A tale of two DB’s: Canali vs. Cifonelli

Cifonelli wins by TKO, thanks to generous lapel width action, with higher gorge and tighter chest.

Swan & Oscar shirt
Traveller’s Club tie (possibly the ugliest repp tie out there)
Comptoir des Chemisiers ps

My new iPhone technique using Aviary to flip the mirror selfie so that the ps is back on the right side.

Canali

NSM unlined wool tie, makes a perfect double side dimple
Boggi linnen ps, frankly not that different from an SG, at a fraction of the cost

DB — definitely not for beginners.

Get your alterations guy to turn it into a second skin, or else it won’t look like much. Likewise, a bit of shoulder extension is welcome (even if that’s counter-trend currently.)

The ground on the tie is actually black, which I usually avoid, but I think it actually works well with a charcoal suit.

Some inspiration from the Canali storefront.

After trying out so many different brands in my life — and reselling almost as many — I must confess that Canali holds a special place in my heart. When, after a long hiatus, I slip a Canali jacket back on, it hits me like a ‘welcome home’ sensation. Few brands have that (and in truth it may just be that my body type matches up to their cut best.) Their cut, fabric choices and construction make them one of my all-time go-to brands, despite the hefty price tag.

Canali RTW.

Bespoke tailor Andrea Luparelli of Sartoria Ripense (Rome) striking the trademark Dirnelli pose, at the modern art gallery of fellow iGent Laurent M. in Paris.

Dirnelli, wearing only Canali RTW, is heavily outgunned by Andrea wearing self-made suit.

Boggi unlinned flannel shepherds check SC. Arthur & Fox shirt. Crunchy knit tie by Boivin. Hiltl cotton trousers. Canali ps. Finsbury suede captoe brogued oxfords.

Lander Urquijo vs. Boggi

1) Lander Urquijo MTM CMT PoW FU SC with patch pockets.

2) Boggi RTW PoW FU SC.

I think Lander wins this round.

Canali silk ps — awesome pattern of concentric circles, a nice change from paisley and dots.
