In the early twentieth century, Giuseppe Ravazzolo developed an interest in the art of tailoring, and with his mother’s support, he set up a small workshop for making all manner of garments.
As the years passed, both the family and the company grew. In the late 1950s, Giuseppe passed the helm to his sons: first Giancarlo, then Silvano.
Both of them give the business, created by the father, a more modern and industrial imprint.
The management evolved into a more solid enterprise, with a gradually more hierarchical organization structure.
This process of evolution remarkably transformed the company in terms of size, organization, staff and distribution, while the product became increasingly prestigious, carving itself out a niche in the high-end market.
The constant search for perfection, combined with the solidity and values that make Ravazzolo an outstanding force in high-end men’s tailoring.
This same philosophy has given life to the art of making suits and jackets, revealing a passion, which, for Ravazzolo, comes from an almost century-old tradition, passed down from father to son.
Ravazzolo is a worldwide ambassador for Italian style: an iconic and classic style. The Venetian school of tailoring differs from others by strictly following the principles and canons of perfection in garment making, meaning quality, dimensions and fit last unaltered. The result is the fruit of decades of evolution: timeless garments, classic pieces that convey prestige and class.
Nothing is left to chance in the creative process of making a suit.
All the phases involve manual processes to be performed with the utmost care and attention: use of machinery is minimum and the management of the garment making process follows precise guidelines.
A good tailor has sure hands: they are his primary work tools, like the needle, pins, chalk, thread, scissors, measuring tape and a careful eye for detail.
Passion alone is not enough: the tailor must be properly trained in garment making techniques.
