to tuxedos, and their production is all done in Italy with a full canvas construction. Eidos takes the aesthetic of fine Neapolitan tailoring in a more approachable way with a casual elegance.

While maintaining that classic sense of style, Eidos still does something new. The way they do that is by taking people on a trip. And every single season they try putting things together in a slightly different way, whether by mixing colors or by introducing some new subtlety in texture or fabric to the collection.

Their target customers are people who are interested in putting themselves together. The kind of guys who cares about getting dressed every day, and showing people their best self every day. However, people don’t want to look like spending all day thinking about what they were going to wear that day. Thus, what Eidos do is that they try to focus on simplicity is for the guy who wears the clothing. The way they put the collection together is very much engineered to make shopping the collection as simple as possible.

Simplicity is Happiness. This brand, Eidos, is being able to make their customers confident and delighted every day.

We are so excited that Eidos is coming to Utah Woolen Mills in Fall 2015. Come in and join us September 10 for our official launch party!

Di Bianco | Salt Lake City, Utah

 

            The Scarpe di Bianco men’s footwear collection offers classic shoes with contemporary twists. The combination of everlasting models with fashionable colors, and updated designing with traditional details, leads to decidedly current yet elegant models. The goal of the company is to offer men a custom experience through a multitude of models, lasts, soles, leathers, and color options.

 

Scarpe di Bianco uses the premium materials and handmade workmanship to produce Norwegian and Goodyear welted Bench made shoes. The extreme importance in detail is prominent in the rich colors and burnishes applied to the finished calf skins. The production is highly artisanal in nature witnessed by the fact that no more than 25 pairs are produced per day.

 

Di Bianco only uses True Grain leather which is the highest rank of leather that requires no alterations. Their skins come from France and are selected from the utmost quality lots. The skins are tanned using the chrome tanning technique which results in softer and suppler leather that is very firm and more long-lasting than vegetable tanned leather.

Di Bianco tricks all the leathers and linings by hand whereby we select the best place on the skins for cutting the leather pieces that will eventually form the upper. This results in a greater amount of consumption of leather per pair but guarantees that the upper is of the complete best quality and appearance.

 

The upper is made and sewn entirely by hand. Di Bianco includes a comfortable toe liner as well as double lining inside the heel counters.

Raw leather soles and heels are trimmed and beveled to reach the ideal lines and thickness as demanded by each customer. The leather is buffed and colored using non-toxic pigments. Metal tacks are used to support the toe and heels and to provide an elegant finish.

 

 

Di Bianco uses the optimum polishes and colorants available in their hand polishing process. They even hand polishes black calfskin. The burnishing of Di Bianco shoes is a very long and intensive procedure that often requires the use of plentiful colors in combination to achieve the final color. Di Bianco employs champagne to enhance the burnishing effect. Several colors offered are “Based on Black” whereby the shoe begins as black calfskin but through the removal of some of the pigmentation and the hand application of additional colors the end result is a smoky multi-layered finish.

At Utah Woolen Mills, we are excited to announce that we are now carrying Di Bianco shoes! Come in and check out the nice selection that we have to offer right downtown Salt Lake City.
