what a handsome man! pinstripe or khaki or birthday, i'd like to see him in all his suits! haha

and the unbuttoned collar is so sprezzatura:)

Great jacket - not too skinny, humbler and simpler that way.

And that smile!

His button down buttons are undone! Would Esquire approve?


Blogger Manuel said ... (1:20 PM) : 

clasic, alegant handsome man. Nice

I look forward to reading the comments to this guy's picture. One day I forgot buttoning a button down collar myself and was shocked and embarassed when I discovered it in a bathroom mirror somewhere. At the time I did not see how great it looked! Or not?


Anonymous Qui said ... (1:29 PM) : 

it's always nice to see a man in a suit, I think a little pocket square would've given it the little oomph it needed to be 'his style'


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:48 PM) : 

I love it. Simple, classic, perfect fit.

Wow, Someone can give to me his fone number??? ;P

He ought to meet Mr 2-Plads...they have stuff to teach each other.

What a photograph-the symmetry of the smile, the collar, the cuffs--love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:09 PM) : 

great look, but how about some older guys in something other than suits?

Maybe men should begin buttoning every other button on their shirt front. Striving for an unfussy look is understandable, but wearing garments unbuttoned looks like you forgot to button, instead of looking like you knowingly decided to wear a garment in a relaxed fashion.


Blogger Brummagem Joe said ... (3:09 PM) : 

Great smile from a handsome guy.....on to the duds.......very good, pleasing, nothing really to criticise but a bit blah even for the understated best I can tell it's a mid grey worsted suit with a blue knit tie with blue shirt.....very nicely tailored suit with the raised sleeve at shoulder.....there's definitely a place for understatement and monotones so I don't want to be too picky......the unbuttoned button down pace Gianni Agnelli?.......ok but a bit of a cliche like his other fad for putting his wristwatch outside his shirt cuff.....If he didn't want button down why not go with the English semi spread collar.....He looks very good really but to be fair he should.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:09 PM) : 

que guapo!!!! quién es??


Blogger Carlos Alberto Silva said ... (3:11 PM) : 

A common guy, but very elegant.. I see him on a Armani suit.. o.O

!Qué importante es una bonita sonrisa a cualquier edad! Nice Smile. Toria


Blogger Javi C. said ... (3:47 PM) : 

Interesting complete look, shirt, tie, suit and court(cut) of hair.
I do not like the touch of the buttons of the shirt


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 PM) : 

I wonder what Consuelo would say of this photo. Is he wearing a MARNI suit?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 PM) : 

is there supposed to be a point to that unbuttoned collar? i cant think of one. ruins it for me.


Blogger Blog de la Vogue said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Wow i love your blog :)
i hope you will visit my blog,too and maybe follow it :) of course only if you want :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

Who cares about the collar - look at that smile!


Anonymous dario said ... (4:15 PM) : 

The undone button down buttons remind me of Gianni Agnelli. Would like to see his shoes...


Anonymous Holly said ... (4:16 PM) : 

Illuminating smile! He is dressed to the nines!!!


Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Cant' say I'm a fan of a button down collared shirt with a suit in general. Even more so when the collars aren't buttoned - I think it looks disheveled - in a negative way. Just my humble opinion...



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

Heheh this guy really knows what to do with his suit pockets - USE THEM! :D I believe there was a picture of him a while back, having something bulky in his jacket pocket. While it doesnt look all that sleek or sharp, it really convinces you that this guy feels in a suit like in his pj's. This speeks much more volume than walking around like agent Smith.

Italians still got it for me. This is just another fantastic proof.

Cheers, Alexander

Love him and Consuela, what they do for Marni is simply magic! As non-specific as Marni is, he looks completely opposite to that, yet somehow he and his wife always seem to exude that non-specific Marni aesthetic if that's possible!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:08 PM) : 

Looks very nice, however, I am confused as to why his collar isn't buttoned down...

Blogger isinspira said ... (7:25 PM) : 

He seems to the Smoker, the x-files character, but with a great smile!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:44 PM) : 

I guess beautiful people can get away with things like leaving the collar unbuttoned?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:32 PM) : 

I'm swooning. Is this the same Mr. Castiglioni who did industrial design for Alessi? He is so handsome looks most at home in that gorgeous suit. He's reminding me of the Kennedys. The style and the earnest, honest smile.


Blogger Edna Leshowitz said ... (8:39 PM) : 

Nice photo. He's got quite a set of pearly whites. I suppose leaving the lower button undone makes it easier for him to keep his hands in his pockets, while keeping his good posture???

"Striving for an unfussy look is understandable, but wearing garments unbuttoned looks like you forgot to button, instead of looking like you knowingly decided to wear a garment in a relaxed fashion."

actually, in my opinion, knowingly not buttoning the buttons would of been kind of lame because that means he put thought into looking carefree . . . which is not carefree at all.

so maybe he did forget, and you know what, that's what makes it great. he isn't perfect and that's way hotter than having everything JUST RIGHT. this is the difference between STYLE and FASHION. stylish people are themselves the centrepiece of an outfit, not their tailored suits and designer shoes. and in this case, i noticed his awesome smile and great haircut before anything else.


Blogger Markmont said ... (12:08 AM) : 

This is boring. Only thing I like is the relative darkness of the tie in comparison to the suit. Unbuttoned collar is not doing it for me at ALL.


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

A good looking guy, but the ordinary suit makes him look just like everyone else. Is the unbuttoned collar the most extravagant thing that is "allowed" in male fashion? If so, that is quite sad...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:48 AM) : 

Well for me not buttoning his shirt collar is a no brainer.Ties with button down collars always look like a uniform, so he was only averting disaster. But hey suits with shirts and ties realy are the lowest common denominator for guys over 40.How about some shots with guys who can dress outside this particular box, and say wear a leather jacket?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:31 AM) : 

this guy would look great in a cardboard box. but let's not kid ourselves. shirts with button down collars - please, no. (summer a diff story, of course.)


Blogger Gary K. said ... (8:52 AM) : 

Hmm. Either button your collar or wear a no-button collar, especially with suit and tie. Otherwise it looks either sloppy or like contrived dishevelment.


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

THE italian style!


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (9:54 AM) : 

the unbuttoned thing seems a bit affected when you're wearing a tie and jacket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 AM) : 

Most Americans seem unfamiliar with the unbuttoned button-down. True Italian style.


Blogger Devi said ... (1:03 PM) : 

His smile is the first thing I noticed! That makes the outfit.


Anonymous Miss Zen said ... (1:07 PM) : 

He looks like an aging Robert Kennedy


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 PM) : 

As it was remarked earlier, unbuttoned button-down seem to be unsettling to many... While it can just be a show of confidence.
And why the same "many" do not complain about the unbuttoned front jacket button? (there is at least one in this picture...)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:27 AM) : 

I agree with "called me outfashioned"
it is called "sprezzatura" . Basically a philosophy very popular among Italian guys can be simply interpreted as "I am not trying so much, a down to earth person, not perfect and not trying to be but..... I do have a taste but I wear my clothes, clothes can not wear ME"
When you go to Italy, handsome guys look at you with this expression on their face;
Hey, baby you are so pretty! I'll do everything to meet you but.... If you are not interested.... It is not a big deal either!!
That's a life style for some Italians like "Bella Figura"
Some can understand some can not!
That's why maybe " Fashion is the new art of 21st century"
And what we are discussing here Picasso!

He looks like an insurance salesman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:33 PM) : 

Strange that so many freak out about the unbuttoned collar tabs. Do you have a problem when a shirt is worn without a tie and unbuttoned at the top? Do you have a problem with the lower jacket button undone? But it would be strange not to have the button hole there, right? How about the button hole in the lapel? Should that be buttoned? The point is there are many buttons and holes meant to be left un-fastened for various reasons, and the collar point buttons might reasonably be considered one of those cases, too. This guy carries it off well.


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

The collar, she hands in the pockets and the remarkably thick knot for an unbuttoned look. A man who wears his suit and does not let the suit wear him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:59 PM) : 

Anyone with a bright/light colored tie and french cuffs to his shirt will stand out from the crowd in Milan nowadays. Not that this isn't nice mind you but it seems like the uniform everyone has to go by now..

so smart


Anonymous Destutt de Tracy said ... (3:00 PM) : 

That shirt does not fit with the jackett. Even if unbottoned...Then the jackett requires some more ironning..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 PM) : 

the collar is bothering me. one of my pet peeves is when men don't button their button down collars.


Blogger JB said ... (3:19 PM) : 

managgia la sprezzatura !
