A personal tour of Alan’s favorite Mediterranean vacation spots.
“While the Easy Riding western world was gleefully casting off its meticulously constructed menswear traditions in the 1960s and 70s, it was the Japanese who picked up the pieces from the side of the road, dusted them off, and installed them as icons of timeless taste. Little surprise that when Alan Flusser emerged on the fashion scene, resplendently and unapologetically classicist, he was immediately Big in Japan.”
Sometimes, as well-versed as we may be in Brummelian principles of simplicity, we’re driven to satisfy a deeply personal craving for the baroque, the exotic. Sometimes, nothing but a perfectly fitted, patch-pocketed, half-belted, action-backed, three-piece suit with a lapelled vest and wide-legged, fish-tailed trousers (convertible to plus-sixes) made up in a luminescent, boldly-checked multicolor tweed will do.
