ugh. painfully cute and good. I mean, nice clothes, I’m sure. But he takes what is essentially an old-ass looking blazer and paint-speckled-ass trousers (bottom), and transforms them (the bracelet, the two white sleeve buttons poking out, the eyewear, whatever it is breaking his jacket’s lines in his pocket, and of course the enormous scarf) into something far better and cooler than “perfection”. This puts a cigarette out in perfection’s wine.
The Persol sunglass in the second picture has been wore by 3 of your subjects in the last 2 weeks. First on the ‘Vampire Three’, then on the beautiful woman in ‘Via Turati’ and now Mr. Comte. 1 style, 3 completely different looks. It goes to show how timeless Persol is.
I was wondering the same thing about the excess length of the jeans rolled up. I am in a lab in CA and a young chemist wears her jeans with about 8″ of cuff rolled up. I thought it was odd at first, then when I saw Sart posting these picture today, I thought, this is more widespread than I thought…East coast! Not sure if I could wear my jeans like that.
again : love the scarf – would buy this for my husband and then wear it myself ;-)))
I think his shoes are Prada ; they look exactly the same as a brown pair hubby has in his closet … He always says they are comfy…so that’s why we see them in both pictures … Only women would suffer from ‘pieds douloureux’ and wear the most horrific shoes (do love her blue ribboned ballerina’s..)
Note, too, the black and white cord around Mr. Comte’s wrist. It symbolizes solidarity with Tibetan political prisoners. They used to braid them using yak hair to send messages to each other. Or, THE message- Free Tibet.
I rarely comment but must say something about the woman here. The nature of my own day to day life means that I would usually look silly in heels and dressy clothes, so I especially appreciate seeing her on this site. I love how relaxed and comfortable she looks in her clothes, which are still interesting and chic. That’s exactly what I aspire to in terms of style.
