Portrait Of A Stylish Italian Gentleman
An early 20th-century portrait of a young Italian gentleman wearing a stylish loose-fitting ‘sack suit’. In around 1910, when this portrait was created, gentleman often wore long baggy suit jackets with broad lapels. These could be either single or double-breasted, with the latter being the right choice for a slender figure.
Moustaches were also all the rage.
