The Italian Job - Summer looks

The Italian Job Summer looks is a collection of photos depicting Italian gents within the clothing industry of Italy. Here we can see how those who influence the everyday gent assemble their own clothing for the day. Quite inspirational, the putting together of colours, cloth, accessories  and putting it all together to make an everlasting timeless impression. Why not get inspired by these gents.

  1. It's amazing how much better Italians look in clothes than my fellow Americans .. Our clothing here is typically WAY to big, we are too fat, and don't know how to put together an outfit. It's amazing what fit and a little confidence can do to an ensemble. Thanks SA

  2. Hi Brad,

    Thanks for your comment. True that the Italian gents pull a better look when it comes to clothing. In my humble opinion the Americans wear too big or rather oversized clothing and that does not flatter anyone. Well in regards to the fatness, I will not comment. As you put it, a bit of fitted clothing, assemble and put the whole thing together and of course a great deal portion of confidence. I think here two keywords are: Confidence and fitted clothing. Assembling the whole look comes with time and age I suppose, buy not necessarily but a bit of flair makes wonders.

    Thanks to you and continue a pleasant weekend.

    Best regards
