The Good Italian

for more information on The Good Italian.
for more information on Four Seasons Milan.

Giancarlo Giannini, an actor of reference in Italian cinema and featuring in the series of short
movies “THE GOOD ITALIAN” started by Caruso in 2015, once again plays the Prince of Soragna,
the current descendant of the house of the Meli Lupi princes, who have lived in the splendid Rocca
di Soragna in the province of Parma since 1198.

In this episode, the Prince sets off from the courtyard of the Rocca with his legendary Lancia
Aurelia B24, and arrives in Milan at the Four Seasons Hotel, a former convent since the end of the
15th century, founded by the sisters of St. Mary of Jesus, hence the present-day name of the street,
today the epicentre of male style.

Caruso and Four Seasons invite the international guests of the Milan Fashion Week to visit
the exclusive parts of the Hotel where the movie was shot:
the lobby with its original frescoes, where the gentlemen of Milan meet for business and
conversation; the futuristic kitchens, almost a laboratory of alchemy, where in a game of roles
Giannini − who defines himself the king of pesto − prepares his secret recipe debating with
the award-winning chef Vito Mollica; the most private and quiet of suites on the top floor, hung
with precious fabrics and dedicated by Caruso to the opera; the cloister of the convent, with the
age-old tree that witnesses the miraculous “conversion” of the skeptical niece thanks to the now
famous trenette al pesto.

How De Petrillo Perfected The Recipe Of The Suit | MR PORTER

I like to think that what De Petrillo expresses is style, not fashion. It’s an expression of style which maintains its Neapolitan roots but which is of global inspiration.” In the latest chapter of MR PORTER’s Rethinking The Suit series, we journey to Naples to meet Mr Benedetto De Petrillo, the founder of a tailoring brand challenging the craft’s status quo.

How Husbands Is Rethinking The Suit | MR PORTER

While it’s unfair to make assumptions about a person based purely on where they live, you might expect a Parisian tailor to take a rather more philosophical approach to their craft than one based in, say, Milan or London. Philosophy permeates every aspect of French life, after all, from the classroom to the dining table; why should the tailor’s fitting room be off-limits? Stereotypical as it may sound, this theory is lent a certain credibility by Husbands, a menswear atelier in the heart of Paris. Here, being fitted for a suit means first confronting one’s own mortality.

You accept your chronology. You accept that you're not in a constant cycle of youth and that you will die.”

Learn How Your Suit Should Fit

Transcript:

It’s been said that when a suit fits well, it’s the most flattering thing a man can wear.



Whether you wear a suit every day, or only on occasion, ensuring you look your best and feel confident is something the experts at Harry Rosen have the experience to help you with.

Let me share a few pointers that we can apply, regardless of whether your style leans toward a classic or contemporary silhouette.

How the jacket hangs off your shoulders, and the drape of the lapel are the foundations when choosing a ready to wear suit. We want as good a fit as possible before we consider any alterations.

The shoulders should be rounded and smooth with no dimpling or rumpling.

The lapels should be flat and smooth against your chest.

The collar should be smooth against your neck with no bunching or gaping.

The jacket should be fitted to your body – top button at the slimmest part of your waist – with no pulling across the closure.

Sleeves should be smooth with minimal twisting and end just above your wrist, leaving a quarter to half an inch of your shirt cuff exposed.

Vents should lay flat with no flaring or tugging.
Now, on to the trousers.

Pants should be fastened at your natural waist. The seat should be smooth with no creasing or sagging.

The break should naturally crease just above your shoes.

While some rules of style are fun to break, the fit of a suit should be non-negotiable. Consider an appointment with a Harry Rosen Clothing Advisor for the benefit of experience when it comes to your next suit.

My First Italian Bespoke Suit Delivery | Kirby Allison

In today's video, we are extremely excited to present Kirby Allison's brand new bespoke suit delivery with Sartoria Jensen. Eric Jensen conducts the final delivery of a new Bespoke Italian Fresco Suit handmade in New York by Eric Jensen himself. The word FRESCO is derived from the Italian word Affresco, which means FRESH. This breathable fabric has an open weave that allows air to pass through, making it the perfect suiting fabric even on the hottest days. This will be Kirby Allison's first Italian style suit.

In 2009 Eric Jensen followed his passion to learn the old world tradition of bespoke tailoring, by attending a prestigious school under a celebrated Italian maestro, Luigi Gallo. Eric graduated from Maestro Gallo's school, receiving his Master Tailor certificate, and he spent 4 additional years as an apprentice to tailor Chris Despos in Chicago.

Now located near Gramercy Park in New York City, Eric is one of the last American-based tailors to carry on the bespoke tradition. He continues the art of tailoring in it's the purest form, hand-drafting each client’s unique body pattern and molding canvas to the specific shapes and curves of the body. At least 30,000 strategically placed hand stitches go into the making of each suit.
