G.abo Sport Coats & Tailored Jackets
In 2012, cousins Giuseppe Nicotera and Gianfranco Altobelli took over the family tailoring business originally founded by their grandfather. Infusing classic style-inspirations with modern designs and fits, the up-and-coming Neapolitan tailoring house G.abo combines the best of old and new. Their jackets speak for their success.
A few years back, Giuseppe and Gianfranco showed us a collection of sport coats with a truly amazing fit. "The Napoli," as they called it, is an exceptional jacket model designed personally by G.abo's master pattern maker. The look is a nicely balanced interpretation of classic Neapolitan style with a contemporary tailoring-house edge, and the jacket is one of minimal structure with hand stitching where most needed. The most distinctive success of this line is its fit—it is simply phenomenal, and reminds me of a bespoke double-breasted blazer I once had made in London. Trim, with an ease of movement that only comes from a master pattern maker, G.abo’s outstanding cut continually amazes.
