On the Street.....Brera, Milano

I saved this shot for GQ but it didn't fit the page.
I love how this gentleman is really working the working buttonholes on his jacket.

ps this is also for all the requests for men on bikes!!

oh what a great shot. it looks like he's been working that jacket for a long, long time. great shoes, and a pocket square. its amazing. beautiful shot.


Blogger fifivondee said ... (8:43 AM) : 

It's also lovely to see a handsome older fella after all the youth of stockholm ... although, I suppose, he is youthful in his own way.


Blogger Dave said ... (9:00 AM) : 

is he Elio Fiorucci?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:07 AM) : 

He reminds me of Hemingway. What a very handsome man; I bet he smells delicious. Loving your work recently Sart, keep it up.


Blogger Paulo A. Pereira said ... (9:13 AM) : 

Casual but refined! Classic.


Blogger ek said ... (9:46 AM) : 

Nice. You're helping to build a new legion of tasteful yet practical bicycle commuters.

Oh, and thanks for bringing the labels back.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (11:07 AM) : 

Great photo!


Blogger NorthShore Chicago said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Finally am man shows me a reason to roll up his jacket sleeves. I have a few jackets with working button holes and love to undo one or two for a little flair, but I have always wanted to roll them all the way up. I'm going for a bike ride this afternoon.

Your photos always cheer me up.

i live in Brera, in Milan and it's amazing to observe how many old men can teach what is simple elegance with their clothes...i love living in this area, it's full of art students and old stylish reminds me of paris sometimes.


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

I really like the puffed up pocket square and exposed cuffs with this look.


Blogger siongc said ... (12:11 PM) : 

WOW! How does one age with such dignity and elegance? The colours complement his skin and the brown shoes offset the outfit wonderfully! So much charisma! Fabulous find and a wonderful shot Scott!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:07 PM) : 

How is he balancing?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:40 PM) : 

When do you go to Japan, Sarto? I would love to see your interpretation of Tokyo..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:23 PM) : 

He looks friggin' great. I love it all - he's all pulled together, but a little rumpled. The hair is fab too.


Blogger Laurence John said ... (4:59 PM) : 

i like the sock, trouser cuff, shoe combo.


Blogger Gudl said ... (6:12 PM) : 

Definitely interesting! I like his outfit, all goes well together, incl. the bike!


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (6:33 PM) : 

We're men, MANLY men, we're men on bikes! ;)
He looks magnificent!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:59 PM) : 

if you'd like to see men on bikes visit the bay area, namely ucberkeley. not only will you see your everyday college student on a bike, but a professor as well!


Blogger JO said ... (7:34 PM) : 

GREAT SHOT! Love it! He looks just like a teacher I used to have.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:19 PM) : 

he is so handsome, i LOVE him! everything is perfect


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:06 PM) : 

This HAS to be one of your great shots. He is the epitome of elegance (can I use that word for guys?)! He reminds me of Anthony Hopkins.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:05 AM) : 

In the middle of writing a 20 page final paper...

I love this.

Anyhow, thank you for all that you do.

I love his bike. Does anyone know what brand?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:36 AM) : 

working bicycle-bags, lookink very natural, real, nice shot
all best


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:08 AM) : 

I have to be honest Sart, while this is a nice shot, it is getting old. The whole men on bikes thing was quite fun in the begining, but now its getting quite repetitive.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:32 AM) : 

For Anon 9:08am
I didn't shoot him because he was on a bike but because he is so stylish - he just happened to be on a bike

Just for you, I will try to shoot more stylish guys on mules!!


Blogger Amit said ... (9:36 AM) : 

Excellent ! Is that Donald Sutherland ?


Blogger victime de la mode said ... (9:38 AM) : 

Ah the italians... the only people who love linen for what it is, I mean for living with you and your body, and do not say "it's a pity it crumples" !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 AM) : 

there is nothing about this photo that doesn't make me feel good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 AM) : 

I could only dream to look that suave when I get older! Tip of the hat to that chap.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Very nicely put together.

oy vey. Can you not take an OUNCE of critique? I am shocked you even posted my comment, since it did not explicitly thank g-d for bringing you to this world. To me, the constant bike shots take away from the actual style, all you see is wheels and a basket.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (12:08 PM) : 

I was joking with you!


Blogger bellj said ... (12:51 PM) : 

More bikes!!! More bikes!!! I love those shots Sart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:12 PM) : 

This is a fabulous photo. Such a handsome man! His style conjures up thoughts of an approachable Sean Connery.



Blogger Dwight S. Huggins =^..^= said ... (2:15 PM) : 

love the look, shades of donald sutherland only add to the effect. charming...



Blogger sunshine said ... (3:33 AM) : 

Wow -- what a fantastic shot on those haphazard Brera cobblestones!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:58 AM) : 

Candid Cool, love you for that comment!!


Blogger Emily said ... (7:38 AM) : 

he looks just like my granpa... ok i lie but i wish my granpa looked like him x


Blogger Ali B. said ... (9:04 AM) : 

Forget the people... more bikes! Bikes as models! YES YES! ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:43 PM) : 

Mr. Fercioni


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

Very nice photo! Very elegant. Is this gentleman's left forearm tattooed, or just tan?


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:49 AM) : 

Is it possible to buy prints of this (or other select) image(s)? Please let me know.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 PM) : 

Yes-- I'd swear it's Donald Sutherland!

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

Isn't Hemingway dead? Did he had a twin?


Blogger Marty McFly said ... (2:33 PM) : 

this is an amazing look.

i love the bike, the saddle bags and the lack of break wiring.

the pedal break is a understatement when trying to achieve clean lines.

simply amazing.


Blogger baroccogiapponese said ... (12:05 AM) : 

Hey, I know him! He is Mr. Fercioni, the most famous tattooer in Italy! He is also a scenographer, with a peculiar baroque taste.
I proudly have a tatto made by him. His studio is very close to the place where the picture was taken.


Blogger holly may said ... (5:28 PM) : 

Such a dream!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 AM) : 

He is GianMaurizio Fercioni, the most famous and older tattooist in Italy. He have a great and very personal style!


Blogger Sari said ... (4:05 PM) : 

This is my favorite photo for so many reasons.
Including the wrought iron in background, the well worn (& worn well) linen jacket, and the shoes on his feet, his shoes are perfect & polished!


Anonymous Victor said ... (6:15 PM) : 

Great! All in it smells as spring.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 AM) : 

He's the best tattoo artist we have in Milan (and perhaps in Italy) and, of course, he's really stylish. P.S. he dresses up like this even while he works. He's one of a kind.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:58 PM) : 

Again, the shoes here set the outfit apart!


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

Mr Fercioni: THE ultimate Italian dandy and the best tattoo artist in Italy. Glad he made it onto your pages.
