God, he is gorgeous sans clothes. Yeah he's got style, but whoa, what a face. This must be after a runway show or shoot. Guys who are young and handsome don't dress like that and just sit around. En Fuego!
Now THAT'S how you wear a jacket and button down shirt in the summer. Sorry, but I thought the jacket with shorts in an earlier post was way too costume-y and uptight looking. This, on the other hand…fabulous!
I get your point Scott on the hipster irony with regards to hats. As a hat lover myself, I believe that one should dress to suit the hat. It isn't simply a matter of throwing on a panama/fedora/flat-cap/breton-cap/boater/bowler while wearing sneakers and a hoodie. Call me conservative (at 28 years old) but I do think that hats deserve some respect instead of being treated as just another option to add to one's postmodern mix-bag of accessories.
super rad outfit he's rocking. I don't usually like hats because great hair trumps great hat all day long, but he wears it well. Awesome navy edged pocket sq and good shirt collar. What were his shoes? I'll bet whatever it was, he was sockless.
i have ceased wearing hats just for this reason. you walk down the street here in seattle and every frat boy, thug, hipster, etc seems to think that by putting a fedora, or driving cap with their cargos or tight jeans makes the look. the hat makes him look like he is trying too hard. the suit and everything about how he is wearing it is wonderful. love it.
Classy, but at the same time very contemporary. As you, Scott, said, i love that a hat can be worn without irony. This guy pulls it, and i really wish that i would have the same confidence. Because this style is awesome.
All this hipster rage is obnoxious. Hipsters are like any other awful subculture, clinging on to their trends and running them into overkill. Get over the fact that their trends cross over the line into yours and ignore the fact they don't wear it as well–their use of an object isn't going to tarnish yours.
That said, he looks fabulous. I take my cues on how to dress my boyfriend from your photos, streamlining the costumed look of some, and making adjustments for personality & whatev.
This may be the best-looking young man I've ever seen on this site. Everything about his clothing, accessories & grooming suggests a respect for tradition balanced by 21st-century ease. There are so many charming, quirky details here: he's obviously a man with great personal style. French? Italian? Brazilian? American? The fact that his nationality isn't obvious is yet another thing to admire…
I agree with the comment on hat etiquette returning along with the hat. Why don't men know to take them off indoors? At the theater, at dinner, in an elevator? This boy, at least, looks like he knows what he's doing.
This took my breath away. I just can't fault a thing, man, attitude or outfit. As a committed hat-wearer, I applaud, as a member of a household that does not contain a single suit, I feel strangely engaged. All the relaxed insouciance of a young Alain Delon. He's got to be an actor or a model.
The people that do not like this guy's "hipster" look should go hug a missile and cry for global warming or something like that. Something that really matters. This guy is clean and showing quite an amount of respect in his look. People and their tags just murder me. How about freaking just "individual" or "cool" (does not give a damn about mob-driven conformity or rules).
Pre-schoolers and kindergartners should wear Panamas to learn to think on their own and be "cool", not be restrained and part of the "herd."
BRAVISSIMO!!! I agree with the first anonymous, Florence never looked so good when I lived there either! I think they are improving and forgetting the "the-more-it-shines-the-better" period, when they wore a lot of golden/silver items… but it's curious how men there have always been much more stylist than women, I guess it's because of the innate elegance some italian men have…
Actually, hats were hugely popular (functional?) until the 1950's. They serve a purpose, a straw type hat for the summer to help keep the sun away and felt in the winter to, well, keep you head warm and protect from the elements. And, yes, there is such a thing as hat ettiquet. At the dinner table? How about taking the hat off once you go inside. Again, a hat has a function, indoors what would be the function other than an accessory? Oh yeah, the guy looks great!! But, maybe TOO perfect?? He's maxed out, it ain't leisure wear.
there was a mention that this fellow has a movie star look. Unfortunately, that would have to be someone from a bygone era. Most celebs in a relative age bracket don't seem to look this sincerely put together or comfortable in their clothes as this young man.

I believe I am what you would call a hipster. I'm 16 and I own a fedora hat. I shop at Urban Outfitters, Topman; I got the hat while 15 and I have recently abandoned it for fear of being called a hipster. When I bought the hat, I thought "I really like this hat, I like the way it looks, and I like how I look wearing it, I like how it goes with what I'm wearing, I like the options it may give," etc. Not so much, "oh, look I'm wearing an old-school hat." Does that exempt me from hipster-ness?
i just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say it is absolutely fabulous. as i worked my way backwards from 2009 it struck me that fashion and style are two different things. give me style any day. thank you, david
I'm going to hazard a guess and say the suit is made by Boglioli. It has the shoulder of the K model and has very high armholes and a very slim silhouette. Also the sleeve buttons already come functional in the K model. Sart would you happen to know for sure and confirm either way?
I think we need to get past these rules of menswear that plague every man who wants to explore how he dresses. Otherwise we'd be locked in the rigid etiquette of whenever menswear in its present form was developed – 1800s? Don't damn this fantastic man for playfully unbuttoning his suit sleeve! Don't file him under try-hard for wearing a hat to be stylish and shaded! Just be glad he exists to bring us all a little pleasure.
I'm glad to say I know this very versatile young man in question; this picture portrays hem really how he is. All the time. Clothing and style are one of his many(!) passions. Currently heâ€™s seriously contemplating about opening a shop for bespoke suits in The Hague (the Netherlands).
As for his current profession; no, he is not a model nor is he Italian. Heâ€™s just a gentleman of leisure who is successful at everything he lays his hands on. That is, what he truly believes in.
By the way, I do believe that this hat is not called a Fedora but a Trilby. Being a hat with a shorter brim angled down at the front and turned up at the back. Whilst a Fedora has a much wider brim which is more level. (For more information: http://www.lockhatters.co.uk/historyhats.aspx)
This fine young man looks like he knows how to dress ( with the exception for the show-off of the working button-holes) hence I believe that given the brown belt, brown shoes will follow. sans socks of course. taking the whole image into consideration this is just the style I like to dress myself so two thumbs up.
