Yes they are still around. By coincidence I just happened to be looking at some of their pieces last week. My wife and I had spent the day shopping over in the Rockville, Maryland area and we stopped off to a visit an old friend who owns a fine mens shop in the White Flynt Mall...The store is called "Bruno Cipriani." They've been there for many years (2 decades)... and even before that, Eduardo the owner had been offering very high-end mens clothes in the Washington area for a decade or more (I first met him when he had his shop "Eduardo's" in Georgetown Park. I still own a few things by Calugi e Giannelli (from many years ago)... including a couple of jackets. Typical of C e G's stuff, both are very "unusual." When we were walking through the store I had spotted a rack full of their pieces, and I exclaimed to Eduardo "They're still around!?!? Wow, I had no idea!" Bottom line to my long-winded answer... If you live in the DC area you can find Calugi e Giannelli at Bruno Cipriani in the White Flynt Mall. FYI- Bruno Cipriani is also the only store in the US that is licensed to carry the Versace Signature line (other than Versace owned and operated stores). Eduardo, an Italian from the "old country" knew Gianni personally from when Versace was first offered in the USA...and years later Eduardo's daughter was head of sales for Versace USA. Random thought...At Eduardo's urging, I bought my first pair of Incotex trousers at Bruno Cipriani (15+ years ago). Lately I've been losing weight like crazy (intentional) and just last week I tried on that pair of creme colored, lightweight wool, Incotex pants (w/box pleats)...and they fit fine, and still look fabulous! If you do stop by the store you should also check out the Messori line. I have Messori shirts that go back decades and they're just as wonderful. Hope that helps... Dennis

a friend of mine used to like their stuff. used to buy it from a store called jean-charles in chicago. wasn't cheap. shirts were pretty bold. not sure of the quality, as that really wasn't something I looked into back then.
