If you’re lucky, you might have caught a glimpse of Guglielmo Miani as he saunters up Via Monte Napoleone like a purring blue-eyed panther in one of his perfectly cut suits, silk ties and polished lace-up shoes. Dean of the dapper and unofficial mayor of Milan’s old-school grace, Miani is one of those rare peacocks who effortlessly blends elegance with hunky manliness. But he’s not just a pretty bird: Miani is the third generation owner of Larusmiani, a historic Milanese boutique that has quietly purveyed in classic Italian style since 1922. Building upon the legacy of his skilled tailor grandfather, Miani has transformed the family’s well-known textile business into a sprawling boutique for beautifully finished goods on Milan’s tony Via Monte Napoleone.
