Milan

Buying trip
Autumn Winter 19/20 

Well Milan just gets better each season.
The brands we work with now all have their headquarters in and around the city so our visits are imperative – especially (sadly) compared with our Florence trips which we can’t really justify anymore (only Inis Meain show there now! Sad faces all round)

This time we saw 3 of our favourite brands and here’s our round up of highlights….

 

 

 

Slowear
( Incotex / Montedoro / Zanone / Glanshirt )

The recently opened, super slick showroom in the Sempione district features a new artwork
and installation reflecting it’s Venetian heritage.

Slowear in general is one of our best performing brands so we spent a half day selecting new chinos and trousers from Incotex (about 60%), jackets and coats from Montedoro and
some beautiful knitwear from Zanone.

We’d welcome any feedback, we’re thinking this Work jacket will probably be a major buy in
both these Corduroy and Moleskin cloths.

Boglioli

After a major regrouping including a full buy out and reshuffle at the top, the originators of unstructured tailoring are back and in top form.
We stepped back from Boglioli for a year while they sorted themselves out but they invited us back this time and we went with an open mind to a brand we’ve always loved.

And…..
We’ll let’s just say we’ve increased our budget considerably following the visit!

Take a look at the new look Boglioli.
Starting with the star of the show….

This is their 100% Cashmere Field Jacket

Yes there are 2 Field Jackets here.
This second one is in the more commonly seen Oilve cotton.
However the similarities between this and your average cotton Field / safari jacket ends there.

We’re featuring them both because they’re so outstanding.
We were blown away as they look even more impressive in person.

The cut is really flattering with it’s drawstring waist, shoulder seams, subtle epaulettes and austere simplicity. They’re a touch smarter than your average but all the better for it.
And VERY Italian.
We love them.
As you can see!

Caruso

And our old friends at Caruso also came through on the jacket front.
We headed to Via Montenapoleone with tailoring in mind but in the end their coat game was also VERY strong.
As was the knitwear.
They’ve done a cashmere cotton programme with a great entry price…so expect high end, beautifully soft pieces with a mid range price tag.

All made in Italy.

But check out that SUEDE!!!
(More hearts for eyes emojis)

And it feels possibly even better than it looks.
The handle on this cloth is unbelievable and the price is again surprisingly good.
We love both of these immaculately made styles.

There are jackets too!…

The earliest we’ll have any of this in store is June 2019 for ‘Autumn’.
(This is pre collection so it’s very early)
