    Rarely is denim on denim done well. The pairing is excellent.

      alan – thank you for that query–
      i asked myself and still do ,what is the idea behind matching blue – black suits with brown shoes .
      but pinstripes with suede shoes ..i say no.
      in this case here its ok ,sportive ..

    Only an Italian can wear those garments together (a denim shirt, a jeans, a blue coat and a knit tie) and still look classy… The cuffed jeans is also interesting of course…

    I believe he’s wearing a silk knit tie…I just purchased one myself and like how the silk knits have a sheen as opposed to the wool and cotton knits.
    They also are heavier and drape nicely.

    Jeans and a western style denim shirt: even the Italian gentleman can appreciate and mix classic American style into his repertoire.

    Is that seriously a tie?

    If it is, I can only think of the word “cool”.

    The tie is just so interesting I’ve never seen one like that before! I love the fact that it’s a knit, making the tie very intricate and delicate. This new zoom feature on the blog really makes everything a thousand times more enjoyable!

    I love a knit tie! It reminds me of my dad in the ’80s!

    I adore his denim shirt, it has such a beautiful almost turquoise shade and the mother of pearl buttons all make it look quite feminine, lovely! As a woman I’d adore a similar one for myself

    In regard to the question about what brand of loafers he is wearing, they appear to be Alden Snuff Suede Loafers which can be found here:

    Well Hello Nicola!

    As always you look smashing. And your outfit is pretty smart too;).

    Love the mix. Killa’ jean cuffs, elegant suede (?) loafers, washed denim shirt/pearl snaps/buttons (?)….cuffs left unsnapped..just the right touch. An always elegant , navy blazer and that rust vintage style tie! neat new tweaks, but you never look like you’re trying to hard. These days that’s quite a compliment!

    And thanks again Scott for bringing the Italians back. I suppose they never left, but it felt like it!

    Have fun!

    I realize this dude gets a lot of blogplay because he’s part of the ‘Florentine jetset’ that’s peaking right now, but there’s nothing special about this outfit for me… The jeans hang, the belt looks catalogue, and even the shoulder/arm construction doesn’t look overly fitted and flattering. He can do better I’m sure.

    Couldn’t find another place to provide this feedback on your new site design. I like the larger pictures but I also don’t like them because I cannot see the whole of them on my monitor. As a result, I don’t get the full impact of your framing, etc.

    Perhaps you can make the photos smaller and provide a larger version via a separate screen that only contains the photo?

    In any case, this is not a big deal. Just an idea so I can quickly see what you intended when you took the photo.

    Good stuff!

    his name is Valentino Ricci (works at Sciamat). Love his shirts- works well. The turn-ups too! effortless (not actually).

    Personally I think this outfit is 50 % trendy : great blazer and denim shirt and scarf.. and 50 % old-fashioned : really don’t like the cut of the jeans and the shoes

    It’s a great outfit in my opinion, a mix of classic and trendy, of dressing up and down… and the looser jeans is just so refreshing after seeing so many tight jeans…

    Love the denim shirt n blazer composition !

    I almost bought this tie. It was on sale at a Brooks Brothers Outlet for like 10 bucks. I thought it was a cool color and make, but it seemed too wide for a knit tie. I didn’t think I could wear it with anything. I’m regretting that now. I should have bought it!!!

  45. Dicky Carter

    Does that type of tie that he’s wearing have a special name, does anyone know?

    So handsome. It is the polish that makes it look like more that denim. Most American men would look like they just came in off the farm in this but he looks so gorgeous.

    Lovely suit, shirt and tie, but…. what’s with the guy’s attitude??? Seems to be angry or something…

    Love the nonchalant tie! Peachy,

    love it – i wore my blue silk knit tie the other day for the first time with some jeans. been a long time since i had that many compliments on my tie.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    I adore his expressions. He always looks so animated, it makes him very handsome to me. And great jeans and loafers, but then its pretty obvious this guy always looks elegant.

    I adore the shoes.. so classic!

  52. Thomas

    August 27, 2011 at 1:13 am

    Lovely overall! In my opinion, perfection could have been created with an adjustment to the belt and shoes as it would’ve added a bit more pizzaz. With such beautiful shoes and cuffed jeans, a colourful sock, or non at all would have really finished the look.

    I have to say that Mr. Valentino Ricci is always doing things that you would not normally see. I appreciate the soft shoulder jackets that he makes with the puffed sleeve head. The lapels on his coat are just something you do not always see. Almost 4 inches wide. He is not wearing a black belt. Its actually the same color as his brown suede loafers. But the best part of his outfit is his pants. Well balanced break. Nice 2.5 inch cuff maybe even 3. I give the man credit for not only making his own clothes but wearing them so well. Its called a knit tie by the way.

    I love this. Italian Renaissance prince from the neck up, and 21st-century guy from the neck down. Great contrast!

  62. Mark Williams

    August 29, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Nice outfit, I, like others, think the knit tie is tops but the cuffs in the jeans say “look at me!” too much. Everyone knows that dungarees or jeans look better with a cuff from the inside out as opposed to the reverse. The tailor must have been held for ransom to pull this off.

    Great fall look. This guy definitely works in marketing. I might consider a jacket and tie with denim when the weather gets cooler. Can’t remember last time I saw someone in a knit tie. Are they back? After this they probably will be

  65. Thomas

    August 29, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    I’ve done this look for years (maybe 35?) with slight variations- Winter a velvet jacket, vintage french cuffed western shirt, jeans and a great pair of shoes or lizard skin cowboy boots- Summer- dark blue silk jacket ,pale blue shirt of some sort and again great shoes-the trick is that everything has to be the best quality and tailored within an inch of its life

    interesting… i am really keen to see a whole picture meaning top to bottom. so that i can study the color combination. please post…

    also i could see a pocket square… what color is it… may be cream…

  68. wylie

    August 31, 2011 at 12:28 am

    what this guy has done with his jeans is almost sacrilegious, some nicer jeans or even some chinos to match the colour of his pocket square would set this combo off.

    The shoes are Jhon Lobb, I think. Amazing Outfit.

    The only reason this light blue denim shirt pairs well is that it barely looks like denim… put a crisp light blue shirt in place of this atrocity and it works.

    The hair and the jeans are a great juxtaposition of the jacket, tie, serious expression, posture and clean shave. It’s the air that freshens from the window.
