    Regarding "not moving" and "standing still" comments, google: "shutter speed". I don't understand the comments regarding bikes in Europe, unless they have never been there or never read. People commute to work on them, thousands of people, more bikes parked at a train station than cars esp. in Netherlands, France. Paris has public bike-for-rent, whereby you take one, drop it off at a stand at your destination. Commercial deliveries all by bike.Gasoline about $5 to $6 a gallon, Taxis are insanely expensive, Bikers in suits, dresses, even in the rain. Getting more common now in NY but really dangerous ( I have had 2 friends killed, by Taxis, of course).BEAUTIFUL SHOES, SUIT,fit, color and fabric

    Why don't you have the same type of biking mentality/lifestyle in US as we do in Europe? I never quite understood that. I'm from Finland but am living in Canada now, and even here, I don't see the same biking style as in Europe. I bike here with a skirt and high heels on and sure get a lot of stares from people in the cars and otherwise – I guess because I'm not wearing a Nike outfit and runners. And I'm NOT wearing a helmet, ever. My hair, after all.

    May I suggest a visit to Amsterdam in your future? Living there some years ago was the best year of my life. The Dutch cycle everywhere, bikes being the primary form of transportation. Additionally, they're basically a tall people, so imagine everyone being 'long and lean' as well as fair and well dressed. Basically they're stunning! And then there is the cheese and chocolate!

And I say that with nothing but admiration as he works his classic Euro-suave look to perfection X

    It's the same as walking, you polish them when you need to. Though I find walking much harder on my shoes than cycling.

    "But after thinking about it, I very much doubt he was in much danger of breaking a sweat as this fellow seems more concerned with posing than commuting."

    You don't actually have to ride at breakneck speed. So you don't actually have to break a sweat. I ride slowly in summer and wear light dresses – no sweat, just a lovely self-made breeze.

    In some part of Italy is common to use bikes to commute to work and to attend other business (shopping, etc.), expecially in northern Italy where there are many cities (like Milan) which are flat and easy to cycle around. I was raised in one of this small cities and we all go around with bikes, even my parents who are in their seventies. Normally if you bike around the city with such a formal dress means you live in the city centre not too far from where you work (or maybe you go to work by car and than you have a bike to stroll around the city). But if a street in Milan is so empty like it's in this pic it can only be taken on sunday.

  107. Liz S

    August 12, 2010 at 9:28 am

    Beautiful suit, particularly beautiful shoes…..although traditional. I am hoping for more photos of young and vibrantly creative dressers soon Sart! I mean particularly teenagers–so many of the ones I see around are inspiringly confident, articulate and thoughtfully creative in their dress sense. I am sure this must also be the case in other parts of the world. I wish I'd had all those qualities many decades ago.

    I also agree with anonymous' comment re the people in Amsterdam. Too true–they are an inherently beautiful tall race–but bicycling certainly must help their leanness.

    Bicycling is only really taking off in Sydney recently. Proposals of building bike tracks is met with passion for and against so it's difficult to establish this culture–the city was never planned with bikes in mind. This is part of the problem.
    Another part is we have a love affair with the convenience of the car and many have to travel long distances to work. It's not uncommon for travel to be around 1-2 hours to and from work with public transport or the car.
    Attempting to bike most places is taking your life in your hands and breathing the heavy traffic fumes is also not that great for your lungs which perpetually puts most off even trying.
    BTW–helmets are compulsory here.

    But thinking more about the idea of biking to work. I do it, but with a helmet on. There are too many angry car drivers in the U.S.

    Also, the bikes here in the U.S. tend not to be city bikes and don't have the chain guard seen in this photo. That makes for greasy pants and is the reason I usually wear jeans when biking to work. Wonder if I can fit a chain guard onto my mountain bike …

    I'm just thrilled to see oxfords and socks. In my opinion, if you want to wear a suit and still reflect the summer season, wear a navy suit like this one. No need to dandy it up.

    Lol, this pic doesn't really help your case that you're not obsessed with people on bikes. That said, the subtle shine and wonderful tailoring of the suit just made this picture for me. And yes, it is nice to see clothes in motion isn't it? And what better opportunity to see it than on a bicycle?

    Very nice. Bicycling parallell to streetcar tracks however can be a bit risky, as if one doesn't take care, the front tire can get stuck. The rider then usually keeps on moving forward over the handlebars… Would it be possible to design with a helmet that could fit like a cap, or under a hat or a scarf, and be based on the technique used for airbags in cars?

    this is a great photo. But I would love to see you post shots of bicyclists wearing helmets. There is a notion that a helmet ruins the fashion forward look of riding a bike (I myself dont always enjoy wearing a helmet). But I think its always cooler to value and protect your brain, and I think that there is an inherent cool attributed to people who dont give a damn how ridiculous a helmet makes them look. And besides I am sure you could find someone who makes a helmet look good. I could use the inspiration.

    I like the cloth splash guard over the tires, necessary for such attire.

    Never seen anything like that for sale anywhere, probably because in the US anyone who cycles does so dressed like an alien.

    i am a massive fan of the use of bikes full stop. if we were to see more of this: confident, professional people using bikes as a vital means of transport, if it were to become a fad per se i think it could end up making a massive impact on our lives as real people and the effects leading from that are multitudinous, real and good. lets hope this catches on!

    Here I am scrolling down the posts I missed out on while I was on vacation and I find this photo of my friend P! A man who loves his jeans and Birkenstocks. And for all you ladies out there, is 'unfotunately' married (to a good friend) and has two adorable kids. But it is a great photo! As always…

    Just to clarify, biking is definetively hard to do here in Milan…it is a city designed around cars and bikers have a hard life (they risk it every day). You can see it in the photo as well…those tramways are really dangerous for a biker. Unlike many other european cities, Milano practically does not have dedicated bycicle paths so a biker must go on the same track of cars, motorbikes, etc.); the existing dedicated bycicle paths are often damaged or illegally used as parking by car and motobike owners. Looking the photo of that biker in Milan is like looking to the photo of a wild Panda in the jungle…just rare.
