I saw many individuals in this uniform while studying in Florence. This photograph shows the panache that Italians can give any look. He looks amazing. I love the contrast between the bright orange and the black background.
He makes me think of an orange crush version of the green Otis elevator men (and women) – something about the boxy-ness of the suit, the attendant tools and (in the case of the Otis, the straps that have a bit of BDSM to them.) It all says “power” and his self-assured stance simply reiterates it
This is great. (Clearly the expression, and photo, as noted).
But why hasn’t anyone actually commented about the clothes? They are inspiring.
The industrial fabric, the details like “x” stitches around the sleeves are cool (we’ve seen this in luxer updates. Imagine that coat cut slim in a fine grey wool. Interesting).
More interesting, though, is that color. The high-key, specifically industrial colors were seen in Duckie Brown and other this last season. I’ll warrant we’ll be seeing great scarves/sweaters/socks (pants for the daring or foolish) in these kinds of colors in the months to come.
it’s kind of humorous that ppl are saying that he’s pulling off this “look” well. it’s his uniform, and he does look well in it, but very clearly, this is not a fashion statement. it’s sort of reminds me of that episode in sex and the city when charlotte finds that actor admiring a fire extinguisher mounted on a wall
I like the shameless utility of the jacket and how it totally seems part of who this guy is, and the strength of his character just seems to make up for any crudeness the clothes might do. like ‘hes the man’
