I Love This Old Guy!

Somehow he is connected to Etro but I couldn't quite understand how when he was explaining it to me. Something about a tailor, maybe he was one of their tailors?

good pose, old guy.

The--what?--yellow pad in the coat pocket provides parenthetical color.

All-and-all very natty, even if the coat seems a mite over-scaled, and the pants too long. The shoes, though, are great....

I love your site, I love your vision. I just wish you didn't refer to people in the way that you sometimes do. "Old Man" seems rude. How about something a bit more sophisticated, and in keeping with this site, "a distinguished gentleman?" Just a thought. :>)

This man has more sassiness to him than many who are two generations younger! Bravo Sir!

Sharp as a pin! Love it. Thanks for sharing this guy, you both made my morning a little brighter.

FANTASTIC. I, too, love this guy.... the wonderfully-fitted overcoat, the whole color scheme, and I am especially in love with the hat and the scarf. This man is awesome.

Aww, he's so cute, italian old men are adorable! :D

This man looks to be of a small stature, but the length of the coat and hem of the trouser help him out.

Another well turned out older gent - can they not teach a class for the hordes of younger men who don't realize the power of a great look?
Also, I'm sure you saw the NYTimes yesterday with Carine wearing the Alaia coat you featured way back on Jan. 27th in the Style section. Are she and Franca Sozzani sharing it at the Vogue offices? If they both have it, do they call each other up to see that they don't wear it the same day? ha!

He is very cute!

I like this shot because he doesnt look typically Milanese rich. He's proof positive that even your average mature gentleman in Milan knows how to maintain "la bella figura". In truth you could see this look all over Italy, in any small-town square at ''passeggiata" time. It just goes to show that the reason italian men are considered stylish has nothing whatever to do with modern fashion designers. Its in the blood.

I actually love all of this: the play of the patterns (checkered hat, plaid scarf, and striped pants), the reds of the hat and scarf working off each other, and the brown-and-grey motif of the rest of the outfit. Really fantastic, and well thought out.

To anonymous at 10:45 a.m., I disagree that saying that someone is "old" is rude--at least once that person hits a certain age (which I'm just gonna say this guy has). Although our culture appears to have no use for anyone over, say, 50 (for men--30 for women), "old" is just another descriptive term, and a (slightly) more objective one than your suggestion of "distinguished" (which, to my mind, carries with it not only the suggestion of age but also the faint whiff of condescension and denial).

Anyway, what I'm really trying to say is that he looks like a guy who would not care in the least what anyone called him. "Oh, bah--what do you know?" he'd say. "Yeah, I'm old. So what?" He's cool.

This guy has a swagger you can't buy. He winter gear game is awesome.

The scarf looks like the "cameron of erracht modern" tartan, regimental tartan of the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders - an excellent choice sir!
