    Is he a very small man with a tiny head?

    I’m all for a substantial tie and knot but this rig gives him pinhead illusion.
    I’m not too hip, so maybe the pinhead look is hot at the moment.

    Does anybody even say hip anymore?
    I’m an old beatnik.

    Snug jacket lets him loose some winter insulation and keep a good fit.

    I like the long coat sleeves and unbuttoned shirt sleeves, though there will always be naysayers.
    I often wear mine that way so my wrists are covered when driving topdown. I don’t care if some mistake me for Khrushchev.

    Otto, why you gotta rag? The guy’s handsome. And if anything, he’s got a large head.

    Quit commenting on the photos and start reading the captions.

    No one is perfect and this site isn’t about beeing perfect.
    It would be boring to see perfect outfits all the time here – if that’s what you want to see just buy fashion magazines and you don’t have to moan about “normal” people.

    Dear Otto,

    Please keep posting your commentary. It’s sort of like a second blog — a blog within a blog. Nice.

    I like the way the jacket fits–natural shoulders and nipped in at the torso. I don’t like the big tie knot–I know that’s been “in” for some time, but it doesn’t appeal to me. I wish Mr. Kos would create a website–I’m a college student in Kentucky. I won’t be coming to New York anytime soon.

    Not at all keen on the sleeve cuff-undone look that Italian men seem to get off on….and on this slightly chubbie fellow…….I will keep mum!

    This slightly nonechalant disheaved style of dress was ´invented ´by the late ´Giannini´Giovanni Agnelli who died tragically from cancer and was the true heir apparent of Fiat having turned around Piaggio scooters.
    In interview I was always unimpressed with this ´sartorical ´look he empolyed, whilst always puffing away on an obligatory marlboro…..

    In my humble opinion, I believe he employed this look to set his own trend and also to distinguish him away from his uncle, the late great style-setter; Gianni who began the Italian trends of wristwatch-on-shirt cuffs, buttondown tie-knotted collar undone and and tie outside v-necked sweater look, which lots of Italian men try to emulate but have never ever bettered…..Afterall In Italy immitation is the better half of flattery…!
