I wouldn't use Yoox though. Since #menswear became a thing, both of those brands, which used to be great bargains, have been driven up in price. If you are looking for inexpensive, go to an Italian outlet like threedifferent, where the prices are more like $200-$300, instead of $500+ You will have to get over the usually even more horrific than Yoox styling and fit pics though.

Boglioli is dope, it's like Bruno Cucinelli but with the required sensibilities and styling chops to avoid making it look like weekend dadwear.

re: yoox and suits:

I just picked up a few Pennesi suits for cheap that I am impressed with. I will post pics after tailoring. Size up on them.

Got some Mauro Grifoni stuff that I ended up returning. Nice enough, simiilar price and construction to OC but potentially more interesting. The trousers especially had a cool, slouchy fit (SF hotword) - I sized up. Materials weren't stellar, but were reasonable for sales prices. Blazer had woven leather buttons, and was nice, but too cropped for me. Sort of standard italian #menswear stuff, I guess.

Take your pick

Caruso @ ~400$ strikes me as a good deal. I believe they make the suits for RLBL. Could be wrong.

sorry mate, just check the yoox sample sale if you want super cheap. Not a ton of fun colors left, but CKC occasionally has interesting things

When I get to Italy, I realize that all my stuff is too loose. When I get back to the States, I am like "Man, this jacket is pretty tight."

Italy has not been a style leader for a long time now. However, guys there are much more interested in fashion than American men, so you see a huge amplification of trends. In any crappy mid-sized city, there will be at least a handful of boutiques selling stuff that you only find in regional centers in North America. And you'd never hear about them on the internet. For example. in Florence, apart from Luisa via Roma, which everyone knows, and PNP-Firenze, there is Space, which carries golden Goose, Sleep, and a bunch of stuff like that, and a smaller store off via Roma, just a block from Luisa, that sells Margiela, Dries. Rick Owens, and other stuff like that - and that's not to mention that dozens of stores carrying Trickers. Church's, Buttero, Santoni, etc..., and then stores dedicated to workwear, and other stores dedicated to very #menswear like Happy Jack. These are all literally within a football field of one another. Florence is a major tourist destination, so it has a higher per capita number of stores, but remember that Milan is only an hour away via train.

imo, this amplification of trends really leads to greater extremes. You can see it in the states. In smaller cities and in large swaths of the country, you can wear an SNS sweater, and you'll be the stylish guy for miles. However, in NYC, you had better be able to differentiate yourself, and you end up The Sartorialist. The tribes are more narrowly defined, and the irony is that self-expression is more stifled. I remember coming here to Moscow, ID, and there was this very good looking girl who was really pretty stylish, but she also unironically wore an Ed hardy tee, and looked really good. You can't do that in NYC. It simply couldn't happen. This is part of the reason that I have come to hate the phrase "brand synergy". It's what is making so many boutiques look exactly the same, with the same brands, and slightly different buys.

daytime? night? hot weather? mild?    make sure you can bust a move in it is my general advice.

hahah. good comparison. speaking of styling, I always liked the Boglioli spring 09 lookbook. Dreads with sprezz. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would probably look really dumb in these combos, btu these guys look pretty cool to me.
