    now this is a fabulous shot!

    LOVE the printed scarf on the gentleman in the background.

    the depth of field give the photo a whimsical feel.

    and, oh – the camel coat is, well, classic.

    Great picture- perfect example that the main difference between these bespoke and off-the-rack ones are the “just right” fit. Notice it around the waist and all along the sleeves; the arms in this coat are not even particularly high yet there is a clear definition between the sleeves and the torso, which elongates the figure. Great briefcase as well. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Very nice. I like this. i don’t like men in coats that come below the knee unless they are a Loden or a fur coat. Interesting suit pants and nice bag too. The gentleman behind sports a cool scarf. Looks like a beautiful morning in Florence!

    100% class.
    He has a vest? Or is that his suit coat?
    I also love the ’60s hippie psychedelic scarf on the otherwise very staid gentleman just behind him. Wonder what he was up to in 1968 ;)

    I love the scarf on the guy on the left – superconservative with multicolour paisley – lovely!

    if the face would have been as elegant as the rest…. this is the classic example where a well dressed man,can turn out to be not elegant, because, elegance cannot be bought!!!!!

    the camel coat is really nice, great cut…but I am more taken by the colorful scarf that the guy behind him is wearing. it’s gorgeous!

    What a beautiful coat! Very elegant! Are those trousers black (pinstriped) or gray?

    Hope to see you soon in Helsinki, Sart!!

    Best bit for me is the use of a pocket square in the coat breast pocket – if you going to wrap up and hide the suit jacket, why not continue to keep your stylishness visible.

    Awesome picture, the striped trousers, and camel bag. That coat is perfect. I like how stern the older Italians look.

    Is it a similar coat, the older wrestling or box champ wore last week in Firenze, isn´t it??

    Off: I saw your picture on the IHT for the Perfect Man Magazine. It is very classy.

    Beautiful classic and I love the added casual bag. The pants and shoes, however, remind me of a chef.

    Like someone said earlier, that scarf must have a big value to this guy. It might remind him of his first girlfriend of something like that, and it doesn’t matter how it looks. Looks great anyway.

    These guys look so tough*, like the guys in the “Napoleon” shot. I’m loving the scarf, it softens everything.

    *some very nice looking gentlemen share this quality of “you-really-don’t-want-to-mess-with-me”. It’s a no-nonsense look without all of the testosterone trimmings. This sounded much better inside my head.

    An earlier poster implied that the man in the camel coat couldn’t pull off “elegance” because he has an inelegant face.
    The excellent fit of the coat–over what is clearly a well-toned body–suggests to me that he wasn’t attempting to give off an air of elegance, but of virility. And he certainly has the face for that. But then I like a man with a certain ruggedness to his face.

    I LOVE the cut, style and color of that coat. That is one well put together man.

    Sexy!!! this man is hot, elegant is not the point here honey. Every item in his outfit screams the same thing, the boots, the pants, the bag the picking of his gloves in his left pocket, the gold watch!!! He is Mr. Gorgeous. And the guy in back is not doing so bad either for a fun sugar Daddy.

    The camel coat looks really good! I never had one but I will as soon as find mine. I curious if will match with long sleeve T-shirt. I’m not fan of Dress Shirt with coat.

    The fit of the pant is outstanding, loving the mix of texture beteween the coat and the clasic pattern of the pants. The handbag should not be ignored…!!!

    I hate to picky – ok, I don’t – but he’s done-up the wrong button. Maybe little details like that don’t matter… and maybe they do. For me, it just jars when I look at it.

    Just wow! Im sold, that’s it, im getting a camel coat! Another example of how right you were sart, indeed nothing matters more than the fit! For as long as I’ve seen camel coats here in Nyc, none looked so flawlessly ‘chique” on anyone I’ve seen (maybe not enough for me to have remembered nevertheless). Although this camel coat in picture seems to be a bespoke model, the fit to me is pretty insightful as to how a 1/4 lenght coat should look on someone. I love this to the utmost extent!

    Are they taught this kind of style from a young age? or is it just an osmotic process.

    The cut of the coat makes him look very Dick Tracy…
    I like the pinstripe pants.

    Not a fan of DB coats but this one work well, i like the pinestripe suit(i suppose) and the bag !
    Seems to be confident with himself.


  49. James

    He only has the bottom button of the DB coat buttoned. Is that how they are to be worn?

    I always through (perhaps incorrectly) that DB coats were buttoned all the way down.

    What a great coat! I liked how he wore them with pinstripe pants too.

    the length of the coat is perfect! Please note the pochette! wearing a pochette with a coat just makes a huge difference. also the length of his pants is super!

    Absolutely Fantastic Double Breasted Coat. One of classic and eponymous style.
    Very emulative of a traditional english style, especially that of HRH Prince Charles who is often seen wearing a double breasted full length coat in a Tweed.
    Although the camel goes extremely well with most things; especially the pinstripe trousers he is wearinng.
    Also, very classic ralph lauren image.
    But its totally admirable.

    Lovely cut but I think the supporting actor to his right is the real gem of this picture. Beautiful, bold paisley backed by the sky blue striped oxford shirt :) Great worldly swagger, too.

    I love the cut of his coat. His outfit is quite chic.

    I love the scarf from the guy in the back.

    ps – he’s cute.

    I'm not sure but I think he also wears an odd waistcoat. Quite elegant !
