Book - The Italian Gentleman | Peter's of Kensington

The Italian Gentleman

Product Number: 442258
In the world of fashion, Italy is the Mount Everest of men’s style. London may have Savile Row, Paris its luxury industries and New York Madison Avenue, but none possesses the true essence of Italian nonchalant elegance – the sprezzatura. Beyond its global fashion brands, the soul of Italian style is found in the workshops and boutiques of the established masters and artisans who for generations have created the finest menswear on the planet.

Filled with exquisite photography commissioned specifically for this book, unveil the country’s finest fabric merchants, tailors and shoemakers and capture the refined individuals who or emblematic of Italian style with The Italian Gentleman. Packed with portraits of rarely-seen producers at work, this richly-illustrated journey is essential reading for all those who appreciate the beauty of a bespoke suit, the quality of a hand-welted shoe, the luxury of handmade gloves or the flamboyant panache of a seven-fold silk tie.
