now that’s what i call style and carrying it off like you mean it…….busines style here done with great personal tuchees all over ….from the sweater to the soft briefcase…… You caught him at a good angle too Sar …no chance of caching his “CAMERA FACE”
Oh, what a dapper look! But is it just me, or are the Italians the only people on this planet who can get away with this combination (the same way that only they can make riding on a Vespa look sexy)? It almost feels like if you tried it in say Houston, you’d be accused of affectation.
Italian men just have “it” when it comes to dressing, don’t they? In that pose it looks like the traveler just realized that he forgot to pack a sweater, so he tied one around his shoulders and made it work.
The photo of my friend Jason shows that you can look Italian after living here in Italy for years but he is as American as apple pie and throwing the sweater over the shoulders is a very cultivated look as is the neatly folded white handkerchief. Very Diego della Valle! Nothing casual or thrown together about this look and even if you are from Tennessee as is Jason you can convince people that you are from Milano.
People tend to forget that it’s cheap to dress like that in Milan where you can get a custom suit for $500. Things costs a lot less there than here. Stores like Barney’s would seriously go out of business in Milan.
If good clothes are as cheap here as it is in Milan, we all look this good everyday.
I may be more familiar with little cities here in Italy, but you don’t see this combination every day. To me it’s quite strange, but he’s so tidy even in this out-of-place-detail that it works. Usually you see a sweater as a scarf on papa’s boys or middle aged people. Also I don’t think here it’s that cheap to dress well, maybe in 2006 it was. These pics capture part of the italian urban culture in a way that a normal tourist, even italian, could never even see, you have a great eye.
