    The color matching color of the cardigan and the cellphone is super cool – and it's real luck that Scott caught him speaking on the phone.

    And I love seeing men with such female bags! :-)

    The cardigan + cell phone matching is whimsical, but the coat feels forced to me. No one can do colors like Luca can!

    How unusual. He's lovely, I say that in the best possible way. The colors are bright, fresh, and different. But the fit of his pants and sweater look a little Pee-Wee. Still, he's delicious.

    Matching phone and cardigan is a bit much, but I kind of like it! Not sure about the bag – looks like he's holding it for a friend.

    I'd like to understand this:

    So, when people say, "i love how the cell case coordinates with the such and such…."

    …is that a comment purely referencing the aesthetics of the image/outfit? Do you admire a person who is so super-conscious of 'fashion'/styling on a per-outfit basis? Moreover, would you want a boyfriend/husband/partner who was so invested in putting together 'looks?'

    I have more questions about the whole 'murse' thing, but they'll have to wait. Although i've been looking for a bag to carry cameras and such in, i just have to draw a line in front of anything that looks like Lindsay Lohan might also be sporting.

    Do you think he changes his cellphone cover to match his sweater everyday?

    @ CK Dexter

    I don't think it's about being super conscious of what colors you're wearing every day. I also don't think he changes his cell phone covers to coordinate. I know that when I'm in a phase, I tend to unconsciously buy similarly colored items that happen to adorably match. It's just coincidence.

    As far as wanting this quality in a boyfriend, sure! Not to an extreme, obviously, but it's nice when someone takes time to invest in his/her look.

    Yellow for cardigan and cellphone.Does he change his phone when he uses other clothes?

    I like this brave colors and patterns, however I do not perceive "very colorful / bright" people as "well dressed"… But it depends. Sometimes – the effects of that kind of combination are so spectacular, so outstanding – that it impress a lot anyway.
    BUT I DO REALLY HAVE PROBLEM WITH FEMININE- A – ALIKE BAGS worn / use by man… I see this trend, but I dont like it… I HATE IT!!!

    It's actually a fairly traditionally cut coat and a fairly traditional, albeit enlarged, plaid. It's just that these are not found together on this same men's coat often.

    I wonder what the reaction must have been when Woolrich or another manufacturer put a subdued plaid on a coat sometime in the 18th or 19th century.

    Lastly, why did he steal his girlfriend's tote bag? He should be carrying something less feminine.

    Anyone remember Mr.Humphrey's from Are You Being Served?(circa 1970's BBC)..this may well be his Italian love child. Personally I'm still on the fence about that coat but either it way it does make one stop and stare.

    I don't have a problem with anything in this photo except the cell phone. That yellow cardigan should mysteriously find its way into my closet any day now. And this might be the first time I don't disapprove at all of a guy with a "man bag." He's obviously got some seriously important stuff to tote around. Look at the concentration in his face! I sorta COULD do without the trench, too. But that's just me.

    I love the contrasts but the man bag is so yesterday. The bright yellow of his cardigan and the screaming green of his blackberry holder are going to be big this summer season. Watch out! But not in a 1980s kinda retro way but more in a 'spicing it up'-kinda way.
