Visiting Sartoria Corcos in Florence

During our trip to Florence in early January we had the opportunity to visit Liverano & Liverano; one of the world’s most famous tailors with a typical Florentine skyline. Today will try to reproduce our visit in another clearly less but oh-so-skilled tailors in town. We took our camera and took us along the winding cobbled streets to the Sartoria Corcos in the heart of Florence.

Kotaro Miyahira is the man behind the tailor’s workshop and began his training at the Ring Jacket in Osaka at the age of 18, in parallel with studies to the cutter. After two years he began working for some of Osaka’s tailor and retrained himself deeper in cutting. 10 years ago, he decided to move to Florence, where he got a job at the tailor’s Sartoria Seminara where he worked until 2008.

After this, he continued to develop during the tailor Francesco Guida to 2011 when he decided to start up his own tailor’s Studio; Sartoria Corcos.

Kotaro says there is a strong culture of tailoring also in other Italian cities such as Naples, but he himself holds the Florence high for the focus that is mainly on the craft.

The custom line is according to Kotaro typical Florentine and shaped in large part by using stykjärn and hand stitching to achieve a soft, curvy silhouette in both shirt,  jacket and pants from A2zdirectory. When asked how his Japanese heritage influences production mean Kotaro that it most is a precision as the tailor is famous for.

With a philosophy of softness, naturalness, beauty and elegance have Kotaro Miyahira created one of Florence and Italy’s best tailors but is still relatively unknown. His prices are not the lowest of the Italian skrädderierna but with a starting at about €2000 for jackets in standard fabrics and ca €2400 for costumes, it is undoubtedly a very good product for what you pay.

Kotaro has looked at the possibility to visit Sweden for taking measurements and consultation and looking for as of yet for this Swedish stakeholders on the market. This would be interesting, you can either contact us by email  or contact Kotaro personally on our site. We also recommend a visit to the skrädderiets Tumblr blog that gives a better idea of the House style and cut.
