Brilliant Sartorialist! Iâ€™m from NZ & itâ€™s so hard to find a well-cut, crisp white shirt in this small part of the world. If I could find one Iâ€™d wear it with everything (like this guy) and probably buy one for every day of the week! Have you got any ideas Scott? ie. ordering online etc. -Ep
Refined shorts certainly are quite hard to find! Paul Smith is where I usually look, he had some fantastic tailored shorts in his S/S 2006 range, though I had to travel to the other side of the world to finally track them down.
Okay, but I thought this was supposed to be the season of the short for men. Yes, the closure is cute but does it veer into gimmickry? therr mus be better shorts out there. I think his shorts are too high on the waist and a bit long, the sockless loafer isn’t that great either, and the messenger bag is so, well, messenger no?
oh, come on, why don’t you wear a big “tourist” badge while you’re at it? I mean, great Ferragamos, crisp shirt, but you really don’t do bermudas in the city in Milan if you’re over 21. ok, nice looking tourist, no hard feelings, but catch that train to Portofino, you have just the right style.
Not bad, the look is clean and elegant and would be great if this were Capri or Positano in July; however, in Milano, and in April, the shorts are a nicht-nicht, as Bruno the Austiran fashionista would say. In fact in any major Italian city, the sure way to announce you are a tourist is to wear shorts (even in August). At least he’s wearing loafers.
