Raffaele Caruso was a noted Neapolitan master tailor who in 1958 decided to move to the region of Parma, Italy to set up his bespoke tailor shop.
His talent quickly drove luxury brands to ask him to produce their collections as a third-party.
Later, he started producing under his own brand Ma.Co., known since 2007 as Raffaele Caruso and nowadays simply as Caruso.
In 2008, Umberto Angeloni, an authority in the luxury menswear business, took over as CEO before taking control in 2012, enhancing the potential of the company.
Today Caruso is a leader in the production of premium hand made Italian garments.

Founded by a Neapolitan Bespoke Tailor in 1958, Caruso is truly Italian by heritage, by provenance −all its products, which are 100% made in Italy by the company’s 600 skilled seamstresses and master tailors− and by core customer: the Good Italians.
…by definition. Sartorial because its core product is the tailored suit –the foundation of men’s elegance in every latitude and main pillar of their wardrobe− employing only full-canvas construction with hours of hand-made details, and because it manufactures one thousand custom suits, jackets and coats every month.
… that delivers superior value and service. Luxurious because of the unique quality of its materials and processes, providing the best value (quality/price ratio) at the high-end of the range, and because it has only one product line that is aimed at the same élite clientele.
… that constantly evolves its style, materials, and technique. Modern because it reflects the timeless tenets of men’s tailored elegance while, at the same time, constantly experimenting with new shapes, researching and developing new fabrics and accessories, and adapting technological advances to traditional processes.
GOBIGOLD− extra-fine camelhair from the Gobi desert created by Loro Piana exclusively for Caruso: as fine as cashmere but more resistant and affordable. The whole Industry and the international Press are talking about it.
HOUDINI− “the incredible fabric”. The name is inspired by the famous escape artist of the early 20th century who could free himself from any constriction or restraint. As the label says −“No wool will strech more”− an exclusive treatment makes a Super 130s and Super 150s wool extremely stretchable, with a soft hand clear sheen, together with stain and crease resistance.
