Sardinian Clothing

What today is referred to as Traditional Sardinian Clothing was created in the early twentieth century from imported models which were not part of the so-called Traditional Attire. Men’s jackets are inspired by the elegant hunter’s style or “country gentleman” clothing. Masterfully made by local tailors, ordering “sa ‘este” was a sort of initiation rite for a young man who would finally wear his new velvet suit and officially be accepted as a grown man.
