Milano is the best place to suit up and play Italian, with a good chunk of men dressing up in incredibly elegant suits, It’s always fun to see how each individual adds his own twist to his outfit. So while I was in Milan for fashion week, I made sure to take some time to show you how I like to put together a summer suit attire.
The (not so good) thing about flying to Italy during the summer months, is that it gets really hot in the city, with temperature rising above 30C; So it’s always a challenge to look amazing while keeping fresh and cool: My suggestions for that matter, are plain and simple:
1) wear a blazer or a suit that’s made of a breathable material (such as Linen)
2) pick light colours and try to avoid dark colours such as Black (they absorb the light, hence the reason why a Black suit would feel like it’s on fire after 5 minutes in the sun)
and last but not least
3) loosen up the collar of your shirt. That doesn’t only scream Italian, but it also allows your neck and skin to get some air.
In this editorial, I’ve picked and styled one of my favourite Ice double breasted blazer, with a Paisley-print light blue shirt all by Duchamp (The British brand that offers incredible classic tailoring with a twist). And a pair of Cobalt micro-dot trousers by Reiss. Loafers seemed to be the only kind of shoes to match the whole attire!
The photos were taken in one of my favourite and impressive locations in Milano; Stazione Centrale.
