Belvest AW13 at Pitti Uomo 83

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
We had the chance to look at the Belvest AW13 collection a couple of weeks ago at Pitti Uomo 83. I was first introduced to the line at Louis Boston - where the cut of the jackets is slightly shorter and trimmer through the arms than usual. This was back in the early 2000s, when Louis was installed in the New England Museum of Natural History, and the window displays showed the line mixed and matched in a very casual, slightly off kilter, but elegant way.

Tailored, classic, menswear is about the details and subtle tweaks, and is usually, in my opinion, shown best in a showroom or tradeshow setting than on the runway. So, lucky us.

This years collection was a much as I remembered it, with a lot of tailoring and soft outerwear and knits, in neutral colors with port and orange being the dominant colors, and a lot of natural shoulder jackets and coats in checked fabrics. A lot of the outerwear is unlined in double-sided fabrics.

Belvest stuff was really nice. That brown coat in the middle of the last pic was particularly nice. I'll have more to say about Belvest later on, with more pictures too.

Belvest makes wonderful clothing and is an excellent value. I find that I need to size up for the best fit. MAC in San Francisco carries some of their clothing. I especially like their softer construction models.

American fit, PSG, american fit. I know that you think that I wear my clothes fitted, but it's nearly relaxed fit by Italian standards.

They do quite a wide variety, partly because they make for many other brands, as you say. They make slim and structured as well as drapey and deconstructed.

I like that brown plaid jacket. Do you have a full view pic of it? (As in, not a close up?)

Possibly, but I was only given clearance to publish these ones. I do have outtakes though.

I think that to get that Italian fit on the clothes you already have, you have to do the exact opposite. Buon appetito!

I THINK this is the same jacket and the lighting in our pictures is just different. In any case, this jacket was amazing. Fantastic lapel roll.

at the NMLC near me they have had a bunch of belvest completely unstructured SCs, mostly cotton, and they all have a very drapey/loose fit for the marked size. at least compared to other italian clothing in that marked size that i have or have tried on.

So how does that work? Shaya mentioned vendors being very protective over what photos could be published. Do they allow you to freely take photos, but they dictate what can be published online?

Also, is this why the only photos you ever see come out of Pitti are close-up shots and not full product views? (or at least the majority of the time)

It might have been their 'Jacket in a Box' jacket?
