Your comment brings up an interesting point. I wonder why American men are terrified to show any hint in their attire that they possess a penis and testicles? Shame? Puritan influence still at work? It would seem Italian men don’t have such issues, and I applaud them for that.
why the obsession with the shirt cuff? men judging other men’s style by some inches of cloth seems to me a very political jesture that prohibits creative sartorial expression in the name of legacy and ethics. if a custom is strong enough, by which i mean beautiful enough, it will survive indifferent to popular climate.
Not unsual to see most commenters are more interested in the package than the cuff issue. A good reminder about how American men wear their pants below the package line (we aren’t as comfortable with showing off), while British and European men “dress” to one side of the crotch or the other. Apparently, signor is a “leftie.” Bravo!
