    I love your site not only for the stylish clothes and quirky characters, but also b/c it fills me with wanderlust.

      Oh agreed. Only a lucky few get to travel the world, taking in each pocket of culture, watching as it Venn Diagram’s its way across a continent. This picture is a gorgeous snapshot of one person, one life, one thought, one outfit, one city. Stunning.

    Great Silhouette. Funny how his hair and shoes are both the same dark, and everything in between light

      Hey, I was going to say something about the hair and the shoes too! :D
      I love the blazer, so vintage and cool. This guy’s cool!

    This photo cracked me up! Why does it almost look like he’s floating, just hovering above the ground? I’m hoping this man has a serious sense of humor. Gotta love those shoes though. And the glasses too.

    The blazer works nicely with the white knit – great look!

      I agree! You just want to pick him up & put him in your pocket.

      Anyone else picture him with a leggy girlfriend about four inches taller then him? Guys like that always have super hot partners for some reason.

    You do have an eye for the unique, don’t you? His outfit matches himself perfectly, I like this photo very much. I love his shoes too, very rich looking… I recommend that each time you see a smoker that you encourage them to replace the cigarette with a non-lit pipe. : )

    Really? Too short pants with tons of wrinkles, baggy jacket with sleeves that are too short. The doors he is standing in front of are beautiful, but I’m not sure about his look. Somehow I’m getting visions of Urkle.

    One of the best yet. Love the simple composition with stone, metal and wood textures. Love the whole look. This dude’s got class from the glasses down! The jumper is beautiful and the whole colour palette flows down to the shoes. Excellent!

    I don’t know how to describe the love I feel for this outfti hahaha is something that I would wear thinking twice !
    The shoes and how he combine with the socks and the colors of the jacket and jumper. The chic blazar of of course the cigarette hahaha.
    The glasses, oh my! It have too much style.

    I would have loved to see a whole picture of that magnificient old door with the gorgeous metal work. I checked on the internet and found out the Fortezza is a hotel but where is this door coming from ?

      Agreed! Looks like he can’t be bothered – sometimes this works – but not this time. Well, to try and be a little more open-minded – maybe if he put his arm down and his pants had fit… yeah, and dark pants would’ve been much better – oh, OH – olive cargo pants – perfect!

    The artist.

    This man tells a story by the way he dresses. Very quirky and artsy look.
    In the East end of London (the creative hub) this a typical look.
    Nonetheless, I have to say that the jacket is beautiful.

    And the photo is spectacular

    Looks like someone has been watchimng early Jerry Lewis films. :-s
    Think it would of looked better as an outfit with a bit more colour, to neutral, purple jumper perhaps…. :)

    Jacket= great
    shoes= awesome
    sweater= Yes
    Glasses= For sure
    pants hem line= BOO! I think the high water look is silly. I have begun to realize the advantage of not swinging too extreme in fashion and remaining tied to classic proportions. The tight jeans I bought years ago are just too tight! :)
    I realize my clothes are meant to last years. They will grow with me and compliment my style and age.

    I used to adore his look, but seems like…..

    I am an american who has lived in Florence for many years, ánd this is very poor, hipster crap..

    Those who are mature in taste and style are nothing like this..

    The classical italian and English style is where it’s at..artisan made fine shoes and suits, sport coats, handkerchiefs, shirts, trousers,etc..

    He is no representative of Italian style I assure you.

    Thank goodness for the comment of “P.”

    Is everyone going blind? This is not sartorial splendor.
    The best dressed gentleman in Florence are usually older men, who claim the elegance of the past.

    The young ones look like each other the world over, wearing ugly wrinkled up old clothes that cost a fortune. They kept getting in my shot when I was visiting Florence. Vai! Vai!

    It is not a flattering outfit, yet this is the first portrait in a very long time that gives me an exciting feeling. Usually, fashion portraits tend to be glossy and in a way quite exchangeable. It’s chaps perfectly groomed and women who are absolutely beautiful, but somehow, I always feel like it’s a waste of time, thoughts and energy that’s spent on mere appearences. With this guy, it’s different. I can’t really put it into words. But it feels fresh and good.

    The mind toggles smells, fabric, words and etc. to configure something of remembrance, but my dear gent, your fabrication is of the familiar but yet distinct. The poet’s uniform met with the comfortability and rapport of the artist. The medium between character, image and personality; how did you conceive.

    Love the strong texture of the doors, makes for a terrific photograph, and I applaud the guy for his unique style and confidence. However, it doesn’t work for me. I like the shoes, but even those look like they’ve seen better days.
