The success of Caliendo tailoring comes from the founder’s experience. In fact, at the age of 6, Biagio Caliendo began his path of knowledge and training with the master tailors of Casalnuovo, his native town and a real academy for all those who aspired to the title of Master Tailor.
His childhood was full of sacrifices in a family that was not very comfortable but did not want Biagio to give up his studies. So as a child he had to divide himself between two activities: school, attending classrooms and having to deal with peers, and the professional one by learning bespoke tailoring from the most important masters tailors of the time.
Since then, however, it has always been a crescendo: the first step was the relocation from Casalnuovo to Naples, a city that was all a ferment of elegant fashions that blended with the style and taste of Neapolitan tailors; then the need to work independently for their customers and handing down the secrets and rules of the style and good taste of tailoring. This is how Sartoria Caliendo was born in February 1961, in the Chiaia district and precisely in via Cappella Vecchia, a stone’s throw from Piazza dei Martiri, in what can be considered the real city lounge.
