Trussini VP Derek Schacker with model

The newly modernized softer shoulder Trussini collection features 55 fashion styles in stock for fall 2020, opening at $1,395 for a 250 gram super 110s fine wool suit with luxury details (pic stitched sleeve vent, hand-stitched armhole, and custom lining). The entire in-stock program is now featured on the Trussini website without prices; the site directs customers to their closest store for purchase. Product ships the same day or the following.

“We take the risk so stores don’t have to,” explains Derek Schacker, vice president of Trussini. Other info on this luxury suit brand: Sizes range from 48 short to 62 long; 30-40 percent of the business is in trim-fit. Sportcoats retail from $1,050 to $1,295; suits from $1,395 to $1,695. Made-to-measure is about 30 percent of the business and opens at $1695.

Originally brought to the States by Kent Gushner at Boyds who had tremendous success with the collection in his own store, some buyers were at first skeptical about supporting a retailer. They’ve since come to understand that it takes a retailer who specializes in fine Italian clothing to truly understand what will sell in America.

Trussini is now growing in some of the top stores in the country, whose merchants appreciate its exceptional quality, modern styling, and intrinsic value. For more info, email derek.schacker@trussini.com.
