Brunello Cucinelli:

My style icon is a theoretical mix of three men: the Prince of Wales, a man who loves a good jacket and has such amazing manners; John F Kennedy, whose Bostonian style was very appealing; and Gianni Agnelli, who was the master of individual style – a white sweater round the shoulders of a navy polo-shirt, a shirt and round-necked cashmere sweater with a tie on top, the watch outside the cuff. I never copy such details because they were his alone. All these icons are mature – the young are into fashion, not timeless style.


My personal style signifier is my own version of the suit – a very fitted jacket, which I would call one-and-a-half breasted because a double-breasted jacket is wider cut, in lightweight cashmere and lightly structured with typically Italian details like a four-button cuff, two undone. The back is also very fitted – I believe a man’s jacket should show the shape of his chest and his bottom. I have matching trousers for formal occasions but mostly I wear a jacket with cargo pants. I always wear a white button-down shirt with the collar buttons undone, a plain cashmere tie and silk pocket handkerchief.


My favourite website? I don’t have one, as I rarely use the internet. I prefer personal contact and recommendations.
