The Guide: The Milan Belt Knot

For several days now, Tommy Ton has been photographing the best Milan's men of style have to offer in behalf of GQ. Unsurprisingly, those goddamn Italians are holding it down unbelievably, with clothes that are so well-fitting, a play of color that is so refreshing, and an understanding of personal style that is so inspiring. Needless to say, we can all learn a thing or two from these dashing men of fine taste, and, true enough, I just happened to pick up a simple style trick which can add a little flair to any outfit.

Belts are often the most ignored item of a man's outfit, but not to these people. They made it a point to go out of their way and knot their belts so that all y'all can see them. A little effort and bam, instant eye-catchers. As you will notice, it doesn't matter if your belt is made of leather, canvas, or nylon, if it's too long, all the better! Actually makes me feel better that my recent bargain belt at Robinson's Department Store is a bit longer as it should be. It will be the first test to this belt knot phenomenon that's apparently all the rage in the legendarily stylish land of Milan.

Do it with muted leather belts...

...or sportier nylon or canvas numbers!

Those Italians, they know how to add that attitude!
