I don’t know if he knows much about us (yes, I am an Spaniard too). But I do think Carlos’ look is very Spanish: a bit of classic as in Madrid, Santander, Bilbao or San SebastiÃ¡n. Of course Carlos is not looking as in Barcelona, Valencia or the rest of Mediterranean area. There is not just one Spanish style. Carlos was born in Bilbao and lives there and Madrid. I do think he epitomizes both cities style. (BTW I was born in San SebastiÃ¡n and I live in Madrid, so I know a bit abou this)
Thanks for your answer, Vig.
I think my point is implicit in your message. Since there are many styles inside Spain, you can’t tag someone as “Spanish”, “not very Spanish” or “not Spanish at all”.
To my mind, Berends message relies mostly on stereotypes.
But … long story short: Spanish or not, I like Castillo’s look! ;)
The combination of the slate blue tie, light blue shirt and khaki jacket is perfection, dream-like. The colors by themselves are ordinary-together, they are magical. Also, Madrid is a wonderful city where you be what you want to be and have fun doing it. I cannot recommend the city enough!
