The Kindness Of Strangers & The Agnelli Tie
I have always heard that Gianni Agnelli had a quirk for wearing his tie outside of his sweater.
The other day ,while I was walking on the Hyeres boardwalk, I found a gentleman that not only shared this little style quirk but wore it with the same level of sprezzatura as l'Avvocato.
When I asked to him to take his photo he politely declined (i think it was polite but i don't speak French).
Anyway, as I was trying to explain why i wanted to take his photo a young man that knew my blog saw i was having a tricky time so he stepped in and explained (in French) who I was and what I wanted to do.
This apparently did the trick because as you see I ended up getting the shot - thanks to the kindness of strangers or the kindness of my audience!!)
