The gentleman has style. The interview/profile format is one that works well. Cheers.

His style is charming…very old hollywood.

Is this a new thing? LOVE it! My God, where do you find these people who are dripping in gorgeousness and style?
It seems as if you are always reinventing and looking for a different *angle* (as a photographer would, I suppose.)
Thanks for sharing your creativity and energy!

That’s funny he mentioned Fingers. I always tell my friends that I go there because it’s fun to see how everyone is dressed…. (the food is great by the way, Japanese Brazian fusion…)
May 13, 2008 at 10:38 pm
The fit of the jacket is what makes this outfit. And, for some reason, I love the hair

The jacket in the second photo is great and he look very elegant but juvenile. Love his style.
May 14, 2008 at 2:00 am
I think by “my humour” he means “my mood”. In Italian mood is umore…
May 14, 2008 at 2:44 am
Great.And thank you for bringing the style profile feature back to the blog!
May 14, 2008 at 2:53 am
My goodness, how handsome!

Only one thing: Rafael Medina Abascal (no Raphael Abascal Medina)isn’t the Duke of Feria, was his father who is death. Saludos!
November 22, 2012 at 2:26 pm
… so now he IS the Duke of Feria, inherited from his father the late Duke, as he is the elder son.
May 14, 2008 at 4:00 am
Look at all that blue in the first photo!
My grand father and my father says always: “The elegance is something that must be whispered and not shouted…”
It’s official. I love this man.
May 14, 2008 at 4:24 am
Second picture is quintessential Italian style: the fit of that jacket, the sleeve length and shirt cuff are pin-point accurate.
May 14, 2008 at 5:19 am
maybe he should go to london
May 14, 2008 at 6:31 am
I agree with him about Rafael Medina. He is probably the smartest man in Spain. He knows what to wear in every occasion not matter if this is formal or casual. El Aristócrata

I love reading these stylish interviews!
May 14, 2008 at 7:18 am
Absolutely love the photos – the blues even match with the background! – & it’s definitely good to know that there are still men with class around now-a-days.
May 14, 2008 at 8:05 am
My father also taught me that elegance is a whisper, I could see the look of pain in his eyes at some of the outfits I put together as a child.
Who polishes these people’s shoes, do they have servants?
May 14, 2008 at 8:24 am
I adore him! Yay for horseback riders (we have something in common) and stylish men!
I really love these interviews!
May 14, 2008 at 8:44 am
I always always love your Men from Italy shots. It’s just undeniable- they have a unique style and elegance. And I absolutely love the bit about “The elegance is something that must be whispered and not shouted…”- it’s simply precious!
May 14, 2008 at 10:35 am
Great jacket sleeve, shirt sleeve length in picture two. What shoes did he pair up with the white jeans and the black blazer?
May 14, 2008 at 10:46 am
Great job – thanks so much for re-instituting the interviews! They have been missed.
May 14, 2008 at 11:11 am
Hooray for the return of the Style Profile!
I think it should be mandatory for anyone who appears more than twice on the Sartorialist. Even if I don’t care for the look I enjoy hearing more about them.
May 14, 2008 at 12:11 pm
Well done Sart: He says street rappers are a style influence and you post two of them the same day to prove that point.
Eryl Shields, my guess is he might wear his shoes a bit rugged, a bit durty. Not a problem at all!
May 14, 2008 at 12:33 pm
This is wonderful, thanks Sart!
May 14, 2008 at 12:42 pm
Why do I think his “skimp” on t-shirts means something much more than what most people would ever buy in a t-shirt? As it should be for such a master….
May 14, 2008 at 1:02 pm
I agree…Italian men have it. I almost got whiplash the last time I was there. What style…
May 14, 2008 at 2:12 pm
I love these style profiles!
Maybe you could do one of someone a little poorer, a student perhaps?
May 14, 2008 at 2:55 pm
Please more of these interviews! So much inspiration! These man has a very realistic approach to fashion, to elegance, to life. Much like your blog. I don’t feel it’s out of my realm (like that feeling you get when you watch the Oscars). Outstanding work!
May 14, 2008 at 3:04 pm
Another fantastic profile. Thank you.
May 14, 2008 at 3:34 pm
i highly agree with him about socks being underrated.
May 14, 2008 at 3:52 pm
What color shoes did he wear? And is he wearing white Levi 501′s?
May 14, 2008 at 4:36 pm
What a wonderful addition to the blog this is!
Style Profile..,Sart having a Q&A with the ones he admires!
This gentleman has a wonderful elegant style and an elegant manner…a rare combination now days!
I am loving the blog as you all might have noticed!
May 14, 2008 at 4:37 pm
Two very well constructed outfits. He knows what he’s doing.
May 14, 2008 at 4:56 pm
I want to know everything about him! He’s so brilliant!
May 14, 2008 at 4:59 pm
Speaking about Rafael Medina..he is really elegant…but he needs to meet Dario to discover Cesare Attolini’s style!
May 14, 2008 at 5:01 pm
I agree with Dario…Jeremy Irons is the perfect man of TODAY!
Dario you are simply the best!
May 14, 2008 at 5:50 pm
Bravo ! This is the real deal. Attolini, the best in my opinion. Neapolitan perfection. I still have a great cashmere jacket from 10 yrs. This guy is style. Personally and outwardly. The guy walking the cobblestones is way more impressive than those on the runway. To me. The jacket shape on # 2 is right where I like to be. Dominico Vacca style a little. Thank you for this completely. A true Sartorialist, Style with humor. SHHHHH……
May 14, 2008 at 10:59 pm
love his grandfathers/fathers quote and the pics!
May 14, 2008 at 11:58 pm
These are great. You have to do more of them.
May 15, 2008 at 2:16 am
For me, Fred Astaire will always be a timeless style icon.Anyway, very interesting read. I feel overwhelmed by your vast experience and knowledge.
May 15, 2008 at 4:51 am
very nice these interviews but gosh is this man old fashioned.. all about the right DNA , old money, a bit old fashioned n’est pas ??
Style doesnt come with birth but with intelligence and curiosity and of course exercise and emotion, attitude and creativity, which is available for anyone open for experiences.
May 15, 2008 at 6:02 am
I do like a lot this kind of mini style interview they are so informative !!!
May 15, 2008 at 6:30 am
To anonymous below. Precisely because the father of Rafael Medina died, he is now the Duke of Feria. Titles tend to be inherited, that’s the thing about them.
May 15, 2008 at 8:07 am
the fit of his jacket in the second photo is perfect. i love the striped scarf against his srtiped shirt. i tend to love old-world elegance and glamour so even if he seems a bit old fashioned to some it works for me. i want to be him when i grow up.
oh and ps Anonymous veronique @12:11 PM – if you check the comments you’ll find that the twins aren’t street rappers at all. just fyi ;-)
May 15, 2008 at 8:14 am
Please tell me he isn’t gay :)
May 15, 2008 at 8:15 am
Yep titles tend to be inherited, actually very weird if you think about it because a title you get or got because you did something important more or less : ) so why should it be a heritage.. the son or daughter is not always as the father or mother , which is the same with style.. Mr Agnelli had style and a great attitude in his time but i do not know if this is the same case with his grandson.. at least he is experimenting with fashion , design and substance : )
May 19, 2008 at 5:22 am
Oh God! I knew Dario was special…Mario Talarico in Naples is a fantastic experience!
May 31, 2008 at 7:47 pm
He is handsome. I love the way he pulls off the outfit.
June 1, 2008 at 4:21 am
This guy is one of my fashion role models. No doubt about it, the Italians dress the best.
June 14, 2010 at 11:03 am
LOVE how there are matching blue car and blue uh shades? i should consider buying a blue car when i grow up
September 23, 2015 at 6:16 am
These are great.
