Style:

Jeans JKL (my own brand). They’re cut neither slim nor baggy, let’s call them “fitted”.
Shoes Blue suede by Tod’s.
Suit Dolce & Gabbana with medium rise in the front. In blue to match my skin tone and eyes.
Boxer shorts I wouldn’t know.
Socks We have a lot of fun with socks in our family; we have socks of every shape, colour and design. I like a thin dress sock more than a thick one.
Sunglasses Dolce & Gabbana aviators
Sneakers Nike Free Runs, 2011 edition.
Wallet My brother-in-law gave me the wallet I have now. I like a very thin wallet. He found me a really nice leather one in Brazil.
