This photo is perfect. His outfit makes me feel like he owns some magical ice-cream store or that he'll burst out into a broadway song or begin reciting poetry from his book. Classic – loving his red socks bowtie and beard combination especially :)
Such a great pic ,as always.Really fantastic.I absolutely adore the way the shorts ads that touch of freshness for the summer and at same time they are a declaration of his irreverence towards the vigent men's fashion establishment. He nearly blends himself with the surrounding colours, in an almost chamaleonic way to go without being noticed but at same time the sauciness of the socks, the lenght of his pants and the glossy shoes turn him in a statement of elegance, which can not go ignored.
Nice to see a return to cleanliness. Very nice shoes, but the schoolboy shorts and jacket – while nice on their own – do not combine to make a good look. I would like pair of full length pants and jacket in the same color and fabric (seersucker?), but no bow tie. That said, the gentleman still looks like a gentleman and ceryaoinly exudes friendliness, polite manners and approachability.
Thank you! It is so delightful whenever I see someone wearing a Bermuda Suit. I'm not sure how I feel about the low socks. They are getting pretty boring at this point. But the Bermuda Suit is indeed a look that should be brought back!
It will be strange to see a man with this look in Paris but in New York, everything is possible. I like the shoes and red socks. It's elegant but cool. Accessories is always powerful. Simply casual minimalism.
This man looks like he could be a professor, or a scientist with a knack for fashion. I'm not so sure the red socks are working, but it definitely makes for an interesting look. I do, however love the bow tie, and it's not every day you see a man in a shorts suit, so he gets at least ten points for originality.
I have been wearing this look for about 5 years now – I buy summer weight ( seersucker, etc) suits at thrift stores and then simply cut off the pant legs, and then accessories as appropriate for whatever occasion I am dressing for. I call them my 'mini suits'
I love this! I'm usually not a fan of guys wearing shorter shorts but this man wears them perfectly. He looks incredibly animated and I love his bow-tie and glasses. The pop of red and shiny black shoes look great.
He looks like Pee Wee Herman… except this guy's serious about his look. I'm not feeling the shorts, but with long pants, he would look amazing. The beard and glasses are terrific and the shoes are great as well. I just think the look is forcedâ€”just to enough to seem costumey.
Pinstriped, pastel shorts suit… Bowtie… glasses… Brogues and birght red ankle socks…? I am in love with this Milanese maestro. It takes someone with serious style to go for a look this 'out there' and pull it off without looking ridiculous, self-conscious or just plain stupid. This guy doesn't give a damn about trends, season, weather or what anyone else thinks. He is an inspiration to us all. X
ARE YOU ALL SERIOUS! do none of you have your own options? i loved this shot at first, and still do, for the shear fact that it is a great photo. Now the fashion on the other hand is slightly laughable… a different choice of shoes would do this poor fellow a world of good! Dorky isn't always great fashion…
Oh my!!! Her looks absolutely fantastic! Fun, fancy and functional…oh gee, if only more were this bold and took their institutionalised looks just a little left of centre. …now for the safari suit to be resurrected into something slightly hotter than they were in the 70s.
Great and interesting pic! But …. May be if you change him from knees to the floor …. Those shoes are grate but not with this outfit. The shoes and red socks make him look like a clown. If you change the shoes for a nice pair of loafers would make a great diference! Socks with short pants? Never, please!
AS ONE COMMENT SAID "HOW MANY WOMEN WOULD LET THEIR MEN LEAVE HOME LIKE THIS" WELL, PERHAPS HE DOES NOT HAVE A WOMEN OR EVEN LIKE WOMEN, SO HE GET'S TO TRY OUT DIFFERENT LOOKS… IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE TO DRESS LIKE THIS!!!!! I WOULD HAVE WENT FOR A LIGHTER SHOE…
The outfit is cute… but lets be serious.. he may be able to pull the shorts off in Milan… but in Spain it would be a definate " What is he doing?Â¿?Â¿" … errrr NO!! IÂ´m sorry I just donÂ´t like men in suit shorts!!
The button exists on a shirt collar band for a purpose; it was meant to be buttoned ("Never a button without a buttonhole," Coco Chanel). A buttoned collar, however, requires impeccable fit. When a bespoke shirt is buttoned there is nothing more chic.
This is gorgeous! He's a combination of a schoolboy and an office worker. Stylish and sharp. Love the gold book – could it be a moleskine? The red marker off his hand luggage matches his socks, smart thinking.
What a fantastic look. Those glasses – I have literally never seen them before. Same applies for the color contrast socks, the schoolboy suit, the bowtie and the truly original fetish hair plus beard combination.
I appreciate this look, though I don't like it personally, if that makes any sense. Something about the bare legs looks incongruous with the rest of the outfit. The fit of the jacket is perfect. Love the bowtie. And the red shoes!!!
One of the best looks I have seen on here for a long time! Nice to break with convention. shows creativity and imagination. Nice to see he can put an idea together himself – and show a bit of his character!
I remember Yohji Yamamoto and Matsuda doing these shorts suits in the late 80s. (One of them even had a short sleeved jacket!) I thought it looked pretty awkward then, and I'm still not convinced now. To me it's counter-intuitive. I'd probably be more inclined to remove my jacket and roll up the sleeves on a hot day than to mix shorts and a jacket. But I guess it almost works on this dude because of the beard…
Ah, Angelo Flaccavento, the most stylish man on the planet. That said, he IS a fashion journalist (and an Italian one at that) so perhaps he should be. The thing that strikes in photos of him is that he's always alone. Which seems so sad. I'll be your bff Angelo!
I kept scrolling through the comments looking for the name "Thom Browne," but I didn't see it. With all due respect to this very probably lovely man, what about his outfit, other than perhaps the gold notebook, is not straight out of Thom Browne? Honestly, I see absolutely no sense of PERSONAL style, just plenty of THOM BROWNE style.
Oh, an italian Angus Young. I like the suit, bow tie and red socks, but the shoes look two sizes too big on him and the shorts look – well, silly. A few commentors note that he is rocking a school/sunday school vibe. Its' cute on little boys, but otherwise unmanly even with the beard. It's fashion-forward and fun to see, but for me, it also a miss.
So is this the equivalent of getting your shoes ripped off and thrown up onto the powerlines? It looks like somebody jacked this guy and cut off his trouser legs. C’mon, sometimes wearing something just to be seen crosses the line. He’s trying waaay too hard.
