    Also, Marzotto needs an appearance. He is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the best dressed men in Italy:

    I am curious what most of these gentlemen wear for footwear. I am assuming a lot of dark brown suede/leather and black shoes. Any room for tan/cognac/chestnut etc?

    When walking around Milan, you see a lot of very dark suits and black shoes. It may be the younger fashionistas in RTW but it looks good.

    I see. So, staying true to this thread my next shoe will not be a pair of pebble grain cognac/tan leather jodhpurs. Perhaps something in a dark brown or black cap toe boot in pebble grain leather.

    Those sideburns are awful though.

    Looks like a d-bag

    ?? Seem totally normal to me. Maybe I'm too embedded in d-bag culture.

    Dark brown suede balmorals would be the safer, Italian CBD-eccentric go-to.

    Yeah even in the one above where they're the longest, I didn't even notice. I think they compliment his face well, especially since has those high collars which are a bit 70's/Edwardian in themselves. I think part of the d-baggery, if any, might be because his hair is curly and perhaps too long... too manicured.

    Marzotto looks good in his high collars. Makes a huge difference IMO

    I haven't seen a bad fit of Marzotto

    If he put his shoes under my bed, I would steal them :cool:
