am wondering if he considered any other colour :-) Oh I doooooooo love red...there's something about it..the wondrous engergy of red methinks

 

Anonymous Nicolas said ... (4:49 AM) : 

Hey, that's also my "signature" ! :-)
And it is also M. Balladur's one (a former french Prime Minister).

 

Blogger Blue Floppy Hat said ... (5:38 AM) : 

Lovely sock colour. Especialy with the brown oxfords.

 

Blogger Gustav said ... (6:15 AM) : 

It went very very well with his shoes i dare say.

 

Blogger ZERBO said ... (6:34 AM) : 

Beppe Modenese was the first to wear red cashmere socks which he buys from a shop in Roma which sells to the cardinals.

 

Blogger Candid Cool said ... (7:24 AM) : 

that coat and that beautiful blue of his suit and tie is magnificent. and those red socks...are just the perfect touch.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 AM) : 

Seriously cool. I think the chalkstripe works so well because of the hair and skin tones.

 

Anonymous zara said ... (7:54 AM) : 

ooh god how i love those socks! isn't it lovely, how a tiny piece of colourful fabric can turn the whole outfite inside out? chapeau bas monsieur

 

Anonymous il capocanoniere said ... (7:56 AM) : 

Overall, a classic look. My only slight aesthetic quibbles are that trousers with a slender leg should not have turn-ups and that the shoes look slightly too heavy for the slim outline of the suit.

The shoes are a beautiful shade and the red socks add that burst of colour. Wonderful.

 

Blogger sandman_gr said ... (7:59 AM) : 

He has great style! I love vibrant colored socks peeping out from serious menswear!

 

Anonymous Andrea said ... (8:34 AM) : 

Hidden treasures, that rocks! I like it!

 

Blogger blackbird said ... (9:16 AM) : 

that makes me smile...

 

Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (9:17 AM) : 

Many people tell me that red & brown don't go together...well...**** them!! Red & Brown = stylissimo!

 

Anonymous Flint said ... (9:18 AM) : 

Totally subversive. Love it!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

I love the length of the pants. Perfect.

 

Blogger iopine said ... (9:46 AM) : 

oh boy, that is great, red socks and brown shoes.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:46 AM) : 

LOVE

 

Blogger Butch said ... (9:46 AM) : 

Totally sharp. Like the streamlined pants, and of course the red sox. There's something wonderful about subtle moments of flair in dress....

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 AM) : 

love it! just a little something to make you feel mischievious.

 

Blogger Elle. said ... (9:50 AM) : 

haha, very nice. =)
good eye.

 

Anonymous Audrey21 said ... (9:51 AM) : 

I'm seeing a lot of this sock fashion lately. A guy on a plane sitting next to me was wearing a pin stripe suit, pale pink cashmere v-neck sweater and crazy thin-striped socks in primary colours. Loved it!

 

Blogger Butch said ... (9:52 AM) : 

PS, here we see what T. Browne hath wrought: short(er) pants and a generally slimmer line.

This quy's dress is absolutely "correct"--then we look a bit more closely...and....

 

Blogger kiarella said ... (10:20 AM) : 

I like it, a personal, private touch that stimulates my curiosity about this guy's personality

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

snooze

 

Blogger jeff said ... (10:57 AM) : 

everything about him is perfect...

the fit of the suit, the jacket.

the monochromatic outfit with the unexpected pop of color on the socks.

not to mention, the fact that he is gorgeous and that beautiful grey hair doesn't hurt!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 AM) : 

The socks are great color and whimsical but they really show off the wonderful shoes...I like the straight leg pant and the excellent wing tips. The socks just bring your attention to the shoes. Must be english.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:44 PM) : 

love the pegged trousers--how does he get that big red foot through that tiny opening?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:49 PM) : 

I Looovvveee the socks. So hard to get away with that in stodgy ol' Toronto without getting sidelong looks or comments about one's bravery. It's nice to be validated. (isn't that why many of us visit this sight?) Best Blog Ever.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 PM) : 

A true modernist with his red socks and brogues

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 PM) : 

The shoes look clunky. A more fitting last would be a perfect design with the cordovan leather.

 

Blogger Elena said ... (1:38 PM) : 

My father-in-law did this always. When he died my mother-in-law gave away all his red socks and we all wore them to his funeral.

 

Anonymous lintmag said ... (1:54 PM) : 

Love love love that little surprise of color with all the rest somber tones - I think it makes you wonder what the man himself is like. No boring businessman, he.

 

Blogger 4 Chair said ... (2:04 PM) : 

Oh yea...He knows it works.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:15 PM) : 

I have a friend from Hungary who is always jokingly pointing out his red socks. He keeps saying that's how you know he's European.

I don't know if it's the lighting, but that shade of red goes beautifully with that shade of brown on the shoes.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 PM) : 

ohhh damn

 

Anonymous e. fiction said ... (2:31 PM) : 

This man epitomizes the look I want to attain in thirty years.

Hell, I wouldn't mind dressing like him now.

 

Blogger Sempre Libera said ... (2:42 PM) : 

Love it! And the contrast between the sharp color and the fuzzy pinstripes is really special. Something about him just says mischief...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:12 PM) : 

love the clunky shoes with the slim suit

 

Blogger Janvangogh said ... (3:15 PM) : 

What a fun surprise.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:29 PM) : 

Do the Milanese have a sort of "one off" fashion sense? What I mean is do they generally add a little something different to each outfit just to try it? Maybe they'll incorporate it or maybe they won't. I ask because most of your photos from Milan feature people with at least one item that I consider somehow off kilter or not right for the ensemble. Sometimes even a little sloppy.

This man's choice of socks, for instance. I don't understand it. I don't know if it's a statement, a mistake, or carelessness. I don't like it and if he were my father I'd ask him to change.

 

Anonymous Matilda said ... (3:51 PM) : 

Aw, that's amazing!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:37 PM) : 

wow. perfect colour!

 

Blogger NYC Fashionista said ... (5:10 PM) : 

Now you got me wondering what color and type of underware he's wearing!!!

I vote for a leopard print thong. :-)

 

Anonymous Lorena V. said ... (6:43 PM) : 

ma che bello!
I love the use of bright color in little surpring doses...

 

Blogger sk said ... (10:26 PM) : 

omg this is absolutely perfect!

 

Anonymous Chris said ... (3:28 AM) : 

I too share this man's love for red socks paired with almost anything.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:41 AM) : 

Awesome! As a lady sartorialist I always wear bright socks with my loafers. My professor asked if it was a political statement...hehe!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:13 AM) : 

The Devil wears Red Socks! I want to know more about this guy . . .

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 PM) : 

wow did you know his was wearing red socks? if yes, you have the eye of a fly!!!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 PM) : 

Wearing 360 degree welted, brown wingtip bluchers with a grey striped city suit is certainly an, ahem, interesting choice.

His suit jacket does not fit at all. It is simply too tight - notice the pulling at the middle button.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:11 PM) : 

Ladies and gentlemen, do you really all see those socks as red ?
I would say dark orange, or orange red, but certainly not the classical cardinal red.

In french, trousers of such length are called "feu de plancher" (floor fire ?), wich means they are slightly or not so slightly too short. Please let's not import in civilized Europe a rather debatable american custom.

For me,contrasted color socks should be hardly visible when you walk, only to be fully revealed when legs are crossed. But this is only an opinion and the guy in the picture is nevertheless really good-looking.

The socks look orange on my monitor.

ohhh pretty!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:10 PM) : 

Wonderful! I have to say I have found the ensembles of the men in Milan to be more appealing than the women's so far. This one shows that he's got a playful side - and it's fun!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:22 PM) : 

I really like this guys look as he must be closer to 50 than 40 and he can still pull off the close fitting suit with rather narrow and short trousers, the socks (of course) and the heavy brogues. Another great detail is the hankie in the breast pocket of the crombie. Many thanks for the Sartorialist once again.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 AM) : 

I'm looking for a more feminine version of those shoes at an affordable price... Because they're sexy.

 

Blogger Gemstone said ... (2:27 PM) : 

He looks distinguished and elegant and then, a little secret surprise of whimsicality. The socks look orange on my screen, which makes more sense with blue. The shoes may be a bit heavy for this look, but they look broken in and comfortable.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 AM) : 

Haha, i've adopted that thing, only my socks are black with orange stripes.

 

Anonymous Gerard said ... (2:39 AM) : 

He cuts a mighty fine silhouette!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 AM) : 

beautiful and brilliant!
