Those Europeans sure have the monopoly on style and sophistication. Just look at the impeccably dressed men from Paris and Milan that grace the pages of Scott Schuman’s thesartorialist.com if you need proof.
You may have daydreamed of a guy named Serge, pashmina wrapped artfully round his neck, whisking you off to a bar in Paris St Germain to drink Pastis and talk about your favourite french films. Or a bespoke suit wearing Marcello, in black Persol sunglasses, picking you up in his Alfa Romeo and driving you to a bar on Via Spiga, Milan to drink multi Amaretto on ice and plan your next holiday in Sardinia. Either way the music playing in Serge or Marcello’s bar of choice might be something like the Playlist below.
