Gianni Agnelli.

This dude was awesome. He was THE modern italian businessman. he was incredibly wealthy and totally sweet. here is his nytimes obit. he was known as a man of incredible taste and fashion. he achieved this by doing things in a very different and nuanced way. that is what B&N is all about.
from these two LIFE photos from 1967 you can see what I'm talking about.
his tie purposefully put to the side. and his watch over the buttoned sleeve. i'm going to try my tie to the side tomorrow, but everyone will assume i didn't look in the mirror before i left home. i'm sure that his watch is a patek philippe so until i bump up my wristwatch game i'll leave mine under my shirt.

look at this awesome suit. gianni only wore the finest bespoke suits.
