The themes

Cotton
Cotton is not just cotton. It depends on what ALBERTO makes of it. Many of the models are available in a extra-comfortable stretch version. Whether gabardine, canvas, satin, herring bone, multicounts, broken twills or mini-textures – your look will be assured thanks to the fabrics.


Cord
A key feature of the cord range is its exciting variety. Sporty baby stretch cord makes a visual statement, as do extra-soft fine cord and cord fancys. A triple printed cord fabric or a charming check print as a new take on cord are just two examples. Cord is always an excellent choice for Everyman.


Technology
Technological textiles come into their own in the ALBERTO Autumn/Winter collection. Cult model Ceramica is, of course, the centre of attention. The practical high-tech trousers with “integrated thermostat” with their distinctive appearance will catch anyone's eye. Five new products underline ALBERTO's know-how in this sector – some of them are exclusive to ALBERTO. Whether with stripes, herringbone look, stripes or mini-texture – Ceramica always demonstrates its popular functional qualities. Elegant, universal techno-serge and techno-pinstripe are also must-haves in the technology range.


Wool
Wool lets winter show itself from its best side, making men's legs elegant and attractive. High quality fabrics emphasise the smart look. Classic, yet fashionable textures like herringbone, stripes or even fresco are available in this season's hip new colours.


Fancys
ALBERTO demonstrates its guts and self-confidence with imaginative fancys: including jacquard fabrics in honeycomb patterns as well as printed and textured checks. An absolute highlight is the fine cord fabric with a brand new diamond print.


Denim
Denim stands for a light, easy lifestyle even at low temperatures. Stretch denim is particularly popular this season. Knitted looks; bright threads, multicounts and inkys in authentic washed looks make for an up-to-the-minute fashion statement. Combined with colourful finishes, buttons, rivets and contrast-colour threads every pair of jeans is an eye catcher. Key looks for the threads and finishes are violet and military. Fabrics are generally dark, harmonious and authentic, in particular cross-dyed.


The colours

Fascinating colours provide an antidote to dark days. Camel, coffee, military, ox-blood as well as petrol and purple are absolute musts. Black cross-dying shows them off to their full advantage, giving the models an elegant touch. Bright colours are available for the velvet and cord ranges: carrot, grass, violet and petrol provide colourful accents and whet the appetite for the rest of the Autumn/Winter collection.


The belts

ALBERTO belts are designed to coordinate perfectly with the Men's Pants collection. Carefully worked, top quality leather emphasises the fashion-conscious man's high standards. Particular eye catchers are robust belts made entirely from calf leather and with heavy buckles. Heavy calf leather is often combined with details such as rivets and eyes and mixed with denim. Reptile prints in the latest winter colours are a must for every product range
