Since 1973, GPR knitwear has been manufactured in the Tuscan hills near the city of Florence. This is a region famed for it's food, agriculture and craftsmanship. The knits have that rare combination of quality, simplicity and modernity. What may seem as incidental to some but a real attraction to us was the fact that the guy (Gianni) taking the order was also the designer and owner of the company. Dressed in a lovely navy knit, worn with some battered selvedge denim and a pair of beautiful old Redwings, his product seemed an extension of his own aesthetic.
