WHO IS LUCA RUBINACCI?
First of all I am a lover of beauty, lucky because I am part of a generation of tailors: my grandfather was the forefather of Neapolitan tailoring, my father handed down what my grandfather invented without knowing, because my grandfather sowed a jacket for the first time without knowing that that jacket would be called a Neapolitan jacket. My father has made a small Neapolitan tailor shop an Italian excellence, famous for a niche market of customers in the world. Then there is me, that went to work there in 2000 and I tried to pass on this craftsmanship to the new generation, with the means of the new generation to make our tailoring even more famous and desired all over the world.
HOW MANY YEARS DO YOU HAVE AND WHAT DO YOU DO IN SPECIFICALLY?
I am 36 years old and, a little bit like in all the family businesses, I take care of everything; mainly I deal with customer service. Any customer approaching the tailor can build a relationship only with one family member: With Luca, with my father Mariano or with my sister Chiara, who runs the London store. I also take care of the “ready”, a reality for those who still can not face tailors.
