Pitti 87 – Lubiam

lubiam pitti 87

Pitti 87 – Lubiam Another brand I wanted to show is Italian menswear clothing specialist called Lubiam. Lubiam has been founded by Luigi Bianchi in 1939 even though he has owned a menswear store since 1911. The location of the premises of the first shop was his home town – Mantova, in North Italy and this is partly where the name ‘Lubiam’ came from. It is an acronym from Luigi, Bianchi and Mantova. Today, the brand is being run by a fourth generation of the Bianchi family. Lubiam offers clothes from …

Pitti 87 – GTA Manifattura Pantaloni

IMG_2236-crop

Pitti 87 GTA Manifattura Pantaloni I must admit this is the brand I have never heard of before. Trousers making brands are not the most popular in the clothing market, the only well know that produces RTW trousers is Incotex. Therefore I got interested because rich colours on the display caught my eye. GTA Maniffatura Pantaloni is an Italian brand, formely GTA moda, that specialize in making trousers. It has been founded in 1955 in Selvazzano Dentro, Province of Padua, in Italy. The AW16 collection presented during Pitti Uomo 87 featured mainly …

Pitti 87 Lardini Day 3 Day 3 at Pitti was basically all about meeting friends, both new and old, taking photos, networking and socializing.  I also focused a little bit more on visiting brands and taking proper photos, not only with my phone. In the following weeks I will show you brands I visited and those I like most. Today I start with Lardini. Lardini Lardini presented a collection which involved many more different textures compared to last year. They also focused more on richer colours like shades of orange. Next season is …

Pitti 87 – part 2

Beshoes event florence

Pitti 87 – part 2 Day 2 Day 2 was very difficult, probably for everyone at Pitti. It was Wednesday so the day after the first night out. It was quite obvious that people had good fun the night before as the fair was relatively empty by midday. The ones who arrived, either for work or just because they were very keen to experience Pitti as much as they could were clearly on a hangover. For me it was a busy morning as I forgot to change time on my …

Pitti 87 – part 1

WalkAbout Pitti - 037

Pitti 87 – part 1 Its only been two days in the office so I feel like I was at Pitti yesterday. For a person who have not been there before it was quite overwhelming and very exciting event. Day 1 We arrived on Tuesday afternoon in Pisa, took a bus to Florence and had a 20min walk with all our bags to the hotel. The flight from London was rather short, only 1h50 which really seemed like not too long. By the time you noticed that we were in …

Denim shirt and wool trousers

IMG_1580-771x1024-crop

Denim shirt and wool trousers I have quite recently written a post on a light blue denim shirt today however I want to show you a look featuring a darker shade of blue. The shirt was also finished by hand but the fabric has not been washed as much as the other one. In this way a more blue shade was achieved. Calkiem niedawno na blogu pojawil sie post o jasno niebieskiej dzinsowej koszuli, dzisiaj podobnie, ale nie tak calkiem. Chce Wam pokazac niemal identyczna jesli chodzi o styl i …

Striped Luxire shirt and flannel

Mikolaj Pawelczak

Striped Luxire shirt and flannel In the last months I have become even more fond of striped shirts. This must be partly because of ties I like to wear most: printed silks or fabrics with texture. In my opinion one needs a more interesting background/canvass for the look to succeed. White shirt is perfect for more formal occasions where playing with a colourful tie or texture is just not appropriate. This is exactly why in the late October I ordered another batch of garments from Luxire. Below you can find …

Pitti Uomo 87 is coming!

PI_HF_ADV_UOMO_ITA

Pitti Uomo 87 is coming! Yes! It is this time of a year, no, not Christmas. Every one seriously into #menswear has already started preparing looks and thinking about all 3 or 4 outfits that is going to wear during Pitti. I do not have to introduce this event to any of the readers I think but for the sake of complicity I will.  In the picture above, you can see core values of Pitti: innovation, research, internationalism, expertise and independence. Pitti Uomo is one of the worlds, if not …

MTM Denim shirt

Luxire denim shirt

MTM Denim shirt You have already seen this MTM Denim shirt I ordered from Luxire some time ago but I haven’t share any specific details about it yet. In this post I wanted to show you some of the hand-finish details that are important in a shirt and that distinguish it from a regular RTW one. On top of the photo below please find another one of myself from my Instagram (which I encourage you to follow too!) All my shirts are pretty much only from Luxire these days but this particular …
