In 1898, 16-year-old Luigi Bianchi set off from the Italian province of Mantova bound for Turin, the storied capital of northern Italy's tradition of master tailoring. By 1911, he’d founded his own label — now known as Lubiam — and began designing luxury men’s clothing. Bianchi's company remains a family affair, but has evolved from a single line into a tailoring house with two distinct imprints: the casual-cool LBM 1911, and a more classically minded offering aptly titled Luigi Bianchi Mantova. Blending exquisite fabrics and expert fabrication with razor-sharp cuts, the company’s clothing includes canvassed suits, impeccable coats and blazers, and sportswear made to last. One day you might pass your Luigi Bianchi Mantova linen and wool jackets down to your sons — that is, if you can bear to part with them.
Once in a while, we wind up with some great items that haven't found their way to a good home (read: yours). It’s tragic, we know. But there’s a silver lining — we've put all our stylish leftovers in one place for easy browsing (and picking). We’ve only got a few of each item in stock, so move fast before we run out.
End the weekend on a high note with a great deal on some of menswear’s greatest hits. Here you’ll find everything from denim and sneakers, to bomber jackets and topcoats. It’s the kind of selection you’ll want to tell your friends about (but only after you’ve made your picks).
Looking for advice on how to look sharp this season? You could do worse than follow the lead of Nick Sullivan, who, in addition to being fashion director of Esquire is one of the best dressed guys we know. With that in mind — and to celebrate the latest issue of the magazine’s biannual Big Black Book — we asked Nick to curate a sale featuring his picks for what a man of style should be wearing circa fall 2013. Oh, and for further advice on how to put it all together, be sure to pick up a copy of the latest Big Black Book — offered at a price you won’t find anywhere else.
The color-averse will find a little bit of everything that they love in this sale, which features picks that run the gamut of styles — but stick to the monochrome side of the color spectrum. Still love your bright hues? Not a problem. Stock up on some standby neutrals here, and work them into your wardrobe as you see fit.
