In the 1930s, Alfredo Corneliani established a craft company making raincoats and overcoats. By 1959, his sons Claudio and Carlalberto were able to set up Corneliani, a sizeable and respected company made possible by the years of expert craftsmanship exhibited by the family. Now in the hands of the third generation, Corneliani remains committed to quality.

Each item is still crafted by experts who are rigorously trained to meet the standards that keep the brand at the forefront of luxury Italian menswear. Alongside high-end ready-to-wear clothing and accessories, Corneliani offers an excellent made-to-measure service which is available in store. Combining skills that have been passed down through the generations, and the benefits of the latest technologies, Corneliani can craft the perfect suit for each customer.
