The tailoring and fitting is graceful and generally the style achieves a fashion statement without sacrificing quality and style. The continental tailored suit derives from famous Italian mens wear names, like Armani. The quality carries over in women's wear that is practical, yet elegant. They produce top quality shoes and bags, as well. Unless Italian fashion houses forget this tradition, they will continue to be famous for producing clothes for people who care more about style and quality than trends.
