Great photo...I love his shirt layered underneath his turtleneck sweater with the thick socks. And the lapels! I better remember where my cashmere turtleneck sweaters are for next fall! ♥

Sambas? Awesome.

awwww how adorable is he! what a great photograph.


Blogger Navigo a Vista said ... (5:44 PM) : 

solo lui poteva vestirsi da cioccolatino, e sentirsi dire che ha stile.
Molto spesso ha faccia tosta, quello si. E nessuno discute più quello che indossa.


Blogger Navigo a Vista said ... (5:44 PM) : 

ah, e a me piace e sta simpatico. Vorrei precisarlo. Ma questo non inficia i miei limiti visivi


Blogger CINCHED AT THE WAIST said ... (5:55 PM) : 

he is one of the best dressed men, all of his suits are his grandfather's old suits, he just tailors them and mixes the pieces w current things.

stunning image of him,


Anonymous Sophie Mhabille said ... (5:57 PM) : 

These sneakers look so cool with this stric suit


Blogger Belle de Ville said ... (5:58 PM) : 

The epitome of Italian elegance!

That's a Jeep, so actually a semi Italian car, now..


Blogger Anna said ... (6:40 PM) : 

love his sneakers and suit paired together!


Blogger Richard said ... (6:41 PM) : 

He's hot!


Anonymous PICCOLO said ... (6:41 PM) : 

LAPO is inimitable :) he's the best...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

I'm impressed. Here in Italy, Lapo is not such an idol as he seems by these comments!
He's quite an eccentric, controversial and strange guy; and he's funny with his elegance, more than "the epitome of Italian" something! Anyway, nice colors, and great shot :-)



Blogger WILDFLOWER said ... (6:50 PM) : 

Now I dont so much like this colour but I like the two toned jacket with its lapels and how he roughs it all up with adidas.


Anonymous Matata said ... (6:51 PM) : 

Love the look. But a Jeep in Italy... Isn't that like a sin?!


Blogger Sabina said ... (6:56 PM) : 

I like this guy's confident smile.


Blogger Clemence and me said ... (7:06 PM) : 

He is so handsome;-) I love the picture with the bus behind, nice colors!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

LOVE the sambas


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

The shoes are either Adidas Samba or Gazelle, anybody know?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:42 PM) : 

By the way I love the look, and there is nothing very expensive about it. The dude is wearing his grandfathers suit (Caraceni?), a turtleneck, adidas sneakers. The guy look fantastic, but money didn't buty that look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:17 PM) : 

chic and fun. really endearing.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:22 PM) : 

Adidas Sambas--the only tennis shoe you can wear with a suit.


Blogger Bigio said ... (8:43 PM) : 

Great style. Love this picture!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:44 PM) : 

Cool! I love him :)


Anonymous Jess87 said ... (8:47 PM) : 

@ Danielle R.

It is part of the Fiat Group. Fiat owns the largest shares in Chrysler, which owns Jeep. He owns the entire car company for god's sake. He's trying to make a statement imo. Plus, he already has a Ferrari with a denim interior and a matte black Maserati. I see he also painted his jeep matte.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:47 PM) : 

BEYOND COOL!! He is looking great. Love the sneaks. This is like a male version of Phoebe Philo; elegant, cool, and modern.


Blogger Rachel said ... (8:47 PM) : 

Beautiful Lapo-one of my favorite men. :)


Anonymous LolóRey said ... (8:50 PM) : 

GREAT...! ! !

Even the train back there plays its part with colors...
What a great pciture.


Blogger Lee Oliveira said ... (8:54 PM) : 

Oh those giant lapels are something special.


Anonymous JK said ... (9:06 PM) : 

He looks good, but not his aesthetically-challenged vehicle.

Instead of sitting on it, he should have stood as far from it as possible. His father had far better taste in motorcars.


Blogger L said ... (9:14 PM) : 

My old boss (straight male) was obsessed with this guy...must say he's got great style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:33 PM) : 

Nice Jeep Grand Cherokee! Such a cool photo, you have the best job in the world!!!

like his confidence, too truffles&earthy look, specially with those thick socks, but his smile, bracelet and sunglasses are just bright together

And the smile and the hair and the turtleneck with the shirt underneath and his handkerchief and his whole, Cary Grant persona!

This guy looks comfortable and easy going. Reminds me somewhat of Fiat heir Lapo Elkann...


Anonymous lucia said ... (2:49 AM) : 

Lapo is so COOL! My favorite Italian dude ever. He is so elegant, so cool, so handsome, so sexy. I would marry him tomorrow.
Great outfit too, and great picture, nice colors.


Blogger CAYA said ... (2:56 AM) : 

Well, what is up with the adidas?


Blogger sartorialistanbul said ... (4:45 AM) : 

Sorry, I beg to differ. those sports just look scruffy! Love the rest of it tho'.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 AM) : 

Fiat bought chrisler... that's the reason why he is sitting on a jeep. Otherwis he was sitting on a fiat group car, i'm quite sure of it... anyway, he's very cool!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 AM) : 

Natural style here!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:20 AM) : 

Awful. Srue, you can pull of sneakers to a suit like that, but these look like he just came from futsal-practice. Not a fan of the lapels or the thick socks. Finally, I don't think what he's wearing work well together. Come on, turtleneck sweater underneath a 70's suit of almost the same color (?), big thick socks and sport shoes (?) and to top it off a shirt peaking out from underneath the turtleneck. The glasses are pretty nice though. He should however contemplate washing his hair every now and then.


Anonymous Tine said ... (5:26 AM) : 

He's so cool


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

Oh, no, please, he's such an idiot! You shouldn't give him this much visibility.

To be very specific, those are no Sambas, those are Adidas Speziale

Get off the Jeep and get in an Alfa Romeo.

This outfit is a bit clownesque. But the smile, the attitude, the confidence makes it cool. So yes I agree money can't buy these things.

"On The Car" ... Do I sense a new, running piece for The Sartorialist?

Interesting to see people artfully photographed on cars who arent girls wearing bikinis having a water fight!

Blogger mrpinkcat said ... (12:43 PM) : 

Love the look of the jacket and jumper, and always like to see someone dressing down a suit with a pair of trainers. But i just feel the need to poke my eyes out looking at the socks. aaaargh!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:59 PM) : 

What a great smile! Love the lapels too....but the smile is cuter.


Anonymous Elise said ... (1:11 PM) : 

Is anyone else not a fan of the turtleneck resurgence?


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:21 PM) : 

I like brown suits. I have had an obsession with them ever since reading Agatha Christie's The Man in the Brown Suit but I never managed to find one that I could wear (well I have a brown Lanvin suit but it has very thin blue stripes & even the brown is a mix of two browns really).

This one is nice - what are the lapels made of? Leather? Satin?

Very odd - too odd for the office but nice.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

Great photo. Love his smile, confidence, soft feel of his clothe - the whole look. Very interesting personality Smiled all the time I looked at him. Nice. Thank you.

is that a green bracelet on his wright wrist?

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:48 PM) : 

Only he can pull this look, he has been wearing adidas trainers for as long as I have known him. However the suit is not Caraceni, it's from his own collection Italia Independant and so are the glasses.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:48 AM) : 

The socks and sneakers are killing me. I am for a nice pair of kicks instead of dress shoes with this clothing but this seem so off.
Cool lapel.

I have the feeling that i'm the only one to do not like this look.

Ok, Lapo is dope, but... theses socks don't work with the pants (color + texture = bad combination)!

And please, make a bigger effort when you chose your sneakers...

That's not only a Jeep Grand Cherokee, its an SRT8. Its basically a muscle car/jeep. 420 Horsepower, 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, etc, etc. Fresh!

Scendi da quel carrarmato e dallo a me che lo uso per investirti assieme a Marchionne.
