Nice picture! I love how the stripes on the shirt go with the diagonal weave of the tie, bold gesture- I would not have thought they go. I have read before to match your socks to your pants, lest you appear as wearing booties. He matched them to his shoes, and it does indeed look like he is wearing higher shoes. The reporter looks nice also, I may have to save up for the Hermes leather bracelet. Jorge from W Palm Beach
I don’t know if it’s inspiring or disappointing to not be awed by Mr. Zegna; Nevertheless, I don’t like his tie and shirt combination, I personally detest loafers with suits and I don’t like the look of his pantscuff, although that probably can’t be judged properly with him seated. Surely his outfit is actually fabulous- it must be.Or maybe this should be encouraging? Now I do want to see him again. How curious.
Signor Zegna is perfect. You don’t know if this is a fashion designer, a manager, a banker, a sales rep or what. You only know it is a well dressed business man. That’s all. And that’s exactly enough. Great.
I’m pleased to see Mr.Zegna but can’t really find anything to say about his outfit other than that it looks comfortable and well cut (in that order). At least his calf is not showing between sock and trouser bottom.
I like everything but the socks… begging for a little gray/blue. Too much of a bootie effect with the black on black. Was he trying to match the socks with the watch? lol. I dunno … I like the plastic digitals but with a suit I’d always go for something simple and classic.
Sorry, Ironman watch not a style upgrade. I have them and wear them for running wind sprints. They get disgusting, and should be left in the locker room. If you don’t use them in workouts, what is the point? All of their non-workout functions can be found in other watches.
There are plenty of other reasonable watches on the market. Sorry to disagree.
His watch could very well be a PVD coated watch. It is a pricey treatment to give expensive watches anti-bling. PRO HUNTER is an example of this type of watch. I would expect this level of attention from such an icon.
I think the statement from the watch can be taken as – my life is worth more than 10K for a watch? Also, maybe he has the same issue I do with watches – only a Timex can live on my wrist. I can kill any watch, faster than you can say ‘pardon me, what time is it?’.
He looks nice. I tried looking really closely at his tie and got dizzy. That might work well for him. Is it the man’s dizzying affect, or the ties?
What does he do? I live in my own little world and have no idea who he is.
This man knows how to looks good sitting down with his leg crossed, showing no skin. His socks are the right length, with no leg skin. Perfecto! Watches tell time, it could be a $20 Timex, as long as it gives time accurately. Bravo for Mr. Z!
You know, I’ve asked the local Zegna boutique here in Chicago, where I could find the insanely wonderful fall 2008 Z Zegna mens collection, and alas couldn’t get a response. (collection seen at NY mag.com)
Long black socks are a sign of elegance. I totally disagree with the “boot effect” that some describe. This season “no-socks-with-a-suit” effect has been devastating upon elegance, thanks God winter is coming! I love the “montenapoleone” tie. Well done Mr. Z!
I hope he wears not a cheap plastic watch – this would ruin the otherwise nice suit&tie (not sure about the cuffs tough). It seems the watch has a silver pusher or crown which would rule out a ProHunter – I agree with post above: either a IWC Doppelchronograph or Chrono-Automatic (both Edition Top-Gun)
Plastic-watches are adequate during sports or repairing your car – everywhere else there can be found very nice Mechanicals (in every price range)
I LOVE Zegna. I love being a woman, but the only thing that would want to make me be a man is to wear a Zegna suit, shirt, tie…the whole deal. I always find his cuts & pieces fabulous. And those campaigns with Brody- how can I forget! Love the whole Zegna universe. And on a side note, I was at one point addicted to the ZegnaIntenso perfume as this guy I was crazy about used to wear it! Mmmm!
I always comment my husband whenever he wears his Polar watch with a suit… maybe I should give him a break. Fashion IS better when relativized. Thanks for the hint Sir Schuman! May I also say that I find Mr. or Ms. Gailleton’s remark about mechanicals somehow misplaced, it’s not very kind and even painful for some to suggest that such luxury is supposed to be in everyone’s reach .
