On The Street.........Gianpaolo of Al Bazar, Milan

One of my favorite guys in Milano.

This is an excellent example of how to wear brown and grey.

Both Gianpaolo and Lino always make a jacket seem young.

Divine sense of color.

I'm in love.

Pretty bold, dude. Nice execution on what could be an easy-to-imagine disaster.



Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (9:32 AM) : 

He looks smashing no doubt.


Blogger ricpic said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Dark brown jacket and black slacks? No.

That guy (working for one of the smallest and finest shop in Milan, in a small street in center, but difficult to find) is one of the best store clerck's in Milan, and of course he's very elegant.

What i would like to notice is that when you go shop there, he or one of his collegues follows you and help you find ing what you need , without attitude and without leaving you alone for a single second..Not like the inefficient wannabe models at usa Ralph Lauren(the only good ones are in Tokio and again in Milan) or Bergdorf Goodman.

So everyone who's in love with sartorialis expression should experience in Milan: Al Bazaar, Bardelli or Doriani, to name just a few.

I don´t think that it is a good idea to mix brown and black together. Don´t find anything surprising in this picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

On their own, the pants and the jacket rock. However, I've always been paralyzed by mixing brown and black so overtly. What is a good rule of thumb for brown and black?


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (2:41 PM) : 

I love the cut and fit of the jacket, especially around the waist and hip. It makes him seem so lean and tall.

I agree. I often feel this way about Tokyo. How strange, eh?

Marvelous shot.

I don't think I like it anywhere but from afar.

I was just wondering, do you take photos of people at night at all? It's definitely a lot easier to take photos during the day since you've got more light but then again, there are ways to get around it. It'd be interesting to see how people dress themselves once the sun goes down. :)

If it wasn't was his background provided by you - I would think car sales man.. NTTAWWT..

I'm sure the colour scheme (brown self stripe jacket, black panys, brown suede shoes) worls well under the Milanese industrial colour - but like previously mentioned by another poster this would get lost in translation under harsher lights..


Blogger Butch said ... (9:22 PM) : 

The color combo is swell. Never a fan of windsor knots, but that's my thang.

But the stiff open cuffs--nyet.


Blogger DK said ... (9:49 PM) : 

I don't dig the color combo so much. But I do like the way he left his cuffs unbuttoned. I do this sometimes myself to emphasize them.


Blogger Kate said ... (1:20 AM) : 

Omigod! Those Italian men! K Q:-)


Blogger DeepBlueSea said ... (4:10 AM) : 

The pale blue shirt really freshens the total look.

But I would say the grey-brown is a tricky combo to pull off, not for the faint-hearted. Here, successfully tho.

And people, check your display settings... those pants are dark grey, not black.

And what a fit. Sheesh! Dapper dude...


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:18 AM) : 

Overall he looks great but I particularly love the tie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:22 AM) : 

I like it. I'd certainly look twice (and a third time...and a fourth)if he passed me on the street.

I think it's true that this look might not fly in the U.S.A., simply because most American men are not risk takers in the clothing area. The black and brown combo is not "safe" enough.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

un italiano vero!


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

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that he's wearing a pinstripe jacket with plain trousers. I have never cared for that style, personally, and I think the mix of colors and fabrics here makes it seem very amateurish. He looks immensely rakish, but I just personally don't care for the ensemble.


Blogger marie said ... (1:03 PM) : 

L like the fit of his suit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:12 PM) : 

Love, love, love. I need a man who can dress himself like that...mmm


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 AM) : 

The guys in Milan seem to be really nailing down a particular thing lately, i.e.:

-double breasted jacket with nipped waist and fairly wide lapels.

-narrow pants

-soft brown suede shoes

-color schmes that shouldn't match, but just do

what are they dosing the water with over there anyway?
he's as sharp as a tack, and i doubt he's even trying on this particular day.


Blogger Mo said ... (1:39 PM) : 

Nice look, but too much tie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 PM) : 

I find I like the cut of the jacket, but the trousers seem too casual for the pinstripe DBjacket, the grey causes even a more jarring contrast.I am not a big fan of suede buckled shoes with such a seemingly formal suit jacket. Unbuttoned cuffs? A tad too affected, it tries a little too hard, Milan or not.

Al Bazar It´s a beautiful shop. This summer I visited Spain, (Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia). In Valencia there is the best store of Spain: "HANNOVER". They sell the best makes: Loro Piana, Alden, Tod´s, Hackett, Brioni, La Martina... and they have a caracter maravillous!!!!


Blogger Mr. ERP said ... (1:08 PM) : 

Nice shot
