beHouse 2015: Sciamàt

The story of a "lay tailor" who was inspired by great revolutionaries
in men’s clothing: The Duke of Windsor and Gianni Agnelli

Sciamàt was founded in 2002 thanks to the enthusiasm of its founder, designer and “lay tailor” (as he likes to be called) Valentino Ricci, who was inspired by great revolutionaries in men’s clothing, such as the Duke of Windsor and Gianni Agnelli.

Assisted by partners Nicola Ricci, Giuseppe Buquicchio and Silvana Di Nunzio, Mr. Ricci immediately succeeded in interpreting the mission he had in mind: drawing inspiration from the past to reveal today’s man and his needs, in a style that does not develop into something from the “technological age”, but instead focuses on the need for contemporary fashion that binds us to the past, its tradition and its culture.

Through a selection of both vintage and contemporary fabrics produced by fine companies such as Holland & Sherry, Fintes, Scabal, Carnet, Drapers and Loro Piana, Sciamàt demonstrates the absolute attention paid to the customer’s wishes – from first fitting to final delivery – thus enabling him to enjoy the incomparable charm of a bespoken suit that is hand-crafted, stitch by stitch.

In addition to shapes and proportions, another important element that distinguishes the company’s work is the cut, which creates a jacket that is virtually “sewn onto” the body of the wearer.  It is the type of jacket that characterized menswear from around 1880 until 1920.

You can consistently find it at the Pitti Immagine Uomo international menswear fair in Florence every January and June, and at finer retail outlets and exclusive boutiques around the world, both in Europe and Asia: Lansmere and Shinsegae (Korea), Isetan, B-Brook, United Arrows (Japan), Frans Boone and Hans Van Dijk (The Netherlands) and Bespoke Athens (Greece).
