    Does anybody know (you Scott?) where the bag is from?

      I have the same (from ebay) and it is an ancient and much loved Zara bag.

        Doesn’t it look like a vintage Birkin? If it’s a Zara bag, please let me know where I could get one :)))

    Those boots make me want to horseback ride through a beautiful country side…Central Park will do.

    sharp looking coat and that yellow sweater really pops out


    January 11, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    It doesn’t do it for me – he looks a little apologetic and slumped, which seems at variance with the clothes. I have to say, though, those boots are fantabulous.

    I love the look!

    Great look, although the gentleman doesn’t seem too pleased with being photographed…

    He is wonderful! The collar bar, the unusually tailored overcoat – so severe and cool on him.

    Grote gelije! (that’s Dutch)
    A mesmerizing shot that could just as well have been 1813 instead of 2013. Style beyond fashion and time.

    The clothes and accessories are very nice, and yet, somehow, the whole thing doesn’t seem to work on him, as if he were trying too hard…
    Dunno. Can’t really put my finger on it.

    The Sartorialist

    Yes I agree, he is indeed a cool looking guy. He is the same man pictured earlier last year in a blue vignette.

    Is he your friend ?

    This is a genuine question.

    Thank you in advance

    A Sartorial Man.

    This is a very rare coat style. Even Burberry’s do not produce this kind of item anymore. Thus I suspect it is bespoke.

    Love the whole look.especially the boots.

    Very interesting coat!

  30. Andy

    That’s exactly what bothers me about this outfit. Why do some guys at Pitti feel the need to dress like its the 1800′s? There are outfits and there are costumes, and this is the latter. I really like the oversized pocket flaps though!

    Great boots! Love the coat but it needs to be fitted.

    Very dapper. Thumbs up. I love a good coat.

    But, as a yoga practitioner, I must critique his outwardly turned feet. That stance, if habitual, will not serve him well in the long run.

    • LIZPR

      As a former ballet dancer (well, not professionally, but I was serious about it) … I disagree! Yoga’s great but I find not being able to turn out unbearable….. lol!

      Agree with you – this is one heck of a coat.

      I love this dude’s look – I always do!

      • YogaSpy

        January 12, 2013 at 1:48 pm

        Ha! I value wide turnout, too. Who could do Padmasana (Lotus pose) otherwise! I am not discounting the necessity for full range of motion.

        But if ever you take up running (or yoga), point your feet forward and roll your thighs inward. Of course, as a serious dancer, you can probably do so. But many people cannot counter their tendencies, even temporarily.

        Yes, this fellow is unmistakable. That’s the sign of a sartorialist, no?

    ‘Toad of Toad Hall’ style. I like it.

    If this entire ensemble was worn by an Italian man, there would be a mild cloud of perfume following in his wake. Pino Silvestre, for example. I wonder if this man is wearing cologne, And if so, what it would be. Great photo!

    Good morning Sir.
    Your coat is too big for you.

    Smilling should be not an option :)

    I like the combination of coat and yellow knit.

    I like the look but it’s definitely not for me. He does however remind me of sherlock!

    Incredible. I love the mix. His face changes the jacket for me.

    is that a vintage hermes bag, kind of looks like the hac. Anyway great pic. Love the mixture and the coat is great.

    seen him in Via Solferino yesterday, exact same outfit…does he changes sometimes? :-)

    The coat probably come from ARNYS (Paris)

    I dislike everything below the waist: the high boots and jodhpurs. In no way is this gentleman going riding and I do not see the use of these as ‘fashion’ or ”style’. It’s just ridiculous.

  46. Ginger

    The coat is fabulous. I like how the green lines pop out against the caramel, the large cuffs, and the double pocket on one side. The shape is great too- when heavy coats in that length and colour are tailored it can look too 1970′s.

    The rest of the outfit with all the leather accessories is very masculine.

    The more I think about it the more i love it. Thanks for uploading it! I’m now inspired to think about how I can incorporate some of this gentlemen’s look into my wardrobe.

    That coat fabric is lovely! Tempting to delete a few flaps and accessories to better enjoy the colour, but I will try not to.

    i was just wondering why you have not showed men in riding boots earlier. in our small european town (basel), guys are happily walking around in riding boot – even in a skinnier version – slim fitted trousers and so the boots (black!).

    Way too overtly sartorial. Self-conscious and consumerist. He wants you to know he spent money on his clothes. Not impressed.

      I must agree
