There's nothing better than great old man style. Wonderful portrait.

Beppe is aware of his charm!Go Beppe, and teach to all those trivial men!
August 26, 2010 at 10:41 am
Why, isn't he dapper?!
Ah well, I like the tie and the use of the pin, but not sure about the lapels on that jacket.
I love seeing gentlemen that stay dapper and classic into old age.

True essence of the phrase "distinguished gentleman".

Got a lil emotional there seeing this picture. Fashion has got NO age limit !!!

WWBD! He's perfect!

The difference between fashion and style is that fashion is a trend that eventually dies out, style lasts forever, and this picture is the proof!

one of our old favorites….with his signature safety pin as a tie clip detail ….as always great personal style. THXSAR!

You can never over-enthuse the power of a sharp suit. Imagine Beppe in some saggy old cords and thermofleece jumper… not so lovely. But in this slick attire he is a silver fox if ever there was one. X

I agree. Men, take note!

Why do italien men favour blue soooo much?
August 26, 2010 at 12:21 pm
Stylish old man. Too bad his tie is a little ruffled up, culd use some fixing lol!
August 26, 2010 at 12:24 pm
Q.BELLO! That's a suit! Nailhead pattern? tie that is fantastic. The continuing blue period of Sart. is causing me to intensify my search for a blue pin/chalk stripe suit. Wish we could see the whole suit/shoes. Miraviglioso.

Beppe means ´grandma´ in Frisian (language spoken in the north of Holland). Funny :)

Beautiful dressing. Appears to be effortless… As natural and comfortable as a second skin. Love the bumped out tie.

I do not think his tie is just ruffled up. I think he fixed it that way to let the plain matching color part emerge from under the pattern.
August 26, 2010 at 1:57 pm
Yeah, great idea, as John Wesley said, a blog only featuring stylish men, I would love it!
August 26, 2010 at 1:58 pm
gotta love a well put together outfit!
August 26, 2010 at 2:03 pm
No matter the age the Italians make it look effortless. So classic without forcing anything. Its remarkable that their attire is the same attire a 25 year old gentlemen would be wearing. A suit with beautiful material and exquisite tailoring along with a touch of independent style. Simply beautiful.

haha I absolutely agree – ASK BEPPE! :)
August 26, 2010 at 2:33 pm
i can't believe i never thought to crease the tie with a pin to rise like that. that's genius. or perhaps i haven't noticed it done before. now that's attention to detail that he created. is that a safety pin? if so, that's pretty awesome and dare i say, a bit of punk rock aesthetic
August 26, 2010 at 3:09 pm
Impeccable. The pop of red in the pocket energizes the palette. He's a force.
August 26, 2010 at 3:44 pm
Well Beppe nailed it !

It is a safety pin(?!) he has on?if yes,well done Zio Beppe!
August 26, 2010 at 4:03 pm
I hadn't noticed the safety pin, but I think it's genius. The suit is impeccable, maybe that's what makes it great. I love a blue shirt.

Great suit, great accessories, great tie, the works. Beppe is always dressed perfectly. Hope he is wearing Tropical weight here, its still so very hot in Italy! I love the rich color blue of his shirt. Lovely! The Italians have a "I don't give a d – - n whether it's cooled down or not, I'm dressing for Fall". Love this attitude.
August 26, 2010 at 7:18 pm
Elegance has no age but he looks like a man whose profession has defined his style,let me guess would he be a banker?
The Grand Master of style!
August 26, 2010 at 7:21 pm
Beppe is trim and elegant.He wears his years with style and grace.And yes please,write a book on style for men and I will personally sell it where I live.Help is needed here.
August 26, 2010 at 7:44 pm
There is something very beguiling about a well dressed older gentlemen.
August 26, 2010 at 8:11 pm
Fabulous portrait! I imagine he'd dress impeccably on a Sunday morning. He's got a look of Alan Arkin, don't you think?
August 26, 2010 at 10:28 pm
Beppe, you're the man.
August 26, 2010 at 11:02 pm
Classy,charming and flawless…
August 27, 2010 at 2:00 am
So many clothing choices look good but don't make me pause. A man who dresses like so immaculately and then adds a safety pin – that intrigues me and makes me want to know more about who he is. Especially with a stare like that. May men like Beppe be around in a few years when I need them.
August 27, 2010 at 3:16 am
Oh please, Scott, do a men's style guide!!!
August 27, 2010 at 3:19 am
love the tiiiieee, so well put together!
August 27, 2010 at 4:36 am
Very distinguished, charismatic, style !!!!!!!
August 27, 2010 at 5:19 am
Nice photo and great yet subtle style. Love how the tie vorresponds to the freckled shiny head.But what's going on with the shoulders? Is the seam rolled back or something? Unusual cut.
August 27, 2010 at 6:16 am
Here is an alternative to sprezzatura: elegance.
August 27, 2010 at 6:59 am
Bravo Beppe! You look great! This man is elegante and understated. Remember the some days ago post with the guy in Florence wiht a gold Rolex, two Gold rings and a Vertu mobile phone? That guy should look at this gentleman and learn something about being elegant and don't be flashy.

Beppe is a true man of style and gentility, with impeccible manners. I truly enjoyed working with him at Tiffany & Co. His trademark red socks are a fantastic symbol of his verve against the grain.

Stunning! Why is it that mean manage to age so much better than women! It is so UNFAIR!

September 2, 2010 at 3:24 am
is it a safety pin or an antique tie pin? Don't they wreck the silk? Still it would be worth it as it gives the tie some (as you would say) "sprezzatura"! Why are we so afraid of ties these days? I predict a big come-back.

Not forgetting or allowing those in control to disregard the source in which they gained their money or their power for the power is the people, not just one man. We have to have strength to do what is ahead of us; power comes from many and power can be exposed â€Žand seized by those who allowed it to be in the hands of those in that position. We forgetwho it is that has the power. Lets us our power to rightfully regain that which has nearly been stripped from our grasp.
