Abbey Road? Mind the zebra crossing: 



And make a beautiful pinstripe suit your main focus.

Abbey Road is forever associated with the Beatles, who gave it a special meaning precisely 50 years ago. In 1969, they made the road the setting for the cover of their 11th album. Those who love good music and traveling, are aware that the celebrated Abbey Road recording studios, established in 1931 and still in operation today, are located really close to that zebra crossing.

Georgian style, therefore, but not only: London is also the home of the British style we refer to when envisioning 1930s Victorian bankers, so unmistakably elegant in their chalk stripe pattern, which identified the origin of the various banks according to the stripes' width.

DAVIDE CENCI MEN'S PINSTRIPE SUIT REVISITS BRITISH TRADITION AND CLASSIC CHARCOAL GRAY.

The men's pinstripe suit is the first must-have garment of the season proposed by Davide Cenci: we revisit British tradition and the classic charcoal gray shade. The dark gray flannel gets lighter and has a more comfortable fit, still in line with the formality of the English banker and businessman, but with a modern twist. The look is refined, inspired by the official ‘working uniform’ of the old nobility and upper bourgeoisie in Great Britain (and Italy), with a very personal memory associated to the brand's founder, the Commendatore Davide Cenci, who used to wear that same suit of course in a heavier version.

A true star of sartorial heritage, the pinstripe suit is further updated with a stretch cotton jersey striped shirt and a silk reps striped tie. The formal appearance of the striped shirt harmonizes with the pleasure of wearing a fabric that perfectly adjusts to the body and its movements. Last century and ours blend in a time machine that Davide Cenci, searching incessantly for a constant thread within classic apparel, uses to pay homage to the suit's British roots, without forgoing the importance of the Italian craftsmanship and prestige.
