    He reminds me of Ted (food& wine guy), one of the Fab Five guys.

    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.

    I hope this is a trend. We see this from RL for spring too. Great!

    Hooray for the Italians, combining conservative elements in a unique manner. A signature style; business attire need not be uptight!

    Thats not often you can see someone in those clothes doing that with a sweater. Most people dress the same look the same, but this is nice.

    I totally thought this was Ted from Queer Eye for a sec. It’s the glasses.

    I may be late to the party, but has anyone seen the Fall issue of Menswear Magazine, around, say, page 58? If not, you must! Go, now! (Barnes & Noble)

    Sorry, but I find this “look” studied and effete…..

    …actually, in a way, it has a kind of surrealist, Schiaperalli quality….

    Personally, I think it would look too affected in the United States, but it works well in Europe.
    Love his shoes by the way.

    The cut of his suit is fantastic. The sweater around the jacket…I am on the fence about but the fact that it is such a great red makes it work for me

    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.

    Just simply chic, it’s a classic italian way.
    Nothing to say more. He’s a classic man without fantasy, he repeats a style without add one gr. of himself.
    With me it’s not that chic.

    I tried this look today in NYC and received a lot of looks on the street…looks that would suggest..”I have never seen that before.”

    the sweater around the neck is a very casual-friday-thing from a couple of years on in italy, although i’ve never seen it with business suit, that, by the way, doesn’t really suits him!

    This is true style and panache – good suit, plain shirt and plain black shoes and belt ( correct with a blue/grey suit), an the plain maroon jersey thrown over his shoulders.

    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.
