    Would like to see his shoes….

    It's a perfect combination of colors, and I think the blue helmet it's an important part of this outfit.

    What a juxtoposition! Bookish frames, scruffy hair; military jacket, white chinos; teal blue helmet and french blue conservative oxford shirt; gold necklace, black leather necklace;…if only we could see his shoes! I wouldn't be surprised if he was wearing one black military boot and one brown penny loafer. ;) What I love the most…his look works!


    October 1, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    Love the colours together – so fresh but the khaki keeps it a little hard.
    Lose the ciggy please!

    Another take on the M-65 jacket / white pants combo.
    cool braided bracelet.

    This is the way men with style and attitude age in Italy. Being over 40 doesn't mean you have to be boring looking…also it doesn't mean you should wear teenager t-shirts and shorts!!! There is a balance.
    This gent is cool and it is not trying too hard to tell the world what he is. Remember, be yourself and dress accordingly!

    I love the jacket and the shirt with the white contrast of his chinos. I just picked up a nice blue shirt and a military style jacket myself but I didn't really think of combining the two until this shot. Great look!

    For some odd reason, this looks so much like Robert De Niro, younger and stylish.

    Great look.

    Mr. Hotness.

    I hope that's just weird color skewing and not lots of self-tanning cream. He'd be even hotter without it.

    Is Milan THE place on earth, or does this site just make it seem so?

    Wow, SO good! Today's lesson – how he's taken one quite ordinary military surplus store jacket and made look so hot ! Brilliantly captured, too.

    i hope my husband looks like this when he ages…. hot man!

    and what is the purple rope around his wrist? is it part of the sleeves or is it a bracelette?

  38. We will fight on the beaches....

    October 1, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    Its a real cool look, the cig even mathces his chinos and tan! The jacket is a great length, but 'caus it is so well fitted it must be quite restricting with the long sleeve of his shirt underneath. Not ideal for scooting around.

    I think he looks fun…like Peter Sellers.

    Why I like this look so much – precisely the combination of military green with light blue – that I recently bought myself (before I saw the photo) a very nice military style utility jacket from J-Crew. As for shoes, he's probably wearing desert boots, Clarke's or something similar

    The jacket is too small. This man should get the next larger size. Moreover, there is plenty of Italian military surplus on the market. There is no need to go with German surplus. – At least it wasn't East German surplus.

    That is a 70s/80s west German army jacket. They had a tailored cut and are made of moleskin. They came in dark olive but faded fast. One can find many copies of it but none matches the slim cut of the original. I don't like to wear it personally because I HAD TO wear it 15 months while learning bad things.

    This guy is definitely got the cool quotient. Good to see a cool, masculine, older guy. Something in his face reminds me of Dustin Hoffman, crossed with Steve McQuee. Style is more than trendy young things, fashion types, and older "gentlemen" in suits.

    I'm glad to see a look I wear a lot validified by this guy. (I don't do the helmet, cig, or bracelet, though–that's how I roll!) I do wear very similar frames though, and I'm at least as old as this guy, maybe older. Like somebody above me says, growing old does not have to mean boring.

    I love how his glasses frame his face very well. The blue and the white are a great combination on him and to top it off that jacket is so vintage looking.

    Style is the WAY we feel us. It's not about mixing the things as others do, copying or pseudo-simplifying. Style has the internal deep work.
    And fashion and whatever just make the Style works out.

    So this man seems to be an artist.
    The owner of some gallery, perhaps.
    He combines the most 'artistic' colors blue and white.
