I hope I dont have to eat my words, but I like a smooth line from shoulder to sleeve. I know the shoulder construction indicates that is has been done by hand. The suit looks great on him. I kind of agree with 4:24 on shoes but yet I like them with this outfit, especially as brogue-type shoes are classics and you are certain to get your money’s worth. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Scott, There is an exhibition of the history of street photography on at Tate Modern in London at the moment. I was wandering around it today and thought you would be fascinated by it given your current pursuits. Everything from Brassai at night in Paris to documentary evidence from New York, 1880 to 1970.
I know you don’t get to London much, but it may well tour. And it’s on until the end of August.
Particularly loving the men.style.com postings at the moment. If you ever make a book of your favourite photos, can I ask that you do a separate mens and womens one? If you did I’d buy one for me and several as presents.
Love LOVE the suit (and the shoes). This is the perfect color blue, and it is becoming more readily utilized in clothing I have seen. It’s obviously not a “business suit blue”, but to me, this begins to challenge the traditional color palette menswear is accustomed to and changes it just enough.
Scott- is that a roped shoulder I see, or just the way he was holding himself?
Great shade of blue. I like the high collar and the bold stripes on the shirt. Looks like there’s too much roping at the jacket’s shoulders. Maybe it is just the way he is standing, but the shoulders don’t look right to me. It’s particularly jarring because Italian suits are famous for softer shoulders, and this seems to be quite the opposite. I like the brown shoes with the blue suit, but not the black socks.
i actually love this outfit. this man looks like the imaginary boyfriend i always picture in my head when someone asks to describe a good looking guy. and i know that some are bothered by the short pant leg and brown shoes, but i feel that that is what makes this outfit interesting. the contrast of the shoes draw attention to his person, much like michael jackson and his want for white socks to highlight his feet while dancing in music videos. this outfit is spot on, i adore it. love, beck
I would never have thought of electric blue as a good color for a man’s suit, but it works on this guy at least. He looks perfectly comfortable and unself-conscious in it (could an American pull this off?). You picked the perfectly colored wall as a background too–the light yellow goes well with the blue. He could use that as a shirt color for this suit next time he wears it.
Love the color and fit of the suit, especially the slim, high water, wide cuff pants. The shoulder tailoring looks a little sloppy, unusual for an Italian. The shoes could be a little darker and a little slimmer. But so what? If I looked like Nacho Figueras’ kid brother, I’d be grinning too!
I’m totally feeling the ease and effortless flow of Mr. Ricci’s style: He looks absolutely put together and yet never contrived (unlike a certain individual in a similar blue silhouette with the croc manbag…). Everything from his hairstyle to his stance gives such an air of genuine relaxed elegance.
Wow….I think he looks terrible (At least in the context of this site).
I hate the length of the pants as well as the tapering (which is fairly pronounced given that this gentlemen does not appear to be a whispy model). I also dont like the shoulders – and I dont care what they say about the construction of the suit.
Ahhhhhhh…I am drooling over this man. All I can do is look at the trouser cuffs. And his hair. And his warm brown eyes. Italian men… ;) Yes, I want to move to Florence. Whenever I’m there I sneak pictures of the men. They collect in deliriously well-dressed groups outside shops and on the street during lunch. They really do! It’s like a mecca for sartorialist man-watching.
as i know mr Ricci as my tailor, i can tell this suit is completely handmade using vitage fabrics of highest quality, the shoulder is without any padding and fit is inspired on old moviestars suit… http://www.sciamat.com will tell you more
