    sometimes amongst all these great shots of individuals we forget that fashion is subject to trends. kind of weird to see so many men looking the same…

    Do I need a pair of white pants? I have resisted to buy a pair all my life but they seem to be necesary now. Am I missing out on something?

    I love this classic look.

    Living in Scotland means that I have to travel before I can wear such a outfit!

    the man up top means business, serious business. the mo', the chambray, the white jeans, even down to the veins in his foot and tan of his belt. wow. the pose, pow! there is relief in the softness of his jacket and the whimsy of the pocket square. overall, he looks arresting.

    After the various portraits of Italian men in summery, sock-free bliss, the last photo's subject is wearing socks. Quite jarring to the eyes!

    The first photo is just beautiful.

    I've always felt that white pants looked better on men than they did on women (well, most women).

    HELP – who makes the loafers in the last photograph??

    Trying to find a good pair of properly made, subtle & refined shoes is – as far as I'm concerned – nigh on impossible. Not to mention trying to find a good cobbler to rescue over-worn favourites.

    Any thoughts?

  47. BasicbutChic

    July 16, 2010 at 6:29 am

    I give a special mention fot the second color combination : the mustards shoes are perfect with the dark blue "blazer" : two strongs colors with the white shirt and pants : that makes a dynamic and light allure !

    Great look! I've always loved socklessness, and only wear socks under extreme duress. Black shoes with white pants, not so much.

    Well, I was wearing white trousers and suede shoes over the week-end & I live in London… Arguably, I spent some time in Portofino so I may have soaked up the influence!

    I rather like tubular white trousers!

  54. Jhordana

    July 16, 2010 at 9:21 am

    Even if the white pants are not for every kind of men, this man has the perfect figure to use, tall, slim and sleek. The navy blazer and the impeccable suede shoes are perfect for everyone. Love that style!

    Are these guys really in uniform? It demonstrates how even the same clothes can express every people's own style. I will take the advice.

    Great trousers, whatever their length, whatever their hem. Similarly, the shoes (ie great). I still can't do shoes without socks for men!

    Its not so much a uniform, it just works well and is cool and comfortable, can be worn everywhere. Fantastic shoes. I don't think all women know that good, quality shoes for men are over $300,even at bargain places-makes it difficult for most to have many options. Cheaper shoes? always look cheap, mostly plastic, and hurt!

    From your photos I feel like every stylish man in Italy must spend half his time posing with one leg up on something talking on a cell phone. Its like they're all just waiting for you to wander by and snap a quick shot of their perfectly styled ankle. Fabulous.

    I do like this particular look, however this is a great example of something that needs the right circumstances to function. Here in Norway, most of the time, this would look just silly.

    But I do like it! ;)

    When I see a man wearing suede shoes, it makes my heart melt (+he must be 1)handsome or 2) extremely smart but trying to hide it!

  68. Kathleen

    Are we talking shoes or pants here? I think both! I purchased two pair of pants a few weeks ago. The same pant, one in black and the other white. They are the lightest chino possible, almost transparent. I have been wearing them both rolled up several times at the ankle with like colored tank. Or, black with white or white with black and shiny bronze sandals and tons of silver bangles. I can't get enough of this summery fun look.

    I love these blazers and the semi-casual shoes with the white pants too. I will do this number when it cools down here in about three months!

    It's fun to see those who dress uniquely, but the more original their art the less it says about their context, their city. I love to see these trends in fashion that overtake a city like the flu, maybe spread to other cities, or maybe just die out. Thanks for pointing this one out!

    Oh dear, guy #2 with the buckskin-colored suede boots – don't look too closely – not so cool. I would never let my man out of the house with badly finished hems on his pants. I don't want to see any socks, and I don't want to see any rough edges – of any sort :-). Norine

    Reminds me of the 60's style of Robert Culp in the I Spy television show. A great look for summer. Kinda continental thought b/c I haven't seen this look stateside.

    image two: delicious!
    image one: this is never a flattering posture for a man.
    image three: not so much.
    image four: the lace up oxfords are lovely! those loafers seem very well loved and probably feel great but look a little weary.

    nonetheless, all of the images are wonderful fashion.

    If you look at them individually they look so chic, but when I think about it, they seem as if they've lost inspiration to dress up with their own imagination. But still I love the style :)

    I am surprised at the comments stating these looks are unusual or rare….not seen stateside! Its an East coast- NY summer uniform, Southampton and East Hampton parties: legions of men in blue blazers and white/tan/yellow! pink! trousers! socks are forbidden!

    Every time I wear white pants I live in fear of getting something, anything, on them. Yet all these gents appear un-marred. Perhaps I'm just too messy to wear white. I don't know, but I'm impressed with their courage!
