A sophisticated wardrobe guides' series for modern men. Uman. The Essays is a series of commentaries by contemporary connoisseurs (authors, journalists, and cultured men), who explore the sources of men's costume - sports, discovery, passions - to reveal the traditions and ethos at the basis of the ideal wardrobe. It is a project by Umberto Angeloni, former chief executive of Brioni, an Italian luxury lifestyle brand with global diffusion. The fourth Essay of the series is devoted to clothing designed for telemark (a term used for skiing using the Telemark turn. It is also known as "free heel skiing"). Its author Markus Ebner is the founder of Achtung, Germany's directional fashion magazine and Sepp, a unique publication that brings together football and fashion. He is the men's fashion critic for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung: "...what a man wears says a lot about him - first impressions always count. Even if we deeply believe in not judging a book by its cover, the old adage holds true: you only have one chance to make a good first impression..."
