Brioni crafts 100 suits per day, using the finest materials, mainly sourced from the Zegna mills in nearby Biella, Italy. Well over 90 percent of a Brioni suit is handsewn.
Affiliates were shown the hand assembly and sewing of Brioni suits, gaining a unique understanding of the construction and care requirements of this fine menswear brand.
