Cesare Attolini: The 82-year-old clothier might have been Naples’ best-kept secret—until last spring, when Attolini’s sons, Massimiliano and Giuseppe, opened their first stateside shop, on New York’s Madison Avenue, complete with a salon for fittings. Attolini’s fall collection includes much of what the brand does best—painstakingly handcrafted blazers (from $4,900) and jackets (from $5,900) done in muted tones and cashmere-blend fabrics. cesareattolini.com.

Isaia: The coral pin on the lapel of an Isaia blazer has come to represent the vibrant yet exacting way Neapolitans use color and pattern in an outfit, whether it’s a jacket or just a pocket square. Isaia’s fall designs may be toned down with soft beiges, camels and grays, but the patterns stay sharp; striped shirts (from $425) are often paired with plaid jackets (from $2,500) and textured wool ties (from $225). isaia.it.

Kiton: This brand’s success is a lesson in diversity, seen in the ever-popular dress shirts (from $550), ties (from $285) and its two-year-old CIPA line, for younger clients. This season’s Kiton and CIPA collections focus on texture, with boiled-wool peak-lapel overcoats (from $7,000) and nubby tweed blazers (from $6,000). kiton.it.
