Your Tailor for Life

Timeout New York


Bellucci Napoli


Owner and designer Nedo Bellucci honed his craft as a bespoke seamster in his hometown of Naples, Italy. After opening his first custom menswear shop in Midtown East in 2007, he’s moved his operation into three floors of a luxury high-rise building just down the street. The elevator brings customers to the production level, where you’ll pass tailors cutting and sewing on your way to a spiral staircase. One floor up, you'll encounter a fitting room featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden trunks, leather sofas and oversize mirrors. Here, customers can browse roughly 3,000 fabric swatches and trims sourced from Naples, and begin their made-to-order process. The top floor is reserved as a lounge area, with a whiskey bar that serves complimentary drinks, additional seating and an outdoor terrace boasting a view of midtown. Two-piece suits generally range from $3,000 to $5,000, and shirts, including solid and patterned fabrics and contrast-color stitching, are $350–$700. Accessories, such as silk ties ($95–$230), leather bags ($1,200–$2,000) and Talarico wooden-handled umbrellas ($395–$600), which are exclusive to the store, are displayed throughout. You'll have your handmade goods in four to six weeks, following two fittings.
