Towards the end of the trip

I realized what it is about Italy, in the cities atleast, that can be so intimidating. Everyone wears closes that are fitted, regardless of whether they are dressing up or dressing down. People may just be bumming around town but their t-shirts are square with their shoulders. I'm told that there is a dark side to this "simple elegance" but it's hard -- even if you are perfectly secure in your self-image and don't give a lick about fashion -- not to feel like a bit of a boob and a slob standing next to it.
