What a juxtoposition! Bookish frames, scruffy hair; military jacket, white chinos; teal blue helmet and french blue conservative oxford shirt; gold necklace, black leather necklace;…if only we could see his shoes! I wouldn't be surprised if he was wearing one black military boot and one brown penny loafer. ;) What I love the most…his look works!
This is the way men with style and attitude age in Italy. Being over 40 doesn't mean you have to be boring looking…also it doesn't mean you should wear teenager t-shirts and shorts!!! There is a balance. This gent is cool and it is not trying too hard to tell the world what he is. Remember, be yourself and dress accordingly!
I love the jacket and the shirt with the white contrast of his chinos. I just picked up a nice blue shirt and a military style jacket myself but I didn't really think of combining the two until this shot. Great look!
Its a real cool look, the cig even mathces his chinos and tan! The jacket is a great length, but 'caus it is so well fitted it must be quite restricting with the long sleeve of his shirt underneath. Not ideal for scooting around.
Why I like this look so much – precisely the combination of military green with light blue – that I recently bought myself (before I saw the photo) a very nice military style utility jacket from J-Crew. As for shoes, he's probably wearing desert boots, Clarke's or something similar
The jacket is too small. This man should get the next larger size. Moreover, there is plenty of Italian military surplus on the market. There is no need to go with German surplus. – At least it wasn't East German surplus.
That is a 70s/80s west German army jacket. They had a tailored cut and are made of moleskin. They came in dark olive but faded fast. One can find many copies of it but none matches the slim cut of the original. I don't like to wear it personally because I HAD TO wear it 15 months while learning bad things.
This guy is definitely got the cool quotient. Good to see a cool, masculine, older guy. Something in his face reminds me of Dustin Hoffman, crossed with Steve McQuee. Style is more than trendy young things, fashion types, and older "gentlemen" in suits.
I'm glad to see a look I wear a lot validified by this guy. (I don't do the helmet, cig, or bracelet, though–that's how I roll!) I do wear very similar frames though, and I'm at least as old as this guy, maybe older. Like somebody above me says, growing old does not have to mean boring.
If you said white jeans , army jacket and a deep tan -I would normally say trying too hard, on this guy the blue shirt pulls it together and is definitely the sort of guy I would look twice at and be thinking he’s hot
Unfortunately here in Brazil most guys feel to insecure to dare when it comes to clotinhg or fashion. I really would like to see more bold men around here, so i wouldnÂ´t have to feel like i am an alien on the street.
