Dresden Ramos (@dapper_tenor) is a renowned classical tenor with a strong passion for menswear.
He mentioned his plans to attend the winter edition of Pitti Uomo and expressed a preference for something that would complement the overall vibe of the event and the weather in Florence at that time.
Inspired by the mild Italian winter, Dresden decided to go with a striped flannel suit, adding a modern twist to a classic. We included a double-breasted waistcoat to keep him warm during the crisp Italian winter nights. Additionally, a luxurious brown wool and cashmere Polo Coat served as the finishing touch.
In Dresden’s words:
“My vision is to wear an ensemble that would be different yet still classic. A look that is refined, crisp and with subtle elegance. I was sure about the three piece suit with Neapolitan shoulders and Oliver guided me to the whole process. For the fabric, I was choosing between a navy with brown stripes and the gray with cream stripes. Italian gentlemen are known to use the navy suit almost like a uniform, which I understand because it is elegant, so I went for the gray one instead. It’s a flannel by Reda 1865 . The polo coat should be something that would compliment but also give a nice contrast to the suit. We chose a dark brown wool and cashmere fabric by Drago. For a subtle flair, I picked a patterned tie with some burgundy and warm yellow colors for a nice contrast.
The shoes is an exotic one. It’s an alligator horsebit loafers in light brown to match the stripes of the suit. I would say the whole look received compliments at the fair. Some tailors from London mentioned the fine lines and details at the back of the overcoat and the construction of the suit.
