An Italian Sartorial Jacket made in Europe

With the help and the passion of MR Alberto Caruso (Ex-CEO of MACO in SORAGNA) we built this new sartorial line. Starting with the layout and the equipement used, we strictly follow the Italian way of manufacturing a Traditional Jacket. These hand-made finishes are included as a standard in our production:

  • collar attachment,
  • sleeve lining finishing,
  • jacket bottom and sleeve vents finishing.
We also provide as an option, hand-made buttonholes.

Added Value well ahead of production

Guided by freelance designers, working with the latest fabrics, fits and trends, Formens accompanies its clients right from the conception phase of their products and collections.

Thanks to our sourcing team we are able to find everything our clients need regarding fabrics, trims and different constructions for suits , jackets , trousers and casual chic products .

The pattern is essential for the fit and the quality of the suit

Formens benefits from the know-how of well renowned italian specialists which have developped patterns with a perfect fit .

The different suit cuts, inspired by Italian and English styles, can be modifed to receive any type of lapels, pockets etc .

When it comes to the casual chic styles, we can start the developpment process from a sketch made by you, a picture, a technical file or even a sample. We will allways offer the best ideas and solutions regarding the patterns or the construction, like the most appropriate fusing in order to ensure the best fit of the garment.
