In 2005 Giorgio Armani launched a very special haute-couture collection for women called Prive. For almost two years, the men have waited their turn, and now the time has come: Armani just launched his newest specialty for men, dubbed Fatto a Mano su Misura, or "handmade to measure" in boring old English.
The new line offers two different style options for suit jackets and blazers, which may sound like slim pickings until you hear about the endless array of choices regarding fabrics, colors, buttons, pockets, and other details. Giorgio himself is very excited about this handsome collection, recently telling Time magazine: "My intention is to create a different kind of excellence, one that reflects my own personal aesthetic of bringing the traditional and the modern together while respecting the craft the Savile Row has for so long made its own."
Fatto a Mano su Misura first launched in London and Milan and will now be available in 13 Armani boutiques worldwide, including shops in New York and Los Angeles. Suit prices range from $2,500 to $10,000.
