    is he black or actually white european (as his name suggests)

    You cannot tell that he is black?

    No. He is asking why a black man would have an Italian sounding name instead of an English (or African or Ebonic) one.

    Luigi Martini? Sounds like a stage name.

    I like it. Would never get away with dressing like that, but like it. Even the tie.

    As much as I love Kiton, I don't like the white sneakers and suit look on anyone.

    Better for Kiton to have more photos of Massimo. He has style.

    Or a string of Italian restaurants.

    I just can't go with this outfit. The suit looks nice (though maybe a bit trim in the upper leg area...hard to tell), and maybe the shirt (but not with this suit); the whole thing together, though, just doesn't work for me. It's like chocolate shavings on pizza.

    Call me crazy, but I think his color scheming works, in a loud kind of way. The colors don't seem to clash. Sure, they're not subtle, but I kind of dig them. The shoes, OTOH, bleh.

    He pulled the look off with ease; I doubt I can do the same with the same outfit.

    He looks great!

    My name is Luigi Martini.
    You killed my father.

    The colors work alright, just not the actual patterns. If they were solid colors instead it would be fine.

    My office is 2 blocks from Kiton and I see this guy all the time and I don't think I have ever seen him wear shoes with a suit. The first time I thought that is interesting, but after that I kept wondering why doesn't he wear shoes sometimes.
    Do you mean he wears sneakers, or no shoes at all?

    Both of them are somewhat offensive, but the latter is just egregious.
