    I love that the vest matches the purse. Perfection.

    This is wonderful–love the “inverted A” jacket shape with its set-out shoulders–and all the “V” iterations both rightside and upside down: the lapel notches, the collar, the sweater at its neck and bottom, the pulled-apart jacket skirt, etc. Palette also very nice.

    Happy too that her bag color matches that of his sweater (well, almost).

    A very nice jacket with ticket pocket and covered buttons. The red waistcoat is unexpected, yet adds interest. A marvellously well put-together look.

    I’ll state the obvious: his vest perfectly matches her bag.

    This look is so Florence to me. I love all the tweed they wear…although they sometimes go overboard on the faux-hunting (puffy) jackets.

    I can smell this man’s cologne.

    even with that composition (what happen with the lady?) it is a great picture, with the bikes and the colors, the trousers are green? nice!

    Wait a minute … SHE has taken HIS arm, and SHE is walking on the outside of the sidewalk. What is the world coming to?

    His sunglasses are kinda surprising, and he looks so good in them.

    Great jacket on him, but her purse steals the show. I do like how he’s sort of like a ladies’ man in how he is holding her.

    I love how both him and her walk as if they were both in their twenties. Her with the handbag over her arm and him with his hand in the pocket and the other arm around her.

    Oh, old couples, is there anything more lovely? Nice to see so much color on him! That’s not so common I think, at least not where I live. I like the ladys beret, and of course, his vest matching her handbag.

    some of you have asked why the lady is not more in the photo.

    I was stepping out of the Tod’s store in Florence, (notice i am at a higher level than they are – which is rare) and only had time to shoot ASAP before they had passed.

    But you are right that they are both pretty fab.

    Excalibur sharp.

    I don’t think she meant to match the bag with his vest, though. The stars just aligned.

    What is it about me that when I spot an elderly fellow who happens to be well dressed I assume his wife chooses what he wears. My struggle here is that as I do not want to become the type of woman who controls her man as far as what he wears, I also want to be partnered with a guy who looks fancy with most men featured on Satorialist. Unfortunately, most men who dress awesomely without their “female” partner influence are not into females, but males. Such a shame that we cannot “mate” with the stylish, yet rugged without doing the cliché of totally falling for the uncatchable. (if you catch my drift)

    UNLESS, of course, you live in Europe. For all you mid-West women??? Long live the “just gay-enough” men we now call “metro-sexual”.

    OK, my comment spells out: it’s about time men had their sexual revolution because stylish women need it.

    Sweat pants = I give up in life.

    Manly man who believes in his masculinity as so does all European men on this web site know that pink is a fashion statement, end. A scarf is hot not a sign of weakness, but a sense of style. Knowing how to blend stripes with peasleys is an art not a lack of judgment. How I yearn for men who know their manhood is not questioned nor diminished by their sense of style. Sart: America needs you! More than you COULD EVER imagine. Keeps on inspiring men, and young men, than being a man is (sorry the cliche) being ALL THAT YOU CAN BE, in all senses of the “expression”.

    I find it inspiring that this couple expresses such joie de vivre when many others who are much younger do not. With this couple, as with many others who dress well, it is their energy and optimism, their decision to live life large that I respond to.
