The three “S’s” of Italian street styles are undeniably suits, scarves, and slim fit jeans. After two weeks of travelling all over Italy, it was evident that the typical man’s outfit was not complete without one, if not all, of these three “S’s”.
Slim fit jeans, when tucked into leather ankle boots, add a rock and roll aura to an outfit.
In Venice: A leather jacket and khaki suit pants when combined are casual, yet polished.
In Venice: Bring your suit into summer with a light linen blazer over a denim oxford shirt.
In Milan: Don’t let your style go to the dogs, even in inclement weather. Stay savvy with a neutral duster trench.
In Florence: Spice up the ordinary with a pair of mustard slim-fit chinos. Bonus points if you add a graphic tee and scarf.
In Florence: Even the Italian carabinieri (military police) are dressed to the nines.
In Venice: A classic black blazer and khaki chinos are a perfect representation of chiaroscuro (the contrast between light and dark).
In Venice: This David Beckham lookalike looks back to the ’90’s grunge scene with his sleeveless shirt, plaid flannel, and leather sneakers.
In Rome: Don’t let your button-up be boring. Add some visual interest by investing in a shirt with a bold alternating pattern of stripes and a small print.
In Milan: Good style knows no age. This variation on a three piece suit substitutes matching pants for charcoal chinos, and a cardigan instead of a vest.
In Milan: Add a pop of color in the form a bold tie to your every day suit.
In Milan: Another example of a duster trench and perfectly tailored suit.
