    Business casual never looked so cool. Love the accessories.

    The colors in his outfit harmonize well with the lighter ridge he’s sitting on and the darker wall in the background.
    Maybe he’s searching for another Heineken ; )

        If you look closely you can see that there are 9 bottles not 5. That boy wouldn’t be able to sit on the wall…

    Everyone’s got a dark side i guess.

    Though, it has to be said.. that outfit is outstanding!

    Another wonderful example of textures, colors, and composition that pushes fine fashion within great photography. This photograph alone inspires me to aspire to the good things in life.

    No, you need 6 bottles to remain classy.

    The beer bottles and the young business man, classic!

    Brings to mind an image of Guido Guerrieri (look it up!) outside of the courthouse preparing for his case!
    Also, I love the substantial trouser cuffs.

    non capisco…ma questo era per strada, vestito di tutto punto con le bottiglie di birra messe perfettamente in fila (con tanto di distanza perfetta tra tutte????).
    Comunque la foto è bella, finto casuale, ma bella.

    Oh how I love this picture! The Heineken empty bottles add some humor to it! But am mostly loving the different shades of brown on the guy!

    Love the bottles. But, contrary to some f the responses, a double reasted suit is NOT business casual. Also, his socks are too dark for his pants and make his legs seem short.

  23. Hector

    Naturally. He is Italian.

    Love his classic suit and the composition of the shot is fantastic! Makes me wonder who belongs to those empty beer bottles :)

    Does anyone know who makes those loafers? Been looking for a pair of brown tassel loafers with a slim silohuette like the ones pictured.

      Should definetly be a pair of Edward Green’s Belgravia tassel loafers…

    is he looking for his bottle opener so he can finish that 12 pack?

    And if one of those bot-tles should accidently fall….there’d be 7 green bot-tles sitting on the wall :)

    The lone bottle of beer is transmitting a signal to the bartender…to please bring another one….oh technology.

    Scott, I used to love the Pitti photos the best…however, looking at photos by other photographers who are also taking photos of the Pitti street style, I find that the papagallo bella figura-esque style of the crowd is now just a little too much, too studied and definitely trying too hard to be interesting. Are you seeing that too? It seems like the men of Pitti are becoming as costumey as the oft photographed over the top women of the fashion week street. Without mentioning any names of course.

    The most impressive thing about his choice of outfit is that Florence is nearly 40 degrees at the moment. That shows true commitment to style and elegance.

    Very pretty photo. Color/pattern of socks, however, should not be so close to color of shoes, but more in tone with color of suit/pants. Here the socks/shoes in dark brown seem like single block of color, isolated from the rest of the ensemble. Also, the strong contrast between the testa di moro (dark brown) color of the shoes and the light tan color of the briefcase is jarring to the eye. Would have been better if color of the 2 leather items in the outfit were more uniform in color. Nevertheless, still a nice pic.

    Oh, I forgot my sandwiches! Seriously, nice shoes, but wearing stocks?
