On the Street….Jacques, Florence

I love the modern and unPreppy manner in which Jacques wears his seersucker suit.

I also love how the color complements his hair perfectly.

    hair disheveled, he
    recalled places to be; lax,
    but on time, arrives,

    caring little for
    jaunty unironed pockets.
    a welcoming smile.

    Fantastic! Seersucker can seem way out of date but he succeeds at somehow bringing it up to date…elegantly.

    What an attractive gentleman! I guess it's because he looked so comfortable and relaxed. The take away lesson for me is that a man does not have to be a beefcake to be masculine and sexy…just have self-confidence. His whole carriage, his sense of style, and his killer smile! Uh…melting!

    How can a seersucker suit ever be "unpreppy"? Doffing the striped web belt is not enough.

    One day, this will be a great vintage photograph, because it has the components of unstudied, nonchalance which is a common trait of all the vintage photos you feature.

    "unPreppy manner"..Exactly! This is how you wear a seersucker suit.

    when people start to go grey..they make the mistake of reaching for black apparel..
    when they should reach for white.
    it adds colour to the face…suntanned or not.

    nothing more elegant than an impeccable white shirt.

    love the no tie look.

    Another brilliant Sarorialist discovery. Fantastic. Thank you. The suit itself is worth a comment–unlike most of its kind, this one is positively sleek, the antithesis of the baggy-ass, preppy-doofus seersucker suits that seem to be available (at least off the rack/peg). Is this superb suit Italian? Fellow Sartorialists: does anyone have any idea where I might find something similar?

    What one must learn and appreciate of Italians, and a fundamental rule of style, is that one must feel comfortable and wear the clothes, the clothes should not wear YOU…

    ..I am an American living abroad for years now , and indeed it is embarrassing how so few know anything of style it seems.

    The celebrities people clamour for appear like nothing more than kids playing dress up at a highschool prom!!

    I agree with above, all too many in the US and UK age horribly…eat so much junk I believe and do not exercise is key and all too common.

    Of course not the rule, but all too common.

    I adore English men’s classical dress and sartorial expertise and style however..

    ..Italians got it from them and with the Italian artistic heritage, warmth, and heart you have perfection.

    I enjoy this site. It is a pleasure.

    Kind regards from Firenze.
