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!
