On the Street...Refined Casual, Milan

Hard but rewarding to find shorts that are even remotely refined. Notice this waistband closure - it makes a big difference.

Check out the UFO in the sky!

And that is our friend, architectural designer Charles Ruthefoord from London

Must find out where he got those shorts!

The shorts fit him very nicely, but there is something about the fit of the shirt that I do not like. I can't quite put my finger on it, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:17 PM) : 

interesting, yet not surprising to see this kind of leather shoes to be worn without socks- other than that I feel strange proportions- the short's not quite short.

great tan though, gotta catch up!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:30 PM) : 

love it all apart from the shoes..they should be tod's or similar. otherwise its perfect!


Blogger Elizabeth H. said ... (6:52 PM) : 

Most American males (and females while we are at it)need to see this picture. Shorts done right.


Blogger Topham Beauclerk said ... (7:29 PM) : 

I find the UFO flying across the top of the frame to be even more interesting than the waistband closure.

(I know, I know, it's probably a street light, but I prefer to believe it's a UFO.)


Blogger thwany said ... (8:16 PM) : 

the difference between the clothing that people in your pictures were wearing a month ago and are wearing now is so drastically different


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (8:22 PM) : 

Totally chic down the the Ferragamo loafers.


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (8:27 PM) : 

Sart, what do you mean about the band closure of this shorts? What is different about it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:34 PM) : 

they look like dress pants that were cut off and hemmed


Blogger Edward Pack said ... (8:58 PM) : 

Brilliant Sartorialist! I’m from NZ & it’s so hard to find a well-cut, crisp white shirt in this small part of the world. If I could find one I’d wear it with everything (like this guy) and probably buy one for every day of the week! Have you got any ideas Scott? ie. ordering online etc. -Ep

Refined shorts certainly are quite hard to find! Paul Smith is where I usually look, he had some fantastic tailored shorts in his S/S 2006 range, though I had to travel to the other side of the world to finally track them down.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:09 PM) : 

This guy looks great! Casual, comfortable, yet totally together.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:34 PM) : 

Look like a some cinched closure, can't quite make it out because of the dark fabric.

I do see the UFO in the upper right though.


Blogger Gudl said ... (9:59 PM) : 

He looks great! Totally like the look!! The white shirt with the dark blue shorts goes very well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:14 PM) : 

you used to post such good menswear! what happened?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:36 PM) : 

It's great when men wear shorts, or any item that are age appropriate. Classic, modern and comfortable.

And why do men wear capri's? That's what I'm NOT tawkin 'bout !!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 AM) : 

i dunno....he looks too boy-scoutish....nice shoes, though


Blogger Misterparticular said ... (12:34 AM) : 

Okay, but I thought this was supposed to be the season of the short for men. Yes, the closure is cute but does it veer into gimmickry? therr mus be better shorts out there. I think his shorts are too high on the waist and a bit long, the sockless loafer isn't that great either, and the messenger bag is so, well, messenger no?


Blogger DeepBlueSea said ... (3:53 AM) : 

How long should the legs of shorts be, on a tall man like this?
Here in Australia guys have been wearing longer shorts, to upper or mid shin...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:37 AM) : 

oh, come on, why don't you wear a big "tourist" badge while you're at it? I mean, great Ferragamos, crisp shirt, but you really don't do bermudas in the city in Milan if you're over 21. ok, nice looking tourist, no hard feelings, but catch that train to Portofino, you have just the right style.



Blogger Butch said ... (7:40 AM) : 

Like the shorts well enough, but the shoes strike me as too clunky (and with a metal bit, yet.) Also, the shirt's oddly fitting--perhaps over-large.


Blogger Stratos Bacalis said ... (9:54 AM) : 

Percect look for summer. Mr. Rutherfoord hits the point. I go a pair of olive green shorts like these from a greek clothing chain last year and intend to buy one more thi syear in another color.


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (11:13 AM) : 

I don't care for the shoes. To me they look a bit heavy.

PS--Love reading/viewing your blog...The photos are always stunning (and the earlier tailor profiles were charming)!


Blogger Just an Observation said ... (11:59 AM) : 


thx sar!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:59 AM) : 

Not bad, the look is clean and elegant and would be great if this were Capri or Positano in July; however, in Milano, and in April, the shorts are a nicht-nicht, as Bruno the Austiran fashionista would say. In fact in any major Italian city, the sure way to announce you are a tourist is to wear shorts (even in August). At least he's wearing loafers.


Blogger Flaneur said ... (4:13 PM) : 

Yes, Alessandro and Anonymous from Milan are right. He looks like a tourist.
