This season’s bespoke piece I had made was inspired from when I was 12 years old. I lived in Haiti at that time and went to a school that had uniforms. While the color was different, the foundation was the same - hot weather and clothing that looked good. Haiti was my introduction to bespoke, while the tailoring may not be as recognized and intricate as in Italy, it still encourages, and presents an avenue for many who love the art.
I had this piece made for my travels to Florence, Italy. I knew June weather in Florence was unforgiving and while all the chaps would be wearing suits (and sweating), I decided to have a piece made that would be just as sharp as all the suits being worn in Florence, but more comfortable in terms of weather- CASUAL FLY at it’s best..
