After work, Valentino ended falling into old habits. Following Bjorn to the local bar, and gaming parlour. While Bjorn left for home, Valentino stayed behind, finishing his drink. A little old feeling nudged at the back of his mind. That unbearable need to play a little game, just to relax for a while.
“Fit for a King” would be an accurate way to describe Sciamat’s bespoke works of art, even if the mannequins on display at their booth weren’t donning golden crowns. Carrying on what is considered by many as one of the most valuable tailoring legacies of recent years, the Ricci brothers once again presented their unique take on classic menswear and overall elegance. Despite the fewer pieces being showcased at the booth, as a result of another stand they were hosting at a nearby hotel, the essence of Sciamat was undeniably portrayed in each of their creations.
Spread across an array of tuxedos, 3-piece suits, sports jackets and overcoats, the trademark features of the tailoring house were unveiled in a most superb fashion: fully unlined construction, massive overlapping peak lapels, roped shoulders, luxurious fabrics and the utmost attention to the slightest details. All the unique requirements that make the process of owning a Sciamat garment that more exclusive and unique. Within a mostly subdued color palette comprised of grey, navy, black and the occasional brown, hints of plaid patterns and textured fabrics stood amidst the crowd.
Embodying the concepts of timeless elegance, the Ricci have been able to develop their unique approach to an ancient art, based on the knowledge of old but with a subtle artistic twist: in fact, it’s only when faced with such skilled craftsmanship and cut that you realize just how fundamental these concepts are in creating the most elegant of silhouettes. Whereas a solid navy or black suit are often regarded as too simplistic or uninteresting in most brands, when it comes to Sciamat, they represent the epitome of a gentleman’s uniform and of male classic elegance.
