Milano attraverso la bici
Vintage Menswear Illustrations.
One of the great bonuses of travelling to Milan to buy fabrics is the vintage section of the Milano Unica fabric fair. Although the focus is mainly on vintage women’s fashion, it’s possible to find some fantastic menswear references as well - like these amazing mid-century illustrations we found on our last trip!
The last page is particularly interesting - it’s the vintage equivalent of this blog - a guide for men to help them put together garments that work well with each other to create great outfits. Keep posted to check out the translation…
