Plaid on plaid, Florence


The reason that Al Bazar's Lino Ieluzzi is Sartorialist #1 in my book is that he's maintained a certain visual vocabulary—slim pants, monk-strap shoes, spread-collar shirts—while playing with the individual elements.

Here, I love the idea of a plaid DB being worn as a sportcoat (I don't see that very often) and I really love the idea of the plaid tie with the plaid jacket. This combination might be something you would see on a store display and think "too much," but on Lino it looks so natural.

I wonder if this outfit is Ralph Lauren. It looks to be RL Purple Label Style. Love the key/watch chain. Things I don't love ... seems like the little English style collar is too small for the shape of his head, makes his head seem to big for his body. Especially with that tie knot. Also, The ticket pocket may be a bit too much when wearing a suit jacket as a sportcoat for most people. This guy looks like he could pull it off though.
