    I love his outfit. Very chic and Milanese. And, by the way: I have exactly the same bag! I bought it in London two years ago next to Covent Garden.

    For some reason he reminds me of Arlo Guthrie in Alice’s Restaurant.

    love the scarf. does he look like he’s trying too hard? or his smile just one of pride and thus dissuading me from loving him altogether?

    also, i would like his satchel. thank you.

    He is adorable and I love his effortless combination of colors. But his hat reminds me of the cartoon character from the 1930s, “koko the clown”!

    I love the pea coat. Really a beautiful color. The look as a whole appears a bit too busy with the hat and the scarf and the hair and the collar, but nevertheless interesting.

    Oh my God! Can’t relieve it!!! I’m so so so happy!!! I lived last year for five months in Milano (which I looooooooved) and that’s the corner of my house!!!! In Via Alserio!! (That yellow building with balconies at the left hand of the picture…)
    About the blog, I really like it, and now even more! But it would be good if you could travel a little more to different countries. For example, I’m from Argentina, and I’m sure you could find really good shots here…

    Oh, by the way, in that zone there are some cool shops (I’m not referring to Corso Como, which of course is famous)Actually, don’t remember exactly where, but near Viale Zara there’s a vintige shop which is absolutely amazing!

    now this guy has a nice fitting pair of pants…not too tight and more comfy for sure.

    I like his bag as well. I am wondering who made it?

    Fun! I adore that kind of hat over that curly hair: it reminds me to Chico Marx.

    He reminds me of an elf.
    His expression, the lovely hat and his stance just screams “I’m an elf” or “Yay! I’m a Real Boy” as someone pointed out earlier.

    i like his look, the pants fit perfectly. however…the nit-picky side of me wants to button the rest of his buttons!

    He clearly has a sense of humor about his style, but the hat also keeps his round head from looking like a pumpkin atop his very slim outfit.

    i like that the top button is the only one buttoned

    it makes the jacket look like it’s floating away his body… sorta like a dress!

    That is a nice dotted scarf and striped hat.

    Standard Issue becomes interesting style:

    Here and at Scott’s men.style.com blog we’re seeing a lot of “single buttoners”, choosing either the top or bottom to close in an unusual way – why? Maybe because the coats themselves are “classics” (OK, some would say recycled dinosaurs). An iconoclastic buttoning is not quite “high personal expression”; so maybe it signals the challenge of looking like an individual without going over the edge to costume-y self-consciousness.

    Again, questo uomo takes what may be an unexception if good quality dotted or foulard scarf and ruches it up above the coat collar to do something unexpected.

    Maybe his budget means shop at H&M, but in his heart it’s one-of-a-kind.

    Love the outfit and semi-buttoning of jacket, but would probably shorten the trouser length by hemming or rolling
