thesartorialist Back in New York this morning sitting on my couch having an espresso from a cup very kindly gifted to me from the Grand Hotel et de Milan @ghoteletdemilan. I love my growing collection of espresso cups (tazzina?) from cafes ,and now hotels, around Italy. 3d

thesartorialist Big news in Milan! Pasticceria Marchesi 1824 is opening on via Montenapoleone almost directly across from Cova!! Obviously each brand is going to play on it's romantic history but I wonder what elements of their old school service and culture they will sacrifice to win this new battle. 4d

thesartorialist When you're shopping for silver at Dabbene in Milan (and who doesn't shop for silver at Dabbene) you get the added benefit of playing ball with this cute little guy. Playing ball with even the cutest little doggie in a shop with so many porcelain dishes seems to go against everything my mother taught me!! 6d

thesartorialist Giorgio Armani's first ad in Italian Vogue September 1974 announcing his first runway show on October 10th at 5:30 Ristorante Carminati. In the ad he explains that he will present his work for Hilton, Gibo, Montedoro, Sicons and Gabrielli for the first time under his own label. I can't think of another designer that had entered the fashion world in quite this manner. I imagine the negotiations between all those Italian brands must have been very delicate. I've never heard him discuss this part of his early career which is too bad because it really speaks to his business as well as his creative genius. @armani #Atribute 7d

thesartorialist This is Giorgio Armani modeling his own clothes in Italian Vogue November 1974. This is the text that accompanied it translated into English in the back of that issue "No doubt, this is the year of his debut, even if, strange as it may sound, when thinking of him that for years now is going full swing. Until yesterday, after all, he never showed his collections with his name. He kept away from the show-window. He allowed his collections to be shown with the labels of the firms with which he collaborated. But he could not miss a date with Milan, the new center of men's fashion. Finally he decided: he joined all his collections and introduced himself personally in the halls of the extremely old Carminati restaurant in the Piazza del Duomo for the Spring dress rehearsal." @armani #Atribute 1w

thesartorialist Christa and I in about 1994. I was wearing my new Emporio Armani black five-button suit!! 5-button was all the rage then. I loved that suit! Notice my grey linen shirt collar out over the suit lapel which was also very cool then. I think the pants were at least triple-pleated and very full which offset the very soft, natural shoulder jacket which felt like wearing a cardigan. Wearing this suit back then was the first time I ever felt really fashionable. Nice memories. 1w

thesartorialist This article in Vogue magazine back in the early 80s was the first to open my eyes to Giorgio Armani. It was the first time I had seen a designer/design portrayed in a serious way. I thought he looked so cool and I loved that he had a bicycle on the runway. Actually that bike added a lighthearted and sporty touch that made the Armani persona so intriguing to me. Next week I will go to Milan for the 40th anniversary party for Mr. Armani, over the next few days I will post some very cool photos from the very early days of Giorgio Armani! I think it will help you see the Armani mystique the way I did when I was young and how he turned that mystic into the design empire it is today. #Atribute @armani 1w

thesartorialist I get to vote for the Vanity Fair International Best-Dressed Poll! @vanityfair ! Some of my choices are obvious Beppe Modenese, Alessandro @alessandrosquarzi , Domenico @gianfrateshowroom, Caroline Isaa @caroissa , Rei Shito @reishito (ok they're all my friends but still pretty fantastically stylish!) but I'll have a few spaces left. Who else do you think I should write in?? 2w
