Diplomatic Ties 300: Petronius (for Al Bazar)

By Daniel Blockert|October 24, 2015|Diplomatic Ties - The Series|0 comments

As you saw in the previous post, I recently visited Al Bazar where I bought a jacket. Lino Ieluzzi also picked out a matching tie and ps. The jacket is Al Bazar’s house brand, made from a lovely thick British wool fabric. The shirt is an Isaia, pants from Boss, shoes from Allen Edmonds and bracelets from Viola Milano and Punkmonsieur. The tie is cashmere and made by Petronius for Al Bazar and as you can see it has another signature of Lino’s, the embroidered lucky number 7.   Click on the headline to see more pictures.  

At Al Bazar in Milano

A couple of days ago I was fortunate to have the chance to visit the classic menswear store Al Bazar in Milano, and it’s legendary owner Lino Ieluzzi (and his excellent staff, not least Gianpaolo who helped me around the store). Since Lino’s trademark is the double breasted jacket, I took the opportunity to get my first double breasted myself. As you can see from the picture with Lino in Al Bazar, I was not dressed for the occasion at that time… See next post to get better pictures of the jacket.
