That 90% off Ferrari sale: got cancelled this year. White truffles: sold out again. And Monica Bellucci is still married to that French guy.
Which is why we're pleased to tell you about Anthony Menswear, which flung open its doors in Upper Georgetown this past weekend to bring you the kind of approachable Italian style that the next Ms. Bellucci is sure to appreciate.
A far cry from the English-inspired shops nearby, this family operation is like an oasis of modern, slim-cut gear in a desert of tweed. Just in time to load up on the kind of threads—think cashmere-blend sport jackets and thick wool pea coats—that you need to zip from party to party this holiday season.
If you're more concerned with Monday's board meeting, seek out their private label, designed in America and sewn in Italy—trim-cut shirts and small-batch suits, hand-finished to your measurements by their Turkish tailor.
It's not all in the family, however: You'll see hard-to-find Italian labels like Reporter and Fabio Inghirami, as well as—yes, a little something from farther north—Ben Sherman.
The English are pushing back.
