This falls into two categories: 1.) do not try this at home, and 2.) the difference between “a” style and “my” style. He is clearly a man of his own mind with a great sense of himself and how things work together. Any one of these elements — from the bold suit, to the socks, to the bracelets, could be a tragedy if in the wrong hands, but he takes all these quirky and bold elements and uses one to subdue the others. Kind of reminds of me of Lincoln’s “Team of Rivals.”
What is he wearing around his right wrist? And why this belt? The square pattern on his suit, the tie, the pink shirt and the pink socks are joyful enough. All these bits and bobs are making him over the top – modest, simple, unpretentious clothing with only one single outstanding piece would suit him much better. Baz
I love windowpane check. This colorway of the check is one of my favorite color combinations.
This man dresses outside the limits of typical men’s “style.” Guys don’t have as many options as women, so I suppose that the fun is found in the creative combinations of texture, pattern, finish, cut, etc. At least they have shoe options!
A beautiful single breasted peak lapel. Working buttons on the cuff. Can’t see the jacket pockets. Are they hacking? And the surcingle belt makes this. It’s out there but I admire the guy’s style and minerals.
This really is one of my favourite posts. I love, love, love this suit. The braided belt was a little unexpected but so brilliant!…and those socks…with those shoes. This gentleman is obviously innately cool.
Lovely. I hope the GQ has the detail shots as well, you can really see how he pulls everything togeher. I love the whole ensemble but really love the bracelets and the socks, chic, timeless with a slice of wit. Nice. Happy Thanksgiving.
Clearly the best fitting suit that has been featured on this site. It really blows almost everything else away. The shirt and tie are lovely in concert with the suit, but everything else strikes me as a bit much.
It is interesting to contrast this suit with some shown at the various shows on the reps from some of the “sartorial” companies. This one is obviously the real deal, and the others not so much.
The cut of Luca’s suit is absolutely perfect. I would expect nothing less from the son of Mariano Rubinacci. This is the quintessential Neapolitan suit…and Scholte’s English drape cut is quite evident.
Thank you for showing such a beautiful bespoke suit. What men should take away from this is that it all comes down to cut. I love the fabric of the suit, but the cut is everything here.
The belt is not even an issue because, as a gentleman, Luca keeps his coat buttoned at all times, thus concealing it. Likewise the socks are hardly visible, and relate to his shirt quite well. I love that his pocket square has nothing to do with anything else he is wearing. The only thing I dislike are the bracelets, but that’s because I wouldn’t wear them…I dislike things on my wrists.
Great Pic, Sartorialist! I like the cut of the suit even though I prefer flatfront trousers. Also, I’ve been getting more and more into turn-ups – these days they seem to fit narrow trousers perfectly. The bracelets are pure spezzatura – the rule for men is three, I think, but this works well. And brown suede brogues with a blue suit are pretty much the pinnacle of sartorial style to me.
I love it. Dressed up but with a fun twist. The different patterns shouldn’t work but they so do…The men in black suits and white shirts at my office would hate this!- which makes me love it more… a rebellious businessman.
I think he looks like a clown. The suit pattern is bold and quite wonderful but the rest of it is just a mix of colors. Coordinated you say? look again. None of the palettes go together, which would be fine if it made a point but he has just chosen things with bold color for that only reason. The suit is an italian bs number, and this gentleman surely knows very little about balance in a mans suit. look at the lapels. as fs said, he is clearly a man of his own mind and strong personal style – too bad that the personal style is of a very low taste level. 2/10
This can’t be right. I’m sorry don’t like the look. I can’t believe everyone actually likes this whole look. I have already been snubbed on one comment. I hope this blogged isn’t being censored. It would take away from the truthfulness, and credibility.
I like this man’s great style. It’s what makes him unique!
Personally, I love the suit, the shirt, the shoes, the “Rasta-like” bracelet on his wrist, the irreverent humor in the socks; however, I find the tie and belt a bit inelegant. I would have done a nice brown belt and a nicer tie that could have helped to unite the entire look.
Well, I’m never going to be able to dress like that, but the whole look of the outfit on this particular man is just so good. I can feel in my soul the quality of the material of that suit.If I saw this person anywhere I would just stare, stare, stare. Can you lust after clothes?With these, I certainly can!
