    I love short sleeved cardigans! so far I've only ever had ones which I've cut off the sleeves myself, no one sells these! but they're perfect for summerwear…

    Love it unbuttoned. Buttoned, not so much.

    casual – love the combination of the bright blue with the light tone down green

    I think green and blue can be tricky to wear together (sometimes clashing–as red and purple often do), but the combo at top is very fetching. And the cardigan looks like it has an appealing texture.

    Nice pics anyway! Very nice men!

    not loving the short sleeves, but will sleep on it. love both of their layered bracelets. add a little somethin' somethin' to the look.

    The first picture is amazing! I love the cardigan, the color mix and above all the fact that the belt and the bracelets are both studded. They match so well!

    I cannot believe I am thinking (and about to say this), but hot hot hot! A great way to dress up in the dreadful Milanese heat I suppose.

    I wanna know where to find these in the US… they look so great and comfortable but dressed up

    I really like the first one, I prefer unbuttoned cardigans!
    Both very stylish nonetheless, like we would expect from Italian men ;)

    loving all the men street style posts lately, so fashionable I love it.

    I love the way each of them wears it differently… giving it a totally different feel. I have a question though for you Scott.. or if anyone else can answer this.. the gentleman in the gray cardi has his collar and tie done a particular way – I've seen it done that way before, but what would you call that? Is that a club collar? I absolutely love the way it looks! :)

  33. David Adam Nole

    This is quite the artistic mix of color and style in the garments these individuals have chosen to wear. Personal style is always the best when done right.

  34. all-in-the-silhouette

    The first cardigan would be better without the flimsy little pocket. The second cardi is ill fitting, which really does not work on a brawny guy. Both men are great looking, but the clothes distract rather than compliment.

  35. CW

    June 20, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Looks more logical layered with a t-shirt or other short sleeve shirt than with the long-sleeve shirt with sleeves rolled. This style would look really great with eye-popping colors.

    Majorly digging the short sleeved cardigan on men. I've always found it a bit silly looking on women but these looks are fabulous!

    Ok American men have got to take a wardrobe tip from European men. Very chic and elegant without looking over done. I'm sooo tired of American grunge / slovenly look with the whole pants below the butt… NOT attractive LOL. Take a little pride in your looks… EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL so let it shine!!! ;)

    I love the new bracelet trend for men. It mixes it up and makes simple outfits expressive.

    Both guys look great, but the first one is AMAZING, specially the olive green/ blue combo.

    I'm surprised by how much I like the first look–it's understated, sharp, and summer-weather-friendly.

    Of course, the gent wearing it could wrap himself in a burlap sack and look smashing, so perhaps the fab is all in the presentation…

    Nice! I love cardigans but these are the first I've seen with short sleeves. The search is now on to find one or two for summer!

    Love this. Especially the top one. Sending it over to my husband to see if I can get him interested in a short sleeved cardigan! Although, seeing as how it's already in the upper 90s in Madrid, any kind of cardigan at all seems out of the question, at least for another 3 months.

    No, no, no. I do not like men with short sleeves (with difficulty I can admit t-shirt if you're over 20). I think only Obama is sexy and not vain at the same time wearing short sleeves…

    Surprisingly, this looks great ! I'm not so sure about wearing with rolled up shirt sleeves though, but otherwise I love the look.

    such a stylish bloke,. muted, managed and masculine. And the rounded collar is the perfect punctuation of this subtle style statement.

    love the green and blue combination…I tink the cardy is from Margaret Howell….but you need to be slim and tanned to carry it off. Also his beard needs a trim…

    I love the blue-green combo in the first pic… looks just awesome with the grey pants…

    Love the first picture, who would have thought that shade of green and blue would work together, but he pulls it off well.

    Also love the way that threre is a hint of belt detailing picked up in the the bracelet, without it being to matchy-matchy.

    Above all, I adore studded belt and bracelet on the first photo, but, generally, everything on the both man is in a way beautifully matched.

    I am doing something similar in Belgrade, Serbia, for, but in a little bit diffrent concept,check it out&enjoy!

    All the best!

    do not remember exactly, by i think two years ago I got, very much like these ones, a short-sleeve cardigan from Gap (women's wear). so i guess it made it to men's wear now.

    I'm with Amy – not loving the short sleeves, but will sleep on it. Some dandies may be able to carry it off. I don't really like short sleeved cardies on women, either.

    First fellow looks fab. A short sleeve cardigan is casual, after all.

    But the second fellow with all the silly fuss of the rolled up sleeve? No.

  68. Marcel Da Chump

    June 21, 2011 at 9:47 am

    I'd wear the short-sleeve cardigan over a short-sleeve mock neck t- shirt under the Prada patterned jacket paired with the patterned slacks, shod in Sylvano Lattanzi golf shoes and I'm ready to tee-off.

    Second picture: I love how cleanly the rolled up sleeves and cardigan meet. The collar and tie are also doing it for me right now.

    Love the white, beige and grey combination, and that his clothes are a bit creased; it makes the outfit cool, classy yet carefree and approachable at the same time.

    I understand the look for ladies in summer (too hot for long sleeves, but a tank might be too underdressed without a cardigan)but I am just not feeling it on the men here.
    First guy is gorgeous, but the sweater is just lumpy and gives him weak-looking shoulders. Second guy would be so much more fantastic without the extra skintight layer. Pass

    Love the look of the sleeve/the way the shirt is rolled up in the second look.

    June 21, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    Great collar and tie in the last pick. Perhaps the cardi would work better with tailored summer trousers. The men's short sleeved cardi is a vintage look which I don't remember ever seeing before. There is something rakish about it.
