Is Diego Della Valle The New Agnelli

The late Gianni Angelli was an Italian style icon. Sartorialists around the world have copied his carefully studied "nonchalant" quirks of dressing. Recently I've seen photos of Diego Della Valle ,the Sartorialistic owner of Tod's, sporting the Agnelli patented no-buttoning-the-button-down-collar look and the suit with sport shoes look. In the photo above he even dares to reproduce one of my favorites, the rarely copied tie-outside-the-sweater look.

To his credit, Della Valle is trying to create a few memorable "items of flare" for himself. At Italian football games Della Valle has taken to wearing his sweater over a color-coordinated cashmere scarf.

Should we name this look? What have you got?

We can name it in France the "BOBO" style for BOurgeois BOhème..for an "Happy Few" not proud of it.....Martin from have the same style (with less the money).

The "swarf". Sweater + scarf. I say you could even use it as a verb, as in, "That would be a really cool outfit, if you'd just go ahead and swarf it for an extra layer".

Enjoy your posts on SF.

How about the "security blanket look" for those who need the attention
