This month’s 10 rules are by Marni creative director Consuelo Castiglioni. As usual there are a couple of universal rules (find your own style, don’t follow every trend, etc) but she also brings up the vanity of Italian men, citing men in suits that are slightly too small for them and the importance of shoes.
She states: “Shoes define the kind of man you are. They should never be too trendy or showy but lean toward the classic. There are a lot of ugly shoes out there, and they can ruin even the most sophisticated attire.” Having seen ugly shoes every day on the tube, I’d have to agree with this statement.
