Gilded fabrics, brocade embellishments, oriental collars, velvet dress suits and silk smoking jackets came at the close of the show, an intelligent evolution of the occidental explorer look which opened.

Who says suits can't be exciting? If we were to take anything away from the show, it would be to invest in a velvet tuxedo jacket, seen across the board in Milan. And, whether or not you can afford one of Zegna's finest, be sure to invest in a bespoke suit, you won't regret it. For a reasonable (and relatively fast) option, try asuitthatfits.com
