The Race

Starting June 16th inside Fortezza da Basso at 4.30 P.M, impeccably dressed models ride through the stunning city of Florence, showing what it means to really ride in style. All riders are monitored for style as well as pulse throughout. A high pulse or fashion fouls such as a sloppily worn necktie results in penalty time.

In Giro d’Stil winning is not about being first finisher. It’s about being the most fashionable.

Frasi by Simone Righi

Simone’s designs are best described as classics with a modern infusion. He relies on traditional, quality materials, the majority of which are made in Italy. ”I have, in many ways, held onto the fashion styles that were trendy when I was taught my clothes making skills thirty years ago. Classicaly tailored suits, coats and shirts by the best manufacturers.”

Gaiola Napoli

Starting from a careful selection of the finest fabrics, through a flawless care in the making, every garment by Gaiola is a promise of style and elegance. Solid traditional teachings look to the needs of contemporary costumers, with the added value of a family-run workshop.

Gant

For GANT, it all began with shirts and we’ve never stopped reinventing them. Born in 1949, it’s a shirt that is rich in legacy and history. The combination of our founder Bernard Gantmacher’s dedication to quality and his sons Marty and Elliot’s sense for style and business proved to be a winning formula.

L.B.M. 1911

Lubiam is one of the few Italian companies which is still run by the family of its founder, Luigi Bianchi, who in 1911 set up Primaria Sartoria Luigi Bianchi – menswear and women’s dresses and suits. Constantly committed to research, innovation and continuous experimenting, Lubiam has marked its 100th anniversary with success, establishing itself in Italy and the world as a company that continually reinvents itself and its hight quality products, without forgetting its own history and tradition.

Lardini

The collections bearing the Lardini label reveal all the excellence of the sartorial tradition of a unique land, rich in courage, passion and hands skilled in designing, cutting and giving shape to the beautiful: the Marches. The core values of the firm hinge on a creative entrepreneurial and stylistic policy, skilled workmanship, meticulous production and strict quality control, combined with major ongoing investments in research, development, innovation and training.

Oscar Jacobson

The better a garment suits you, the better it fits, the better it falls over your shoulders, the better it feels on your back, the more comfortable you become. That’s why Oscar Jacobson is very meticulous about details, fitting and tailoring the old way (with stitches rather than glue). When you feel what you are wearing, it seldom feels good. But when you don’t think about it, when you can walk, sit and move without having “something in the way”, that’s when you can relax. That’s when you can… “not give a damn”. And that’s how it feels wearing Oscar Jacobson – your invisible friend that lets you be you.

Sand Copenhagen

The design of the Danish Fashion house SAND is driven by passion, creativity and innovation. What started in the 80’s, until today grew into an international fashion brand. Cool Scandinavian silhouettes combined with southern European charm to maintain its provocative, sophisticated focus – SAND creates clothes for the way world citizens think, work and live. The overall philosophy behind the collection of SAND – whether it be for Men or Women – is a fine balance between the neo-classic and sophisticated up against the twisted and the quirky.

To us, creating fashion means being responsible for our actions and straightforward with our clients. Each and every collection is designed by our team to guarantee comfortable, attractive garments that respect the environment and animals.

Stenströms

Style, quality and comfort in every detail. This philosophy has made Stenströms one of Sweden’s most well-known and respected brands. The classic Stenströms shirt carries more than 100 years of tradition, craftsmanship and quality. Women’s blouses, knitted garments, accessories, boxer shorts and ties are now also included in our business concept. Now, we can look back on our first century as a design and fashion house. And even though we continue to grow, our attitude to quality always remains the same.

Tiger of Sweden

Today widely regarded a symbol of Scandinavian minimalist fashion, Tiger of Sweden’s history spans over more than a century. Born from the idea of reaching out to the customers instead of having them come to us, the customers got their suits faster and more easily than before without reduction in quality, the brand has kept evolving and redefining itself. Staying true to the philosophy ”A Different Cut”.

Victorinox
