Choose Your Mistletoe: Peter Nappi Holiday Gift Guide 2014


We made the list and checked it twice…and guess what? You’re nice. For the Nice Lists you’re making and the Nice Lists you’re undoubtedly on, we present the Peter Nappi Guido al Regalo 2014, featuring Arturo, Luca High and Low, Ennio, and Armo. We design all our pieces to be loved for life, but just to add an extra touch of gift guide mistletoe, we’ve introduced special holiday pricing on two of our most-purchased-as-a-gift styles: the Lynna Ballet Flat at $149 (originally $329) and the Romeo Lace-Up Wedge at $249 (originally $550). International Shipping is available to more than 60 countries worldwide–and, as always, it’s free within the US.

Ti voglio bene.

smallbatch_hollyThe good people of Small Batch Presents came by the Studio this month to film a profile of Peter Nappi and one of our favorite Nashville artists, Holly Williams. Molto bello!

Ti voglio bene.

Instagram Winter Hashtag Sweepstakes


We love seeing where our leather goes once it walks out the door. Which sidewalks those boots are hitting, what you’re wearing with that jacket, what city that duffel is touring. Through your posts, we see our boots at the beach and onstage; in Berlin, LA, London, and even back in Italy.

So we’ve decided to do more than just enjoy your photos: from now through December 14th, we’ll be entering everyone who tags us on Instagram with #peternappi and @peternappi in a sweepstakes drawing for a free pair of boots or shoes of their choice. No Peter Nappi in your wardrobe yet? Don’t worry–any images of your visits to the Studio, our vintage finds, even a screen shot of an editorial spread featuring our designs will get your name in the hat. Regrams? Sure!

First drawing (that’s right, “first”) is December 15th. Aaaaaand…go!

Ti voglio bene.



In October, Brothers & Craft teamed up with GQ for the magazine’s How-To series spotlighting Nashville. Clay visited us at the Peter Nappi Studio to talk about where we’re from, where we’re going, and what “ti voglio bene” is all about.

Peter Nappi Premiere Leather Jacket Collection

Limited Edition Jacket Collection


Inspired by 1950’s Italian work and racing jackets…limited to just twelve pieces per style…that’s all we have to say about it.

JUST KIDDING. We’ve spent a year tinkering with our first-ever leather jacket collection, so we’d like to get speechy for a moment, if we may. What we love about creating any new design is building the perfect relationship between style and substance, lines and leather. Each jacket in the collection has been specially treated to simultaneously bring out the specific characteristics of the hide and create a lived-in feel.

Take the Noemi Collarless Bomber: pared down to a bomber’s sleekest components, its lines are minimalist, but they’re paired with the incredibly soft, luxurious texture of tumbled lambskin. Alina Asymmetrical Moto’s front zip leads to a collar with just the right balance of softness and structure, to be worn equally well up or down. The Mauro Classic Racer features an ultra lean silhouette, but gusseted shoulders make it a fully functional riding jacket, and subtle hand-burnishing makes each one unique. The Nico Utility Jacket, with its six-pocket maximum stowaway capacity, is ribbed with leather rather than fabric at the waist so it won’t pill or fray, and though the pockets are roomy, the fit is carefully tailored to avoid bulk.

Okay, Jackets, party of twelve, your table is ready.

Ti voglio bene.
