    I have heard this a couple of times lately, black shoes. Which is odd seeing as I understood black to be anathema to the Italians. I clearly prefer brown shoes and have been on a 5 year tear purchasing them in different shades, styles. Perhaps it's the slim, no break trousers that make them look sharp instead of conservative.

    Beppe Modenese. Impeccably dressed, if not always in CBD, when I see him around town.

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



    In the top five worldwide !:bigstar:

    seems many of the "older" crown enjoy much more break in their trousers than the younger crowd.

    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...
