One of the brands that we are very happy to feature on both our brick'n'mortar and web shop is Boglioli, a brand that during especially the last decade truly has shaped the way men consider suiting and blazers.
Founded early in the 20th century in Gambara, Brescia as one of many tailoring shops at the time, the company grew after the second world war to finally establish itself as a major player in the world of classic ready-to-wear tailoring during the fifties and sixties and growing into a larger manufacturer in the seventies. Starting in the late eighties and nineties, Boglioli evolved into the company we know today, largely by establishing its own brand and producing garments that rose to fame during the nougthies, with the shape, style and feeling many have grown to recognise and love – the unmistakable Boglioli look.
Fact is, that the attributes that once made Boglioli unique and helped to establish the idea of Italian soft, casual tailoring now is so prevalent in the menswear world that it is hard to see a modern haberdasher without it. The classic Boglioli look revolutionized the way that a modern gentleman dresses, pushing blazers from a formal garment to something that doubled as a jacket and was as comfortable as a soft cardigan. The fundamental ideas of this is the same today as it was twenty years ago, still putting Boglioli as a unique brand and manufacturer;
For the relaxed lightweight lived-in look that characterizes the brand, it is in fact more a matter of what is missing than what is added – by making a blazer or suit jacket without lining, removing the shoulder padding and taking it through a garment-washing process (as opposed to the normal procedure, where the fabric itself is treated before creating the garment) one receives a simple and comfortable construction with freedom of movement combined with a unique surface and finishing. In the shape, what is defining the typical Boglioli blazer is a somewhat shorter and slimmer body combined with roomy patch pockets, all taking the major direction of the garment away from the formal and more towards a broad range of uses and situations, opting for comfort and leisure but not removing the classic Italian elegance of soft tailoring.
The top-shelf line K-Jacket (launched in 2004) now is the staple with us, offering its legendary light- and suppleness in a multitude of fabric options, ranging from cotton suits in beautifully washed and faded cottons to sharp wool, linen and silk offerings.
