Fantastic jacket..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:34 PM) : 

i like the color and i like how this guy wears the jacket, but the way!! it has to be a little tighter.
looks toooo grandfather like
but still his style is clean


Blogger marichuka said ... (5:39 PM) : 

the colour is faboulous!


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (5:44 PM) : 

I always love a blast of purple fantastic!! Great pic, Sart. I love the shirt and ribbon belt here. Very well executed.


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

I love the colour...It really pops up and it's great that man embraces this colour as much as women do. And I think he looks great


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:02 PM) : 

i love his expression. He reminds me of my dad if he had stumbled upon a fashion miracle


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:16 PM) : 

i love the belt!


Blogger John B Pritchett said ... (6:25 PM) : 

Great jacket! Love the matching belt. Where do I find one of each?


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

Blue and grey is such a great combination, so simple but still very effective. I think the rather slim pants compensate for the grandfather like jacket. He should change the belt though.


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

The shape of the jacket is a little old fashioned...but the eighties are back... With him it works really good, because he's slim. Want to touch this smooth leather.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:33 PM) : 

I NEED to know who makes those "O" ring ribbon belts! Anyone?


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

how cool! I love those pouchy pockets above the fitted waistline. What a great modern take on the bomber jacket. And the belt is a divine touch.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 PM) : 

great jacket, however I would have thought twice about pairing it with more purple.


Blogger Tsar Kasim said ... (9:18 PM) : 

I love love love the belt and how it peeks out. As for the jacket itself, not so much (particularly the nip at the waist).


Blogger junglesiren said ... (10:24 PM) : 

Gorgeous jacket. I like that the bottom buttons are left open, otherwise these bomber jackets look too 80's and don't flatter the body.

Purple suede! Mmmm. I want one too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:31 PM) : 

i disagree with the person below who said it should be tighter. it should be tighter if it was made for a woman.


Blogger Jana FitzGerald said ... (11:53 PM) : 

You are right, That jacket has a really nice shape, and goes to show that something does not have to be completely form fitting to be complimentary. I love the shirt too, and the aviators, but I think the ribbon belt really kills this look. Maybe a brown leather belt, or none at all -- do you think this even needs a belt? well, maybe it does, but it should be something simple. The purple ribbon belt makes this look like a novelty or something. I feel like ribbon belts should only be worn on Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:30 AM) : 

The jacket is beautiful, you can almost feel the soft leather (or is it suede?). And the bit of belt is a perfect match.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 AM) : 

great interpretation of the purple trend


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:43 AM) : 

I left Milan almost 2 months ago after living there for a year and a half..I miss it even more after seeing these beautiful pictures. Italians really know how to dress, they aren't afraid of colour, especially the men. Bravo for this guy! Mi piace la sua giacca. Che bello!


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

Perfect. I have very similar in leather, in very faint green, only with a zipper.

I think i'll start unzipping the bottom. These jackets have a weird overlapping effect with the waist line. Guess its the bomber style...


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

velvet belt + blu suede's so cool...real italian style! marco


Blogger Izzy said ... (4:59 AM) : 

Reminds me of the post you did before on these two guys wearing purple suede car shoes. Funny enough, I find purple suede remarkably masculine..


Blogger the_eye_collector said ... (5:48 AM) : 

Is that suede? Count me in! I cannot get enough of that purple and grey combination. I love how he's got the other purple accents too, like the belt and stripes on the shirt.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:55 AM) : 

and the shoes??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:30 AM) : 

That is a cool jacket in a lovely colour. I love it when men embrace colour. i like the way he shows his belt buckle too. Is it vintage?


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

I wonder what kind shoes he wears


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

I love the colour and the texture!


Blogger Olviya said ... (7:17 AM) : 

and those belt!
and those shirt!
matching very very good!


Blogger Jagucha said ... (7:42 AM) : 

great jacket! awesome colour and material (is it suede? I just love it!)


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:07 AM) : 

The purple he used is almost like the purple on Ralph Lauren's Purple Label "labels". Most people regard suede as a fragile leather with bad cuts from the 60s and 70s, but in recent years it has gotten better, softer- at least suede of good quality. Great look overall! Jorge from W Palm Beach


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:30 AM) : 

I'll cast my vote with what the czar says above. The shape of the jacket doesn't work for me. The combination of the shape and the color look a bit too feminine for my taste.
But, the belt is great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 AM) : 

Well yes, this is perfect. Again, if one is slim they can wear anything and he is taking advantage of it by wearing a jacket with extra bulk at the pockets and letting the belt buckle peek from between the open buttons. Wonderful color and assemblage of ingredients. He looks great.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (9:38 AM) : 



Blogger PhilM said ... (10:19 AM) : 

yes, this jacket rocks! and it goes very nicely with the gray pants.


Blogger norawoah said ... (10:35 AM) : 

You didn't have to say the photo was taken in Italy. Could this man be anymore Italian?


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

great color combination....I wonder what shoes was he wearing. Too bad it was cut off when the pic was taken...


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:01 PM) : 

I'm a woman and want the purple jacket--fresh!


Blogger mockumentary said ... (12:29 PM) : 

the bomber is flattering on just about anyone. worn and purple and lovely!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:38 PM) : 

I love the belt and the dove l'avrà comprata?


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:50 PM) : 

It's a purple A-1 flight jacket. The original jacket from 1927 until superceeded by the A-2 (the classic ww2 "bomber") in the early 30's. Original A-1's were made in capeskin. This is quite a startling interpretation of it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:52 PM) : 

Very nice - In a Tab Hunter kinda way . . .


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 PM) : 

The color of the pants is ideal to tone the jacket's down, but I'm having problems with the matched purple belt.


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (7:47 PM) : 

The jacket would probably cool with those purple suede Tods driving shoes that you photographed (photo-graped)a few month ago. Great, rich color.


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:41 AM) : 

I enjoy this image, love the aesthetic. It's classic and smart. Makes me miss Bruce Chatwin.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:39 AM) : 

Fabulous one with the same shape in mustard but looks better with purple!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Who is this fantastic man? He has appeared on Sartorialist before. I assume he is an editor because his pic always coincides with the collections


Blogger Andy said ... (2:30 PM) : 

I love those colors! The belt is great. The jacket fit, however, is a little bulbous at the pockets. It looks like he's carrying baseballs.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 AM) : 

omg. that's the same hot guy who had those purple driving mocs on. who is he?


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:44 PM) : 

For those of you asking about finding his belt, I'd recommend J Press, they have some similar styles. If that doesn't fit your fancy, wait until the spring lines when J Crew and Polo will certainly have something similar in stock.


Blogger Gentleman Farmer said ... (5:55 PM) : 

J. Crew has a near identical purple/white stripe o ring belt in their stores right now. Looks great with my grey flannel slacks and brown suede lace ups.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:17 PM) : 

It's the best shade of purple.


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

absolutely tasteful.


Blogger Sage said ... (11:08 PM) : 

I absolutely love this. I love the way it pinches in at the waist, the sleeves, i love the collar, the buttons, the pockets, the SHAPE, OH THE SHAPE, and the choices he's made for the rest of the look are excellent. Well done.

A common image of a common boutique owner in a common village


Blogger Jor said ... (4:29 PM) : 

Really? I don't know about this one. He looks a little stunned to be caught on camera wearing this out. I think the cut of this jacket is all wrong (save the sleeves and collar). Why on earth would you want to wear a purple jacket that automatically gave you love-handles? Don't get me wrong, i love purple and this is a great shade of it, but paired with this slapdash design, feh. Feh i say.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:42 AM) : 

...and the belt, and the fit of the trousers and the shirt under the jacket, and his normal nonchalance, and his accessories. I would gladly wear it all. Tutto. Alluring really.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 AM) : 

A "Deep Purple" fan?: Jacket purple and shirt purple? Are his shoes and socks purple too? And his underpants?

Enough little natural to be smart. I prefer the "priest" in Prada.


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

i love the confidence of this guy...this look is so right for him


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:25 AM) : 

chi è questo bell'uomo che non si fa più vedere in palestra...


Anonymous Deals Hunt said ... (4:35 AM) : 

the colour is faboulous!


Blogger Krishna said ... (1:12 AM) : 

I really apreciate your post. Interresting point of view. Thx for sharing.
