So cool. I'm just back from Rome. The Italians respect for accessories is admirable!


Blogger Casilda said ... (5:38 PM) : 

I´m sure some people born stylish, cause the natural style is very difficult to achieve!

Amazing picture!



Blogger X said ... (5:38 PM) : 

Customised doctor bag? Amazing! And the red gloves peeking out... and the cape! The hat! A very creative and stylish dresser.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 PM) : 

What an intriguing looking man - I would love to see him motion.

I love the matching warm tones of his gloves and the trimming on his hat.

your face is interesting


Blogger JouJou Loves You said ... (7:21 PM) : 

His coat and bag are RIDICULOUS!!!! What a dope a$$ old man. Especially while walking the streets of Milan. So glam. that town is....hell all of Italy. I remember just being in the airport in Rome and being utterly intrigued and in awe by all of the beauty walking around in that place...and that was JUST the airport.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:27 PM) : 

this is perfection, i love everything including the orange gloves. If my father lived in europe, this is exactly how he would dress for the colder weather, perhaps not the bag though.


Anonymous Blondie said ... (7:43 PM) : 

Hot stuff, he's a handsome young man with a cool bag ;)



Blogger Sarah Grace said ... (7:49 PM) : 

I love how fashion lasts through the ages. Its timeless. Weather your 21 or 71, every age can be a fashion inspiration.


Blogger Daphne said ... (8:02 PM) : 

I am dying for this guy to be MY doctor. He is truly something! The glove peaking from the coat and gripping that INCREDIBLE bag. And mostly that coat!!! oh man.
Beautiful photo, Scott.


Blogger SnapandPrint said ... (8:03 PM) : 

The bag, the coat, the hat, the gloves. Fantastic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:14 PM) : 

Fantastic cape coat. I wish I lived in Europe.


Blogger Anthea said ... (8:37 PM) : 

He is the most smashing looking man I have ever seen. Love the color and crispness of the photo!

Great symmetry throughout the shot.

Blogger Aleisha-Rose said ... (9:53 PM) : 

He looks like he just stepped out of a Hayao Miazaki animation film. Very warm yet mysterious.



Blogger Life Abroad said ... (10:07 PM) : 

the punch of colour in his hat is what immediately caught my attention. fashion is ageless.

True men carry purses, as shown in this picture. He has such a timeless look.


Blogger Southern Femme said ... (11:03 PM) : 

WOW. Even though I am half his age & a woman, I would wear that outfit especially that amazing monogrammed bag! Fantastic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:35 PM) : 

Doesn't everyone look great standing on wet European cobblestones?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 PM) : 

Great bag! WHat style!



Blogger Scorpion Disco said ... (12:27 AM) : 

He and Sherlock Holmes would have a lot to talk about


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:56 AM) : 

Italians, like other Europeans are not humble about their academic achievements. Holders of doctorate degrees (Ph.Ds) regularly use the title "Dottore". This old gent, therefore, might not be an M.D. at all. (Some Italian physicians use "Dr.", rather than "Dott.", in order to clarify the situation, but there is no general rule.)


Blogger Siru said ... (1:28 AM) : 

Lovely Gentleman!

Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (1:42 AM) : 

It's all about that coat! A little Transylvania in Milan!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:50 AM) : 

It's his hat that reaches out to me and those penetrating eyes!!

¡que señor tan elegante¡


Blogger Cobalt Violet said ... (4:57 AM) : 

What a stylie Doc! Love the hat, gloves and coat combo. Great photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 AM) : 

The bag is My Style Bags, a new Italian brand. The shops are in Italy (Milan, Rome, Bologna, Verona and Rimini), but you can buy online at


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:44 AM) : 

lovely to see the tradition reinstated of having your own initials on your bags, instead of giving free advertising to the bag's producers [sorry LV, C etc.!]


Blogger riviera t. (tania bucci) said ... (5:54 AM) : 



Blogger Beauty Is Diverse said ... (6:54 AM) : 



Blogger Alice said ... (7:46 AM) : 

I have never seen an old man with a cape coat until now!He seems so stylish!I also loove his gloves and his hat!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:46 AM) : 

There are some photos that really urge you to find out more and this is one of those photos. Everything about this man is intriguing. Wonderful.


Blogger Gerald said ... (7:48 AM) : 

OMG Carrick Great Coat!!! I love his coat and also his bag!! The hat and gloves make me speechless, it's all perfect! He is so stylish and chic, age is not the matter seriously :D
I love your blog, great shot!
And yes, I have just bought your book ;)


Blogger COCAMIA said ... (8:10 AM) : 

I want to have an espresso with him!!!


Blogger patuz said ... (8:42 AM) : 

Oh so chic! The bag's definitely from the Milanese boutique MY STYLE BAGS (corso venezia)!


Blogger iida said ... (9:34 AM) : 

That monogrammed bag is something to be jealous of. And the orange gloves are wonderful, as is Sherlock Holmes-esque coat.


Anonymous John Agee Paris said ... (10:06 AM) : 

What is in the water in Italy that produces such chic? I'm an American expat who lives in Paris, and I LOVE France, but really, no one touches the Italians. They are in a class by themselves.


Blogger LORRAINE. said ... (10:29 AM) : 

Great picture, good looking man!


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (10:51 AM) : 

Love the bowler bag! xo


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:11 AM) : 

This guy is chic, I'm in Sicily and I have not come across "one of these" haute this guy, so HAUTE!!

Blogger Unknown said ... (11:48 AM) : 

That looks like Via Santa Marta...


Anonymous Meadow said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Wow. what a cool dude! (that bag is bonkers.)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 PM) : 

Does anyone know where I can get a similar bag in the US (even without the initials)?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:16 PM) : 

One word: Fabulous!


Blogger CW said ... (3:30 PM) : 

As I wrote that the red bag dominated a woman in an earlier photo, so this bag dominates this gent. However, given his profession, that is understandable. If the woman would have been a physician, that would have been a great physician's bag.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 


Everything about this shot is divine...

Great find, Scott.


Blogger brightlightsbigcity said ... (6:03 PM) : 

Amazing bag and as usual beautiful shot.


Blogger Sophisticated Misfit said ... (8:44 PM) : 

JouJou, agreed entirely. I like neither coat nor bag. I love those cobblestones though and the streetscape -stunning, in fact.



Blogger Katie said ... (9:11 PM) : 

Man oh man, I sincerely wish my doctor was that deeply fabulous.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (10:40 PM) : 

Young, old, it doesn't matter. The Europeans have got what it takes. Look at this man! He created his look and how he presents it to the world decades ago. He never doubts his fashion choices for a moment. The thought, "What should I wear today" never enters his mind. And yes, he is sexy too! He has that "Come Hither" look.


Blogger Dana Landon said ... (11:57 PM) : 

This photo is gorgeous and this man is fantastic. His monogrammed bag adds such a great pop to his dark well fit coat.

He is so perfectly framed by the lines of the buildings around him. You have such an eye, very fun to watch. Thanks!


Blogger Blon D. Troit said ... (12:32 AM) : 

OH! and the PINK!!!


Blogger Diane said ... (3:06 AM) : 

I am speechless with this gentleman. I just wish I'd live in a city where you actually see this people on the street!



Blogger Kroshyk said ... (4:18 AM) : 

His bag is really cool! And the gloves are suitable to his hat.This very stylish))Charming man


Blogger . said ... (4:35 AM) : 

He looks almost shy...

Like it.


Blogger LimtdEdition said ... (1:20 PM) : 

That bag is to DIE for!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:28 PM) : 

Brillllliant portrait - from its composition to the fashion to the "je ne sais quoi" expression - it's really quite perfect.

Chich Cape!


Anonymous Chiara Biasi said ... (4:08 PM) : 

i m in love with the bag!!


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

The orange gloves are probably a pair of Hermes gloves! Hence why he's wearing the orange colour! I say the cape is a classic Burberry as well!


Blogger carrieitly said ... (9:01 PM) : 



Anonymous said ... (2:57 PM) : 

Absolutely love how he carries off the whole outfit... so stylish !



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:41 PM) : 

This outfit from hat to coat is a classic Austrian style, not Italian ...
