I usually scoff at tight waisted jackets, since most of them look to me like bad sausage casing, but in this case, bravo. And bravo for the scarf (ah, that’s not royal blue). I love the whole drape aspect of the photo, including the drape of the fellow’s hair.
The pocket kerchief annoys me, but most of them do.
it’s really incredible how the bright blue scarf really emphasizes the stripes of the suit. these are the kind of subtleties that i really appreciate of italian style. while i think italian aesthetics are generally written off amongst popular culture as sort of gaudy and over the top, this is really a quiet elegance. http://fashionuglybrain.blogspot.com/
Gosh I love this blog, truly my biggest inspiration when it comes to streetphotography! One day I hope to be able taking pics as great as those:D! Well well, I suck at taking pics and I have an ordinary camera but whatever? as long as you love doing what you do thats all that matters, huh? Happy valentines. Ciao Emy
ooohh theres nothing like a great sartorial image to make me feel warm and fuzzy the day after valentines day. first off, i love the scarf and how it adds a playful vibe to an otherwise structured look i also love love LOVE how it matches the blue threads in the suit, highlighting a detail i would have never noticed otherwise the fit of the suit itself is also impeccable and finally, as the cherry on top of a damn good ice cream sundae, the pink pocket scarf transitions this look from winter to spring fantastic find, sartorialist!
His scarf lends a relaxed look to a very structured suit. I think the bright blue looks great against the gray Prince of Wales and makes the blue stripe pop in the suit…you have to have one thing on your outfit that POPS! and a smile to exude confidence. Sure winner. Great fit!
I absolutely love this wardrobe. What a brilliant saturated blue which compliments and strongly brings out the subtle blue lines of the suit. Love the light pink pocket square that seems to match the light tones of the suit. It’s nice to see him use that color instead of one of blue.
Interestingly, from far the blue check in the suit is very subtle. When taken closer the blue really makes an impact, but yet is never busy. Your eye goes directly to the face on the italian man, it is never attracted to the suit unless you think about it… this is how true gentlement put it together.
