Sooooo gorgeous. I have to agree with M Ruth’s comment on a previous post and say that this shot is made all the more gorgeous by the omission of exposed ankles. Every detail of this man’s (visible) ensemble is spectacular. I can only hope the look carried down to a nice straight trouser that broke just at the shoe. Sorry all you cropped-pant-wearing fellas!
Thanks for your comment about short pants. I’ve commented on here many times. Short pants are not a “look” nor are they “fashion”; they are just pants that are TOO SHORT! Why not sleeves too short, or I’ll just start rolling my sweaters up to just under my pecs… NOT!
This man is always so brimming with life and his colour choices reflect that. My eye is always charmed, never disappointed. I think he photographs well because he seems to dress every morning with the express intention of bringing joy to those who see him!
Usually turtlenecks on men bug the hell out of me, but this photo doesn’t bother me at all. In fact, I think it’s doing him all sorts of favors. Maybe it’s the different shades of brown and the texture of the jacket and sweater that flow together with his beard? And his eyes really pop, too. I’m sure I’ll be studying this photo on and off for a while.
I personally think Luca is typically overdone, and rarely in a fashionable way, although props on being daring. This rather “conservative” look (by his standards) is the most stylish I’ve ever seen him.
The coat is fantastic, no question. The turtleneck is great, and the two work together splendidly. The hat is a fine accent. But does the pocket square really work? (I think not.) Does he need one at all? (Open-ended question.)
All I can think of is
1. stunning blue eyes, stunning in general, and
2. he’s really channeling that Gavroche/Les Miserables vibe. Like I imagined it when I read the book, I have not and will not see the musical.
All in all, very nice and playful without overdoing it like so many other guys here do.
