Okay it is a little affected, but in general this guy looks great…Scott you surprise me sometimes with your conservatism…sartorial flair in my mind is always off the beaten path a bit…live and let live even with candy bracelets…f***ed up wing tip seems a little harsh
Wow, now he’s got great fashion sense! There is a kind of confidence/arrogance that surronds him, which is a good thing. Because this allows him to take some risks with his wardrobe and not give a damn what anyone else thinks. Bravo.
Great look. I would never wear white shoes, but seeing those makes me rethink it.
Cycling-related aside: He appears to have shaved legs with slight sock tan – maybe a cyclist? An Italian cyclist? There must be a lot of them in Italy b/c it’s a popular sport – but it seems like every human in Italy smokes.
oh my. I’m not crazy about the skin color, but that trouser length, with those wingtips…that’s really great. thom browne aside, it reminds me of that GQ shot of Orlando Bloom with the high-cuffed white corduroys and saddle shoes.
his accessory was neon socks, though, instead of an anklet.
Sometimes, I think you have a bit “tropo vino sulla menta”, I must say,I don’t get it. Do you not encompass personal style? I know, I know…With a personal flair. Is this not? I must say that this post is a major contradiction.
Looks like a bit of an eccentric cyclist (note the shaved legs), or possibly he spends his evenings in drag as a 16 year old tourist from the USA, which would explain the ankle bracelet. At first glance, I thought the wing tips were white bucks…paired with the rest of the ensemble would be nice.
It’s great how you can find the same people and shoot them at different times. It brings a more anthropological aspect to your work, and offers more of a personal perspective (from both you and the subject) than a random snapshot does. I find this evolution really interesting because now you can truly touch upon the notion of “personal style” instead of snapping “today’s flavor”.
This is a guy to write a novel about – you wonder where he’s been, what he does. The dark tan, ankle beads, color combo add up to great style. I love people who just do whatever they want and it comes out so right.
This whole look is fab. Love the wingtips, white buttons, pocket square, socklessness, tan, and cuffed trous. At first I wasn’t sure about an anklette on a man, but the fact that it’s sort of “private”–hidden unless he sits down–makes it beguiling.
It’s interesting how we (well, at least I) still hesitate a little when men decorate themselves in a way traditionally associated (in our culture) with women.
thanks for the clarification…I just was not quite sure how you could fault this guy…f*ups was a little lost on me…I took as a negative slam…as to my earlier comment about “conservatism”…it stems from your short pants knee sock rant months ago…but I now stand corrected…keep snapping the photos…!!
Interesting how Sart’s use of f* up didn’t translate as positive to many people. This is a case where slang doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone. The point was that the man’s unusual juxtapositions give him an edge. Definitely a positive. Sometimes f*ing up a traditional look is exactly what you want to do.
The shoes are nice and in this case-when the legs are obviously shaved, itÂ´s okay without socks.I think the band around the ankle is too much-it somehow hints too feminine.He is in good flesh and really looks Italian and his face reveals his age and there is nothing wrong about that.
How on earth do you remember each and every person you meet? May I ask how you label your pictures privately – by their full names perhaps? Or, do you really remember them by their clothes?! I’m fascinated by that part!
Nooooooooooo! What next, an ankle chain? I applaud trying new stuff but this is not looking good – imagine just how much more stylish he would look without it. On the other hand a leather knit rope would be perfect on a man’s ankle on the beach or with flip flops on holidays.
