    Very elegant look, but I detect much inspiration from the 1992 film: the Lover set in the French Indochina of the late 1920′s.

    , a French teenage girl embarks on a reckless and forbidden romance with a wealthy, older Chinese man, each knowing that knowledge of their affair will bring drastic consequences to each other. The gentleman in the photo actually looks like the male protagonist Tony Kai Fai Leung. That siad, a beautiful and evocative picture.

      I agree: I immediately thought of “L’amante”, which is one of my favorite films. A very intense shot, so evocative of a time gone by.

    Striking for being out of place. Too much like a costume for me.

    I don’t even have to look at the location of the photo when there’s a man in a well fitted suit. It’s always Italy ! Bravo to the Italians .

    Beautiful. Classic attire done right. The umbrella sells it but not the way you think it does. Thank you old chap.

    White suits are perfect for summer and always it’s a great way to look so stylish!

    Love the timelessness of this photo! If it weren’t for the roller bags in the background, it would definitely look like it was taken in another era. And what a smart dresser! XO, Janea

    I have a reproduction of the pink hat the young woman in the film wore. I so love“Le chapeau de ‘Ardeur”. The movie was hauntingly sensual. I loved it … Great photo, thanks for sharing!!!

    He seems to have lost the film crew in the crowd.

    Would be so much better without the waistcoat.

    As a sartorial exercise,superb,but as a street style possibility, pompous and out of this time and reality.Not everyone just for the fact of being in Florence and around the Fortezza at Pitti epitomizes style with their looks.Pitti proposes but streets decide what style is.

      “Pitti proposes but street decide what style is”, man, that’s BS, they are different types of style and each to his own. The guy is elegant and the outfit is timeless, there is nothing pompous about his demeanour unlike the sprezzaturas we see strutting around Pitti…

    is he coming from Hollywood? he reminds me of a movie I just don’t remember the name of it

    Has a whiff of Tom Wolfe going on. He’s someone obviously not timid about making a statement. I applaud his effort.

    The minute I saw the image I thought of The Lover… So elegant!

    So many made comments about Italian man in double-breatested suit with a straining button – now we have a perfectly fitted waistcoat (with just one insouciant button undone) and people jump on him for being out of time and pretentious! If he took off the waistcoat, yes, he’d be wearing all white, but no-one would or could say he was ‘out of time’. And why has no-one admired the ‘flower’ of his kerchief – a perfectly chosen finishing touch. here’s a man who loves being well-dressed and pays for it, but perhaps he’s just still growing into how to feel truly comfortable with himself in all that wonderful finery. If Scott has made him smile or laugh… different story, different reaction perhaps.

    Dapper and epic at the same time, summer linen wore with style.
