SPOTLIGHT | PAL ZILERIJune 22nd, 2017
Loyal to their cultural roots and contemporary vision, Pal Zileri continues to expand their global presence in the world of tailored clothing.
Gianfranco Barizza and Argonne Miola founded Forall Confeziona SPA in 1970 with ambitious plans to 'democratize tailoring' for all. In the early 1980s, the two Italian entrepreneurs decided to create the Pal Zileri brand to position their company in the luxury menswear market. The line is built with Italian tradition and innovation regarding design, fit, and material.
Pal Zileri underwent changes in 2014 when the Mayhoola Group of Qatar acquired a stake in the Italian firm. In 2016, Mayhoola bought the remaining shares, gaining full control of the company and appointing a new CEO, Giovanni Mannuci. In line with Mayhoola's deep commitment and long-term focus, Pal Zileri aims to broaden its horizons, consolidating its global presence and expanding its retail network worldwide.
The brand has evolved but has never let go of its roots. Today, the line is still committed to excellent tailoring and contemporary creativity. Each garment is produced in Italy—either locally in the Quinto Vicentino Plant—or by a network of Italian Craftsmen selected for their experience and skill. An average of 180 manufacturing steps required for every jacket and up to 1000 fabrics are sourced for each collection.
Ever since launching the line at The Helm in summer of 2015, we have fallen in love with the brand and its commitment to turn ideas into well-crafted pieces. Their careful consideration with building an experience around their product makes our job easy since every client walks away with more than just a garment. Our custom tailoring services allow each customer to express their sense of individuality and uniqueness - cementing themselves as a part of the tradition.
