Your “those shoes” remark interests me because they don’t seem to be anything special, other than the fact that they are “real” dress shoes and not athletic shoes or boots. Are you American? If so, could your noticing them be because so many American guys are in athletic shoes so often, and – YUCK! – flip-flops in the summer? I’m in “real” shoes most of the time and find them to be perfectly comfortable to spend the day in (yes, I buy fairly expensive shoes by many people’s standards). Can’t even remember my last pair of white athletic shoes. I think if more men bought better shoes, they could wear them instead of something more casual – always equating athletic (ugly) with comfort…
Absolutely right, sports shoes of any kind should only be worn for playing sports. Same goes for sports wear in general, especially baseball caps. Problem is, really good proper shoes cost an arm and a leg!
please note that he’s not wearing open toed shoes or even just a sweater vest with short sleeves in order to “stand-out” .
this man is beautifully dressed in a wool cap, coat, trousers, he has on gloves and a muffler. he stands out – because of his color and fabric choices and finding the glamor in dressing in a handsome way that might also preserve his health.
What a great picture! It reminds me so much of my grandpa walking around Milan. He had one of those that would last for years, literally!
I’m so in love with your shoots from Milan, they capture the true essence of this city.
Ciao from Italy
I love the pictures of the older gentlemen. They’ve developed their own unique style, stick to their guns and don’t give a damn about trends. A lot of the younger guys are trying way too hard to make a statement about their originality.
