So I looked closely – and in terms of colour, everything about this man is in shades! Shades of white and brown (black). Even the hair and the beard! The skin, the buttons. Phenomenal. Nevertheless, I also like the green pocket square. It seems to bring along a certain theme of it's own – circles.
What makes me wonder is whether this person has bought certain types of clothes and accessories as part of his very personal sense of style, and thus the things just come together in his attire in an almost invisible manner. Or, b) he has spent an amount of time picking out exactly these colours and shapes. Is this all accidental or.. "accidental"?
I do not go on pondering about these things all day long, but the pictures make me think about it. Thank you
Dear Scott I love this picture! The man, his attitude, every complement to the outfit… it's great! and, I love your work. I'm really addicted to your blog, I've read it every single day. Big hug for you, greetings from Colombia.
I hate to disagree, but I love the fabric of his jacket and the color of the pocket square, not to mention the jacket buttons. The sunglasses are cool, but they don't make the look as much as the other details for me.
The pocket square is classic, and I am glad he does not muddle this up with a tie. I think something that rings true here is the saying "you can take the cat out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the cat."
Oh god he is immaculate. Everything works here–that jacket fits perfectly–it's shape is divine–the colour is amazing. The bone trousers with casual white shirt is clever –not too much white. The shirt unbuttoned to just the right spot, the belt just the right width for the outfit–his glasses and pocket square lift this outfit to make it cool. His hair and beard are superb and his skin looks healthy. Sexy without being in your face. Ohhh, have I said enough? Maybe too much…..;)
I love that you post a lot of pictures of people who're in Florence. I will be in that wonderful city for three months in fall and I'm so looking forward to that! I like the unbuttoned shirt and the pocket square.
He looks like an adventurer about to open an Egyptian tomb full of treasures. Or at least, like a financier visiting the archaeological expedition that's about to open the Egyptian tomb. I do love making up stories about the Sartorialist's very real characters.
I hope there are young men (20s,30s)that read this blog and the comments above. This is casual, sophisticated elegance (with reference to the casual fridays comments)comfortable, even in the hottest weather,can be very inexpensive,and as recorded above, women LOVE it. Great glasses. Great ring (an oversized wedding ring worn with pride?)Miravihlioso.
Handsome gentleman, because he looks real, wrinkles, scraggly beard and all. Big yes to the shades. Yes to the pocket square, but not in that colour. It says: "I wanted to add something, and this green pocket square is the only thing I found".
Lovely photo, lovely man (could he wash his hair, though, please?), lovely almost perfect clothes…the "after thought" effect of the pocket square could have been remedied, I think, by placing it more casually into the pocket, in line with the rest of the classy, but casual, look. Makes me want to see if his shoes were up to snuff with the rest of the outfit.
One of the best outfits I've ever seen on the blog. Beautiful blazer, and he pairs it perfectly, only enhancing the look. WONDERFUL. I'd like him to teach other men how to dress! In fact, I could even take a hint or two from him I bet.
I love this look. As classic as you can get, and the sunglasses along with the (Looks like green? dotted) pocket scarf are the perfect accessories. He is good looking and very nicely put together. I love tonality in dressing especially in the summertime!
That's a nice jacket. Opening the second and sometimes the third or fourth button is so Italian (and French btw). When I was in Japan and wore a Yukata some (Australian) girl commented on my 'nice body' since that garment gave her a view of my upper torso…so I completely see the point in opening ones shirt like that (apart from the heat).
O sole mio… My gentleman here is relaxed refined and I am needing an aperitivo just thinking about sharing a lovely afternoon. Let's avoid sounding like a personal ad but simply acknowledge the nicely unbuttoned charm when we see it. Baci Tutto!
