Elegance in an Age of Crisis:  Fashions of the 1930s.

Source: thetrad.blogspot.com:

"Menswear saw both the Italian and British represented generously by loans from Rubinacci Napoli London House and Savile Row’s Davies and Son.  Luca Rubinacci and I stand together admiring a trench coat from his grandfather’s company which began in the early ’30s.  I point to the gorge of the collar and Luca tells me a story about his father’s obsession with collecting vintage London House for a family museum.

Handed down over three generations, his father acquires a Rubinacci white tie jacket made in the ’30s and most recently owned by a circus clown who patched it with bandana cloth. Luca tells his father to restore it but his father refuses telling his son, “I don’t want what it was —  I want what it became." So do I. "
