    All you have to do to transform a serious, stately man into a poser is sit him on a bike :D I should try that sometime!

    I’ve just come back from a regular visit to Tokyo. Why don’t you do a “On the Street…Tokyo”?! there are wonderful people to see there and amazing bicycles, the ‘mamachari’.

    Love this picture and your way of capturing italian style. I wonder what are the differences beetwen italian style in diffrent regions of Italy. Would be great if you could talk about it and show it with your photos sometime.

    Italy… What more is there to say… :-) I sometimes have the feeling that the Italians simply absorb this great style from the very moment they are born! Being stylish is simply inevitable for them I guess

    Gentlemen take note;this man knows the right way to dress! The italians do indeed have an inate sense of style that the rest of us can learn from. This is a fabulous pic that also provides a valuable lesson that men need to pay attention to how they look!
