What is the history and background of L.B.M. 1911 clothing by Lubium?
The L.B.M. 1911 collection was introduced in 2005 as part of the storied Lubiam company, renowned for excellence in men's tailoring for over a century. Giovanni Bianchi, the visionary Director of Lubiam's Style Office and part of the fourth generation of the Bianchi family, spearheaded this transformative venture. In the early 2000s, Giovanni boldly moved towards product development, breaking from conventional formal wear while maintaining an unwavering commitment to sartorial quality. This journey led to the company's specialization in the 'garment-dyed' sector, propelling L.B.M. 1911 to become a symbol of research and the perfect balance between sportswear and sartorial elegance. The collection's creation marked a fundamental stage in Lubiam's storied history, embracing a more casual yet exquisitely crafted approach to menswear.
Over the years, the company's 'core' garment, the jacket, has garnered significant attention, making it a staple in male wardrobes. The jacket became a canvas for pioneering studies in streamlining and destructuring. Notably, the focus has been exploring innovative dyeing, washing treatments, and special artisan aging techniques that add a unique and timeless charm to each piece. This commitment to reinvention and craftsmanship has solidified the jacket's position as a standout piece in contemporary menswear.

The higher cuts will work with trousers to jeans, shoes to sneakers, making it easy to dress up while looking effortless. This makes their clothing suitable for day-to-day wear, allowing you to effortlessly incorporate their pieces into your daily routine.
The brand's emphasis on a relaxed aesthetic and unlined jacket creates a comfortable style that resonates particularly well with the younger crowd.

It’s a much more approachable price point than other Italian-tailored brands, yet the quality is still excellent. So someone can add the fine Italian workmanship to their wardrobe, “you won't be able to go back,” but it won't be as big of an investment as something like Kiton or ISIAIA.
