need help from the group. What's the Italian style phrase for...

There's an Italian phrase for "imperfect" style. Having an item slightly askew to convey nonchalance. Like when the skinny end of the tie is longer. Or the tie knot is a little looser or tied slightly out of line. No cufflinks or foregoing collar stays.

Yes. The idea that a man's outfit should never look too perfect.

Thanks!
