You are right, That jacket has a really nice shape, and goes to show that something does not have to be completely form fitting to be complimentary. I love the shirt too, and the aviators, but I think the ribbon belt really kills this look. Maybe a brown leather belt, or none at all — do you think this even needs a belt? well, maybe it does, but it should be something simple. The purple ribbon belt makes this look like a novelty or something. I feel like ribbon belts should only be worn on Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard.
I left Milan almost 2 months ago after living there for a year and a half..I miss it even more after seeing these beautiful pictures. Italians really know how to dress, they aren’t afraid of colour, especially the men. Bravo for this guy! Mi piace la sua giacca. Che bello!
The purple he used is almost like the purple on Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label “labels”. Most people regard suede as a fragile leather with bad cuts from the 60s and 70s, but in recent years it has gotten better, softer- at least suede of good quality. Great look overall! Jorge from W Palm Beach
Well yes, this is perfect. Again, if one is slim they can wear anything and he is taking advantage of it by wearing a jacket with extra bulk at the pockets and letting the belt buckle peek from between the open buttons. Wonderful color and assemblage of ingredients. He looks great.
It’s a purple A-1 flight jacket. The original jacket from 1927 until superceeded by the A-2 (the classic ww2 “bomber”) in the early 30′s. Original A-1′s were made in capeskin. This is quite a startling interpretation of it.
For those of you asking about finding his belt, I’d recommend J Press, they have some similar styles. If that doesn’t fit your fancy, wait until the spring lines when J Crew and Polo will certainly have something similar in stock.
I absolutely love this. I love the way it pinches in at the waist, the sleeves, i love the collar, the buttons, the pockets, the SHAPE, OH THE SHAPE, and the choices he’s made for the rest of the look are excellent. Well done.
Really? I don’t know about this one. He looks a little stunned to be caught on camera wearing this out. I think the cut of this jacket is all wrong (save the sleeves and collar). Why on earth would you want to wear a purple jacket that automatically gave you love-handles? Don’t get me wrong, i love purple and this is a great shade of it, but paired with this slapdash design, feh. Feh i say.
