Cordone1956 general information

Luigi Cordone is the owner of the company Cordone1956. In 1956 the brand was founded by his grand father Luigi Cordone SR. and Luigi Cordone JR. joined the company when he was just 15 years old. He has an incredible eye for sartorial details, passion for bespoke clothing and thinks out of the box with designs and prints. We should not confuse Cordone1956 with other well-known brands from Italy, since it is a small company that has its own factory and workers.

Cordone1956 is a brand that has not (yet) created a name and reputation in the Netherlands. Worldwide it is now a brand that is preferred by many well-dressed men. For example, it now has more followers on social media platforms than Kiton, Luigi Borrelli, Barba Napoli etc. Cordone1956 products are made with machine or by hand.

We only offer the shirts that are handmade. Some examples of the handmade steps are pleated shoulders, handfinished buttonholes, shoulder seam, front placket and the “travettini”. The fit of a Cordone1956 shirt is similar to the fit of a Barba Napoli shirt. The shirts do have a beautiful collar, which falls nicely under the rever of a jacket. Therefore, it is also ideally suited to wear a shirt without a tie. The Cordone1956 shirts are made of high quality fabrics, including Thomas Mason and Albini.
