    Under that jacket the gingam shirt doesn't work …maybe a unit color would be better.

    What is not to love about a sharp dressed man! The gingham shirt is a wonderful contrast to the conservative blues. Bello!

    I've always been a fan of this look… I don't like ties THAT much so whenever I can wear the shirt unbuttoned I have a sense of freedom

    Love the combination, especially the blueish / gray slacks which look like subtle plaid (?). Where are the shoes?

    to the earlier post, check hair is not such a bad thing you know. most men have it, and most non-american women love it. why there is such a taboo on chest hair in this culture is curious.

    So simple yet so elegant! It says light and springy but with winter cools, good job!

    you'll find I will say this a lot for every outfit, I think he needs a hat! A gray fedora with a 1 inch brim would be a nice touch.

    I am dying to see the shoes though!

    This man Stefano has great flair and he is one of your more fascinating subjects; he looks the role of a pensive, well-dressed planner of sorts.

    Terrific look–perfect for day, and a great way to inject casual fun into the ensemble.

    I just love this old school style, with rebellious unbuttoning bringing it to the 21st century. Crisp looking shirt, sharp looking eyes!

    Another great example of Stefano Tonchi's sense of sprezzatura

  38. Anonymous

    cool & wearable. But the unbuttoned cuff is an affectation that kills sprezzatura. Why so many people doing it now? like the unbuttoned button down shirt.

    be original, be yourself!

    I love how the whole gingham and the sport coat get along so well with his grey trousers. Has a somewhat transitional fall feel to it. Good job spotting him Sart. The only thing wrong with the look is the attempt at the unbuttoned casual feel. I usually like the unbuttoned imperfect look but I'm not feeling it on this man. His shirt looks too floppy.

    Love this look.



    And a very elegant watch.


    October 29, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    I think the whole outfit is fantastic and classic. It that a DB blazer?

    Classic, simple style, yes, but I'm surprised that no one commented on the double-breasted jacket and the manner in which the open collar provides a perfect counterpoint to the peaks on the jacket. It is always interesting to me to note how a simple invocation of a little geometry achieves a heightened stylistic effect. Also, the color story here is one of understated elegance: silver, gray and a touch of white-all of which are amplified by the color of his hair and his eyes, two assets which astute dressers always seek to take advantage of.

    He's lovely to look at, but that photo is not from the street, as someone already pointed out, this was taken at a fashion show. Apparently he's a well-known fashion editor, and although very lovely to look at, I miss your great finds, those people who aren't in the industry…

    What I love about his style, that he combines classical and casual elements:
    double- breasted jacket: left open
    checked shirt: open cuffs, open collar
    light grey trousers… nice with dark blue jacket and the timeless silver watch

    This style simply funtions!Nice!

    I think Stephano achieved a clean yet sporty look with the gingham shirt and the very dressy grey trousers. Throw on a navy blazer and you could go anywhere!

    A colleague out of the Belgian office visited one day in a light grey suit and orange gingham shirt. Terrific combination. And, as only Europeans seem able to do, made the suit look relaxed and natural.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!
