Business Casual - Luigi Borrelli


For inspiration on a smart casual look, I'd reccomend Luigi Borrelli; one of my favourite brands. Probably more prominent in casual wear but they do offer world class fromal items. Their incursion into the tailored clothing business is recent; however you would not know it from the quality of their suits and sportcoats! The story is that they hired a top tailor away from Kiton to head their operation. True or not, these are world class garments, often with detailing you will not see elsewhere, even on a Kiton!! Truly amazing.

I don't know about this one. Quite a few patterns that compliment each other only somewhat. I will say though, that items laying on a bed look quite different from those on a mannequin. Even then, they can look a lot better on the person. Show the world what it looks like in real life!

Emmeul, I do intend to show what these items of clothing look like on me. Hopefully I get round to it over the next couple of weeks!

Very nice.
Doesn't Oxxford offer greater detail than both?

I would say that Borrelli is on par with Oxxford in terms of quality!

I just love the pattern on that jacket. Can you tell us more about it?

The jacket is a wonderful example of soft tailoring. The lapels and pockets are handpicked. The buttonholes are handsewn. The lapel buttonhole is functional and there is a boutonniere loop on the back of the lapel to hold a flower in place should you choose to wear one! The edges of the lining are handpicked. The Borrelli crest (it's an Italian version of a royal warrant I believe) is sewn to the lining just inside the collar.
