Fall Inspiration - Sartoria Partenopea




In Italy, its all about the jacket. Napoli's Sartoria Partenopea masterfully demonstrated that idea this fall by utilizing light grey flannel and khaki trousers as the perfect blank canvases for their beautifully cut and patterned blazers. I kick around the idea of elegance in my head a lot and the more I think about it, the more I move in this direction.

beautiful jackets. i love the "italian base" leaving room for jacket color experimentation.

I like the way that these jackets come in at the waist (as they should!) and the lapels sit higher on the torso. Great stuff.

Dale - The sack jacket was an invention of mass production and distribution. Brooks brothers tried to make a jacket that would fit anybody. I've always been taught that clothes are supposed to be a reflection of who you are personally. These are two outwardly opposing ideas. Why a man would want a jacket that didn't look like it was made for him is beyond me.

Where can one find such a jacket? I'm on the West coast.
Thanks

Amazing, really. These are the fall looks. I saved all the photos. I'm going to look to them for inspiration in the coming months.

I need more crazy blazers.
