I think the above explained it all. He’s very sexy!
Another great shot sart! Is this where a coat meets a cape? Those raglan sleeves and that bitty belts meake this coat look so fresh. Of course the slim trouser leg, beat-up shoe, and chisled features don’t hurt either. Also nice move not adding a euro scarf …would have been too much.
Isn’t this coat a bit bulky, actually?i.e not the tailored look that you would ordinarily endorse. Either way, it looks good. Don’t like the pants though and jury still out on the shoes. There’s something about this picture and this guy that is right, but at the same time that just doesn’t gel. Who knows.
Can you please define how long the dress pants should be? I’m working in menswear store, and I was trained since my first day that pants should end an inch above the floor, or right by the top of the shoe heel. I noticed same length in another stores/ brands across North America. But watching all menswear pictures from europe, i see everybody have theirpants much shorter…so what’s right or what’s appropriate for what?
I learned the same thing. The problem with “high fashion” is that there are many variables. If you are in a mid-price, traditional menswear store, stick to the traditional rules. If you are selling Thom Browne, and follow his aesthetic, the pants will be short.
I’ve seen that many people comment this way about light-colored clothes. But, the thing is, in dress clothes, you’re not going to be playing rugby. Yes, you might clean it more often than a dark coat but, with care, it won’t be all that much more. Just FYI, I had a charcoal gray suit that I don’t think I ever had cleaned and wore it well over 10 years. I would brush it up and press the pants, hang it up, and it was good to go the next time. Having several suits to rotate helps as well. If you have only one suit that you wear every day, that’s another matter. Thanks.
If I had this coat I don’t think I’d wear anything under it just because it’s so great on it’s own. It’d be tied of course and with maybe a pair of slacks or jeans but only so I don’t come off as weird.
Are we playing with shapes? I LOVE IT! At first I barely glanced at it- but when I blew it up I saw that this sweet macho head is well shrunken compared to his giant billowy coat. Then his legs look so bare and skinny (also playing with the light vs. dark!) with those GINORMOUS leather lace up shoes.. Tentatively scuffed perfection is what I call it!
I think he is Sex on legs. He has a Viggo Mortensen quality, raw yet elegant. Funny how italien men are recognizable, classy and sexy, easy on the eyes and something in their posture. Love the coat, seems to have enough space for 2.
