On the Street....Camel Coat Alternative, Florence

Blogger Bedlam said ... (8:47 AM) : 

I like this coat, dont like brown alot but this look is ok.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:48 AM) : 

very nice!

Singapore here~! (:


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

Love the matching shoes and coat. But what's especially nice is the scarf. I WANT the scarf! Anyway he looks both chic and cuddly.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:49 AM) : 

I think your title was well-chosen: this is an alternative. Personally, I think such a fuzzy fabric has no place in a man's wardrobe, but that's just me. Having said that, I like the well-worn shoes of the gent in the top picture, and the unusual scarf of the guy on the left. When you are out covering the fashion events, it is always refreshing that you cover non-fashion people as well. Look forward to more of your photos on Jorge Perez from W Palm Beach

The photos are great. It's wonderfull to see your work improving at every post. The coats look cozy and beautiful while both gents look confident and chic. I guess in this case good personality came along with great clothes.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:00 AM) : 

wonders if they are made from the same dye lot...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:07 AM) : 

Those coats are beautiful! Thank you, Sart!!

The man to the left in the first image looks great too. I love that military/M-65 inspired field jacket. The perfect casual jacket. That looks just like one I saw at Boggi this winter.

I'm not loving the colour,
prefer the traditional camel!


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

Re:the top picture - i looked at the coat and my initial thought was 'Teddy Bear'. then i took in the wearer's fine looks, his hair, those narrow pants and his great beautiful shoes that look as if they were made for him 30 years ago and have been much loved, repaired and polished eversince. As for the turned up collar? nonchalantly perfect.

Mamma mia che brutti these dark camel coats.

Strangely enough, I have been recently begging my father to finally get rid of a very similar one.

However, this is a good example for whoever thinks that in the Italian streets everyone's well dressed and paying attention to style. Simply untrue.




Blogger sbarah said ... (10:25 AM) : 

I love the man below - I wonder what he is discussing on the phone - and the soft chestnut against the ivy is perfect. Good scarf


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

My favorite bit of the first photo is the timing. The man on the right looks like he is just about to stamp out a cigarette butt that is lying in a puddle. I love the absurdity.

The color palette of the second photo suggests that this gentleman could be the grandfather of the stunning redhead from a few days ago.

I am so taken with his smile and his gnarled and knowing hands. I also like the russet-y warmth of his coat, although I'm sure he would be every bit as charming in camel or navy or black...


Blogger lenmeister said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Does anyone know what's the fabric on these coats??? My first guess was a brushed rabbit fur but seems unlikely after reflection. Very nice alternative to camel indeed. Not sure I could ever wear this and look good in it. Seems to be an older look too, not to sound condescending, just a remark. I just feel like you have to mature in fashion to wear ths as well as these gentlemen on here. Snazzy!!


Blogger beths said ... (12:05 PM) : 

Mmmmm, more huggable and rich in color than camel. Love these!


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (12:05 PM) : 

i like the color, texture and overall look. gent in #1 looks very spiffy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 PM) : 

Where do i get one????


Blogger plainwater said ... (12:45 PM) : 

I'm more obsessed with the guy on the left. How cool is he!


Blogger green lantern said ... (1:01 PM) : 

Ok...enough already! You are killing me from the envy I bear looking at these beautiful people in their warm striking winter jackets. I also hope viewing these pics will keep people from asking me "why are you wearing those nice suede shoes in the rain?"


Blogger Toni B said ... (1:49 PM) : 

@leinmeister, the first coat is made from alpaca


Blogger diane said ... (1:51 PM) : 

Nice, warm-looking coats. I like the camel ones better.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:08 PM) : 

pink gloves pairing with the scarf perfectly and an Indiana Jones hat to boot. so adventuresome and rugged with the jacket, yet a hint of playfulness with the accessories. loves it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:12 PM) : 

Never mind the coat, who is that handsome man top right??


Blogger Dominica said ... (3:23 PM) : 

Ohh ! Such great browns ! Caramel, toffee, praliné...all comes to mind !
The colours look so vivid you almost want to taste them !


Blogger beths said ... (3:31 PM) : 

To lenmeister and Sart: Are these coats vicuna?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:01 PM) : 

Great style, both coats. The other man sports suede shoes even on a wet day. Brave!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 PM) : 

The second picture fails my taste. The coat is too long and large, regardless of his age, IMO.


Blogger Brian said ... (4:08 PM) : 

Coat stylish it is!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Yes the guy on the left looks like he's not really trying to be cool but he just is that way naturally with out even knowing it, maybe?


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

both coats look like they are made from real camels!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:48 PM) : 

FABRIZIO! He's absolutely as cool as he looks. Too bad we can't see how crazy his scarf really is.

As for the other two, it reminds me of casentino wool, but it has to be something more elegant i think. I'm not sure that they're the same material, but if so, it is much better made up as the double breasted.


Blogger Leslie said ... (7:55 PM) : 

I love the rich colour of these coats. I especially love the older gentleman's elegant manner even in the looser style of the coat. I am charmed by the look in his eyes and his beautiful hands. And I love the way the colours of the coat and ivy are picked up in the stone underfoot.
Just wonderful! Bravo!


Blogger lenmeister said ... (9:23 PM) : 

Not sure the fabric is either alpaca or vicuna (thanks toni and beths) the fabric looks pretty rugged to just be traditional alpaca, unless its mixed with something else or it went to some process in manufacturing, that is? Or my sight is not what it used to be? lol I just want to know what to ask for if I ever go looking for something similar. A sart. intervention here would be appreciated :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:36 PM) : 

I don't know, I am not as thrilled with these as the camel hair - the bottom photo of the pleasant gent on his phone looks like he's out in a bathrobe. However, I do so like his brown suede monkstraps! I wanta pair of those.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (6:08 AM) : 

wow, great finds!


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

i like the color, texture and overall look. gent in 1 looks very spiffy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Gentleman 3 looks so cosy and friendly and the color scheme with the tiles and ivy is just perfect.
It´s a pretty world we have.


Blogger Sanna said ... (11:35 AM) : 

Such a wonderful gentleman in the brown suede shoes!!!

Excellent men's coat posts over the past few days. Could you recommend a place to buy a camel hair that buttons up to one's neck? I'm not a lapels person when it comes to overcoats.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 PM) : 

lvoe dthe colors.


Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (4:57 PM) : 

I like the color of the coat a lot.


Blogger J.A.F. said ... (7:43 AM) : 

I really love that nubby wool, great textures. This kind of dressing seems to reflect the organic textures surrounding the city. bravo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:24 AM) : 

The 2nd gentleman, sort of looks like the good-guy version of the Penguin from the Batman (returns?) movie. No disrespect though, he really looks like a nice guy.
Love the shoes!


Blogger zuccotto said ... (1:15 PM) : 

Like both photos a lot.
Love both coats.. which seem to be worn by interesting men.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:45 PM) : 

I'm noticing that the Italian men like cuffs.


Blogger Nur said ... (9:40 AM) : 

I'm guessing those coats are made of alpaca...



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:17 AM) : 

I keep gonig 'camel coat' in my head every time I see someone wearing a, er, camel coat. Makes me chuckle a bit, and I probably look odd. Anyway, keep up the good work Mr S. List.

Nice coat, great color.


Blogger Eszter said ... (3:00 AM) : 

if i would be in his age I could love him. he is so handsome


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:46 PM) : 

After ice cream covered with syrup the color of the coat, I want to begin by making the scarf my very own.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:03 PM) :
