What a sharp looking guy and that boat is gorgeous!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:37 PM) : 

I've been looking for a jacket made with a contrast piping--a great casual classic look.I think the boat is icing on the cake.--HB

Piombo! I love that boutique! I just found out it a couple of months ago here in Milan (near via montenapoleone).


Blogger Jason said ... (6:32 PM) : 

He's one of the few gentlemen I've seen wearing an open double breasted coat well. White belt . . . I assume he has on white shoes? Would have loved to see them!


Blogger JO said ... (7:04 PM) : 

Lovely - I would love to run away there.... and steal that boat for a while. :)


Blogger jane said ... (7:30 PM) : 

The picture of the boat looks almost unreal!
So bright in colors.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:35 PM) : 

I can understand why you love Portofino.


Anonymous red shoes said ... (7:42 PM) : 

I want to be THERE! I see the guy as the Captain telling great stories on his beautiful boat & afterwards, relaxing on the lovely cushions wishing for another afternoon on the boat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:04 PM) : 

You love it, I miss it.

Thank you for all your gorgeous posts of people who love life and understand, for the most part, timelessness.


Anonymous la sartorialista said ... (8:17 PM) : 

I love Portofino too and also Italians in their kicky little boats.


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (8:18 PM) : 

Beautiful boat!


Blogger Randall said ... (8:50 PM) : 

and I love Piombo!


Blogger katiecrackernuts said ... (9:04 PM) : 

Forget the boat people. Look at the colour of that water. It's glorious.


Anonymous ulla said ... (9:25 PM) : 

that guy is a famous german aristocrat.... i cannot think of his name right now. he was one of the original 'jetsetters' of the 60's and 70's.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:44 PM) : 


and im convinced that the boat would make a great dress. color-wise that is.

it reminds me of a chloe collection from a year or two ago.


Blogger Maggie May said ... (11:30 PM) : 

um, hello Fantasy Island. not into the nautical suit but love the pictures.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 PM) : 

I love the trim on his coat! Very rich.


Anonymous Antoine said ... (11:46 PM) : 

I love the boat, not so much the coat...


Anonymous Kenny said ... (12:34 AM) : 

God, it is so lavishly "leisurely". Ugh. I'm not scoffing at the style, just the far reach that lifestyle is for me.


Blogger Kris Bass said ... (12:39 AM) : 

Handsome man in a sharp suit! What a blog!


Blogger Mobias said ... (1:30 AM) : 

the picture was too small in GQ for me to tell what was going on. now i understand.


Blogger Sunny Hwang said ... (1:55 AM) : 

He's more orange than Chester Cheetah of Cheetos fame.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:06 AM) : 

I love how you've managed to capture the elegance of the setting in each picture. The portrait of the boat looks so idyllic its fit for a postcard.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:48 AM) : 

The guy is Hans Hermann Weyer, known as "Der schöne Konsul" (the handsom consul). A famous German with arguable reputation in the 60'ies who sold certificates of nobility to the nouveau riche and parvenues from the German petty bourgeois.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:05 AM) : 

I'd guess it's 'Consul' Weyer, not exactly an aristocrat but adopted and part of the jet set probably with everybody rolling his/her eyes :-)

See his website with magazine covers and you will recognize that he love uniforms - phantasy ones I suppose...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 AM) : 

This gentleman looks so dapper... Love how he's rocking his style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:47 AM) : 

I love that the lining of the jacket is not white - simply love the jacket!


Blogger muir mackean said ... (6:07 AM) : 

nice boat - but I'm not sure about the accessories. those blue and white fenders are so last year ...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:31 AM) : 

I think it is this guy:


Blogger porter hovey said ... (10:01 AM) : 

That boat is just out of control! Just love it. SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL.


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

that little boat is simply gorgeous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 AM) : 

sooo tan.


Blogger Ryan Mac said ... (11:02 AM) : 

That really is a great jacket!


Anonymous K said ... (11:18 AM) : 

European styles go fine with anyone.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:36 AM) : 

I used to love Portofino.. The Golfo del Paradiso is gorgeous. But then one day it became..awfully snobish?!


Anonymous lis said ... (2:06 PM) : 

Beautiful. I think I love Portofino, too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:57 PM) : 

I don't ask for much really.

I just want to work at that shop, creating displays, and live in a little apartment overlooking that marina where my attentive and handsome boyfriend and I will enjoy cooking pasta and sipping wine. I will wear linen and espadrilles and delicate sweaters, the soft salty breeze will make my curly hair toussled and sexy, I will be serene.

Sigh....beautiful and inspirational. Thank you Sart.


Anonymous Colleen said ... (5:54 PM) : 

He looks great, but I'm eyeing that glassy water even more. I want to dive right in!


Anonymous Olaf Germany said ... (6:28 PM) : 

Yes, I can't believe it. It's Consul Weyer. I am German and in the 80's he was in every talkshow you like see or not...anyway: Nice shots, wonderful old fashioned. I smell a hint of Signoricci by Nina Ricci.


Blogger jana said ... (7:32 PM) : 

Portofino is a dream...the whole ligurian coast is pretty magical though.


Blogger nyc/caribbean ragazza said ... (7:37 AM) : 

Sitting here in hot, humid Rome. I haven't made it up the coast yet but I plan.

belle foto!


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

Those prints on the cushions remind me of Josef Frank designs. There's nothing more divine than the Mediterranean


Blogger John Christopher said ... (11:38 PM) : 

That boat is fucking incredible.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:28 AM) :

Blogger josh y lola said ... (11:44 AM) :

Anonymous JP said ... (6:44 PM) : 

What's not to love? He looks like a million bucks. A man who's comfortable in his own skin.


Blogger laura said ... (9:25 PM) : 

oh you were in portofino!
thats my fave part of the world, my nonna lives in rappallo (2 towns south)....i think so many of the little costal towns in liguria are so beautiful and full of amazing views.
next time your there , go to rapallo. there is a fab old hat shop and a toy shop that used to be a clothes shop in the 60's. the old lady who owns it never got rid of her old pre-toy stock, if your nice she will take it all out and let you buy pieces.
they all still have the tags on....witch sounds boring but the graphics and logos are very cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 AM) : 

I love Portofino too, just came back from it yesterday. Amazed by the people and the street and the boats.


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

Btw, Konsul Weyer and his wife are extremely friendly - I sometimes met them in Bonn-Bad Godesberg because the use to shop in the same supermarket and had a parking spot in the same garage my little humble Panda lived. Superfriendly to everybody they come across and always very stylish, a little bit too much sometimes for Tuesday mornings ... ;-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 AM) : 

i lover portofino too. coming from australia, this is very indulgent eye candy!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 PM) : 

I've been to Cinque Terre, but not Portofino. However, the other 4 cities are amazing.


Blogger Tara's Dolce Vita said ... (9:42 AM) :
