    His knits are nice … I can’t see knits for men being in again this coming fall season? They really got worked out in 2011.

    Great color scheme…but what I really like is that little earring peeking out. It’s gives a nice subtle edge without looking ridiculous.

    Oh, GORGEOUS! The knits are to die for and he looks like a more sophisticated David Beckham. Mmmm

    ‘I’m sexy and I know it’. Love the knit layering and the layering of the greys.

    What a classy look ! What a relief to see again this kind of look after a “wave” of strange looks on the blog (both for men and women) maybe interesting from an artistic point of view but not really nice to watch nor to wear…

    I love the look of his crisp white shirt against the thick textured cardigans. What a great way of transitioning into spring, thanks for the inspiration. xo

    It looks like there’s a lot of good looking men in Italy! I need to remember that for my next holidays! ;) I love, love his style, the white shirt, the jacket, the cardigan, perfect!

    Oh dear I have knitwear envy! These different shades of grey and knitted textures are amazing, and I love it that he paired it with a crisp white shirt and beige pants. Grey and beige sounds dodgy, but works so well!

    This is a great stylism!!!
    Sporty looking, yet very chic… I love the idea of putting the wool jacket on top of everything else… the mix of textures is just fantastic!!

    March 28, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    I love how the softness of the different knits emphasizes the pristine, crisp collar of that shirt. It practically glows, makes me glad he’s carrying that huge scarf, otherwise we’d miss it :D

    So good! I always feel that men are too limited in their wardrobe options compared to the plethora of styles women have to choose from, but this gentlemen has demonstrated that men can be more creative in how they put they ensemble together. I never would have thought to layer a heavier knit cardigan over the finer knit of the soft sportcoat. Well done

    Look at all the great layers of knits and wools. Even his facial hair works with this look. :)

    I love to see knits effectively used in fashion. That cell-knit jacket is state of the art in its styling – look at how the bands are graded to create a sculpture – and the surface texture is wonderful.

    why does he need so much layers to wear in Italy? :)

  62. SB

    I really like the layering and the textures. I think the scarf is overkill, and I am not sure about the turned up collar. It doesn’t feel natural.

    That three-button jacket is to die for.

    I LOVE this look! But isn’t it uncomfortable to wear a sweater over a jacket? If I wore this, the jacket would look all bumpy underneath. How does he do it?

  78. SBR

    March 29, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Oh, I’d like to discuss with him his style. Can you pass his phone number onto me please ? :-)

    March 29, 2012 at 11:50 am

    looks like along with being handsome he’s got a great sense of color and group of wool pieces to keep warm……i do hope he’s also got an anti static bracelet under those layers or his next handshake might be shocking!

    Ok, I’ve got to agree with the fact that this guy looks beyond awesome, but either was the day the pic was taken reallyyyyy cold or he is boiling inside, layering such heavy knits seems more appropriate for an antarctic climate than for Tuscany sunny days.

    I think this man is so handsome, he doesn´t need to dress so “stylish”, he´d look better with someting simpler to mantain balance.

    I’m getting a bit bored with your endless stylish people but this one holds my interest because I am sure there is a story behind the knit. Was it knitted by a lover, a mother? Is it a sentimental piece of clothing? We never find out any of the stories behind the styles on this site and I think it would add a lot to know some of the stories.

    It is to happen only in Firence. Oversized cardigan on the nearly-same- colour- jacket shed with the sunlight and contrasted with natural beard seems nicer than any piece in NYC.
