On the Street…..Monoblue, Milan

I love this monochromatic use of blue; it’s the kind of look I would steal for myself.  The low scarf is a modern, sportier update to yesterday’s ascot.

    This is a great look but pay attention all you men out there …….. ALWAYS check that the fly zip is 100% UP at all times!

    Shades of blue worn together and knotted neck scarves- I love. This man is sexily, stylishly confident from head to toe. Also like that he is the only part in focus in this shot.

    I think both men & women look good in blue. Seems to be a color anyone can where. Nice shot.

    he is a charm or say head-turner…a lot thanks to his mustache say..he can certainly pull off any sunglasses with that babe.

    I’m not a big fan of total color looks but I have to say it does look good on him :)

    The definition of ‘seemingly effortless style’.
    I’m loving wearing monochrome at the moment. It really helps hide some faults/unwanted bulges as you start to get a little older.

    Is this the Italian version of a Canadian Tuxedo?

    Wow, that’s very nice. This is what I like – being fashionable but staying manly and sexy in the same time!

    Amazing ! I like it ! – fashion in the best quality in autumn and winter, spring and summer, 2011 or 2012 years. We have women’s and men’s collections / fashion videos.

    This photo and this man’s look are gorgeous, sporty (as you noted), and unique… and nicely accented by that cobalt in the background! I love the blue of his shirt and trousers — almost a mechanic’s uniform hue. The way men dress in Milan generally seems neatly calculated yet always evoking a comical element.

    I’m always a fan of monochrome outfits, this one is no exception. He looks so casually well -put together that it must have come out of the box like that.

    A grown male, looking stylish and hip, without visible tattoos or piercings, and without looking overdone. How refreshing.

    I really like it but didn’t Jean Paul Gaultier say “Le camaïeu, c’est l’ennui” ?

    You can find a great sock selection of elegant long socks at Nordstrom. Panterella, Nordstrom and John W. Nordstrom are the best

    One might consider him a janitorialist.

    If it isn’t impolite/ungentlemanly, could The Sartorialist please be so kind to reveal the identity of this man/object of a crush since first spotting him here some time ago? Some creative field, surely? How many men can where whiskers this length and still look utterly GORGEOUS, though without looking like he’s spent too much time on his appearance ?! I love these blues together.
