    Interesting how the shorter cuffed trousers create a different silhouette. Somehow it seems neater and more pulled together. Maybe a more youthful look. Italian men really pay attention to their footwear. Years ago everyone of them was wearing a brown shoe. Think these guys look great. Will keep my eye out for them when I'm in town!

    This picture really recalls August Sander – was this on purpose?

    I like these double breasted coats a lot. Black is a wee bit boring, but this is Italian / Florentine tailored looks at their best. I am always amazed when I travel to other countries to see that there are real regional differences. People in SF dress differently from the people in NYC and in LA. People in Paris dress differently from the people in Deauville or Saint-Tropez. It is even clearer in Italy, where each region has its own style! (Compare where England where everyone dresses the same across the country – cf Vicky Pollard).

    Beautiful lines here. They're both so slick and minimal, and everything they're wearing fits and looks fantastic. (I love the combination on the right in particular: striped shirt, plaid pants, suede dress shoes, with that immaculately fitting coat).

    I am normally not a fan of cuffs in men's pants, but I have to say this is the first time that I see them being pulled off successfully and with panache to boot. And huge points to them both for showing their socks with gusto.

    I would say both of these men have reached a peak of maximun "sprezzatura", as the Italians themselves call it.

    Clothing with solar panels on to regulate our temperature to suit, maybe a transparent section to allow us to still make Vitamin D3 in our skin, or, better yet maybe with a UVb LED in our clothes to make Vit D3.

    Rockport makes a similar suede shoe to that worn by the man on the right. Johnson & Murphy and others make similar shoe to the ones worn by the man on the left. Neither will run more than $150/pair. Style can be affordable. Perhaps the entire purpose of flood pants is to show off your expensive shoes. Unfortunately, if you're short, it makes you look shorter.
