If you’ve ever seen the Valentino movie, The Last Emperor, you know that Marlboro Classics comes from the same corporate company. It’s an Italian brand that does some great casual wear – especially cotton blazers and shirts.
Why the name? Europeans love Americana (Tommy Hilfiger is huge there!) and Marlboro Classics has that rugged, masculine Clint Eastwood feel to it. So nothing to do with the cigarettes! The brand is for my bigger guys, but it is European so an XXL is not like an American XXL.
