Our Story

Italian Aristocracy

Inspired by the House of Acquaviva. The affluent history of the Dukes of Acquaviva in the historical town of Atri dating back to the 14th century has shaped the Sartoria Dei Duchi of today.  Traditionally the Italian blue-bloods with their ‘old money’ would invest in exquisite clothes, bespoke tailored suits formed from only the finest of wools and the richest silks as reflected in the painter art work of various Italian artists during the Renaissance period such as Tiziano Vecellio’s painting of  Duke Giovanni Francesco Aquaviva.

At Sartoria Dei Duchi we believe that the true elegance of Atri’s former times should never be lost and we pride ourselves on the preservation of its legacy and workmanship. We offer a range of magnificent suits, Hadrianus, Acquaviva and Aragona – a well-crafted line with options for every man and every occasion. From refined slim cashmere suits to sharp cut shirts, we offer complete tailored look handmade in Italy using fairly produced, high-quality wools and fabrics. To view our exclusive range here.

Atri, Italy.

A quaint historic town in the Abruzzo hills of Italy and the breathtaking place that we are lucky enough to call home. Boasting incredible views of history and beauty ranging from original mosaics of the Roman baths to a cycle of 15th-century frescoes by Andrea de Litio dedicated to “Santa Maria Assunta”. It’s hard not to feel creative in Atri, with its tiny signature cobbled streets and striking architecture you can understand why the town has such a long history of traditional men’s tailoring. After growing up in such an inspiring part of the world Piero Pavone decided this would be where Sartoria Dei Duchi would be formed.
