Don’t you just love the longer cut coat? And look at the spring colors in the tie and vest. Handsome.

Wonderful posture, and great photograph! I hope this young man sees your picture and has the chance to save it somewhere! I like the outfit, very classic. Even though I usually like the lapel edges of the jacket to echo the incline of the overcoat, I quite like this in contrasting colors- having a navy/black overcoat makes much more sense than a camel color one.

This man is total perfection. I love the sunflower yellow contrast with the two blues!

Brilliant! handsome and elegantly dressed. Turned out with a sense of personal style. This is what I always check in here for.
impeccable! this is what being a man is all about… so classic and bold, yet freshly spring. i implore you sir open up your coat!

This man looks so put together-very dapper!

He looks so well-dressed and as Jorge from WPB notes, his excellent posture enhances his clothes. I’m loving the Italian pants narrow cut with a deep cuff. I think the only place you can learn to shine shoes as well as his is Military Academy. I could fall in love with a man who wears beautiful shoes like that…

it’s all kinda sorta perfect. love it.
the fit of the coat … so elegant … almost artistic!?
the shoes are brilliant.

Wonderful, good proportions, balance of colour and clean lines. A very elegant gentleman indeed.

italian classic chic.He is looking as a Duke.

Wow. Great example of classic menswear. I love the following:
- Antiquing on toe area of shoes- Contrasting (horn?) buttons on DB coat- Spot of linen from under coat sleeve- Roll of lapel on (linen?) vest- Impeccable fit
Details worth adopting.
February 12, 2009 at 10:10 am
Oooh, this is divine. YUM!! The posture, the color, the elegance. Very very nice.
February 12, 2009 at 10:47 am
Just a thought – would not black shoes have been an even better choice?

I just saw Gosford Park again and there’s something about this that brings that movie to mind –a kind of retro, well-heeled elegance.

Other comments have touched on all the details here, I can only agree and say that the looks perfect in every way. Wonderfully done.
February 12, 2009 at 11:17 am
Perfect everything- cut, styling, colouring. Very Italian!
February 12, 2009 at 11:22 am
What’s not to love?
This shot and this man are so wonderful I can smell it. I can smell the trees behind him and the wet asphalt and the damp in the air, and 5 steps closer to this man and I can smell a bar of (really, really wonderful) soap and espresso.
Just how do you manage it, Scott? It only looks like a photo on my computer monitor, but it is really time travel… can’t get enough!
I am going to listen to Italian opera the rest of the day.
February 12, 2009 at 11:23 am
… and these are shoes worth including…
February 12, 2009 at 11:26 am
Let me just wipe the drool from my chin…what a gorgeous guy, from head to toe.
February 12, 2009 at 11:41 am
black shoes would have ruined it, brown was the right choice.

I love it when a man can wear a splash of yellow. It gives his look a dimension and depth that the the light blue on its own could not have achieved. The cut of the coat, as well, works well his figure. Stunning, really.
It is indeed wonderfully done, he has an amazing coat and his shoes are perfect. He looks like (style)royalty for some reason.

I second Dan- very well done but not overdone

yay, burgundy shoes!
February 12, 2009 at 12:06 pm
Yup, indeed simply flawless outfit. Even the men in the backgound seem quite dandy as well, but our dbreasted coat wearer here is unmatched. Men in shots like these are such inspiration to me..yet again,kudos sart! Another great one
February 12, 2009 at 12:15 pm
Very good looking man.I like the coat, but it would be too cold for the winter!
February 12, 2009 at 12:49 pm
he is handsome, love his look

Nothing actually matches, and yet it doesn’t matter.
A peek of summer coming up (chest and neck) from winter. Charming.
A little bit of colour in a cloudy day!

I love the long coay. It’s so rare to see a man pull this sort of thing off without looking sketchy or sloppy. He seems very confident but not conceited. And! His shoes have such a classy gloss.
February 12, 2009 at 1:30 pm
Fabulous! Absolutely fabulous. I especially like the touch of yellow (I think) from the vest.
February 12, 2009 at 1:38 pm
His pants are PERFECT! The length, the narrowness, the cuffs.
February 12, 2009 at 2:55 pm
Very proper, but he looks friendly – I guess that’s where the hint of yellow comes in.
February 12, 2009 at 3:30 pm
He looks amazing. So pulled together, well groomed, and I love all the little details on this outfit: the peek of yellow the blue patterned tie, those antiqued shoes.
February 12, 2009 at 3:32 pm
I just picked up a slim Chesterfield coat that fits like this one…heavenly to wear as well as to look at. This guy looks good, and fit.
February 12, 2009 at 4:15 pm
Very well!! I know this man. I met him in a Sartoria in Verona. I am happy to notice that his style is appreciate from this blog, this notice that my smell is still good… “Tommaso have a good sense of naso”! Ha!Ha!
February 12, 2009 at 4:32 pm
He could look slightly pretentious in such a grand coat, but the cheerful flashes of colour really put his own edge into this.Lovely colour combinations, the whole outfit is great.

What an incredibly stylish gentleman, but doesn’t look like he’s tried too hard, with a touch of warmth/humour (with the touch of yellow), so we know he doesn’t take himself too seriously (but serious enough to polish his shoes so beautifully).
February 12, 2009 at 5:46 pm
O.K., we get it. Europe is the home of all people chic and stylish and fashionable, blah, blah, blah. Now please come back to New York!

Dear Anonymous (above): I must admit, though I am all for Greek Lovers, they only make them stylish in Italy. xoxoxo
February 12, 2009 at 7:25 pm
I am head over heels with this photo. He is amazing; every detail has been considered.
The shoe color is perfect and better than black. I’m a woman and I have recently added two booties to my shoe collection in this color: patent Reiss stiletto ankle booties and antiqued platform Max Studio oxfords. The stilettos even look great with black tights. That tiny bit of color makes a huge difference.
This man *really* knows how to use color to accent classic neutrals.

WOW! He looks so sharp. Even with the checkered tie and yellow waistcoat, he still looks sharp! :D

Needs black shoes. Other than that, perfect.

If the personality matches the look, this is the man I was born to marry.
He reeks of power and benevolence…
February 15, 2009 at 10:23 pm
I use to wear a similar double-breasted top coat, in gray. It is an elegant look. However, in cold winter weather, the fact that the top “functional” button is only at stomach level is a problem. I wore mine with two scarves for adequate weather protection. Today I wear a more practical single-breasted top coat.

The peek of yellow has me dying to know what’s underneath!
