On the Street…..Knit Jacket, Florence

I love a knit jacket if for no other reason than how slim the sleeves can fit.

A slim cut sleeve drops 10 pounds off any guy in a suit.

    I saw a male stylist in a very similar 'cardigan' @ Paris Fashion Week. It had a matching chunky navy 'snood' which also gave a very slim and luxe look. x

    He looks great. Simply but luxury chic!

    I definitely agree…not to mention the comfort of less bulk.

    Great jacket!

    I'm normally not such a big fan of cardies, but this is more like a knitted blazer. Very chic. Love the dark blue, too.

    I would be delighted to own a feminine version of this jacket!

    "A slim cut sleeve drops 10 pounds off any guy in a suit."

    Ain't that the truth.

    Same for a woman btw. (Jil Sander's jackets…perfection)

    Woah, I need his jacket for the hot days!

    OH! That jacket is so exciting! knit fabric! so unexpected! I'd love to see someone in a head-to-toe knit suit. I've never actually seen knit trousers before, though….

    I've only been in Florence for six months, but one of the first things I noticed is how much more creative and amazing their knitwear is! I bought way too many sweaters…

    Lovely shot. Just for the record, though, the jacket's crocheted, not knitted. It looks as if it IS entirely handmade — the original work of a doting mother with a mean crochet hook?

      Yes, its correct – this blazer is crocheted, and fully handmade, stitches on edges done backwards. Somebody with great attention to details and shape made this piece. REALLY WELL DONE! Bravo!
      and, as always, nice shot, and hot guy!

    Great jacket. I have a similar knitted jacket which is double breasted with gold buttons. I love it!

    I wish I could have this one, I'm a sucker for navy + double breasted. Also if in cotton I think they're great way to keep a tailored look in the summer heat. You can just throw them in the machine.

    Ohhho, when I was young I had one almost the same, didn´t know it was a guy jacket:)

    Is this really knit? Looks like crochet from what I can see.

    I think I'd like this better if his shirt was different underneath. It's a bit too casual for me.

    True about the 10 pounds.
    Love the image, and that guy looks great.

    love that scarf thing hanging, out of place, but awesome…

    Slim sleeves is defiantly an effective diet, exactly the reason why this guys shouldn't be having such slim sleeves, he looks waaay too skinny, other than that though, it is certainly a nice outfit.

    it's a sweater and it looks far too small for him. and slim cuts only make slim people look slim. they make large men look like they're stuffed into a burrito wrapper. don't generalize based on what works on skinny folk.

    More polished than a pull-over and more relaxed than a wool blazer. So yes, more is more. This man's in great shape. I like.

    i never thought of that. but i only think about girl stuff anyway, that is why i love to look at your photos – i learn something every time.

    and it is a fantastic jacket. very unique.

    One can only wish to grow up with such simple elegance, subtlety and class. The check scarf adds a touch of quirk.

    You have to be really thin to pull this off… he looks fantastic and the fit is amazing, I completely agree with the sleeves I recently had all my suits modified for slimmer sleeves once Scott pointed it out "they're made so they fit everybody with fat wrists". This wide cuff thing is going too far. BTW look at the shoulders that jacket is really well made, the shape is a wonder to look at.

    But, what do you do when your elbows make little pockets on your arms that make the sleeves look frumpy?

    Uhhmmm…KNITWEAR. I love it each day more.It's a mix of luxury and simplicity,comfort and -some times- discret elegance.It takes me to the pictures of the times between the two world wars(self-made and poverty but also Chanel and Sciaparelli).It was yesterday – my childhood – when my mother made me so many sweaters.
    I agree with Misantropic Pulp opinion's.

    Gorgeous jacket! I have an old black Ralph Lauren sweater blazer and I wear it constantly. I like everything he is wearing – his jeans, t-shirt, and plaid scarf are all beautiful. It's a fantastic casual but elegant look.

    you know i love stuff like this but never wear it because by the end of the day it's 3 inches longer and the sleeves are stretched out beyond my knuckles

    fresh on him though, good look

    The best part is the tartan scarf poking out at the bottom. Almost like an 18th-century army officer's sash.

    I know this guy, he's the owner of a male boutique in Bologna. This jacket though is nothing compared to the one Cipriani proposed in his spring/summer collection this season….

    Top notch.

    The side pockets kicks up the waist nicely too.

    I have to concur that this lovely jacket isNOT knitted, it is indeed crochetted. I'm not being picky here… there is a big difference between the two crafts (retailers constantly get it wrong).

    I totally agree this is a very flattering style. The thin sleeve makes the armhole very high which visually lengthens the waist making the guy look taller and slimmer. This is why the British cut of tailored jacket is so flattering, because the armhole is cut high.
