I have such a "thing" for older gentleman! (alas... I note the ring on his wedding finger.) Incredibly confident in his purple sweater, and his ever-so-slightly snug plaid wool trousers. Beautiful face. (men age in the most wonderful way...)


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (9:28 AM) : 

The combination of purple, olive and grey is genius (so Marni)!


Anonymous Marco T. said ... (9:29 AM) : 

hello Scott… in your photographies this man is always much elegant one and has of look a lot glamour… but who is? great taste… is Italian boy?...bye bye...


Blogger Laguna Beach Trad said ... (9:39 AM) : 

Nice find. This old chap exudes style and confident attitude. I'm not sure I would wear such a jacket with the purple jumper, but his plaid trousers and scarf are beautifully provocative. I would like to know what kind of shoes he was wearing.


Blogger Ricardo said ... (9:39 AM) : 

Nice pants. Love this Italian cool distressed style.


Blogger Misanthropic Pulp said ... (9:41 AM) :

Blogger Jacqueline said ... (9:46 AM) : 

I love the green and purple together and the way he tied his scarf! xo

Adorable. I want to have lunch with him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 AM) : 

His trousers is beautifull and also the jumper inside the jacket! Ellegant sir!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

Suede is so delicious. Today, I wore my coffee brown M65 Army jacket with a collar like this man, but I don't look this bottle-green elegant. Timeless.


Blogger Alejo said ... (10:36 AM) : 

Lovely :)


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

Blogger MN SL&E said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Hm, I wonder what kind of shoes he is wearing.


Blogger Alisa said ... (10:47 AM) : 

Green and purple, love it!


Anonymous Cass said ... (10:58 AM) : 

I too have a thing for the older gent. He's dashing! Those pants are to die for.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:10 AM) : 

If I were 10 years older and a homewrecker (yes, I see the wedding ring), someone would be committing a felony and lovin it! This man screams oodles of charm. He's yummy.


Anonymous Kimmy said ... (11:12 AM) : 

Is that jacket green? In any case... this old man is pretty fly!


Blogger Pablo said ... (11:19 AM) :

Strongly resembles Robert De Niro.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 AM) : 

Elegant and sport.Green over purple like a picture of Mark Rothko (Thyssen Bornemisza Museum in Madrid).

Blogger la señorita said ... (12:45 PM) : 

Este señor, ha tenido que ser guapisimo cuando era joven.

Y es que el que tuvo, retuvo.

It's official. Smoking is cool!


Blogger eLee said ... (1:20 PM) : 

Love the pants and scarf!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:37 PM) : 

superb fit - right length sleeve, well fitted pants, right length sweater - & doesn't the scarf highlight his hair!


Anonymous Ilya T said ... (1:49 PM) : 

wow great mix of styles... forest green jacket! and the checkered grey works well with the purple and the white hair!

I bet he was wearing black brogues just like these:


Blogger A. said ... (1:51 PM) : 

What stuck out to me most was the purple color of his sweater. It's rare for me to find guys wearing that shade of color, but when it's pulled off well, it's a great look.

And the pants, the pants!! I want shorts with that plaid pattern.


Anonymous Kick It Girl-Seattle said ... (1:56 PM) : 

Who said smoking isn't sexy?


Blogger Prutha said ... (2:13 PM) : 

i could see this outfit on a 20 yr old boy...but he does a fab job too


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 PM) : 

this guy is the man - I hope to age as gracefully as he has. Elegant and humorous, a rare but appreciated combo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:25 PM) : 

Agree w/Anonymous 12:24-pants too tight. And lose the cigarette. Other than that, he's pretty cool.


Blogger Fashion Monstre said ... (2:48 PM) : 

what a good looking old fella! he has such fab taste too!!


Blogger Charles said ... (3:43 PM) : 



Blogger Alex Ingram said ... (3:53 PM) : 

i would wear this and it somehow works for him even though he is a older dude


Blogger Nedda Ebo said ... (3:58 PM) : 

what a fashionable old fellow!


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

He is a stylish older gent it's true. The photo was captivating til I scrolled down and got to the cigarette in his left hand. Smoking is never cool.


Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

I've been to Italy twice in the past 2 months, and I swear every Italian man must have at least 3 purple sweaters!



Blogger Davidikus said ... (7:34 PM) : 

Although I often find Milan to be an unlively & bo-ring city, I must admit that Milaneses have a real eye for style. They do not follow fashion, yet look remarkable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 PM) : 

Can't take my eyes off those pants! I guess that's the point...


Anonymous Vidar Hagen said ... (9:13 PM) : 

So great to se that if you grow grey hair and add a few extra years on the age. You don`t loose good taste. LOVE the jacket. Where can i get one ...?


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

Anyone know what make the coat is?


Blogger Tokyo Girl said ... (11:06 PM) : 

How fun it must be, to be able to color coordinate like this!


OpenID nich0las said ... (11:23 PM) : 

Great colour combination. Great inspiration for the upcoming Australian winter.


Anonymous FvaD. said ... (1:50 AM) : 

haha..Robert de Niro in disguise ?!
anybody noticed the resemblance ?


Blogger Sophisticated Misfit said ... (4:56 AM) : 

You tell me where you're going to find a cooler gentleman other than Italy. Unlike many subjects we see, he looks effortless as though he has nothing to prove to anyone about what he wears. That smile further broadcasts his confidence.

There's a lesson for young and old in flesh and blood. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

I also see the De Niro resemblance. Nicely noted. And De Niro is the Ayatollah of cool.



Blogger Kathleen said ... (8:49 AM) : 

He is style and sophistication to the max. Love the green suede jacket paired with the purple sweater and glenn plaid trousers. Very nice. He is looking great!


Blogger RJ said ... (12:27 PM) : 

PASTICHE! I was just wearing this ensemble the other day!


Blogger Yeji said ... (12:50 PM) : 

love this!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) : 

the great thing is is that this probably the way it is everyday for him.....very cool


Anonymous Sidney said ... (7:43 PM) : 

Stylin'!! Love this guy's look and swagger and I can olny hope to look this dapper when I reach his age.


Blogger Mr Brown said ... (7:52 PM) : 

Pure Euro issue on so many fronts.

Shot sir.

(You and him).


Blogger The Shoe Snob said ... (4:48 AM) : 

whats great about italy is that the men pull off the color purple so well and with a very masculine look to it. Elegance and style at their finest!


Blogger Hyoil said ... (8:49 AM) : 

He's Classico mogul! Alfredo Canessa!
nice nice nice greeeeeeeeeeeen.


Blogger Pure Aesthetic said ... (4:29 PM) : 

not sure about lavender and green. hmmmmm. kind of works but doesnt.


Blogger Nicole + World said ... (7:58 PM) : 

Because of the low number of comments, I feel like this isn't getting quite the attention it deserves! I love that this man is older and elegant and distinguished, but also very modern. He has something very fashion-concious about him--the jacket and the colour, and the slimmer fit iof the pants. I feel like this is a man who is dressing by style and not just tradition.


Blogger Daniel said ... (2:26 AM) : 

Style--this man certainly has it. Why? Because he certainly thought about what he was putting on in the morning, but he could give a damn what you think about it. Definitely not trendy, nor is it "classic", what he is wearing is a direct channeling of his own inner self. Good show, mate. I just wish I could see his shoes. . .

PS all of your photographs are beautiful.
