This stuff is not easy, but a search for well dressed contemporary public figures in the world has turned up a couple that I will present for your consideration in the coming week. As always, the focus is only on a man's dress. Saint or sinner, other personal characteristics are irrelevant.
Our first new style icon became visible as the head of the house of Valentino after it was acquired by his family company in 2002, and though he was not treated with either sympathy or respect in Valentino Garavani's documentary The Last Emperor, Matteo Marzotto consistently presents a well dressed image to the world.
Marzotto displays a commitment to well-cut and slightly informal lounge suits that works well for him. His combination of wardrobe depth and quiet taste makes him a contemporary example of good dress.
