The Italian Gentleman THE MASTER TAILORS OF ITALIAN MEN’S FASHION HUGO JACOMET

This celebration of the world of Italian menswear presents detailed profiles of Milan’s finest tailors and designers who have produced exemplary clothing for generations of connoisseurs. London may have Savile Row and Paris its luxury houses, but none possess or exude that essence of Italian menswear’s nonchalant elegance: sprezzatura. This book presents the most in-depth look at the designers, tailors, and artisans who for generations have come to define the very notion of Italian style. From such fabled names as Brioni and Berluti to highly sought-after global brands like Zegna and Loro Piana, more than fifty iconic Italian menswear houses are celebrated for their individual style and their commitment to upholding the values inherent in creating the finest men’s clothing in the world. Featuring lavish illustrations with many close-ups of subtle but exquisite details, The Italian Gentleman explores the world of fine Italian menswear, including not just the iconic brands but also fabric mills, shirting, neckwear, accessories, shoemaking, and a special section on the history of Pitti Uomo, the trade fair at the epicenter of Italian menswear. This timely publication is a tribute to timeless Italian traditions with today’s modern man in mind. Hugo Jacomet is a French columnist, screenwriter, artistic director, and film producer best known for his online men’s style magazine, Parisian Gentleman.
