      Shame about the agist comment. I expected better here, on a site where so many of the truly stylish are well over 50.

      I hate to tell you, but if you are very lucky you will get older too, and if you are very, very lucky you will look that good!

      Southcast, Do you really have no idea how ignorant your comment sounds?

    He’s a dapper fellow, but that poor button is under a lot of stress.

      Came here for the same comment – Time to let out the sides just a bit

      Agree – see way too much of that Thom Browne influence. Simply incorrect tailoring.

      Suits today are really tight.

    Gianpaolo or Giampaolo??? Just asking

    • S.Castellano

      August 31, 2016 at 6:02 am

      Giampaolo Alliata from Al bazar in Milano.From the italian sartorial sense,perfectly made and worn.Together with Lino Ieluzzi,they design,wear and sell iconic suits.

    Yes, it’s stylish but I don’t like the way everything pulls… as if it were just a bit too tight. This is usually true of all these suits. Radiates discomfort.

    What an elegant man! He makes carrying not one, but two laptop-sized bags look like a breeze.

    He’s been eating too much pasta lately. That’s all. When he stops with the pasta, the suit will fit like a dream.

    It’s a great suit – but why so tight? That button is screaming in agony.

    It’s so unfair that a lot of men do look better when they age. Only a few women do… :)

    • joanne

      August 31, 2016 at 2:41 pm

      Not so! There are so many lovely older women around, if one only bothers to acknowledge them. Just recently I read an article on how women at a certain age become invisible to men – and to other women! I couldn’t quite believe the second part, but sadly, your comment seems to confirm it.

    • Stephanie

      September 4, 2016 at 10:26 pm

      This is one of the silliest comments I have ever read. If you look around you will see that many older women outshine older men by far, as they often take a greater interest in grooming. It’s the North American culture that has us brainwashed into believing that older men become like fine wine and women start to rot. You’d think we would be past this sort of thing…

    Beautiful Blues but the jacket is too tight. Men struggle with the drop and the lapel. It ain’t just me!

    To southcast: your comment is simply inappropriate.
    To carole: You can find him in Al Bazaar store in Milano. He works there.
    To Debra: Sounds like you are American. No, he simply likes fitted clothes.
    To the rest: He is a nice chap. I had a chat with him last November when I popped in their store.

      Yes, but the suit ISN’T fitted – well not fitting him anyway.

    He either needs to have a word with his tailor or lose a few kilos or, easiest of all, not button up the jacket. Too tight, otherwise a very stylish dresser. I remember seeing a documentary on English tailors and they all said the same, never button up your jacket no matter what the style unless you want to look like a newsreader. At a push one button, but in this case none would look great.

      I see there’s been much discussion over whether or not the suit is too tight, given how the button looks. Out of curiosity, I took a look at the Al Bazar site: Lino Ieluzzi himself, who is the store’s founder and is photographed in a variety of poses, wears his suits with the same fit. Therefore, I can only imagine that either 1) the suits he produces are all similarly cut, or 2) both men have a preference for this fit. I’m a woman who can do very little with a needle and thread, expect make a lopsided hem, mend socks so that they look unfortunately lumpy and sew on a button with some decency: in my opinion, it’s a question of personal preference. Overall the suit fits very well, and the man featured in this shot looks great.

    He looks very fit so I think the tightness around his midsection is due to an unexpected extra layer…a money belt perhaps? I do like this photo, his hair and blue buttons makes it for me…

    The button on double-breasted suits always looks like it’s holding on for dear life. Is that an intentional fit thing?

    He looks wonderful. Kind of like Mr Rorke from Fantasy Island.

    This site always seems to have no problem showing wonderfully stylish older men, but barely any women over the ripe old age of 40. We are out there and amazing!
