Catching up with Fabio Attanasio, founder of The Bespoke Dudes, in NYC
One of my favorite things about the digital space, is that we are able to connect with people all over the world who share similar interests and passions. And I recently had a chance to meet, in-person, someone whose style I’ve admired for quite some time.
Following Fabio’s Instagram over the years, I immediately noticed that we were birds of a feather. A classic sense of style with a modern sensibility. A focus on quality in terms of what we invest in personally, the brands we choose to collaborate with as well as the message and type of content we produce. Fabio has a sense of integrity that is admirable, especially when it comes to operating in this digital world.
It could be incredibly easy to get caught up in the hype surrounding what we do and be overcome with a desire to put oneself first rather than the readers who look to you for advice. This was just one of the many things we discussed during the few hours we were able to spend together before Fabio had to hop on a plane back to Milan to prepare for his next TBD Eyewear trunk show in London.
More than anything, it was great to know that the person that Fabio appears to be in his photos is the person he turly is in real life. That’s not always the case and, let me tell you, it is really refreshing when you find those people.
We were hoping to shoot an episode of Speaking Style with Fabio, but didn’t want it to feel rushed. Instead we used the time to check out the recently reopened Rose Reading Room in the New York Public Library, talk about the state of menswear online, trade tips on favorite cigars and just generally get acquainted.
We will definitely be doing a video with Fabio in the future, but in the meantime, if you’re fans of what’s going on here at HSS, I highly recommend you become a reader of Fabio’s as well.
Thanks for reading.
