    I'm impressed. Here in Italy, Lapo is not such an idol as he seems by these comments!
    He's quite an eccentric, controversial and strange guy; and he's funny with his elegance, more than "the epitome of Italian" something! Anyway, nice colors, and great shot :-)

    It is part of the Fiat Group. Fiat owns the largest shares in Chrysler, which owns Jeep. He owns the entire car company for god's sake. He's trying to make a statement imo. Plus, he already has a Ferrari with a denim interior and a matte black Maserati. I see he also painted his jeep matte.

    He looks good, but not his aesthetically-challenged vehicle.

    Instead of sitting on it, he should have stood as far from it as possible. His father had far better taste in motorcars.

    Awful. Srue, you can pull of sneakers to a suit like that, but these look like he just came from futsal-practice. Not a fan of the lapels or the thick socks. Finally, I don't think what he's wearing work well together. Come on, turtleneck sweater underneath a 70's suit of almost the same color (?), big thick socks and sport shoes (?) and to top it off a shirt peaking out from underneath the turtleneck. The glasses are pretty nice though. He should however contemplate washing his hair every now and then.

    I like brown suits. I have had an obsession with them ever since reading Agatha Christie's The Man in the Brown Suit but I never managed to find one that I could wear (well I have a brown Lanvin suit but it has very thin blue stripes & even the brown is a mix of two browns really).

    This one is nice – what are the lapels made of? Leather? Satin?

    Very odd – too odd for the office but nice.
