Suit Yourself

by Danilo Brunetti

Whether you’re looking to master business casual or make an impression at that holiday party, why not seek out the help of a pro? Owner Angelo Mantini, his son Giuliano, and meticulously selected sta of Roman menswear boutique Esedra 58 have proven themselves experts in gentlemen’s fashion. “Our store is for a man of class who wants to dress well, not just for special occasions, but also in his daily life,” explains Mantini. “Fashion is a sector that is in constant evolution and we’re the first ones to keep up to date on the latest styles.” Handily located in the heart of the city, in Piazza della Repubblica, Esedra 58 brims with everything from tailored shirts to leather jackets to separates, all made exclusively with the nest fabrics and materials available on the market. Esedra 58 is perhaps best known, however, for its luxurious array of men’s suits, all lovingly crafted in high-quality Italian wool. An on-site tailor makes the final tucks and alterations to truly personalize your Made-in-Italy piece. Bespoke suits are another exciting possibility for the fashion-forward man; once it is complete, the boutique’s personal courier will hand deliver your wearable masterpiece to your hotel. Not looking for yourself but eager to knock out your holiday shopping in the Eternal City? Esedra 58’s silk ties, belts, bowties, and even cologne will look dapper under the Christmas tree and in the years to come. Handmade dress shoes, crafted in England and Italy, also occupy an important place in the store’s inventory. So what makes this family-run business so successful? “In our boutique we focus not just on dressing the person, but also their personality,” says Mantini. “Each man has his own unique story and style—and it’s our job to dress that part of him too.”
