    His coat and bag are RIDICULOUS!!!! What a dope a$$ old man. Especially while walking the streets of Milan. So glam. that town is….hell all of Italy. I remember just being in the airport in Rome and being utterly intrigued and in awe by all of the beauty walking around in that place…and that was JUST the airport.

    this is perfection, i love everything including the orange gloves. If my father lived in europe, this is exactly how he would dress for the colder weather, perhaps not the bag though.

    Italians, like other Europeans are not humble about their academic achievements. Holders of doctorate degrees (Ph.Ds) regularly use the title "Dottore". This old gent, therefore, might not be an M.D. at all. (Some Italian physicians use "Dr.", rather than "Dott.", in order to clarify the situation, but there is no general rule.)

    lovely to see the tradition reinstated of having your own initials on your bags, instead of giving free advertising to the bag's producers [sorry LV, C etc.!]

    What is in the water in Italy that produces such chic? I'm an American expat who lives in Paris, and I LOVE France, but really, no one touches the Italians. They are in a class by themselves.

    As I wrote that the red bag dominated a woman in an earlier photo, so this bag dominates this gent. However, given his profession, that is understandable. If the woman would have been a physician, that would have been a great physician's bag.

    Young, old, it doesn't matter. The Europeans have got what it takes. Look at this man! He created his look and how he presents it to the world decades ago. He never doubts his fashion choices for a moment. The thought, "What should I wear today" never enters his mind. And yes, he is sexy too! He has that "Come Hither" look.

    This photo is gorgeous and this man is fantastic. His monogrammed bag adds such a great pop to his dark well fit coat.

    He is so perfectly framed by the lines of the buildings around him. You have such an eye, very fun to watch. Thanks!

    The orange gloves are probably a pair of Hermes gloves! Hence why he's wearing the orange colour! I say the cape is a classic Burberry as well!
