Of all the lamentable things about the state of travel today, perhaps the most jarring is the utter lack of presentability of many (most?) of one's fellow passengers. Perhaps coinciding with the general slough in the quality of the overall customer experience, it sometimes seems as though even the most frequent flyers often eschew looking their Sunday sharpest nowadays, opting instead for the most comfortably casual kit possible in an attempt to offset the discomfort foisted upon them by what are increasingly close quarters, streamlined service models, and seemingly endless delays.
Part of that challenge is because up until recently, one had to choose between looking sharp and being comfortable. Suits and sportcoats were built with much more structure and heft, trousers considered dressy enough to pair with a jacket were almost always made in heavier gauge, less forgiving fabrics. Even footwear that measured up aesthetically with a more polished overall look always seemed to fall short in the realm of comfort - we're looking at you, leather soles.
But as dictated by our detail-driven design ethos, we believe the solution to fit and comfort-related problems lies in the make and materials. And because we not only prefer to elevate our travel wardrobe at every opportunity, but also offer our fellow travelers, mercifully, a viable (read: comfortable) option to do the same, we craft much of our clothing with mobility in mind - classic dressy garments that are made to move, yet never lose their shape.
We start with luxuriously soft yet sturdy materials like hopsack wool from renowned Italian mill Reda, 100% Italian brushed cotton flannel, or Italian cotton in a dobby weave. We add innovative elements like extra thick Italian buttons and our proprietary one-piece collar, purpose built to stylishly stand up to the rigors of the road. We then craft garments that are engineered to move, designed without extra bulk in a sleek European cut, and will keep you looking rakish and ready regardless of travel's inevitable wear and tear.
