DeCaro Sartoria Custom Tailors and Shirtmakers - Seattle
29 Mar 11 1
You can buy a suit anywhere. We all have them. Something that is just a little bit too long in the sleeve or too roomy in the middle. Gian DeCaro of DeCaro Sartoria Custom Tailors in Seattle wipes his nose with suits like these. A second generation tailor, Gian might seem abrasive or even dismissive to some. To his clients, some of the top executives at almost every major company you have ever heard of as well as elite athletes in baseball, football and basketball, don't mind. They just stand at the mirror and sip an espresso or a single-malt scotch and watch as Gian creates a bespoke work of art from fine silks, wools and cottons from Italy and Britain. These are suits and garments that make a statement. They are so fine, "you don't even need a woman," as Gian likes to say. Billy couldn't afford a suit, but he did get some advice from Gian on taking his own suit to the next level with a touch of color.
