Canadian Bespoke suits by Antonacci Suits
At Antonacci, they believe that nothing distinguishes one more than the elegance of a fine, custom-fitted, handmade suit. They take pride in the tailor's craft, with a passion for impeccable quality in every single detail. From the finest fabrics and threads to old-world artistry and craftsmanship, they are meticulous about creating garments of the highest standards, and they understand the secrets of the perfect fit.
It takes the tailors up to twenty hours to produce one handmade suit, with strict quality control at every stage. There is no compromise, no cutting corners. Only a dedication to our craft and to creating the finest handmade garments to suit the individuality of every customer.
As Designer, Hector Macaluso is the gentleman responsible for creating Antonacci's collection of pattern blocks. It's a labour of love: Hector creates patterns, grades each style with the help of digital technology, then tests the pattern, adjusts, finalizes for each custom suit. Each client is specific. To make the chosen pattern fit perfectly he wants to know if your posture is open or closed, are you stooped or do you stand erect, are your shoulders square or sloped? All these tiny adjustments make the garment 'tailored' to the individual."
Hector's attention to quality and detail throughout a suit's fabrication is the same as the care taken in his father's shop back in Sicily. With the same sensibility he embraces new technology: highly precise, computer controlled cutting techniques, software to perfectly align patterns between the parts, digital manipulation of pattern blocks. "I feel lucky," he says, "that I've experienced this transition in my career."
