Hot town, summer in the city, front of my neck gettin' dirt and gritty.
But seriously, I must tip my hand here in favor of less precious, less posed shots. I like the elements in this ensemble, but I've had enough of leather shoes with no socks + rolled trousers that are just a bit too snug for a hot day. Always enjoy the blog and most shots are well worth the ensuing conversation.
Dear Sartorialist, I got your book yesterday from Amazon! Before anything else, I prepared the ambience to â€śconsumeâ€ť it: a glass of a good Argentinean Malbec, a nice and comfortable seat outside in my garden, and then my fingers slowly caressed every single page, stopping to admire each photoâ€¦ thank you for sharing your world view!
I love the rolled up pants legs, and much prefer the barefoot look to the white socks. The slicked back hair with the reddish hues is quite interesting, as is his beard. I prefer the background in the second photo than in the first.
I like the first example. A cardigan can truly substitute for a jacket in casual circumstances; a certain store I like makes one in a wool/cotton blend. I am waiting for the right price!!!
For the second outfit, I am glad to see a few band collars here and there. I have to agree with previous comments, that, if the day is that hot, lose the jacket before you lose the socks. Jorge from WPB
I feel badly to be the voice of dissent, but I just don't like the rolled trousers, the lack of socks, the hair… just not appealing to me. Still, I will give him props for having his own sense of style.
I love the way his hair has become another accessory – the shine and the colour are a perfect match for his shoes. While I love both the top and bottom halves as separate elements, for me the look is not balanced. All the bulk is above the waist. He's a bit like a cathedral on stilts. But those pants: my, they're gorgeous.
I'm having a hard time buying this silhouette, the pants are being worn lowish and are not tight but definitely trim, with the semi-constructed shoulder it all looks ungainly to me. And if you are gonna rock the ankles how about some nice leather sandals, or God forbid a classy sneaker. Nice beard though, (beards are smooth! :)
I really like it, but then again I feel like I've seen this same style a million times, you know? Definitely classy, definitely sexy and refined, but then again it's nothing….new. Great photos, but feel like I've seen it before.
He looks good as usual, but hardly dressed for a hot summers day, more appropriate for a spring day. I am certain he must have been hot in that sweater and jacket and clamoring to find an air conditioned space to get into.
Another Italian over fitted, over tailored jacket. Yep,it might be the trend, but the jacket makes his head look four larger than the average. The rolled up pants are, well, cool. But the proportion of the outfit? On the other hand, the outfit is sort of a conceptual statement about proportion and it's impact on the visual.
why can't anyone imagine he's wearing peds (or he is suffering for fashion) WHO CARES?? Who looks at this photo and thinks of his comfort – he looks perfect and socks would ruin the casual elegance. Bravo!
Very nice shoes…which really save the day…which started with the wrong (sockless) foot…but.. What is it with the sans socks thing..? Should we wait 5 or more years before we could say, what were they thinking??!! xavier
A' la recherche du temps perdu….the beard, the stance, the style. He reminds me of Marcel Proust. All he needs to complete the look (it's so uncanny that I wonder whether it's done on purpose) is a delicious madeleine from Combray.
