The History of Brioni Suits

A post shared by Brioni (@brioni_official) on

Brioni was founded in Rome, Italy in 1945 by tailor Nazareno Fonticoli and entrepreneur Gaetano Savini. That year, they opened their flagship shop and, to this day, it is still in the same place at Via Barberini 79.

While the Brioni name was popular with discerning men who could recognize a quality suit right away, Brioni really become prominent in 1952 when they staged the world’s first men’s fashion show. Before Brioni in 1952, only women’s clothing makers were staging fashion shows for the general public.

As the company continued to grow, so did their reach around the world. By the 1950s and 60s, men around the globe were wearing Brioni suits. They even spearheaded a ready-to-wear couture program of their own before most manufacturers of high-quality garments started doing the same.

Brioni may be known for their sartorial prowess due to those early men’s fashion shows and trunk shows, but they also have a strong commitment to quality. That’s why they founded their own tailoring school in 1985 and continue to make some of the best men’s suits in the world to this day.

Brioni suits are designed to fit better than other brands, because as any man knows, the fit of the suit is what sets apart the great from the good. Without the appropriate fit, you’re never going to truly look your best.

Most of the modern Brioni suits that you see are going to be a bit slimmer than the traditional cut, but not quite as slim as some of the other high-end makers out there, such as John Varvatos or Tom Ford. Instead, what you’ll get from Brioni men’s suits is a classic cut that’s never really going to go out of style, no matter how the trends change.

That’s one of the big reasons men love Brioni suits. Fashions change, but a timeless, well-crafted suit is never going to go out of style.

However, Brioni men’s suits are so well-built and stylish that you can be sure you’ll be keeping yours for years to come. Brioni men’s suits aren’t a status symbol or a piece of flashy piece of jewelry, they are a fashion investment.

Brioni men’s suits are an investment in quality that you’ll be able to wear year-in and year-out for pretty much the rest of your life. There aren’t many other suits out there that you can say that about.
