    ” … and a white carnation”

    Tight white pants and pink jacket are a difficult look to pull off for a man. But he pulls it off! That pink color is just delicious, refreshing, like a “diabolo menthe” (peppermint soda).

    If the fit wasn’t perfect, this ensemble could be a disaster. But it’s wonderful. He looks edgy, refined, and very, very masculine.

    Leave it to an Italian (I’m assuming) to pull this off. He knows the best way to counter-balance a pink jacket (which fits perfectly) is with the most traditional color combo – navy/white.

    And he wears it with such confidence and swagger. Bravo!

    OII – Only In Italy

    Don’t get me wrong, he looks great, and carries the outfit off with great panache, but there is only one country in the world where a man can dress like that and look perfectly natural…

    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.

    This guy’s style screams European. I love it. I wish more American men had the confidence to dress this way. He looks absolutely slick.

    The questionable part here, as I see it, isn’t the pink, but the ensemble: pants too tight and shoes to heavy (and dark).

    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.

    this picture has got me to thinking…

    I think i can pull this off. It’s sleek, simple, and easy.

    The fact that he chose to wear a black shirt makes it work in a more masculine way.

    Wish I had the guts to try it let alone pull it off. This fellow does, smashingly.

    a pink sportcoat and a white carnation, maybe?

    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.

    love the contrast of the black shirt and shoes–really makes the jacket and pant stand out.

    He manages to make it look great – I think the seccret lies in the use of black shirt and accessories.

    Love the coral pink and fitted white pants. He looks quintessentially Italian to me.

    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.

    This is one of my favorite shots, Sart.

    Good work
