On the Street....Beppe, Milan

I think if I ever did a men's style guide, I would have to call it "What Would Beppe Do?"

There's nothing better than great old man style. Wonderful portrait.

Beppe is aware of his charm!
Go Beppe, and teach to all those trivial men!


Blogger Marissa said ... (10:41 AM) : 

Why, isn't he dapper?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:41 AM) : 

Ah well, I like the tie and the use of the pin, but not sure about the lapels on that jacket.


Anonymous Mae Lu said ... (10:41 AM) : 

I love seeing gentlemen that stay dapper and classic into old age.

Mae Lu, thereafterish.


Anonymous Ijeoma said ... (10:52 AM) : 

True essence of the phrase "distinguished gentleman".

Got a lil emotional there seeing this picture. Fashion has got NO age limit !!!

WWBD! He's perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:20 AM) : 

one of our old favorites....with his signature safety pin as a tie clip detail always great personal style.


Anonymous besidesthesea said ... (11:24 AM) : 

Old school style.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:30 AM) : 

You can never over-enthuse the power of a sharp suit. Imagine Beppe in some saggy old cords and thermofleece jumper... not so lovely. But in this slick attire he is a silver fox if ever there was one. X


Blogger Archie said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Beppe's blue steel look takes no prisoners


Blogger anthony said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Highly impressive!


Blogger Natasha Gregson said ... (11:47 AM) : 

So dapper. Men should wear suits more :) !! xx

Beppe Modenese, President of the Italian Chamber of Fashion.


Blogger AFJ said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Why do italien men favour blue soooo much?


Blogger Nedda Ebo said ... (12:21 PM) : 

Stylish old man. Too bad his tie is a little ruffled up, culd use some fixing lol!

Anonymous Laurent said ... (12:24 PM) : 

Q.BELLO! That's a suit! Nailhead pattern? tie that is fantastic. The continuing blue period of Sart. is causing me to intensify my search for a blue pin/chalk stripe suit. Wish we could see the whole suit/shoes. Miraviglioso.


Anonymous Gepke said ... (12:41 PM) : 

Beppe means ´grandma´ in Frisian (language spoken in the north of Holland). Funny :)


Blogger culturcated said ... (12:46 PM) : 

nofashion-fashion. classic rules!


Anonymous John Wesley said ... (12:49 PM) : 

Beautiful dressing. Appears to be effortless... As natural and comfortable as a second skin. Love the bumped out tie.

Scott-- Start working on your men's style guide. (I'm already standing in line.)

Elegant and stunning.

I do not think his tie is just ruffled up. I think he fixed it that way to let the plain matching color part emerge from under the pattern.


Blogger Nolita said ... (1:57 PM) : 

Yeah, great idea, as John Wesley said, a blog only featuring stylish men, I would love it!

Blogger sam ezra said ... (1:58 PM) : 

gotta love a well put together outfit!


Blogger luciano said ... (2:03 PM) : 

No matter the age the Italians make it look effortless. So classic without forcing anything. Its remarkable that their attire is the same attire a 25 year old gentlemen would be wearing. A suit with beautiful material and exquisite tailoring along with a touch of independent style. Simply beautiful.


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

Great tie.


Anonymous G said ... (2:18 PM) : 

Love it!

this guy means business!


Anonymous IS THIS IT? models review said ... (2:24 PM) : 

haha I absolutely agree - ASK BEPPE! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

i can't believe i never thought to crease the tie with a pin to rise like that. that's genius. or perhaps i haven't noticed it done before. now that's attention to detail that he created. is that a safety pin? if so, that's pretty awesome and dare i say, a bit of punk rock aesthetic


Blogger 82Brute said ... (3:09 PM) : 

Impeccable. The pop of red in the pocket energizes the palette. He's a force.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:44 PM) : 

Well Beppe nailed it !

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:01 PM) : 

It is a safety pin(?!) he has on?
if yes,
well done Zio Beppe!


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

I hadn't noticed the safety pin, but I think it's genius. The suit is impeccable, maybe that's what makes it great. I love a blue shirt.

Blogger Kathleen said ... (7:17 PM) : 

Great suit, great accessories, great tie, the works. Beppe is always dressed perfectly. Hope he is wearing Tropical weight here, its still so very hot in Italy! I love the rich color blue of his shirt. Lovely! The Italians have a "I don't give a d - - n whether it's cooled down or not, I'm dressing for Fall". Love this attitude.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 PM) : 

Elegance has no age but he looks like a man whose profession has defined his style,let me guess would he be a banker?


Blogger wiljello said ... (7:18 PM) : 

The Grand Master of style!


Blogger vintage1944 said ... (7:21 PM) : 

Beppe is trim and elegant.He wears his years with style and grace.And yes please,write a book on style for men and I will personally sell it where I live.Help is needed here.


Anonymous Helen said ... (7:44 PM) : 

There is something very beguiling about a well dressed older gentlemen.


Blogger Louise said ... (8:11 PM) : 

Fabulous portrait! I imagine he'd dress impeccably on a Sunday morning. He's got a look of Alan Arkin, don't you think?


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

Beppe, you're the man.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:02 PM) : 

Classy,charming and flawless...


Anonymous loolah said ... (2:00 AM) : 

So many clothing choices look good but don't make me pause. A man who dresses like so immaculately and then adds a safety pin - that intrigues me and makes me want to know more about who he is. Especially with a stare like that. May men like Beppe be around in a few years when I need them.


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

Oh please, Scott, do a men's style guide!!!

Very distinguished, charismatic, style !!!!!!!


Anonymous forc. said ... (5:19 AM) : 

Nice photo and great yet subtle style. Love how the tie vorresponds to the freckled shiny head.
But what's going on with the shoulders? Is the seam rolled back or something? Unusual cut.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:16 AM) : 

Here is an alternative to sprezzatura: elegance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:59 AM) : 

Bravo Beppe! You look great!
This man is elegante and understated.
Remember the some days ago post with the guy in Florence wiht a gold Rolex, two Gold rings and a Vertu mobile phone?
That guy should look at this gentleman and learn something about being elegant and don't be flashy.


Blogger es trenc hombre said ... (7:17 AM) : 

yes, please, a men's style guide it would be a great idea. I have a little men's boutique i Tenerife, (Canary Island) and although we buy and go Pitti your blog is a continous inspiration for me when I expose the clothes. thank you very muchh.

Beppe is a true man of style and gentility, with impeccible manners. I truly enjoyed working with him at Tiffany & Co. His trademark red socks are a fantastic symbol of his verve against the grain.


Blogger J.Ro said ... (12:00 AM) : 

This guy puts Gordon Gekko to shame!


Blogger bojdof said ... (6:04 AM) : 

I love the comment under the photo, the man is absolutely stunning! That's how I want to look like in my 60s : )

Stunning! Why is it that mean manage to age so much better than women! It is so UNFAIR!


Anonymous ronan the librarian said ... (3:24 AM) : 

is it a safety pin or an antique tie pin? Don't they wreck the silk? Still it would be worth it as it gives the tie some (as you would say) "sprezzatura"! Why are we so afraid of ties these days? I predict a big come-back.
