Other important things to do if you want to emulate Italian man-ness...
- tuck in all shirts. You might not be able to pull this off without an accent though.
- always wear a belt. You cannot leave the house without a belt. It is kind of like that rule for women where you should never leave the house without earrings.
- no flip-flops unless you're at the pool, beach, or shower.
- wear sockettes. That bare ankle look of Italian men is talked about all the time, but I have a sneaky suspicion that they are not wearing their shoes senza socks. You might want to invest in those teeny-tiny socks that don't peek out over your shoes.
- tailor everything.
- tight pants, 'nough said.
- start a sunglass collection, first up...Ray Ban Aviators.
- don't skimp on outerwear, If you're going to be out on the streets of Milan in winter, it's chilly and you can't go around flashing your immaculate suit that's hidden underneath a hideous jacket. Look for a wool overcoat in a classic color like navy or beige and for God's sake, if you buy anything with fur, make sure it's real.
Now for more photos of Italian men you wish were your boyfriends. The fact that some of these men are clearly old enough to be my father or grandfather but yet are so darn attractive to me really creeps me out, anyone else?
