The golden scissors of tailoring

  • • Gaetano is among the top five greatest tailors in the world
  • • 25 tailors, seamstresses and finishers work in his atelier
  • • It takes between 70 and 90 hours to make a handmade suit

The name of Maestro Gaetano Aloisio is synonymous with the most authentic and sophisticated excellence in craftsmanship. At the age of 11, he started his training in his native Calabria, before moving to Milan to attend the best tailoring schools. In 1984 he began working in one of the most important tailor's shops in Rome, and two years later, at the age of only 22, he was awarded the prestigious Forbici d'Oro (Golden Scissors) award. In 1991, he opened his first shop in the Italian capital. Today his atelier is the reference point for those who love to express their personality through the highest quality clothes, in which every detail is created by hand respecting the best traditions of Italian tailoring.
