    I think that there is a difference between being elegant and trying to catch someone’s attentions by using clothes in a random way.
    I’m Italian from Milan, so maybe a little bit influenced to the city where I live, but I would rather Elegance (the one who is noticed and remembered by not being noticed) than eccentricity. A bespoke suit than layering different clothes with no idea beyond.

    Yes, I can see that clearly here. Neither one is right or wrong, it’s just the difference between New York and Milan. I admire both.

      Dear westcoasttiger,
      thank you very much for mentioning me.

      You are totally right.
      The place where you are born and where you live influence everything of your style and lifestyle.
      There is no “right or wrong” there is only a way to express yourself.

      In my case my grandma was a tailor so I grew up with her idea and her proportions of the “well dressed man” (in Italian sounds different, I’m not able to describe all the details of her sentence, it will take too many words!). Now those ideas are still valid for me BUT must be reshaped as I’m doing in my business. Eyes open to the future never forgetting our roots.

      The Gentleman in the pic is a good example of what I mean.

      We can go on our discussion, if you want it will be a pleasure.

      Here my e-mail: style@styleinmi.com

        Thanks for the reply and your generous offer. I checked your blog/service and while very interesting, unfortunately it is not to be for it is above my means; thesartorialist provides a vicarious glimpse of those around the world.

        However, your response did change my view on bespoke tailoring – you’re right when one has a skillful tailor that listens to one’s vision and brings the customer’s individual sense of creativity to reality. Your interesting family history also reminded me of a great interview recently Esquire Magazine did with designer Daniela Ciancio, who created the clothing for the Italian film “La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty)”. Your sentiments and belief system reminded me of her ideals – she described the film’s main character “…an old-fashioned man alive today” who is surrounded by “a world that has lost a certain elegance.” I agree with your grandmother; whether it’s in New York or Milan or Tokyo – it’s caring about something almost long lost. Fashion sense changes with time of course but the passion shouldn’t, at least for those so fortunate to participate. What I loved most from her interview was when she was asked if there is such a thing in Italy as one “…trying to hard” and looking like a fake, she replied there is no such term in Italy. Ha… brava Ms. Cancio. Brava!

    Without the tie maybe. I feel if I was introduced to this handsome man, my gaze would be constantly going to the shoes. Perhaps he’s in a hurry to get back to his apartment just realising he’s left his slippers on!!!

    Superb and effortless style! For me,the jacket is a bit short and I would wear the shoes with jeans or a more casual pant,but the ensemble work for him. The point is that he looks completely comfortable in his clothes which includes a tie. Men everywhere should pay attention to this photo. Love the sunglasses too!

    Disappointed by all of the negative comments regarding his shoes. The man is truly dashing in every way! Those shoes are HIS choice. They express how he was feeling that day, and who he is! So you don’t like them, you would prefer different, more predicable, shoes. Who cares? This is about HIM!

    • annabella

      May 15, 2014 at 11:25 pm

      HERE, HERE! Yes Bob….thanks for pointing out that the ‘slippers’ have everything to do with why he floated into our eyes. Had he been wearing the elegant Milan ‘regulation’ high style loafers I doubt he would have floated onto this page. (Exquisitely dressed people are the delightful standard in Milan). Despite looking rakish, handsome and elegantly dressed, i’m pretty sure he would have been earth bound without his rich and wonderful magic slippers! Like a Jenna Lyons for men. These style masters surpise…and float!

      Thanks for catching the ‘ slipper float’, Scott. Heavenly!

      PS…Also has the photgraphic feel and glee of the photos on the Last page of every issue of Life Magazine. Back in the day, we all looked at that last page photo, first!

  70. Ulrico

    May 19, 2014 at 2:37 pm

    The shoes are indeed Furlane, or more precisely Scarpet. They used to be the spring/summer shoes for people from Friuli, a neglected, northern and beautiful region of Italy. A sort of espadrillas for us up there in the corner between Austria and Slovenia.
    While they are very beautiful, and can be extremely elegant, wearing them with a suit is just another posing nonsense.
