Sleevehead's Guide to Sicilian Tailors is the first comprehensive, English language guide to Sicilian bespoke tailoring. This reward will support a second, expanded edition of the original guidebook. You will receive a digital copy (e-book) of the updated second edition which will be published later this summer (50% off retail price).
Below is a description of the first edition:
Designed for experienced buyers of custom clothing, this guide provides the definitive reference to the Sicilian tailoring tradition based on a soft, natural shoulder. Largely unknown outside of Italy, Sicilian tailoring is strongly influenced by Neapolitan styling and construction techniques.
The author profiles ten tailors in Sicily's three largest cities of Palermo, Catania and Messina, and provides comprehensive logistical and travel details to plan your own sartorial trip to Sicily.
