Eleventy Milano, the Affordable Brunello Cucinelli
Who is Eleventy Milano and is Eleventy clothing any good?
The short answer is yes, it’s good. Founded in 2007 by Marco Baldassari and Paolo Zuntini, Eleventy Milano embodies classic Italian elegance with its sophisticated tailoring and expert craftsmanship, made exclusively in Italy.
The label designs luxury pieces for fashion-forward men and women using sustainable production and high-quality textiles, like organic cotton, wool, and cashmere, in the same understated way as fellow Italian labels Brunello Cucinelli and Fabiana Filippi.
In 2014, Vei Capital took 51% ownership of Eleventy Milano, which allowed the brand to expand its direct footprint in major markets like the U.S., opening a North American headquarters in 2016 in New York.
Since then, the label has gradually grown into a household name, at least among fashion insiders and menswear enthusiasts, showing up frequently in threads on classical menswear message board The Style Forum.
Last July, actor Chris Evans wore an Eleventy Milano suit for the red carpet premiere of his film Captain America.
You may have noticed that Eleventy Milano closely mimics the styles, cuts, and neutral color palette of brands like Brunello Cucinelli and Fabiana Filippi, though Eleventy is priced at about ⅓ the price of the former, and about on-par with the latter. The styles are not identical of course, but anyone who likes Cucinelli or Filippi will surely appreciate Eleventy.
Eleventy focuses first on its menswear, though its collection for women has become almost equally as popular.
Look for iconic styles like tailored trousers, single- and double-breasted outerwear and blazers, and accessories like footwear, belts, and hats, all made with high-quality materials sourced from the top mills in Italy, and responsibly assembled in Italy too.
We love Eleventy Milano for its casual sophistication and ease of mixing and matching. If you’re looking for a timeless wardrobe update, one that will feel stylish and polished for years to come, consider Eleventy—and save up to 40% on italist.
