What's Italian for "tw*t?"

(full disclosure: I owned one EZ wool blazer about 10 years ago)
New campaign, probably done in-house, for men's fashion label Ermenegildo Zenga. Off-the-shelf fashion execution #14; choose a cliché or colloquial phrase; dress pretty models in your clothing; try to shoot what lamely looks like "a moment in time"; slap on line. Voila!
previously in stupid fashion ads:
1. ...because the little pony wasn't douchey enough.
2. Uniqlo antelope.
3. Jimmy Choo: shoes to die for.
4. Diesel woos fcuk hoi polloi.
5. DEAD is the new BLACK.
6. Gays don't shop Daffys.

To be elegant you've got to be a wop?

C'mon, son... Step up! These creampuffs are total horseshit.

This drivel is as insightful as criticizing sports analysts who use terms like, "He gives 110%...", "his motor is always running...", and "he's a captain on the field."

We expect, no.... we DEMAND better out of you!

Why are they so excited about wearing their grandfather's clothes? I believe EZ is stealing design ideas from sansabelt trousers.

Oh dear. I just looked up 'Il Twatto' in my Italian-English dictionary and that picture was in there. Cheese-tastic.

Yeah, hi from the Eternal City. I live among these twats. I think this particular brand is the "figlio di papà" - the sort of entitled twat whose mamma continues to slave over his Ermenogildo Zegna laundry well into his 40s.
