Kiton 7 Fold Ties
I know most SF members know exactly what is a seven fold tie. What you may or may not know: at www.SARTORIALE.com we stock one of the biggest selection of Kiton seven fold ties in the world, perhaps the best collection anywhere online.
In the last decade there was a renaissance of tie maker artisans, who proposed their products online. This new generation of entrepreneurs become fond of the traditional tie construction: the seven fold. Many of them succeeded to create great products, helping to promote this still underrated accessory of classical menswear.
Probably Kiton is the most important player in the 7 Fold game.
We are showing here a few in solid colors, from various fabrics, cashmere, silk, linen, wool.
Aside from the top notch handmade construction, which keep these ties last forever, there is something about them….perhaps the taste and experience of the Kiton design team, their relentless energy to create hundreds of exclusive designs every season, maybe it is the handle of the tie, the right balance of the fabric and interlining, what enables you to always tie your favorite knot in the right way. I am not sure what is the exact reason, but I am keep going back to our drawers to pick a new one for myself….
ISAIA "The tailored rebel look": from our last shoot.
Isaia double breasted sport coat paired with a western denim shirt, is refined take on casual dressiness. PT01 White jeans and Persol 714 foldable sunglasses complete the look. What is missing from the picture is a pair of brown wingtip boots from VASS to give the whole look a rightly deserved finish.

It happens fairly rarely that a designer defines men's dressing as much as Hedi Slimane did during his time at Dior Homme.
If you look through his collections today they still feel relevant almost ten years later, which is quite a feat in the incessant world of fashion. His most acknowledged silhouette was the skinny trouser, which still today is ubiquitous the world over.
Creating enduring, poweful looks is only one of his best assets, nailing to perfection single pieces is another. This is the reason why his creations for Dior Homme are highly sought after by fashion aficionados all over the world.
We were lucky to aquire a few truly mind-blowing garments from his last collection for the legendary fashion house: true collectors' items, in other words, museum quality pieces.
The black leather jacket could be a costume made for the new Blade Runner movie. It is something to be admired by urban villains, A bold, tough statement, which is actually quite easy to wear. Black on black on black is the look to go for.
The same safety belt detailing was used on the shearling jacket. A rather unsusual detail, which sets off these garments in an otherworldly way. As the styling shows, this is a piece, which needs to be thrown into the mix.
Acid washed denim or a pair of skinny flannel can do the trick here. The important thing with a jacket of this magnitude is to wear it with some attitude and panache.

"The classic polo coat has always been considered the best-looking topcoat a man can wear." G. Bruce Boyer
One of the most prized clothing related inventions of Polo is the distinct double-breasted overcoat by the same name as the sport itself.
Originally a "wait-coat", which the players wore in between chukkas, it was a wrap style coat with a full belt.
The style has a louche, nonchalant attitude and certain casual elegance, which is rare to find in single garments.
See our version from Belvest
The Polo coat as we know it today, came to it’s final form later on. The definite heyday of the style was in the 1920’s and 30’s. Mimicking the players, it became the thing to wear for spectators as well.
In America, the key moment was in 1930 at the Yale-Princeton football game, when it famously outnumbered the racoon coat style and thereafter, the popularity of the garment soared.
It was helped along the way by being favoured by the greatest sartorialists from The Duke of Windsor to Gianni Agnelli.
(Brioni DB Olive Green Polo Coat currently on sale down from $7,250 to $1602.90)The specific styling features are what makes the polo coat a prized menswear possession.
Double breasted with a notched Ulster collar, full length, set in sleeves with turnback cuffs, patch pockets and the half-belt on the back.
These lend a casual air to the garment, while being elegant at the same time. It also enables the wearer to wear it over a suit or to dress it down with a pair of jeans and chukka boots.
This sort of versatility is rarely found in other type of topcoats. That is why still today the polo coat is the choice of the menswear cognoscenti.
While originally this type of coat was made out of pure camel hair, today’s versions are mostly blends of camel hair, wool, cashmere or alpaca. The reason for this is that camel hair is indeed soft, light and warm, but it also tends to wear out fairly quickly.
Our favourite versions on Sartoriale are the red tweed from Belvest
and the gray plaid Sartoria Partenopea model.
Both the fabrics and the cut of these pieces were updated to modern standards. They are truly fresh interpretations, whilst maintaining respect to the original style.
don't need another sports coat now, but this is awesome
