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

i think you wear a suit just as well if not better.

Blogger Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said ... (12:29 PM) : 

so classic, it fits him perfectly!


Blogger Gina said ... (12:30 PM) : 

I love this classic suit! He looks so comfortable in it.


Anonymous Airik Cløv said ... (12:30 PM) : 

You should wear your pants higher then and not wear 3/4 length coats. Just because you aren't as tall as him doesn't mean you should look like it.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:31 PM) : 

That jacket is so well suited to and tailored for him it looks like a sweater worn with style and comfort


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:33 PM) : 

He definitely looks comfortable in a suit. For my tastes, the waist of that suit is too high, and makes his torso look disproportionally short. I prefer a more modern cut with a slightly lower waist line. Not talking hip huggers or anything so extreme, but not that high.


Anonymous Dominos said ... (12:38 PM) : 

He'd look A LOT better without the moustache!


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

I'm not wild about the mustache, but he looks great in that suit.


Blogger Devi said ... (12:40 PM) : 

Well I LOVED your suit (sans tie) when you were in DC!

You look fabulous in a suit, Sart. So does this guy. Where are all the guys in suits? I think nothing is sexier.

Absoluto perfecto

He looks like Dr. Phil, but thinner.

Blogger CW said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Good combination, especially with the medium-spread collar shirt. Does the tie have a pattern? On my monitor it looks very dark blue or black.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:11 PM) : 

you look better of course


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:12 PM) : 

Where is the suit from?

Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (1:20 PM) : 

wow, he looks like a trimmer Dr. Phil =)


Anonymous sioux said ... (1:29 PM) : 

timeless elegance but I find that you have much more personality and charisma of this gentleman


Blogger Laurence John said ... (1:31 PM) : 

that's a good lapel width.


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

Again I ask, where is the female counterpoint to him? Someone this age and equally chic. Would she wear the fetish high heels? I don't think so. Where are the non-fashion career women who could match this sartorially.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:34 PM) : 

That is a classy white shirt. People don't often pay attention to white shirts, but let me tell you, not all white shirts are made the same. This is one is supreme!



Anonymous Ana Borba said ... (1:45 PM) : 

classic and clean , definitely , a good suit in a elegant man


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

Dr. Phil?


Blogger Annabel said ... (1:54 PM) : 

scott stop kidding yourself this IS how you look in a suit! After meeting you in SF I realized I didn't even thank you for dealing with that line and making everyone feel like we were friends, if only for a second. You looked AMAZING, and thank you for doing what you do!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:57 PM) : 

Very nice. He looks relaxed and not to stiff in what could be really an uptight look. The moustache adds character.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:04 PM) : 

What is The Standard in Milano?


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (2:11 PM) : 

He does look incredible, but you wear as suit as well, if not better, no?


Anonymous larehpirep said ... (2:29 PM) : 

La bella figura con sprezzatura!


Blogger Nat said ... (2:30 PM) : 

chic Dr. Phil!


Blogger Thomas said ... (2:38 PM) : 

you can never go wrong with a navy suit.


Blogger Raul Villalobos said ... (2:42 PM) : 

Absolutely perfect. The length of his sleaves, the cut of the suit, the color of both suit, shirt, tie. Pulls it off flawlessly.


Anonymous Markus H. said ... (2:42 PM) : 

Only his head is interesting, the rest is as usual very boring.


Blogger L said ... (2:42 PM) : 

Haha... He does look like Dr. Phil


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 PM) : 

But.... don't you??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 PM) : 

you look better I'm sure


Anonymous Figaro said ... (2:48 PM) : 

1. The sleeves look uncomfortably tight.

2. The jacket looks as if he couldn't possibly button it.


Anonymous CK Dexter Haven said ... (2:51 PM) : 

I'd like to see some cuff. Other than that, though - sweet suit, nice shirt collar.


Anonymous garciamadrid said ... (3:08 PM) : 

I have got a doubt in the design


Blogger Nouvelle Fag said ... (3:09 PM) : 

this is how any men ought to look in a suit!

yes, he looks really sharp

Very good classic look.

He is really stylish, but so are you Scott!


Blogger Lolitta said ... (3:59 PM) : 

First word that came to mind was, "dapper." How dapper:)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:03 PM) : 

Thank God I'm not the only one who thought he looked like a young Dr. Phil! Love the suit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:12 PM) : 

I would love to see the hems--I am not loving the highwater lenths and rolled pant--to break the long, clean line seems counterintuitive to me. I am hoping he has a normal hem.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:14 PM) : 

Handsome... this is TODAY'S MOUSTACHE, not Dr. Phil's 1970s porn 'stache. And he's WAY more attractive.

I do have to say the pants are a bit high and Scott looks better in a suit!


Blogger Bell said ... (4:24 PM) : 

standar? ¡¡NO!! ¡oh my God Scott!
He and his suit is wonderfull.
Elegant natural, clasic wear forever.
You can dress this suit


Blogger Passport Foodie said ... (4:30 PM) : 

You and me both, my friend.

Looks like a younger, better dressed Dr. Phil.

Anonymous davidsl said ... (5:02 PM) : 

i would like to see some cuff, otherwise, nicely cut pinstripe suit. can't tell if he's wearing a belt or not. my guess is not, since the waist is high enough where a belt is not necessary if the pants actually fit. and i like his 'stach!


Blogger uhuhuhjn said ... (5:05 PM) : 

i love the color of his suit.


Blogger kylie said ... (5:11 PM) : 

you do look like that


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:41 PM) : 

that's the difference between a man that appreciates the art of wearing a suit as opposed to another who wears one because he has to. we are accustomed to seeing business men in ill-fitting suits who can't wait to get home and jump into a pair of board shorts. The Milanese instead appreciates the art of wearing one and the love that goes behind making a well-cut suit.

The only thing I would ditch is the newspaper.



Blogger J.A.F. said ... (5:49 PM) : 

That's how we all want to look in a suit.


Anonymous V said ... (5:59 PM) : 

the high waist pants are beautiful! Especially for this winter, expect to see them more and more...


Blogger JR said ... (6:07 PM) : 

No cuff and too much pocket square--very close, but not perfect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:14 PM) : 

If you notice the front shirt collar and the profile of the shoulder to neck line on the suit flow perfectly. Its really unusual and makes it look really clean. w/o that Ikea thing. I really like it but can only assume it was a coincidence that a fashionable man has happen to him. Well done!

You look great in a suit if not better too! Great picture love your blog!


Blogger chayaleeeee said ... (6:53 PM) : 

I just have to say this... he looks like a well dressed Dr. Phil...lmao!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:09 PM) : 

The top of his necktie looks scrappy to me, but love the high waist...


Blogger aroonietoons said ... (10:38 PM) : 

Wow, those are big-ass lapels, but he makes them work. Normally not a fan of the stache, but it complements his look so well that I can't deride him for it.


Anonymous greendress said ... (10:49 PM) : 

his face looks as if it is just filled with so much character. and the suit fits him so well.

a very good one sart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 PM) : 

does anyone else think his lapels are too big? and his collar isn't the right shape for his face/neck... also loose, asymmetrical ties bug me. i know that's picky, he totally looks awesome.


Blogger Screaming Mouth said ... (12:07 AM) : 

Surprisingly wide lapel...


Anonymous Oonagh said ... (1:52 AM) : 

This is also how I want to look in a suit - and I'm a girl.


Blogger Jenn said ... (3:01 AM) : 

neat and clean! I wish there were more blue business suits!


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

1. Is his shirt truly white? It looks less bright than his pocket square, which is defintiely white and defintiely a ncie touch.
2. The jacket fits very nicely across the shoulders. He should be flashing a bit of shirt cuff.
3. A rolled Italian newspaper makes a great accessory.


Blogger Laura K said ... (12:55 PM) : 

h my gosh, as I scrolled down I just saw his face first and I thought "Wow, Dr. Phil , really?" and then I saw it was skinny Dr.Phil. So funny! I am glad others posted the same!


Blogger Fernando said ... (1:38 PM) : 

What simple is elegance!!!

Absolutly perfect.


Blogger Jason Wednesday Miller said ... (4:09 PM) : 

A black tie really? It works but I would think this guy can do better. And he better have some black monk-strap shoes on!

I love it though, you can tell he is very comfortable in a suit. That is what is all about, being comfortable in the clothes you wear! (and looking good of course!)


Anonymous Style said ... (4:20 PM) : 

I would make the sleeves a bit shorter about 2cm , in order to show the cuffs


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:41 PM) : 

"This is how I want to look in a suit." Me too! And you do look good in a suit. I only wish, in the last couple of pictures I've seen of you in a suit, that you'd worn it with a tie.

I once got a complement by a lady when trying on a suit. If felt very good (the complement, and the suit). If more ladies told their men that they look good in a suit, you'd see a lot more suit wearing men these days.


Blogger lydia said ... (5:09 PM) : 

this is the epitome of a stylish gentleman! so perfect. and so italian!

you do look like this in a suit, no doubt about it.


Anonymous Emily said ... (5:50 PM) : 

This suit fits him perfectly and the proportions are wonderful, but he's got nothing on you, Scott. Seriously.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:03 PM) : 

Ok, I've been thinking about this some more (probably way too much). The reason in my previous comment I wish you'd worn a tie in your pictures, besides the general excellence and coolness of neckties, is that it completes a suit and gives it a more polished and finished look. I'm not against wearing suits and jackets with open necked shirts. That look has its place and it often looks very good, but I think ties are underrated. I think a tie elevates a man's outfit the way adding certain ingredients elevate a dish. Even in the current trendy style of ties worn straightened or loosely with jeans ( and I really like that style, long may it last) it adds another dimension (a "dressy" element with virile undertones) to a casual or semi-casual look, plus all the other benefits a tie gives to a man's outfit (framing the face, adding a strong vertical line, etc.) whether the outfit is dressy or casual.

I think the tie is a key reason the gentleman in the picture looks so good. Its simplicity conveys confidence and its solid color bespeaks strength. It enhances his shirt, complements and mirrors the pinstripes, the silhouette of the jacket and folds of its fabric. It unifies his clothing, drawing all the elements together (including the watch, the pocket square, even the folded newspaper) to the center. It then draws the eyes up to his face, with the knot as an exclamation point. It tells the onlooker "Here I am. I am a Man".


Blogger jonzak said ... (9:51 PM) : 

It's the prevailing joy of spirit that you capture with the lens that I so enjoy. This, yet another example that brings me to a smile of my own. Thx!

you look better. I think the tie is a key reason the gentleman in the picture looks so good. Good combination, especially with the medium-spread collar shirt.


Blogger The Red Velvet Shoe said ... (6:48 AM) : 

I agree with anonymous above~~the tie is a must to accomplish the "Well Dressed Man". Look at James Bond, he ALWAYS wears a tie! :)

You'll have to add a tie to your ensemble when you visit Boston...



Blogger Richard said ... (5:01 AM) : 

What shoes was here wearing - ?


Blogger Javi C. said ... (4:08 PM) : 

A great photography. He(she) still has the suit perfect, narrow and exact, the length of the tie and the neck of the shirt are perfect.
In all the photographies that this gentleman goes out, the look is always perfect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:02 PM) : 

An italian classic style: CLASS!


Blogger T said ... (9:40 PM) : 

he looks like a hot doctor phil


Blogger Alex said ... (10:13 AM) : 

If you love this image, maybe you love it because it's a classic look. Wide lapels, high waisted trousers, slim sleeves - it's the Hollywood golden age of Cary Grant, Gary Cooper and Bogart.I hope every year that this look is on the way back in, for good.

He looks great. Would love a bit of cuff to top it off.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:26 PM) :
