    I have such a "thing" for older gentleman! (alas… I note the ring on his wedding finger.) Incredibly confident in his purple sweater, and his ever-so-slightly snug plaid wool trousers. Beautiful face. (men age in the most wonderful way…)

    The combination of purple, olive and grey is genius (so Marni)!

    Nice find. This old chap exudes style and confident attitude. I'm not sure I would wear such a jacket with the purple jumper, but his plaid trousers and scarf are beautifully provocative. I would like to know what kind of shoes he was wearing.

    Suede is so delicious. Today, I wore my coffee brown M65 Army jacket with a collar like this man, but I don't look this bottle-green elegant. Timeless.

    I bet he was wearing black brogues just like these:

    What stuck out to me most was the purple color of his sweater. It's rare for me to find guys wearing that shade of color, but when it's pulled off well, it's a great look.

    And the pants, the pants!! I want shorts with that plaid pattern.

    He is a stylish older gent it's true. The photo was captivating til I scrolled down and got to the cigarette in his left hand. Smoking is never cool.

    Although I often find Milan to be an unlively & bo-ring city, I must admit that Milaneses have a real eye for style. They do not follow fashion, yet look remarkable!

    You tell me where you're going to find a cooler gentleman other than Italy. Unlike many subjects we see, he looks effortless as though he has nothing to prove to anyone about what he wears. That smile further broadcasts his confidence.

    There's a lesson for young and old in flesh and blood. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    I also see the De Niro resemblance. Nicely noted. And De Niro is the Ayatollah of cool.

    Because of the low number of comments, I feel like this isn't getting quite the attention it deserves! I love that this man is older and elegant and distinguished, but also very modern. He has something very fashion-concious about him–the jacket and the colour, and the slimmer fit iof the pants. I feel like this is a man who is dressing by style and not just tradition.

  64. Daniel

    March 11, 2010 at 2:26 am

    Style–this man certainly has it. Why? Because he certainly thought about what he was putting on in the morning, but he could give a damn what you think about it. Definitely not trendy, nor is it "classic", what he is wearing is a direct channeling of his own inner self. Good show, mate. I just wish I could see his shoes. . .

    PS all of your photographs are beautiful.
