On the Street....Green Gloves, Florence

Comments on "On the Street....Green Gloves, Florence"


Blogger Hek said ... (4:54 PM) : 

He looks so cool, the way he combines white trousers with the brown, and then green glowes and the blue scarf makes his look unique.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:01 PM) : 

Awesome! True style in a complete package. Very good indeed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:02 PM) : 

That's a stunning photo. LOVE his style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:04 PM) : 

I love tight white pants in the winter.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:05 PM) : 

Love the whole look esp the bit of blue peeking out at the collar


Blogger Sarah said ... (5:07 PM) : 

i don't typically care for white pants, but here, somehow, my prejudice doesn't even factor. maybe it is the boots with the gloves and hat or maybe it is just him - whatever it is, it works. he looks so so cool.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (5:20 PM) : 

The gloves, the scarf and the shoes are the 3 pops of color in this outfit, everything else is just the perfect mat and frame for them. The coat and pants seem to fit him very well. It is interesting how men's fashion magazines always tell you to get leather jackets, but nothing below the waist; and here is one presumably fashion insider doing the opposite and pulling it off. Great job! Jorge from W Palm Beach

i love colorful gloves!!!!!
great outfit


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:23 PM) : 

Loving how the colours in the tie/scarf tie in with the gloves. And the jacket. Great photo!


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (5:23 PM) : 

everything here works harmoniously to create an entire thing of beauty.



Blogger Dr. Debonaire said ... (5:25 PM) : 

i LOVE his jacket. the gloves are nice, too.


Blogger Ralph said ... (5:27 PM) : 

I like the contrast of leathers with the white pants, brilliant.


Blogger LINnY said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Despite the lack of differing textures, the variations of color amongst the leather coat, gloves and shoes looks ultra-refined and polished. The paleness of the brown and green allowed for the creation of a "light" look despite the usage of such a heavy material. The seperation of color provided from the sleeves peeking out and the ascot prevent the outfit from looking washed out.


Blogger Emy Augustus said ... (5:30 PM) : 

ah i see the trend is asians wearing little bright bits of color!


Blogger Kevin Tailored said ... (5:35 PM) : 

Boots are clean, but its throwing it off a little with the leather trench. I Understand with the contrast but I think it would look different if it was a standing photograph. I'm gonna have to get my white slim fit on deck though, super clean.

Your that dude Scott! Bringing inspiration since September 2005


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 PM) : 

this picture is brilliant


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:40 PM) : 

everything about this image is beautiful.


Blogger August Clothing said ... (5:47 PM) : 

Great shot, great style! I wonder what he's thinking about...


Blogger Sarah said ... (5:50 PM) : 

Not all men can pull off wearing a leather jacket, especially not with those colours. Amazing use of colours and style combination. Slim fit on men...he definitely suits it perfectly. Love it!


Blogger Kevin Tailored said ... (5:51 PM) : 

The boots are throwing me off a little with the leather jacket. I think if it was a standing photograph it would all come together well. Still looks good though, and i've got to get my white slim fits on deck.

Your that dude Scott! Inspirational since 2005!


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

inspired by michelle obama??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:17 PM) : 

yes but how on earth does he keep those pants clean??


Blogger tanya said ... (6:20 PM) : 

i love his shoes.


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

Blogger t does wool said ... (6:34 PM) : 

green leather...amazing...and he looks good,too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:49 PM) : 

Macho macho man.
I don't like the too-snug jeans. White pants, I think, should be worn just a bit loose; it's a far sexier look.


Blogger Kelsie.Lynn said ... (6:59 PM) : 

I love the awkward-ness of his position, it makes the photo look so much more intense. he is truly a man with great style.


Blogger Paul Baxendale said ... (7:01 PM) : 

oh my goodness... this fellow is THE definition of cool, and it has nothing to do with the cigarette. He ROCKS every stitch he is wearing. I am especially enjoying the boots and killer green gloves. I also quite like how you've got him perched on that unique aggregate wall/planter... complements his look very well, somehow. Top Notch!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 PM) : 

Those shoes are it


Blogger lenmeister said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Veery well done, white pants and green gloves, this is an epitome picture of how unconventional great style really is. I'd never think green gloves could look so well on a man..luv everything about this.
The way this is going the sart might have to post a photographer in Florence, great shots back to back from there!


Blogger Joy Zaczyk said ... (7:32 PM) : 

Proof that no white after Labour Day is pure nonsense....
(LOVE the jacket btw)


Blogger Pepa Xavier said ... (7:38 PM) : 

ohhh Dio Mio!! Quanta nostalgia di questa bella cità! Amo quando Lei posta foti di anonimi à Firenze!! Auguri!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:38 PM) : 


but this photo does bring up an issue I've had. Don't you think his leather jacket is being scuffed by sitting on it on a such a rough rocky surface? I know everytime I'm wearing a nice jacket I mind my surroundings- so if I was him I would probably just enjoy my cig standing up!

love the shoes too


Blogger The Urban Gentleman Blog said ... (7:45 PM) : 

i adore, his shoes... the green gloves. it would have been flawless without the skully and cig.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:46 PM) : 

yea more htan the gloves..the SHOES!! love the whole outfit..well the jacket least because it looks kind of vinyl-y and is a BIT clashing with the shoes. but the beanie, gloves, white pants and shoes make up for it! and no-no on the cigarette...though he looks cool with it..


Blogger swilek said ... (8:05 PM) : 

I am struck that in many of your pictures people are smoking. I am not a fan of smoking but these Europeans make it look sexy!!:)


Blogger Emily said ... (8:19 PM) : 

Great shot! I'm really liking the photos you're getting of men in white pants. They pull it off so well!


Blogger denney said ... (8:25 PM) : 

the colors are incredible! and what flawless white pants.


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

Does anyone know the brand of his shoes?


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

WOW! He's stylin'.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:03 PM) : 

the scarf...the shoes...the leather jacket...and those gloves all paired with those white pants just look absolutely fabulous. The neutral colors of the pants and the jacket really accent the different colors of the glove and the scarf. love it!


Blogger Tim said ... (9:05 PM) : 

I think Michelle Obama has the same gloves...


Blogger pulp+witticism said ... (9:25 PM) : 

Insouciance. When I see this photo I imagine how he may have stumbled out of bed, instinctively chosen what he wanted to wear and somehow (sheer taste) it all came together. Nothing from this head to toe look was bought as an "outfit" -- it is a collaboration of pieces that he loves. That, my friend, cannot be bought. Beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:32 PM) : 

I love the contrast of the leather jacket and the silk scarf. A great juxtaposition.


Blogger RJ said ... (9:44 PM) : 

I ADORE his shoes!


Blogger Aussie said ... (9:48 PM) : 

the color combination is great.


Blogger junglesiren said ... (9:51 PM) : 

He's perfection. I love the leather trench... but it's those shoes! I've got to get some in deep purple.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 PM) : 

Love those shoes, especially contrasting against the white bottoms. I'm probably on crack saying this, but I think the jacket looks cheap. Like I said, it's probably me.


Blogger Laura said ... (10:17 PM) : 

Isn't that the same guy in one of the other recent photos?

He's got it goin' on! Except for the cigarette. He could definitely lose that, a mon avis.


Blogger diane said ... (10:21 PM) : 

I am sure I have seen this man recently, and he was brilliantly dressed then too.


Blogger John Danner said ... (10:55 PM) : 

Wow, the shoes....just ahhhhh want them


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:24 PM) : 

Very envious of the trench, shoes (boots?) and gloves! Great colors, amazing textures.


Blogger KC said ... (11:40 PM) : 

Amazing. The gloves are to die for. Lovely, lovely picture- if only he got rid of the ciggie... :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:44 PM) : 

yes! green gloves... just like lady M.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:06 AM) : 

I am in L.O.V.E......swoon.
I could wear his clothes as well.


Blogger Bedlam said ... (12:15 AM) : 

love this coat!!!


Blogger bridget said ... (12:29 AM) : 

the texture of the gloves and coat match nicely and the warm colors work well together with the rough, ragged surface of the ledge he's perched on. great capture!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:44 AM) : 

I like how this guy is breaking "rules" that other people make about clothing (white jeans, eg).

If you have confidence in your own style, you can wear what you want.

It makes me wonder whether I would look cool if the Sartorialist photographed me or if I would look like a dolt. I am afraid I know the answer already!


Blogger Dominica said ... (1:48 AM) : 

White trousers are diificult to pull off. It's a thin line between funky and swim-teacher...
But, he has made a great combination with that fabulous brown leather jacket and the scarf and his gloves give the look a bit of an edge ...

Love it !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:03 AM) : 

This only "happens" at Pitti Uomo.. But what a Look:-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:43 AM) : 

This brings to mind the green leather gloves that Michelle Obama wore during the Inauguration.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:53 AM) : 

A fabuolus outfit, almost eny man could wear this and look good! The gloves are nice.


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

i am in love :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:50 AM) : 

GREAT style from head to toe. Love the shoes. And I think I need a pair of white jeans.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:19 AM) : 

wow, his shoes. I want them.


Blogger JP said ... (5:47 AM) : 

I agree,somehow the white pants are working fine with the earth tones - the texture of the wall he is sitting doesn't hurt either- great shot!


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

this some guy who creates trends...awesome shoes and scarf!


Blogger Olviya said ... (7:01 AM) : 

i would add - and blue scarf...
so fresh!


Blogger Lucinda said ... (7:15 AM) : 

Whenever I visit this blog I always look eagerly at the clothes forgetting that I'm actually looking at images carefully composed by a photographer. However I just jumped back to this page after browsing some other sites and realised how interesting this photo is as an image or piece of art. I love how the mossy white pebble wall compliments his outfit and how his relaxed pose contrasts to the shuffling people in the background.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:20 AM) : 

love this.

the colours are all pieced together perfectly. Wish i could see a shot of him standing up just to see the clothes, but this is a beautiful picture. His pose makes the whole thing look effortless, even though it's obvious that he chose his outfit with great care.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:01 AM) : 

Shoes are the highlight of the outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

I'm crazy about his leather trench and shoes. What a clean look! And two very smart touches- the scarf and gloves.


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Gloves pants and shoes- killer!


Blogger The Spicers said ... (9:36 AM) : 

What a great combination of colors and textures!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:27 AM) : 

Leather is such a beautiful material and I´m glad it´s making a come-back!


Blogger Hadley Makes said ... (10:35 AM) : 

I love the way he's sitting in this photo, the lines of his body, just as much as I like his clothes!


Blogger Laura said ... (12:06 PM) : 

Very Michelle Obama


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

Those boots! I want those boots!


Blogger Peyda's Closet said ... (12:30 PM) : 

He's such a gorgeous Japanese man with his Samurai features...

I love the blue scarf, it's such a beautiful contrast against the brown and white....

Lubu (not Peyda)


Blogger soulbitch. said ... (2:26 PM) : 

the coat, the shoes, the gloves and the scarf... omg i love them!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:53 PM) : 

Is anyone else thinking of the famous green gloves worn by a certain First Lady on Inauguration Day??


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

I want those gloves. Green is such a good accent color...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 PM) : 

Leather is made to be beaten and scuffed and loved...sure smoking is bad, but then so is eating donuts (no nutritional value) too...he enjoys one of maybe his few unobstructed pleasures in great boots.


Blogger Rita said ... (5:02 PM) : 

I know this is way too general a statement, but I really think Asian guys always have the coolest and most unique style. They pull of sooo many things so effortlessly, and I think they are able to inspire both men and women at the same time.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:04 PM) : 

I like it. I like it a lot. He looks compact and neat and perfect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:08 PM) : 

Green Gloves by The National.

Maybe he listens to them.


Blogger Thomas said ... (6:40 PM) : 

i need those gloves!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 PM) : 

I love this not only for the killer style, but because the green gloves remind me of Michelle Obama's festive outfit on Inauguration Day!


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

I love how he is looking at his cigarette like it just asked him a question.


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

I love this! It's kind of off-kilter, but it works. I really appreciate his choice of colors--I love green and blue together. The rough texture of the boots and the soft sheen of the leather jacket are such an interesting combination. This blog is definitely at its best when showcasing unique individual style, not just safe choices or cookie cutter trends.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 PM) : 

If I were a guy, I'd want to dress like him!! Love it.


Blogger Doug said ... (11:51 PM) : 

his shoes are awesome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 AM) : 

how very michelle obama of him...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:44 AM) : 

Great shot, great matching of colours...

But I'm so sorry for his green gloves... When one smokes with gloves, then they smell cold tobacco for the rest of their life !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:26 PM) : 

Just awesome


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:41 PM) : 

What an amazing sense of style, he most definitley has it.


Blogger Damian said ... (1:52 PM) : 

im loving the whole outfit, not sure about the jacket. but the green gloves are the best.


Blogger KSK said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Absolutely smashing!

the shoes the shoes the shoes


Blogger Love + Cake said ... (3:44 PM) : 

This is fabulous.


Blogger Julicious Fashionicious said ... (4:42 PM) : 

I like his green gloves...But the deal in all his look,he is looking so nature,as he was born in all of these.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:25 PM) : 

the way he sits and the way he is holding his cigarette...even more unique than his great style i think


Blogger gilty pleasure said ... (6:01 PM) : 

and his style.omg.ahmazing.


Blogger Somebody said ... (6:29 PM) : 

This look is really working for him! I particularly love that little hint of blue at the neckline.

I used to have some green gloves that were very similar to those, and now I really miss them.


Blogger creative cookie said ... (8:49 PM) : 

Beyond stunning.


Blogger Tania said ... (10:50 PM) : 

this is genius. i love the colors.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:01 PM) : 

I love the green gloves and the white pants


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

Only someone creative could put this together. He has a very good eye. Yes brown and green go together. Let's thank nature!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:51 PM) : 

He looks hot!!!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 PM) : 

the white trouser is impeccable, but all the different colors, especially those forest green gloves, make them seem so crisp.
That leather trench is amazing, too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:51 AM) : 

the green gloves, the brown shoes, the white pants, the blue scarf, the mocha jacket, the black hat, the cigarette,his facial expression, the pose ... even the gravel - that confuses the eye of the observer and make the guy look kind of suspended in the air, kind of still trying to walk down the wall while the rest of his body is still sitting...
this picture is a piece of art!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 AM) : 

I love this shots a pair of crisp white pants with brown shoes always wins. Thats a quick sure way to add some classiness to your look it never fails


Blogger R/V said ... (12:44 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:22 PM) : 

The thing I love the most about this photo is his carelessness. Would you sit on mossy green pebbles if you were wearing white trousers? (Would you sit in the garden at all?) Would you sit on a rough surface in your shiny leather coat? Would you combine these colours?

The wall he is sitting on is quite high. It was not designed as a seat, and he would have had to jump to get up there. I bet nobody else is sitting on that wall on this cold winter's day.

This man seems to be artistic, athletic and introspective. He has a natural confidence in his style and he's not 'precious' about it.

I would like to meet him. I think I would like him a lot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

What an amazing look! And an amazing photo! He looks great and in a way that a normal guy could pull off.

Where can you buy gloves like that? Europe, I suppose. It's like sox. Go to your average American department store and you see black, blue, brown, tan, and white. Go to the Bon Marche in Paris, and they have every color of the rainbow (and so I spent more on sox there in one day than I've probably spent in my entire life in America).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:08 AM) : 

i'm in awe. rare are the people who can actually wear that amount of colors so well studied and perfectly combined. i am particularly admiring the shoes and the gloves. again, love the colour combination!!
Not to mention, white pants during winter look odd, difinitely not in this case!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:59 PM) : 

Love it. I want his cravat!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:11 PM) : 

Ooooh! Forget the threads, HE is incroyable and delicious! Have to say, though, the silk scarf that ties in ever so slightly with the gloves - that's a great touch. I wonder if the buckle on the shoe was meant to echo the one on the jacket. Bit much then, but still - WOW.


Blogger Danny Choy said ... (12:00 AM) : 

awesome monk straps.

Oh, man, I love this! The gloves, the blue at the collar and those shoes really make this stand out. Really nice.
