In January, for the first time in our history, there were over 300,000 visits to the Permanent Style site, doubtless helped by Pitti, The Times and Fuera de Serie.

Thank you so much to everyone that visits, reads and contributes to the ongoing work of this site. I’m so glad you find it interesting and useful, and share the same aims of quality, investment and classic style.
