Counting to three: the summer rules of men’s elegance


Lightness, lightness, lightness

Giving the same answer as many as three times is possible when replying to a precise question: what is the key rule of men’s elegance, especially in the warmer seasons? Lightness, lightness, lightness.

Also seen as a positive attitude to various aspects of life, tangible or not, and fully reflecting the upcoming season and climate: embrace lightness and lighter fabrics, teamed with high-tech materials for garments so light and comfortable you won’t feel you are wearing them.

And while in real estate the value of property is largely based upon its outstanding - and repeatedly emphasized - “Location, location, location”, also in men’s fashion the idea of heaviness and over-structure, thanks to a greater attention to research, is old-fashioned and outdated, and with the same determination of an estate agent showing property, lightness has become imperative.

FEELING AT EASE IN ONE’S CLOTHES MEANS BEING ABLE TO MOVE FREELY IN THEM, BECAUSE CLOTHES ARE NOT A CONSTRAINT.

Feeling at ease in one’s clothes especially means being able to move freely in them, because clothes are not a constraint or an armor. Enters the solaro fabric.

Recognizable thanks to the different hues that warp and woof weave, the solaro fabric captures the light, creating an iridescent sheen. A medium-weight fabric with a name that it’s easily associated with the sun (sole in Italian) that, in fact, was created also to block off UV rays.

The creation of the fabric dates back to the 20th century, which means in full colonialist expansion. The solaro is allegedly the first real technical fabric created by man, specifically by Louis Westenra Sambon, an important English - Italian doctor specialized in tropical medicine. Born in Milan and raised in Naples, he started working on this special fabric after carrying out a number of spectroscopy experiments.

The solaro suit proposed by Davide Cenci is unlined and unconstructed and has an informal feel to it, completed off with a crewneck sweater and sneakers, but it will look impeccable also on formal occasions.

Specifically, the suit is composed of a two-button jacket with flap pockets and double side vents plus flat-front pants. The Made in Italy crewneck sweater is crafted from natural Merino wool, while the sneakers, a new style by Church’s Retro, come in multicolored suede.
