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 Anglo-inspired Eton suits.
The jacket is cut from a beautifully lightweight wool in a lovely classic black and white birdseye weave this gorgeous jacket features hacking pockets, a fully functional ticket pocket, and twin vents--all nods to the English sporting heritage that Italian tailors often admire, and give a less stuffy and structured twist. The jacket has has a lovely 3/2 lapel roll--a nod to the Italian love of Ivy--and subtle darts.
It has very natural, unstructured shoulders.
The jacket features pick stitching throughout, and the four button cuffs are fully functional. The sleeves are lined for ease of use, but the body of the jacket is unlined, and largely unstructured. It features an angled well chest pocket on the interior, as well as an upright chest pocket.
The trousers are flat-front and cuffed; they have a fly button and additional tabs and buttons for fastening at the waist.
This suit was, of course, made in Gambara, Italy. It is in absolutely excellent condition, and comes complete with its unopened set of spare buttons.
Asking just $125, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. International offers very welcome, with shipping at reduced cost.
