Inspiring interviews and the latest updates from the world of fine tailoring.
The fashion agent and style-icon Alessandro Squarzi shows us how to age playfully.
The biggest pitfall for men who dress according to traditional men’s fashion is to become too classic and thus too much like an old man. How can one avoid that?
The first step is to take a look at the Italian fashion agent and style-icon Alessandro Squarzi. This almost entirely grey-haired gentleman is not afraid of dressing in a chalk-striped tailor-made suit one day and wearing a double-breasted jacket over a t-shirt and sporting chequered Vans the next.
Don’t let what you wear take you for a walk, but take what you wear for a stroll, is how he has summarised his style.
When he’s not seen at fashion weeks in Milan or Florence (where this photo was taken last summer) you can find Alessandro in his showroom in Bologna ( www.alessandrosquarzi. com) and on Instagram – @alessandrosquarzi. Click Follow and get a really inspirational kick!
