    Timo, that's excellent, I had planned grey suit / light blue shirt / navy tie with red spots too - but I might have to change that as I'm not going to beat you in a head to head fight!

    I might go navy pinstripe, white shirt and navy tie... Hmmm.

    So basically Italian CBD is British CBD with more textures and sprezz, and less structured suits?

    I liked Beppe's choice of brown suede with his navy suit.

    sounds about right, but id say that the cut is also probably somewhat more tapered?
