It serves a particularly singular style tribe, albeit for a particular international audience. That said, I used to wear my squares like that dude, so I feel a certain affinity here and there and on a sartorial level, I'd so much rather be seeing rich Italians on the street than rich Middle Easterns - at least they will flaunt their status without logos, overabundant bling and tackily clashing colours

Just looked through the site. Most of it looks really affected, but some are more subtle. One older guy looked good in a few suits, and there were some reasonable casual outfits in there.

Makes me think they'd turn me away at immigration in Malpensa for not owning white jeans.

I might get a pair now. Dare I?

Just flicking through the site ... I'm surprised by how little I like most of the things pictured. A lot of them seem like an older, more sophisticated Abercrombie ... but that's still Abercrombie. Maybe I'm just turning into an MC crank

Ugh. This guy looks like every jackass from my high school just tried on a white sportcoat.

Really? You don't like these? 'cept for the popped collar.
Granted, the blazer/shorts thing and the casual/tennis shoes suck.
