On the Street....Time Warp, Florence

I feel like if this was shot in black and white it could be an image from the 1930's.

...except for the hair. that saves it from being costumey, lends it a little currency. lovely jacket, too.


Blogger said ... (6:59 PM) : 

It could be... Even if I would guess that his cell phone is in his pant's pocket -or perhaps it is just a lighter-... I love everything about that jacket.

Sartorialist - if your site does anything, it sharpens everyones'
visual perception. This can be in B/W from the 30s, but how do you explain the filtered cig, much less the Range Rover.... the Lear Jet in the upper left. Rite on Sart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:04 PM) : 

I totally agree with you Sart! Why don't you convert the image to b&w and post it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 PM) : 

The hat, book, jacket and cigarette(yes I'm being politically incorrect) make this look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 PM) : 

sure... range rovers were so much cooler back then...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

Great jacket! Good shot, Sart, real, elegant people!

Wonderful shot. What a gorgeous, gorgeous face.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:45 PM) : 

it could be from the 1930's but he would still look stupid then


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:55 PM) : 

My god he's beautiful. I want him for Valentine's Day!


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

I think it could also be 1966, Sart.

beautiful fit on the jacket!! i personally like my sleeves a tiny bit longer, but cropped-a-little-short is in for men's jackets these days i know.

an average suit store will tell you the bottom of the coat should hit where your fingers meet the palm of your hand.
i dig this (jacket) look, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:38 PM) : 

He could've gone without the hat and this would still be a strong look. This is just awesome. I wonder what he had on his feet...


Blogger TypicalFashion said ... (8:40 PM) : 

kind of reminds me of brando


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:49 PM) : 

So hot! But lose the smoke!

Love Everything, simple is good!

Wow. What a cool hat, and a lovely coat, and such poise. A well groomed man is always something to be appreciated.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

Great look apart from the stupid, for lack of no better term, hat. I have to disagree with it looking retro though.

The dark shirt? The finely patterned jacket? Tight pants? The loose hair?

Very contemporary.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 PM) : 

Just so classic. Love it.


Blogger Mitchell Weiss said ... (10:00 PM) : 

Everything looks impeccable.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:04 PM) : 

Well, I like the Zegna jacket fo' sho'... but, even under today's standards, it should at least cover your butt. I believe if you were to look at him from behind, half of it would be left out.

I think jacket pockets are meant to be used, but daaaamn kiddo!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:05 PM) : 

Love it!


Blogger Rebecca Lydia said ... (10:27 PM) : 

that is definitely a wonderful shot and beautiful outfit. i wish i were grand enough to be worthy of being captured by your photo lens.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 PM) : 

The jacket + the cigarette really make this look. It's an example of accessories legitimizing an over-sized hat.

Blogger Brett Svatek said ... (12:11 AM) : 

I think Mike Damone wore this same outfit in Fast Times...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:42 AM) : 

Could be the most beautiful jacket I have ever seen...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:50 AM) : 

He with the sad, sad eyes...


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (1:12 AM) : 

Maybe you ought to play with the levels until it "looks" black-and-white, and repost it?

It's a great photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 AM) : 

Let's do the time warp again...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:07 AM) : 

I'm not sure if it would be 1930's. Maybe if he looses his cigarette. I guess, they smoked fags without filters at that time;-)And he would have definitely shorter hair. Anyway let's leave travel in time behind. He simply looks cute.


Blogger Gratistotal said ... (5:10 AM) : 

When you look for vintage clothes, this is the way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:25 AM) : 

Excellente jacket, really excellente!


Blogger momo said ... (9:50 AM) : 

This is what you call a cupid bow mouth. Happy Valentine's day!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 AM) : 

Austin makes a good point on the coat bottom length, it's shorter than what's recommend, but I like it...makes him look taller. In fact, scroll down the blog and look at the suit/jacket/sweater bottoms that fall at the guy's wrist they all look taller (longer legs) I prefer this proportion to the recommened one we see on Mr Barbera (though don't get me wrong, he still looks good, but he looks like he's half top half bottom).

Would the guy's butt be sticking out a little from behind...maybe, but my girlfriend says she likes being able to see mine.


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

Really cute


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Not many could get away with that hat but it suits him. I like his look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Funny, my no.1 rule when buying clothes is "Would this item look out of place in a 1940's (or earlier) street scene photograph?" No big logos, natural colours, classic tailoring and cuts. Great photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:24 PM) : 

He is absolutely beautiful!! Love everything!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:41 PM) : 

The jacket is pure awesome--though a little too short, right?

The cigarett is cool, but his receding gums won't be in a couple of years.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:17 PM) : 

It's the hat I like best in the picture even though I don't especially like the hat itself. Maybe it pops out at me because the jacket is so simple. He's lovely. I don't think he knows it, which of course makes it better.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:56 PM) : 

Easy and debonair. Very very nice. I want to place his head in my lap, play with his hair and read that book to him beneath a shade tree.


Blogger Miss Cavendish said ... (5:02 PM) : 

The hat, the hair, the eyes, the book, and the smoke (and I'm a vehement nonsmoker)--a young scholar off to read and think. Just perfect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:53 PM) : 

Or still Florence in sixteen something, Renaissance! With his cap and face... Eternal beautiful Italy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:24 PM) : could be an image from the 1930's....
true, maybe an August Sander portrait


Blogger Post-it boy said ... (6:32 PM) : 

...apart from the Range Rover in the background.


Blogger siakohneh said ... (10:09 PM) : 

this photo only shows that good fashion is timeless.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:03 AM) : 

he's just adorable. i could look at this picture for hours.


Blogger Andrew said ... (10:07 AM) : 

Nobody knows how to dress better than the Italians. Excuse moi Paris...


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

I want to make wild love to his hat.


Blogger tintin said ... (2:29 PM) : 

Speaking on behalf of straight men eveywhere...I can only pray he's gay. Then it would be fair he looked like that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 PM) : 

30s meet 70s!! love it!


Blogger Scooby said ... (3:18 AM) : 

What a unique, yet classic look! The hat accentuates the gentleman's hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

I've looked at a lot of photos, and their all so simple, yet they all have something vast about them. Their all so sharp and clean, and their "street" people which makes all of these pictures very unique. I like this picture the most because it's a simple man, wearing a simple everyday outfit, yet with a good angle this shot becomes what you might see on the cover of a modeling magazine.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:50 PM) : 

I like everything. Even the hat. This is another example of how to mix pieces and make them all look JUST right.
Note: the guy is gorgeous and probably intelligent (unless the book is also an accessory LOL).


Blogger sussurro said ... (3:04 PM) : 

How beautiful. Stepped right out of 'Boy with Vase of Roses' by Caravaggio. He could have modeled for several...
It is his attitude, the slightly up-tilted chin that makes him rock this look - as if he's daring you not to like the hat. Which by the way I DON'T. But if you have to see it, better on that head...

How I envy you, Sart!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:58 AM) : 

It's not just his clothes that are good looking...


Blogger Mecino said ... (8:20 AM) : 

What a beautiful pic. He looks so relaxed, so perfect... Indeed he could have come straight from the 1930s... perfect
