whoa! isn’t this Alessandro “Kalashnikov” Calascibetta, the hardest-working and fastest-rhyming stylist in Milanese fashion! he is the fashion director of Style magazine, Italy’s coolest men’s rag and the Corriere della Sera’s very own lifestyle monthly. definitely one of the most fashion-forward guys in Milan, in this picture Ale does his famous Marlboro Mickey Mouse impression. Those yellow gloves are as cool as it gets this winter: you have to wear something like that around here, where only the sharpest survive. way to go, Sart!
Dear Sartorialist, I just wanted to say that after discovering your blog a few weeks ago it has become a firm favourite of mine and has inspired me to wear my clothes in different and more unique ways. I think you are doing a geat job, I am very interested in fashion and style and wish to finish a book about It i started a couple of years ago about style in every facet of peoples lives, including such people as Deeda Blair, Hubert de Givinchy and The Duchess of Devonshire who I unterviewed, but universtity rather got on top of me so it has been put on the back burner! Am only 22 so have many years to finish it! David
Though I admire the color play/co-ordination, and the coat length, this doesn’t quite add up for me. The jacket seems skimpy, and the white jeans (or “jeans”) with cut-off hems, well, just aren’t my cup of tea….
@ if i see that jacket hanging on a rack i would never have thought it possible to pair it with white pants and accessorize it with yellow leather gloves ! but on this man he looks epicly handsom hehe if that makes sense .. @
i don’t know why but i love this, but i’ve actually seen something very similar before. I was on a train in London and saw a very smart dressed man with a navy coat and beige scarf but with hot pink gloves on, something very cool and quirky about it.
I love the yellow gloves against the conservative outfit. Gives the flair to the whole look.
On another note, has anybody seen the new Etro spring jacket? I really love the colorful banner linings and the little detail on the collar. It buttons across like a horse riding jacket. Just a random thought when I looked at the “At Etro” heading.
Oh no, he looks like a plumber or trash collector with his big yellow gloves. Also cannot bring myself to like white pants in winter. Perhaps that is because I live in a climate of 6 monthsÂ´ snow every year. I like to see the lower part of people walking on the snow as well!
Scott, this is my *favorite* men’s shot you’ve ever taken. I don’t know what it is about this guy – his nonchalant stance, the white jeans, the great timeworn (but seriously sexy) looks or the yellow gloves – but he just sends me. You posted this a while ago and I printed it out and put it on my bulletin board, I was that captivated.
Good pose, nice glove which has enlighten the whole look. Oh.. and the cigarette. I like those pictures that you took, with cigarette in their hand :p Not to say it’s good to smoke, but it just add credits to their look.
Haha The Marlboro Mickey mouse is the best way to describe it…and than it seems almost impossible to wear white pants in winter…but on that outfit they just look fantastik! He is for sure a candidate for the sartorial price!
