Guest post from the team at Hot Fencer Of The Day

It has often been commented that Italians know fashion. I’m sure we can postulate that everyone knows fashion, if in some cases it is simply to avoid being fashionable (intentionally or unintentionally as the case may be). But it appears to be a globally accepted meme that Italians do it better than most.
Whilst fencing whites create an air of athleticism, dignity and danger/mystery to the sabreur (ok, that last one may be apocryphal), I believe we can all agree, that in terms of what socially normalised ideas of Fashion are, they don’t really cut the (insert noun here as long as it’s not cheese). So what happens to hot fencers in dubiously fashionable fencing garb when they step from that world in to the world of the beau monde?
