For us here at MFM, the excitement for a new season complete with new styles is something that gets us really excited. Some of us here really enjoy the AW Season because of the styles and trends that inevitably come round. This season we have fallen for the many different types of suits and tailoring that have arrived on the scene giving mens formal wear a more relaxed feel for this season. One brand in particular that we have developed a sartorial crush on is Gagliardi, a brand that embodies the timeless appeal of Savile Row yet plays it up with a distinctive Mediterranean flair. Rich colours and on-trend cuts and textures are embraced here with a no-nonsense approach when it comes to quality and craftsmanship. Luxury doesn’t have to be uptight and Gagliardi most definitely embrace this style ethos. This results in a menswear rarity, realistically cut clothes with clever little touches and details that you would only usually find on the catwalk.
If you take a look through their latest AW13 collection it becomes clear as to why we are favoring them right now, like may people who consider this brand a menswear favourite. This season’s inspirations stems from the idea of a vintage ski resort, solving the problems of finding good looking clothes whilst injecting their own hint of Mediterranean charm, comfort and of course style. these finely tailored pieces are all about what we love this season, traditional tailoring and deconstructed pieces. In fact we did an article on it as part of our ‘Autumn Luxe’ series. However this brand has added a wonderful range of warm colours to their collection, a kind of sartorial finesse favoured by many of the elite Italian fashion connoisseurs.
Gagliardi are a brand that likes to give its customer plenty of variety, their clothes racks are a mix and match haven which is perfect for those who love versatility in their wardrobes. Many of these incredible pieces include wax coated cotton washed jackets, an embodiment of the British county look with the style and luxury of the traditional Italian cut. Machine stitched elbow patches are ever present,as are patch pockets and neat button detailing. These are things we look for as the saying goes ‘the devil is in the detail’. They have also included quilted waterproof jackets trimmed with a beautiful and delicate Alacantra leather, this simple touch of elegance perfects these kind of pieces perfectly. For the more relaxed of us they also do pieces that steer clear of tailored formality with denim pieces and washed cotton jackets that could easily be combined with the brands very own five-pocket washed cord trousers. They also have a range of shirts, cable knitwear pieces, polo shirts and their own range of accessories.
This literally is a brand where you can get everything you need, essentially a one stop shop for style. Don’t even get me started on the footwear, it is luxurious, expertly crafted and super stylish as well. You can be reassured in knowing that this brand is attentive in its approach to creating perfect pieces for the stylish gent, it will make you feel stylish and comfortable without that awful restrictive feeling normally associated with mens formal wear. Here’s some of our favourite pieces:
