Quote:Thinking of Thracozaag's picture of Gianni Agnelli's successor unbuttoning his sleeve buttons and buttondown shirt collar in this thread, I came across this professorial article about "dandyism" and the style touches of fashion icons like Astaire and Agnelli. It's interesting reading. http://<a href="http://www.claremont...vanni.html</a> Maybe if you're only Agnelli's imitator in these flourishes (e.g. you live in the Midwest, say, and you do not head up a large, financially distressed auto maker), "style" too easily turns into "affectation". IMO, better to actually be Agnelli or Barbera if you try this.
