Villa d'Este.

In 1550, Cardinal Ippolito d’Este spent a fortune creating a folie de grandeur (frescoed ceilings, brilliant mosaics, endless rooms, and a spectacular water garden).

Recently, I read about a man who also owns an estate, a sort of American Villa d’Este. He works cheek to jowl with his Portuguese gardener, planting seeds, telling jokes in Portuguese.

I saw him once at the Guggenheim in New York, wearing a dense, Japanese block print shirt like his one, and jeans. Nothing fancy.

What’s intriguing is that people walking by still exchanged whispers, still knew he was somebody; he still looked like he belonged on an estate somewhere, somehow.

It probably wouldn’t look bad on you, either. No estate required.

Villa Shirt (No. 3640). Daringly, deliberately simply, suggests you’re sufficiently successful that you needn’t bother twisting yourself in knots trying to impress anybody. I had this classic made in India with 100% light soft cotton fabric. Seven buttons down center front and one on collar stand. Imported.
