Tommaso has style. It is not loud, and it’s unlikely to stand out at Pitti, but it is subtle and personal, much as I wish mine to be. He used to run a menswear shop in Florence and this unlined jacket is one of theirs, with trousers from Giabs (good Italian producer, mostly wholesale but some reatail). He uses a local tailor in Florence for suits, made with narrow, high-waisted trousers and 2-inch turn-ups.
This image was taken the night we arrived, as he waited outside Sostanza, slowly smoking his Tuscan cigar. Next morning, it was navy long-sleeved polo and old, pale jeans. In both cases, with well-worn Bemer shoes.
