Beautiful photo, Sart! One of my favourites. The Italians do this so well. I love the jacket, white trousers, and suede slip-ons. There have been a lot of white trousers in your photos from Milan this summer. I think it’s a really good look, especially when they’re tapered. More American men should wear white trousers, especially in warmer climates.
Everytime I see a shot of your very dapper-looking men, I try to translate the outfit onto a woman’s body in my head…slimming the cuts, changing the shoes, adding accessories etc., etc. and although this color is often thought of as a girl’s best friend, I think I like this look better on a man! :D Bravo! This portrait makes my day.
I the effortless style Italian have while still being so at ease. Allow me, if you will, to go out on a limb: He is wearing a linen Luigi Borrelli sportscoat, a pair of Bontoni mocassins (suede perhaps), and a Brioni dress shirt. As for the jeans? It’s hard to say.
I’m a bit confused by some of the earlier comments. The gentleman’s jeans are not ‘tight’ anywhere that I can see. They fit appropriately for a somewhat lo-rise slim cut jean. Have we become so accustomed to seeing baggy, ill-fitting jeans on men that anything else is considered ‘tight?’
I can’t see the pockets, but the jeans look like they are by Dsquared2, which has also been showing bright candy-coloured jackets like this in their Spring collections for years.
And those who claim that American men cannot or do not dress like this have apparently not spent much time in the Southern states. Swop out this chap’s belt and shoes for a ribbon belt and white bucks and he would fit in at any country club or Sunday brunch below the Mason-Dixon.
this is SO SEXY!!! he looks smoking hot. and clearly v. confident in his masculinity. i wish more american men had the confidence to dress like this. (from the comments it sounds like some are inspired – yay!)
How Cool is that? Well so much so that I’m freezing in the middle of summer! He is like the modern day Pierrot le Fou…by the way, Belmondo is a bit forgotten as a style icon but during his heyday in the 60s there were only Peter O’Toole, James Coburn and Michael Caine who could match his style. Thanks for this great shot!
You can SEE this man’s aura reek of greatness. The color combo is perfect. The high collared shirt is powerful. The way he has his pocket square folded is subtle, playful, and ties the bottom half with the top.
