LC Italian Silk Herringbone Blazer
You’ve somehow garnered an invitation to the latest mega-yacht launching at LaSpezia. And suddenly your wardrobe is out of date.
You don’t want to flaunt wealth, you just want to look immensely secure. Which is how you would if you were an Onassis.
Clearly a case for my subtle Florentine fabric man.
He holds up a bolt of remarkable fabric. “Raw silk, Peterman. Do you see how the light hits it?”
I do, in fact; “Hmm, showy… without actually being showy,”
“Exactly. Now feel it.”
“Soft, lots of drape… but a complex texture.”
“Bene, you grasp it.”
What I go through for my customers.
Italian Silk Herringbone Blazer (No. 1897). Crisp shoulder pads. High notched lapels that broaden your chest. Double rear vents. Three button front. Simple, clean, confident. Pleasing details include inside ticket pocket, pickstitched lining.
Contrast it with an open-collar shirt, vaguely rumpled pants, loafers; people who think they know you will have some rethinking to do.
