D.G. – Bologna

I called you after seeing the suit you made for Massimo, my brother-in-law: he wore during the celebrations for the 70th anniversary of foundation of his foundry (did you read the news article on the local newspaper?). Many people admired his perfect and elegant suit during the night, and I simply had to ask who had manufactured so beautiful a suit. And here I am!”

Mr Maurizio, the owner of the masks shop, gave me your address telling me he would not renounce for anything in the world to wear one of your tailored suits. So I would like to fix a meeting as well…”

At the beginning I was a little bit dubious… I could not imagine the finished suit. Now I’m wearing it and I know I did well in trusting you, Dario: you really advised me nicely. Thank you.”

M.S., Caldonazzo – (Trento)

Dear Mr Zanella, please find here enclosed an extract from our local newspaper: you will surely appreciate it since it tells about the suits you made for me… – ROVERETO, LOCAL PRESS REPORT- REGARDING OUTFIT MR B. IS MORE THAN A MATCH FOR THE OTHERS. Ten nominees, all wearing dark coloured suits, blue or grey… Only B.B. distinguishes himself wearing warm, brownish jacket and trousers – English country style- which fit perfectly. So, with regard to elegance, he is more than a match for the others.”

Dario, you will never believe me! Last week I was walking in Jermyn Street, London, when a fine gentleman in his sixties approached me to ask where I had got my wonderful red trousers. –At my Italian tailor’s- I replied. He greatly admired them and got along… I was delighted!”
