      Yes, agreed. But.. love those eyes and the rest of him, much much more!! Is a marriage proposal inappropriate?

    simple with added extras! Its refreshing to see someone that doesn't feel the need to over dress and is comfortable in earth tones and the odd accessory or two!

    The fabric looks very interesting, but I love most of all his look of utter cool. Thanks again!

    What's the theme? Double-breasted blazer? Dotted scarf? Scarf knotting? Beards? The new IT colour – camel/brown? The possibilities seem endless…

    I really like the double-breasted jacket, but I feel like in this day and age men are scared to wear it. And I thought smoking was out, but this guy is extremely cool. I actually like his facial expression more than I like the outfit. He exudes confidence.

    I love the look, I'm not sure what the title refers to, variation on a theme? Polka dots? I like all the details on the jacket, and the extra pocket above the right hand one. What is the material?

    Double breast blazers are so sophisticated on mens!!! Even better if the scarf is added…. I love it!!

    Interesting treatment of a ticket pocket on the coat. Moreover, he must have worn the coat with lapels closed, as there is what looks like a flower stem in the buttonhole which would only make sense if he wore the coat with lapels closed. It could be also be a pen's clip.

    OTOH, his slouch and odd cigarette grasp make him look…tipsy, and ages him.


    April 5, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    I love the scarf and the way he has the blazer buttoned.

    It's lovely to see 'double breasted' being executed in a more casual way.

    he is the ultimate sexy intellectual! his outfit may make a statement, but his facial expression is what makes him so intriguing.
    ps, is that lady gaga in the background on the left? haha
    as always, love you blog…

    I wish more men dressed like this in Paris/New York/Moscow. This effortless yet clean cut chicness seems to only be natural to Milano men.

    you can definitely tell that army green and hunter green are big for the upcoming seasons. i love the way we recycle our color palette every few years with hearty, subtle throws to earthtones.

    I'm a little surprised noone has mentioned this but to be honest, the greasy hair totally detracts from any sort of style the man would exude.

    I love his polka-dots!

    variation on a theme because he was previously featured in reference to that posture and walk. beautiful nonchalance. i'd love to know who he is.

    WOW!!!!! This is style. I love that jacket, cut is superb, fabric and color are wonderful, and the patch pockets on the double breasted jacket give a relaxed and casual touch. Genius, I love and covet every item he is wearing.

    Fantastic scarf (brings out his color), dig his pose. This is confidence, kids, get some and you too can be this cool. My only thing is that his top torso button(s) should be higher and a bit closer to his lapel (or just get rid of them both). Great tones, fab shot.

    In fact it doesn't matter what he is wearing. It's his smile, the specific way of looking at a photographer, manner with which he's holding a cigarette… Oh God!

  52. Steven

    I must be crazy but the hair is a mess, the suit is puckering, kind of slouchy all over. The scarf is great though and he seems to be in total command of the photo. You women like the unkept man?

    Variation on a theme must refer to the previous post on 2/17/10 (Google "The Sartorialist, Swagger). This man is dashing in his double breasted coat/scarf/cigarette/commanding facial expression combo in this picture, very similar to the combo in the previous pic on 2/17/10. When it works this well, why change it up?

    There's a sense of classic playfulness in his eyes and his total look!

    Kind of a satyr, isn't he?
    That second inner pcoket just … makes me want to steal the jacket; if it was slung across a chair somewhere…nearby.

    Its an effortless "oh this old thing" type style that maintains elegance w/o grasping for it. As a left handed smoker myself the presence of the cigarette fails to offend (as it has some). By the way, I also love him when he made an appearance in Feb

    Oh how I love men who dress like this. A true European dandy – it's the little extra flourishes (the attention to detail in the jacket, the pocket 'kerchief, the beautiful plum scarf) that make it.

    I can't stop seeing this picture. This man looks like a dream, a mix between a bad guy and a picaroon person. The way he dressed it's delightfull and manly. If I close my eyes, I can smell his cigarrete and some notes of a strong cologne.

    Someone knows his name? I love him, is that possible?
