Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, the inside contains both mozzarella and cream, giving it a soft texture. It’s served fresh at room temperature. It’s a typical product of the Murgie in Puglia in Southern Italy, made from buffalo’s and/or cow’s milk, rennet, and cream. It was first made around 1920 or possibly 1900 on the Bianchini farm in Andria and became more widely available in the 1950’s when cheese factories began producing it. When it is sliced open, ritagli-thickened panna (cream) flows out. The cheese has a rich, buttery flavor. It’s best eaten within 24 hours, and is considered past its prime after 48 hours. Served with salad, prosciutto crudo, crusty bread, fresh tomatoes with olive oil and black pepper, or pasta.

Hmmmm…

Tomorrow is Totore’s birthday, and there a few people I love more than this man. Seven months my junior, born a world away, he is anyway my brother.
I have inhabited a world of late where those I am closest to, those I most want to support, have gone out of their way to make me feel unworthy, a lesser man for not being as perfect, for not being one of the beautiful people. The industry we work in is hard - it is vain, narcissistic, cliquey, quick to pass judgement, yet throughout it all, I have known few as loyal as Toto, nobody quicker to give me words of encouragement, a stick to beat those black dogs away.
So on his birthday, I wish I was in Napoli to treat this man to dinner, to remind him that more than talent, more than chance, his dedication to his work has made him someone exceptional. If nothing more, it has made him my brother, although I know it has made him much more than that.
Totore - I will eat a burger for you tomorrow, with extra mayo, and look forward to seeing you again soon. Happy birthday, mio fratello.

Sciamàt SS15 Pitti Preview

On the brink of sartorial perfection…that’s my interpretation of Nicola and Valentino Ricci’s creations. The only real reason I don’t call them embodied perfection, is due to my inherent way of being that compels me to believe that there’s always room for improvement, however little it may be. The truth is that apart from slight taste subtleties, that might lead you to question whether those outstanding peak lapels should be 1cm narrower or wider, or what particular color stripe you wished to see in that windowpane fabric, there’s really nothing else you can beg to differ when it comes to Sciamàt.

Showcasing a fully handmade ready-to-wear line, the cut, fit and proportion were spot on. From the impeccable artisanal construction and true attention to the slightest detail, up to the choice of fabrics and color palette, each garment on display rightfully deserved a place in every sartorial aficionado’s wardrobe (myself very much included). When you consider that besides these offerings they are able to provide you with some of the finest bespoke creations out there, there’s not much more you could ask for..

Driving Dreams - Crowd funding

Before industry there was passion. “Industry of all industries”, car industry is the most complex of them all. It’s the largest wheel in national economies. Car industry is privilege of the most powerful countries in the world. Toyota is the largest company in Asia and Fiat creates 4.4% of Italian GDP. Huge and important it’s inevitably conservative and boring, but au contraire to industries of similar size, it has the most emotional product. For generations people are dreaming about cars. Speed, control and power drag people to second largest purchase in life, after apartment / house. Almost everything we know about we conclude unconsciously from its design. People work their asses off to buy a supercar they only saw on internet. Ultra sports and luxury brands have army of devotees who never droved objects of their desire.

Pitti Uomo 86 Orazio Luciano - La Vera Sartoria Napoletana

After many years of service at Kiton and Isaia Orazio decided to follow his dream to start an own company, La Vera Sartoria Napoletana, the real Neapolitan tailoring.

Orazio Luciano La Vera Sartoria Napoletana was actually founded in the early 90’s. Thanks to Orazio’s business partner and son, Pino Luciano, the brand reached out to businessmen and people with an more appetite for a high-class lifestyle. Making the jackets slimmer and more lightweight also attracted a lot of attention for the brand among these customers. This is the brands signature, more known as the unconstructed jacket. All the details are there, the Neapolitan shoulder without padding, the vintage fabrics, patch pockets, AMF-stitching and most of the time no lining at all. And let’s not forget about about that all the handwork that’s done with the products, most of the tailoring are made completely by hand.

La Vera Sartoria Napoletana offer both ready to wear and made to measure and pricing starts at € 2000. It’s not bespoke but it’s close to it, both with the attention to all the details and the fitting is superb.

Great Sartoria…
