Style tips from a former Navy Officer


If you know me, you probably know that before launching my brand Massimo Roma, I spent 17+ years in the Italian Navy. During this time  I cultivated an obsession with “perfection” that’s in place every time I create a new custom-tailored garment.

Today I want to share 5 style inspirations that I developed while working as an officer in the Italian Navy:

1 – Attention-to-details:

David Beckham – His attention to details is always right on point.

The devil is in the details when it comes to military style.

Make sure to pay close attention to small details and accessories such as,  handkerchiefs, button colour, pocket designs, etc. These are the details that make or break a look.


2 – Invest in timeless, high-quality clothes:

Dark Gray suit goes with everything

Military style is all about keeping it simple and avoiding anything that is out of the ordinary. Stick to the basics and fit it to perfection.

Custom Tailored white shirt – Dark Grey (or Blue Navy) Suit.  Black Oxford Shoes are the PERFECT accompaniment to always look classy and command respect wherever you go. Dark Brown will also work for most outfits.


3 – Accessorize strategically:

A beautiful watch always makes a stylish impression

Think about what will best complement the outfit you’re wearing and add a touch of your own personality.

Choose quality items that can be mixed and matched easily and that will enhance the overall look.

A few key accessories like a watch, cufflinks, hat, scarf, or even a pocket square can take your outfit to the next level.


4 – Wear High Quality Shoes:

Brown wingtips work with almost any outift

A good shoe can make or break an outfit.

Match the color of your shoes to the color of your belt for a pulled-together look.

Two of the most stylish and versatile shoes are (1) Black or Dark Brown Wingtips and (2) Monk Straps.

These types of shoes make it easy to dress your outfit up or down.


5 – Neutral Colours Are KING:

Neutral colors are always a solid choice

White, Gray, Black and Beige.

These are timeless neutral colours that are versatile and easy to combine with other colors. And the best part? They never go out of style.


Hope this article inspired you to seek your “own perfection” and why not…..to look more stylish and confident!
