Mr. Angelo Inglese

I love this mix

Comments on "Mr. Angelo Inglese"


Blogger said ... (9:04 AM) : 

This is wonderful! A great mix of patterns that doesn't look overwhelming at all. Lovely colors, the black tie stands out among the other soft tones in such a charming way. And I am in love with his handkerchief, it is so special!

However, again, those pants are too tight they make everything so noticeable, even the pocket's lining. No, no, no.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:13 AM) : 

love the detail, combo, texture, pattern.

However,,,,do we not think the jacket and pants seem they would fit if he were ten lbs. less?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:17 AM) : 

What a name haha

Handsome fellow nevertheless, and very manly.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:21 AM) : 

More of the same... Italian shirts and collars and too tight pants. At least the last one was sexy...

Gabriela get your mind out of the gutter. Men have external genitalia. It's just how it is. I'm not trying to be sarcastic but a penis and two testicles cannot be retrieved into a man's interior at will, just so trousers will fit better. You better not be photographed with a camel toe and show up in the blog, that's all i have to say.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:30 AM) : 

The pants are not too tight. That pocket square is a work of art.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Lose 10 lbs? Comments on crotches? Who are these people and why are they writing this nonsense about people who dress well?
If you have a problem, you should go to Target and look at american dudes wearing baggy everything. Losers.

Whats wrong with italian shirts? You prefer american shirts? Go to the gap and stock up on bullshit shirts then

did he put the cardigan in his pants? that's something i never saw before. i like how confident he smiles...he really likes his outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 AM) : 

Jacket too tight and too short,trousers at least a size too small, quite amazing pocket square that needs to be displayed against a plainer background, badly knotted tie and a restricting collar.The cardigan appears to be tucked under the gantleman's paunch.Not a success.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:07 AM) : 

I like the shirt, tie and cardigan. But not so much of the jacket and pants.


Blogger Butch said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Love the jacket and all upper details, but...

...having a bit of a problem with the sweater "roll under" and the pants, which are, I think, not fitting, in both senses.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:48 AM) : 

This is one of those looks that really inspires (to me at least). At first I thought his pocket square was an old-time computer print-out receipt, with those holes in the sides for the advancing wheels. It's a shame it's not. Is that a knit tie? I can't tell on my screen.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 AM) : 

Sounds like everyone put on their cranky-pants this morning! Ligthten up all, it's just a man wearing clothes he likes. He's not knocking on your door with an outfit for you!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 AM) : 

I'm puzzled by some of these comments. His pants do not look tight to me at all. They seem to fit. And doesn't his jacket look pulled because he has his arms crossed across his chest??

The way the colour and the little border of plaid on that pocket square work against his jacket and shirt is serendipitous. And then the polka dots add a nice little extra layer of interest.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 AM) : 

I love the colour combination and the pocket square.

I don't think the trousers in this case are too tight..the so- called "bulge" is probably due to the shadow casted by the cardigan.
(And also some people's overly active imagination)

That being said, I do wonder whether the cardigan is tucked in somewhere or not...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:02 AM) : 

He's cute!


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

Interesting combinations but the overall impression does not flatter the chap. Lose the cardigan is my advice


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:13 AM) : 

I think it's the pants that is, the cut of them, doesn't seem to go with the wonderful top layered look, so the proportions don't jell


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 AM) : 

I like the pocket square, but do the dots around its edge remind anyone else of that perforated paper for those old line printers?


Blogger AdamfromVA said ... (11:26 AM) : 

way too tight, pocket square is dope


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Great photo, Sart. This young gentleman is sporting a beautiful combination of colours, cloth, and patterns. Wonderful! His confident and knowing demeanour makes him look like someone who could teach American men a thing or two about dressing in a proper manner. Bravo!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (11:41 AM) : 

Such attention to detail! I love how muted all these colours are - very subtle.

Sart, I thought you weren't going to post comments about someone's weight. They are rude.


Blogger Cheltenhamdailyphoto said ... (12:20 PM) : 

Oooh no not the first one! lol i clearly have a problem with very tight clothing on men. Not for me at all, those trousers. Or him.


Blogger tintin said ... (12:22 PM) : 

This guy has great style. Yeah, some of it is a little tight but look at the roll on that collar. Beautiful. I'm not a big fan of pocket squares but his is so's not foppy at all. He likes his pasta and red wine and it shows. I bet he's very happy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:38 PM) : 

the tie's blue... by the way.
And his pants arent that tight either... maybe a bit to low though?


Blogger youveneverheardofus said ... (1:03 PM) : 

Yes great mix of patterns. I like that he is a little heavier, shows that you dont have to be a gaunt, 6 foot tall nordic man to pull off high style. however, not a fan of how he folded his pocket square, it looks like he stuck a newspaper scrap in there.


Blogger jakubowski said ... (1:07 PM) : 

I dont think the tight pants comments would be made if the pants in question were regular blue-jeans rather than khaki/white colored jeans. The same goes for the suit with tight pants from last week, if they were regular blue jeans instead of suit trousers with a "jeans cut" snugness the tight aspect would be completely ignored.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:27 PM) : 

I LOVE the hand stitching on the pocket square. 3 layers of material!
I just *love* the pocket square. Can he send me one? He looks faaaaaab--great expression!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:35 PM) : 

He es cute! Very grounded looking gentleman. The "external genitalia fact" is ok with me, I think he is wearing his size, nevertheless my frendly advice is that he would highly benefit from loosing weight... or very soon he would have to buy new clothes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:41 PM) : 

The colors and patterns are wonderful. I love the white pants as well, but the way the vest fits. I think it would wear better if it had a strait waiste, instead of folding under like it does.
I love the shirt and tie combination.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:44 PM) : 

I agree with Anon 11:23 and Mike n - that pocket square looks like an old computer printout, and actually thought that's what it was until I took a closer look. I would rearrange it or get a new one or ditch it altogether.

Cranky Pants


Blogger J.P. said ... (1:50 PM) : 

The tie, square, shirt, jacket all look great.

Not sure why there is so much debate on here- it's clear his pants are too tight and do not fit him properly or perhaps he is going "commando" or something? He looks good from the waist up.


Blogger Parisian_Dandy said ... (2:00 PM) : 

Wonderful....loving it

A great blog, easy on THE EYE.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:42 PM) : 

I'm sure all these people who are calling the guy "fat" (he is clearly not fat) and calling his clothes "tight" (they are not tight) are morbidly obese people from the midwest and/or middle-aged single women who are bitter because their ovaries dried up before they had the chance to become "mommies"


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

One of the things I love about this site is that it is constantly reminding us that fashion is for everyone. I feel sometimes that some on the fringes of the fashion world would love to live in isolation in a nice exclusive club.

The Sartorialist stoops to putting a man a few kg overweight on his site?? I am sorry but listen to a great man like Giorgio Armani speak and you find not a fashion snob. You will hear him talk about fashion as a form a self expression, in which you express yourself for others and his clear belief that fashion is for everyone!

By the way, I was quite surprised to see some of the comments on the gent in the photo. He certainly is not a supermodel but I thought he was quite appealing in any event, especially in the way he expresses himself in dress


Blogger suzannemarques said ... (3:14 PM) : 

his look is scrumptious. i love the pocket square & the light pink in the pattern of his shirt with the tie.

Blogger Benedict said ... (3:53 PM) : 

Beautiful pattern combination; that pocket square in particular looks like the tablecloths my grandmother used to make, but I am also enamoured by the shirt. Can't say I am a cardigan man myself, but he definitely pulls it off well.


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

As has been said before, I love the pocket square. I really like the fact that it initially reads as paper. As for the pants it seems too me that much of the “too tight” look comes from: (a) how the light is falling on the area (b) the fact that the photograph does not show the shoes so the high value on the crotch becomes the focal point of the bottom half of the ensemble.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:10 PM) : 

too many colors...
i will ditch the cardigan which makes the jacket look very tight.
anyway, its a very good shot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:18 PM) : 

Is that all most people have to say?
"Did he put the cardigan in his pants?"
And stop commenting on bulges people. They are a fact of life. Get over it and stop trying to emasculate men. I agree with the external genitalia comment.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:26 PM) : 

Is his tie silk or cotton? That knot looks very substantial to me how would one go about tying it? It appears to be a four in hand but my four in hand knots tend to be alot smaller than this. I like the look with the higher collar.


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (4:54 PM) : 

I love the details here. I'm a sucker for folded arms. Seriously!


Blogger Delilah Garside said ... (5:16 PM) : 

From afar, it almost looks as if he's tucked a few playing cards into his pocket. Now THAT would be innovation.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:48 PM) : 

Well, his pants are a little tight for my taste, but overall he looks very "spiffy".



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:56 PM) : 

TBH, I don't see what's noteworthy about this. Above the waist, he's just painfully traditional and unimaginative. It looks nice, but where's the personal touch? Below the waist, well, I don't think the pants are too small, but the color doesn't work with the rest of the outfit.

Honestly, Sart. You could post a pic of a guy dressed in a bucket here and people would fawn over it and ask where they could buy the bucket.


Blogger Cassaundra said ... (6:03 PM) : 

open your eyes (2:42 p.m.) seems to have quite the imagination.

i think this gentleman looks wonderful! how splendid the colors, textures. regardless his height, weight, location - he looks fantastic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:06 PM) : 

I can't believe how nasty people were today. People swearing, making fun of people's names,dried-up ovaries whatever and bringing up the weight issue.

Please be nicer tomorrow.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:39 PM) : 

i really love the color palette and textures


Blogger burke said ... (7:18 PM) : 

Well, I think there is a lot of good and some bad in this picture.

I have written several times to complain about the ridiculous spread collars that are always shown. This one really gets it right. You can see how much more elegant and alive a soft, moderate collar is than the wide cutaways. Very nice.

The jacket, vest and tie are great. He wears them very well. The pocket square is fantastic, but he should tuck it behind the lapel. You don't need to advertise what you have.

The only bad part is the pants. I know this pair, and I really don't think they work well on anybody, but especially not on him. White is a very slimming color, but with his belly (which I have no problem with) overhanging the pants, the slimming effect down below only serves to accentuate the large midsection this man has earned.

re george mcintyre: in italian, that name loosely translates as english angel. i like the touch of pink in the shirt, almost like a hint a springtime in the look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 PM) : 

Brilliant photo. Classic patterns and comfortable fit. Clothes to wear everyday, while going about life.

What I absolutely like about The Sartorialist is being able to see how people in varied places around the world adapt fashion to their location and culture. Milan will not look like New York, Paris will not look like Tokyo. Any yet, in any of these places there are people who thoughtfully blend self, culture and couture.

There is nothing wrong with criticism. However, if folks can't do this intelligently, they should probably have sense enough to stay away from this thoughtful and well-intentioned blog. Rude and unintelligent comments often reflect more upon the writer of those comments than upon the object of the criticism.



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

Thank you Cassaundra


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 PM) : 

I think the look is much too spring for January. Also the top all looks too heavy. I think he should loose the tie. But I like the tight pants. It's sexy and chivalrous.


Blogger Dovid said ... (11:50 PM) : 

Ladies and gents lets agree to disagree, OK? Nothing wrong with approving just as there's nothing wrong with disapproving.

That said, I believe the pants are too tight. And there's no reason to equate tight pants with good fashion, citing the alternative as baggy walmart jeans, as one commenter posted. Most of the subjects photographed here wear the right sizes. Just a few odd ones out.

His pocket square is very interesting. i'd like to see it unfolded. I wonder if there's yet another layer of fabric.

I'm a sucker for woven ties, too, and I just love the way he wears it. I tried wearing my tie like that today and it looked great. Thanks for the inspiration!


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

i saw the 2nd pic after a dreary and long design conference (interiors). i really gained inspiration from it. loved the text combi and the controv pocket square. its beautiful when enlarged. i only saw the top pic later (full shot). could have lived without it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 AM) : 

Good grief, a bunch of you have your knickers in a twist!

I don't think anyone actually called him "fat"; and he isn't -- not even close, unless anorexia is your standard.

What many people did say is that the pants seem too tight, which is an entirely different matter. Regardless of what size or shape a person is, clothing is most flattering when it fits in a way that is suitable to the person, the style and the occasion.

However, these are jeans, folks, jeans, (see the pocket?) They always fit like that -- or tighter! And tight jeans display anatomy, male and female. It's one of the reasons everyone loves and wears jeans. Get over it.

As to concern about the "negative" remarks posted, this site invites "critique" -- ideally, the thoughtful analysis of why an outfit does or does not work. And I think it is quite impossible to do that without any implied criticism of the person wearing the clothes because, after all, they made the choices.

People who let themselves be photographed for a blog that travels the world should know they will endure commentary -- it comes with the territory. And if all anybody ever said here was, "Oh, he's cute" or "neat outfit", the commentary would be utterly banal and without interest at all.

Which is not to say anybody needs to be nasty; quite the contrary -- it is probably safe to say that the cattier comments come from those who don't have their brains engaged when they write a post.

My take?:

This gent looks very comfortable with himself and I hope he has laughed all this off. I also hope he has taken some of the comments to heart.

Personally, I think he looks terrific right down to his jacket pockets -- everything about it works together and suits him. I also agree with those who said from the pockets down it does not work. The beige color of the pants is wrong, the style of pants is not ideal, and the tucked in cardigan spoils whatever effect he was after -- it just outlines his tum in an unflattering way (perfectly nice tum, unflattering way to wear the sweater). Now, if he had the cardigan slimmed down over his waist and was wearing dark jeans, everything would be just lovely and no one would notice how much he has enjoyed his pasta lately!

I think he looks like a sweetie and he demonstrates very good sartorial skills from the top of his head to his, well, to his elbows :-)


Blogger said ... (3:24 AM) : 

My God! I couldn't agree more with anonymous 6:06pm!

It's OK that people don't totally like the outfits and that they express so. However, there are ways and ways of commenting 'negative things'.

I do my best to speak my mind clearly and honestly, trying to be as polite as I can, even if sometimes I might just say it wrong...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:51 AM) : 

I like the color play between the pink and blue.

But, I must be honest. The first thing I noticed in this photo was CROTCH!

HOWEVER, unlike some, I don't count that as a bad thing!

Nice smile too.

Blogger Katrin said ... (8:12 AM) : 

The outfit is greatly put together, but it has to fit too. You just can't think that if you wear nice peaces they don't need to fit you! So...ugly cameltoe should never be seen. Never. And you sartorialist can't say that "if this is the only thing you see, then..." Come on!!!!This is suppoused to be about harmony, and the ugly cameltoe is not harmonizing very well! :D:D:D


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:35 AM) : 

again if all you see is "cameltoe" then you are really showing how very little you know about menswear
- it is like seeing the Mona Lisa and complaining that it is cold outside

secondly, am I only suppose to shoot perfect people?
wouldn't i be right back shooting only models in perfectly tailored samples like the big magazines?

I love that I get to say this to a woman but - get your eyes off his crotch and try a little focus above the belt for this one


Blogger Andy said ... (9:39 AM) : 

I love how most all of the men in suits and ties that you put up don't have loud ties. A shirt, pocket square or flower makes up for the lack of color. I find it very interesting, definitely the opposite of a standard American look. (You don't have to post this Mr. Sartorialist, I just wanted to let you know that you do good work.) I have soooo much fun reading this blog every day. You have broadened my sartorial horizons and you make beautiful art.


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

wow, cameltoe?
these pants are not tight at all...
where are you guys from? how loose do you want the man's pants? these are a jeans cut. active imaginations! and so provencial!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:39 PM) : 

It took me an hour to read all the posts. My conclusion is that someone became upset after someone else's comment about a crotch, and the rest is history.
If i were the man in the photo i would be very glad about all the uproar i caused. By the way, he looks good. And one word about crotches and i hope it will not be the cause of further fighting and verbal diarrhoea: women have breasts to work with, and men have crotches. So, dear ladies do not hold it against us when we try to show off what nature gave us. At least ours are natural. Ciao.


Blogger Orchid & Wasp said ... (4:31 PM) : 

I think he's really beautiful, his self-possessed expression is incredibly sexy, and I have no problem whatsoever with the fit of these clothes.

I love the pocket square and the jacket, but ultimately I don't feel that the ensemble really comes together... something about the color of the topstitching on the jeans, even the twill. I'm not sure how to reconcile this warm, creamy white and its earthy stitching with what's going on between the blue and white check jacket and the grey cardigan.

Still, I'm in love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:46 PM) : 

I think he looks wonderful. All the little touches are perfect and (to use the word of the day in the comment section) harmonious. His pants are far from tight, its obvious none of you have been in Williamsburg and seen the hipster population there! These pants are far baggier than many I have seen. I think they fit him perfectly. Shame on the comments about his weight. He looks amazing and his little smiles shows that he thinks so too! Great picture!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:05 PM) : 

yeah, i love this-- the detail reminds me of something a character in a wes anderson movie might wear... a mix of quirky, preppy, and refined.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 PM) : 

Some late thoughts:
- I don't think his pants are too tight. Look at how they fit in the leg, quite comfy. The rise may be a bit too short, but they are not "too small"
- He is NOT FAT. He's not even overweight. It is only the cardigan vest that is making him look like he has a gut, it may be too big, which is why he has it rolled under.
- As far as not being a model, I think this guy is one of the most attractive men on this site. He looks real, confident, and fun, which for me defines sexy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:22 PM) : 

I posted re this photo on (I was in the camp who find the jeans a little snug) but on a second look, I don't know if it's that so much as the torque on the cardigan that throws the shot ...

Scroll the photo and look at it as two halves: from the sleeve buttons up, all looks well. From there down, a simple "straighten and smooth your sweater" would have been welcome. But maybe you have a rule against that, Scott?!

Love that shirt, tie and jacket combo, and the square is smart. Bravo, signor Inglese.


Blogger Katrin said ... (2:39 AM) : 

To Sartorialist: I love your pictures and these people seem perfect just because they're so not...or know what i mean. And that's why they're so incredible! And this man's outfit is lovely too. I would die for my husband to wear such mix. But the cruch...I just can't help it, it's not flattering. But i gladly leave this man the right to judge if it's ok or not. He's the one wearing the outfit. So you are right. In the end it's just a matter of prefrence. I prefer not to see my husband in pants so tight in that area but i'm not going to have an heart attac if that lovely gentelmen perfers to. If i would see him on the streets, the cruch would not be the first thing i would notice. The outfit is way better than that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:03 AM) : 

This would be way too precious and dandyish were it not for the fact that he sort of "cuts" it with the casual trendiness of cardigan and jeans, giving it a more jaunty and updated feel.

Agree that the fit could be better on the pants, but I know that's not why you posted this one.
