RTW Brioni Adige Pure Cashmere Navy Coat - 38​​/​​48R

Description

Brioni is​​,​ with Kiton and Attolini​​,​ the pinnacle of luxury in ready-to-wear and as close to bespoke as you can get off-the-rack. It is the garment of celebrities like Brad Pitt​​,​ Anthony Hopkins and Christian Bale​​,​ as well as two James Bond (Pierce Brosnan in all four films​​,​ and Daniel Craig in Casino Royale). Brioni was founded in Rome in 1945 by Nazareno Fonticoli and Gaetano Savini​​,​ with their first shop Via Barberini. The name comes from the Brionian islands​​,​ the destination of choice for the Italian high-society at the beginning of the 20th century. Brioni is renowned for their use of colours​​,​ a softer cut than British tailoring​​,​ and a slimmer shape. The suit is a second skin​​,​ while still imposing respect with the famous Roman shoulder (not as structured as Savile Row​​,​ without the extravaganza of the Neapolitan). Brioni was the first company to introduce a menswear fashion show in 1952​​,​ in Florence​​,​ and the start of the Pitti Uomo. In 1959​​,​ they launched the first ready-to-wear Couture line with their factory in Penne​​,​ Abruzzo​​,​ the birthplace of Fonticoli. They proved you can create a garment in a factory​​,​ without losing the quality and precision of bespoke suitmaking. They also created the concept of Trunk show​​,​ where they would visit a city for a period of time to showcase their work and take orders from clients who could not go to Rome. During the 1950's and 1960's​​,​ the Italian jet set and Hollywood celebrities all went to Brioni​​,​ from Clark Gable to John Wayne​​,​ as well as Marcello Mastroianni and Cary Grant. Now owned by Kering​​,​ Brioni is still made with the highest standards and has celebrated their 75th anniversary in Florence in 2020. I propose a classic Brioni coat for winter and early spring. Made in pure cashmere​​,​ this navy coat is a great example of Brioni's style. Refined yet subtle​,​ it is the perfect garment over your best suit or heavy knitwear for a more casual look. The cut is slim-fitted​​,​ without the excess of other luxury houses. It is fully handmade​​​​​,​​​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​​​,​​​​​ from the shoulder to the collar. Such piece would cost you off-the-rack around 8000 euros. It is in excellent condition. The coat is best fitted for someone with a strong 36UK​​​​/​​​​​46FR​​,​ or a slim 38UK​​/​​48FR size​​,​ around 1m75 to 1m85. Here are the measurements Shoulders: 44cm Sleeve length: 62cm (with 4cm of fabric to let out) Chest: 49cm Waist at button: 48cm Coat length: 110cm (collar included​​​​,​​​​ with 4cm of fabric to let out) Lapels: 10cm Quality equivalent to the following houses: Cesare Attolini​​​​,​​​​ Cifonelli (RTW)​​​​,​​​​ Ermenegildo Zegna (Su Misura)​​​​,​​​​ Isaia (Red Coral Line)​​​​,​​​​ Kiton​​​​,​​​​ Liverano & Liverano​​​​,​​​​ Loro Piana​​​​,​​​​ Ralph Lauren (Purple Label)​​​​,​​​​ Santandrea (Saint Andrews)​​​​,​​​​ Stefano Ricci​​​,​​​ Tom Ford​​​​,​​​​ Zilli
