The eminent The Rake Magazine held a dinner this January with twenty individuals which they concern the most influential within the world of sartorial dress at the moment. The Saman Amel team was taking part in this event and it was certainly an evening we will not forget anytime soon.
Coming back to Florence for the seventh time might sound as a routine. One thing that never becomes routine, however, is meeting new people. During one particular evening this time around we got to meet 18 individuals for a quite and intimate dinner. Some we already knew, although, most were people we had never met (though heard of in most cases).
Aleksandar Cvetkovic of the Rake attended the dinner and later published an article on the occasion. He claims that “these individuals were not chosen exclusively for their dress sense, but because they contribute something meaningful into the discourse of luxury menswear”. As much as we find it hard to accept such a description of ourselves, one can easily say that there are a lot happening within the field of classical sartorial dress at the moment. The people around the table that evening are somewhat a part of this and will be increasingly so in the future.
