    I like the details: the bow-tie, the red sockettes and the gold of his notebook. They work well with the neutrality of his suit.

    aside from the beard, he looks like a little boy attending a wedding. Very sweet, aside from the dodgy sock choice.

    ankle up, yes, beautifully suited. love the stripe of his suit and bow tie but i feel this man needs less serious shoes and better socks to match his playful attire.

    I have always wondered why there are no short-sleeved jackets for this look? Always looks a bit top-heavy. Otherwise, likes.



    September 2, 2010 at 10:50 am

    Wow, this is a different look. A suit with shorts and red socks with patent brogues. He works it though! Let's not forget the bow tie! x

    It's so elegant, but the short pants make it look more relaxed.

    I don't like the beard, but the rest of him is really good-looking ;)

    This photo is perfect. His outfit makes me feel like he owns some magical ice-cream store or that he'll burst out into a broadway song or begin reciting poetry from his book. Classic – loving his red socks bowtie and beard combination especially :)

    What I particularly love about this outfit is the high shine of the shoes (I'm assuming they're patent, but he could be so good as to be able to give them a spit shine himself).

    Being able to polish your shoes is a terribly underrated talent.

    Such a great pic ,as always.Really fantastic.I absolutely adore the way the shorts ads that touch of freshness for the summer and at same time they are a declaration of his irreverence towards the vigent men's fashion establishment.
    He nearly blends himself with the surrounding colours, in an almost chamaleonic way to go without being noticed but at same time the sauciness of the socks, the lenght of his pants and the glossy shoes turn him in a statement of elegance, which can not go ignored.

    Nice to see a return to cleanliness. Very nice shoes, but the schoolboy shorts and jacket – while nice on their own – do not combine to make a good look. I would like pair of full length pants and jacket in the same color and fabric (seersucker?), but no bow tie. That said, the gentleman still looks like a gentleman and ceryaoinly exudes friendliness, polite manners and approachability.

    This man looks like he could be a professor, or a scientist with a knack for fashion. I'm not so sure the red socks are working, but it definitely makes for an interesting look. I do, however love the bow tie, and it's not every day you see a man in a shorts suit, so he gets at least ten points for originality.

    How charming – and practical.

    I have been wearing this look for about 5 years now – I buy summer weight ( seersucker, etc) suits at thrift stores and then simply cut off the pant legs, and then accessories as appropriate for whatever occasion I am dressing for.
    I call them my 'mini suits'

    He looks like Pee Wee Herman… except this guy's serious about his look. I'm not feeling the shorts, but with long pants, he would look amazing. The beard and glasses are terrific and the shoes are great as well. I just think the look is forced—just to enough to seem costumey.

    Pinstriped, pastel shorts suit… Bowtie… glasses… Brogues and birght red ankle socks…? I am in love with this Milanese maestro. It takes someone with serious style to go for a look this 'out there' and pull it off without looking ridiculous, self-conscious or just plain stupid. This guy doesn't give a damn about trends, season, weather or what anyone else thinks. He is an inspiration to us all. X

    The hem on the shorts could have been finished better. It seems to me he cut his long pants down.

    The suit/short combo highlights how difficult it is to match with the right proportion of sock and shoe. Short socks work on this guy.

If you change the shoes for a nice pair of loafers would make a great diference! Socks with short pants? Never, please!

    The outfit is cute… but lets be serious.. he may be able to pull the shorts off in Milan… but in Spain it would be a definate " What is he doing?¿?¿" … errrr NO!!
    I´m sorry I just don´t like men in suit shorts!!

    Love your photos though… fantastic!!…

    The button exists on a shirt collar band for a purpose; it was meant to be buttoned ("Never a button without a buttonhole," Coco Chanel). A buttoned collar, however, requires impeccable fit. When a bespoke shirt is buttoned there is nothing more chic.

    This is gorgeous! He's a combination of a schoolboy and an office worker. Stylish and sharp. Love the gold book – could it be a moleskine? The red marker off his hand luggage matches his socks, smart thinking.

    His look definitely makes for an interesting photo but overall I find his look a tad on the absurd side. I'd have to file this under 'trying too hard'.

    The shoes&shorts combo just won't work for me x) I think it cuts off some of the elegance,yet the patern of the outfit and his face are absolutely worthy of applause.

    I appreciate this look, though I don't like it personally, if that makes any sense. Something about the bare legs looks incongruous with the rest of the outfit. The fit of the jacket is perfect. Love the bowtie. And the red shoes!!!

    I remember Yohji Yamamoto and Matsuda doing these shorts suits in the late 80s. (One of them even had a short sleeved jacket!) I thought it looked pretty awkward then, and I'm still not convinced now. To me it's counter-intuitive. I'd probably be more inclined to remove my jacket and roll up the sleeves on a hot day than to mix shorts and a jacket. But I guess it almost works on this dude because of the beard…

    Ah, Angelo Flaccavento, the most stylish man on the planet. That said, he IS a fashion journalist (and an Italian one at that) so perhaps he should be. The thing that strikes in photos of him is that he's always alone. Which seems so sad. I'll be your bff Angelo!

    Not a fan, I think he looks like he's 8 years old- a grown man in little boys clothes. I don't find it appealing.

  186. Kevin Cashman

    September 9, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    I think he might be hitting way too many style trends to actually be pulling this off:

    - the short socks with big shoes
    - the shorts as part of a suit
    - seersucker
    - the beard
    - the red string bracelet
    - the moleskin notebook

    it seems to me to create the net effect of trying too hard and he looks like he might even be a little uncomfortable.

    I kept scrolling through the comments looking for the name "Thom Browne," but I didn't see it. With all due respect to this very probably lovely man, what about his outfit, other than perhaps the gold notebook, is not straight out of Thom Browne? Honestly, I see absolutely no sense of PERSONAL style, just plenty of THOM BROWNE style.

    Oh, an italian Angus Young. I like the suit, bow tie and red socks, but the shoes look two sizes too big on him and the shorts look – well, silly. A few commentors note that he is rocking a school/sunday school vibe. Its' cute on little boys, but otherwise unmanly even with the beard. It's fashion-forward and fun to see, but for me, it also a miss.

    A big NO to the little red socks.

    Wear real ones or unvisible ones, but this half-(or quarter-)way-thing only has a place in running shoes for a comfortable work-out.

    So is this the equivalent of getting your shoes ripped off and thrown up onto the powerlines? It looks like somebody jacked this guy and cut off his trouser legs. C’mon, sometimes wearing something just to be seen crosses the line. He’s trying waaay too hard.
