Not the best fitting coat I've ever seen but at least it has an novel combination of pocket styles.


Anonymous giuseppe timore said ... (10:37 AM) : 

knitted tie=casual
double breasted=dressy

brown suit, black tie?

so milanese! these guys have such a knack for pulling off stuff that technically doesn't belong together. plus those big, broad smiles that seem to shout"i'm from milan,of course i'm stytlish. come, you take my picture!" tend to pull the whole outfit together.

query: are his pocket flaps tucked in, or is the ticket pocket the only one with a flap? wierd little tailoring detail?

and a smile like sugar icing...

the jacket is a bit too loose on the waist, seems a bit weird for me.


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (11:44 AM) : 

the recipe for a good looking man:
a nice suit
a stunning smile
that's it and he works it!


Anonymous giorgia said ... (11:44 AM) : 

yup, indeed not the best fitting suit, but I reckon if he wore a friar's jute thing he'd look cool anyway.


Blogger hassan1 said ... (11:45 AM) : 

Worst fitted jacket i have ever seen in a while!!!


Blogger Steven said ... (11:46 AM) : 

Not the best suit in the world. It looks like a cotton rather than a wool based piece.

Nevertheless, he is kinda stylish. There must be something in the Milanese air that gives guys the confidence to throw together that sort of combo!!


Blogger landis said ... (11:53 AM) : 

he's wearing clothes?

didn't notice. . .


Blogger sandman_gr said ... (11:54 AM) : 

Mr. Marzotto is always well dressed!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 AM) : 

This is a wonderfully cut suit. I like the combination of knit tie and double-breasted suit. It isn't seen often, but it works for me because traditionally the double breasted is quite a bit more casual than the single breasted esp. here because it is brown. As for the pockets, I am sure they are all flapped, only it is the convention that a gentleman always tucks in his pocket flaps, but never the flap of the ticket pocket. I don't know why. Maybe because the ticket pocket was more often used to carry cash or change, rather than tickets, and so it was more secure to leave it covered.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:32 PM) : 

It just goes to show that the best fashion accessory is a great smile.


Blogger Faith said ... (12:38 PM) : 

I love how his shirt collar, pocket square and little hint of cuff all seem to echo his bright smile.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:47 PM) : 

Just nice to see a happy face !


Blogger bopsy said ... (1:09 PM) : 

Clearly the man knows how to dress. Every element may not be perfection, but together with that smile.. I agree with giuseppe timore...he is saying, "I am from Milan, and of course I am stylish. I do it my own way, and it works."


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:20 PM) : 

what a smile.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

Who cares about the jacket? He is georgeous!


Blogger Butch said ... (2:00 PM) : 

Not the best cut for this gentleman, nor fit.

Because he's relatively narrow-shouldered he needs less going on around the hips rather than more. That is, he'd be better off avoiding a DB suit, unless the jacket shoulders were built out a bit.

But the color is novel in a very pleasing way.


Anonymous aramis said ... (2:10 PM) : 

ok matteo.. pulling it off well but the jacket is a little too boxy in the waist and the sleeves are a tad too short.
nice general tongue-in-cheek though.


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

Don't really like the fabric and colour of the tie vs the fabric and colour of the suit. Also not a great fit, in my opinion.


Anonymous h. said ... (3:13 PM) : 

what ever happenend to his shoulders??


Blogger Garth said ... (3:31 PM) : 

I don't like the way the suit fits around his stomach/waist area. Looks like it was tailored for an obese man, and now this guy is wearing it. Should be brought in to fit the shape of his body better


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 PM) : 

jeeee wizzzz... lighten up, the guy looks dapper. The jacket is obvious unconstructed, for a more devil-may-care look and feel.


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

I think this beautifully illustrates how the person wearing the clothes can make or break an outfit. With that exuberant confidence he'd look put together and suave in damn near anything, I imagine.


Blogger Sam said ... (5:16 PM) : 

brown and black??? never!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:53 PM) : 

Money does not always bring style.
He can afford clothes that fit. Shame on him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:00 PM) : 

I agree with the others about the fit of the jacket (though one button is undone). But he's so CUTE...and love the brown.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:02 PM) : 

What caught my attention was the flapped ticket pocket combined with jetted pockets. Did he intentionally stage it this way?


Blogger panda said ... (6:56 PM) : 

Not bad. Some improvements could be made (as said in the other comments) but definitely a step forward in bringing back the brilliance of the double breasted suit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 PM) : 

I never could have thought black and brown could work but it does. Italians love their brown. Churchill said brown was for cads but I find it to be a welcome break once in a while.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 PM) : 

I agree wholeheartedly. Even a "friar's jute thing" would make this man look put together. All it takes is confidence.

Sart, you really capture people in these portraits. I feel like I know him.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:00 PM) : 

coat doesn't fit.


Blogger Butch said ... (10:02 PM) : 

Re the besom pockets vs. the flapped one: the former may in fact have flaps that have been tucked completely into the pockets.

Note the "ghost" or bas relief flap effect on the pocket at left. (The one on the right isn't as pronounced.)



Blogger ricpic said ... (10:23 PM) : 

Don't quite know why but this has the feel of a flashback to the turn of the century (19th to 20th).


Blogger Maria said ... (10:28 PM) : 

I like the shorter jackets better on him (from previous seasons). I do think he has great charisma, and to capture that in a photograph remind us on how a smile is a great asset for an immortal portrait.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 AM) : 

i feel like he's about to sell me that scooter..


Blogger underneath said ... (2:59 AM) : 

Extremely charming, friendly smile, classic and effortless style. And what a great colour.. put him on a plane to Norway..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:51 AM) : 

He looks fine and happy in his clothes.

And to all those who love to criticise on this site, well, look on the bright side, at least he isn't smoking.



Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (7:00 AM) : 

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you will see the jacket is actually very nicely shaped - what is throwing you is the angle that he is standing at with the dark scooter behind him.

Also the tie was navy


Anonymous fashionholic said ... (8:14 AM) : 

not a huge fan of that double button thing... but I like the colour.. brown is nice ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:01 AM) : 

erh i have to agree with the top comment. but i think his gorgeous smile saves him ;D


Blogger Girl Spy said ... (9:37 AM) : 

Who cares about the clothes? He's a handsome Italian man named Matteo!

I could use that smile in my life.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:14 AM) : 

a handsome Italian man named Matteo... heir to the Marzotto Empire: better and better...


Blogger UES boy said ... (11:36 AM) : 

When I look at it from the waist up, it looks fine. When I look at it from the waist down, it looks fine. But as a whole, there is definitely SOME thing which is giving him the appearance of a pear shaped body. With a shoulder like that, the padding is meant to end right before the end of the wearer's shoulder to create a natural look. But there is someting which I cannot put my finger on which throws off the photographic appearance of this man. I'm sure it looked perfect in person.


Blogger Laaw-yuhr said ... (12:06 PM) : 

That smile!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Matteo is my swallow-shoulder hero!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:12 PM) : 

great look-
would have liked to have seen a solid navy or navy/brown paisley pocket silk



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:19 PM) : 

I always feel cheerful when wearing my favorite clothes. Perhaps this suit is contributing to the radiant smile? This is what our clothes should do for us!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:31 PM) : 

he is just adorable although before i saw the closeup i was fairly sure it was an ill fitting suit but i now im not sure and the brown and black are a lil different but somehow do-able. im just positive he could make many girls do crazy things with a smile like that!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 AM) : 

Yes, the cut of the jacket is not bad, it just looks funny in the pic because of how he is standing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 AM) : 

sometimes in Italy you sport a jacket you love from some ancestor: your father/gramps/ an uncle you were very close to.
maybe Mr Marzotto has done this here.
the jacket is nice, but clearly it wasn't made for him.
would be nice to know the details. having said that, this is clearly a case of clotheshorses for courses.



Anonymous chiara said ... (8:20 PM) : 

the meanig of elegance traslated in the concept of "to be man" this is what he are.

ah matteo matteo....sei e resti sempre un bellissimo uomo...ed è chiaro che tu lo sappia fin troppo senza lo stile e l'eleganza con cui porti ciò che indossi,senza quella determinatezza e quella consapevolezza di essere uomo con la U maiuscola...bè il risultato nel guardarti non sarebbe certo lo stesso : perfetto
