The tailor’s shop whose power-dressing transcended the “Iron Curtain” between USA and USSR with its scissors.
A 70-year history
Dress up classy men around the world. This is the vision of an italian tailoring Atelier that has remained faithful to the craftsmanship of unforgettable clothes since 1951.
Angelo Litrico, eldest of 12 children of a poor Sicilian fisherman, moves to Rome to seek his fortune.
He buys the tailor shop that had hired him, in Via Sicilia 51 and begins his ascent to success.
Angelo Litrico manages to attract the attention of Vittorio Gassman and Rossano Brazzi who orders him eight suits.

At the UN General Assembly Nikita Khrushchev dressed in Litrico slams Litrico’s shoe during a speech, and becomes a symbol of style.
Angelo Litrico dresses the great leaders: John F. Kennedy, Juan Perón, Tito, Dwight D. Eisenhower, King Hussein of Jordan, and many others.
The leadership of Sartoria Litrico passes from Angelo to Franco and Giusi, younger siblings of the founder. And then, to Luca, Franco’s son, who continues to lead the shop today.
Under the guidance of Luca Litrico, the Maison continues to bring the great Italian tailoring to home all over the world.
The great leaders
From Catania to Rome: Angelo Litrico was one of the first Italian stylists. A man of great inventiveness and creativity, able to conquer everyone, from the most important actors of the time such as Rossano Brazzi and Vittorio Gassman, to the great world leaders such as Nikita Khrushchev, of whom he took care of the entire wardrobe, John F. Kennedy, Juan Perón, Tito, Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The Litrico Man
Sartoria Litrico’s main principle of constantly pursuing esthetical perfection aims to dignify the men wearing its clothes. The first thing done by a good tailor is getting to know the person in front of him, analysing his strengths, weaknesses, features and personality. Real elegance is given by a timeless suit, enhancing the person wearing it.
