Outside of jeans, denim clothing is an acquired taste. Sergio Rossi, however, has created a rather fetching denim lace-up shoe with a bright yellow rubber sole (left; HK$5,070). Just make sure you wear them with chinos -- do not commit the cardinal sin of Double Denim. If that's a step too far, the bi-colour leather lace-up brogue (above; HK$6,710) is a pleasing compromise. Sergio Rossi is in Pacific Place, tel: 2918 0872.
Fun in the sun
If you can't get to Tuscany this year, why not pretend otherwise, with a summer ensemble from Salvatore Ferragamo of khaki jacket (HK$15,900) and trousers (HK$5,200) along with the white shirt (HK$4,500) and brown shoes (all above right; HK$2,850).

Salvatore Ferragamo is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2845 2718.
