Hi, great picture! I like the soft construction jacket, being a thrift-shopper, I usually pick them up it they are a good fabric and in my size. LOVE the shoes, the are obviously good quality and they are perfectly shined. Men’s classic shoes are an investment, no doubt about that. I am a bit less enchanted by the pants, although I read everywhere that pleats are coming back, I got rid of most of my pleated pants and only wear pleats when part of a suit. I will be interested to ready other comments on the length, but my ignorant opinion is that if you are going to wear a cuff, the pant should “break” and slightly touch the shoe.

Beautifully done. The first thing my eye went to was the length of his pants. A side affect of peering at your images for the past few months became apparent last week when I began pulling Fall clothes out and trying them on- I thought everything was too long! The pants, the shirt sleeves- and imagine the alteration bills! The effects of your blog are far-reaching, alright. HIS sleeves look a bit long but it’s probably his stance. He looks like someone who’d be correct in all the details.
Sart – you’ve convinced me Milanese men are the best dressers in the world! Hope you had time to go shopping for yourself. If you did will you tell us what you bought and share you own wardrobe secrets?
Nice drape on the jacket indeed. Contributes to his overall sense of ease. I think it is cut a little long but that is the only fault. Fall is upon us, gray and blue are a great direction to go. As far as the cuffed trouser not having a pronounced break, I think it is fine and adds a nice weight to a pleated pant. Interesting use of the bike rack as cane – great accessorizing! ;-)
i like how his pleated pants arent too baggy.. that’s a tough balance to find. i also read that the bigger cuffs are stylish in italy. what about the shoulders on his jacket? a little too wide? tie is thinner, but not so thin it will go back out of style
I love everything: glasses, hair, smile, jacket (which seems a bit boxy IMO) shoes, tie and color palette. I’m not however a fan of the pants. Pleats don’t flatter anyone’s body and the length here (regardless of whether or not it’s a trend, etc.) just isn’t appealing. The line of the leg looks stumpy and in fact with hands in pockets gives the wearer hips that may not be there.
It’s kind of nice to see a longer and looser coat on this guy at a time when shorter and more form fitting seems to be the trend. His color combination is easy on the eye, conveying a natural elegance.
Classy and confortable, very Milanese; I am particularly fond of the fake third button on the jacket, which gives a more relaxed look to the whole attire. It is very difficult to do pleated trousers this well, they do not look baggy at all.
the Italian fashion news exposed here is that Italians are anglophiles. the shoes? strictly English, pleats in the pants and shirt collar all very English. The jacket? see Clark Gable circa 1939, so one for the Yanks. All in all a very cool gentleman, wish there were more.
Don’t know who makes these but there is a lot of this kind of thing around if you go looking for it. I have a shop that sells specs and this style is becoming ever more popular. At a guess I would say these are natural horn or at least bone effect rather than white.
A natural and simple elegance, no flashy, no intimidating but very pleasant. An appearance very nearby (he’s for me like my father). His kind attitude, His glasses, his face, his gray hair and his smile are his best garments.
