Bespoken Word: Get To Know Boglioli’s Classic K Jacket

Our Menswear Contributor Guerre Discusses with David Newlove of Boglioli What It Is That Makes the K Jacket a Traveler's Best-Friend

As a company specializing in tailoring, Boglioli started manufacturing in the early 1900′s in Gambara, a small village nestled somewhere between Venice and Milan, Italy. Some 12 to 14 years ago, Boglioli started experimenting with garment dyeing (“tinto in capo”), a process that wasn’t new in menswear, but at the time was limited mainly to denim.

“No one had really pursued it in terms of men’s tailored clothing,” said David Newlove, Managing Director of Boglioli, with a proud and confident smile on his face, “especially with luxury fabrics such as those Boglioli uses.”

Twelve years ago, the brand introduced it’s iconic piece: The K Jacket – known in sartorial circles as the traveling man’s best friend; something you can use on both short or long trips, that won’t lose its shape as the day wears on. The brand oversees each process of the jacket making, starting with the limited number of mills it works with (half a dozen which are English, Scottish and two from Italy).

Boglioli is not your standard business jacket; there is no construction, no shoulder padding (“senza spallina”), no canvas, no chest piece. The jackets are light, feel luxurious, but most importantly, drape on the body and fits with noticeable panache. The customer that understands the beauty behind the brand is the creative type, the discerning gentleman and world traveler. This is the add-on to the man who understands dressing for success, but also lives the lifestyle associated with successful living. Even if you have to wear a traditional suit during the week, these pieces become the weekend favorites (and for a select few their weekday go-to pieces).

Two biggest revolutions in men’s tailoring include garment dyeing and deconstruction. While neither of these two things are new, Boglioli is a pioneer and a master in terms of bringing the two together in men’s luxury tailoring. This is not just a suit, it’s wearable art.
