We ate bacon, talked Politics and Manchester City FC and I even got complimented by the notorious Mark Garner/Gordo from Confidential Publishing: ‘Italian suits look better on someone like my colleague here’ *points to me as I sneeze orange juice*
Still, the brand isn’t all £2,500 suits and old blokes talking EU – they have a new diffusion, LAB by Pail Zilieri. Gotta love a good diffusion.
LAB by Pal Zilieri is a little younger, a little slimmer, a little shinier and a little right up my street. Lapels are tighter, waists are smaller, styling is more casual and palettes are a little more experimental. Bruno and General Manager Phillip dragged me to the Pal Zilieri Concession in Harvey’s to make me try on a jacket. ‘OK’, I said, thinking ‘I don’t think I even like Pal Zilieri’. Phillip took one glance and picked out a jacket that fit like a a £2,500 suit should fit. Only, it was £500. ‘Bargain’ I heard myself say before my bank balance smacked me in the gut.
