It’s also lovely to see a handsome older fella after all the youth of stockholm … although, I suppose, he is youthful in his own way.

is he Elio Fiorucci?
May 23, 2007 at 9:07 am
He reminds me of Hemingway. What a very handsome man; I bet he smells delicious. Loving your work recently Sart, keep it up.
May 23, 2007 at 9:13 am
Casual but refined! Classic.
May 23, 2007 at 9:46 am
Nice. You’re helping to build a new legion of tasteful yet practical bicycle commuters.
Oh, and thanks for bringing the labels back.

Finally am man shows me a reason to roll up his jacket sleeves. I have a few jackets with working button holes and love to undo one or two for a little flair, but I have always wanted to roll them all the way up. I’m going for a bike ride this afternoon.

Your photos always cheer me up.

i live in Brera, in Milan and it’s amazing to observe how many old men can teach what is simple elegance with their clothes…i love living in this area, it’s full of art students and old stylish artists…it reminds me of paris sometimes.

I really like the puffed up pocket square and exposed cuffs with this look.
May 23, 2007 at 12:11 pm
WOW! How does one age with such dignity and elegance? The colours complement his skin and the brown shoes offset the outfit wonderfully! So much charisma! Fabulous find and a wonderful shot Scott!
May 23, 2007 at 2:07 pm
How is he balancing?
May 23, 2007 at 2:40 pm
When do you go to Japan, Sarto? I would love to see your interpretation of Tokyo..
May 23, 2007 at 3:23 pm
He looks friggin’ great. I love it all – he’s all pulled together, but a little rumpled. The hair is fab too.
May 23, 2007 at 4:59 pm
i like the sock, trouser cuff, shoe combo.
May 23, 2007 at 6:12 pm
Definitely interesting! I like his outfit, all goes well together, incl. the bike!
May 23, 2007 at 6:33 pm
We’re men, MANLY men, we’re men on bikes! ;)He looks magnificent!
May 23, 2007 at 6:59 pm
if you’d like to see men on bikes visit the bay area, namely ucberkeley. not only will you see your everyday college student on a bike, but a professor as well!
May 23, 2007 at 7:34 pm
GREAT SHOT! Love it! He looks just like a teacher I used to have.
May 23, 2007 at 8:19 pm
he is so handsome, i LOVE him! everything is perfect
May 23, 2007 at 9:06 pm
This HAS to be one of your great shots. He is the epitome of elegance (can I use that word for guys?)! He reminds me of Anthony Hopkins.

In the middle of writing a 20 page final paper…
I love this.
Anyhow, thank you for all that you do.

I love his bike. Does anyone know what brand?
May 24, 2007 at 8:36 am
working bicycle-bags, lookink very natural, real, nice shotall best
May 24, 2007 at 9:08 am
I have to be honest Sart, while this is a nice shot, it is getting old. The whole men on bikes thing was quite fun in the begining, but now its getting quite repetitive.
May 24, 2007 at 9:32 am
For Anon 9:08amI didn’t shoot him because he was on a bike but because he is so stylish – he just happened to be on a bike
Just for you, I will try to shoot more stylish guys on mules!!
May 24, 2007 at 9:36 am
Excellent ! Is that Donald Sutherland ?

May 24, 2007 at 9:38 am
Ah the italians… the only people who love linen for what it is, I mean for living with you and your body, and do not say “it’s a pity it crumples” !
May 24, 2007 at 10:20 am
there is nothing about this photo that doesn’t make me feel good.
May 24, 2007 at 11:30 am
I could only dream to look that suave when I get older! Tip of the hat to that chap.
May 24, 2007 at 11:42 am
Very nicely put together.

oy vey. Can you not take an OUNCE of critique? I am shocked you even posted my comment, since it did not explicitly thank g-d for bringing you to this world. To me, the constant bike shots take away from the actual style, all you see is wheels and a basket.
May 24, 2007 at 12:08 pm
I was joking with you!
May 24, 2007 at 12:51 pm
More bikes!!! More bikes!!! I love those shots Sart.
May 24, 2007 at 1:12 pm
This is a fabulous photo. Such a handsome man! His style conjures up thoughts of an approachable Sean Connery.
Dwight S. Huggins =^..^=
May 24, 2007 at 2:15 pm
love the look, shades of donald sutherland only add to the effect. charming…
May 25, 2007 at 3:33 am
Wow — what a fantastic shot on those haphazard Brera cobblestones!
May 25, 2007 at 4:58 am
Candid Cool, love you for that comment!!

May 26, 2007 at 9:04 am
Forget the people… more bikes! Bikes as models! YES YES! ;)

Very nice photo! Very elegant. Is this gentleman’s left forearm tattooed, or just tan?
July 28, 2008 at 6:49 am
Is it possible to buy prints of this (or other select) image(s)? Please let me know.
September 7, 2008 at 3:52 pm
Yes– I’d swear it’s Donald Sutherland!
–One Canadian grateful for Sart
May 3, 2009 at 9:12 pm
Isn’t Hemingway dead? Did he had a twin?
May 17, 2009 at 2:33 pm
this is an amazing look.
i love the bike, the saddle bags and the lack of break wiring.
the pedal break is a understatement when trying to achieve clean lines.
June 5, 2009 at 12:05 am
Hey, I know him! He is Mr. Fercioni, the most famous tattooer in Italy! He is also a scenographer, with a peculiar baroque taste. I proudly have a tatto made by him. His studio is very close to the place where the picture was taken.
August 9, 2009 at 5:28 pm
Such a dream!
September 9, 2009 at 4:08 am
He is GianMaurizio Fercioni, the most famous and older tattooist in Italy. He have a great and very personal style!
December 17, 2009 at 4:05 pm
This is my favorite photo for so many reasons.Including the wrought iron in background, the well worn (& worn well) linen jacket, and the shoes on his feet, his shoes are perfect & polished!Thanks!
April 9, 2010 at 6:15 pm
Great! All in it smells as spring.
March 27, 2011 at 7:39 am
He's the best tattoo artist we have in Milan (and perhaps in Italy) and, of course, he's really stylish. P.S. he dresses up like this even while he works. He's one of a kind.S.
April 2, 2011 at 8:58 pm
Again, the shoes here set the outfit apart!
June 14, 2011 at 9:22 am
Mr Fercioni: THE ultimate Italian dandy and the best tattoo artist in Italy. Glad he made it onto your pages.
August 16, 2011 at 6:52 am
This is how I wana roll at that age. Excelent!
June 10, 2012 at 1:54 am
Mmmmmmm. Men and women on bicycles. There can never be enough! (:
