    100 years from now scholars and researchers will be assembling their evidence to document the decline of western culture and they’ll unearth this photo and it will feature prominently to support their research. It’s good you are willing to be the documentarian for this period.

      that said, he doesn’t look uncomfortable. I’d feel terribly inadequate if I were in his shoes

      Would you be king enough to explain how a man playing with colors and patterns can embody the decline of a civilization ?

      May I remind you that in the XV, XVII, XVIIth century, men : kings, warriors, great musicians, writers, doctors, used to wear, silks, ribbons, colors, make up, jewels, wigs, heels and frills. And I bet you wouldn’t call their looks the infection of the failing of the European civilisation !

        First, we’re not in the 15th century. Things are a little different today. Regardless.

        At first blush I would say this gentleman is having fun, perhaps even twitting everyone during a very stressful and dangerous time. However, I travel extensively and I’ve come to view such “statements” as essentially giving the finger to society. In other words, the attitude projected is I’ll do whatever I please, sit wherever I please, offend whomever I please, take whatever I please, etc.

        I do not know this gentleman and I am not accusing him of this attitude; simply that more often than not, when I’ve had encounters with people who present themselves as being on the leading edge of culture (and this dress does have that first impression impact) the underlying attitude is one of “it’s all about me”.

        I do not think that this sort of attitude is healthy nor is it productive for a society or culture. Again, not that this gentleman is how I’ve described, but the first impression is not a productive one.

        We live in interesting times.

          Amazing how your mind works on first impressions…when I see people who dress “out of the petit bourgeois box”,my impression is totally the opposite…yes indeed,we live in interesting times!

            It’s interesting how ones outlook in youth morphs over time. I am not the same person I was 50+ years ago. What worked in my teen years no longer resonates in my later years. Give it time.

    Emiliano Salci from Dimore design in Milan. An amazing designer and one I look to for inspiration. He is an original.

    Not for the faint of heart if one intends to step out into the public. But he looks like he enjoys getting dressed in the morning. Be comfortable in your own skin, I think. Not for me but for him, yes

    There is a method to this merry madness. There is actually balance and symmetry: the socks and shirt match, so do the shoes and necklace , even the prints on the robe and pants are similar…all held together with silky structure. He owns his style.

    All sarcasm aside, and totally devoid of any criticism , I sincerely envy people who can be this secure within themselves. I’m trying, but I’m a long way from here. But I echo Dwight: props to him. Have a good day, my man.

    He sure has the guts to wear this but I think he missed the plane to Ibiza. (the didn’t let him in with his pyjamas).

    Risk taking. And his accessories are good and socks match the shirt. I like people who like to have fun.

    Emiliano – Rjh! Rjh!
    I feel like a pair of curtains!

    Rjh – - oh Emiliano …..pull yourself together

    Emiliano – I did but it was dark…..

    Garry – See Rjh I told you so.

    Totally love this look on this person with this attitude and this way of holding himself, it makes me happy. I like how the necklace matches the shoes and how the prints clash. Mr. Salci please ignore the negative comments above!!!

    I love and admire guys who have the courage and taste to push gender clothing boundaries !!

    Men’s fashion lack so much off color, fantasy, innovation…

    Once you’ve explored all the lapel lengths possibilities, you need something new.

    And it is very interesting to see the difference in reaction between women appropriating mens fashion.
    Men appropriating women “things” are still seen ridiculous, etc.
    Women appropriating men’s things (well not all men things) are seen bold, classy, etc.

    It says al lot about how we perceive mens attributes towards women attributes.

      Couldn’t agree more! I too am attempting to flair things up a bit and all lapel lengths have been conquered… Time to branch out.

    This man would be brave if only he’d live in the “real life”, with office colleagues, factory buddies… Instead of that, this gentleman goes from a hotel to another, a fashion week here a catwalk show there. Courage ? In the fashion show off world ? Come on…

    I’m ok with prints on prints, but he just looks like he’s wearing drapes and curtains.

    With brown colour bag & The JACKET, you are looking awesome I like those clothes

    Nowadays we dont need those so called style-icons anymore , because it has NOTHING to do with style. It,s just:Look at ME…………

    This is so wrong that I don’t even know where to start. The print mix is the less horrible part. The ill fitting clothes, the hideous shoes, the socks, … was he drunk when he got dressed ?

    His fresh point of view is really needed. I love this comfortable STYLE so much :)

    A man wearing womens’ pajamas as street wear. It doesn’t work for me.

    Well, I am really surprised at the vitriol this outfit has drawn; yes it pushes the pattern boundaries but he looks comfortable and interesting. I am constantly amazed by the looks on women which are lauded and which are often ridiculous, uncomfortable and with no genuine elegance. Bravo, I think you look great.

    Would look so much better with soft shoes, or bare feet.

    I would so much prefer to see photos of outfits that don’t look like the result of an expectation to be photographed and posted on some very particular blog.

    Oh my God, this guy looks awesome. I’d be chatting to him in a cafe before the banker in Brioni any day.
