Certain Italian men take the late Giavanni Agnelli's studied carelessness a step too far, in my opinion, and that is in the deliberate mis-buttoning (is that a word?) of their jackets.
I rarely approach perfection in my dress and so have never felt the need to look like I am really just a man who cannot even button his coat correctly. Indeed, on those rare days when I do achieve a sort of simple elegance, the last thing on my mind is how I might make it look less studied.
In the photo, Prescott Bush, United States Senator, father of George H. W. Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush, hosts a golf tournament in his white trousers and with his jacket buttoned at the bottom button, something for which it was not designed. Sprezzatura?
