Be Seen Bespoken

One of the joys of being the manager of Andrew Davis Bespoke is working with clients to see a vision come to life. The vision may be for a bespoke wedding or for your first professional job. I've had the experience of seeing a person’s confidence come to light and the motivation created by dressing well.

As a lifetime jazz musician and music lover, I approach each client without hard and fast rules. Bespoke clothing is spontaneity and creativity. I listen, react, improvise and create with my clients. Whether a bespoke suit or tuxedo for a wedding, or suits and sport coats for work, I find out where my clients want to be with their clothing and give greater value to their purchase.

Dress with the utmost discernment.

Luciano Barbera: A Life Guided By Friendship And Luck

“If I didn’t meet you, how could I be here telling you these things?” -Luciano Barbera The origin story of Luciano Barbera’s eponymous line of clothing feels very 21st century—even though it isn’t. As a young man and dapper dresser in the late ’60s and early ’70s, Barbera was often in spotted in custom-created suits, and admirers would inquire as to who made his clothing and where it was purchased.

It helped that Luciano was born into a fashion family: His father, Carlo Barbera, was the owner of a textile mill, so an appreciation for fine fabrics and thoughtful tailoring was there from the start.  Luciano set out to create his own timeless menswear collection—and that collection has kept him busy for the last 45 years.

The name Luciano Barbera continues to stand for quality, craftsmanship, and that quintessentially Italian concept of sprezzatura. That is, the quality of being confident but understated—not trying so hard.

The Spring/Summer 2016

Spring 2016 is inspired by the lush foliage and picturesque landscape of Biella – a mountainous Italian village, home to the Luciano Barbera brand – and reminds us that textures, prints and colors are most vibrant when mixed and layered.

VK Nagarani limited-edition sock designed to support Big Brothers Big Sisters

New York-based designer V.K. Nagrani will be at Andrew Davis Menswear’s spring Trunk Show, Thursday, February 23, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. to unveil an exclusive, limited-edition sock he designed as a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Nagrani is the founder of Ovadafut Hosiery Co., which manufactures luxury socks and underwear sold at select men’s retailers like Andrew Davis.

Andrew Davis is donating 50% of each sale of the Big Brothers Big Sisters sock to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

“Even if you’re a small company, it doesn’t matter,” Nagrani said. “You still have a responsibility to help out and do something creative. We all need to do our part.”

Nagrani’s company has custom-designed items for many charities, including a pink sock for breast cancer awareness and a camouflage sock for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Nagrani said this year’s design, inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop art, features four blocks, each bearing the hand sign for one of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ core values – confidence, competence, conscience and love.

Macey Dale, manager of Andrew Davis, hopes to see the socks fly off the shelves and he enlisted the help of Bloomington personalities who will be wearing the socks.

“Everybody wears socks, but, who would ever think that a simple pair of socks can make a huge difference in a child’s life, not just financially but also in raising awareness of such an amazing program,” said Tom Saccone, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters.  “Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.”

The cause is one that’s close to the designer’s heart. Nagrani, who worked as a substitute teacher when he started his company, knows first-hand the impact a strong role model can have on a child’s confidence, academic success and social development.

Macey Dale said Nagrani’s socks, which retail for $35 a pair, are popular with customers and Andrew Davis sells hundreds every year, including mailing customers in many states who can’t wait for the next design.

Research has shown involvement in the Big Brothers Big Sisters programs increases a child’s odds of succeeding in school, behaving nonviolently, avoiding drugs and alcohol, and breaking negative cycles.

Saccone said he hopes seeing men sporting the socks year-round will serve as a constant reminder to the community of the children served by the organization.

“If you think you’re too busy and you can’t mentor, you can buy these socks to support us, talk about us, advocate for us,” Saccone said. “We want to lift up and support more children in our community. Kids will find a model. We’ve got to ensure that they’ll find a positive role model. That’s what we’re all about.”
