THE WHITE SHIRT
It’s a must have… a shirt that can be worn at any event or occasion.
The white shirt is essential to the dinner suit and compliments all other colours of suit. The white shirt can be worn with any colour tie and shoe. The collar of the white speaks the suits; usually a wing tip will be accessorised with a bow tie for dinner suit or any formal wear. English and Italian spread collars are mainly worn with business attire. Other design details to the white shirt can be discussed with the tailor to create a shirt that’s exclusively made for you.

Jackets / Blazers
One of the most important pieces in your wardrobe…
The jacket is a versatile piece of outerwear, cut and styled well for both formal and leisure appearances. Originally cut in wool and tweed, today the jacket can be tailored in any weight of fabric to create that dapper look.
The jacket on its own is never totally formal, hence, created in stronger colours, designs and weaves that suits. We boast of the largest selection of fabrics for jackets / blazers – year round and seasonal.
Coats were designed with one purpose in mind – to keep you warm.
Coats come in two main categories – heavy and formal (Chesterfields, Mantles) or light and informal (Covert, Crombie, Dust Coats). Piacenza is known for its wide selection of heavy weights – Alashan Cashmere, Vicuna, Baby Llama, Baby Camelhair, virgin wool.
We also use fabrics from the Drapers Salt and Pepper bunch.
