Lunch last week at the beautiful Milan apartment of Beppe Modenese!


Great to listen to his stories about the beginning of Milan’s emergence on the international fashion scene (thanks, in large part, to Beppe’s efforts, not that he would ever admit it).

    Ah, finally, a suit that fits. Not one you need to remove with a can opener. Applause!

    Amazing taste. Putting together suits seems to bea genetic thing with Italians. Either that or their tailors are better.

    A direct, warm, wonderful smile and an impeccable suit speak volumes for how he honours your presence.

    If it were me, I would definitely have this picture framed. Such a lovely moment.

    So, here’s a gentleman who does not need to prove anything to anyone and who shows respect first to himself and to those surrounding him with his choice of clothes. I love that almost in all the photos the Sartorialist has taken of him, his tie and pochette colours/patterns clash in a beautiful way. And then, how regal is this wonderfully plush armchair?

    I love this photo and the Sartorialist’s commentary underneath: both. Here are a few ideas for future posts (forgive me & feel free to reject): 1 Mr Modenese’s brief comments on future Sartorialist posts or archival posts. 2 A photo of the Sartorialist and Mr Modenese together. 3 Mr Modenese’s comments on important figures in fashion combined with historical photos of them: eg what does he recall of Mrs Vreeland? Cristobal Balenciaga? Yves St Laurent? Thanks for posting.
