On the Street.... Gianluca Bocache, Rome

Finally I found A great mens shop in Rome!

Run by Gianluca Bocache (above) and Andrea Luparelli, the shop is super chic and specializes in custom suits and shoes. I hate to admit it but I always judge a shop by the owners and these guys are cool. I love a peak lapel suit, however the question is always one or two-button. I always go peak with one-button but I'm swayed by Gianluca's two-button swagger.

Unfortuneately my shooting schedule in Rome was so tight (made worse by the never ending rain) I wasn't able to shoot the shop but it will give me a reason to return to Rome asap.

If you find yourself in the Eternal City here is their shop info.
Via di Ripetta, 38
00186 Roma

Very italian style.. Loving the navy with pinstripe


Blogger "Guppy" Honaker said ... (9:13 PM) : 

Rare (sadly) are the times I have a "WOW" moment when I see clothing these days. But I have to say, this guy's suit coat is one of them.

That stunning blue (with white pinstripes) against his black hair, dark eyes and black tie with a white shirt. WOW. Fantastic, great-looking without being "over the top" like so many styles.

Never underestimate the power of a well-tailored suit.

I hope you found yourself a good suit. I like the color the silk handkerchief brings to the photo xxx


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:19 AM) : 

I noticed that his shoulder appears to be rimpled, is this for design? Or is that just how it breaks in? Either way it looks good.


Anonymous Gene said ... (12:21 AM) : 

Nice but there are tucks in the head of the sleeve!

Love that pochette!!


Anonymous The Social Tailor said ... (9:52 AM) : 

This idea of a double breasted lapel on a single breasted jacket still doesn't work for me... trying too hard comes to mind.
Loving the cut-away collar on the shirt and the sharp tie - nice work.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:11 AM) : 

There is a reason men should keep their hands out of their pockets.
Sweet face, but the look is nothing special. Except for the pocket square that is playfully, not square.

I never comment on your site, but hot damn!! he is damn good looking!


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (11:47 PM) : 

I had a suit like this in '77, but it was a navy pinstripe. I like the idea of a peak lapel on a single-breasted jacket, but only for certain really dressy occasions. This guy cuts quite the bella figura - kind of an Italian James Bond. The spread of the collar, and the width of the tie - looks like 3.75" - are perfectly proportioned with the lapels.


Blogger Moi said ... (12:07 PM) : 

Oh!? There's a suit in this picture?

Dear Number Two: Your navy tie is melting my heart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:11 PM) : 

as usually too elegant...the really curious thing is that usually Gian Luca is more elegant than in this pic....who knows the sartoria ripense and bought a suit there....will never change anymore tailor and, above all, made-to-mesure shoes made by shoemakers Bocache & Salvucci.... it is without doubt the best tailor in Rome

That dusty blue suit matched with the navy tie is striking.
