I love living in Japan, because often I’m the first to see this later night posts since it’s late afternoon/ evening for me when they happen. Back to the subject at hand, I do appreciate this photo and must note that it’s reminiscent of the afore shown and much debated Vogue Editor picture. A touch of color in the right place is just so appealing. Good-eye to the wearer and good-eye to the photographer.
The scarf and the way he wears it: gorgeous! It is quite a coincidence that the blue matches with the car in the right and the windows in the background. Iâ€™m genuinely curious, is this done on purpose or is it that the angel of photography is always with you? Provably it is a mix of both things togetherâ€¦
Bit underwhelmed by this one. Though the scarf is interesting, somehow it doesn’t pop (terrible word that) as much as one wants it to or as much as the blue socks and blue shirts did in a few of the previous shots.
Perfect Style! Fantastic cashmere coat….I saw him also at DSquared show, he was wearing an impeccable light grey double breasted jacket from Cesare Attolini with a turtle neck cable-knitwear, vintage sunglasses. i love Dario’s style!
Yes not too tight this time, but i’m still not a fan of the fitted look. For a man. No. Trousers are far too short. Scarf jaunty and i wonder if he has a pocket full of different coloured scarfs to match each car he passes by?
Dario did a wonderful job of coordinating his scarf to the color of the building’s awnings! We must all learn from his lesson and begin dressing in colors that match our intended destination for the day!
wow, this almost look like a staged shoot. blue car happened to be parked where there are blue awnings with a guy in a blue coat. the sapphire blue scarf looks great on him, still looks very masculine.
The overcoat is lovely, and I especially appreciate that it is not truncated in the impractical fashion of so many that have been pushed the last couple of years. But I must question the provenance of this photo. An Italian wearing black shoes? And with a blue suit, yet? Hard to believe.
Well, now, isn’t this instructive. In contrast to the coat on the gentleman photographed on Via Montenapoleone the other day, this man’s gorgeous coat fits to perfection. Slim, but perfect. Instead of the big bulky scarf, this one is wrapped discretely but still looks like it would keep him warm. The gloves look slim and tailored. Altogether a handsome, beautifully dressed gentleman — it doesn’t get too much better than that.
It grabs the eye, while remaining subtle and understated all at the same time. Not to interject unpleasant realities like money into this, but the cost of an Attolini double-faced cashmere coat has to be substantial.
hey look! a blue car, and blue awnings in the background!! oh wait.. why would i want to say that, when everyone else already said it 67 times?
aside from that, thank you for imparting the unbelievably serendipitous circumstances of this photographic moment, as it confirms -for me, at least- that you have indeed consorted with the devil, and that anyone with any intentions to dabble in photography need follow suit.
The touches of blue are great (hey, you were lucky with this pic!), and I LOVE the length of the pants, I’ve been cropping all of my own too. Of course by a classic standpoint they are a trifle short, but why can’t we men also be fashionable and playful with clothes (and hemlines)?
Some of us like to wear our overcoats both “over” a suit or jacket, and, on occasion, without a jacket underneath – the fit will vary in each case. In fact, with a closely fitted overcoat the shape and weight of the jacket underneath can affect the fit in a big way. “Perfection” becomes a moving target.
A footnote to this shot: the parker cars, the key in signor Attolini’s hand, proof that the bicycle has to share the Milanese strada …
I do love how the other blue bits in the photo absolutely popped when I read your caption and looked back at the image with blue in my mind. A wonderful picture for this reason, and interesting insight into how the mind works with words and colors.
