    Did he really just came back from the Gym?
    Looking really dapper. Haha.

    Gym perfection…. but on closer inspection…. are those gym shoes? I don’t think so. Maybe he went to a yoga class in which case he wouldn’t need a proper sneaker. The bag doesn’t look gym-y either…. Hmmmm…. This dude did NOT just come from, nor is he on his way to the gym, Dr. Watson! He is a workout impostor!

    I can’t decide whether It’s like the ultimate in lounge wear or athletic at it’s chicest… Either was it’s exquisite!

    Sweats. Even in Milan it seems, sweats are still sweats.

    It is natural and expected that an Italian would look smashing even going to the gym…

    i like this. the material of gym wear but cut like day wear. a nice example of casual elegance.

    Hmm. What’s the story here? He’s not wearing athletic shoes, and he’s carrying a briefcase and what looks like a shopping bag, so although he looks like he’s coming from the gym at first glance, maybe not. I love the overall balanced proportions of his combination, which the thick scarf helps. I kind of wish I could figure out if this is an athletic look or not.

    his scarf and the way he used it is absolutely fab.

    great picture! very creepy.

    its amazing how much the scarf adds to this outfit!

    inspiring. i love how people could turn dowdy gym clothes into something chic, like what McCartney has done for adidas – but this guy takes it one step further, he turned some plain sweats into an outfit!

    Must be cold there, that scarf is wrapped up pretty good. Love the gym bag. xo

    one of the things I always do when going to the gym is take a grey tshirt and tie it like a scarf. Then I pair it with a half-zip sweatshirt….Don’t know if I would muck up a nice looking cardigan like this, though (I sweat up a storm!). haha.

    nice colors but the scarf worries me, all I can think is of the Padaung women who put rings on their necks to make them longer and immobile. I’m chocking right now.

    those pants look surprisingly flawless on him
    I love how more and more men are carrying leather bags.

    I love the proportions here. It keeps the look streamlined- without the scarf and the bag, this look wouldn’t have ‘it’. Well, and the beautiful lighting… but that wasn’t brought to the table by him, Sart.

    First, Great title for the picture, not too many people use dandy to desribe gentleman anymore, but I still do. Also, it seems to me that Italian men don’t really use pashmina scarves,they tend to go for cotton, what material was his scarf?

    Yay, someone who is dressed like me: wear pants that look like track pants with shoes that look like sneakers, but are not!! It's reaaly cool. D&G does this a lot. He elevates it very well with the scarf: this dude was NOT going anywhere near a gym with this outfit, you wear this to go shopping or going for lunch.

    I hope he really just came from the gym. I’m not into the whole gym wear worn as casual wear thing. Even though it looks better with the scarf etc, I still think it’s a bit sloppy.

    A totally chiced-out gym look. His scarf looks like a luxe towel wrapped around his neck. His “sweat pants” appear to be cashmere. His bag and shoes are leather? And of course grays always look so refined and easy. Well done signore!

    Cashmere sweat pants?? Freshly showered from the Gym…on the way to through back a pint? I can see it!

    The ominous background provides the perfect lighting to highlight the outfit. The powder grey and slate blue have the same intensity as the objects in the background, most notably the crossing path which gives a slight grunginess to the outfit. Excellent fit and very reminiscent of Polo’s match collection.

    Not feeling the boots, love the scarf though. Is that a B.Son sweater? I have one in black that looks very similar.
