We created Sartoria Marconi Bononia to help men around the world find blazers they feel confident and comfortable in, regardless of everyday's new trends.

We have always been fascinated with stories of friends opening their grandfather's wardrobes to find gorgeous blazers that felt sophisticated, bold, yet so elegantly discreet so we have decided to design a line of blazers with that in mind.

Our blazers are created to help every man find a way to express their uniqueness by wrapping them around fine Italian wardrobe pieces. What we offer are colourful, timeless, patterned blazers that can be worn from day-to-day activities up to special events.

We are happy to see you wear your navy blue or smoke gray blazers and we want to make you happier with our blazers. We want our customers to feel distinctive, confident and pampered all throughout the day. We also want to provide exclusivity so all our blazers will be released every 2 months in very limited quantities.

After traveling across the whole country of Italy to scout hidden small shops that could make our vision translate into reality, we were able to find a small network of suppliers that share our passion and infuse their work with attention to details and high quality. Our blazers are made in an artisanal shop in the heart of Tuscany.

Italian fabrics, Italian hands, Italian design, Italian style and personality. These are the elements we offer to ensure impeccable products.

Our logo was inspired by Italian's elegant restaurants and hotels circa 1950s and is meant to suggest the lifestyle and luxury of dolcevita with a touch of contemporary minimalism.

With your support we will be able to fill our first orders and select the fabrics for our next releases, in time for the Holiday season.

Our blazers are offered in standard sizes 36/38/40/42/44 and you can choose whether you prefer single-breasted or double-breasted. All our blazers feature an unstructured and semi-lined design for a modern look.  We usually like single-breasted with patch pockets and double-breasted with flap pockets (and a ticket pocket), but we might mix and match. All buttonholes are functional. Fabrics will usually be 100% Virgin Wool but we plan to have some cashmere, silk and/or linen blends in the future.

Below you can find the measurements both in US and EU sizes

Risks and challenges

We have been working with fashion for quite some time, one of us owning a haberdashery, another one working as a management consultant in the fashion industry and teaching college students how to start companies.

We have all the right relationships in place and our partners are ready to start as soon as we reach our funding goal. One of us is based in Italy to oversee production while the rest of the team oversees all business operations from the Chicago headquarter.

We have a conservative December delivery date but we (including our partners) are all committed to do our best to get you your shipments ahead of time. Our partners have extensive experience with luxury fashion brands and are able to handle larger orders (we really hope to trouble them with large orders!)
