Boglioli have been operating a family tailoring firm in the same facility in Gambara, Italy, since 1974--although they were established as a family-run business in the early 1900s--but it wasn't until Pierluigi Boglioli joined the family business that they started to innovate and become one of the leading Italian menswear brands, famous for their unstructured tailoring and use of garment washing to dye luxurious fabrics, giving them a distinctively elegant yet casual look.
It's not surprising that Boglioli were among the pioneers of dressed-down tailoring. And they mean just what they say--their clothes are TAILORED clothes, but built in such a way as to eliminate most of the structuring so that they have an exceptionally elegant drape and silhouette.
This is one of Boglioli's signature K Jackets. Cut with a three button front and twin vent, the top button has an execeptionlaly elegant curl. The jacket features contrast pick stitching throughout, and the fourbutton cuffs are fully functional. The sleeves are lined for ease of use, but the body of the jacket is unlined, and largely unstructured. The jacket features patch pockets, and is a gorgeous shimmering slate-blue; the wool is a lovely herringbone twill. It features an angled well chest pocket.
This jacket was, of course, made in Gambara, Italy. It is in absolutely excellent condition.
