Gentleman dressing at the Concorsa D'Eleganza della Villa D'Este

Attending a premier vintage car event is also an opportunity to observe well dressed gentlemen and beautiful ladies mingle with the exotic vintage cars. I was a guest of A. Lange & Sohne attending the Concorso, the premier vintage car event held annually in the shores of Lake Como in Italy at the Vila D'Este grand hotel.

I am hoping I will have time to cover several well dressed gentlemen as examples to dress for spring. First, an older gentleman, looking wonderful in his white/beige suit, and beautiful shoes.

Beautifully tailored linen suit, with a flashy checked bow tie on a wing collar, and panaman hat. With his horn rimmed glasses, he certainly looked the part of a well dressed gentleman at his favourite pursuit of enjoying his motor car in the beautiful Como sun. Love the sprezzatura look of his wind blown hair too.

Note the sleevehead...just beautiful how the tailor...I suspect Neapolitan, fits the large sleevehead into the smaller arm hole, resulting in ripples across the top of the sleeve, creating this magnificent cascading effect.

And love the beautiful two tone saddle shoes

I wished I had worked up the courage to talk to him and discuss his clothes, but I didn't. I don't quite remember if he was the gentleman, but if I am not mistaken his good taste also extended to his watch...a Roger Smith Series 1 strapped on his wrist.

I would say that was a good one.
