A man should properly be channeling an Italian vibe before he wears a summer suit without socks (that is the very Italian Pier Luigi Loro Piana in the foreground of the photo, with his brother and co-CEO Sergio). But when the occasion is right, and any sunny day in the country might do, the combination of a linen suit and slip-on shoes worn sockless is timeless.
Combine the shoes and suit with a knit necktie and an open weave shirt of cotton voile or one of its opaque modern equivalents. Then find a shady spot and relax.
