An eccentric, eclectic individual who, at his Tor di Nona location, mainly produces original ties and bowties based on his own creative design. On account of his flamboyant look (moustache and untidy hair) and his surreal creativity he has been dubbed the “Salvador Dali of the tie”.
His fabric range includes materials from the 20’s right up to the 50’s and 60’s and are used both for his bespoke suits, based on the Neapolitan school of tailoring, and his ties. His favourite fabrics are highly unusual, such as the organic and recyclable ones, with which he is capable of creating any type of garment. The price of a tie in a vintage, 20’s fabric can cost anywhere up to one thousand euros on account of being unique and unrepeatable.
