I LOVE a man that is well dressed when he gets to a certain age…
you can tell this guy's style has got better with time…
Love the blog as always <3
June 17, 2009 at 7:27 am
the buttons are so shiny!! i love how the jacket makes the shirt into an hourglassy shape :)
June 17, 2009 at 7:28 am
I like combinations with sneakers and a suit.
Peace and love !
June 17, 2009 at 7:33 am
classique! tres chic.
June 17, 2009 at 7:45 am
just great…there is nothing better than cropped pants in summer…
June 17, 2009 at 7:48 am
Somewhat Cute Totally;D
June 17, 2009 at 7:54 am
great blazer! it's all in the fit.hot belmondo-esque older guy
June 17, 2009 at 7:59 am
great Look…like his attitude.
June 17, 2009 at 8:00 am
I love this look for guys my age. Not wild about the brass, but everything else is lovely.
June 17, 2009 at 8:03 am
Love the top & blazer, but the pants look too short, proportion-wise with the blazer…beautiful shot though (barr the cigarette :))xx
June 17, 2009 at 8:19 am
Super! Love the slightly cropped pants, the sneakers with no socks, the stripes, the DB jacket (with brass buttons, no less!), worn casually. At a first glance a simple look, taken to the next level by these simple details! Genius!
Have fun in florence. good to have you back. hope to see you around.

How cute and fashionable ! LOVE IT
June 17, 2009 at 8:41 am
after long time, pretty good photo! Although vintage clothes is cool, this is better!
June 17, 2009 at 8:44 am
Love the Picasso look, so hep.I wonder where he is off to with such purpose?
June 17, 2009 at 8:51 am
June 17, 2009 at 8:52 am
Yep – that totally works for him
June 17, 2009 at 9:00 am
Love how the double-breasted jacket is worn here and how it unifies what would otherwise be an unremarkable casual look. I watched "Purple Noon" last night and this look is straight out of the film.
June 17, 2009 at 9:13 am
casual but elegant
This is what summer is all about..love the classic nautical look with collarless blazer..perfection!
June 17, 2009 at 9:19 am
I like to do this but my feet always end up smelling.Is that a cigarette it looks like one of those fake one's that help you to quit? maybe its a pen come to think of it!
June 17, 2009 at 9:26 am
…double breasted blazers are brilliant, easily messed up but when done properly they're killer.
for that reason they're a brave purchase, but one worth making to force your hand.
June 17, 2009 at 9:30 am
Great style. Like Popeye shopped at Berdorf's. Ark ark ark ark (Popeye laugh).
I want that blazer.
June 17, 2009 at 9:33 am
i think the jacket and pants work well together in terms of length–the jacket looks intentionally short to me–he's tilted forward and the front left quarter is still just reaching the traditional length for a blazer… were the jacket any shorter it would probably result in splitting of vents over his rear end
June 17, 2009 at 9:36 am
I lovvee simple cropped pants on men! :)
June 17, 2009 at 9:43 am
Oh my! He looks good with this cool jacket.I still have to visit this place!
June 17, 2009 at 9:44 am
Does have a nautical look, like how he's paired the jacket with the sneakers.
June 17, 2009 at 9:55 am
Love this picture… a bit of a picasso touch here… I personally love to watch people around me, on the street, the way they dress, the way they move, so I really enjoy your blog. You don't just take pictures of people on the street, you capture their ways, their persona and their inner self too, in your pictures (I hope I am kind of clear here, English is not my mother tongue).
June 17, 2009 at 10:02 am
The updated Popeye, the sailor man. Timeless outfit.
June 17, 2009 at 10:05 am
love the jacket and the cropped pants, they look great together – so perfectly summery
This georgeous man is too old for me, but has the same thing George Clooney has…charm. Very Sartorial photograph!
Thank you Sart!

Love the Breton top!!!!!!!!

he reminds me of picasso
June 17, 2009 at 10:44 am
which is the brand of shoes ?????
June 17, 2009 at 10:57 am
He looks so stylish
June 17, 2009 at 11:23 am
He looks so good! Love the nautical stripes and the navy blazer. The length of the pant is perfect, too..and I really like that he's wearing the chucks with no socks..although it could yield smelly feet.
June 17, 2009 at 11:28 am
reminds me of Hunter S. thompson…good confident, casual look
June 17, 2009 at 11:41 am
You sure that's not Venice? Where's the gondola?!
June 17, 2009 at 11:52 am
I don't know why, but he's all Henry Miller to me. Maybe it's because I'm in my Anais Nin phase. He's irresistible, that's for sure. I just imagine that cigarette hanging from the corner of his mouth is a ballpoint. He's cool like that.
June 17, 2009 at 11:56 am
Man stripe or man candy? I'll take the latter thank you!
June 17, 2009 at 12:13 pm
Great outfit – perfect use of colour for the summer months. Just goes to show the benefits of keeping it simple!

Love dressy blazers worn over casual clothing – for both boys and girls, actually.
June 17, 2009 at 12:18 pm
i think it needs something to lift it a little – a red neckerchief perhaps, something like that.
and when did people stop wearing socks? red socks, perhaps.
June 17, 2009 at 12:31 pm
sailor top is a perpetual hitalternate example with a girl wearing thosehttp://www.purple-diary.com/post/124735390/me-and-a-german-girl-at-le-montana-paris-photo
June 17, 2009 at 1:00 pm
I found your blog today and I must say that I simply adore your pictures.Style is everywhere!
June 17, 2009 at 1:39 pm
Aw love his short pants and great nautical theme. amazed at how un-awful it looks. Love a man who can dress.
love the fashion kiwi
June 17, 2009 at 2:10 pm
Nautical never goes out of style. Sailors are hot!
June 17, 2009 at 2:30 pm
Updated Popeye, j'adore!
June 17, 2009 at 2:34 pm
A nautical look with a hard edge. Love it.
June 17, 2009 at 3:09 pm
I love florence style
June 17, 2009 at 3:14 pm
This is awesome. I personally cannot pull off chinos, but he makes it look so good!
June 17, 2009 at 3:53 pm
I normally think that a t-shirt with a jacket ALWAYS looks awful. But I think this works, because the neck of the t-shirt is so high. I believe the rule should be that the collar of the jacket should not touch the skin –that is, the shirt should always be between the jacket and skin. But certainly I'm no expert!

June 17, 2009 at 3:58 pm
by chance will you be able to show us what's going on in London or in any of Africa's major cities?
June 17, 2009 at 3:59 pm
i can't tell if this chap is tres a la mode, or wears this stuff every year – either way, i love it. amazing look. http://fsn.typepad.com/blog/
June 17, 2009 at 4:05 pm
i love the shadow of suede that his hair is. it's so very strong when a man who has a receding hairline cuts all of his hair short rather than the cover-up. I am certain that it may be a difficult thing to see your hair leaving. as a woman it is exciting to see a man embrace the situation and run with it. i think because the choice to suede one's hair eliminates the internal conversation some might have about "does he know he's losing his hair or does he realize we can see past the comb-over?"
June 17, 2009 at 4:09 pm
what a simple, yet amazing composition. Everything flows, and looks totaly stylish without trying hard in the least. Love the brass buttons. But what's that white thing in his mouth?

I love it and I love it!!!!!!!, Nice stripes, perfect blazer , the complete look is working!!! :)
June 17, 2009 at 9:08 pm

June 18, 2009 at 12:36 am
Love how the stripes and blazer work together to create a nautical feel!

June 18, 2009 at 1:54 am
I believe the shoes are Jack Purcells.
That guy looks great!
even though I just wore something similar yesterday, I'm beginning to really get bored of just a plain striped t-shirt and a blazer , i was a tad hesitant to wear it , so i teamed it up with a cool belt. but i've been seeing it too much lately ,you must have 6 people wearing that here.
June 18, 2009 at 2:18 am
he looks great. Love the jacket.
June 18, 2009 at 4:13 am

Sharp dresser–button your damn jacket.
June 18, 2009 at 12:39 pm
Classic Sart photo.
June 18, 2009 at 1:12 pm
That look is so perfect :D
June 18, 2009 at 7:02 pm
confident. outfit works perfectly with his body type. would be so typical on most others. lovely movement in photo. thank you sir.
June 18, 2009 at 7:06 pm
This man is stunning. Perfection sans the cig.
June 18, 2009 at 8:47 pm
Good lord his testosterone has merlted my monitor!
June 18, 2009 at 9:06 pm
Those tan cotton pants are fantastic, the colour makes blues pop and they aren't the dreaded chinos. I'd love to find some for my husband – anyone advise?
June 18, 2009 at 9:16 pm
not a fan of double-breasted blazers, but this pic's making me reconsider.

you dont get to shhot aguy like this on everyday…
love the "navy style" vs the "hyper masculin (natural) look" of the guy
June 19, 2009 at 6:01 am
June 19, 2009 at 4:03 pm
Amazing, 70+ comments and no one mentioned the obvious. Gaultier has been doing this look for (literally) decades! Which is not bad thing

Russian sailor on liberty.
June 21, 2009 at 12:14 am
the two trends standing out to me this summer: sailor tops and madras.
the former is okay, as shown here, but madras I absolutely cannot take anymore of!
June 21, 2009 at 9:58 pm
So stylish without looking like he's trying too hard.
June 22, 2009 at 1:48 am
double breasted peak with gold buttons? hmmm… I would perfer this blazer to be navy.
love how he integrates the khaki in the mix.
June 22, 2009 at 7:18 am
trop beau this man !
June 23, 2009 at 5:48 am
What a man.
What a MAN!
June 25, 2009 at 4:14 pm
this is a number one….this is my friend…very cool!!!
June 26, 2009 at 5:38 am
Perfect set .. his attitude is also nice
June 26, 2009 at 8:39 am
great navy look with a touch of italian personality….
July 1, 2009 at 3:11 am
Most men I see around here aren't dressed to look good anymore. Merely walking statements! Anyone can make a statement but that doesn't necessarily make one look good. Xavier
October 16, 2009 at 2:04 am
this chap is channeling Picasso with his stripes
June 1, 2010 at 12:29 pm
Very good confidence level helps the good choices this handsome guy has made.
February 16, 2012 at 10:49 am
Wowza, Florence is doin’ it right!! Stripes are deff a style that is timeless, and knows no boarders! Thick or thin, we can’t get enough of stripes!! Be it in a top or pant, we dont CARE! we’re just stripe obsessed.
