As I personally favor both (loafers without socks and roll necks), on Saturday I decided to combine them into one outfit. Always there is no need for puffy or striking pocket square.

Luigi Bianchi Mantova F/W ´14

For many Luigi Bianchi Mantova of Lubiam is not as well known as LBM1911-brand but the line’s collections for sure has the required characteristics to satisfy the needs of even a more demanding customer looking for pieces to fill one’s business-wardrobe.

Lubiam F/W ´14 @ Pitti Uomo 85

L.B.M 1911 Collection for next fall and winter by Italian Lubiam is definitely characterized by multiple different angles - making it interesting by balancing between delicate & bold and fun & rigor at the same time, mixing strong colors with lighter hues and pastel shades and piecing together different paterns, fabrics and personalizing treatments. Casentino is still strong, for the next fall also in sport coats and blazers and in multiple color choices. One of the most striking pieces in the collection was surely the purple double-breasted casentino jacket as seen above. Red was a dominating color as well. Lubiam also had came up with some really nice weaved patterns and cloths such  as bouclé and knop textures that will make the...
