Great coat (the cut, the fabric, the making of it… vintage?), and great personal style. I love the detail of fastening only one button on the sleeves, unfortunately one can rarely do this nowadays with off-the-rack garment, even with the very expensive ones.
Interesting.. still absorbing the image. but I like some of the things its suggesting, like that scarf!I want men to wear their scarves like that with vests and suits and outerwear and just about everything. I love it!! Its so gentlemanly and i wish I lived in a time where men wore their scarves like that.
I also really love the colors. (but purple pants a little bold for my taste)
Grande Luca, I love the orchestrated texture flow, the brown donegal herringbone db coat is massive, but beautifully complimented by the accent color on the trouser and adding a touch of softness around the neck doesn’t hurt. italianos….. what can i say?
while i admire this guys “devil may care” attitude, in all honesty i think his look is overblown, pushy and more than a bit ridiculous. i didn’t say anythimg a while back, when you posted him in that crazy plaid suit. but just because clothes are extremely well made and expensive doesn’t neccesarilly mean you should wear them. he’s way too much all at once(and yet he doesn’t wear a hat, go figure)
I love it. The purple trouser are amazing with that jacket. I love how the sleeve on the jacket is left open, & the flair that it creates. That’s 2 people now who have left the top buttons of their DB coats open. It looks really good on this jacket. Even the back of the jacket is amazing. Did you see him without the coat on? Losing the brown tweed of the jacket and replacing it with the blue of his sweater looks like it might throw the whole look off.
WOW!i love the way he is playing wih the aphorism when you have a truly great coat it doesn’t matter what you wear underneath, yet at the same time he bows to tradition – suede with tweed and the knot of the scarf. the colour of the pants are fantastic but may be too much by themelves. But the cut of that coat is to die for – menswear designers take note.
IÂ´d say what is popular now: There is too much going on in this photo.Too much of about everything;textures,colors the bands on his wrist. I really think that this is a photo which could have been left unpublished.There simply is not enough of anything.
Yikes, fashion flashback! I lived in Rome during the winter of 1983-4 when it was all about the vintage herringbone overcoat (but in black and white) for men and women. I owned two and saw hundreds, but none of them had the swagger and fit of this specimen, especially the tapering of the back waist. Those loose pleats are gorgeous.
I’m loving the purple pants with the brown tweed — I always think of tertiary colors with earth tones as the Missoni palette — but I think they’d look sort of inspid with the baby blue sweater.
I also appreciate that this handsome man is comfortable with his receding hairline and not trying to do something cute with it. It adds so much to the look of confidence.
Can we put aside for a moment the idea that an overcoat is “part of an outfit?” Granted, if you’re a Rubinacci you may have your pick of a dozen coats each season, but too much thought about teaming your overcoat with what’s under it (especially when it’s casual wear as here) is going to send most of us into a fit of depression.
I LIKE that LR hasn’t let the topcoat dictate what he’s wearing beneath it. He’s clearly a man who likes color in large doses. But this coat will be as handsome and classic over a dark suit, or with jeans and a cream or black turtleneck.
Like most city-dwellers, who don’t have to be behind the wheel, I do have more than one coat(in the north we seem to need one for every ten degree change in temperature, and I may opt for brown over black, or tweed over leather because of what I’m wearing (though more likely because of what I’ll be doing or where I’m going) So your trousers MIGHT help you choose the coat for the day – but don’t let your coats dictate the color of your trousers!
I’m normally a purist when it comes to judging mens fashion, but I just LOVE this for all its quirkiness: the insouciance of the coat, the scarf, the sweater, the bracelets, and I adore the magenta trousers! But what really pulls the look together is that he looks so comfortable and happy in it. It’s the attitude that makes it work.
Could’t agree more with Mr. Timore. Since the other posting, I thought this guy didn’t have much to say. It is like a musician who knows the notes by heart, but when he plays there is no music, or no ‘good’ music. Everything sprouts at the same time. It doesn’t work for me. One must say, however, that quality of the garnments is great.
this is a second picture of this tailor on your blog as far as I remember. i admire his taste! not everyone would dare to make and to wear such a combination. not everyone would look so cute in it. great done! please more pictures of this gentlemen!
I love the individual elements of his outfit, but they don’t quite seem to come together for me. The coat is amazing, the colour of his trousers are amazing, especially those flecks of colour, the cut, yum, and the bracelets are a nice touch of whimsy. So prolly a half thumbs up. If that were possible.
Back looks great, sleeve looks great, but the front looks sloppy. Maybe it’s just the way he was standing. Like the fabric and how it goes with the trousers. Like this much better than his peak lapel ensemble from a month ago.
I think this man pulled off a look that not many people could. He makes fashion suit his style, not the other way around. I would like to see more people willing to take these sorts of fashion risks because he looks great, but it isn’t a look for everyone. It’s all about the individuality.
What I love about Luca is his daring and his attention to detail. Magenta pants are a strong choice, but the way he wears them are interesting and he carries it with confidence. Also, I think a large part of what makes an outfit fashionable is attention to the smalled details, which, Scott, you obviously get per your photography. I wish we had a photograph without the coat on. I think that seeing the light blue sweater with white oxford underneath would help this outfit make more sense to people poo-pooing the pants.
one of my favorites, ever! i appreciate the close-up to catch the red, green, and yellow bits in the coat fabric, to go along with the colors of the bracelets. this takes it to another dimension…and this ‘fit wouldn’t have looked better with any other color of pants!
