ORIGINS IN TAILORING

The Minichiello legacy began in Campo Basso, Italy, where a rich history of tailoring and its tools are woven into the very fabric of the city. In 1954, Paul Minichiello brought an independent, daring attitude and a bold vision to Vancouver and would heel the likes of Jim Pattison, Wayne Gretzky, Eric Clapton, and Jack Poole.

CONTINUING A LEGACY

Before Paul Minichiello passed, Dino Minichiello promised his father that he would continue his legacy of excellence, and thus, Cattivo Ragazzo was born. The generational Minichello legacy endures today.

Streetwear is the new luxury

Keeping in lockstep with the future of fashion, Cattivo Ragazzo will soon allow customers to access the brand via more contemporary pathways, namely streetwear. Graphic t-shirts and hoodies are beginning to hold a higher value than that of Italian leather; upstart streetwear brands and storied luxury brands are becoming closer and closer to one another. CR recognizes that casual ready-to-wear is an essential part of any contemporary luxury label — even if personalized suiting is what the brand is anchored in.
