I always look forward to when The Sartorialist goes to Florence to cover the men’s collections for his blog and Style.com. I love drooling of the well dressed European men who are almost always much more debonair than their American counterparts. I mean where else can a man wear wear a coat ever his shoulders and not only look hot but also not get made fun of by other men? Only in Italy my friends. Only in Italy. I think I might have to move there!

    Yes, yes. We can be neighbors once you get to Florence. I lust after the Italian style on The Sartorialist as well. Makes you curse Old Navy and our men who get lured there.

    Perfect Bound, Sounds like a plan! I was just thinking that you would never see an Italian man in sweatpants or white sneakers. If they do wear sneakers, they are chic leather ones from Tod’s or Hognan. I just don’t understand why American men can’t get with the program.

    Ah, Italy…. the only place I’ve ever felt underdressed. And very likely the root of my obsession over the perfect brown suede shoes.

    Easy and Elegant, I can always spot an Italian Tourist in NYC. They are the only ones who look elegant and appropriate while wearing comfortable shoes. Amazing!

    Yes, I should clarify though that he’s Australian Italian – not quite the same breed, unfortunately, but he dresses a hell of a lot better than the average aussie bloke put it that way!

    yes, when I visited Italy I felt that I was actually being looked at; in the States you feel almost invisible and under-appreciated as a woman!
