    The yellow and blue in the second shot is unexpected and subtle. Lovely.

    The way this man puts everything together is so inspiring. Each detail is thought out and clearly loved; if we all dressed with such care the world would be a better place!

    Do wish he was showing some cuff…but, eh, who am I kidding, Beppe's so cool he can just pull it off!

    This guy looks and dresses almost exactly like my godfather, except he doesn't wear glasses.

    I really love his color combos. Especially the yellow with the orange and blue shirt….you can tell he's really working with what is in his closet, not just buying whole looks from a store….what else would you expect from him!

    Fantastic how much the overall look changes even with the same suit. The stripes kind of reflect the colours of the other elements, so he makes them look darker or brighter just by changing shirt, tie and accessories. Lovely colour sensibility I think.

    These images suggest he'd be elegant, shrewd and charming.

    Wow, a tattersall shirt with a pinstripe. I love the combination, and the brown tie which matches the pinstripe. I also love the second shot, with a bold shirt and bold stripe, the tie this time matching the shirt. This is less conservative and more powerful as a statement.

    Given the look in his eye and the swagger in his style, I'm guessing he wouldn't dig being called "cute" or "adorable." Dashing, perhaps…

    only in Italy do you find such attention to details in so many people, in everyday life. so not LA right? I was looking at my wardrobe and realized how it became more an more casual since i left Paris. gotta get back on tracks. and seeing a photo like this is inspiring. thank you.

    thoroughly enjoy seeing those wise ones born earlier (elderly is too condescending for this brilliance) express themselves in a seemingly effortless and age defying way. truly inspiring – gives me something to look forward to as my own years appreciate. please check out my blog !

    More men should really start wearing well-tailored suits like this gentleman's more often.
    And I think the perfect finish to a man's outfit is always in the details =).

    It struck me how all the women's comments were flattering. Men take note: it's not age but beauty that turns us women on. Beppe can give many a young one tips on how to win a woman's heart!A man who gives such attention to detail will surely know how to keep us happy!

    a clear example of nonsense of style in the 1st pic hee's got a country checkqured shirt with very elegant stripes jacket,in the second,the dots tie knock at the same with the over dree stripes,for me he dont look at one's in the mirror before going out……

    yes his style is obvious.
    but i like the fact that a person of his generation is comfortable texting!

  74. Brummagem Joe

    Breaks all the rules but he pulls it off. And wearing a small check shirt with a bold chalk stripe works fine. It's one of the most effective counterpoints in men's fashion. The second pic with roughly similar weight suit and shirt stripes is a closer call but the boldness of the tie and those small dots in a geometric pattern makes it all come together.

    Impeccable. As well as old-man style I think it's time for you to feature another sartorially neglected strata of street life; wino style. Today in London I saw a tall inebriate sporting a magnificent grey flannel chalk stripe double breasted jacket over ideally distressed jeans and a magnificent & authentic pair of vintage shoes. Also vintage were the bottles weighing down his DB jacket pockets to give the whole upper body the most individual drape and swing. Classic!
