    I like the way he matches the stripes. And the blue so matches the colour of his eyes.

    Luca is a feast for the eyes. I like the mix of neutrals and colors – the blue shirt/tie/gloves picking up the blue in his eyes, and the purple just works… stripes mixed with plaids… I feel visually sated.

    Please make Luca appear on my computer screen every morning. Le sigh.

    Hi father’s suit looks to me to be perfectly fitted. And as a woman, I’m taking inspiration from those blues mixed with the brick red.

    Thanks for this post. It’s nice that it runs in the family. They both have great individual style.

    Oh my god! He looks fantastic! The colours, the patterns, somehow – his attitude probably – he manages it to look casual and stylish, not like a clown…He totally has his father style, quite redefined of course, and some unbelivable eyes…man, that is such a piece of art!

    What a beautiful suit, cut from lovely cloth. Very well accessorised (with the exception of the cellphone..). This gentleman looks very fine.

    It’s funny, because when I was younger I was a complete tom-boy..growing up with ALL boys around me for the longest time. My mom [whom has the best sense of style of anyone I have EVER known] would curl my hair and put gloss on my lips and I would cry ‘I don’t want to lookkkk like you!’…but just the other day I walked briskly by a mirror on the wall…and I had to do a double take! It turns out I am more like my mom than I ever thought I would be. I thinks its an honor to possess the sense of style and keen eye for fashion that she does. It looks like Luca is the same way. Bravo Luca!

    Yeah, why not? Isn’t it carnival times?

    Father reflects true Italian elegance that, you will be surprised to hear, resided in Naples.

    Anyway, they own a fantastic shop in Via dei Mille. Very old fashioned even in the forniture. But absolutely worthy.

    I want to BE them–and I’m a woman.

    What I mean is that I want to be dressed in a way that exudes/conveys/telegraphs this type of glamour, style, confidence, attitude.

    Its like they have it all together; they’re in charge; they know what’s going on; but they still know how to have fun and indulge their tastes and whimsies.

    Ah, the adventurousness of youth! That said, underneath the plaid coat and the hat Luca is really working the same classic look as Mariano.

    Great style from both generations.

    Both of them very good. Since I’m in the Mariano age group obviously his get up has more appeal. It’s outstanding of course…I’m not one of the fans of brown shoes with blue suits but because they are really dark he gets away with it. Just. And all those guys who think you can wear pale tan shoes with blue suits…don’t…you look as if you’re managing a team of ladies of the night. Basically this is how all men over 35 aught to look when they are wearing a suit. Unfortunately only a small minority do as you can see when you have a wander around NYC. But at least they have a role model.

    Luca has it going on – the way that he presents himself is spot on!

    Check out the fresh cotton/linen bucket hat – I’m going to have to steal Luca’s thunder on this one and give it a kick.

    I LOVE the pairing of stripes with plaid & vibrant color. I have been trying to master this myself recently. I commend any man that can pull this off with such flair.

    cheers to you Luca.

    Both of them look absolutely great. I love the color of the father’s suit — it’s not that almost black Navy blue that’s so prevalent in the US. It’s a little brighter, more interesting and more flattering. What is that bit of red around his wrist? It looks good in the photo, but I’m afraid it’s one of those rubber charity bracelets.

    Where does Luca get such wonderful gloves?!? And scarf, and coat and . . .

    Thank you for your images. What dreams they all seem to be.

    Molto bello!!! I’m very proud that you actually put his father’s pic, too, since it’s from Napoli. Ppl always think South Italy is the worst part of Italy. But, hey, if U never been there, U should….beautiful food, great friendly ppl, the scenery, everything. Even Napolitan in the US are so friendly and charming. They know how to cook, especially the men. BRAVO!!!

    Luca is hot but Mariano is owning it! let’s look in young Luca in about twenty years. His pops is hot. by the by, Luca should hope that his dad’s tailor has offspring who will be able to produce such beautiful work. a good tailor is hard to find.

    finally a classic suit with pants of the proper length – not those silly ones which reveal the socks even when one is standing straight.

    Mariano, definitely Michael Gambon in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Great tailoring and he owns the suit, the suit does not own him!

    Wish more of that color and style (or quality of tailoring) was more prevalent in the US.

    Simply put, I’d sport Luca’s look everyday and not get tired of that. Love the tie, especially.

    I am curious what kind of material Luca’s tie is made from to allow the ruching of the not like that. I love the contrasting fabrics; I can almost feel the texture.
