The suit and slippers! SO sexy.
May 14, 2014 at 4:20 pm
I think the suit, shirt, and tie are perfect! The shoes…I dunno.
May 15, 2014 at 12:59 pm
…but they make him fly! seriously though I agree with you justray.
May 15, 2014 at 2:31 pm
I agree. Everything is perfect but i’m not feeling the shoes.
May 16, 2014 at 12:43 am

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.

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.

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!

He is simply fabulous and I love his shoes! x

Ay-ay-ayyy, your pics!
May 14, 2014 at 5:09 pm
The shoes are le Furlane probably. The gondoliers in Venice wear them. Another wonderful italian tradition’s product.
May 14, 2014 at 5:15 pm
Did he dash out of the house in his slippers? Running late for a business meeting? :)
May 14, 2014 at 5:20 pm
No doubt, Italians certainly know how to make a fine pair of shoes… they’re like the slipper equivalent of a magic flying carpet!
He looks effortlessly cool. I’d love to go to Milan to see the amazing style.
I left my heart in Miami
May 14, 2014 at 5:53 pm
I guess he is Larusmiani’s owner
May 15, 2014 at 7:58 am
He is the Larusmiani’s owner. Guglielmo Miani. Super cool…
May 14, 2014 at 5:59 pm
wow, his shoes …!))
May 14, 2014 at 6:04 pm
Clap clap clap gorgeous, but the shoes…
May 14, 2014 at 6:20 pm
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!!!

The man’s wardrobe elegant in an Italian way. Shoes a matter of preference. Italian leather shoes a better choice.
May 14, 2014 at 7:20 pm
shoe cool suit fine…. not together
May 14, 2014 at 7:43 pm
Run, run honey bunny!

I’m going to blurt out the first word that came to mind…
May 14, 2014 at 7:48 pm
those red shoes are awesome! love the fun pop of color for an unexpected look!

Ha! Good one.
May 14, 2014 at 9:10 pm
Great suit! Love his hair too!
May 14, 2014 at 9:29 pm
Unbelievably hot. This is what I want men to look like.
May 14, 2014 at 11:41 pm
May 14, 2014 at 11:52 pm
Very sharp and stylish! You captured the moment so beautifully!
May 14, 2014 at 11:59 pm
I think he’s a little light in the loafers if you know what I’m saying.
May 15, 2014 at 1:37 am
Sweet running shoes :-)
May 15, 2014 at 3:00 am
Brilliant motion shot, gorgeous style.
May 15, 2014 at 3:09 am
Scott try the comfortable and hand made Tanino Crisci’s shoes via Montenapoleone.
May 15, 2014 at 3:12 am
If those are velvet slippers, as they seem to be, then this man is the chicest of all in Milan! http://madelienerose.com/
May 15, 2014 at 3:57 am
WOW just what I was looking for. Came here by searching for train
May 15, 2014 at 4:06 am
May 15, 2014 at 4:23 am
The guy has this “classy look” in the face, but I don’t like his choice for clothes/shoes. Sorry!
May 15, 2014 at 4:26 am
Wow ! Super cool. I love the way you captured him with both feet off the ground, the movement is superb – I wonder how many shots you took of him ?
May 15, 2014 at 4:38 am
The shoes are perfect
May 15, 2014 at 6:15 am
He looks like out of an italian movie, and looks like Marcello Mastroianni :)
May 15, 2014 at 6:29 am
Wow, very nice shot!!

I love his suit, but I think the slippers were note the best choice
May 15, 2014 at 6:33 am
Very interesting pic.
May 15, 2014 at 7:36 am
Only in Milan.

they could be Sabahs, which are actually mostly sold in NYC and turkey:

Action shots! Love them.
May 15, 2014 at 9:06 am
Once more, as I am scrolling down, I love the mans style and… Surprise ! The shoes ! Comfortable, fun, colorful and so light to run around. Maybe the wonderful loafers are in the office.
May 15, 2014 at 9:39 am
literally ….hot-foot it to
May 15, 2014 at 10:17 am
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!
Amazing! The look and the photograph.
May 15, 2014 at 10:36 am
I love it! Business on top; fun on the feet.
May 15, 2014 at 11:31 am
Supreme suave-love a man who cleans up well
May 15, 2014 at 11:35 am
Scott, I suppose you were thinking of Lartigue when you took this picture. A floating world…
May 15, 2014 at 12:26 pm
Great Photograph! He is literally floating above the side walk mid-step!
May 15, 2014 at 12:45 pm
he looks fabulous…love the shoes!
Love this shot!
May 15, 2014 at 4:34 pm
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!
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!
May 15, 2014 at 11:13 pm
Very handsome man!
May 16, 2014 at 3:47 am
okay love the suit, he is obviously cuts a dashing figure, but am beginning to tire of seeing men wearing ‘slippers’ (otherwise this would be a perfect)
May 16, 2014 at 3:49 am
actually it almost looks as though he was late for an appointment and ran out of his abode whilst wearing his slippers.. forgot to remove them in other words….
May 16, 2014 at 5:07 am
Silenzio……….AMEN!!!!!!!! Mi Piace :)
May 16, 2014 at 6:30 am
May 16, 2014 at 5:48 pm
The unexpected shoes seem to be a point of contention here, but for me, they add a level of intrigue and mystery to the wearer.
May 17, 2014 at 2:28 am
Where can I get those fabulous slippers in the U.S.?
May 17, 2014 at 5:32 am
Donaldo come here, hurry up
May 17, 2014 at 1:47 pm
Love it! He would turn my head…
May 17, 2014 at 4:34 pm
I work in a fine-dining restaurant and see these slippers all the time. I have no idea why, but I seriously love them! Nice shot.
May 17, 2014 at 6:25 pm
May 18, 2014 at 4:15 pm
What a great picture
I like the moment. Great capture
May 18, 2014 at 5:52 pm
The shoes are typical Venitian.They’re called “friulane”.
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.
May 21, 2014 at 11:32 pm
Hotter that George Clooney…
May 23, 2014 at 8:30 am
I really love that you capture the moment when he is off the ground~~~~
May 23, 2014 at 11:10 am
Italians do it better!!!!!
May 25, 2014 at 1:11 pm
A gentleman will walk but never run…
Awesome picture and outfit. Love the haircut as well. And the cigarette gives him a relaxed look although he clearly is in a hurry.
May 25, 2014 at 1:12 pm
Yesss, shoes are velvet Furlane, I bought @ Dittura, Venezia, behind Piazza San Marco
May 26, 2014 at 8:12 am
FURLANE & VENEZIA RULES!
May 26, 2014 at 9:13 pm
love everything about this.
June 2, 2014 at 9:55 pm
Tightrope walker. Well-heeled, too!
June 7, 2014 at 10:40 pm
I LOVE these shoes with this look, and the little bunny hop he seems to be doing.
June 13, 2014 at 9:23 am
vabbe ma li mortacci vostra. Ma levate ste scarpe
June 25, 2014 at 11:39 am
looks like Kevin Costner
August 30, 2014 at 8:47 am
I like the suit, personal not too keen on the shoes!
