Italian men and impeccable style are synonymous. They have a way of exuding the right mélange of gentlemanly panache and rugged edge. They wear splashy colors and flamboyant pairings with assurance we don’t see so often on American men. And sometimes their prowess gives the ladies a run for their money! Even when it comes to shoes. The men of Milan have been strutting their stuff in front of the menswear shows this week, proving that when it comes to dressing with joie de vivre, girls don’t have all the fun. Check out the looks captured by Tommy Ton for Style.com and The Sartorialist.
Guys can color-block, too! And with verve, to boot. Chestnut oxfords, otherwise traditional, are superhero-worthy when the toes are tip in neon acid yellow. Checkered pants pump it up with pattern precision.
It’s all in the details. Wearing a structured black dress shoe as if it’s a sandal is kind of genius. With schoolboy shorts and a summery tunic, the look is somehow effortless. The unlaced right oxford makes it!
Wild things come in threes! Bright pants, structured blazers, pocket squares, ties, and sockless loafers – a trio of men dressed like such dandies sounds like it could be a disaster, but in Italia, it works!
Even mellow yellow Converse sneakers look luxe when color-coordinated, accessorized to the nines and worn with preppy spirit.
