L.B.M. 1911 FLY Fall 2012

NEW YORK, May 29, 2012/ — The Fall/Winter 2012/13 Fly collection has been developed with new styles featuring a broader range of coats and jackets.

The line is characterized by both the more extreme washing and treatment techniques used on the fabrics, and for its exclusive tailoring features. The new pieces are made of particularly innovative materials, fresh for the Fall/Winter season.


The unlined jacket, which comes in one style and is 72-cm in length, is proposed in several types of untreated jersey.

The jacket in plain wool tricot jersey is personalized with raw seams and a floral print undercollar. The plain colored jersey field jacket is also prominent this season, with a contrasting undercollar and lapel face, inside piping and a half-belt.

The most innovative piece in the collection is the 3-gauge cable knit wool tricot jacket, available in bright orange, green or purple.

The collection is completed by additional key pieces:
– A lined jacket in jersey with contrasting patches and undercollar in a solid color, made of two types of jersey— “cappello da prete” (a special weave that resembles the three-cornered hat worn by priests in the eighteenth century) and herringbone.
– A pea-coat in jersey with raw seams, bias tape piping on the inside, and contrasting undercollar.
– A revisited Montgomery in plain wool jersey or a warm madras jersey with colors that blend into each other.

The heavy jackets are personalized with an embroidered logo on the sleeve.


The various styles include the 5-pocket version and the American pocket version in two styles, with or without darts. The novelty is the American pocket version with double top-stitched patch pockets on the back.

This style is slightly more assertive than the traditional American pocket. The trousers come in various fabrics, including stretch and non-stretch gabardine, broken double face, velvet, grisaille, bird’s eye, satin and cotton herringbone, and washed denim that is cross-dyed and treated to create a faded look for the blue or grey trousers.
