    green makes a wonderful neutral, and I'm a big fan of it with black.

    Is the gentleman on top Tobey Maguire? If, so I'm glad to see he has traded in his baggy attire for something more appropriate.

    Green, the stylish way. Subtle and so so chic.

    I especially like the second photo, with the man in the green tee-shirt. He has a wonderful haircut. His pose is great. The sockless shoes are cool. The shadows and the bike make for a wonderful photo!

    Sorry, grean is subtle and chic? Since when? The bottom pic isn't bad, but all green is just a bit too St. Pat's day.

      I am sorry but I am a fan of Green in a gentleman’s wardrobe…
      Green in khaki/olive/army and alikes are a completely different game from the emerald green of a Paddy’s outfit
      Second picture perfectly epitomize it

    Green shirt with black bottoms and bicycle looks so universal,timeless.

    LOVE this outfit.

    the jacket on top looks gorgeus.
    I like that kind of green. It looks very maskulin and calm I think.

    I hope every place "goes green"- it's a color which seems to me to have been largely "missing" in fashion for some time. I'd love an olive suit, but haven't seen one in 20 years. It looks good here, particularly the bottom photo.

    TOP does resemble a st. patricks getup. is he carrying a green-hued photograph?

    BOTTOM if dude was wearing socks….. does fashion require sweaty, smelly, uncomfortable feet?

    I'll ever tire of the Persol sunglasses pictured in top photo. Designed 50 years ago, it is one of the few frames that is both iconically timeless and modern.

    I love the dress shoes with no socks! (or perhaps he's wearing below the ankle socks hidden by the shoes?) In any case, I think its a nice way to transition black, dressy shoes for a casual summer day. If only guys in the US would dress like this…so timeless, effortless and chic!

    yeah I agree with Eric, the fellow in the first picture does look uncannily like Tobey Maguire all spruced up…and the guy with the bike looks a teensy bit like a rugged version of Adam Levine (of Maroon 5), the haircut especially.

    cool picture, btw, it fairly captures the kind of light Milano has these days.

    Flashback to college chemistry! the green suit meant it was Wednesday – every single Wednesday, all semester… at 8:00 am, too! Dr. Mauer's hour of power… Now if this gentleman had taught the class, I'd have brought my cup of coffee and paid attention.

    I love the green t-shirt in the second photo, but not nearly as much as I like the twist of the cyclist parked on the bike rack and the bike in the middle of the sidewalk.

    Yes, that´s Manuel Frei from Germany´s
    GQ, I worked with him for several years. He´s got style, this is one of his more subdued outfits – check him out with pink socks, green knit tie and brown jacket! Unfortunately, there are few guys in germany who dress that well…

    Have been doing green in my clothes for the last two or three years and it is always amazing how people react to it – they come up and ask where I got the green item I will be wearing, even if they have seen it on me before in another colour. I can never have enough green sweaters or t-shirts and have been searching for the perfect fitted green linen jacket for ages (preferably in moss green)

    A few of us at the office have taken to wearing our shoes sockless this summer. We get kidded all the time about our smelly, sweaty shoes. I guess it's a look that comes with a price. Sure gets alot of attention though. Definitely worth it!
