    Particularly like the cut of the trousers. Of course I love that color and cloth, that in a DB is a perfect and little known classic.

    The double-breasted 6x1 is really very special. Who likes to dress should have in their wardrobe. In fact, Gianni Agnelli and Loro Piana if they were all so do. And even without slits behind.

    I was always wondering what that was called. My first DB was a vintage one and I thought it was strange with the button placement.

    Choreographer George Balanchine. Not sure when the picture was taken; I printscreened it from a programme with Darcey Bussell currently available on BBC iPlayer.

    Of course you're right ... although in some cases the past was better than the present. Once in Italy the downtown streets of the city were perennial fashion shows but now is not so unfortunately.

    Sure ... and in those years there were not even the companies that produce clothing on size. Everyone went by tailors!
