I literally had a bet with Garance that I could find a good way for a guy to wear leopard. I think this photo proves I won!
I love the sliver of a leopard print quilted vest that Domenico (on the left) wore today in Florence. It’s just enough to break up the seriousness of a monochrome outfit but not enough to scream, “I’m wearing leopard!”
I like his leopard pop but I love his “man” bag. I’ve been in multiple discussions with friend about this lately – he’s accumulating more stuff (tablet, reading glasses, invisalign) but has nothing to throw it into that doesn’t scream old – brief case – or young – back pack. Is a pouch the right way to go?
Yes, but what happens to that leopard when the coat comes off? :) I kinda have to side with Garance on this one, BUT everything else (hair, shoes and the beautiful print on that bag) overrides the leopard.
I’m sure it screams “I’m wearing leopard” when he takes off his jacket. But, I like it regardless.
Street fashion in the winter really only catches pieces of a person’s overall outfit. Hence, I’m ready for Summer!
funny how times change. i wore ankle length pants to visit my family over the holidays. it sparked a heated monologue from my six foot six inch grand father ant six foot four inch cousin…everybody’s tall whatever, the short pants make them think of pee wee herman…..but i like it if it’s done well.
I’m afraid I’m with Garance on this, but nice try for both you and your subject. Everything else about these two guys is just sharp. Even the leopard print adds dissonance, an edge of discomfort for me, which I do admire even if I don’t like it as such. Very stylish gentleman and supremely interesting cool looks.
I think you win that bet. I think he pulls it off. I agree with everyone else that there are a few other elements in his look that are a wee bit more tricky, but still, that man knows what he’s doing and he’s doing it on purpose. I like that.
I would like to know how the man on the left “terminate” for lack of a better term his somewhat subdued Mohawk. This somewhat reminds me of an older fashion we had in south/central america, but he takes it to a rather tasteful level and I would like to see in what we he carries it through.
Married, middle age italian men, avant-guard in their style, daring, fearless, this photo makes me think of the “man in the skirt”. I love to be surprised, to question the choice of an outfit.
Either I like it or not (and I do, especially the shoes !), this photo is opened to debates.
the bottom line about this photos is Dmenico’s style… the shoes, the somewhat short
and narrow pants, the coats, the somewhat king size austeriy pochette, now catching on…
i hav to admit he missed 100% rating on his hairstyle, not so Piti Uomo, sorry….
I love it, in my opinion he brought something cold and masculine to the leopard’s pattern. This fits perfectly with his outfit, for sure black fits dith everything but straight allure, and his color hair, it’s like a clash, between oppositions. A nano clash in the details.
