mostly just a very nice, almost startlingly eye-catching photo … no mere snapshot here … I like the way you're filling the frame more with the image, here and with the lady's picture just below … and there's also a close-in, surrealistic quality in your deep close-up that's at once scary and thrilling… are you using a new camera, too?? Of course the guy's macho sexy chic, but, firstly, I was taken aback by the knit tie in summer worn together with a linen suit; also I think he needs a third color … His haircut, however, is just fantastic!!
I met Simone on my last visit to Florence. He is a wonderful character and always beautifully dressed. I think his shop is called 'Andrews Ties' and is always full of beautifully crafted Italina clothes. When I mentioned to him that I'd seen him photographed, he was quite bashful. He is very welcoming and I'd encourage all fans of this blog who enjoy the the Italian cut and cloth to visit his shop. If you visit on the weekend you may also be served by his brother, a larger than life Lawyer, who is also great value.
Oh, these men's clothes rules you all cite, they are so boring! Do you go around issuing infringements and are you as stylish as this man? He looks fantastic. His tie is tied as casually as a scarf, perfect with a crumple-pending linen suit on a hot day. The shirt and the suit are a perfect warm-cool mix and the red stripe of the tie is just enough punch. Bravo. Love it. Get thee all to his shop.
I am charmed with Scott this photo, this one is the style that I would like to see in the blog. I am charmed with Simon's tie and well that it(he,she) combines with the suit. What looks like to me more cool is the cigar.
I like the overall elegant look of the gentleman here, but I'm really not feeling the love for his tie… A little "sprezzatura" is one thing, but wearing the thin end of the tie longer than the wide end takes it a bit too far IMHO.
OOOH…..The rumpled wheaty suit, with the perfect amount of yellow in it, together with the blue striped shirt and the oxblood striped knitted tie……..this is just too satisfying for words. Perfect and perfectly Italian. I'm an Italophile…..
This is one of my favourite images so far.. it's such a dark photo to me, despite the light and colour. Intense and beautiful. And that scowl and concentration are really quite sexy. Really great shot.
the tie. you object to the tie? let me tell you something . guys like this take risk, they go into fashion areas you sit and read about in GQ in the comfort of your living room, so that three years later you will have the courage to risk a knit tie. THE TIE! YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TIE!
well, i could give a f… about the length of the tie. this man looks so amazing. and the photo is beautiful. if i was walking down to the beach and saw this… i think i would be dumb founded and stopped dead in my tracks. this is the stuff of which i dream.
This suit has the kind of understated elegance that when done correctly is very striking. I love the look of a man in a suit, and this one is exceptionally tailored and, along with the cigar, conveys a sort of "man about town" image. I also love the knit tie. He actually reminds me of those " most interesting man in the world" commercials :)
…it is called a working cuff, no-way this fella stepping out with a missing button. Killer picture! not feeling the shirt/tie mix but taking the pic to my tailor to rip that suit off! Work jacket vibe, love it!
this one makes me think of "on the road" by jack kerouac. while reading it, i imagined these types of colors, warm and sunny, and also that kind of mystery. what is he thinking about? you're very talented, and i'm always admirative of your capacity to be here to catch the instant. the "it' as kerouac said..
My father used to wear crocheted ties like that, in fact , he had a special one, in grey, used with his white linen suits.
He was a lowyer, and one of my best rememberings about him , was the moment IÂ´ve got into his room , each morning, just to see him get his self all dressed up to work
he was a handsome man, white, almost blond, beautiful…
