Picture this, a stylish man wearing a bespoke suit with a velvet bowtie and pocket square to match. Now picture this, a man riding a vintage motorcycle around the historic streets of Milan. Put those two together and you have the most dapper event of the year: The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR).
An annual gathering of well-dressed men with an appreciation for two-wheeled vehicles, the DGR is a global event that is held in over 600 cities worldwide. This year, over 1,500 gentlemen attended the ride in Milan, raising money for the Movember Foundation, which supports Prostate cancer and suicide prevention. The leisurely ride began at (insert location) and finished at the Spirit of Milan with an outdoor reception and live jazz and swing music.
This year’s event was a huge success and ended up raising more than €35,000.
Será Fine Silk would like to thank Zenith and the Saville Club, this year’s local sponsors. We are proud to have outfitted the Saville Club’s team with bowties to match their bespoke double-breasted vests. Check out the pictures below to see how dapper these distinguished gentlemen look!
