4 ITALIAN STYLE ICONS YOU SHOULD STEAL STYLE TRICKS FROM
Perhaps the best dressed men in Italy. These are the ones to watch – and then steal from. Style wise of course.
Having focused on Italy in the last two posts, we of course couldn’t avoid talking about some of the style icons. Because if someone should teach you anything about getting dressed, Italian men is pretty high on the list. Especially these four. What is special with all of these is their personal style. They dresses in their own unique way, and if you take anything from this article it should be that you should try to find what works for you. And dress like this very often. That’s what makes a style icon.
The true winner of Pitti Uomo’s streetstyle. Squarzi is the master of understated Italian cool, with a bit of American lean to it. Think military jackets, jeans and great shirts. If you’ve ever wondered how to wear white trousers with ease, see Squarzi, and emulate.
Perhaps the most photographed Italian suit-maker ever? Ieluzzi runs his own menswear shop in Milano – why it makes sense he is wearing all these amazing suits all the time. Known for his personal tie with his favorite number 7 embroided into the tie. Pretty cool, if you ask us. Also, when it comes to his love for shoes his favorite is double monk-straps. He wears them pretty well, if you ask us.
Mr. Agnelli also known as L’Avvocato (“The Lawyer”) is unfortunately not with us anymore, but that doesn’t mean he cannot teach us a thing or two on getting dressed. The former head of FIAT was a true master of all sartorial things and also a rule-breaker. For example, he didn’t always like to put the back of the tie into the loop, why he preferred to let it loose. Likewise, unlike most of his business associates he preferred casual loafers when wearing his suits.
Fashion designer and founder of the brand that goes under his name. You often see him in a navy cashmere blazer, a perfect tied tie, a button down Oxford shirt and a tailored pair of light trousers. We love his style as he makes even his most tailored looks appeal in some casual sense – perhaps thanks to his ever focus on cashmere?
