Simeone Napoli brings fine Italian suiting to Scollard Street
Yorkvillers have a new place to go for Italian suits made from fine silk, cashmere and merino wool blends. After hosting a swanky pre-launch trunk show at the Shangri-La last spring, Milanese label Simeone Napoli has set up its first permanent home in Toronto. Shoppers will find racks full of slick head-to-toe ensembles—but much of the menswear on offer is slightly more playful, and meant for mixing and matching (take this Fashion Week outfit, for instance). For fall, it’s all about layered looks: the brand’s double-breasted plaid blazers go great with casual khakis, and cashmere sweaters fit nicely between Egyptian cotton button-downs and lightweight sports jackets—and this wool coat effortlessly tops everything off. Since there’s no distributor, the store’s slightly less expensive than neighbouring Harry Rosen or Holts Men. Made-to-measure blazer-and-trouser combinations start at $1,000, and bespoke tuxes go for $2,500.
Yes, bicycles can be practical pieces of decor (especially for brands championing a European lifestyle).
