    He is stunning! The chartreuse tie really looks great against the blue shirt. That bike makes a great accessory too! Gotta love the orange!

      public bikes in Milan called “bikeMi”. You can rent them all over the city. Walk up to the bike rack, put money in the machine to unlock it, return it later

    He's very handsome! I also love that we for the most part have embraced the changes in men's hairlines. It's attractive to see the opposite of the comb-over. Because it's accepting who one actually is, it's downright foxy!

    "Why yes," he said to the person looking down from the window, "I am indeed about to ride this bike while wearing this suit."

    His mighty chartreuse necktie, he realized, gave him the power to laugh off all naysayers.

    Dang! That sure is a mighty fine outfit. Trust Luca's skill and effort to make the tailoring look so 'effortlessly' perfect, and make double-breasted and large labels look so right on a slim build.

    And trust Milan to make form and function look so great in a perfect city bike, when London can hardly match either with the black Boris Barclays bike.

    Must get to Milan one day soon. Bravissimo!

    I just got back from Milan and there were so many people in full suits riding bicycles! I don't know how they do it without sweating like crazy.

    I agree he looks good, but am surprised nobody mentioned the combination of loafer with a suit–double breasted, no less. Personally, I save the loafer for more casual dress, but you can't argue with the overall presentation…
