On the Street....Conference on Style, Pitti Uomo

Comments on "On the Street....Conference on Style, Pitti Uomo"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 AM) : stylish isn't THAT?the expressions to go with it....mmm..BELLISSIMO davvero! :)


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (9:50 AM) : 

love the separates on the gentleman on the right. And I love the gentleman's coat on the left, and his soft gray colors are very nice with the brown shoes. I notice his top buckle on shoe is undone also.


Blogger Nouman said ... (9:50 AM) : 

for some reason I think the colors would work better on the opposite person.


Blogger stylethread said ... (9:51 AM) : 

I love the punches of orange and blue against the classic tan windowpane plaid.

the other guy is looking a little tweedle dee proportionately, but I love the mix of brown and gray. It's also interesting how his face matches his shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 AM) : 

wonderfull co-ordination from the guy on the left, particulary around the shoe and face areas.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 AM) : 

this picture just made my day.


Blogger The Khaki Crusader said ... (10:24 AM) : 

lino is one tan man. that dove grey DB overcoat with the military shoulders is pretty unreal


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:26 AM) : 

WOW -- I wish the womens style at the moment was as remotely interesting.



Blogger Dominica said ... (10:27 AM) : 

Love the "ton-sur-ton" effect of the left man ...


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (10:28 AM) : 

An example of how to "gray" gracefully.


Blogger norawoah said ... (10:46 AM) : 

oh wow! Those shoes with the buckles, and the color, and the toes! An amazing choice!


Anonymous Clinton said ... (10:53 AM) : 

Uomo on the right: "son, your pants are too short, your cuffs are too big and you forgot to do one of your monk straps.
Uomo on the left: "sir, your pants are too long, your gussetted pockets look awkward and your color combinations are overly flamboyant."
Yet they both look great. A wonderful juxtaposition of different approaches to men's style. Instructive and elegant. Thanks Sart.


Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Both the coat & jacket are great! Good combo of blue and gold on the right.


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

I love the flame colored pocket square that the gentleman on the right has.


Blogger :::b r a n d i::: said ... (12:03 PM) : 

Those buckle-y shoes are fabulous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 PM) : 

both outfits seem much self conscious, like, er outfits.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Great contrasts.

The fabric on the bespoke db coat and the Italian-cuffed trousers on the left are superbly coordinated.
Two blues on tie and scarf show a subdued and cool approach to winter. Gloves in chest pocket - flair.

The sport coat and pocket square, orange vest(I'm assuming it is a vest) and the blue check shirt lets it pop.
Great details on both coats, I especially like the pockets on the sport coat and the tabs at the waist. Is that a gentleman's hunting sport coat?

And the photo was taken at just the right time - great narrative in their expressions!


Blogger Alicia said ... (12:31 PM) : 

shoes on the left, pocket square on the right. divine.


Blogger Sui Generis - Me said ... (12:42 PM) : 

i love the whole italiano look for the gentleman on the left... the tie knot and the shoes!
i love everything about the other gentlemans sportcoat! the pocket, the waist tabs and even the overlaps near the shoulder blades!


Blogger sallymandy said ... (1:08 PM) : 

oh, to live in a place where men pay this much attention to their clothing...wonderful!


Blogger diane said ... (1:09 PM) : 

I love what they are wearing, but I wonder if the proportions might be better if they switched jackets.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:28 PM) : 

Lino is so stylin.....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

how lovely to see stylish men of a certain age


Anonymous desertwind said ... (3:48 PM) : 

The chap on the right reminds me of Keenan Wynn.



Blogger Laurence John said ... (4:28 PM) : 

too flouncy, both of them.


Blogger Mohammad said ... (4:33 PM) : 

Hey! Lino again, I like his sense of choosing right color and combination of them. And the coat is really cool specially with those military shoulder (we call it "poonak" in Persian).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:40 PM) : 

Gorgeous little details. Those two-toned buckle shoes! That flame-colored handkerchief!


Blogger green lantern said ... (4:55 PM) : 

Well captured pic. I am not currently into the larger armholes, fuller cut jackets. Both men are well put together for their tastes. Buckle the shoe please. This looks like the "Hip Hop undone Addidas laces look for the Bespoke set"...I don't like...


Blogger Devin said ... (5:27 PM) : 

The guy on the right reeeaaaaally reminds me of Joe Ades, the NYC carrot-peeler salesman. Anyone else see it?


Anonymous FASHBASHSOUNDCLASH said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Very well dressed gentlemen!
Great sharp looks, love the tailored chequed jacket.

Fashbashsoundclash! X


Blogger Marcel Memed said ... (5:32 PM) : 

so very italian. but the guy on the left is less conventional with his ludwig ii & xix. century romantic mode.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:49 PM) : 

Hey, what's the name of the left man? I know I've seen him before...somewhere!


Blogger secondvurss said ... (5:59 PM) : 

definitely feelin' the guy on the right- love the kerchief!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:09 PM) : 

What a fantastic photo - both so decked out in their completely different but completely individual styles - Each so interested in each other (or are they - both turned ever so slightly towards you) LOVE it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:05 PM) : 

wow, lino's hair is getting long. i'd like to get a better look at his blazer, looks like a hint of orange in there. the buttons on his overcoat match him well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:05 PM) : 

Does this conference publish its proceedings? I hope so.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:32 PM) : 




Anonymous Brook and Lyn said ... (8:21 PM) : 

On the last photo the pockets on the gentleman on the right is very sweet. Also the contrast of the colors on his shirt with the jacket is quite nice as well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:12 PM) : 

i love this people that put themselves together carefully, aware of the details. their age gives them confidence, they feel confortable with themselves, they know their bodies well and what suits them and are not afraid anymore, why would they be? fashion is only that, fashion, yet i see a sense of ritual in the way they dress, a sense of order older than them... the man on the right totally steals my gaze, he is such a gentleman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:22 PM) : 

The man on the right = perfect style


Blogger UES boy said ... (9:41 PM) : 

is the man on the left Lino?


Blogger John Christopher said ... (10:39 PM) : 

I have monk traps just like that, although I try to strap all the straps usually.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 PM) : 

This is all about Town Italian vs. Country English. Clinton, you've nailed this concept with your little script. One could write a book about men's fashion related to this picture.
As an experiment, I'd like each of them to switch their outfits exactly, and watch each of them tailor and tweak it in their own way. I know the Italian would still end up looking Italian and the Brit would still make it British. And that is, I think, the point of style entirely. Not what, but how. Well, maybe a little what...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:56 PM) : 

And yes, Devin, I can see what you're talking about. I'll tell Mr. Ades you say "Hello".


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:30 AM) : 

a monk strap boot or shoe is very distinct and shall i say daring even?- 'stina


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:45 AM) : 

i think this photo reminds us that even the very well groomed are still plain flawed humans like the rest of us. I love it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:47 AM) : 

the man in the grey looks a bit like the mad hatter from Alice in Wonderland


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:41 AM) : 

I adore those shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:55 AM) : 

what a great meeting! Lino Ielluzzi (on the left) meets Francesco Maglia, one of the well-known italian umbrellas producers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:23 AM) : 

What is Pitti Uomo??


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

So, so fantastic. I would have loved to have witnessed a moment like this one in 'real life'.


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (5:34 PM) : 

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 PM) : 

I rarely comment on the pictures, but holly s*** do the Italians have it or what! (capital intended)



Anonymous crowsfeet said ... (10:08 PM) : 

stop me if you've heard this one...

and Italian and an Englishman walk into a bar...

I know they are both Italian...Does that jacket on the right come with a Beretta 20 gauge (???? Those pockets were meant to hold shells!) I hunt pheasant with a Beretta and I NEVER EVER EVER look that good at 4:30 in the morning...


Anonymous Panseop said ... (4:18 AM) : 

I took photos with Lino last week in his shop, Al Bazar. Must visit if U R in Milan.


Blogger said ... (10:55 AM) : 

WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT???? Two men who have such wonderful, wonderful, wonderful personal styles simply cannot be talking about the price of espresso. I'd give a monkey to know what they're talking about. On their own each is wonderful, but this photo putting them together is just exquisite.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:57 AM) : 

the guy on the left looks like Polansky


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 AM) : 

is this Roman Polansky on the left?


Anonymous Mr Ivy said ... (12:58 PM) : 

There is something special with how the Italians wear their Rolexes. It often looks so darn natural and "devil may care" but very stylish. My impression is that they often wear them quite loose. In any other country wearing a Rolex looks to "overstated" and flashy. Just my 2 cents.


Blogger Charm said ... (10:28 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 AM) : 

The gent on the right is China Maglia and owns/runs the oldest hand made umbrella company in Italy (I believe 6 generations in the family). Check them out !


Anonymous ANNA PAOLA said ... (1:01 PM) : 



Blogger Alexander said ... (12:26 AM) : 

So rare to see a cinched back jacket instead of a half-norfolk - fantastic detailing on the tweed, the pockets are rather spiffing as well...


Blogger Mz. Paulzen said ... (2:48 PM) : 

Sometimes I feel like it's easier for men to look artistic and eccentric(yet elegant)than it is for women. Am I right? If a woman combined these colors and textures, would it be as notable?


Anonymous ghazi said ... (7:15 PM) : 

I know that one can see it everywhere now in Milan and elsewhere but I'm yet to be warmed to the idea of so short pants(gentleman left)! It shows too much of the shoe no matter how stylish the shoes(light brown?!) could be. It has always been critical to me( as to many great dressers) that the pants should at least cover the top of the shoe. It's not about dictats but a question of elegant and stylish DROP. Furthermore, I don't see the pants on the gentleman on the right are right either, for they, on the other hand, are a notch too long! They're not having that one nice single break on the top of the shoe which again gives an elegant drop. The fact that the cuffs are way too flimsy is not helping, of course..
