Take a Lesson From Lapo

It's not cool looking like a banker these days, haven't you heard? Back in 2005, an expensive suit was a sign you'd made it. But that was then. "Now, with public sentiment against financial institutions still high, racks of expensive Italian beauties languish in shops across the country," the Times reports. In other words, modesty is in; flashiness is out. If that isn't enough to help you decide whether an outfit reflects this new pared-down aesthetic, think of it this way: Avoid anything that Lapo Elkann might wear. After the jump, the international playboy and Fiat heir will show you how not to dress in these unpretentious times.
