    What a great candid shot. In the middle of movement. Love it. And that is a fantastic suit. His tortoise shell glasses are way nicer than my $5 ones:

    Hi Lapo!!! OMG you’re sexy. You have the look of a dangerous bad boy to stay away from. Who knows if it’s true but I can dream.

    Great! What is the brand of his sunglasses? I’d like to have the same one.

    When I see an elephant I don’t care about the combination of grey and ivory but in this case it takes me too long to decide if it is a nice combination or not.

    Loving the double breasted cream blazer, and the tortoise shell bins give him that steve mcqueen coolness but I think the grey polo is an error.

    I usually enjoy many of the combinations that Lapo comes up with. However, I am not too sure about the beige suit in Milan in February. This style would be perfect for Monte Carlo, especially with the tan and tortoise shell wayfarers.

    Great suit! Not sure about the button down collar polo sweaterwith the double-breasted, but then again, this is Lapo. More than acceptable, definitely not conventional. Always carefree. F**k the rules.

  51. Chan

    February 22, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    First time in a long time that I saw him wear an outfit I could remotely imagine wearing (even with the big collars). Too fashion forward for me otherwise.

    He looks so dapper!

    Love the look. So well placed in the Italian ambience. I don’t think it will look as well in San Francisco.

  56. Nick

    February 23, 2012 at 2:37 am

    Sorry, but for me is totally rejected!
    Maybe this could be fashion but NOT ( italian ) style.
    Lapo wear IN FEBRUARY and in Milan a beige “completo morbido”. Are you serious??
    In my opinion, style should be contrast and I don’t see any contrast in this pic.
    Rejected! Lapo please come back!

  67. Gigi

    February 23, 2012 at 9:58 am

    I’m not sure whether I like this or not. I keep looking… the fabric combination is odd and the suit fit seems off (maybe because he’s in motion). A very handsome man, though, so he’s making it look good.

  68. camy

    February 23, 2012 at 10:18 am

    He’s not so cool as he looks…believe me. Moreover his face is so burnt because of the too many sunlamps..definitely the worst!


    February 23, 2012 at 10:30 am

    Cool sunglasses.
    I don’t like the sweater beneath the Suite. Kinf of cheap solution.

    … there is a limit to ‘sprezzatura’ … no ? He is spending too much time with Luca Rubinacci and he’s gone too far on that one … Nice to see though that they are experimenting !

    This jacket seems to be the same as the one for the GQ shooting 4 years ago (just saw it in the history), which I love: it shows that Mr. Alkan owes his great style to an excellent flair and a good mastering of what fits him well.
    In one word: elegance, not fashion.

    funny to find in some comments such wrong a perception of what an Italian looks or should look. as you might know most people in Italy think Lapo is an ass, but never mind, good effort with the haircut, I guess. Cheap looking suit, although surely it is not. Suppose it takes all kinds! ;)

  111. initials AO

    June 19, 2012 at 9:22 am

    Like his grand-father, Lapo knows what the art of SPREZZATURA is. He’s stylish and elegant but nonchalant. Even if I think he sometimes goes too far… but still, we like his approach to style, probably in his DNA.

    initials AO tells you more about it via Lapo’s grand father example here:

    Hope one day the French (like us) will be more comfortable to play with style and take more risks at a larger scale.

    Bit of a Mickey Rourke vibe going on here.
    Those shades look like they were made specifically for that suit – they turn this from a great outfit into an awesome outfit.

    He looks great !!
