I usually don't comment on things I don't like, but now I have to. I like the outfit a lot, but the head doesn't fit.
I saw this picture coming onto the screen from down up, and thought that the carrier would have been older. I think he seems too young for the clothes.
Hard to explain, but that's just how I felt when I saw this. On the other hand, many young men in Italy wear stylish clothes from young age, the ones that I would think men in their 40s wear.. to me that's a bit boring.
He is good-looking and the outfit too, but not together imho..:)
Sometimes I put my watch on like that as one of my blouses tight sleeves won't let it go on underneath. But then I always end up taking it off before I leave the house as it seems a bit weird and is uncomfortable.
A couple people have commented on the age of the man as not fitting with the style of the clothes, but I think that is exactly what I like. He is rocking a style usually seen on men a generation or two older than him. It's a kind of a subtle boundary transgression. A boundary I didn't know people held so dear. Does he create his own world? Is it filled with ideas so different from all of ours? Does he study the past? Have a great connection with his grandfather? Is he a TIME TRAVELLER???!!
But how thought-provoking, beautiful, and emotional. I love him.
@Maija. What ages his outfit is the fit of his double breasted jacket. A sure fire way to add years to an otherwise classic ensemble is to have it ill fitting and slack where it needs not to be. If his jacket where a 40 Regular, and then tailored to sit close on but not cinch his waist, then his appearance would seem more youthful with a nod to the old school.
Oh, and I think a more classic styled tortoise shell eyewear would have properly framed his face and finished off the overall look of the outfit. BUT this is a first I've seen a ticket pocket that is also a patch pocket. Fresh! Are his pants navy or purple? Either way it looks great in overall concept but moderate in execution.
I don't like the jacket with the pants. The sunglasses – ugh. The watch worn over the shirt sleeve – yuck. The hair – need I say more? He looks like he's pretending to look summery, but that would be quite hot to wear. I preferred the man in all white – now he looked like he was dressed for hot weather. This guy is just trying.
Easy on the fit, people, he's presumably a real person, not a model. The shoulders fit perfectly, particularly for a double-breasted jacket. Any narrower and it would look like an unstructured lab coat. As for the rest of the fit, with his hands in his pockets it's really impossible to see how the jacket naturally hangs on him. If you want to see real ill-fitting clothes, come to the West Coast! Anyway, it's all about the linen with dark accents as a seasonal transition, IMO, and it's beautiful.
that jacket is very nice, but a little too large in the body and too long. and the agnelli – watch over the cuff – is trying a little too hard, isn't it? i mean, as a whole look, he's great – handsome dude, etc, but since the jacket is so light, it needs to fit better.
The deal with the sunglasses – ever have a pair of Persols? That's the way that frame fits, tilted on the face and big. Couldn't be more italian (well, maybe Prada or Zenga, ok) couldn't be more classic italian. With Persols you take the good with the bad.
gaudy. sorry but I really think this is the kind of guy we Italian women (or rather Milanese with some taste) tend to leave aside. everything is fake in this guy. and the sunglasses, puh-leeease, there are some newer and more tasteful styles out there that might fit him better. I leave it to other girls. the shoot is great though. Sorry Scott. wand
Something about the knotting of the tie and the bunched shirt below the collar makes him look a bit choked. Also I think the pocket square should be a pale colour, not chalk white, and should be more playfully deployed. I'm really not loving this watch-on-sleeve caprice, and the patch ticket-pocket.
Perhaps this outfit codes differently in Italy, but to me he looks like the type of ickily-dissolute frat boy I made a point of staying far away from. (The jacket could be nice in a different context, though.)
