THE STAT SHEET: BELLUCCI NAPOLI FIELD BLAZER
Try and forget that we’re still slogging through the dog days of summer for a moment: it’s time to start thinking about fall.
And this handsome navy blue number from bespokery Bellucci Napoli—that’s half field coat, half blazer and everything you’ll need to get you through the next couple months—just happens to be on sale exclusively through our friends at UrbanDaddy Perks right now. (It’s almost like they planned it that way.)
Here’s what else you need to know…
The Story: You’ve probably only heard of Bellucci Napoli if you’ve been traveling in the right circles—or traveled 18 floors upward, to their NYC haberdashery perched high above the hustle of Madison Avenue. Or, of course, if you’re reading this Stat Sheet right now. Consider yourselves introduced.
Who to Channel: If Marcello Mastroianni had played Woody Allen’s character in Annie Hall; an officer-and-gentleman type of outdoorsman who won’t wear anything not made by an Italian tailor; a particularly fashion-forward professor who’s forsaken tweed but still wants a blazer with elbow patches.
When to Wear It: Anytime this fall. Flip the lapel up during more daring weekend adventuring, then fold it back down once you’re back in town.
Think of This As: Your weather-resistant answer to the navy blazer.
Nedo Bellucci for Forbes Life Magazine
by Franco Vogt
I had the real pleasure recently to photograph a fellow Neapolitan from the convenience of NYC. Nedo Bellucci is the craftsman behind his namesake atelier, Bellucci Napoli, a custom suit and shirt maker in his castle above 57st street. On the day of our shoot he was very accomodating and very relaxed and allowed me to shoot several setups. His place was like a mens club, with dark woods and comfy leather seating. Complete with a bar and terrace. Those of you that know me, know that I have a softness for nice clothes, and let me tell you, I was eyeing some of the sportcoats. Beautiful fabrics and a summer lightness that make wearing them a pleasure rather then a chore. This was my first shoot for Forbes and they seemed to be happy, I certainly was. Nice to meet you Nedo, hope I can cross paths with you in the future.
