The attention to the smallest detail follows the entire manufacturing process, from the choice of fabrics to the phase of delivery to the customer, in order to create impeccable models of excellent quality.


Choice of fabrics

After agreeing on the line of the garment and on every detail, the customer chooses the fabric together with the cutter

When taking the measurements, the cutter also notes the customer's physical characteristics, according to a code of absolute discretion.

The cutter draws the dress model corresponding to the chosen model and the customer's measurements on the classic brown wrapping paper. The model, created thanks to an ingenious calculation method and a great sensitivity acquired over years of experience, will be the "scaffolding" of the dress.

Cutting procedure
The cutter traces the outlines of the pattern on the fabric with chalk and begins the hand cut with scissors.

Imastitura first test

The sewing of the dress is entrusted to specialist tailors in each garment. The first seam is temporary and is sewn with white basting thread.

First try
During the fitting, the customer sees the chosen fabric for the first time in the form of a dress. Substantial changes can still be made at this stage.

Second test
After the first fitting, the dress is unstitched and returned to the respective tailors, who sew a second version, making the changes agreed upon during the fitting.

Stitches by hand
To make the dress compliant they are sewn by hand, with countless stitches, inserts in hemp, cotton, cloth or horsehair. In order to speed up this procedure, the inserts in the finished jackets are hot glued, but the final result is very different.

Fabric ironing
While sewing, the tailor irons the fabric several times, moistening it and shaping it with a hot iron. Ironing and padding give the dress its three-dimensional look. The elastic horsehair, in particular, ensures that the folds of the fabric, such as on the chest or on the lapels, last over time.

After measuring and after cutting, another important step is the creation of the eyelets (buttonholes) which are sewn only when the customer is fully satisfied with the suit.

Ironing of the dress
The last to put his hand to the garment is the ironer who gives it the final shape with the iron. This is precisely one of the details that represents the craftsmanship of our laboratory. Old irons weighing over 5kg are used, the most suitable for giving the final look to the dress.

The D'Ambrosio suit, cut to measure, sewn entirely by hand, using the finest fabrics in the world, represents the perfect synthesis between traditional elegance and originality in detail.
