1917

1917 image

I have always been a sucker for a World War genre film. I love a man in uniform (for purely sartorial reasons), it could be The Great Escape, Dunkirk or Guns of Navarone. I have seen them all countless times. So I was looking forward to seeing 1917.

The premise is simple: Two young British soldiers during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldiers' brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.

Visually it is amazing, excellent cinematography and direction including some great single frame take that capture the chaos, brutality and pointlessness of War very well.

Pitti Uomo 97 has just wrapped up in Florence for another season and we had a team there working with our existing network of Artisans and Suppliers. 

Here are some of Johns top observations of what he saw over the course of the week and what trends in men's fashion we can look forward to this Winter.

Hello, hello, I'm Back Again.

After an indecent amount of time away ( at least by online standards) I am back on the blog.

Crane Brothers Est 1999

20 years seemed like a long enough time to wait to add the words established in 1999 to our name.
