Variation on a theme

3 coats 3 pinstriped suits. Europeans are so much better dressed than Americans.

 

Blogger bee_lizard queen said ... (5:38 PM) : 

camel coats. I'm allergic.

 

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

Love the coats, but black shoes with a navy suit... ugh!

 

Blogger Andrew said ... (6:10 PM) : 

^ Look at Comme they do a lot of navy with black.

 

Blogger Rebecca Leão said ... (6:11 PM) : 

Very beutiful coats! Both men are well-dressed. The one with the buttons behind is fantastic!

 

Blogger Hillary said ... (6:12 PM) : 

I just saw a guy today (waiting for the train here in Chicago) who would have been totally unremarkable except that he had this amazing long, fitted, Camel-colored wool coat. I couldn't stop staring...at his coat.

 

Blogger diane said ... (6:25 PM) : 

Nice looking coats, they leave a nice impression.

 

Blogger lenmeister said ... (6:41 PM) : 

I think these guys should switch coats lol The slimmer gentleman in front would stand out more wearing a belted back camel coat with wide cuffs, and the bulkier gentleman in the back could've gone with the more simple and trimmer coat the guy in front of him has on. Not to be anal about this, both these gentlemen look great, but from my perspective being a wider torso guy, keeping my coats classic and trimmer really wrks for me. Of course this is open for discussion.

so cool!

I am surprised to see that almost all the europeans captured here have cuffed pants which is not that common in North American. It was 10 years ago.

 

Blogger Simone said ... (7:52 PM) : 

ahhhhhh the back view..love it!

 

Blogger J.A.F. said ... (8:01 PM) : 

i've been obsessing over camel hair coats all winter and have not found a singel one I liked. The states are well behind Italy.

 

Blogger Sartorial Vancouver said ... (8:09 PM) : 

I love the fit of the coat across the upper back of the gentleman on the left - clean and trim.

 

Blogger viviane said ... (8:55 PM) : 

I wish some cold...

In Brazil its summer! Not the most ellegant season.

 

Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (9:07 PM) : 

Who on Earth said black shoes don't go with navy suits- the Bravo Network?

 

Anonymous -anna- said ... (9:27 PM) : 

the first guy looks like he's in the army/was in the army...his haircut looks like its cut in a military fashion.

 

Blogger Roger said ... (11:25 PM) : 

Anon is quite right, the black shoes with the blue suit, not so good. His coat really does not fit that well either - notice the bulk in the sleeves. The gent walking in front is well turned out - great choc brown shoes and great fit on the coat. The sleeves are slim, the shoulders trim and tailored and the sleeve length is perfect.

 

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

I like the navy with the camel coat,
nice to see that the camel coats move in pairs :)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:38 AM) : 

Years of working in law firms I saw only black shoes with navy suits. To me, brown shoes are less formal, though they can work in the proper setting.
I adore these coats. A relief from funereal black.

 

Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (2:43 AM) : 

they both look nice. but i prefere the left one.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 AM) : 

Love these coats! The gentleman in front looks perfect, well fit...the bigger man behind him looks fine too, and although some people don't agree with the pairing of a navy suit and black shoes, I thought it looked fine because his camel coat is in a much lighter shade than the other man's. Maybe he could've gone with dark brown shoes? But it's not so bad.

 

Blogger Gabriela said ... (4:34 AM) : 

Beautiful, I love to see the variation! Thanks!

 

Anonymous gladys said ... (5:49 AM) : 

Odd one rarely sees camel coats in England anymore.

 

OpenID mensfreestyle said ... (6:46 AM) : 

Two very different cuts, but both gentlemen seem to be working their own well. The guy on the left has the more fitted, classic-looking coat, which appears to suit his straight-backed, formal posture - whereas the guy on the left appears to have matched a more relaxed fit to his relaxed posture. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it...

 

Anonymous baballa said ... (6:51 AM) : 

So elegants!!!

 

Anonymous Nei said ... (6:53 AM) : 

Gostei dos dois, mas o da frente gostei mais ainda. Não sou do metier, mas o sapato preto não me convenceu.

 

Blogger Gabriel said ... (8:11 AM) : 

I do not understand why you don't like navy suit with black shoes.. What would you had him were?

 

Blogger Sarah said ... (8:17 AM) : 

it's, like, the big trend !!
very smart

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:48 AM) : 

The one on the right is too classic (old) style , i prefer the left one.
About the cuffed pants, for us (Italian) all the pants generally have to be cuffed but for the smoking and sporty pants(jeans-cotton-summer linen). not a law but it's better to have it.
About the navy suit and black shoes it's correct, i prefer dark brown but it's less formal.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:56 AM) : 

Polo coats are too cool and warm to boot. I have a corded double-breasted coat and might in line to acquire a pristine vintage Hickey Freeman that is reminiscent of Lauren's classic Polo Coat. When you are in a great topcoat, winter bows at your feet instead of around your neck and down your back as it would in lesser gear.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:23 PM) : 

These man look so elegant!

I love the dark hair (especially the little bit of dark grey above his ears) for some reason...maybe because it makes the colour of his coat look more deep?

I was wondering if there is a possibility to make a new movie for Style.com during your stay in Florence or Milano (''The Sartorialist strikes again?'') I always love to watch the intersection videos...

Keep up the good work Sart!

 

Blogger Emily said ... (3:24 PM) : 

Love the coats!

 

Blogger Stephanie said ... (4:31 PM) : 

Ahhh, here we go...more beautiful men of all ages, in stylish coats...yum!
These recent photos make me want to go somewhere cold in Europe, just so I can watch handsome men in overcoats walk by!

 

Blogger Chloe said ... (5:47 PM) : 

Camel coat, check.
Fitted slacks, a little too short, check.
Zany leather shoes, check.
Jewel-hued scarf, check.

^^Chic European Menswear^^

Am I right?

 

Blogger Richard said ... (9:28 PM) : 

The camel jacket is the go to overcoat/topcoat in my opinion. The only style that I prefer more is a herringbone tweed, but if an individual can have only one, then it should be a camel coat.

 

Blogger BobKentNoVa said ... (11:58 AM) : 

Sart, I've had a fondness for camel hair blazers for many years. In fact I just bought a new one this season. It stands out and brings in many complements.

Blogger RedPoppy said ... (2:30 PM) : 

I've often wondered how much more dapper our American Presidents would look if they wore a handsome camel coat on Inauguration Day....

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:05 AM) : 

Compliment to those people that have written that the black shoes are all right with the coat camel navy style! They knows the elegance and the tradition.

 

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

But does nobody know that the coat of camel is permitted to wear it with the Tuxedo??? Then with the black shoes.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:22 AM) : 

The brown shoes are not all right with the navy suit.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:09 PM) : 

Does fit matter? Sometimes. Maybe here it doesn't. Maybe it just says that he sexy.

 

Blogger Benoit said ... (7:57 AM) : 

Since I saw Shutter Island, I definitely want one of those camel coats (the two marshals were some at the beggining)

 

Blogger Eric said ... (2:58 PM) : 

It's really not even fair to compare American fashion with Italy. They're so far ahead, and really, they care a lot more. I don't know many men here who would bother with fashion. These coats are very nice. I really like he one with the buttons in the back. And the black with navy works, I think.
