Today, I’m exceptionally infringing my own editorial charter, for good cause, with a picture which is indeed by me, but not of me this time. This pic is one of my bespoke tailors, Andrea Luparelli, of Sartoria Ripense in Rome, wearing only his own label, as his shop provides bespoke anything, from head to toe, even including bespoke knitwear, which is rare… What struck me upon seeing him dressed this way in his Paris apartment-showroom was the Solaro material of his suit (which you’ll never see in Paris, only in Italy), with its signature reddish highlights than my iPhone camera cannot catch. For more examples of Ripense clothes, see Paul’s Tumblr: paul-lux.tumblr.com
