Update: Nedo Bellucci Napoli

I wrote last year about my experience chatting with Nedo Bellucci who is based in New York City. As far as I know, Nedo is the only purveyor of custom Neapolitan-style suits and shirts who is actually based in the United States. There are of course visiting tailors as I described in my earlier blog entry. But for the most part, those who are partial to the soft-shouldered Neapolitan cut need to travel to Naples.

Unless of course you travel to NYC or Nedo travels to you. He is in fact launching his first travel itinerary to Atlanta (from February 15th to 19th) and Florida (from February 19th to 27th). I also believe he is offering a promotion on shirts (regularly $225 and up) and suits (regularly $3,000 and up). For more info, contact him at or by phone at 212.810.9536.

Additionally, I do have some photos of a Bellucci suit and shirt I can share:

Do you have an address, URL, or contact information for anyone wanting to follow in your footsetsps and commission one of his bespoke suits?

I mentioned Nedo's phone and email information in my blog post. The store address is 45 W 57th St, New York, NY 10019.

Very interesting. So, if I understand correctly, Nedo measures clients in the U.S., and then the garments are actually made in Naples? I can't imagine how expensive it would be to do the work in the New York.

The handsewing on the shirt looks really nice. Blows away the typical Borrelli shirt.

Yes, that is correct mfan. Nedo does work with a local NY tailor for minor tailoring changes but the cutting and sewing are done in Naples.

I visited the store soon after reading about it on Sleevehead. I purchased a suit. The suit fit perfectly and looks exquisite. It feels light very comfortable. The service was very good. I am having two shirts made now.
