Antonio K. Ciongoli
What are you wearing?
"A custom linen windowpane sport coat, Michael Bastian blue/white-striped spread-collar shirt, vintage grosgrain D-ring belt, custom stone trousers, Stubbs & Wootton for Michael Bastian navy seersucker formal slippers, black Ray-Ban aviators, vintage World War I trench watch, and my father's lapel rosette."
How do you make your style work for you?
"If your clothes are comfortable, you'll look comfortable. This applies to a three-piece suit as much as it does to a T-shirt and chinos."
Is there anything special behind what you have on?
"I try to wear at least one thing that belonged to my father every day (today it was his lapel rosette). It's a small, simple way to keep him in my memory."
What should every man have in his closet, and why?
"A few pale blue shirts. It's easy to get carried away with stripes and plaids, but at the end of the day, no shirt is more versatile or flattering on every guy."
Describe your style:
"A little Italian, a little Vermont—my style is my background."
