love the separates on the gentleman on the right. And I love the gentleman’s coat on the left, and his soft gray colors are very nice with the brown shoes. I notice his top buckle on shoe is undone also.
Uomo on the right: “son, your pants are too short, your cuffs are too big and you forgot to do one of your monk straps. Uomo on the left: “sir, your pants are too long, your gussetted pockets look awkward and your color combinations are overly flamboyant.” Yet they both look great. A wonderful juxtaposition of different approaches to men’s style. Instructive and elegant. Thanks Sart.
The fabric on the bespoke db coat and the Italian-cuffed trousers on the left are superbly coordinated. Two blues on tie and scarf show a subdued and cool approach to winter. Gloves in chest pocket – flair.
The sport coat and pocket square, orange vest(I’m assuming it is a vest) and the blue check shirt lets it pop. Great details on both coats, I especially like the pockets on the sport coat and the tabs at the waist. Is that a gentleman’s hunting sport coat?
And the photo was taken at just the right time – great narrative in their expressions!
i love the whole italiano look for the gentleman on the left… the tie knot and the shoes! i love everything about the other gentlemans sportcoat! the pocket, the waist tabs and even the overlaps near the shoulder blades!
Well captured pic. I am not currently into the larger armholes, fuller cut jackets. Both men are well put together for their tastes. Buckle the shoe please. This looks like the “Hip Hop undone Addidas laces look for the Bespoke set”…I don’t like…
What a fantastic photo – both so decked out in their completely different but completely individual styles – Each so interested in each other (or are they – both turned ever so slightly towards you) LOVE it.
i love this people that put themselves together carefully, aware of the details. their age gives them confidence, they feel confortable with themselves, they know their bodies well and what suits them and are not afraid anymore, why would they be? fashion is only that, fashion, yet i see a sense of ritual in the way they dress, a sense of order older than them… the man on the right totally steals my gaze, he is such a gentleman.
This is all about Town Italian vs. Country English. Clinton, you’ve nailed this concept with your little script. One could write a book about men’s fashion related to this picture. As an experiment, I’d like each of them to switch their outfits exactly, and watch each of them tailor and tweak it in their own way. I know the Italian would still end up looking Italian and the Brit would still make it British. And that is, I think, the point of style entirely. Not what, but how. Well, maybe a little what…
I know they are both Italian…Does that jacket on the right come with a Beretta 20 gauge (???? Those pockets were meant to hold shells!) I hunt pheasant with a Beretta and I NEVER EVER EVER look that good at 4:30 in the morning…
WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT???? Two men who have such wonderful, wonderful, wonderful personal styles simply cannot be talking about the price of espresso. I’d give a monkey to know what they’re talking about. On their own each is wonderful, but this photo putting them together is just exquisite.
There is something special with how the Italians wear their Rolexes. It often looks so darn natural and “devil may care” but very stylish. My impression is that they often wear them quite loose. In any other country wearing a Rolex looks to “overstated” and flashy. Just my 2 cents.
I know that one can see it everywhere now in Milan and elsewhere but I’m yet to be warmed to the idea of so short pants(gentleman left)! It shows too much of the shoe no matter how stylish the shoes(light brown?!) could be. It has always been critical to me( as to many great dressers) that the pants should at least cover the top of the shoe. It’s not about dictats but a question of elegant and stylish DROP. Furthermore, I don’t see the pants on the gentleman on the right are right either, for they, on the other hand, are a notch too long! They’re not having that one nice single break on the top of the shoe which again gives an elegant drop. The fact that the cuffs are way too flimsy is not helping, of course..
The beauty of this photo is not solely confined to their vestments, but how naturally they comport them and how their dress expresses is just an extension of who they are. We don’t notice the men’s clothes in this photo, we notice the men. That is true fashion.
