RTW 2005 Dior Homme Black Cotton Sportcoat - Size 34​/​44R

Description

Dior is synonymous with French couture since 1946. Created by Christian Dior​,​ it quickly became eponymous with luxury​,​ elegance and classic French sophistication​,​ thanks to its "New Look" in women's Haute Couture. It was the home of countless legendary designers​,​ notably Yves Saint Laurent​,​ Marc Bohan​,​ and Gianfranco Ferré. Marc Bohan was the first designer to create a ready-to-wear line for Dior in menswear​,​ in 1970. Named Christian Dior Monsieur​,​ it was an instant success and was endorsed by celebrities such as Jean-Louis Trintignant. Made in Italy​,​ the quality was good​,​ but lacked an identity and its own aesthetic. In 2001​,​ Christian Dior Monsieur changed his name for Dior Homme​,​ with Hedi Slimane as its creative director. Dior Homme defined the silhouette of menswear for the decade: a minimalist approach​,​ a structured shoulder​,​ a reminder of 1960's cut​,​ a very slim silhouette​,​ and a dark palette of black​,​ navy blue and charcoal grey. Hedi Slimane also introduced the idea of a runway music artist: a singer or band that will epitomise the collection​,​ creating a blend between culture and fashion. While some may criticise the direction taken by men's fashion because of the slim cut introduced by Dior and Hedi Slimane​,​ no one can deny the quality of the construction​,​ the precision of the cut​,​ and of course its lasting impact on menswear for more than a decade. I propose a classic and a symbol of Dior Homme during the Hedi Slimane era: a black sportcoat in cotton​,​ with a slight shine to the fabric. Made by Caruso (an italian sartoria responsible for the ready-to-wear line of many famous houses like Francesco Smalto​,​ Cifonelli​,​ or Ralph Lauren)​,​ this sportcoat is the definition of an era: slim cut​,​ peak lapels​,​ excellent fabric and construction. It belongs to the 2005 Spring-Summer collection​,​ simply called "(Untitled)". Beck was the runway artist​,​ and it was the height of Dior's influence on the world of men's fashion. Contrary to popular belief​,​ you can wear a black sportcoat. You can pair it similarly to a navy blazer​,​ with chinos​,​ linen or wool trousers​,​ in shades of blue​,​ brown​,​ grey​,​ or white. You can even try other colours like green or even pastels​,​ as long as the fabric is of good quality. This sportcoat is perfect for a size 34 UK or 44 EU​,​ for someone between 1m75 and 1m80. Here are the measurements: Shoulders: 39​,​5​​cm Sleeve length: 65cm (with 4cm of fabric to let out) Chest: 44​,​5cm Waist at button: 42cm Jacket length: 78cm (collar included​​​​,​​​​ with 2cm of fabric to let out) Lapels: 9cm The quality is equivalent to Belvest​,​ Boglioli​​,​ Brioni​,​ Canali​​,​ Cifonelli (RTW)​,​ Corneliani​​,​ Francesco Smalto (RTW)​,​ Gucci​,​ Hermès​,​ Pal Zileri​​,​ Paul Stuart​​,​ Ralph Lauren​,​ Ravazzolo​​,​ Ring Jacket​​,​ Valentino​,​ Ermenegildo Zegna Possible to try it in Paris 16th Arrondissement
