    Along with the now departed black-suited Stephen di Renza, Dunhill seems to have a cabinet of interesting, chic men with tastes in a refined melange of vintage mixed with the modern. For example, Yann Debelle de Montby whose name reflects a sort of Continental flavor of Mulatto adventurers, and Talbot-Lago autombiles. His other note comes from the fact that he developed the Berluti brand in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately for American conglomerates our most compelling personalities are those of Ken Lay.

    Is he too bohemian or not bohemian enough? Is he so ironic that he not ironic enough? Is he nonchalant or over produced?

    Well, he was 18 when he bought his vintage suits at The Old Hat shop, which at least tells he was not average when young. And he says things like: "You get a wonderfully compact tool kit complete with spare registration plate and screwdrivers accompanying the watch, so you can change the registration plates at a whim. An eccentric twist which I find absolutely fabulous."

    His watch appears to be 1930s/1940s gold Audemars/Vacheron type.

    LK, are you Superman? How can you identify that watch? In fact, I'd venture that it's a bit larger than 32mm, the preference of some.

    My identification was with the larger first photo I posted. It looks like it might a 34mm watch though, with one of those vintage solid gold mesh bands.

    Why would you compare this guy to Ken Lay? Berluti is clothing and stylish apparel. Enron was (supposed to be) an energy company.

    I doubt any European CEO's of energy companies or large utilities dress like this guy. Apples to oranges baby!

    That being said, he looks very cool. Neat suit with the turn back cuffs.
