First Look: L.B.M. 1911 F/W 2011

When we last saw L.B.M. 1911 Josh Peskowitz was raving about their unconstructed sportcoats and blazers.  For those unaware, L.B.M. 1911 is the more "casual" (in the Italian sense, of course) collection by the Mantova based tailoring house Lubiam.  Founded in 1911 by Luigi Bianchi, Lubiam has been making some of the finest tailored tailored clothing in Italy for 100 years.  F/W 2011, and L.B.M. 1911 in general, is all about deconstructing the blazer as much as possible - it's the definition of dressed down tailoring.  Honestly, these jackets are probably more analogous to the shirts and knits you already have in your wardrobe.  The L.B.M. 1911 F/W 2011 shots below embody the majority of the ideas I've been pushing on this blog for a while now - mainly, casually dressing down sportcoats and blazers for every day wear.  The styling below even brings to mind some of the heritage trends currently dominating the American menswear market.  I guess that traces itself back to L.B.M. 1911's penchant for pushing the envelope considering many Italian tailoring houses have refused to acknowledge this movement.  I know this look isn't for everyone, but it's something I think we can all appreciate, especially considering the sheer workmanship put into these pieces.

  3. Great styling in my opinion as well as the cuts. It's nice to see fitted trousers tucked into what appears to be a military boot. Nice use of patterns on the jackets combined with the color schemes of the rest of pieces. I hear what Mordechai is saying in regards to that it does look over styled but I like to think when dressing for winter you can have some leeway if you choose to go this route and add some details but then again THIS IS SUPER STYLIN'!!

  10. What's up everyone...

    This line is crazy good. The fits are unbelievable and the fabrics are awesome. Not to shamelessly plug myself, but I wrote a long piece on the history of this brand for my store blog. I'm not gonna spam you by posting a link here, but I will say thanks to Annonymous for shouting out my store in Chicago. We're actually creating a line of suits with them for Fall '11 right now.

    Keep up the good work. You're always the first blog to have the hot new stuff.

  11. In NYC HOTOVELI (271 West 4th Street) carries a wide range of L.B.M.1911 soft jackets. I bought a washed cashmere jacket last fall - what a fantastic piece... will be looking for more...

  12. Are you fucking kidding with this? DUDE HAS LEG WARMERS OVER HIS JACKET. Do you just automatically blog every PR release that ends up in your inbox? I can't believe people actually take you seriously brah

  13. Hello all. To each his own, I say. No need for hate. Those aren't leg warmers Mr. no name, but if they were they were made to look pretty sweet in this photoshoot. My opinion is the styling is on point and the clothes look amazing. I feel that would be the general consensus for those who aren't bound by tradition and pay attention to detail.

  14. I think these looks fantastic, and no I would not go for the gloves in look #3.

    One does not have to like it just because it's on a sartorial blog... Note the hatred comments are all anonymous. Plain dumb.

    Some good pieces that I wouldnt mind wearing at all. But the Boglioli stuff is probably up first.

  16. Boglioli is too rich for my blood; who wants to pay $2,000 for a linen blazer??? And it's too classic for me; LBM has a sizzle!
