On the Street…..All in Blue, Milan

Even though this guy is dressed casually he still retains a bit of refinement with the tiny monogram on his shirt.

    Thousand pardons, Sart, but he looks refined all over.

    (But what an odd place to put a monogram!)

    I would have preferred a different shoe, not a fan of those trainers. But apart from that, perfect. And gorgeous!

    It surely helps that he’s good looking too. The shoes are a bit weird though, the sole does not make my plate…

    It’s a nice blue colour on his shirt. I really don’t like the way he has his sweater thou.

    I’ve never been a monogram guy but recently I began asking my tailor to eliminate his own label and instead put my monogram on the back inside collar of my shirts. I am really happy with the personalized effect.

    Effortlessly hot (and I get the feeling that he knows it). This is a look that might come off as a little dorky on a lesser man. He pulls it off with ease.

    It doesn’t hurt that he’s gourgeous and has Milan as a sexy backdrop.

    What a beautiful face and love the hair; with the shoes he clearly doesn’t take himself too seriously, yet overall he’s quite chic.

    Sporty shoes are best relegated to the gym. They have no place in an ensemble like this.

    I hate monograms. It used to be for big italian family, to know whose shirt belong to after it was washed. ’cause back in the days, at least in Italy, pret à porter didn’t exist, so everybody had shirt “su misura”. And the monogram was placed on a lower part than that. The part that was tucked in. Now it’s just so everyone can see it’s “sur mesure”. Or maybe people can’t remember there name.

    To an American I can see why this guy looks exciting – and granted, he’s good looking – but the hair, tan, overall look etc. isn’t that unusual in the Med, so if we just see him as a ‘normal’ guy (ignoring the European look) the clothes are really boring: nothing sartorial about those cheap shoes, nor the sweater around the waist.

    Love it all- down to his trainers! They appear to be HOGANS…if so, I have a couple pair and they are a dream to wear!

    Good Show!

    Can’t see precisely from the picture, but the shoes could be Hogan and the model is called Interactive. These are extremely popular in Italy, they are not at all sport shoes and cost in the US around $400 in Milan €250.

    Concerning the sweater the problem is that in the spring if you are already out in the morning the temperature is quite chilling, but by noon it would be quite hot until late afternoon, so you always have to figure out what to do with sweaters and jackets.
    The solution is a classic, in the evening there is the on the shoulder version, but I consider it quite nerdy and old fashion.

    This way is more casual and unmistakebly Italian.

    Overall the look is very typical and I think a good example how people dress in Italy.

    The point is that it seems simple, but this is the strenght of Italians sense of fashion. Not really extravagant, but worked out up to the little details.

    PS: Italians do have mothers that worry a bit too much so the sweater might be also an effect of that. They would not let you out of the house if you do not take it with you.

    Honestly, he looked great here. But on a lesser looking man, it would just look untidy.

    Sorry, this is where I disagree with you. His gorgeous look distract us all from what he’s wearing.

    Love the seams on the jeans. Great touch.

    Not a fan of the shoes, but I echo the others: he could wear a pink parka and still stop traffic.

    yes he is very handsome but what i was really noticing was how slim the leg of his jeans were.

    I wear outfits like this all the time but i wish the leg of my Levi’s 501′s were as slim as these and everyone knows my difficult with the APC jeans.

    Anyone have a guess on who makes the jeans?

    They look like Diesel to me, if you notice the exterior stitching of his front right pocket.

    I must say a lot of Milanese men look like him, with the same hair, usually pulled back with a head band. My Milanese friends in NY dress like him also, it’s very typical, and when you see it up close, it looks very chic. And their jeans are usually Diesel.

    It’s all too casual.
    And I don’t like the jacket around the waist-style.
    And he should lose that cigarette in his hand!!

    But I do like the streets of Milan. ;)

    Somettimes you really do have a knack for showing true style but this guy is a case of being SO unbearably good-looking that he could be wearing an Uncle Fester frock and still look smashing.

    There’s chic and then there’s just plain old pretty.

    Sart, your quest for the perfect pair of jeans reminds me of an episode of Will & Grace where Will wore a pair of women’s jeans with the perfect tappered legs.

    These shoes are not my cup of tea cause, as you may know, this type hogan hid an thick sole to make you look taller and that’s awful. period. beside they’re definetely not a shoe you can use in the gym! they are a weekend shoes for the wannabees not-chic at all.

    as for the monogram: I have put then on some shirts also to distinguish them from those of my father when we make the shirtmaker make two samples with the same tissue (in case we both like it). the best place should be a hidden one.

    I think the shoes and the sweater tied around his waist really let him down. Surely a very sexy man, but worthy of the Sartorialist I’m not sure…

    From what I can see the jeans look very much like my Filippa K jeans or a pair of Acne. They do sell outside Sweden, but I’m not sure if they can be found in Italy.

    in response to the comment that he looks like milanese men in new york: that makes sense. i lived in italy for a year and his style is very typical italian. (and, i think, quite sexy). i can picture him hopping on his moped and then chain smoking cigarettes over aperativos with similarly-dressed guys at a bar with free food at 5pm.

    In all my years I have never seen a guy that looks sooooo… sexy and the fact he’s in Milan makes him even more tempting. I wonder if his single, I like his contraposto pose and his serious, cool, sexy look he has but he’s got to lose the shoe and the blue shirt is very classic. Overall he looks Perfectoooo!

    Very Italian very cool, disagree about his looks, put your thumb over his face so you can just see the body without the face and still looks very good, great shirt high collar ads to character of the look
