Bespoke and Custom Made to Measure Suits
Our Speciality is Neapolitan tailored clothing. A distinctive style of tailoring that hails from Naples, Italy.
Neapolitan Tailoring is centered around COMFORT.
Ability to Breathe
A Neapolitan jacket allows for better airflow. Hold one up to the light and you can see through it. Unlined, no shoulder padding, and option for full canvas or no canvas (lightest weight).
Due to the unstructured nature of the jackets, one could curl up on a pillow and take a snooze with one on. Neapolitan tailoring can be far less restrictive and bulky than the typical American or British suiting you're used to.
We produce garments for both men and women and offer both Bespoke and Made to Measure options.
HOW WE MAKE THEM:
We offer our Neapolitan Tailoring 2 ways- Bespoke and Made To Measure (Custom)
Below is a brief comparison between the two options.
| Consultation: Measurements, Fabric & Design Selection ( Options are unlimited and often involve a conceptual sketch for various designs
Sizing: There is no size- your own pattern is created based on whatever your measurements are
Fittings: 3 Minimum
1st Fitting(BASTED): A shell of a garment is made, held together by loose white stitches. We can pull the entire thing apart and make adjustments right on your body.
2nd Fitting (FORWARD): You are fitted again, this time with some pockets and parts of the garment added. Further adjustments are made and you can decide on final details of your garment such as stitching, buttons, etc if you haven’t already.
3rd Fitting( FINAL): You are fitted in your completed garment. All of the details have been added, and it is ready to take home if no further adjustments are required.
Timeframe Start to Finish: 3-5 months ( less time after your first bespoke garment is made and we have your pattern.
Entirely sewn by hand
MADE TO MEASURE (CUSTOM)
| Consultation: Measurements, Fabric & Design Selection ( Things are customizable, but limited to certain types of designs. You can customize things like type of pockets, # of buttons, etc.
Sizing: Basic size ranges(i.e 38R, 42L, etc) We use a pattern based on whatever size you are closest to, and alter it based on your measurements

ABOUT THE BRAND
The Brand : What We Stand For
X of Pentacles (pronounced "Ten of Pentacles") - named after the Tarot card that represents wealth and long term success- A sense of Fulfillment in having one of the most valuable things one can possess-Individuality.
In a world where everything is mass produced and everyone resembles one another...we strive to create for those who value superior quality but MUST be themselves. The only box we can be put in is our packaging :)
Working directly with fabric mills used by luxury fashion houses- we provide them with our own art prints instead of recycling the same patterns everyone else uses.
We also support Italian craftsmanship and tailoring trades. In our efforts to partner with historic bespoke tailors to produce our garments and uphold the phenomenon that is Neapolitan Tailoring. Specific to Naples, Italy - with it's own style of visually distinctive characteristics that can be easily spotted among a crowd of suits. An industry already facing it's mortality- with most tailors well into their late 60s+ and in great need of a new generation to carry on the tradition of things still made by HAND. The old school way. We like old school shit- it has soul, slight imperfections, it feels human. We love tradition and having the best of the best when it comes to quality- but without the ostentation that tends to accompany luxury goods.
Sustainable by Nature
Bespoke tailoring has historically been a sector of "sustainable fashion", before the term was coined. Utilizing natural materials and creating garments meant to last a lifetime, rather than a few seasons. We continue that mission, emphasizing quality over quantity. Our accessories follow the same route, only releasing new collections once the previous have sold out- thus reducing our carbon footprint.
We promise to always go out of our way to be thoughtful, provide personal service, and deliver you something that is truly ONE OF A KIND.
Pricing: Made to Measure starts at $3600
Bespoke starts at $4500
Appointments available for Richmond, VA & Charlottesville 7 Days A Week
