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 ..
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!
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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
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
