Precisely because of these characteristics, the “Capri” jacket was preferred by wealthy people, who wore it on their “island” vacations. These qualities made the “Capri” jacket a wealthy people’s absolute must-have when spending time on the famous island.
This deconstructed version of a classic was therefore called “A giacchett’ e’ Capri”, Capri’s jacket. Years later, Sicignano tailoring company decided to start a project based on that old paper pattern, after adapting it to current trends.
After much effort and perseverance, a modern interpretation of the jacket,
which today we know as GiCapri, was born.
In 1989, Sartoria Sicignano, now owner of the well-known GiCapri brand, was founded. Heirs to the prestigious Neapolitan sartorial tradition, they soon became a reference point for the most famous Italian designers, who keep entrusting them with the manufacturing of their clothes.
In little more than twenty years, the company has grown to a staff of over eighty people, and now sells in Russia, China, Japan, the United States, Canada and Australia.
Pasquale Sicignano, who has always been at the top of the company, understood from the beginning the importance of hiring talented and experienced tailors and craftsmen for the creation of his custom-made garments.
By continually investing in quality, product care and research, he and his company have perfected what is now known as “the Capri System” – his innovative tailoring method applied to the famous GiCapri jacket
