“The brown belt and shoes bring an Italian refinement to the ensemble…”
Luigi “Geno” Auriemma is WWD’s Man of the Week.
We know that we have been reboot-heavy in these parts as of late. We are drawing a line here.

“Moved to tears.” Many of us invoke the phrase; some actually mean it. We might tear up at witnessing true nobility of action, nature’s grandeur, or the beauty of a piece of art.
Daisy Buchanan wept over shirts. Shirts of sheer linen and thick silk and fine flannel, which lost their folds as they fell and covered the table in many-colored disarray…shirts with stripes and scrolls and plaids in coral and apple-green and lavender and faint orange, and monograms of Indian blue.
In one short, famous scene, F. Scott Fitzgerald telegraphs the intense power of fashion: The ability of clothes to reveal who we are either by accident of birth and other unavoidable circumstance or who we aspire to be by active pursuit. In extreme cases clothes may even suggest quality of character or depth of soul. Particularly in period fiction exploring social mores, a character’s style often reflects the core of his or her substance.
