I’m not loving the socks…it’s just a bit too much. LOVE the gingham shirt and gold tie, and those shoes are great!

Impeccable taste…and a sense of humor! Love the raspberry touch in the socks…so unexpected and wonderful. The golden yellow tie and blue checks work beautifully too. It’s so great to see older people with such fashion wisdom.
November 20, 2012 at 12:09 am
Agreed – The socks are too cool!

(Anyone noticed the style of the girl at the back!?! I like it)
He is so cute!
November 19, 2012 at 4:12 pm
I could write a poem about the exquisite tailoring of that pinstripe suit.
And a sonnet for the lady.
November 19, 2012 at 4:13 pm
There are thing or two that Italian men can teach to the rest of the world…style is certainly one of them!
November 29, 2012 at 10:09 am
But for the rest we have a lot to learn ;-)

Men should always wear suits – fact!
November 19, 2012 at 4:23 pm
Very wide peak lapel. Milanese style. The Italians have elegance down to a T.
This is how every men should look when they get older!
November 19, 2012 at 4:32 pm
The Socks!!! i was giving a shout out aloud seeing it – so much humour. fabulous!
November 19, 2012 at 4:41 pm
He’s so cool and trendy! I wish my grandpa was like that!
November 19, 2012 at 4:49 pm
Tres Chic! Not sure who the couple are..but agree nice to see elderly people looking so fabulous…always in Italy (especially Milan)…
November 19, 2012 at 5:25 pm
It’s nice to see these elegant italian men on this site from time to time
and Mr Beppe is very recognisable with his big smile, his infallible sense of style and his great sense of humour : the safety pin as a tie pin !
November 19, 2012 at 5:26 pm
What stylish man!
Really great pics. And the man has a big charisma. Nice day.
November 19, 2012 at 5:39 pm
I hope that someway, somehow, the youths of today see these photos and decide that they need to do a fashion 180…
Love the individual style and attention to detail – it’s the pocket square and the socks that make the look for me -
November 19, 2012 at 5:49 pm
The socks! What a styler! Love it.

Let me me make a drier point : the fit, quality and condition of the clothes. The knot of the tie, the shirt cuffs length, the crease in the trousers, how the shirt collar sits, and, yes, not merely the colour of the socks but how they “sit”. The witty stuff is helpful, of course, to relieve the palate, and make him stlish, but the “technical” side should not be underestimated.

And magnified by his companion. The luminous skin, the jawbone, the hair knot, those glorious eyebrows, the cut of the jacket, her ring, her nail lacquer, the way she is holding her pen – fantastic. But the way she looks at him – while his every detail is impeccable – gorgeous shot. What a story! Thank you for sharing it.
November 19, 2012 at 6:53 pm
Simply elegant and handsome.

Nice socks, ha ha ha :) I am actually impressed by the lady next to him :)
November 20, 2012 at 4:35 am
Gammarelli socks! I wear them every day.
November 20, 2012 at 8:00 am
He is SPLENDID!!!! very elegant with a little bit of humor!!! at that age he can do whatever he wants!!! simply MERAVIGLIOSO!
November 20, 2012 at 8:40 am
…is not about the socks, or even you can have the same taylor …yet is the way you do…
November 20, 2012 at 8:41 am
Good afternoon fashionkids. Can anyone please tell me who he is? What’s his profession? He isn’t a designer, is he? Thank you very much.
November 20, 2012 at 9:37 am
Will you LOOK at this man! I love the flourish of the pocket square and the high-end umbrella. Just read in a styling book that nothing undoes an outfit quicker than a cheap, three-dollar umbrella, which I’m sure would NEVER happen with this guy.
I want to be his female equivalent when I grow up!!!
November 20, 2012 at 9:54 am
So much style, straight down to his socks.

That is Beppe Modanese, founder of Milan Fashion Week! What an impeccable style.. typical Milanese.
November 20, 2012 at 9:11 pm
BEPPE makes me smile. He is absolute perfection with a sense of humor. You just can’t get more elegant than that!
November 21, 2012 at 6:18 am
Beppe is so stylish & handsome, I’ll marry him….!!!!!

The socks themselves are great–but in combination with those shoes, they rise to awesome.

There would be no better conversation than a conversation with that guy. From his cheeky demeanor to his effortless style, he’s one from whom I’d love to take notes.
November 25, 2012 at 12:55 am
I love him. his style…Do you remember me?
I gave you my illust of Beppe!
These pictures also make me draw him!!!!
November 25, 2012 at 11:50 pm
Nothing beats the original. Beppe was stylin’ before most of us even existed on this planet.
November 27, 2012 at 1:13 pm
Age means nothing! Effortless class….

…. questa è classe , classe pura
February 16, 2013 at 3:23 pm
I actually don’t agree wit the majority of comments. He dresses very badly for the shape of his body; he needs to find a much better tailor. I like the flair he employs in his use of colour but it shows no structure and often looks gauche. While his style may be remarkable in Italy, In London he would look totally normal, actually extremely conservative. In fact in British terms he could have easily bought all of these clothes in a department store.
