Mr Porter's Glossary of Men's Style

"Handmade in Italy, Designed in NY" is the philosophy behind Illesteva, a contemporary eyewear brand renowned for its stylish sunglasses. The firm is known for pushing the boundaries of eyewear by experimenting with materials as diverse as wood and natural buffalo horn. All pairs are handmade in Europe.

Italian label Incotex, part of the Slowear group, has specialised in impeccably well-constructed jeans and trousers since 1951, produced with rigorous attention to detail, and cut from only the finest fabrics. Don't miss the other Slowear brands, which are all listed under Incotex on MR PORTER: Zanone for fine knitwear, Glanshirt for stylish shirts and Montedoro for quality outerwear.
