Lino in GQ plus Out-Take

This is one of my all-time favorite shots of Lino.
It appeared in July GQ but I wanted to make sure it had a home here also.
To me it is the very essence of Milanese style.

I loved this shot but I guess the page just isn’t big enough for two Lini (the plural of Lino)

    I don’t know if anyone has recently seen the new Dos sequis commercials, but this guy reminds me of that guy. He brings cool to a new level.

    I love these photos the first time I saw them on July’s GQ.

    Love what he’s wearing, but his hair is dangerously close to Trump combover territory! Hopefully this man is too stylish to let that happen.

    looks like people are smoking again.

    honestly, scott, don’t you get the weird the feeling that the cigarette is massively coming back as fashion accessory?

    What kind of bracelets is he wearing?

    Is that second shot a light blue blazer, navy blue pants and brown suede loafers?

    Killer! Absolutely killer.

    And if that’s how all men in Milan dress then excuse me while I visit my travel agent.

    It appears that he is on a crusade to bring back the double breasted jacket. It shows that if you wear something well tailored and with confidence it can work. It also helps that he is fit and trim.

    Great photos! He is certainly an interesting looking gentleman. It is curious to me that he leaves unbuttoned both his DB suit jacket and shirt cuffs! The hair is much too long though, I agree.

    This guy sure does love his Audemars Piguet watches too. Thats the second one he’s been photographed with

    I love this gentleman’s style: he is carries the open double brested jacket so well–I wonder if his are tailored in a slightly different manner to accomodate this. Also, he seems to be wearing both a wristwatch and a watch chain–does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    nice shots.
    I like the first pic with the blurry background.

    He’d be a lot cooler without all those tobacco-induced wrinkles. ATL.

    Why do people make such a big deal about people smoking? People smoke, it’s a fact! Deal with it.

    I don’t smoke! Never have, never will. But I do not think it is my place to tell others how to think or act and I am not going to criticize someone else for how they choose to live their life.

    And this is not directed at someone particular in this thread, simply a response to an overall theme and the fact people are going back and removing cigarettes/smoking from pictures and movies. LAME. So do not write back to me, I am not going to read it. Like I said, I do not smoke and do not like to be around smokers. But I am not overly sensitive and if someone wants to do something to and with themselves, more power to you. That is the beauty of life.

    And Lino is a hero, a purely confident man who looks beautiful is every picture I see.

    he looks quite smashing in photo #1!

    This man is so cool, that the cigarette smoking is forgivable.

    He’s also got the coolest lapels. He’s the kind of cool that if he told me what I was wearing was horrible I would go inside and change immediately.

    Love the 2 1/2″ pants cuff rather than the 1 1/2″

    great shot Sart

    Unbuttoned cuffs? What’s with that?

    It appears that doth protest too much, non-smoker. For someone who wants people to live and let live, you seem awfully adament about making sure people conform to your opinion.

    Anyhow, I’m new to this site so I’m not sure what the story is with Lino, but I obviously need more training because I’m not sure of the appeal. However, it is also clear that I need to spend more time in Milan.

    Love the fact that he does not button the shirt sleeve cuffs – it just adds to his style…

    Great if it weren’t for the Trumpy hair and the cigarette. I see a cigarette and I think “bad breath.” Not attractive.

    One of the few times I have seen DB look good unbuttoned. He is able to carry it off with his natural style.

    Incredible Style, agree with hair comments, too long, too close to look like a cheap comb… so please cut it a little Lino! Maybe in Armani’s style a clue.
    I saw this picture in July’s GQ, I think is more style than every other picture in magazine (except maybe for that Japanese soccer player)
    Great blog, first visit, I’ll comeback daily.
    BTW, I don’t speak german, so it has taken my years to figure out how to post…

    One Q however: In the first pic what kind of tie knot is this? I like the volume combined with the asymmetry!!

    Undoubtedly a stylista. When I went to Al Bazar I noticed he always wears a smirk, which in my opinion completes his style (as you can totally tell he knows what he is doing)

    I think I stgurgle with Shabby and Vintage though I enjoy seeing other’s efforts there. I don’t know when to stop I guess and move into the embellishment jar exploded on this card’ mode.
