On the Street…In Great Shape, Milan



Yes I know Luca @luca_rubinacci looks fabulous (he almost always does!) but can we ,for a moment, focus on the shape of his suit jacket and the perfectly nipped-in waist!


Add to that the elegance of the one-button, peaked lapel and this photo is almost sartorial perfection. Any perceived flaws would be absolute nitpicking.


Well done my friend!

    …the peaked lapel living in the amazingly perfectly paired scale of the herringbone. what synergistic pleasure.

    Utter perfection indeed…but,Scott give of the full-length version of the photograph….curious about the break of the trousers and the footwear!

    Add to that the pocket square peeking out adding just the right dash of color

    All I can say is you’re killing me. This is just not fair. If I were in Florence I’d just jump into the Arno wearing my custom Nikes and $400 hoodie.

      You own a $400 hoodie?

      Its cool you can afford to waste your money, but why?

      Afaik, fleece is $6/yd.

    You don’t think it’s a little tight around the waist? I wouldn’t have mentioned it but…..

      Don’t think so. The slight nip in the waist gives the jacket shape and makes the body look nice. Better than a straight drop, boxy look, especially with the fabric that looks a little heavy. Still plenty of room.

        No, just no. Its a bit tight around the waist and makes the suit look cheap.

      Yes, the pinched-in waist makes a nice line in the side of the jacket, BUT…

      I’m sorry, call me old-fashioned (or make me one), when a button looks like it’s about to pull off and the material is all bunched up around it, that’s not good tailoring.

      I think his guy was trying to make him look taller and broader than he is.

      If the lapels were a touch smaller and button a smidge lower…

    That’s some Old Hollywood style right there. He looks great.

    Sart, imho I agree with you 100 per cent! Luca always slays, and he possesses impeccable taste. This suit must be bespoke. I haven’t seen anything this slick on a rack in quite some time. The patch pockets, peaked lapel, and one-button closure brings to mind the elegant “Thin Man” era suits, updated flawlessly. The insouciant boutonniere is so small and nonchalant it appears as if he doesn’t care if you notice it or not, which is exactly the correct attitude one should have after getting dressed and heading out the door. You’re killing my budget, man! Thanks, Sart. Appreciate you.

    Actually, it is a study in non-standardness… and very well executed. You have a rather formal peak-lapel, one-button suit, but a country tweedy, chunky fabric. Then you have patch pockets on the formal suit, again not standard. But then it all comes together very nicely!

    Perfectly dressed!

    the boutonnière is wonderful–military or other award? And do I see color in the herringbone?

    And he always looks so happy! I love it that he has shaved his hair, he will always look young this way.

    Amazing image, you made my day.

    It’s beautiful. It gets exhausting too.

    SART….this goes beyond perfection. And the brilliance is the herringbone tweed…more often used for a weekend in the country, country gentleman look… this very trad. tweed is used in the most refined manner. His tailor is a genius.

    What’s daring as well is the jacket and pants in tweed…(pants of tweed often a bit scratchy)…perhaps this is cashmere?

    In every aspect…lapel, shoulder, cuff length, pochette and his grooming.
    A lesson for every man and woman..thank you…

    fantastic shot…thank you.

      Tweed trousers are typically lined with silk or nylon, or they would indeed be scratchy.

    My only complaint is that I could not find the suit on the Rubinacci website.

    I will have to find which NY tailor carries the fabric. Nipped waist is out as mine lost its nip 30 years ago.

    This suit is interesting. Perfectly paired. The patch pockets, and one button closure brings the elegant , the slight nip in the waist gives the jacket shape and makes the body look nice and he looks thinner. The fabric t looks a little heavy. Nice suit, nice outfit. More interesting stuff here…

    I have a tweed suit like that (not quite as lovely, but very nice) made by an Italian tailor in Canada… It is wonderfully comfortable, not scratchy at all. And yes, the pants are likely lined. I imagine that this one is bespoke because of both the unconventional choices others mention (patch pockets, etc.), but also details like the sleeve cuffs, which look like they have functioning buttons. I love the steep ‘V’ gesture of the lapels, and the way the peaks are so close to the shoulder line. Also the contrast between the soft shoulder and the steep V is really marvellous, casual and mobile.

    If the density of that tweed correlates with the scale of the herringbone pattern, that must be one toasty warm suit.

    There are so many details which set the outfit off. First, the heringbone pattern is fantastic. Second, the single button jacket – always a welcome change and works perfectly with the more relaxed styling with the patch pockets. Finally, the accessories – great tie. check. lapel pin. check. smile. check.

    Looking great. Perfect paired.

    The lapels are not vero good at all. Too big, in my opinion.

    I admire Luca’s look very much as he has chosen a heavy cloth for cold weather wear, as mentioned above the waist has been nipped in slightly too much as a bespoke jacket should fit perfectly even after a hearty meal.
