Lovely outfit that totally transforms a normal man into a gentleman! My boyfriend has a similar suit from U-NI-TY, a French brand. The only thing that is missing is a hat. A man always looks better with a good hat! =)
Although everything mixes and matches perfectly, the grays in his hair and beard along with the clothes.. I still think this is a bit too much, the look is too textured. Maybe a shorter haircut, maybe the beard needs a trim?
Looks like the owner of the "Tie your tie" shop in Florence. I saw a couple just like Scott and Garance shopping there yesterday in the afternoon, so maybe they were really Scott and Garance. By the way, Garance's shoes yesterday were really good ;-)
Cool. I love this Italian style that you can recognize everywhere you see it. Stylish, distinguish, but less stressed than English people (that I also love). looks like Italian people would live into fashion.
What tricky sophistication this is! The similarity between the suit pattern and the overcoat pattern winks at you before rounding the corner and being lost to the difference between their colors and textures. The scarf and tie work cooperate to create a deeper sense of unity in the ensemble, while the blue vest(?) peeks out with a sultry contrast.
All in all, I wish this dapper man were my grandfather and we would go out for breakfast every Thursday morning at the cafe four blocks over.
Super photo. Nice use of depth of field and the horizontal lines on the left and right push the subject right to the front. His outfit is great. As others have already said the hint of blue is perfect. I like the four in hand knot in the tie. It adds a touch of rakishness to the whole look. His pose is spot on.
i love the co-ordination between the scarf and the tie but as many people pointed out, i feel like its the hint of blue that pulls it together without the blue sweater, i feel that the brown scarf, brown tie, and grey suit would look drab–especially the tie and scarf, i feel it would look just too sloppy and it would just make the suit melt in grey and brown the blue really accentuates everything, but its subtle one hardly notices–on first glance there is something that just looks right. by the way, i love his coat as well. it kind of blends into the suit, but the texture is a little chunkier giving it some distinction, and it appears to be a warmer smoky grey. brilliant co-ordination. its not kooky, or avante-garde, its just a clean, timeless suit any gentleman should be able to pull together from his closet, and if he cant then his closet is not complete.
You have sooooo many old, classy European looking dudes on this blog. They're all starting to run together in my mind. I like the hint of blue amidst all that brown. Did he dye his hair brown too? That beard is in no way matching.
I,ve been rocking the DB suit now and then myself for the last couple of years, and this is a nice reminder of why. DBs need a sense of maturity to really pull it off, without looking like fashion. This guy looks so at home in this outfit, you just know he didn't buy it all yesterday. If I saw him in the street I'd wonder what he does dressed so dapper.
double breasted suit and a double breasted overcoat (i'm assuming that based on the peaked lapels and sheer bulk of it) thats baller! the simplicity of the tie, shirt, sweater, and scarf allow you to fully contemplate the way those plaid checks wrap around his body showing off the tailoring with grid-like precision. but what shoes is he wearing? other photos frequently show him in contrasting kicks, if so i can imagine they would help stabilize the look.
I wish i could dress like Simone for everyday life(can afford and put it off, and look my best), but I will look OVERDRESSED for my workplace(design firm)… we here in North America are dressed TOO casual…
This is how a gentleman should be dressed, this is that I intend for elegance! I have been from Tie Your Tie really today !I have spent the whole evening to try me the new suits thanks still uncle Simone Matteo
