The clothing genius of Gianni Agnelli lies not in the relatively radical cut of his suit. Rather, it is the combination of light grays in his necktie and jacket at a time when a man's business dress was typically a charcoal suit with a white shirt and a charcoal tie. In other words, an even more monochromatic combination than Agnelli's brother is wearing in the photo.
As the photo illustrates, complex color combinations are not necessary for an elegant look. Fit, styling and texture are more than enough.
Though I wish he was wearing a pocket square.
