The three key ingredients of Neapolitan ice cream: chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. The three key ingredients of Neapolitan suiting: soft shoulders, high armholes, and a casual drape. Earlier this month, Neapolitan label Cesare Attolini opened at 67th and Madison, making men's dressing on the Upper East Side that much sweeter.
The brand was founded in the 1930s and became famous for dressing men like Clark Gable and Sean Connery. Up until now, it hasn't had a public storefront in New York; just a private Fifth Avenue showroom. The new space takes up 2,500 square feet and stocks plenty of ready-to-wear, but the showpiece might be the second floor atelier, where men can get custom suits starting at $5,500.
