When it comes to men in fashion, it’s often difficult to find someone who’s honed a style that blends the interesting and ever-so-slightly outré with the refined and classic. Francesco Cominelli, assistant editor at Vogue Hommes, makes it seem – as the cliché goes – all so effortless.
^ The restrained but sophisticated document wallet and double-breasted blazer are off-set by the forest green trousers.
^ I knew leather jackets were wardrobe classics but whether this trés chic reinterpretation has me planning a trip to the naff vintage stores in search of an oversized biker jacket. Also, this shade of blue jeans should be inducing wretching but Cominelli saves it with a slim belt.
^ Proving he also does casual tee and trousers combo to perfection. The detail at the cuffs of the tee, with the pattern of the trousers makes for a surprisingly strong impact considering the monochrome palette.
^ Usually frayed edges wouldn’t appeal but Cominelli makes it utterly convincing using luxe fabrics, a mlutch and curiously tied belt. One of my favourite looks ever. For sure.
^ I never really got the appeal of candy-coloured suits but beautifully neutralised by jet black accessories, Cominelli assures it’s possible outside a London club setting.
