This man would stop me dead in my tracks. He’s got the mysterius stanger thing all wrapped up. Delish!
February 21, 2007 at 8:17 pm
What a lovely blue (periwinkle?)!
February 21, 2007 at 8:41 pm
No suprise that that guy’s at the Cavalli show, since he completely embodies gangster style. Awesome

Secret…Aaygent Man! Very cute.

A+ for the hat, coat and shades ensemble. Less enthusiastic about the jacket fit and way-too-long pants….
February 21, 2007 at 11:21 pm
Spiffy! Et un peu mysterieux.

perfect high 2 button. thank god for the break in the pants. and no these are not lug soles. but a thought i’d like to add: i miss the inspired beauty of everyday new york street scenes in this blog. i miss the first year.

This guy is sweet. I’m embarassingly jealous. Is there a such genre as ‘style’ noir?
February 22, 2007 at 1:51 am
His pant is just a little bit too long … It scratches on the foot … arghhh we can’t be perfect !!! I prefer Via Verry Boy Look ! Or the Old Man at Feretti ! just perfect with feet in the air !!!

detective charm indeed..
perhaps either the suit jacket button undone(looks a wee bit tightish)…or the coat buttons done up…
ah, hats! I doth love ‘em
February 22, 2007 at 3:01 am
It’s a look quite interesting for a man of medium age…it’s sounds to me to Anthony Hopkings in Hannibal…sublime….

Ok, OKAY, STYLE is complete in Milan, but where has the adventuresome street-I’m-not-in-a-box-style at?
February 22, 2007 at 7:58 am
dear sir, I really miss your snaps in n.y.; i must say that those photos were very-very much inspiring since you have a such good eye and delicated good taste. As far I am concerne, N.Y.is the most stylished city in the world, next to London; Paris is too perfect, I must say; Milan is too burgeois and Madrid it´s not at all sophisticated, but authentical and really, really, fun. And Berlin? what about Berlin? don’t forget it; you could get amazing looks over there.

I wish more guys wore narrow-legged trousers–with suits, and in all situations. I think the wide-leg trouser looks dated, and that’s part of why this man looks so sharp and fresh to me. The hat is key, but the narrow silhouette really does most of the work.

Italianissimo! A classic look that could have been worn by Cary Grant. The three-button jacket (can just see the button-hole below the roll of the jacket collar) is correctly fastened on the centre button only, and the shirt is a beautiful shade of blue. Are the shoes a very dark brown or is my browser playing up?
Dare I hope for a return of hats for men?

i love the light blue! i don’t know why, but lately seeing that pale blue is really refreshing and crisp, like on that woman’s gloves in a previous entry. it’s inspiring me to looking for clothes whose colors i’m passionate about, and wearing them in a subtle and crisp way.
February 22, 2007 at 8:53 am
Now THAT is style.
February 22, 2007 at 9:44 am
Interesting and yet great look!
February 22, 2007 at 10:02 am
I didn’t know Jack Abramoff was a Cavalli fan.
February 22, 2007 at 10:06 am
That is a fantastic color for a shirt.
February 22, 2007 at 12:39 pm
I’m not the pants length expert, but the fit of the jacket is distracting.
Your candid-style pictures bring home the point that item of clothing that needs to be adjusted or tugged to look right should be left on the rack at the store!
February 22, 2007 at 2:39 pm
Yeah, he definitely looks like a bad ass.
February 22, 2007 at 2:43 pm
The gentleman is well put together; however, the puddling of his trousers and those of “Old Guy” from the other day have me worried. The Italians have historically done such a good job of wearing their trousers so that the cuffs/hems just graze their shoe tops, thus enhancing the line of the trousers and displaying their beautiful brown shoes. Is this new droopy look an American influence? And when did Americans decide that using their pants bottoms to sweep the sidewalks is a good idea? There’s even a popular song (at least it was popular in the 40s and again in the 60s) castigating Sam the tailor for making the pants too long.
February 22, 2007 at 3:06 pm
whooo! thaught it was a gun there for amoment, in his right hand! could have easily fitted with the rest of his look! good looking guy!
February 22, 2007 at 3:23 pm
kind of looks like you, n’est-ce pas?
February 22, 2007 at 3:53 pm
Most men’s clothes are the most boring thing in the world. Most looks–like this one–have been around for over 50 years.
positively the same dame
February 22, 2007 at 4:48 pm
now him, i dig. witty men who are willing to play around with the boring old suit and the boring old way it fits. unlike the gentleman in the previous post, for me this is off-kilter style that works.
Just an Observation

Man! …some people really know how to pull off a hat…I have tell you.I’m sorry but hats are bit “costumey” in our contemporary day and age and anyone that can pull if off as good style ” hats off to them”
February 23, 2007 at 5:48 am
he looks like he’s off to a fancy-dress party, which makes him look ridiculous
February 23, 2007 at 1:51 pm
Has he just stepped out of an Antonioni movie? I think he may be channelling the great, the wonderful, Marcello Mastroianni, don’t you?

Great look for the outrageous middle-aged man. Although, eyeglasses could be a little wider…
