    My Managing Director's Whitcomb and Shaftsbury suits have much more style.

    Perhaps, but does he have as great a mane of hair as Lapo? You have to admit, he does have great hair!

    This what I can't get out of my mind.

    He never has dressed himself. (inherited wardrobe)

    He is a cokehead.

    He has been caught with she-males in a hotel room. (ie - he has fucked a dude)

    Given these facts, how on Earth can anyone take this clown seriously.


    I can't take anyone that inherits that much money and doesn't spend it on coke and whores seriously. The she-male thing is just more decadent cred. I mean c'mon, what kind of gaylord inherits say 1 billion and thinks "I'm going to dress like an accountant and work hard so I can leave 2 billion to my son." Fuck that.

    I believe that is the family motto.

    Every item? Also, did it come with instructions on how to pair them? I think he's wrong more often than he's right, but he has style and seems pretty sartorially fearless which is a plus in my book.

    The guy is a socialite and he has quite a personal fashion style..
    He is more miss than hit to be fair..
    His more conservative outfits are the best , far better than the hippie I don't give a shit socialite mix and mismatch he is serving us..
    Like every man with beautiful and rich girlfriends and massive bank accounts , he has most likely lost touch with the real world making his dress sense more adventurous like us plebes..
    We try to be elegant , he is just Lapo ..

    I think he looks pretty cool. I would like the white/red/pink combo on the 1st page if the collar wasn't club.
