Fashion entrepreneur and style icon Alessandro Squarzi founded Fortela due to his passion for Italian tailoring, Japanese textiles, and vintage fabrics collected on his many travels. The result is an array of unique fabrics and tailoring that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. He calls it a gypsy classic.
Alessandro has worked with vintage clothing for 30 years and is often featured on Esquire’s best-dressed list. His style sense is truly unique as he often revisits military and vintage items, adding interesting contemporary details to create many of his statement pieces.
Fortela brings together classic trousers, vests, and jackets combined with army surplus and non-military stock and accessories such as western belts, bandanas and aviator bags. See our selection below.
