Berluti Makes Us Lust Again: The Berluti White Suit
The Berluti story is more than a story of desire for shoes that render a sweet feeling of vertigo—the Berluti rise to stardom is more like a novel filled with risk-taking and in-your-face attitude and perhaps some of the most beautiful (if at certain times delicate) patina-finished shoes in the world. But on the subject [...] Read more – ‘Berluti Makes Us Lust Again: The Berluti White Suit’

The Immortal Pour Un Homme de Caron
Simplicity is a virtue. The strongest message is often the simplest one… that is, the one void of anything but the message itself. But sometimes, simplicity is hard to achieve, whether in the area of men’s style, literature, cinema, or perfumery. Simplicity demands the maturity to resist the temptation of overdoing the task. When in [...] Read more – ‘The Immortal Pour Un Homme de Caron’
The Ideal Garment Bag ?
Gentlemen, We’re finally back home after a pretty intense bout of travel during which we took no less than eight flights over the course of ten days, and our trusty suits were of course part of the trip. As many of you know,  it is very stressful to take along suits on a plane, as [...] Read more – ‘The Ideal Garment Bag ?’
The Elegant Rebel : Mouchoir de Monsieur
The day I lost my perfume sample collection was tragic indeed. I was eight or nine years old back then. Stashed in a shiny little black cardboard box that I kept at the back of my closet was my treasure—that is, a truly ridiculous amount of perfume samples haphazardly thrown into a messy pile. I [...] Read more – ‘The Elegant Rebel : Mouchoir de Monsieur’
Green Day
Gentlemen, today is Saint Patrick’s Day, and green reigns supreme ! We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that green is a color you should consider wearing outside of such occasions.

The Canvas War Has Been Declared
Gentlemen, As you probably already know, it’s safe to say that there is a general consensus that canvassing – or lack thereof – is a key point that differentiates the suits of an honorable-make from those destined for mass consumption. As a key factor in terms of quality, the subject of canvassing may have started [...] Read more – ‘The Canvas War Has Been Declared’

O’Mast : My Tailor is a Hero
Gentlemen, This article was written to correct an injustice. The beautiful movie dedicated to Neapolitans master tailors « O’Mast » released at the end of 2011 never made its way into a proper article on this website until now. A mistake indeed, for its gifted director Gianluca Migliarotti – a children of Naples himself – is worthy [...] Read more – ‘O’Mast : My Tailor is a Hero’

Summer, Finally — Men in White
Tom Ford. It has been a long awaited change of season, as Europe has been in strange warp of  the wet and the overcast (with France having 50 percent less sunshine this spring than average). With the perpetual inundation of blogs, television shows, and movies where well-dressed men prevail, it’s hard not to notice how [...] Read more – ‘Summer, Finally — Men in White’
