The Italian Background

If you wear a jacket in a bold and/or light pattern, the Italians realised that you should combine that with solid colour shirt and tie. The most classic version is a light blue shirt with a navy tie, often called the “Italian Background” To add some texture the tie works best if it’s knitted or, as in this case, in a grenadine fabric. Jacket from Zegna, Attolini shirt, tie from Poszetka, Richard James ps. pants from Incotex and Sanders shoes. Scent: Hiram Green Slowdive.
