Lapo Elkann

Like the controversy that can be sparked by Thom Browne's shruken suits, Lapo Elkann has also been a polarizing figure when it comes to men's style. Hier to the Fiat fortune, Elkann has been an oft discussed men's style figure. Often criticized as dandy and over affected, Elkann has what can only be described as a flamboyant fashion sense.

Double breasted suit jackets with large lapels, flowering pocket squares and a blonde mame are his staples. Whether you like his style sense or not, you can't say that it is not unique. He does what he wants, how he wants, and doesn't care what you think of it.

I like that.

I admire a man who lives life by his own rules. He makes up his own style. He isn't worried about what others think.

Definitely, most people are far to concerned with others perceptions.

Great blog.

First, does the man have a thyroid condition or does he attempt to look bug-eyed every time he poses for a photo?? Not attractive.

Second, I'd say his pants in the first photo are too tight. Generally, folks should not be able to discern immediately, from a mere glance, whether you dress right or left. TMI, IMO.
