On the Street....Super Dario, Milano

I covet Dario's Attolini double-face cashmere overcoat. I also love how tied his scarf so just enough blue was visible.

Fantastic!!! Again we have here blue scarf and blue details in the background which compliment the scarf even more. You really have a great eye. I love it!!!

I love living in Japan, because often I'm the first to see this later night posts since it's late afternoon/ evening for me when they happen. Back to the subject at hand, I do appreciate this photo and must note that it's reminiscent of the afore shown and much debated Vogue Editor picture. A touch of color in the right place is just so appealing. Good-eye to the wearer and good-eye to the photographer.

Blogger Kristen said ... (3:49 AM) : 

I love how you managed to capture the shot with all that other blue around! And truly, the coat is beautiful. Nicely done.


Blogger said ... (4:09 AM) : 

The scarf and the way he wears it: gorgeous! It is quite a coincidence that the blue matches with the car in the right and the windows in the background. I’m genuinely curious, is this done on purpose or is it that the angel of photography is always with you? Provably it is a mix of both things together…


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:14 AM) : 

i am always amazed at how well the setting complements the subject in so many of your photos; the blue coverings and car really bring out his scarf.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 AM) : 

Fabulous! Is it an amazing coincidence that the blue car and awnings match the scarf?? or photoshop magic? (I hope thats not a rude question!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 AM) : 

this is a great shot. love how the blue scarf, blue canopies int he background, and blue from the car relate to each other.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:24 AM) : 

Bit underwhelmed by this one. Though the scarf is interesting, somehow it doesn't pop (terrible word that) as much as one wants it to or as much as the blue socks and blue shirts did in a few of the previous shots.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:52 AM) : 

Just perfect. I also love the coat! Very nice fitting. Love the shoes too. Wonder what car he is driving...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:04 AM) : 

My Milanese aunt used to say: a real man doesn't wear a cashmere overcoat.


He does look good, though.


Blogger Pratishtha Durga said ... (6:28 AM) : 

Something about the composition of this photograph reminds me of the film BLUE; one of the three films in Kieslowski's masterful THREE COLORS trilogy, BLUE, WHITE, and RED.

Is the blue car his? Kidding.


Blogger Butch said ... (7:18 AM) : 

Overcoats really invite personalization--that is, individualized takes on collar and button use.

Nice coat here and nicely worn. Also like the burst of blue at the throat...


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:20 AM) : 

what serendipity to have all those points of blue pulling your eye in, back and forth in the picture and back to the scarf in the centre. my art teacher would give you a gold star for composition.


Blogger Anne and Kirk said ... (7:45 AM) : 

One of the best yet - I am astounded that you "caught" him right by the blue car, with the blue window awnings in the background.
I enjoy your photos so much-


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 AM) : 

Perfect Style! Fantastic cashmere coat....I saw him also at DSquared show, he was wearing an impeccable light grey double breasted jacket from Cesare Attolini with a turtle neck cable-knitwear, vintage sunglasses. i love Dario's style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:07 AM) : 

Did you use the 'make-awnings-and-one-car-blue' tool in photoshop, Sart? ;))) No, just joking.
Mr. Dario looks perfect. I love navy and deep blue.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 AM) : 

I like.


Blogger Cheltenhamdailyphoto said ... (8:36 AM) : 

Yes not too tight this time, but i'm still not a fan of the fitted look. For a man. No. Trousers are far too short. Scarf jaunty and i wonder if he has a pocket full of different coloured scarfs to match each car he passes by?


Blogger suzannemarques said ... (8:53 AM) : 

i love the shades of blue in dario's ensemble. the scarf accents his handsome face! :)
like his shoes too.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:58 AM) : 

The scarf was the first thing I noticed. The blue is simply vibrant!


Blogger materfamilias said ... (9:36 AM) : 

brilliant how well the blue in the scarf echoes the blue of the car and the awnings.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:50 AM) : 

Dario did a wonderful job of coordinating his scarf to the color of the building's awnings!
We must all learn from his lesson and begin dressing in colors that match our intended destination for the day!


Blogger momo said ... (10:06 AM) : 

And the blue matches the car and the awnings!
If this comment appears more than once, it's because there's a glitch with Blogger.

I looooove your point of view


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:26 AM) : 

How do you do it? The blue in his scarf playing off the blue of the car and the awnings in the background, it's an amazing shot...and he looks great too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 AM) : 

amazing confluence of blue scarf, car and awnings... your eye only gets better!


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:39 AM) : 

blue, blue, blue... love it!


Blogger Ridonkulus said ... (10:45 AM) : 

wow, this almost look like a staged shoot. blue car happened to be parked where there are blue awnings with a guy in a blue coat. the sapphire blue scarf looks great on him, still looks very masculine.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

Ay!! You are truly favoured by the gods of photography. Yet another shot where the setting serendipitously rhymes with the subject (ie. the blues)!


Blogger oldog/oldtrix said ... (11:05 AM) : 

The overcoat is lovely, and I especially appreciate that it is not truncated in the impractical fashion of so many that have been pushed the last couple of years. But I must question the provenance of this photo. An Italian wearing black shoes? And with a blue suit, yet? Hard to believe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:05 AM) : 

how is it that the people you shoot always have backgrounds with the same color as the clothes they are wearing? Its magnificent! ITs like we imitate our surroundings. Well done.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 AM) : 

Are his coat/pants dark blue too?


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

i wanna tap that


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:36 AM) : 

enough blue to match the car and the sunblinds in the background.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:44 AM) : 

The blues in this shot are amazing. The scarf, the awnings, the car... wow! What great bursts of color for a winter day!

I have to ask - when you find your subjects, how much liberty do you take with where you have them pose? Or do you always shoot them *exactly* where you see them?


Blogger gak said ... (11:52 AM) : 

I'm screaming for joy in blue! The car, the scarf, the awnings!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:56 AM) : 

Oh, wow! C'est cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:58 AM) : 

good shot. did you pose it or were those awnings and that Fiat a beautiful accident?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:33 PM) : 

Well, now, isn't this instructive. In contrast to the coat on the gentleman photographed on Via Montenapoleone the other day, this man's gorgeous coat fits to perfection. Slim, but perfect. Instead of the big bulky scarf, this one is wrapped discretely but still looks like it would keep him warm. The gloves look slim and tailored. Altogether a handsome, beautifully dressed gentleman -- it doesn't get too much better than that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:46 PM) : 

i love the colour!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:52 PM) : 

And I love how you have photographed him---the scarf, the awnings, the car! How do you do it? Your eye for detail is amazing.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:13 PM) : 

This is whithout any doubt the most beautiful shoulder I ever saw in an overcoat!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:13 PM) :

Blogger JRenee said ... (1:21 PM) : 

Isn't it fortunate that there is so much background blue.. what a brilliant compostion!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:45 PM) : 

Nice outfit, but an even better picture. The way the blue in his scarf pulls on the blue in the car and the awnings is great.


Blogger Jennifer Rados said ... (2:00 PM) : 

wonderfully complemented by the awnings and the car as well.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (3:11 PM) : 

This happened just the way you see it.

I was waiting for the Gucci show and was surprised to see Dario.
Actually I shot it one-handed while a I was on my cellphone so i wasn't even sure if it was in focus but I timed it just right.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:53 PM) : 

scarf or no, yum!

Beautiful man dressed beautifully. Gorgeous shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:21 PM) : 

just to reiterate, blue awnings, blue car and blue scarf. genius!


Blogger Casey said ... (7:00 PM) : 

This is a wonderful photograph! Amazing how the blue of his scarf matches the awnings and car. This is my favorite website ever.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:49 PM) : 

It grabs the eye, while remaining subtle and understated all at the same time. Not to interject unpleasant realities like money into this, but the cost of an Attolini double-faced cashmere coat has to be substantial.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:03 PM) : 

i've said it before, and i'll say it again.. we need a scarf-tying tutorial! perhaps a slight removal from the norm, but we love scarves here at the sartorialist blogspot!

it's a worthy cause!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:20 PM) : 

hey look! a blue car, and blue awnings in the background!! oh wait.. why would i want to say that, when everyone else already said it 67 times?

aside from that, thank you for imparting the unbelievably serendipitous circumstances of this photographic moment, as it confirms -for me, at least- that you have indeed consorted with the devil, and that anyone with any intentions to dabble in photography need follow suit.


Blogger andrew said ... (11:04 PM) : 

this is exactly how i want to look when i am this gentleman's age!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 PM) : 

At least this gent's coat is only one size two small, unlike so many you've shown.


Blogger Jacque said ... (11:52 PM) : 

I absolutely love it! Especially the blue scarf while he's next to the blue car! It really pops. Excellent photography aswell.


Blogger The Pilgrim said ... (2:17 AM) : 

The touches of blue are great (hey, you were lucky with this pic!), and I LOVE the length of the pants, I've been cropping all of my own too. Of course by a classic standpoint they are a trifle short, but why can't we men also be fashionable and playful with clothes (and hemlines)?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:34 AM) : 

Super, super, super! Guys it's time to forget kiton and Brioni...Attolini makes you young, sexy, elegant, contemporary!


Blogger guido said ... (8:25 AM) : 

the blue sun blinds in the back hold a lot of good stuff - what was he doing at Tincati's?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 PM) : 

Elegant shape!
Posh attitude!

Thanks, Scott!


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Umm I don't think his coat is the wrong size. I think it fits perfectly.

What is it with guys who buy coats so oversized? Are they going to want to wear a puffa jacket under there or something???


Blogger pearlaceous said ... (9:38 PM) : 

Love how it all worked out! This is a great shot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 AM) : 

Gosh i miss the italians...
Men and women... style all around!
I need to get myself back there asap!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 AM) : 

The picture is slightly out of focus, mofo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:10 PM) : 

I love this one. He's a nice looking guy, and the outfit looks very classy. If I weren't married I'd want to date this guy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 AM) : 

I like his lokks. Who is Dario? I agree that coat, that scarf, nd his shuffle make a great photo.


Blogger PieFace said ... (6:02 AM) : 

Love how the color of the scarf matches that of the car and the hotel's shades... great sense of details ;-)


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

Some of us like to wear our overcoats both "over" a suit or jacket, and, on occasion, without a jacket underneath - the fit will vary in each case. In fact, with a closely fitted overcoat the shape and weight of the jacket underneath can affect the fit in a big way. "Perfection" becomes a moving target.

A footnote to this shot: the parker cars, the key in signor Attolini's hand, proof that the bicycle has to share the Milanese strada ...


Blogger Caroline said ... (3:34 AM) : 

Goodlooking, but his pants are too short... :-)


Blogger ModernGear TV said ... (1:33 AM) : 

I do love how the other blue bits in the photo absolutely popped when I read your caption and looked back at the image with blue in my mind. A wonderful picture for this reason, and interesting insight into how the mind works with words and colors.

The Davil wears Attolini! Wow it's so chic!


Blogger Olimpia Liberti said ... (2:00 PM) : 

I love the blue details in this picture!!


Blogger la femme said ... (12:32 AM) : 

I love that you caught him in front of those awnings and that car - emphasizes the blue.

I covet his coat too.


Blogger R.Grayson said ... (9:15 PM) : 

Any ideas on the brand of shoe? Thanks...
