A Snip of the Scissors
Portrait of Gaetano Aloisio
A bespoke suit by Gaetano Aloisio, Calabrian by birth and Roman by adoption, can take up to 70 hours to make. A formal style, never eccentric or ostentatious, boasting cuts that, though supremely elegant and sober, are nevertheless always extremely comfortable.
Aged just 22, he won the Golden Scissors, a prestigious award given by the Accademia Nazionale dei Sartori which, each year, is awarded to the artisan tailor who best expresses style, ability, creative flair and the formal severity of bespoke tailoring. Though his workshop is Rome-based, his customers are scattered throughout the world: Japanese, American, Arabs and Europeans who demand the utmost in tailoring and who often expect Aloiso to travel in order to reach them wherever they find themselves in the world.
Gaetano Aloisio is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.
