There’s something oddly familiar about Luigi Borrelli’s fall/winter ’11 collection. But be that as it may, there is a vast array of quality garments to be had here by all sartorially inclined gentlemen. The fact that the majority of these garments are designed in neutral colours makes mixing these pieces that much easier. You could…
