On the Street....Back in Milano

This week I'm in Milano, and it's already full-on summer here.

When I saw Luca for just a moment today, I was kinda surprised to see him in such a subdued color palette.

Even without his usual bold prints and dramatic pattern combination, Luca still looks great. The understated nature of his look actually helps to highlight the perfection of the Rubinacci cut and tailoring, details which are sometimes upstaged by Luca's flair for color and pattern.

love the multiple bracelets in random colors!!!


Blogger Caroline, No. said ... (4:02 PM) : 

So, it's strange. Luca still hasn't called to offer his hand in marriage, yet. Let him know I'm ready and waiting, yeah?


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:02 PM) : 

What an amazing palette of Blues!! He looks fantastic!


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

I like the mystery of a man's suit,giving him a reserved-slightly-restrained look and the bracelets add to the interesting complexity.

Classic with personality (tie and bracelets).

I love a tailored suit. Nothing says style like a good fit.

His look is indeed less bold than usual, but it still looks great. I love how he's always wearing those colourful bracelets, I'd love to see a close-up of them some time :)

His suit together with his bracelets are an interesting and refreshing mixmatch.

Fantastic tailoring I love the juxtaposition of the sharp suit and the jazzy wrist accessories!

I really like the bracelets.
Looks nice.

Despite the fact that I am a woman Luca Rubinacci is one of my number one sources of inspiration.

He inspires me to embrace colour instead of being slightly afraid of it as I was in the past.

It is funny to see him dressed this way, because this is the way I do it. Stripes, jewelry everything with details (taking little baby steps over here!).

So thank you very much for posting Scott. It shows that I am on the right track and keeps me motivated. Just like your blog always does.

Have a nice day.

Blogger Old Housecoat said ... (4:46 PM) : 

I am sending this picture directly to my husband. This is how a man with a slender build should look in his suit at all times.
No matter how much I mention it and no matter how many examples I show him, he insists on wearing his suits just a little too big. I don't know what to do - it makes me want to scream!
(Plus I believe it reflects poorly on me as his wife.)
Thanks again for yet another example of how it can be done right. Thank you for helping me try to help him!

P.S.- Where are his cuffs? Do Italian men really wear short sleeve shirts? Say it ain't so!


Blogger Michael Q. said ... (4:48 PM) : 

Is he wearing a short sleeve shirt? Where are his cuffs?

It's interesting to see his relatively "wide" lapels when skinny ones are so in right now.


Anonymous Interior Monkey said ... (4:49 PM) : 

Love the bracelets- they add a great pop of color making the outfit more chic and more fun.


Blogger Ninjagaiden78 said ... (4:54 PM) : 

The cut of that suit is incredible. Luca is looking great.


Blogger Fazal deen said ... (4:59 PM) : 

The bracelets & the knot of the tie highlight each other

beautiful suit, and I think the bracelets just add personality. beautiful.


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (5:02 PM) : 

Love the mix of boho string bracelets with such an impeccable suit.


Blogger EML said ... (5:09 PM) : 

the tailoring certainly does look good but what really strikes me about his look is the simplicity and formality of the suit in contrast with those bracelets.


Blogger agnes szucs said ... (5:12 PM) : 

Now, this looks fantastic!
I didn't like the previous Milanese look that much. But this is what I would expect from an Italian guy... Very elengant, but still casual and cool in a way... look at those small beaded bracelets... love them!


Blogger The Vegaran said ... (5:14 PM) : 

He looks so lovely, very dapper. I really like how he is wearing those beaded bracelets (I think), they actually look perfect with the suit.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (5:16 PM) : 

Oh, wow. Love this. Gentlemanly elegance. The blue is beautiful. I love how simple and (almost) unadorned this is.


Blogger amy said ... (5:19 PM) : 

I love a nice blue suit. The 80s gave them such a bad reputation, but this is full-on Cary Grant.

There is a certain casual elegance of the knitted tie that I love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:22 PM) :

Blogger teresa said ... (5:28 PM) : 

of i do not know him personally, but i think his flair shines through in his accessories. Those bracelets tell a completely different story than the suit (which is a killer cut).


Blogger I V E S T I T I ! said ... (5:34 PM) : 

Those armbands with that perfect suit is such a good match...


Blogger Alicja said ... (5:39 PM) : 

Lovely deep blue color of his jacket. I love it! Details as bracelet and tie show his individual style.


Blogger Taylor said ... (5:44 PM) : 

He looks wonderful, I think the bracelets are my favorite part. Such a beachy, even tribal look to complement a totally professional one.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (5:53 PM) : 

Obviously he knows lots more about fashion than I do, but I dont see shirt sleeves anywhere near the cuffs of his jacket, short sleeves perhaps? Could it be? We are looking up his right arm and even there we can't see the sleeve...


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Genius combination - all these blues together with the cravat and the bangles. Molto elegante!


Blogger Bell said ... (6:07 PM) : 

If Luca is not dressed in an impeccable suit, I will not go. His tailoring is wonderful and is very handsome and elegant

The blue is that of the sky just after the sun has set.

I like his personal addition to the ensemble with his bracelets.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 PM) : 

Beautiful tie!!!!
The cut of that jacket is quite boxy and actually, a little outdated, IMHO. I´d much rather wear less padding that follows the natural contour of one´s shoulders and slimmer sleeves for comfort and vibrant masculinity.


Blogger KohCo said ... (9:52 PM) : 

The suit is impeccably cut and just perfect
But what really makes this outfit special for me is the slightly unexpected bohemian touch of the bracelets.


PS. I should also say - LOVED the post on dandy gentlemans store in Belgium! I'd totally visit!

I like the fact that the last two post show men with classically tailored coats, and not overly tailored tight suits.

A horizontally striped tie!! Now, that's unique! You always see vertical, but never horizontal. I love that the look is subtle and doesn't detract from his beautiful, beautiful face.

He does look very confident on his outfit and I love the touch of "many colors" on the bracelets as well.

Luca always looks hot, but what's with the colored bracelets? They actually work for him because he's a hot Italian man, but if I saw a guy here wearing them, I probably wouldn't have the same opinion...

Searching through all your photos of him, he does favor strong shoulders and wide lapels. They look good on him. They look good on most men, current fashion notwithstanding. That's all that matters.


Anonymous princess glee said ... (4:34 PM) : 

It's ok to count me as one of the many Luca admirers. Short sleeves would be very practical under a jacket in warm weather wouldn't it? I think it's the perfect solution. Maybe when the jacket comes off so does the tie?

Subtlety is a great asset that really makes an outfit stand out, if the looks is put together well. Shirt cuffs? Makes me wonder if his sleeves are too short. All in all, this is the utmost show of respect to other people to take such pride in yourself.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:17 AM) : 

How many men love the bracelets? I know I don't.

Perhaps more substantial bracelets would work but the ones he has on look plastic and cheap, and doesn't quite work to give the highly tailored suiting a casual air.


Anonymous Mick said ... (6:51 PM) : 

mmmmmmm, it is a bit rock v dapper, he has to work in fashion, a shop in milan perhaps? not sure if most bosses would take to his look in your normal business type environment, but wouldn't it be great if they did!

again, in general, what i always see on the sartorialist is proud, stong and stylish men from all around the world. why is it that for most part, irish men are brutal when it comes to style. i really should have been born italian, french, londonish, new yorkish!

as always, such a buzz to pop in now and again and see what the rest of world are up too. thank you mr sartorialist for keeping this so alive!



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

does anyone know who makes the tie??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:16 AM) : 

As a guy, I never would have thought women would love the bracelet look so much. I shy away from jewelry myself... perhaps that's a bad thing.

I think what works here is his skin tone, the color of his facial hair, and his eyes. They work great with the colors in the tie and of the shirt.

I found myself telling my girlfriend I can't wait until I'm done losing my hair. I currently shave it but once it's all gone up top, I may go with this look.

This conservative color choice of Luca's is only defied perfectly by his "friendship bracelets" ;) the colorful wrist twist he has used to convey approachability and individual relaxed style. The gold ribbon detailing of his tie is a good color on him, he looks clean and crisp!

x bird.


Blogger bien venido a mi sitio web said ... (7:12 PM) : 

The tie is genius and the bracelets are a perfect complement. A suit with a stack of bracelets is so rarely done by men, but this shows how it can work.


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

OMG, Luca is so delicious. I am at a point where I really appreciate conservative style and the Italians are the best. He looks yummy and the bracelets are the youthful accessory. I like this better than the post later where he is the shorts with jacket buttoned, one button, over it. I could see shorts, just not those.


Blogger Tereneh Idia said ... (9:06 AM) : 

The colors are subdued but no less dramatic to me. The blue is stunning and I absolutely love the tie against the shirt the strips of both - elegant. The cut of the jacket as well. I am not sure why Sarto but every time you post a photo of Signore Luca I just want to hug him.

Luca looks as dapper as always.

First let me comment on some earlier posts: Someone mentioned maybe he's wearing a short sleeved shirt; I think he just left the cuffs undone so they have peeled back. Classic "sprezzatura" touch. And then someone said "obviously he knows more about fashion than I do". I'd say it's style rather than fashion. The guy has it in his blood. 4th generation of the Rubinacci Tailoring house I believe.

But then some critique. The bracelets feel a bit old. When people in H&M and Zara suits starts wearing them it's time to switch to something new. Ok, that's fashion... I contradict myself.


Blogger Zbarsky said ... (4:57 AM) :

given the burst of color at the knot of the tie, it appears that he's chosen to wear his tie "backwards." truly fascinating.
