    I rarely see a break that is neat and intended as opposed to just slobbery, and the ones above are the latter. There's a misconception that one needs the ankle-flashing Pitti capris to get straight-hanging, breakless trousers... a good tailor can interface the bottom of the trousers to give a clean or slight break pending on preference.

    Still one of my favourites. The very relaxed, natural attitude is sprezzatura. No need for open monkstraps, curled up shirt collars or opened cuff buttons. Not even a PS...

    Interested to see more shoe shots - particularly with regard to what is acceptable in terms of Italian CBD. I'm assuming cap-toe oxfords but what about loafers and monks?

    Totally concurred Mr. E. this is a man who looks comfortable and relaxed in well fitting clothes, no need for 'look at me' gimmicks.

    Whoever said more photos of shoes, same! I have a pair of black and dark brown cap toe... need another 2 to 3 pairs and preferabbly one to be my "rainy day" boot. I do have a pair of Loake chukka's but may differ them to SW&D wear or super casual days in the office...

    This thread so exciting. It's like the gothninja of CM :rolleyes:

    love those bestetti's.

    I figured my next shoe would be another black pair... Going to be some black cap toe boots :nodding:

    Is Italian CBD fond of pebbled grain, or always smooth? Since I already have a pair of black cap toe, these next one have to have at the very least a punch cap toe +/- other details...
