Wow, this guy is looking straight at me directly through your lens!
Great picture!
Very elegant, Mr Pipoli!!


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (9:20 AM) : 

I am sure there's something brilliant about this outfit. I look forward to one of the other commenters breaking it down to my level. Starting with the hair, and continuing with the suit, I just plain dont like this. Jorge from W Palm Beach

Great portrait! It makes me want to know more about Signor Pipoli.


Anonymous Mademoiselle said ... (9:30 AM) : 

Love this picture! His head is so particular, we can stay so long just watching it. I love the pose too.

I really love this picture!!


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (9:44 AM) : 

wow.. very nice. look at that stare. Love the pop of yellow under his vest. Nice portrait!


Blogger Darcy said ... (9:45 AM) : 

I feel like his look says "You're wearing that in my city?"

Frightening and stunning.


Anonymous said ... (9:50 AM) : 

I think in this case it's not what he's wearing - not at all.

It's HOW he's wearing it.

That's what style is.

(And a cocked eyebrow never hurts.)

wow. so powerful.


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

Terrific! The photography, the pose, the cigarette smoke, the awesome suit...the yellow T makes it look modern and the black pocket handkerchief is very suave. Signor Pipoli looks like the sort of man who can tell great stories.


Blogger The Khaki Crusader said ... (10:08 AM) : 

That suit works for him and him alone. Don't try this at home.


Anonymous Edoardo said ... (10:37 AM) : 

He's wearing an American Apparel's tee!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:38 AM) : 

Nicely done! He picked up on the yellow and black stripes to make a bold statement... this outfit is for fun!


Blogger Foster Huntington said ... (10:46 AM) : 

this is amazing. it could easily be into the American west.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 AM) : 

Oh wow, this could have been taken in a studio. I love how he's wearing his vest. Or the way it went that way accidentally.


Blogger Lucky girl said ... (11:15 AM) : 

He's awesome!


Blogger MySpecialStash said ... (11:17 AM) : 

Wow! This reminds me of an Egon Schiele self-portrait!


Anonymous Mark said ... (11:26 AM) : 

Yellow and brown are not a good combination. Period. And I agree with you, Jorge.


Blogger Sabrina said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Love the striped suit and shot of yellow.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:31 AM) : 

He is so cool. I'd let him punch me in the face.


Blogger Filipe said ... (11:34 AM) : 

Western spaghetti. I agree with Jorge from W Palm. From the streak of hair standing out, to the pen and the gold bracelet. It's all too much or nothing much at all. Nice yellow tee. The suit looks cheap.


Blogger norawoah said ... (11:37 AM) : 

Vincent Price comes to mind...


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (11:46 AM) : 

What is he wearing under the jacket?


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (11:46 AM) : 

What is he wearing under the jacket?


Blogger diane said ... (12:03 PM) : 

The man has "presence". xo

My word ver. is boinck, I kid you not.


Blogger Stacy said ... (12:06 PM) : 

The look on his face is too perfect.


Anonymous emmet said ... (12:26 PM) : 

this id perfect example of being post 40's age of men. Brave,rock n roll and good looking..just perfect!!


Anonymous princess glee said ... (12:31 PM) : 

I've been staring at this pic for the last 15 mins. and I don't know what to say. Run?


Blogger wonderkammern said ... (1:24 PM) : 

This is great. I want to know him.

Also, Filipe my first thoughts weren't so much spaghetti western as they were Gangs of New York extra.


Blogger southerngentinL.A. said ... (1:36 PM) : 

Cool. Just plain Cool. You don't dress like this if you don't have a great story to tell!


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

His may not be the greatest suit and his hair may need management, but I'd wager that--unlike many of the Milanese men featured on this blog in recent weeks--this man's trousers don't end at his ankles.


Blogger Juliet said ... (1:58 PM) : 

Well, there's attitude!

I love this photo. I want to know this guy, drink wine with him and swap stories. I'll bet he's surrounded with laughing grandchildren, beautiful women and dangerous relatives.


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Jim Ignatowski from "Taxi".


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:35 PM) : 

This is the definition of "swagger!" One of the more interesting portraits I have seen recently!


Blogger cami falcão said ... (2:54 PM) : 

awesome portrait.


Blogger Dari said ... (4:05 PM) : 

This guy screams cool and sexy! I love it. I love the whole look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 PM) : 

his pose and stare remind me of bill hader from saturday night live.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (6:05 PM) : 

He looks so charmingly disreputable!


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (6:18 PM) :

Christopher Lloyd "Back to the Future" with SNAP! He is sharp as a tack an twice as deadly.


Blogger Dorothy said ... (8:45 PM) : 

Wow..I love this aha..makes me want to meet this guy!


Blogger John Christopher said ... (9:23 PM) : 

This is just awesome, although the miss placed hair is so goddamn distracting.


Blogger Rococo Cocoa is Joe said ... (9:31 PM) : 

This would be a perfect photograph if it wasnt for that loose lock of hair.


Blogger Shadow Hand said ... (10:01 PM) : 

He reminds me of Robin Williams in "The Birdcage".


Blogger Bite the Weenie said ... (10:59 PM) : 

whoa!! and wow!!

we could never understand his perspective on life.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 AM) : 

i imagine him in 50s square and snug swim pants. he seems very vital and his hands seem like he is very young.


Blogger Isaac said ... (12:50 AM) : 

Oh man, this guy wins!


Blogger Jessica said ... (2:32 AM) : 

i would totally makeout with him


Blogger sallymandy said ... (2:44 AM) : 

Wow, he's absolutely striking. His yellow shirt pops out, but not more than that expression on his face. Makes me want to find out more about him. He's definitely cool.

That is one of those suits that you think is too much when you see it on the rail but looks amazing on. Love it.


Blogger Olviya said ... (9:02 AM) : 

hmm, he is intriguing...
is he an artist?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:25 AM) : 

What is this LOOK? What would you call it? I want it defined so that I an emulate it.


Blogger Pampered Potato said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Reminds me of a character from some sort of crime solving film/show,only he's jumped off the screen into real life, love it x

Who is next to the sun… it doesn't feel cold.
You are special,indeed.


Blogger Conor and Siobhan said ... (10:37 AM) : 

Superb. What's not to like?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:00 PM) : 

I love this! I would like to say, that it's because of the great combination of brown, yellow and black in an informal mix of the delicate suit and the casual shirt, but to be honest I wouldn't have noticed any of this without the attitude - the way you wear your clothes means anything to a great outfit!

Blogger Daman said ... (6:43 PM) : 

So much character! His expression reminds me of the villan from Gangs of New York.


Blogger travelbug said ... (9:01 PM) : 

Is he a mafioso, a violinist or a baker?

this guy knows what panache means !!! But a cool panache... !!! Wonderfull !


Anonymous Andrew said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Love the way the asymmetry of the waistcoat(I think) over the yellow tee. Don't think it works with the suit though - would be better with dark jeans and no jacket. Think it's quite obvious that the sheer character of the man is what carries the whole outfit, the clothing combination on it's own doesn't really work.


Anonymous Paul Shrewsbury UK said ... (10:49 AM) : 

Are there too many statements here?


Blogger Cheryl said ... (6:02 PM) : 

Wow, what a theatrical looking guy. A modern day Dickens character.


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

Dali lives!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:20 PM) : 

The only other men I could see pulling this outfit off are Daniel Day Lewis and Salvador Dali. And I love the "I don't take myself too seriously" gaze.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

Yes! Even though he doesn't take himself too seriously, I think he wants you to take him seriously, just to see . . . :)


Blogger dM said ... (7:08 PM) : 

Very dignified pose.


Blogger from a to b and backagain said ... (1:20 PM) :
