I saw a male stylist in a very similar 'cardigan' @ Paris Fashion Week. It had a matching chunky navy 'snood' which also gave a very slim and luxe look. x

He looks great. Simply but luxury chic!
April 7, 2010 at 2:26 pm
I definitely agree…not to mention the comfort of less bulk.
April 7, 2010 at 2:28 pm
I'm normally not such a big fan of cardies, but this is more like a knitted blazer. Very chic. Love the dark blue, too.
April 7, 2010 at 2:35 pm
I would be delighted to own a feminine version of this jacket!

"A slim cut sleeve drops 10 pounds off any guy in a suit."
Ain't that the truth.
Same for a woman btw. (Jil Sander's jackets…perfection)
April 7, 2010 at 2:41 pm
Woah, I need his jacket for the hot days!
April 7, 2010 at 2:42 pm
Love it! I would even wear it. xo
April 7, 2010 at 2:44 pm
OH! That jacket is so exciting! knit fabric! so unexpected! I'd love to see someone in a head-to-toe knit suit. I've never actually seen knit trousers before, though….
April 7, 2010 at 2:50 pm
This guy has so much style-so comfortable with it.
April 7, 2010 at 2:52 pm
I've only been in Florence for six months, but one of the first things I noticed is how much more creative and amazing their knitwear is! I bought way too many sweaters…
April 7, 2010 at 3:02 pm
where can i get such a jacket?! lol
April 7, 2010 at 3:20 pm
i love it !!!amazing !!!http://bulbizar.blogspot.com/
April 7, 2010 at 3:32 pm
This would be perfect for a day of rehearsals in the theater. Warm, comfy, and totally chic.
April 7, 2010 at 3:44 pm
Lovely shot. Just for the record, though, the jacket's crocheted, not knitted. It looks as if it IS entirely handmade — the original work of a doting mother with a mean crochet hook?
September 8, 2012 at 11:52 pm
Yes, its correct – this blazer is crocheted, and fully handmade, stitches on edges done backwards. Somebody with great attention to details and shape made this piece. REALLY WELL DONE! Bravo!
and, as always, nice shot, and hot guy!
April 7, 2010 at 3:47 pm
I have a similair one, same colour, love it!! (@Zara I'm a girl)The best thing about this men are his hands, perfection! Soooo important, says a lot about a person ;-)
April 7, 2010 at 3:52 pm
Great jacket. I have a similar knitted jacket which is double breasted with gold buttons. I love it!
April 7, 2010 at 3:53 pm
I wish I could have this one, I'm a sucker for navy + double breasted. Also if in cotton I think they're great way to keep a tailored look in the summer heat. You can just throw them in the machine.
April 7, 2010 at 4:03 pm
Ohhho, when I was young I had one almost the same, didn´t know it was a guy jacket:)cinna
April 7, 2010 at 4:04 pm
Is this really knit? Looks like crochet from what I can see.
April 7, 2010 at 4:08 pm
I think I'd like this better if his shirt was different underneath. It's a bit too casual for me.

I am currently expecting my third child and struggling to look smart as my belly grows. It would be great if you could feature a few expectant mothers so I can get some ideas? Please? :-)
April 7, 2010 at 4:25 pm
Great fit and texture.
April 7, 2010 at 4:32 pm
i know this man …he is my father's friend …a very stilish man from Bologna …
April 7, 2010 at 4:58 pm
Such an ease about him …. Just love it.
April 7, 2010 at 6:19 pm
True about the 10 pounds.Love the image, and that guy looks great.
love that scarf thing hanging, out of place, but awesome…
April 7, 2010 at 6:28 pm
Can anybody recommend where I can buy one of these?
This sweater would look good on me cuz I got big shoulders.

I think you guys are missing the most interesting thing about this post:
Scott put a caption with the photo!!!
April 7, 2010 at 7:06 pm
Slim sleeves is defiantly an effective diet, exactly the reason why this guys shouldn't be having such slim sleeves, he looks waaay too skinny, other than that though, it is certainly a nice outfit.
April 7, 2010 at 7:18 pm
it's a sweater and it looks far too small for him. and slim cuts only make slim people look slim. they make large men look like they're stuffed into a burrito wrapper. don't generalize based on what works on skinny folk.
April 7, 2010 at 7:29 pm
More polished than a pull-over and more relaxed than a wool blazer. So yes, more is more. This man's in great shape. I like.

April 7, 2010 at 8:18 pm
i never thought of that. but i only think about girl stuff anyway, that is why i love to look at your photos – i learn something every time.
and it is a fantastic jacket. very unique.
April 7, 2010 at 8:38 pm
One can only wish to grow up with such simple elegance, subtlety and class. The check scarf adds a touch of quirk.
April 7, 2010 at 9:02 pm
You have to be really thin to pull this off… he looks fantastic and the fit is amazing, I completely agree with the sleeves I recently had all my suits modified for slimmer sleeves once Scott pointed it out "they're made so they fit everybody with fat wrists". This wide cuff thing is going too far. BTW look at the shoulders that jacket is really well made, the shape is a wonder to look at.

yes, lovely jacket. i want it!
April 8, 2010 at 12:06 am
i wud say a unisexual jacket. another style statement.
April 8, 2010 at 3:33 am
But, what do you do when your elbows make little pockets on your arms that make the sleeves look frumpy?
April 8, 2010 at 3:37 am
Haha, so hilariously cool.

Uhhmmm…KNITWEAR. I love it each day more.It's a mix of luxury and simplicity,comfort and -some times- discret elegance.It takes me to the pictures of the times between the two world wars(self-made and poverty but also Chanel and Sciaparelli).It was yesterday – my childhood – when my mother made me so many sweaters.I agree with Misantropic Pulp opinion's.
April 8, 2010 at 7:48 am
love this outfit
April 8, 2010 at 8:39 am
To quote a former respondent: Very Mia Farrow.
No, no, no.
April 8, 2010 at 10:04 am
double breasted and slimming? never thought I'd agree!
April 8, 2010 at 11:25 am
He looks incredible……so much in fashion is best suited to the very young, but style is timeless.
April 8, 2010 at 12:40 pm
Gorgeous jacket! I have an old black Ralph Lauren sweater blazer and I wear it constantly. I like everything he is wearing – his jeans, t-shirt, and plaid scarf are all beautiful. It's a fantastic casual but elegant look.
April 8, 2010 at 2:58 pm
What a fantastic look!
April 8, 2010 at 11:33 pm
you know i love stuff like this but never wear it because by the end of the day it's 3 inches longer and the sleeves are stretched out beyond my knuckles
fresh on him though, good look
April 9, 2010 at 2:06 pm
Great fit. I like anything that shows some shape.
April 9, 2010 at 9:43 pm
The best part is the tartan scarf poking out at the bottom. Almost like an 18th-century army officer's sash.
April 10, 2010 at 2:44 pm
I know this guy, he's the owner of a male boutique in Bologna. This jacket though is nothing compared to the one Cipriani proposed in his spring/summer collection this season….

The side pockets kicks up the waist nicely too.
April 13, 2010 at 7:58 pm
I have to concur that this lovely jacket isNOT knitted, it is indeed crochetted. I'm not being picky here… there is a big difference between the two crafts (retailers constantly get it wrong).
April 15, 2010 at 10:06 am
I totally agree this is a very flattering style. The thin sleeve makes the armhole very high which visually lengthens the waist making the guy look taller and slimmer. This is why the British cut of tailored jacket is so flattering, because the armhole is cut high.
May 3, 2011 at 7:35 am
Nice jacket, I like this style. Thanks to share…
August 8, 2012 at 3:45 pm
The colors belnd well. A bit on the safe side though…but fashion is beatiful no what what!!

The knitted sweater is really beautiful and it fits him so well. nice pose as well.
