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.

In this time of deep economical and social crisis reading a good news makes me breathe a sigh of relief.
Yesterday I read that Brunello Cucinelli, the Italian king of cashmere, has decided to turn his share part of the profits of the company to his workers. It’s about five million euros, more than 6,000 euros for each of the 783 employees.
