    I wish I was a man so that I could look like this.

      I’m a man and I wish I was as manly looking as him to look like that.

    Very nice casual style indeed. He looks like “un vieux loup de mer”, the guy who’s returning home after a long voyage on a ship.
    He reminds me of Hugues Aufray.

      “Un vieux loup de mer” is, I think, my favorite new phrase! Thanks, Sevan!

        Mine too. You can actually see how did he look like when he was young. There’s something in it

    I’ve never been to Italy, but if this is par for the course, the Italians have a well-deserved stereotype for dressing well.

    July 13, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    I hope when I reach his age I look just as effortless as this gentleman

    Has taken a beachy swagger to the city!

  20. J.Ro

    July 13, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    He looks so carelessly cool that if he and Indiana Jones got into a street fight, I’d root for him over Harrison.

    The friendship bracelet details are great.

    Great look and capture! Only Italians can pull a look like this in such balance like, everything is cool.
    Thanks for the inspiration Scott!

  24. Ludmilla

    July 13, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Fabulous. And he is not 25, like that the most, that’s the continental style!

  25. Johnny

    July 13, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    HEre’s the thing: it’s never too casual when it comes to Italian casual…they’re always so stylish even in sportswear!

  26. Simbarashe

    July 13, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    playful bracelets on a macho man. Interesting…

    Does anyone else think he looks like the Dos Equis man??

  32. roelien

    July 13, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    a hippy-meets-trad-feel – anyway, he looks great.
    1 pointer to keep in mind though, from ex-model turned singer-songwriter jim white: hook that jacket, bag or whatever on your thumb, so you don’t get ‘the ugly claw’…

    He’s trying too hard with the unbuttoned shirt and way too many necklaces and bracelets. I’m not fooled.

    • orinoco womble

      July 19, 2012 at 9:40 am

      I’m with you, Catherine. It’s not that hard. Cool is effortless, and this is trying way too hard. Too many bangles, too much artful scruffiness.

    Is it just me or does this man look like an older Hugh Jackman? Love the shirt and the bracelets. People are wonderful. Thank you Sartorialist!

    July 13, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    This gent looks like he’s on his way back from an Italiano James Bond casting. He knows what to do and how to do it, right down to how to hold a bag. Effortless style!

    July 13, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Oh jeez. See, men’s “casual” in Canada means “excessively baggy cargo shorts and sports-logo t-shirt with shoulder seams half-way down the arm, with baseball cap.”

    Men’s “casual” in Milan means style, fit, COLOUR, and accessories!!! I am SO digging the men’s Milanese shots. I mean, look at those delicate bracelets …. which offsets, as opposed to contradicts, his masculinity.

    He is going overboard with the number of necklaces and the length of his belt here.

  60. Grey Fox

    July 14, 2012 at 12:50 am

    He is on the verge of overdoing it with all the bracelets and necklaces, but just carries it off.
    I like the too-long belt.

  79. Vesper

    July 14, 2012 at 8:45 am

    Besides the fact that he looks good and creative, he also seems to have some kind of softness, a caring look into his eyes: the one thing that separates the macho from the masculine man you’d trust with your inner self. Very interesting picture, wonderfully shot.

  80. Iso

    As always, you have the eye for men, wow wow. I don’t know, the one you “select” often look so laid back, so virils, so free and fresh.

    Love how effortlessly stylish this is…he probably puts little effort into choosing his clothes but has an innate ability to look good…

  85. Leila

    How can a guy wear that many necklaces and still look like a real man?? He somehow does. Great pic.

    July 14, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Casual friday isn’t quite the right word when describing Italian style. Ok, maybe it’s not quite as done up as usual, but for most people in North America this would not be considered ‘casual’. I would love if even this was considered everyday wear for North American men, they should take a page out of this man’s book. I also like how Italian men can pull of the unshaven look while still looking sophisticated, like this man.

  88. Rowena

    July 14, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    He has poise beauty and effortless style only a Gentleman never wears jewelry. An old outdated tradition I hear you say. Check out Prince William a modern Gentleman displaying no watch not even a wedding ring. Put it away chaps!

  89. Sophie Mhabille

    July 14, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    He is not so young but he looks like young and cool

  94. Patrick

    July 14, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Leave the jewelry to the twenty year olds, tuck in the shirt, trim the beard, and he’d look a lot better. I like the belt and its length.

    As a rule of thumb, the older you get, the more fastidious you need to be in your grooming.

  97. Demetri

    Sadly, if I were to wear this where I live I’d be asked why I’m so dressed up. That said, perfect.

    The bracelets and neckles really added to the style

  101. Rizalenio

    Very cool. I’ll copy that style.

  102. Jennifer

    Keeping your shape small, wearing bright happy colors, some fun accessories for visual interest, and choosing clothing with a youthful cut can keep a person looking SMART no matter what age they are.

    • Andre

      July 17, 2012 at 9:20 pm

      i do agree with Fred! wise thought!

  106. Jim

    July 15, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    Would look better if he lost the wrist and neck jewellery.

  107. Christian

    July 15, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    To many necklaces and bracelets. I think he’s trying far to hard and it does not look smart at all.

  108. PAUL

    July 15, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    People, it is not the clothes. It is the man that is stunning.

    Sometimes this site shows the ridiculous. Sometimes the people wear attention getting outfits that look nothing more than “I paid a lot for this and I know it looks bad, but look at me anyway”. Not so with this gentleman. This look is perfect in every way. Bravo!

    In a time its never excessively easy going when it comes, making it impossible to Italian easygoing and they’re generally so smart even in sports wearing.

    This site is completely awesome. I’ve search these info a long time and
    I realised that is good written, easy to understand. I congratulate you for this research that I
    am going to recommend to prospects around. I request you to go to the
    page where each college student or college student can find ratings
    gpa marks. All good!
