In the world of men’s fashion, formal wear gives place to more relaxed casual one year by year. Modern lifestyle of a businessman fits less into the traditional office look. Working meetings interlace with business flights. Relaxation visit to the country club can turn into a meeting. And golfing can be the time to make an important deal. That is why designers and fashion brands pay less attention to the classical costume group in the autumn-winter collections, focusing on the universal cosmopolitan wear – comfort, luxury, elegant but with a touch of carelessness. Welcome to the Country Club!
Angelo Galasso Shirt
The Italian designer Angelo Galasso is renowned for his ability to create unique clothes for businessmen who value comfort above all. For example, one of the most famous inventions of Galasso is the Polso Orologio Shirt with a special cut-out cuff that allows showing the clock. The designer is known for being inspired by the former president of Fiat, Gianni Agnelli, who was forced to wear his watch over the shirt cuff due to a metal allergy. In the new season, Galasso does not cease to amaze, offering a collection of branded collar shirts. The whole shirt is sewn using a special method of French stitches – the edges of the fabric are fully enclosed for a neat finish. Pattern effect and color buttons are a design solution that will allow wearing the shirt with jeans and suede boots.
The most fashionable outerwear of the new season is different fashion hybrids. They combine the properties of several types of clothing. The perfect autumn choice for trips to the countryside or informal meetings is the mix of a modest leather bomber and warm down jacket like from the new collection of Italian luxury brand Cruciani. Color is also important. In this season, stylists call a subdued marsh shade ‘new brown’: it looks original and perfectly combines with both the cold shades of blue denim and gray tones of wool or tweed.
Bottega Veneta Moccasins
Moccasins with a signature intrecciato weave by Bottega Veneta have long belonged to the category of timeless classics. Despite the fact that this footwear was originally designed for men who spend a lot of time behind the wheel (the model is called Driver respectively), such buckskin moccasins will perfectly fit into the semi-formal image with self-colored trousers and a woolen jacket.
The House of Gucci in Florence is famous for its perfect leather accessories, so it is impossible to think of a better choice. Stylish ‘Made in Italy’ leather gloves from a special collection dedicated to equestrian sport will be perfect for a rural getaway in the fresh air.
Herno Puffer Jacket
The ultra light Herno puffer jacket with a fashionable marsala shade and filling of 95% goose down and 5% goose feather is the perfect companion on numerous business trips. Waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric will make you feel comfortable both outside and inside any building, for example, in the airport business lounge.
The small bag with a short handle of grained calfskin having dessert wine color has got two partitions. It will go well with jeans, suede boots of dark brown color and a jumper or jacket to match. An interesting detail is a branded lining with a design crown and bee print.
Brioni Baseball Cap
The woolen cap with leather details is a country style classic. Brioni designer Brendan Mullane considers this accessory a versatile one thanks to the classic checkered print and beautiful metal fittings. You can wear it along with a cashmere coat or a mackintosh.
Armani Collezioni Scarf
The cashmere and woolen scarf from Armani Collezioni will complement any men’s outfit. Decorative fringe makes this accessory cozier. Houndstooth print (or a dog-tooth spar) and the brand logo embroidery can be considered its fashionable elements.
