Mac­chi­ato Man

Esquire (UK) - - Style -

Though UK win­ter tem­per­a­tures rarely drop be­low 5ºC, you can be sure that from the start of Septem­ber till the end of March, Mac­chi­ato Man will sport his uni­form of wet-look puffer jacket, ul­tra-slim jeans, hefty walk­ing boots and over­sized sun­glasses day in, day out (though he’ll swap the puffer for a padded gilet be­neath his Neapoli­tan suit on smarter days). Highly prac­ti­cal (per­ma­nent­fix­ture shades not­with­stand­ing), Mac­chi­ato Man also has a thing for fu­tur­is­tic-look­ing luxe train­ers from Ho­gan, Tod’s and Prada; and ap­pears about as ready for an af­ter­noon of heli-ski­ing as he does for a Satur­day stroll to Par­tridges on the Kings Road (noth­ing like some over­priced tartufo secco to re­ally get the week­end go­ing). Con­ve­niently, Mac­chi­ato Man’s young wife and chil­dren dress ex­actly the same way he does, so win­ter shop­ping trips are done and dusted be­fore you can say “pasta po­modoro”.

The garb: Moncler puffer jacket, slim black jeans, Ho­gan or Tod’s train­ers, mas­sive black sun­glasses.

The habi­tat: The King’s Road, May­fair, Mi­lan.

The ac­ces­sory: A tiny, tiny dog.
