Unlucky For Some

We can thank the Italians for great menswear and tailoring and we can also thank them for Friday the 13th.

There is no written evidence of a "Friday the 13th" superstition existing before the 19th century.

The earliest known documented reference in English occurs in an 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini.

Rossini, like many Italians regarded Fridays as an unlucky day and thirteen as an unlucky number: he passed away on Friday 13th of November.
