      I don’t know who he is, but I remember even the first picture I saw of him that he was something special. He has such a great eye for wonderful, if sometimes insane clothing. He always looks awesome. Plus I like bald guys. It looks so aerodynamic. And I HATE it when guys try to not be bald when they really are. Confidence is sexy! Being fake is not.

        With his manly build and self-confidence he would probably exude the same causal elegance if he were dressed in a burlap potato sack! :)

    The top row of pics is great, especially the first one!

    Been thinking about taking a crop of shirts to my tailor to get the hems shortened for summer. I’m just afraid I won’t be able to then tuck them and have them stay in!

    He is so hot!!!! I love his shorts with the chic print. Love his jodhpurs/khakis/yoga pants! He is so intriguing, so elegant, so sexy. Guys please take note and really try to emulate this look.

    I am so tired of guys in cheap flip flops, torn t-shirts and baseball caps.

    The way he wears that blue coat….

    My friend went on a date with a Parisian man (in Paris), and she got cold. As she proceeded to slip her arms in the sleeves the man said

    “non,non- drape them over your shoulders honey”

    she never dated him again.

    As George Cortina in his own style, Carlo Alberto Pregnolato has his own style, for me they have their sartorial language at the top notch of what is necessary to get to be a person before to be a dressed man.

    • Stephanie F.

      May 8, 2013 at 5:37 pm

      Indeed! Also, I dressed my husband in another of Mr. P’s outfits that is not shown here, a red western style shirt & printed blue belt. He looked hot, too!

  39. westcoasttiger

    May 8, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    The 2nd, 3rd, and 6th photos don’t lend towards anything special. His physique tends to carry the day for him and most likely anything he wears. I wonder if the Italians eat better, have good genes, or it’s his smoking that keeps his weight down.

  40. Haruki

    May 8, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    With a very manly man like this I also want to know his smell more than just the look of his clothing. We need more than just a photos in these cases.

    Love his style…so Milanese. I bet he orders a cappuccio! I have been trying to get my husband to copy his style every time you post him. It is so Italian to cover your neck even in warm weather- culpa d’aria, you know. It must have been Aug in the 2nd picture. I love Italian fashion with all its idiosyncrasies, subtleties and aplomb!

  49. Michael Scott

    May 8, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Perfect. He chooses classic elements in interesting fabrics or beautiful prints or fanciful cuts and combines them perfectly. A white shirt can be so boring but he knows it keeps the rest of the look crisp and simplifies it. Just great.

  74. MB@FabricUiPhoneApp

    I like how Carlo seems seems to have a variety of sandals and flats. And he’s open to prints…sewers who make garments like men who are willing to wear prints….these men who would lots of distinctive cargo pants and shirts in the wardrobe. The kind that elicits, “Where did you get that???”

  75. michael

    May 9, 2013 at 11:24 am

    He always looks so “Europeon”, in the lounge lizard sense of the word.

    Prefer classic American style with a cleaner look and less calculated “sprezzatura”.

    In a word: pretentious.

    • The Sartorialist

      May 9, 2013 at 11:30 am


      so you’re saying you don’t like the way he looks because he doesn’t look like you.

      In a word: pretentious

      • Patricia

        May 9, 2013 at 5:22 pm

        I think that the problem with this dialogue is that you are both throwing around terms that are offensive (lounge lizard and pretentious). If you got rid of all the hurtful language, I think an interesting conversation about how context affects how we dress and think about how others dress could develop. Being “so” European in Europe is seen as one thing. Being “so” European in America is seen as another. Context matters. But isn’t this what fashion is all about? The intersection between our public and private lives?

        • Martine

          May 14, 2013 at 10:33 pm

          Not really. Content doesn’t matter in the least in this case. Some people like to put in effort some people don’t. Europeans don’t own a calculated look, and Americans don’t own a more laid back look. The proof however is in the pudding. Wether you are one extreme or the other or somewhere in between it either works or it does not. What this guy is doing works and wether he takes an hour to get it together, or puts it on and goes in five minutes matters not one bit.
          However I really like Scott(or whoever from the Sartorialist) sticking up for a guy they know. I kind of thought the lounge lizard tag was funny too.

    • Valeria

      May 9, 2013 at 5:45 pm

      What does “sprezzatura” mean, exactly? And in which language?

      • SevanName*

        It’s italian for “studied nonchalance.”

  77. michael

    May 9, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    no: i am saying that his personal style is a tad calculated, as is made more obvious by presenting a collection of photos which, taken as a group, lead me to think that the gentleman is trying awfully hard to appear as if he is not trying too hard.

    indeed, i have days when i look like an unmade bed as well. just not everyday, and not with such purposeful intent. and rarely in public.

    • Michael R

      May 9, 2013 at 3:08 pm

      I agree. Call if fashion….call it his style….call it a statement.

    • Patricia

      May 10, 2013 at 10:50 am

      I think that Michael captures exactly what Americans often think about European dress when he says that Carlo Alberto’s dress is calculated and that he is trying too hard. Of course, this works the other way, too. Europeans often think that Americans look like they haven’t tried hard enough. I find everything about how Europeans interact with each other to be much more formal than the more laid back American approach. This greater degree of formality, which in Europe is a means of showing respect, is suspect in America. It is seen as fake. “What’s this guy trying to prove?” seems to be what Americans wonder.

  78. Niia

    May 9, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    This man makes a lot of things that usually are not sexy, very sexy: shorts, baldness, smoking (although could do without that!), denim cutoffs, cargo pants, sandals. Hot, hot, hot – and love all the little touches like the shirt half tucked in, the cargo pants pulled up. A true original. Love every look.
