This is the kind of man whose name should always be preceded with a Mr. But, even though he seems classical, he hits you with those pants, which are a wonderful twist. I love them. The shorter length, regardless of whether its in or out, just looks sooo good.
Mmmmm, thanks Sart (yes, sometimes you specialize in pin-ups)! I love the hair– long, but beautifully cut, in great condition. Nothing shaggy about him. And windowpane checks! my fave. Great personal style all around.
The most important aspect of the trouser is not that there is no break or that the cuff is 2″ it is the taper of the leg combined with the other elements. If you notice the Italian man who wears no break is also comfortable wearing a trouser with a taper most American men would shy away from because it is a big difference from the boring straight leg trouser. If you were to pair the big cuff with no break on a straight leg trouser it does not look the same as with the slimmer fit tapered trouser.
Some of you speak of the “italian cuff.” The reason it is a bit “thicker” these days is due to the fact that the pants are worn shorter. In a few years when the pants need lengthening and the flood style is gone one will be able to drop them again and wear them. Function.
The very masculine cut of his clothing contrasted with the softer line of his haircut, again contrasted with his angled sideburns make for a gorgeous package. Love the windowpane jacket/trousers with the striped shirt.
you know i saw it on the catwalk but I wasn’t sure, but it’s gonna work isn’t it? if he looks good (and he does) the leg length will rise – didn’t this happen during the WW2.. rationing of material led to raised trouser length… neuvo sobriety… does that mean we’ll start to paint patterns on our legs instead of tights? – http://www.essentialtea.co.uk
