    Lapo Elkann has always captured my attention with his right on attitude of dressing……class, sophistication, imagination and when he wants COOLER THAN HELL!!!
    My personal fave of all those who inspire you.

      I agree. He is a perfect model for European chic that is international.

      I totally agree with you! He’s incredibly stylish whatever he wears! This is the “charisma” of a person.

        Totally agree! He is the coolist! Plus, it pays(literally) to be from a wealthy, politically prominent Italian family!

    We know Mr. Elkann has a number of Rubinacci suits, but is this one of them, Scott? The color is something Luca would recommend (and it is beautiful) but that isn’t a spalla camicia, the jacket’s skirt is a bit short, and I’ve never seen a turnback or gauntlet cuff on a Rubinacci (but I daresay they’d try to make one if a client like Mr. Elkann asked). Rubinacci would also typically cut the suit jacket to show some shirt cuff — Lapo is showing none at all (unusual for him). So who is his tailor in this case? Thanks for bringing Pitti to life, Scott.

    This picture is great but not exactly “on the street”. It is shot inside Fortezza di Basso. Why not label it “@ Pitti Uomo”?

    Slick suit! With a curious cuff.

    Is that Luca with the paisley elbows?

    That has got to be the most delicious coloured suit ever made, love the cuff details.

    Colour aside, what an interesting cuff choice for a suit jacket.

    The cuffs and distinctive stitching along the sleeves are such discreet, yet subtle details. Great inspiration for the next appointment with your tailor.

    Simply perfect.
    That bending on the sleeve is the cherry on top.
    So damn cool.

    The tailoring is exquisite…that pickstitching the length of the sleeve seam is SO Italian. The color head to toe is almost over the top but he pulls it off.

    The sunglasses. Anyone?

    Style, quirkiness, beauty and coolness in the form of a person.

    Someone says genial….I know, we talking about style, but we hope to see another kind of man on Sartorialist. This is a very bad example and not a model of elegance in life . The style is also intelligence and behavior, not only beautiful dresses.

      June 22, 2014 at 4:56 am

      give him a chance, i think we are going to start seeing a new Lapo

    Lovely suit, it’s like a water wave that comes from the Caribbeans and arrives to the city.

    Nice color, nice sleeve cuff treatment, nice fit but non vented suits look so old to me these days…when I see them, I wonder “when is the last time you bought a suit?”

  61. Robert Beukema

    July 28, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    It’s all about the bandana patch!

  62. Robert Beukema

    July 28, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    It’s all about the other guy’s bandana elbow patch!
