Hi, can you advise on the sizing of the woven leather loafers by Buttero? I want to get them but loafer sizing is often very tricky! Thanks!
Hi! Buttero sizing is bigger than most footwear brands. Loafers in particular tend to give in the most due to construction and the general use of soft leathers. I wear 42,5 for all buttero models, but for this particular loafer I would recommend sizing 1/2 down…For me the 42 would be ok after some wear and tear.
So, Tumblr just notified me that Beyond Fabric is now 4 years-old! I knew I’ve been running it for a while, but receiving that email made it official. Plus it brought back many memories of how long I’ve come since I began this life project.
It’s Happy Birthday to me and Beyond Fabric, but especially to all of you who have been following and supporting me during these last four years…I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to follow my dreams and my lifelong passion!
One of the most hyped events taking place during the latest edition of Pitti Uomo, was undoubtedly the debut of the Wooster + Lardini collaboration. Held on the amazing terrace of the Pitti Immagine Foundation, the presentation gathered some of the most renowned bloggers, magazines and fashion personalities, all thriving with anticipation to witness first hand what Wooster had in store for them.
After a brief presentation from the Lardini family, expressing their desire to deliver an updated, innovative take on the sartorial universe they are renowned for, Wooster quickly broke the ice with his trademark sense of humor. Blending his creative vision with the quality craftsmanship of the Italian brand, the collection was brought to life in a matter of weeks through a fluid brainstorm of concepts that were brilliantly executed.
Making the most of Lardini’s exceptional tailoring skills and research in manufacturing processes and garment treatments, the collaboration is exactly what one would expect from Wooster’s influence - a rugged, irreverent take on the sartorial universe, slightly hinting at imperfection. From color block and prints, up to tailored shorts and crinkled effects achieved through “unfinished” garment dye techniques, this refreshing approach definitely sets a new standard for Lardini. The subdued color palette of navy, grey, army green and khaki, further reinforces the balance of the classic/modern dichotomy.
