That’s exactly what bothers me about this outfit. Why do some guys at Pitti feel the need to dress like its the 1800′s? There are outfits and there are costumes, and this is the latter. I really like the oversized pocket flaps though!
Ha! I value wide turnout, too. Who could do Padmasana (Lotus pose) otherwise! I am not discounting the necessity for full range of motion.
But if ever you take up running (or yoga), point your feet forward and roll your thighs inward. Of course, as a serious dancer, you can probably do so. But many people cannot counter their tendencies, even temporarily.
Yes, this fellow is unmistakable. That’s the sign of a sartorialist, no?
If this entire ensemble was worn by an Italian man, there would be a mild cloud of perfume following in his wake. Pino Silvestre, for example. I wonder if this man is wearing cologne, And if so, what it would be. Great photo!
The coat is fabulous. I like how the green lines pop out against the caramel, the large cuffs, and the double pocket on one side. The shape is great too- when heavy coats in that length and colour are tailored it can look too 1970′s.
The rest of the outfit with all the leather accessories is very masculine.
The more I think about it the more i love it. Thanks for uploading it! I’m now inspired to think about how I can incorporate some of this gentlemen’s look into my wardrobe.
i was just wondering why you have not showed men in riding boots earlier. in our small european town (basel), guys are happily walking around in riding boot – even in a skinnier version – slim fitted trousers and so the boots (black!).
