Overdressed, showy peacocks:

Relaxed, comfortable look, showing sense of sprezzatura:

Maybe not, but, as Hugo says, "sprezzatura" is exactly the opposite of flamboyance and ostentatiousness. So those "peacocks" full of bracelets, rings, and in other wise sceaming for attention show anything but sprezzatura.
I think Mr. Smith has got it right. The original meaning collapses in the face of modern-day practical usage.

The Book of the Courtier should be mandatory reading for any menswear enthusiast who is unable to cope without using the word sprezzatura

Did I mention that Jacomet's wife leverages their daughter's double mastectomy to make their business venture more marketable? View attachment 37288

Mentally ill that people who does cuts on themselves.

Here another case of Borderline personality disorder, that is a side effect of sons of psychopath and malignant narcissist parents as this is clearly a case who inflict deep trauma on their sons.

You can guess if I ended being a lumpen asking 1 euro for coffee in the corners of Naples and shilling for free cash.😢

I am so ugly that Craptom never accepted me as bestboy to move their 908347894378983 handbags of suits everytime he takes a flight to review the best tailor in the world for each post.

What happened to the plan to big-up the Sicilian tailors as the last frontier of maestro tailoring.

Was the flight time to Falcone-Borsellino too long?

Hugo tells a good story here about a bloke at Pitti. The section is about messy meals that ruin suits (spagetti). Quite funny.

8:48 onwards

Spagetti can ruin a suit, a shirt and a tie. It can ruin an entire outfit. It spits at ya.

He should get Sir Les Patterson on his show.

I’m curious, what was Jacomet’s background before he launched his blog? His style is so over-the-top-flamboyant that I’m guessing some artistic/creative field.

His outfits are not necessarily what I would wear myself, but he provides excellent pieces of information and seems genuinely passionate about clothes.

My dad knew Sir Les Patterson /Dame Edna in the old days, he was a real joker in real life. He even brought a dead body in a restaurant making out the bloke was drunk, and he left him to pay the bill. No trouble over the dead body (got it from the Uni or something), he was a real aussie scallywag.

I saw him once, with a young women in a famous Melbourne restaurant in a very cosy position.

Indeed. He used to bring Russian salad onto aeroplanes, which he would furtively empty into a sick bag. Later on in the flight he would be observed eating from the sick bag with a spoon.
