Lecturer, curator, flâneur and author, HUGO JACOMET, ‘The Parisian Gentleman’, is a public figure and a pioneer of the menswear revival that celebrates well-crafted clothing and elegant gentlemen.
Monsieur Jacomet has a strong following and his digital magazine, Parisian Gentleman, is a worldwide reference for sartorial updates and education.
He is a militant defender of tailors, cobblers and craftsmen who follow the strict codes of quality that predate mass industrialization, and he has a reputation for unveiling the gems hidden in the sea of mass-marketed menswear.
In 2015, Parisian Gentleman released its first TV commercial entitled “LADIES” (produced by DLV BBDO Milan and directed by Igor Borghi). This film received a third prize award at the New York Festivals World’s Best Advertising 2015.
Hugo Jacomet is a Thames and Hudson author. His first book “The Parisian Gentleman” is to be released in October 2015 in Europe and in December 2015 in the USA. His second book, “The Italian Gentleman, will be released during the winter 2016.
