On the Street…The Fortezza, Florence

61518pittitiePerfect morning inspiration!


Love the stripe tie against the yellow check shirt under the textured solaro suit.


Notice the way the tie is so informally (but very consciously) knotted so that the back blade of the tie is almost equal to the front blade of the tie.


I also love that the tie has the slightest bit of pink that echos the red iridescence of the solaro fabric of his suit jacket.


Menswear ,at its best, is about subtle sophistication and artistry of color pattern and this man has achieved near perfection in all of those elements!

    I agree. I like all those things. All so quiet and nicely observed.

    Everything matches so well! Love how casually styled but put together this looks!

    Wow, the color palette here is amazing. I love the suit fabric and that tie. Very well done. I would wear this in a hot minute.

    That slightest of stripes in the suit jacket is sublime!

    I feel we’re in a phase now where Sart is bringing out the heavy artillery. The past couple of posts feature gents with an incredible style sense. This man is absolutely impeccable, yet it seems that he did this while sipping his morning coffee and glancing at a newspaper while tying his tie. I’m both awed and humbled by this guy, and taken aback by how much I’ve yet to learn. Where’s the school for this? Or am I already in it ,here?

    Yellow shirts be a good choice, its a royal look with stripes.

    Normally I’m not a fan of yellow but he sort of buries it here. This suit is so wonderful.

    Looks great together but one wonders if the true test is how the parts can be worn again with other parts. This post is veering negative, something The Sartorialist won’t tolerate, but anyone with time, contacts, and money can put together a well-matched outfit.

    Your men’s style photos should be linked to every college and grad school career counseling office.

    My only quibble with the gentleman pictured above is my personal preference for a half-windsor rather than a four-in-hand tie knot. Moreover, that gustibus quibble is really, really small.

    *deep sigh over cup of coffee – oooooooh…. I LOVE this*
    I’m so delighted over the subtle beauty of color and pattern, that it gives me butterflies.

    This is just so subtle and perfect at the same time. I think if I saw him on the street, I would definitely do a double take.

    So subtly artful and well-tailored. A real inspiration.
