RJH… Thats right, the suits are amazing, and the way they wear them its perfect.. Especially with the bottom of the pants is just barely touching the shoes, thats how pants need to always be, in Italy we say that the pant needs to KISS the SHOE
These guys are stylish with whatever they wear anyway!!!..
Ciao Giuseppe…well,I say “kiss the men” that get the “kiss the shoe” right…today during morning rush hour,I travelled on the train into the capital,hoards of people at the station and on the train but,there were very few that got the break of the pants just right and when they did their very stylish shoes stole the show…loads of great double monk straps to be seen…there is a whole new generation of very,very stylish young gentlemen out there…they are the ones that keep the art of satorialism alive.
OMG. I like the fact that there’s a man with a mohawk in this photo. I thought that was a trend only in urban style. Spot on! I would love to be lucky enough to be on the street walking past these gentlemen and shaking my head at how dapper and handsome they are.
Honestly, I just see men in suits that look like they were washed in the machine and shrunk. The waists fall above the real waist and the pants are two inches too short. there are pull lines when the jackets are buttoned. Suits look old, worn, machine washed.
You are one hundred percent correct. There is a reason that the shrunken suits of the sixties went out of fashion, and that is because they were uncomfortable as all hell. It’s one thing to be incredibly tailored, but totally another to be tailored to the point of a straight jacket and codpiece.
Every now and then you produce one of these images that feels outside time, and makes fashion feel like part of a continuum. These men have the swagger, and those variations in dress/hair etc mainly apparent to those able to interpret them (of the era) that must exist in all times. As types, these men are timeless, and you’ve shown in this picture how timeless fashion is as a way of expressing self.
The other two images of yours that spring to mind are the one of people sitting expectantly at the front row of some fashion show (has a Rembrandt feel), and another of two men – brothers? – with beautiful blackberry eyes, in France I think. It has a very dynamic feel.
Anyway, this is definitely one of my favourite shots of yours.
I can’t help not to think that looking at this photo in 50 or 100 years Lino and the other gentlemen will still look elegant and classy while the gentleman in a mohawk and short pants will just look plain silly!
