The Cardinal Man

    
Elegance is not about money. It’s a matter of personality and Mr. Filippone has it. Our Melbourne based fashion influencer ‘The Cardinal Man’ knows what clothes to choose from. He knows exactly how to recreate fashion without abandoning his unique style. Like Oceans 11 - Brad Pitt, the suits are impeccable, summery and bold. His impeccable outfits and the impressive choice of colors make him a proud addition to our Men of OTAA.
