A few days ago the Australian daily The Age also recognized that "Italian men just dress better". While talking about her first trip to Italy, the journalists Nedahl Stelio described Italy as her "favourite country to visit". According to Stelio, the European nation is beautiful thanks to its "amazing sights, gorgeous food, great coffee and ... all the men's ankles". Yes ankles, as Italian men have the beautiful habit of rolling up their pant legs "to show off a smooth, brown ankle - foot casually ensconced in either a leather sandal or tie-up shoe. Without socks, of course".
It is only when you see it that you realize that the way in which men dress is not just functional, but can be sexy, when they care about details. In Italy, however, it becomes evident how natural this talent for finding the right colour, style and combination can be. Shoes, clothes designs and fabrics, sunglasses, everything is superior in Italy. Just like women, "Italian men experiment and succeed in creating a 'look'".
"Most Australian gents (like their brothers in Britain and the US), tend to stick to a certain rather standard dress code", but in Italy, and only in Italy to be fair, it is another story. "Tailored jackets in standout colours, interesting style combinations and accessories such as hats, handkerchiefs, scarves and suspenders" are mixed in the perfect possible way to shape an outstanding sophisticated persona. And even if they won't be able to replicate this style, Nedahl Stelio believes every man should embrace it. Moreover, a short holiday in Italy can prove that Italians have not given up with comfort and functionality; they are just able to find the right pieces to feel comfortable and trendy at the same time.
