    This man has an amazing sense of proportion!!
    I wouldn't think this length of shorts would work with his thick calves, but it does beautifully.

    Now those are a pair of manly legs that cry out for shorts. My eyes are drawn down to the socks, too

    Those mailman shorts are very dope. I'd just hike it up right about the knee though

    I love it when you attend Pitti. I find the attendees have the BEST personal style, better than Men's Milan Fashion Week. MORE PICS!!!!!!

    Those calves have had some serious workout.

      That’s more genetics than workout. Some people are blessed with legs like that and they don’t really have to do anything to keep them shapely.

    Wow I hope to have as much style as him when i'm older. Plus those calves are killer!

    wow, he shows that style doesn't have to fade with age.
    i hope i'm not afraid to be as fashionable as him when i get older haha.

    What kind of shoes is he wearing? The shorts work with the socks, miraculously.

    Do those shoes have laces? It's hard to tell. I want more info, I love the gummy sole.

    I have calves like that, but skinny ankles. I've never thought about wearing long socks to draw the attention north to the calf region, but I'm taking notes from this very stylish and fit gentleman.

    The only thing I'm unsure about is the pink glasses, too much?

    i can never tell if people like this dress so fantastically intentionally. they look so very relaxed, almost as if they just happened to put on something fabulous. it gives it such real feeling.

    Really sick style! Love the mix of patterns – ESPECIALLY, the socks!

    I cannot think of words to describe how much I love this man. The hair, the glasses, the jackets, the shorts, belt, lovely legs and sock! I mean it is wonderful.

    That is the best-dressed older gentleman I've seen in a long while.

  35. Stephen

    One could not hope for a better-cut pair of short trousers than those. This man has pulled a well-studied shorts/jacket combination perfectly, thus avoiding that Haircut 100 look.

    And damn that is some muscles.

    Please more Pitti goers—by far the most interesting and inspiring style! Thankfully you are there!

    This outfit wouldn't be complete without the vein on his right calf.

    I would not want to get kicked by him.

    These shoes really say it all!

    So, uh, yeah…I'm biting his style. Heading to the uniform store tomorrow and then going to get back on the road bike.

    The play on proportion is beautiful. I also love how the jacket works with the socks.

    Perfection I think!

    that pop of colour with the yellow belt is perfection!

    I love these shorts. They don't flare up at the bottom. A lot of shorts I bought recently do flare up at the bottom.

    Wow… He should have cycled a lot to deliver the mail, he's got awesome calves and hes quite proud to show them off. Such a pity he's a fashion victim, looks like a real man.
