    Mr. Rubinacci is truly a sartorial gentleman. On top of his impeccable style, he has a gorgeous smile and most piercing eyes.

    I love the look on this handsome man but even more the ease with which he is wearing it. Not to mention that smile. Woof–enough to melt the heart. It makes me think–yet again–of your "grace" post, my all-time Sartorialist favorite. Thank you so much for that–I was equally touched by the amazing commentary from this fantastic community.

    Please stay warm! Here in the South of France, the mighty Mistral winds are blowing but that is nothing compared to the bone chilling gusts of NYC…

    Mr. Rubinacci is quite obviously one of your favorite male models for portraits!

    I do personally prefer less boyish / flamboyant male style. However HE LOOOKS ALWAYS GREAT!!! He truly / really has "italian sophistication" just in his guts. It's a gift and not many people are capable to copy that neatly…

    Loving the shoes, the rumpled hat, the elbow patches and those excellent socks. Obviously the man himself is… wow… but the colors here are magnificent and his ease is as beautiful as his eyes.

    Okay, nothing is as beautiful as his eyes. But close!

    Mr. Rubinacci certainly has a talent for mixing unusual colors and patterns. Everything here is exquisite, and of course it fits him well. A point I make here is that at least one item in your outfit should reflect a bit of light, and I do not see that here, even though he is wearing silver jewelry. I am also unsure about the scarf being the same color (even if different tone) as his shirt/sweater. It feels a little redundant, oh but to have his clothes budget!!! Jorge from WPB

    I love everything: the plaid jacket, the suede boots, the hat…
    I think one of the most important details is accessories: the pocket square and the bracelets complete the outfit.

    I think this is one of my favourite photos so far. Makes me want to leave school NOW and travel around the world with my camera meeting wonderful people like this (actually I want to do that anyway but apparently exams are important…)

    It is not only that he is very good looking but also that he, and his style, seem so full of personality and charisma.

    You have done it again Scott. Just when I thought I couldn't face another day of white skies and snow covered "everything" you give us this utterly delightful photograph. He is so bright, so sunny, so comfortable in his own skin! I love the unabashed used of color, it all goes so well together. He is always way out there with color in all your photos, I am in love. And of course, the hat is to die for. He makes me want to create!

    Love the colors, layers, textures. Esp the socks and desert boots. The sweater/jacket combo is luscious. One thing lately that makes me go "ick" is elbow patches, whether trendy or traditional. Not sure why, too stereotyped professorial? Maybe if the patches were scuffed, showing a reason to exist?

    the first post is ridiculous. it's like saying 'I absolutely love insane people. They remind me of… Van Gogh.' Ridiculous and you should not have allowed it. I don't absolutely love drug addicts because they remind me of River Phoenix. I thought style is also about intelligence not only about 'oh, he's awesome…' You're an intelligent man and you'll understand my point of view. I am not an anti-smoking freak, but I so despised the pseudo-cultural-wannabe intention of the first post, sorry for being open about this.

      I do concur.
      I can’t help but revolt at the abundance of images featuring smoking, here and elsewhere. It DOES perpetuate the idea that smoking = glamour, because a blog such as ths is full of the gorgeous and glamorous. I don’t want any of them to suffer cancer. If that makes me an ‘anti-smoking freak’ I guess i’ll live with it.

    First, what a relief to hear someone write that they like smoking people (first comment), unlike the typical moralizing comments about this personal choice (not a smoker, myself, but I respect other people's autonomy). And the reference to Sartre…yes! ("Hell is other people at breakfast" – a man after my own heart). As for Mr. Rubinacci…if he would only agree to marry me and pick out my clothes…I could be happy forever. :)

    You have not only captured the amazing composition of his outfit, but seem to have captured his spirit as well. He is, of course, easy on the eyes. But what shines through is the genuine smile – something that can't be faked.

    I'm loving the peek of socks too. I've been working on my man for some time now to adopt a colorful sock! I do think I've got him sold on desert boots though…

    Wow. This man is incredible. First of all, it takes so much courage to clash that many patterns and colors together and walk out with them in daylight. Second, you can tell that he understood the palette of the jacket and did not allow one item he is wearing to stray from it.

    And as everyone else has noted he is ridiculously handsome so that never hurts. Beautiful shot.

    Everything works but the smokes and the multiple bracelets. Especially like what appears to be a larger than average pant cuff and the aqua/dark brown argyle socks. I have a similar hat.

    BTW, I would appreciate it (and perhaps your other readers would as well) if you posted what manufacturers made the pieces in the pictures. Perhaps you could do it as a final post to close comments on a photo.

    I think he overdoes it with the pastels (In this and earlier photos) and I wonder if this is a concerted effort to highlight his eyes, if so, too vain.

    I had no time to read all the other comments. Probably I repeat the majority: he looks unbelievable.
    The berry colors fit his eyes! Hmmm, I dream about eating a big bowl of raspberry with him :-)))

    Have you already managed to shot him without hat? oh, yes, in 2008.
    With hat he looks younger.

    GORGEOUS!!!! When he gets it right, he really gets it right. The combinations of luscious colors and patterns are spot on and perfect with his skin tone and hair color. Exquisite, the guy looks like a jewel.

    I would kill for the hat!

    If it's not going to spoil the romance of his mastery of colour, would it be possible to interview him sometime in the near future to find out what is the science of being/dressing like Luca?

    Looking at the number of responses, I think there would be more than a few of us out there interested in his answers. I also think there's definitely a sponsorship deal in the making from Pantone/Dulux…it's time they have an ambassador of colour.
