Day 2 @ Lake Como

The second day of our vacation we spent touring around the town of Bellagio.  For the day I wore my new cotton/linen slacks from Finealta, Isaia chambray-shirt and suede loafers by Christian Kimber.

For dinner put on the Tombolini striped blazer and brown silk knitted tie by Sauma. Pink camouflage pocket square from P.Johnson Tailors.
