On the Street.... Navy & White, Florence

I love that sometimes a hat can still be worn without the hipster irony of "oh, look I'm wearing an old-school hat."

Panama hats are the hottest thing in Paris this year... everybody is wearing them!


Blogger Lucas Jones said ... (10:00 AM) : 

His pocket square really sets the tone.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 AM) : 

Florence never looked so good when I was there!


Anonymous oneof365 said ... (10:11 AM) : 

God, he is gorgeous sans clothes. Yeah he's got style, but whoa, what a face. This must be after a runway show or shoot. Guys who are young and handsome don't dress like that and just sit around. En Fuego!



Blogger Charles said ... (10:12 AM) : 

I completely agree with the hat comment. I will also never doubt a navy suit and a white shirt (especially when the fit is excellent).


Blogger jcrew guy in Canada said ... (10:12 AM) : 

It's all perfect from the hat, the upturned cuff, to the slim cut suit. I like the sunglasses in the chest pocket. Beautiful blue coloured suit.

the hat is the least hipstery thing about him.

Button up, get a nice tie, button the cuffs, shave, and he becomes nicely retro-ish/proper/awesome.

Now THAT'S how you wear a jacket and button down shirt in the summer. Sorry, but I thought the jacket with shorts in an earlier post was way too costume-y and uptight looking. This, on the other hand...fabulous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

ya know, it's been done..but he does it well and he looks good, so, it's OK!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

I get your point Scott on the hipster irony with regards to hats. As a hat lover myself, I believe that one should dress to suit the hat. It isn't simply a matter of throwing on a panama/fedora/flat-cap/breton-cap/boater/bowler while wearing sneakers and a hoodie. Call me conservative (at 28 years old) but I do think that hats deserve some respect instead of being treated as just another option to add to one's postmodern mix-bag of accessories.

The hat looks natural...not like he is trying too hard. Very relaxed and smooth. The pocket square is clutch!!! I've always been a sucker for great colored cashmere socks and amazing pocket squares.

super rad outfit he's rocking. I don't usually like hats because great hair trumps great hat all day long, but he wears it well. Awesome navy edged pocket sq and good shirt collar. What were his shoes? I'll bet whatever it was, he was sockless.

i have ceased wearing hats just for this reason. you walk down the street here in seattle and every frat boy, thug, hipster, etc seems to think that by putting a fedora, or driving cap with their cargos or tight jeans makes the look.
the hat makes him look like he is trying too hard.
the suit and everything about how he is wearing it is wonderful. love it.


Anonymous James said ... (11:25 AM) : 

Great look, really cool, the panama makes the image, the working holes, the open shirt.. nothing is by chance.

Really like his cuff-links! Fantastic fit of the jacket. Looks fresh and modern, yet classy and timeless.

While I am very glad to see men's hats making a resurgence, I would be even happier if hat etiquette were to return. No, you cannot continue to wear your hat at the dinner table.

Not to be to critical ,I think the hat sits to high on his head from the brim to the ear,

All this hipster rage is obnoxious. Hipsters are like any other awful subculture, clinging on to their trends and running them into overkill. Get over the fact that their trends cross over the line into yours and ignore the fact they don't wear it as well--their use of an object isn't going to tarnish yours.

That said, he looks fabulous. I take my cues on how to dress my boyfriend from your photos, streamlining the costumed look of some, and making adjustments for personality & whatev.

anyway, great shot

This may be the best-looking young man I've ever seen on this site. Everything about his clothing, accessories & grooming suggests a respect for tradition balanced by 21st-century ease. There are so many charming, quirky details here: he's obviously a man with great personal style. French? Italian? Brazilian? American? The fact that his nationality isn't obvious is yet another thing to admire...

The people that do not like this guy's "hipster" look should go hug a missile and cry for global warming or something like that. Something that really matters. This guy is clean and showing quite an amount of respect in his look. People and their tags just murder me. How about freaking just "individual" or "cool" (does not give a damn about mob-driven conformity or rules).

Pre-schoolers and kindergartners should wear Panamas to learn to think on their own and be "cool", not be restrained and part of the "herd."

The neckline and the shoulder cut of the blazer looks absolutely right on him, and this is an example of a good color that substitutes black.

I agree with the first anonymous, Florence never looked so good when I lived there either! I think they are improving and forgetting the "the-more-it-shines-the-better" period, when they wore a lot of golden/silver items... but it's curious how men there have always been much more stylist than women, I guess it's because of the innate elegance some italian men have...

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:22 AM) : 

Actually, hats were hugely popular (functional?) until the 1950's. They serve a purpose, a straw type hat for the summer to help keep the sun away and felt in the winter to, well, keep you head warm and protect from the elements. And, yes, there is such a thing as hat ettiquet. At the dinner table? How about taking the hat off once you go inside. Again, a hat has a function, indoors what would be the function other than an accessory? Oh yeah, the guy looks great!! But, maybe TOO perfect?? He's maxed out, it ain't leisure wear.


Blogger JMitchell said ... (9:58 AM) :

I believe I am what you would call a hipster. I'm 16 and I own a fedora hat. I shop at Urban Outfitters, Topman; I got the hat while 15 and I have recently abandoned it for fear of being called a hipster. When I bought the hat, I thought "I really like this hat, I like the way it looks, and I like how I look wearing it, I like how it goes with what I'm wearing, I like the options it may give," etc. Not so much,
"oh, look I'm wearing an old-school hat." Does that exempt me from hipster-ness?

I'm going to hazard a guess and say the suit is made by Boglioli. It has the shoulder of the K model and has very high armholes and a very slim silhouette. Also the sleeve buttons already come functional in the K model. Sart would you happen to know for sure and confirm either way?

Ha! Yes, Sart I agree with you 100% about hipsters. This gentleman reminds me of the classic looks from the 50's.

I think we need to get past these rules of menswear that plague every man who wants to explore how he dresses. Otherwise we'd be locked in the rigid etiquette of whenever menswear in its present form was developed - 1800s? Don't damn this fantastic man for playfully unbuttoning his suit sleeve! Don't file him under try-hard for wearing a hat to be stylish and shaded! Just be glad he exists to bring us all a little pleasure.

I'm glad to say I know this very versatile young man in question; this picture portrays hem really how he is. All the time. Clothing and style are one of his many(!) passions. Currently he’s seriously contemplating about opening a shop for bespoke suits in The Hague (the Netherlands).

As for his current profession; no, he is not a model nor is he Italian. He’s just a gentleman of leisure who is successful at everything he lays his hands on. That is, what he truly believes in.

By the way, I do believe that this hat is not called a Fedora but a Trilby. Being a hat with a shorter brim angled down at the front and turned up at the back. Whilst a Fedora has a much wider brim which is more level. (For more information:

Hi! Fortunately hats are back and hopefully to stay. It is still hard sometimes not to feel that irony when waering one myself.

someone back there compared the young gentleman to Monsieur Alain Delon. Nice observation. The young man does seem to have that elegant and nonchalant detachment for which Alain Delon was renowned.

The mere mention of Alain Delon makes my 60 year old mother swoon :)
