On the Street...Midtown Man, Manhattan

The man makes the clothes but when the clothes are made by Cesare Attolini it helps a little.

ps is the look nearly as cool without the dramatic hair?

Blogger Françoise said ... (9:42 AM) : 

it also helps (at least a little?) that the guy has a harmonious, well structured body. :)


Blogger jeff said ... (9:47 AM) : 

classic and modern at the same time.

i love the combination of both... the white pocket square, simple blue suit, monk strap shoes, but with a great cut, a skinny tie.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:49 AM) : 

Yes, even without the hair, he'd look impeccable.


Blogger Homo Ono said ... (9:55 AM) : 

Lovely suit. I would never wear those shoes with it however. Am I being too conservative when I believe that I must only wear lace-ups with a suit?

On another note: All the scaffolding all over Manhattan has ruined the street scape and makes appreciating some buildings impossible.

(What a fuddy-duddy I am this morning! Maybe a couple more hours of sleep will help.)


Blogger filoderba said ... (10:06 AM) : 

a shaved head (short hair it's also ok)would just be WOW!!!

Living proof that simple chic is always best.


Anonymous cigalechanta said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Very well turned out and a goodlooking guy


Blogger t.r.b said ... (11:09 AM) : 

gosh, he's handsome! he looks like he could wear a perfect hanes tshirt, vintage levis, and classic converse and look just as good...yes, he's look just as dramatic. his pose definitely helps; the slight slouch, devil-may-care attitude it conveys helps.


Blogger Johanna said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I don't know much about men's fashion other than that which I instinctively like and don't like. *This* I like very much. The hair, the cut of the shirt, the fit of the suit - gorgeous.


Anonymous CKDexterHaven said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Everything is tip-top, except the shoes, which are inelegant and clunky....


Blogger amandasi said ... (11:41 AM) : 

He reminds me of a young William Hurt. Very nice...But was he actually leaning on the scaffolding when you found him? So perfect, so editorial.


Blogger Candid Cool said ... (11:53 AM) : 

he looks great, amazing hair


Blogger positively the same dame said ... (11:56 AM) : 

alice olive says it best by describing the look as "impeccable" which, to me, makes it something other than cool.


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

The hair keeps this from being too conservative for me. I wonder if it would work for him to add a little splash of bright color somewhere...tie, shirt or pocket square maybe?


Blogger Stacy said ... (12:22 PM) : 

Too true about the hair!

I love when a man puts some style into his much in fact, that I began cutting and colouring my husband's hair for him.


Blogger applevenusian said ... (12:33 PM) : 

*picks her jaw up off the floor*

oh, he's cool, all right, hair or no hair. the suit is quite dashing. look at those eyes. *ahem*


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (1:49 PM) : 

With or without the hair, the gentleman hits all the right notes (except for the shoes!). He's very handsome and I just love the hair. I bet Graydon Carter believes his hair looks JUST like that : )!


Blogger jamesy said ... (1:59 PM) : 

I wonder if you can see the full body harness through the suit...LOL!
The Hair is the part I love the most about him. The suit is impeccably appointed, yes..but really it's his personal approach of the English Schoolboy fop of hair that makes this look rock!!
I pray that beneath that look he is a total BadA&* rock god in hiding...Cheerspink


Blogger Jean said ... (2:30 PM) : 

The line of the hair / neck / shoulder is interesting but not good. Obvious he's not filling out the shoulder at all. Eat-up expression and hair are good.


Blogger Minn said ... (2:47 PM) : 

Oh, the subtle-yet-extravagant hair absolutely makes the look. As does his "PERSONAL SPACE PLEASE, SARTO" expression. Haha.

I really like the very subtle neutral blue of his tie. And am also very much taken with his quirky shoes. :)


Blogger S. Keng said ... (3:26 PM) : 

It would be hard not to look good in Attolini; that being said, it looks like the sleeves are too long, and the shoes are a bit "off."

Great blog BTW, easily one of my favorites.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

The monk-strap shoes make it clear that this is more than just a good-looking guy -- he understands how to create personal style within the framework of a traditional suit and tie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:47 PM) : 

very bill nighy.


Blogger Sadia Bruce said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Neither the hair nor the ensemble matters nearly as much as his badass comportment.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Isn't it the perfection of fit here, more than anything else?

(I hate to cavil, but I agree about the shoes. However, having said that, this man looks terrific.)


Anonymous Verdiales said ... (6:27 PM) : 

is the look nearly as cool without the dramatic hair?


Without the hair, he's just another suit.


Blogger Butch said ... (6:33 PM) : 

Not to fuss too much about this otherwise lovely suit, but check out the jacket's fit around the neck--perhaps it's the effect of his posture or position, but the collar is standing away slightly from the collar.

And speaking of collar, his isn't really the best choice, in my opinion. Far too high on the neck, and far too rigid.


Anonymous Bklyn Babe said ... (6:37 PM) : 

jus lovely.


Anonymous corrina corrina said ... (6:54 PM) : 

that's enrico from attolini! he's so dapper. he looks just like roger moore in person.


Blogger melbourne said ... (8:11 PM) : 

It's his insouciance that can't be bought. Very dashing and sexy! And for those with the shoe rules, do you really believe that until humans are extinct only one type of shoe should be worn with a suit? How restrictive can you get!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:16 PM) : 


Any chance we can get you to do an "On the Street... Butch showing us how it's done!"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:53 AM) : 

I love this kind of hair on men. More men should do it. Unfortunately I see a lot of men with longer hair who don't understand it needs to be as carefully groomed as short hair. This guy gets it.


Blogger ricpic said ... (3:02 PM) : 

Absolutely classic straightforward simplicity.


Anonymous arjan said ... (4:12 PM) : 

An Attolini suit, suits almost every man! But how can you destroy such a great suit with such horrible shoes?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:55 PM) : 

Shirt collar sits too high on the neck. Otherwise good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:07 PM) : 

A handsome man who might *sniff* at me if I were to brush up against his impeccable suit!


Blogger Irene M said ... (8:44 PM) : 

The hair makes it, all the way!
