Inspired by our trip to Pitti Uomo, the menswear extravaganza in Florence, Italy last January, we wanted to create a piece with a little shout out to our Italian brothers and sisters.  With our extremely limited Italian vocabulary (see pretty much the only word we knew) we thought Ciao was appropriate given we the fact we were effectively saying hello to Italy for the first time.  Plus it looked great and was just fun to say.  We quickly found out what a special word it was.  Over the next week new friends and faces peppered us with ciaos from all angles - ciao hellos, ciao goodbyes, ciao this, ciao that.  Needless to say the jacket was a hit and we haven't stopped saying it yet!  CIAO!!!
