Born in Biella on 25 September 1930 from a family of textile industrialists, he inherited the business when his father died when he was only twenty. Thus interrupted his studies in Philosophy and Journalism, to rediscover himself immediately suited to style and fashion of the highest level. Following the family tradition, he invests heavily over the years in research and development of materials, adding a particular attention to design with taste and highly personal insights. In short, to be precise since 1957, he obtained worldwide resonance with the presentation of his first line of clothing, Hitman, in Milan. In 1962 he founded the brand "Flying Cross" with Osvaldo Testa, the first "Designer Line" to be added to the Hitman line. In 1967 he opened the first Cerruti 1881 boutique at Place de la Madeleine in Paris.
In the seventies he created the first deconstructed jacket. Establishes licensing agreements in Japan and the US in order to increase brand visibility internationally and to maintain competitive prices in multiple markets, proving to possess, in addition to artistic abilities, a strong entrepreneurial vocation to the global market. In these years the women's line is also born, which twenty years later will represent 20% of the company's total turnover. In 1975 Hitman began producing and distributing knitwear, shirts and the casual line: Cerruti 1881 Brothers.
Eventually, a compromise was developed: a half canvas suit.
A half canvased suit uses a sewn in canvas piece in the chest and the lapel of the jacket, and is fused on the bottom part of the jacket. This allows you to have the canvas at the most important part of the suit, and keeps the price down by having less handwork.
If you want to maximize your value, a half-canvassed suit jacket is the way to go
The full canvas suit meets every demand of the modern man’s lifestyle. In development, prototypes are placed in climatic compartments that mimic different weather conditions, ensuring the tailoring always looks its best.
A full-canvassed suit jacket is one that is constructed with canvas fabric spanning the entire inside front panels and lapels of the jacket. As a middle structural layer, the canvas is hand stitched to the fabric rather loosely (i.e., a “floating” canvas), so the garment can move with you. What results is a suit that drapes much more naturally, conforms to the body and looks much better, especially when you’re making moves…like a boss.
Full-canvassed jackets are the most labor and time intensive, require a higher level of skill to make, and thus, tend to be pricier. In return for the premium paid, you get a suit that not only molds to you, but will last the longest.
