Small-scale artisan-made Menswear is our passion, and because of this focus we have managed to source some of the best garments and accessories available worldwide. Almost all of which are only available in Australia at Calder Sartoria.

Our approach to Style is easy, comfortable and masculine. We want the Australian man to take pride in what he wears. Knowing that every piece in his wardrobe is made in the right way, by the right people, and looks damn good.

Suits and Shirts: The Process.

The invitation

Book an appointment to visit the Calder Showroom in Melbourne's CBD for a casual chat about your work and lifestyle so we can gauge the type of garment best suited to you - the style, the fit, the fabric colour and composition, durability and weight.

The cloth

We’ll curate a selection of high quality, exclusive fabrics for you to choose from, from only the best English and Italian Mills and Merchants. Your selection of fabrics will be based on Steve Calder's years of experience and will be best suited to you.

The style

Next, we’ll define the cut and fit of the garments we've chosen to achieve the desired form. Being made in Naples, a Calder suit and Vanacore shirt will always carry a certain Neapolitan flair.

The fitting

We’ll take body measurements and get you into a fitting garment to make adjustments based on the type of look and feel we want to achieve. We take into account your posture, body shape and personal style, and will also take some photos of your frame, posture and stance to accompany your measurements we send to our tailors. 

The construction

Your made-to-measure garment will be sent to our Italian artisans based in Naples who will apply their generations of tradition and master workmanship to create your new garment. Patterns are hand-cut, and your garments will be made in line with the traditional methods of the Naples region.

The final touches

After construction and shipping (Approx. 6 weeks for Shirts, and 8 weeks for Suits) your garments will arrive very close to finished. We’ll invite you in to the Showroom to make final adjustments, ensuring the most comfortable fit and correct proportions, then we’ll send it to our expert local tailor for finalisation.

The finished piece

Your tailored garment - crafted specifically for you - returns ready for you to wear.

The Calder style defined

Read more

Traditional Neapolitan Made To Measure Suits and Shirts are our speciality. Understanding this "Calder Style" begins with understanding the romantic, passionate mindset of the Southern Italian man and the Neapolitan way of life. The climate is always warm. The food: fresh. The coffee: dark. And the habits: Ritualistic.

There’s a distinct appreciation in Italy's south for the finer things. One would note the extended lunches with friends and family, and the apparent refusal to live their lives bowing to deadlines. Among the locals living in towns bordering the Mediterranean Sea, there’s a distinct correlation between the ratio of work and play and golden tans.

Passion lies well defined in the love of women, craft, quality time, music and good times.

The Calder Man is confident, and takes pleasure exploring the value in living.
