La Grande Bellezza, an Oscar! #lagrandebellezza #oscar #italy #italia
Keep it simple.
I favor minimalism, simplicity, sophistication, quality & elegance in all things. The Royal Oak is the sportwatch embodiment of this philosophy. A true grail if there ever was one. Preferably in 39 mm.
The man in the grey flannel suit, a timeless classic.
Bonus point 1: Italo tie, with the red, white, blue floral motif. I’m guessing Marinella.
Bonus point 2: no belt. Belts with suits are overrated. I find that they break the line of the outfit with a strip of leather. Instead, try side fasteners for suits and formal trousers and keep the belt for your jeans & chinos.
Negative point 1: pocket square. Say no to light blue pocket squares, especially in combination with a blue shirt and tie. Also, the only pocket square that should be folded in a sharp rectangle is a white linen one. Better option: a rich motif, with hints of cream, deep red and a dash of gold, why not. And silk, to contrast with the coarser suit material but complement the tie’s fabric.
Negative point 2: belt loops. If you’re going beltless, remove the belt loops if possible, please. It’s much classier and doesn’t give the impression something is missing.
Negative point 3: Clubmaster sunglasses. Purely personal taste, I just don’t like them.
