FrontRunners: A Super Fine Find

  • William Kissel

Italian clothing maker Corneliani (800.222.9477, www.corneliani.com) recently obtained a small cache of Super 210 fabric woven from wool fiber measuring an almost microscopic 12.9 microns. The supply is enough for Corneliani to produce only 630 custom and completely handmade suits, each priced at about $10,000. “We established a little section in our factory just to accommodate this very special production,” says Roger Cohen, Corneliani’s U.S. president. Although the fabric is extremely delicate, the suits will be fully lined so that they will be durable and hold their shape. As a finishing, personal touch, Corneliani will embroider your name on the inside chest pocket.
