Style Profile…..Pino Vaghi, Luigi Borrelli

I’ve known Pino Vaghi, General Manager of Luigi Borrelli, for a while and I have always been impressed with his humor and style. Come to think of it, that is also the way I would describe Cary Grant.

If business success is all about the people, then Luigi Borrelli LLC is building for big profits. Borrelli is aggressively expanding it product offerings (sportswear, outerwear) and with a group of Sartorialists like Pino, Giuseppe de Corato and David Anicich heading up the U.S. efforts then I clearly imagine that I will soon be wearing Borrelli every hour of the day.

Pino recently answered a few questions about his personal style for The Sartorialist.

    i think it’s great how down to earth he seems to be (and i’m sure he is). a lack of pretension for sure!

    And it sounds like he’s got a wicked sense of humor with a bit of an edge for such a chic looking man!

    I wore a suit for the first time ever 2 night s ago (I’m 39). I then found this site, and both experiences have inspired me to start wearing them daily. I must have ben under a rock the past 20 years …now I just gotta get the vintage bike to inspire a picture from you as I bike to work through the meatpacking district …
