The Bespoke Dudes is the young voice of Italian bespoke tailoring and craftsmanship. The blog was founded in 2012 by Fabio Attanasio, magazine contributor for Italian and foreign magazines, such as GQ Italy, Fashion Illustrated, Arbiter, Vedomosti and RBC Daily. Fabio was born in Napoli, the cradle of men's tailoring and graduated from Bocconi Law School in Milan. During the college years, he spent hours in the workshops along with tailors from all over the country, moved by an earnest passion for the industry. In 2012 he decided to follow his passion and launched his blog to be informed and inform his readers about this art. He would visit sartorie in the biggest Italian cities in order to learn the differences among the Milanese jacket, the Neapolitan or the Florentine and so on.
Today The Bespoke Dudes has become a reference point on the web for tens of thousands of readers from all over the world who read his articles to discover new tailors and artisans.
