    Wow, am I the first commenter? Crazy.

    All I want to say about this is that I aspire to look as chic and put-together as that when I'm eating ice cream. Usually I'm just pretty sure I look fat.

    Also, I am moving to Paris in September and my goal for the year is to cross paths with the Sartorialist. I've mostly been reading and not commenting, but I had to say something. :)

    I don't like this picture. Not because it isn't a great shot – it is. Not because the gentleman in it is poorly dressed – he's dressed superbly. I dislike this picture for the simple reason that it brings back vivid memories of eating Vivoli gelato in Florence by Santa Croce. And now my mouth is watering. Thanks a lot, Sartorialist.

    This picture captures so well the Italian spirit – work is a serious thing ( he is dressed like a serious fellow) but to have a good time -to stop to enjoy life is equally important.

    What an unfailingly good eye Scott. Bravo!

    He clearly cares about his clothes, but not so much that he'll pass up a chance to eat a (potentially drippy) ice cream cone on a beautiful day.

    Read: he's a man with a terrific sense of perspective.

    Just fabulous. This is one of my favorites of yours, ever. He reminds me of my dad, a man who happened to eat ice cream cones much in his last few years. The whimsy of his facial expressions and ice cream cone, combined with his elegance, just makes my day.
