Side note: Is there any way that you could make these pictures bigger? I would like to see the small details in the pocket square, tie, jacket, shirt, or whatever it might be. Just wanted to throw that out there. Big fan of your work though. I check it daily and it inspires what I wear. Thanks for all the great work.
Superb. Striking, how he emphasizes his small stature rather than using tricks to appear larger. It showcases a great deal of pride in oneself to love what you are and celebrate it. And obviously, I LOVE THAT BAG.
i love this. and that man is very good looking. i love all the slim fitting clothes with the large (gorgeous) bag. but i almost think that it is a shade too big. it makes him look like an elf. especially with the huge door behind him!!
Not usually a fan of the big bag but this is great! His pose is perfect too – of course – he is Italian. Leaving aside practical trifles such as how he even manages to walk in those jeans let alone get them on, sit down etc, i think this is cool image.
Fashion with a touch of the Medieval! Well, the background contributes but so does the bag and the hair. Maybe ’60′s meets Medieval. Another great pairing of subject and background. I like the jacket and scarf and the plaid shirt, even how much cuff is showing because that bit of pattern is key to the outfit.
Sublime androgyny. A little precious, though – I think it’s the bent arm with the gladstone. I do like the mix of the clothes, which are quite ordinary on their own, but work well together. The bag belongs in a pantomime (he’s got his wicked stepmother in there)- it dwarfs him and completely and just looks silly…..
Gorgeous overall! I love his look, and I love the bag, but I do think that a slightly scaled-down version of the bag would suit him better. He looks like he could pull a Mary Poppins and start dragging giant clocks and desks out of the bag, or maybe like he beds down in it at night.
I love the silhouette this guy has managed create – quite apart from the way he has managed to mix grey, black, navy and brown into one co-ordinating outfit. It really helps the outfit become more than a sum of its parts.
This guy looks incredible! His bag is magnificent, his boots (or shoes – I can’t tell, so I’m assuming boots) are perfect, and the background with. The giant door makes this a portrait more than just a documentation of what he is wearing.
The proportions are entirely whimsical (slender frame in comparison to boots and fab bag) and the intended effect is delightful, as one can only imagine what he is carrying inside that luxurious leather! Also, the diversity of texture is positively divine.
Loving the pants with the jacket; it adds a bit of sass to the class. Not sure how I feel about the bag, but it matches perfectly with the doors in the background. I agree that he reminds me of Dylan a bit – I think it’s the hair.
Take the bag away and he has an amazing outfit. I disagree that his pants are too skinny. The man is skinny, let him show it. I love the scarf, the blazer and the shirt. The bag is amazing but it looks like it is carrying him.
love all the pieces on their own, but here…the laying on top skews the proportions and makes his legs look too skinny. And I agree, the bag is too large and overwhelms him. Perhaps if it were smaller by 25%?
As a very thin man myself, I’d like to interject. Some of us LIKE being thin and LIKE wearing slim-fitting clothes (especially jeans and pants) to show that off! I hate seeing a slim guy running around wearing clothes that are two sizes too big – it makes him look like a four-year-old who got into his dad’s closet.
I think the outfit is perfection. Although I would scale down the bag if I were him, kudos to him for trying. Love the scarves and the boots.
All this talk about the bag being too big is silliness. The whole outfit, would seem silly without the bag in my opinion. It’s the contrasts that make this picture and the the size of the man to the size of this bag is all part of the charm. He has managed illustrative proportions while managing to still seem real(but in a very wavering sense, like at any moment those doors might open up to a different world….or not and either way I’m still intrigued).
dont like the lower part at all..dunno. jeans are too tight, the bag is way too big (it screams “hey this guy is a stylish person”) and the boots are too common. whereas the upper part is very nicely put together. i like the pocketsquare a lot in that sportsjacket. and the bracelets are kinda nice.
ok his outfit looks great, everything, his scarf specially, the trousers, the length and the shoes. BUT, in my opinion the huge bag makes it all far too obvious, a bit attention seeking. the bag is great but i dont know if u get my point… a bit too much?
IÂ´ve got no problem with the bag, But the superslim jeans is not fun anymore. ItÂ´s been 5 years of constant wearing of jeans as an extra skin here in sweden and even though IÂ´m not a fan of the Baggy pants, this picture would be almost perfect wĂth a bit slim, perhaps glenchecked pair of trousers.
The jacket’s lovely. But those jeans are a no-no. He looks like a wading bird going shopping with his mummy’s bag. The bag is just plain stupid. I’m all for making a statement, but the statement this bag makes is not one I’d want to be seen making.
Wow! thats like ultra skinny!..I hope for his sake his jeans are made out of a softer denim lol. But all jokes aside, the gentleman here pulled this off very well, “chique” indeed. He owns this look its his, very well done!! If I had his physic (aside from the skintight jeans..maybe a lil less skinny), I’d replicate his outfit from head to toe. Kudos sir!
I like his clothes, and the bag, but the shoes and the jeans don’t really go. He just looks scary and even though his legs are very thin, they are too thin in my oppinion, and therefore do not look good in those jeans.
I love the colors and textures. That scarf is perfect. And of course the bag is amazing. however, the bag owns the man, not the other way around. Also I wish he had more shoulder support to give him a V line and make him look larger. I don’t always mind skinny jeans, but these give him chicken legs.
Totally agree with Andreas; us Scandinavians should get a life and not wear pants that even the most non-existing calves bulge through. Very unflattering and they make his very nice shoes look like clown’s shoes.
Would do the entire outfit sans the overly tight jeans. C’mon dude.
Imagine with khaki, high waist, wide-leg pants with cuffed hems. Replace purple velvet scarf with dark brown wool, add a leather beret same color as bag, and an Alfa-Romeo (in Alfa red). Oh and some driving glasses and gloves.
Nah, it’s not the bag, nor the skinny jeans, it’s the fact that he is posing with his knees overstretched (like a ballet dancer) that is just ungood, and makes this man imho look downright silly. I would have bought it if he would have stood more upright, without the sloughy shoulders (like a ballet dancer), because I find his dress sense perfectly acceptable. Even with the rather unitalian unruly hair ;-)
I love all the pieces, but all together it seems like it might be one trend too many. To help the proportion of the outfit, perhaps he should have either downsized the bag, uncuffed the jeans or even taken off the scarf. As another remarked above, a smile would have helped.
That said, the look does seem to grow on me the more I look at it, though maybe I’m just being seduced by that remarkable bag…
Oh c’mon…… This guy has some great garments that fit him perfectly……..from the waist up !!!!! If the guy feels the need to draw attention to himself with the comedy jeans then more fool him. With a proper pair of trousers/jeans (Maybe that’s what he’s got in the bag) he would look superb. Skin tight jeans on men….. No!!!!!!
Very interesting image. He has a great face and great style and although I’d personally prefer slightly looser jeans, he knows what he’s doing and it’s really a matter of taste.
I think the thing with the bag is, it’s too big to be carried that way. It would be fine carried in the hand, or placed on the ground for the shot. With the bag held in the crook of his arm he looks a little defensive. But I salute photographer and subject.
Besides the fact that he could hide inside his own bag, this is a beautiful outfit, the bag, the shoes, the jacket are wonderful! Not a fan of the slim jeans, but they fit well here, and what a fantastic background!!!
How ever did he get his feet all the way through those pant legs and out the bottom? One decent fart and he’ll blow his boots right off. Not my cuppa tea at all.
I am afraid to think about how much I would pay for a bag like that. It blurs the lines between accessory, luggage and sculpture. If he were a foot taller and weighed another 100 pounds it would suit him so much better.
I hate the bag with his…everything else. I can fully appreciate how well styled he is without the bag,very tight jeans and all, but I am just so put off by this huge, slouchy bag with nothing else to offset it. it doesn’t feel cohesive.
Of course, maybe this is just the evolution of the little boy running away from home?
I like the scarf …. well that’s about everything that I like about this photo. Bag is too big for him (said plenty of times before), jeans make too bold of a combination (in my mind) but do somehow mix in well, though I am not a great fan of skinnies. Jacket is nice but I don’t like three button ones. Ohh and I like the pocket square! There you go, a second thing that i like about this photo!
OMG, can’t believe I saw this bag in one of sartorialist’s photos, I think I have the answer for those who want to know where that bag was from, coz I just bought a small version of this bag at Florence a month ago, the brand is called ‘the bridge’ it’s named after one of Florence bridges ‘Ponte Pelletteria’, it’s such a magical piece of art, LOVE it! & I love the big one in this photo, I actually saw the same one in the shop, just too dam havey :(
