“The Most Stylish Gentlemen Award” by Ermenegildo Zegna
In line with their proud tradition of dressing some of the world’s most discerning of gentlemen in fine bespoke suit, Ermenegildo Zegna will present “The Most Stylish Gentlemen Award” at the coveted Prestige Ball in Singapore this year.
In recognition of gentlemen with an appreciation for the art of suiting up, the Zegna team together with Prestige Singapore, presented distinguished invitees who will attend The Prestige Ball 2016, with a showcase of various men’s suits and tuxedos earlier this month. Held at the Ermenegildo Zegna ION Boutique, the evening’s event also offered guests an opportunity to receive personal consultation by the Ermenegildo Zegna Su Misura (Made-to-measure) stylists, over chilled champagne and canapes.
Whilst it may be common knowlege that the classic black and white tuxedo is a safe choice for any society event. Guests on the evening were presented by alternative tuxedo and suits styles, created with the modern gentlemen in mind.
Each Zegna fabric has its own unique characteristics, and with the wide range of styles and personalization services on offer, it is no wonder that Zegna was recognized as the world’s largest menswear brand in recent years.
After the session has ended, the guests were invited to have a chat and further consultation with the Su Misura stylists. COVERED’s very own Johannes See had the opportunity to consult Su Misura’s specialist, Billy Legaspi on how Johannes could “better his chances” at winning “The Most Stylish Gentlemen Award” at this year’s Prestige Ball. The reply? It is strongly recommended that a gentlemen returns for alteration checks on his suit or tuxedo, at least once every 2 to 3 years.
