Charles Vane is a luxury lifestyle brand, of which Italian artigianato is at the heart and soul. We blend old-world craftsmanship with the latest innovative textiles to create a unique fashion statement that is equal to those of Emilio Pucci, Roberto Cavalli, Armani, Gucci, Ermanno Scervino, and Salvatore Ferragamo — just not insanely priced. Our flagship store is in Covent Garden, London.
What are the designs?
Every piece we create at Charles Vane is tailor-fit and hand-crafted in the Tuscany region of Italy. We steer away from garish logos and branding — allowing the wearer to make his own statement. Furthermore, we also utilize a security ID tag which prevents brand dilution that comes with counterfeits, a growing concern of luxury goods.
Why buy from Charles Vane?
For the quality, design, and sophistication of our collection of course! But also, as a socially-minded company, Charles Vane not only uses cruelty-free fabrics, we make certain our partners implement fair trade practices as well. Above all, our brand donates a minimum of 10% of our profits to causes that positively impact the world around us.

You don’t have to look too hard now to see the guys leading the pack when it comes to wearing linen. I would tend to mix and match the styles. So linen shorts with a shirt. Linen blazer with cotton shorts. It really depends on what you’re comfortable with. The Italians let alone the Spaniards will always show us how one way or another to wear linen in a cool casual way. We are all about the man on the street after all.
The linen collections out there are about pushing the suit boundaries for men more than ever before. It is about the mixing of materials with different cotton styles that have given it a more edgy appeal. The retro prints and floral fabrics are for the adventurous man. The layering of clothes seem to be an added bonus, but not sure how cool this can be in a very hot climate.
