in Taranto in the 1920s, where Leonardo Vinci had been tailoring unique suits from the age of 6, with the craftsmanship of an experienced tailor.

He became the youngest and most acclaimed tailor of the town in no time.

Like every talented youth, Leonardo had great ambition and longed to broaden his horizons abroad.

AFTER MANY YEARS

the moment of bringing his lifetime dream alive finally came and in 1976 his son Donato founded “Vinci Uomo”.

1980s-90s

IN THIS NEW ACTIVITY

the ideas of industrial custom-tailored and handmade come together, the northern rigour and a touch of sun from the south, always having the greatest attention towards the client and care for the process. Manual skills remain the core of the production with a wide range of luxurious and carefully selected fabrics; in Vinci Uomo’s atelier you can feel the craftsmanship and tradition.
