A Taste of Italy

Since launching his signature clothing house in Florence, Italy, in 1988, Michele Negri’s stylish, colorful yet classically tailored fashions have had a loyal American following. After 20 years in business, Negri has finally opened his first U.S. boutique on Madison Avenue in New York to serve his American patrons. The shop features Negri’s signature Neapolitan-cut suits with distinctive stitch work and additional ticket pocket similar to those cut on Savile Row. “My father always had an affection for Neapolitan tailoring, especially from brands like Kiton and Isaia,” says Gian Luigi Negri, Negri’s son with wife and business partner Patrizia Beltrami, of the Beltrami shoe family. Though Negri’s designs go beyond the traditional says his son, who runs the U.S. business: His newest Italian-made blazers are un-constructed and cut razor thin.
