Top Looks….Bottega Veneta, Milano

Today was a very good day of menswear shows in Milano. It started early (very early) at Bottega Veneta and just ended at Prada with stops at Ferragamo, Ferre, and Moncler along the way.

Bottega Veneta was so strong: the color options, the focus on sportswear, and the casting of masculine, virile models.

I’m very curious about where the prices will come in on this collection. Even though the design details are fantastic, I don’t want to spend a ton of money on cargo shorts.

Top Looks….Dolce & Gabbana

I have to say that the all white section of Dolce & Gabbana looked great.

On the Street…Italian Khakis, Florence

Italian khakis are the best!

I love American khakis, but American brands add so much fabric to the back upper-thigh panel and butt that it always visually adds 10 pounds to any guy’s backside.

This gentleman’s khakis fit almost like jeans, and that’s why they look so cool.

On the Street….Back at Pitti, Florence


I should be back on a more consistent posting schedule for the next several weeks, if not for the rest of the summer.

I am really inspired by some of the young guys that I’m meeting at Pitti. They seem to appreciate the elements of quality that great menswear can offer and yet approach and use these elements in a more modern and experimental way.

On the Street….Summer Detail, Barcelona

In the heat of summer it can be really hard to make a tee and shorts look interesting.
Finding items with some type of special design detail, like the lace inset for the tee or the sailor buttons for the shorts, can go a long way in taking a look to the next level.
