This man, Cesare I assume his name is, has done many interesting and artie things. First, adding sense of humour to a very formal outfit with that electric blue shirt and that velvet (?) coat. Of course, those smile and those round great fun glasses do help to that. Second, a great mix of blues greys and black. Third, the wine coloured glove touch and the way he holds that scarf, it looks like some sort of roman toga. Magnifico!
but theres two things that strike me in this photo. firstly his feet! they are somewhat handsome and positioned at a very charismatic, confident angle. secondly his hands and the way they are holding the gloves ever so delicately.
This is soo underrated. What a beautiful, classic Italian sartorialist outfit, with a twist. That shirt is lovely, honestly want to go get one. Did anyone notice the shoes? Beautiful and if you look closely at the suit, you will see that it’s not actaully too small, it’s just the way he’s standing. Otherwise, it’s a stunning piece of craft in its own right. Well done Sir.
You know, it’s not the most striking outfit and the pulling jacket button certainly draws the eye to his midsection. Nonetheless, this image’s parts – the shoes, the particular manner with which he holds his gloves, his expression – all come together and creates a truly interesting picture. Form me, the parts are far more intriguing than the whole.
Obviously he just had a nice, small Italian lunch ;-) (the jacket’s really a bit too tight in the belly region…) But I wouldn’t say the pants are much too long (they look quite unusual long only for American eyes as they always want to show their socks. Not in Europe, buddies!) The pinstripes contrast very well with the tie. Surely he wears an outfit like this every day. It fits his (optical) personality perfect.
His jacket doesn’t look small. Looks like it should if a guy has his hands on his hips. And his pants look perfect to me. I have seen some wear them really short to show off socks, but actually this looks better. Not like they are at all gathered.
