Uman: The Essays 2: Cuba Libre: Elegance Under the Sun

Series: Uman: The Essays (2)
This is a sophisticated wardrobe guides series for modern men. Uman. The Essays is a series of commentaries by contemporary connoisseurs (authors, journalists, and cultured men), who explore the sources of men's costume sports, discovery, passions to reveal the traditions and ethos at the basis of the ideal wardrobe. It is a project by Umberto Angeloni, former chief executive of Brioni, an Italian luxury lifestyle brand with global diffusion. This volume is devoted to fashion under the sun. The author is the writer and journalist Nick Foulkes; in 2007 he was named Havana Man of the Year: ...the classic long-sleeved guayabera is the sartorial expression of what it is to be Cuban: an elegant and languid solution to the heat, if not the shortages, of Cuba. It is as much a symbol of Cuba as cigars and rum. This heat-defeating light linen or cotton overshirt is the sports jacket, the blazer, the business suit and the dinner jacket of Central America.
