Clothier Luciano Barbera launched its Virtual Magazine earlier this month, featuring a rather nice piece by yours truly as well as a selection of good advice from the master himself. Luciano is in my opinion one of the best dressed men in the world, and his response to the question "How do I stay young forever?" is an Italianism (is that a word?) worth keeping in mind.
Alas, you can't and you won't. But wait, I have a solution. Knit ties. No, hear me out before you go to have "a little work done."
Knit ties are imperfect by nature.
The knot slips a bit. They fly in the wind. They pull over time.
They have a variable shape.
They are casual, playful, a kid dressed in his dad's clothes. Do you have a bulldog?
They are like a bulldog face. Imperfect, yet, beautiful.
Forever young? No. But they ooze sprezzatura, spirit, elegance. And, oh, if you don't have a dog, you might get one. I worry you are not getting out enough.
