Beautiful clothes, I love Ralph. Gorgeous EG/RLPL shoes. Great bags. But…between you and those men in Milan, you have turned me into a sartorial detail snob. Where are the shirt cuffs? Don't like the trouser bottoms, look indecisive. Long haired fellow has a little contrast going on and really like his overall look but something is missing. Pocket square? Other gent looks like a British politician or a banker with a good tailor. Nice clothes but not much style. I know I'm a heel but I've been spoiled by those damn Italians.
Fantastic photo! Compare and contrast: two ways to wear a suit. Business chic on the left; dressed down sophistication on the right, even down to the respective shaved head and longer curling hair. Pity most men seem to rebel against looking so grown up and put together.
long hair is definitely on the radar! hot, especially w/ that glowing smile. love the brown shoes. love the bag w/ the purple gent. not sold on the other one – looks like my mom's carry-all. but both need to show some cuff – especially on the navy suit… otherwise the sleeves just look too short. the lack of wedding bands gives me hope!
" Better fit and cut IMHO than what Mr. Marzotto was wearing a few photos ago.:
…..Er…no….the db suit looks good but not really in the same league as Matteo's…….Overall the guys look very good though and a nice contrast in neck treatments not to mention hair styles….like the bags too.
Both ensembles are stunning, but I think my favorite thing about this photo, what stopped me from moving on quickly, is the fact that both of them are wearing such lovely smiles. The smiles lend a genuineness to fashion, which is often sorely lacking.
Once and for all: YES! Real men carry bags — and eat quiche. When living in the City, and constantly on the go, you need a variety of things with you at all times. These can be carried easily in a smart bag, leaving your trouser and jacket pockets free from bulging
This is Ralph Lauren at it's best. Thirty years from know this photograph will drip with style. The ascot with the six on two double breasted suit with ticket pocket is killer. The keaton collar worn by the gentleman on the left is stunning. BRAVO!!
Yes, lots of men often carry a bag! Where do you people live that this seems so odd to you? Going to work with the papers you worked on the night before, then the gym, stopping by the market, and maybe out til later that night. Sometimes you just gotta have some stuff with you to get thru your day. You have to carry it in something!
As far as any of the negative comments – these guys have got it all right by the most traditional dressing standards. I’m not saying you have to like it; I actually find them just a bit on the conservative side myself, but they simply have checked all the boxes on the list of “dressing well.” “Two at Ralph Lauren” suggests they were either at a show, work there, or shop there, indicating that they clearly have the breeding, money, and taste to know how to dress.
I really want to address this specific comment: “oversized jackets and overly long and baggy hip-hop width pants. Are middle aged men in USA now reaching towards baggy youth styles?” Are you looking at the same picture I am? I don’t see “oversized”, “baggy hip-hop”, and certainly NOT “middle aged men”!!! What are you seeing here?
I know how to dress, and have sold clothing as well; the suits are tailored perfectly. I bet these two young guys would be amused to think you find them middle-aged. Goddd, if you saw me (at 57) I guess I’d look like Methuselah to you!
