As the leaves start to change colour and a chill fills the air, it’s time to start thinking about your autumn wardrobe. Earthy tones, cosy fabrics and statement pieces are key for nailing that fall look, and there’s no better place to start than with some of the top Italian brands.
And, don’t worry, this is not your typical Armani, Gucci, Prada, Versace, Fendi Italian fashion houses kind of guide. But we have listed those below if you want to check them out.
I’ve personally handpicked some of my favourite Italian luxury brands that might not be as commonly known, but will most definitely add more than a touch of Made in Italy quality to your harvest-season wardrobe.
So, without further ado, here are my favourite Italian fashion brands to wear this autumn.
- Luca Faloni
- Pini Parma
Bask In Finest Cashmere With Luca Faloni
As the temperatures start to dip, a cosy sweater is a must-have item in any man’s wardrobe.
Luca Faloni is a luxury menswear brand that specializes in high-quality knitwear.
Their sweaters are made from the finest Cariaggi fine yarns, ensuring that you’ll stay warm and cosy in silk-cashmere all season long.
And with a range of styles available, including cable knits, V-necks, cardigans, and zip-ups, you’re sure to find the perfect sweater to match with a shirt and jeans or your favourite blazer.
Looking to add a touch of Italian flair to your casual formalwear? Here are my recommendations:
- Pure Cashmere Cable Knit Zip-Up
- Chunky Knit Cashmere Cardigan
- Fine Silk-Cashmere V Neck
Make A Statement With Pini Parma’s Luxurious Trousers
What I love about Pini Parma is that their trousers manage to make any man look good. It’s true.
Doesn’t matter if you’re short, tall, skinny, or chubby. Young, old, rich or living check-to-check. Pini Parma’s impeccable tailoring will have you looking dashing no matter what.
Their trousers (and jeans, too) are made from the finest fabrics you’ve ever felt (even their corduroy rocks), so not only will you look good, but you’ll also be warm even when those autumn winds start to pick up.
To add a dash of dapper to your look, I’d dress you in these:
- Brown Flannel “Soragna Capsule Collection” Trousers
- Beige Cotton Biella Trousers
- White Cotton Stretch “Soragna Capsule Collection” Trousers
Leave Them Speechless In Your Tailored Brioni
Okay, I get it, Brioni costs an arm and a leg. But, trust me when I say that the soft tailoring in their suits are worth every single meal you’d miss.
Their suits are the epitome of Italian style and luxury. They’re handcrafted from start to finish by some of the best tailors in the business, using only the finest fabrics money can buy.
And, if you’re looking for a truly bespoke suit that’s made just for you, then Brioni is absolutely the way to go.
Looking sharp doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but in this case, it kind of does. Here are my top picks from Brioni:
- Brown Super 150’s Virgin Wool And Silk Brunico Suit
- Royal Blue Super 200’s Virgin Wool Brunico Suit
- Beige Pre-Couture Cotton And Cashmere Suit
Keep Cosy In Canali’s Top-Shelf Outerwear
Fall is the perfect time to invest in some good quality outerwear, and there’s no better brand to do that with than Canali. At least if you dig the whole old-money-skeet-shooting-in-the-backyard vibe.
They’ve got a range of jackets, coats and vests that are sure to keep you warm all autumn long, whether you’re braving the cold or just enjoying a crisp autumn day walk.
The thing that gets me the most excited about Canali, though, is their price point.
They’re not mind-bogglingly expensive like some of the other brands on this list, but they’re still very much a high-end luxury brand.
With that in mind, here’s what I’d spend my money on:
- Two-Tone Wool And Silk Blouson
- Blue Double-Breasted Peacoat
- Blue Light Quilted Fied Jacket
Strut Proudly In Your Velasca Leather Shoes
In all honesty, I’d die without mocha suede Chelsea boots. But then again, I’m really feeling the monk straps this season. There’s just something about a well-crafted pair of designer leather shoes that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. But, enough about me.
And when it comes to Italian leather shoes, there’s no better brand than Velasca. You just can’t beat this price to quality. Also, you can’t beat their range. They’re like Nike, but for grown-ass men.
So, if you’re looking for a new pair of shoes to help you get through the autumn months, whether that’s oxfords, loafers or laced shin-high boots; Velasca has got you covered.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a harder time coming up with a list of just three items, but here goes:
- Castagnatt Double-Monk Calf Leather Shoes
- Bersalier Suede Calf Leather Chelsea Boots
- Trombee Smooth Calf Leather Oxford Shoes
Keep Your Head Dry With A Borsalino Hat
While some will argue that hats are out of style – I beg to differ. I think a well-crafted hat can really top off any outfit.
And when it comes to hats, there’s no better brand than Borsalino. They’ve been around for over 150 years, so you know, they know a thing or two about this whole thing.
Borsalino makes a range of different hats, from trilbys to golf caps. But, my personal favourite is their fedoras. A perfect mix of sophisticated and stylish.
So, if you’re looking for a new hat to help you keep your head dry this fall, I’d definitely recommend checking out these three:
- Country Alessandria Felt Fedora
- The Bogart By Borsalino Cut 2
- Folar Large Brim
Garnish Your Fit With Rubinacci Accessories
No outfit is complete with a few accessories; especially if you want to turn some heads.
And when it comes to accessories, there’s no better brand than Rubinacci. They make a range of different accessories, from ties and pocket squares to scarves and cuff links.
They offer a few bracelets, too, although personally, I would pay them no mind. They’re overpriced and quite frankly – boring. Stick with cravats and pocket squares.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a new accessory to help you spruce up your fall wardrobe, I’d definitely recommend checking out these three:
- Silk Twill Brown Tie With Floral Print
- Armi Lilac Pocket Square
- Silk Twill Bordeaux Tie With Geometric Print
So, are you ready to take your fall wardrobe to the primo level? With these Italian clothing brands – nessun problema!
Just make sure you have enough cash – these things don’t come cheap. But, hey, you’re worth it. You deserve these!
Why are Italian brands so popular?
Italian fashion is known for high quality materials and attention to detail, with luxury brands producing outstanding excellence in clothing, footwear and accessories. Italian craftmanship is unrivalled, particularly in leather shoes and handbags, and sartorial tailoring.
What does Made in Italy mean?
The Made in Italy merchandising mark shows that a product is fully Italian made, including design, manufacturing and packing. It indicates high quality and authenticity and can only be added to garments when they have a certified Italian origin.
