OK, FINE, I love this one. Maybe I am just being a hater, but how can someone so young afford such clothes? It always makes me wonder whether it is true that some Italian young men stay at home until they marry. No rent= awesome clothes and accessories? There is nothing I would change from this look.

Beautiful. I just bought a similar looking suit and interestingly picked up an understated black/grey/silver patterned tie with it. I like his. No pocket square! Isn’t it funny how I’ve become so accustomed to them on this site that I REALLY notice their absence. I think one would help here but he’s hardly underdressed without it. They’re still more common on this site than on the street. Love the photo. End of the day? What lies ahead?
Those are my rules too, tho I often don’t bother to button – I’m one of those “hot” people. Learned only recently, tho, that you never unbutton a double-breasted. Seems like it would make for some wrinkles after sitting… don’t have one now, anyway. d.
The buttoned-up when sitting down argument is an interesting one. I personally never button my jackets, except perhaps on an unseasonable breezy day. There is nothing worse than those boxy jackets, all three-buttons buttoned-up, as regularly worn by pundits on ESPN (and ever other sports broadcast). They look like prisoners in their own clothes.
Good looking guy. Nice grooming. He’s handsome. But, the suit looks very average to me. There are no details that say to me that this is anything exceptional. I’d be surprised if this was a top-quality suit.
He seems like the type of guy that looks better with scruff than a clean shaven face…love the face, love the suit…If only the guys in Italy would teach the guys in Oklahoma a little something about fashion…
To the poster who called this suit “tiny,” I would say that this suit is not even close to the trendy emo-rocker tiny suit. Rather this is a slimmer cut suit that looks good on most men (and is close to how a standard non-trendy suit should fit).
Why is it so hard for some people to get away from suits that fit like circus tents. Fuller cut/oversize suits make men look sloppy and fatter or skinnier than they are.
Some people need to learn that when you sit down, unbutton your coat so that it might lay flat and not get wrinkled. He must be self-conscious or just totally unaware he is not wearing jeans. Suits are a great communicator of civility and a very useful tool of the genteel man (or one that hopes to be of manners). They need to be handled the right way, or you communicate you are not genteel.
Soo handsome! I’d say, for sure, he is italian, if I hadn’t read the comments before. But, maybe because he is in Milan, he’s definetely got the italian men’s charm. There’s nothing like it… Nada supera o charme do homem italiano!!
I think it’s the difference between a “Eurpoean Cut” and an US cut. I’d like to see the average joe on the street at least attempt to look this clean cut. I’ve mostly seen rumply, wrinkled suits that are bulked up by rather large- ill fitted shirts underneath that puff out at the bottom.
Word to the guy who said that North American guys wear suits that look like circus tents. I have a friend who actually looks much like this young man does – he’s devastatingly handsome, and fit – and yet he wears such massive, ill-fitting suits. It drives me nuts. Men should be as beautiful as they are!
Lovely! In Milan, Florence, etc, etc meaning, most Italian, and German, cities, (Munich) a tailored, classic look is most complimentary to the surroundings. There is always a trend, a strong, of the moment trend especially in Italy, but for the chic, the best packed wardrobe is classic,tailored. And Right, back to this boy, he’s British, look at that mischievous glint in the eye, the curve in the corner of his pink lips framed by a little manly shadow, yes young man, take advantage of the day, of the decade, youth is your amour, you are bulletproof.
this is almost perfection. the suit is a perfect fit and it has subtle stripes that i didn’t notice until i looked at the bigger picture, which i think mixes with his striped shirt and striped tie really well.
i think the look would be complete if he had a pocket square, but its all about personal taste. right?
that’s why one has to love milan… and yes, latin man do stay at home until they marry, sometimes… it’s cultural. and helps having a great closet, even though THAT kind of clothes doesn’t come from eating at mamma’s, it comes from having a god job (which, btw, are still easier to find at the US…). and has for the style question: if you really worry about “how it should be”, the firts button is ALWAYS buttoned, except for actually working (…) it’s a drag! :)
I’ve always loved Dominic Cooper and followed his career, and this is without a doubt the best photograph I’ve ever seen of him. Absolutely perfect. Soooo halal. And it’s the perfect example of “working it”. That outfit could not be simply transferred to another person – his pose, his build, his effortless confidence – everything he’s doing is responsible for making the suit look so good, rather than the suit simply making him look good.
