Phenomenal photograph. I do wish more attention was paid to script when it is published though. I enjoy this blog, but typos diminish the experience somewhat.

Hey CMD! Thanks for reading, do you mind letting me know where you see an issue so I can fix it? My editor’s eye must be failing me…
December 27, 2013 at 12:32 am
Taylor, I’ve never noticed any semantic or typo errors on your lovely site. CMD is probably referring to we contributors. I was thinking only a moment ago that perhaps the illiteracies in the comments were a kind of funky Net cool thing (hilarious! not) and that I should loosen up and not let my Dr Sheldon Cooper mind want to correct everything.
December 27, 2013 at 4:23 pm
Hey Taylor, I don’t think this was probably worth calling out in the first place, but it does look like there’s an extra space in the first sentence between the end of the first clause and the comma. Might just by my screen, but it also appears that there’s an extra space or two between the first and second sentence… I’d argue that it’s a little OCD to let something like this ruin a photography blog, tho :)

Really ,are you kidding!!!!! It’s a blog…..enjoy!!!!!

You’re right, their suits will never be out of style
December 23, 2013 at 11:20 pm
Okay, although no-one’s asked for it, here’s my opinion: I am not entirely impresses with the suit of the uomo with the soft mohawk. While I like the look often featured here of the turn of a cuff just above the ankle, there’s something about the proportion of this one that looks more like his pants shrunk in the wash. Perhaps seeing him from the front would show it more impressively? That being said, I enjoy this photo very much. The looks at the far left and far right are my favourites: Immaculate suits with utterly relaxed positions! Very Italian. (I think).

well he is mr domenico gianfrante,of gianfrante showroom.he domenico is extremely talented sartorialist. if your not happy with these top 5 sartorialist.then it similar that you question top 5 nba starting players.about there talent.
December 27, 2013 at 4:25 pm
Dude, all he said is that it’s not to his taste. Just because someone is generally regarded as a “top sartorialist” or something doesn’t mean everyone needs to like it. It was a thoughtful comment, not a dig! The attitude that just because something is well-regarded/popular/etc. we all have to like it makes me crazy; creativity comes from bucking the trend and liking what you like, not what you’re told to like!

Hey Taylor! I think the typo CMD was referring to is in the first sentence: “The was easily one of my favorite images of 2013.”
Love the photograph.

A really good shot, just a pity about the well dodgy haircut second from the left!
December 23, 2013 at 12:14 pm
I think I remember this one and the party. Ever since I found your first book in Toronto at my favourite book store, Nicholas Hoare, now closed, I have loved your work. For three days I returned to the store looking at all the books and finally, because I could only afford one, I chose yours. Perhaps this Christmas, now in Vancouver, I can find the second one.
December 23, 2013 at 12:15 pm
I like that image too and I love Italy. hm.. Have a nice day.
December 23, 2013 at 12:17 pm
Nice shot, one of my favourite also!
December 23, 2013 at 12:33 pm
Yes, I do remember this photo and I love it. (Alessandro and Lino !)
It reminds me of a group of Italian actors in the 50′s and 60′s.

So Italian and so beautiful. I would have liked to see it in colors though.
December 23, 2013 at 12:57 pm
Another fine example of finding beautiful photos in everyday life, Scott. Have a great wonderful holiday and a toast to you for a even better 2014.
December 23, 2013 at 1:17 pm
Timeless indeed! Great photo, and great choice for your favourite of the year!

Amazing pic! Timeless…love it.
December 23, 2013 at 3:06 pm
Outstanding ambiance. Surely these gentlemen
are wearing Carlo Palazzi or Giorgio Amani Cravettes.
December 23, 2013 at 3:18 pm
A perfect fly-0n-the-wall shot! This, Scott, should be the cover of your next book.
December 23, 2013 at 5:43 pm
Indeed a perfect image! Nice that you looked just at the right moment :) Well captured!
December 23, 2013 at 6:33 pm
Hi there to all, how is everything, I think every one is getting
more from this web site, and your views are fastidious designed for new visitors.
December 23, 2013 at 9:01 pm
I love this image – a lot. I loved it before, and now all over again. I hadn’t noticed before all the beautiful textural contrasts between the hard surfaces of the setting and the fabrics, even their hair.
December 23, 2013 at 9:04 pm
Love. You are such a phenomenal story teller with your photography.

I love the monk shoes, I really, really, want a pair
December 24, 2013 at 8:19 am
“…feels timeless and yet captures a very specific moment in men’s fashion.” Yes! Not so long ago men’s pants hems had to fall at a certain spot on the shoe. Right now they are short to show a bit of sock – or no sock, as the case may be.

I love this photo. I would never have known that it was taken in 2013 if I had not read the post. Timeless definitely was the perfect way to describe it!

Such a beautiful and simple moment in time captured. Italians carry off their own brand of style and swag with ease – love this photo! someone pass me a cigarette please i would happily join them!
December 26, 2013 at 6:14 am
Great shot! They all look so comfortable in their elegance!
December 26, 2013 at 8:43 am
White and grey hue gives the photo the eternity shot. Nice selection of wing-tip shoes.
The attire of sophistication is all dissolved in the retro-smile of the old man – so natural beauty of showing off style with flair. Very comfortable.

Flowing very natural – in suiting and expression. The Grey and White combination of the photo background makes it a timeless piece.
Add some pure leather – http://goo.gl/JekiEV and make the men show-off pride in the winters.
Must see Italy

passion, inspiration, emotion … thanks to Scott and his entire staff for all the images that you have given me throughout the year …
December 26, 2013 at 3:19 pm
Great image. It feels like it should be framed and be hanging in some high end men’s fashion boutique. Beautiful shot!
December 26, 2013 at 7:14 pm
December 26, 2013 at 7:26 pm
Loved the whole video – absolutely enchanting! This particular shot has a rake-ish schoolboy out-for-a-quick-one feel about. Very impulsive.
December 26, 2013 at 11:39 pm
Only to know the smells of the tobacco, the wool, the cologne, the leather, and the scents of the manly body would make this amazing amazing photo complete. The composition of these smells are as important to the Italian sartorialist as the cut and quality of cloth. To compare the male asian sartorialist strives to have no scent.
December 27, 2013 at 1:25 am
very good b7w also one very good shot well done scott,this is what happens when you hang around steve mccurry too much.
December 27, 2013 at 2:23 am

December 27, 2013 at 5:01 am
Nice pic, but it seems to me that those in the pic already look dated. As with this style in general, the clothing looks too small and stylistically forced. Some breathing room, for functionality sake, is never a bad thing.
December 27, 2013 at 5:28 am
December 27, 2013 at 7:44 am
Gotta love this old smart look! :)
December 27, 2013 at 7:05 pm
I definitely agree about the “timeless” part. It really captures the beauty of fashion in modern times with a vintage feel.

This captures the sense of how all the things should not be the same, how keeping the differences make the real style and also encourage all the people to work with the timing and out of it.
Cheers for this photo.

Casual and timeless. Truly inspiring.

Lovee this photograph and the people in it. They have style! Thats for sure.
December 30, 2013 at 12:28 am
A truly timeless photo. At first glance, I thought the man in the middle was Ralph Lauren circa 1977.
December 30, 2013 at 3:49 am
it is rare to pore over a position like yours instead.
December 30, 2013 at 4:08 am
Oh! The sex appeal of well dressed men!
December 30, 2013 at 8:53 am
Love the pic!! Really good job! ;)

I like your blog more and more because i have the impression that you’re take more pictures of “real” people, instead of just “fashion people” you know! ;)

December 30, 2013 at 4:59 pm
Awesome shot! And it’s that much better with the story. The images speak for themselves of course, but the description makes it intimate. Thanks for sharing, and I’d love to hear more of the stories behind the photos, if you were so inclined to share.
December 30, 2013 at 5:42 pm
Where can i get it in full-size? To set it up as a wallpaper on retina display.

Magnifique, j’adore la photo, la rue, l’Italie, la couleur, ces hommes affichant un air détaché et plus que gracieux…
December 31, 2013 at 10:50 am
Love the look because it evokes an image from decades past.
December 31, 2013 at 12:16 pm
I’ve looked at this a few times. The only time-bound moment might lie in the trouser lengths. It is a remarkable photo.

If there weren’t man in the middle, you could easily think that this photo is taken somewhere in 30′s or 40′s or earlier. Amazing. :)
