Fabio d’Angelantonio was a 23-year-old student in Rome when he fell in love with Loro Piana, the premium wool and textile brand that specialises in clothing so soft you want to spend all day stroking it.
Keen to have a suit made, d’Angelantonio drove for seven hours from Rome to Loro Piana’s HQ in Quarona to be measured by its in-house tailor. “It was a new universe of effortless style for me, it was paradise,” he tells EDGAR. “I still remember how I was treated with good manners, and manners matter. I was from a normal middle-class family but I walked out of there feeling like a king.”
