Shibumi Berlin Interview

The next inspiring personality in the series “What I have on me” is Benedikt Fries. Benedict was born in Berlin but now living in Florence and you probably recognize him as one of the two well-dressed men from tie-and accessoarföretaget Shibumi-Berlin.

Introduction

My name is Benedikt Fries and together with my best friend Niel Holdorf, I run the company Shibumi. We founded the brand three years ago and am incredibly happy because it is a rare luxury to have the opportunity to work with their life’s passion. We started with ties but have now expanded the collection with all forms of classic male accessories such as pocket squares, suspenders, scarves, belts, shoes and hats. Through our webshop we have loyal customers from all over the world as many today can be classified as friends.

Comment to the upholstery

I have tested many different tailors throughout the years. With some, I have had a good experience and the other a clearly inferior. In my opinion, is the tailor’s workshop of the Florentine Kotaro Miyahira Sartoria Corcos a genius and I know of no tailors working as accurately as him. He would thank if no to some work from customers asking about details he didn’t like having their house style for which he is proud. It’s something I respect very much with him. What I’m wearing today is one of my favoritkostymer from him. A dark blue wool/mohair mix in a little heavier version. I myself are not so good in dark blue suits but prefer a little brighter tones that dress me better.

The tie is from our latest fall collection and it is one of my absolute favorites. It is a very special pattern and I love the unusual and strong color combination. Of course, I like the Repp, grenadine and crocheted ties too but printed silk is always what I fall back on if I hesitate.

Like many other #menswear-clowns so I usually wear brown suede shoes. These are my favourites at the moment. There are a few so-called “U-tip” Oxford (I never wear derbys) on the popular U-last from Laszlo Vass produced exclusively for us.

Typically, I order my shirts measure or bespoke but when it comes to the right Buttondownskjortor I kofektionsmodeller from Japanese Kamakura. They have an impressive collar and a fit I feel very good with Some romantic miss them. the hand-stitched details but the collar and the fit for me is more important in a shirt.
