Es­sen­tials of style

. . . And where to find it

Your best to­day.

Two years ago, Gucci Creative Di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele ush­ered in a new, hy­per­max­i­mal­ist era—louche silk shirts, ta­pes­try-like top­coats and em­broi­dery ev­ery­where. These days, ev­ery­one from Idris Elba to Harry Styles marches in the Gucci Army, and looks bet­ter for do­ing it. Does ev­ery man need a pais­ley cape? Uh, no. Could we all stand to bring a lit­tle more wit to our style? Ab­so­lutely. That’s where this brief­case comes in. Its bones are old-school Gucci: sub­stan­tial, struc­tured, with a trade­mark bam­boo han­dle that dates back to 1947. That be­winged, Ben­gal­striped free­loader? He’s the fun part. The bag lets you chan­nel that Gucci magic with­out go­ing full Fauntleroy—take the em­broi­dery, hold the silk and the satin. If noth­ing else, Tony here should get you psyched for your next business meet­ing.
