    I’ve seen all these faces so often on your blog. Lovely to see them together like this, with candid shots. Beautiful slideshow.

    Weirdly and uncharacteristically I’m really liking all the male jewellery and piled up bracelets, maybe because it’s in black and white? or because they just look so damn cool, everything works on them?

    These italian men exude style, elegance and sexiness (although I don’t really dislike the word, used ad nauseum) but in this case, there is a nonchalance, an attention to detail, jewelry galore but in a very masculine way. The man in the 3rd photo is beautiful.

    Great shot, but unless you gents are at TGIF or Chili’s this is not an Appeteaser. And clearly, you are at the Olive Garden.

    This picture left me thinking about the man:

    He seems in peace with the man he became

    He looks like time doesn’t have any place in his life, unless you take in consideration the marked features on his face.

    And he looks genuinely happy about life.

    I just love when a picture has the power to make me stop my world and live in the now, right there, where you were ;)

    Lx Hugs

    Looks like the end of the scrappy masculine bracelet era is upon us.

    This series demonstrates what a caricature maker the bracelet is.

    It is a challenge to those of us who try to look far a head, the chain of destiny is too long and can only be gasped one at a link. The man in the pictures lives in the present and l love his swag and the pictures came out quit well ant they are very natural l love them.

    all very stylish and dapper – but what always cracks me up is the current trend to look rugged & rough in a higly refined urban environment. lots of unkempt beards, too – very stylish gentleman farmers with a manicure.

    Lovely shots, black and white has such an effect, timeless … fashion transpires through the photos. Who is this man? I see him often in your photos.

    I will be moving to Florence soon, I hope I attract your attention one day and manage to be on your site.

    Great collection of photos. You must have been delighted to have so many options from which to take your photos. I love the man in the first photo. The lines on his face are amazing. You can imagine him when he’s not smiling and there are no lines, suddenly he laughs and his face turns into a sculpture.

      Were that lovely gentleman to grace my table, his sense of self and style would, in my eyes, trump formalities. The hat wouldn’t bother me at all.

    The black and white is great, but would LOVE to see the colors these guys were wearing. Any chance of running a few pics in color? Would enjoy a kind of look book approach and seeing everybody head to toe, tho I suppose not feasible… sigh… wish I had been there. Gosh, have no idea what I would have worn to feel in their league, tho.
