Born out of the crossbreeding of the glorious Italian sartorial tradition with the exquisite taste of British fabrics of the highest quality, the Draper is our most sophisticated style, epitomizing dapperness at its best. This season, the Draper is back in a special edition made with superb fabrics exclusively woven by Vitale Barberis Canonico.
The Draper is named after the old-time profession of the fabric merchant, which is also a reference to our own roots: back in the 1950s, before making trousers, our company used to specialize in selling superb cloths. Leveraging PT’s heritage and knowledge in terms of textiles, every season we select the finest British-style fabrics and pair them with our most gentlemanly fits and accurate details. This year, we partnered with the legendary woolen mill Vitale Barberis Canonico, a synonym for masculine elegance and made-in-Italy fabrics, to create a special collection of Draper featuring Vitale Barberis Canonico’s outstanding wools. These beautiful firm-hand materials lend themselves to some pretty unique cuts: high-waist fits, extended waistbands, long closures and perfectly engineered pleats. This season, the range includes the timeless houndstooth, check and overcheck patterns, along with classic nuances such as dark grey and burgundy.
