I was in Milan last week where I saw the most classy people,especially older people like this gentleman.I would prefer him more shaved but nevertheless he's very elegant


Blogger blue roses said ... (8:05 AM) : 

his mulberry scarf flair in the breast pocket completes this look for me. i love how simultaneously wild and dignified his beard, his eyes, are.

My most favourite thing about your photographs...people of all ages. I was just saying earlier on today, men look better with age. Is that a cape!? I LOVE it.

Gorgeous blend of fabric textures, including the beard.

I've been living in London for over a year now and loving it but every time I see your pictures from Milan I am reminded of the charm of my beautiful hometown...

Incredibly dashing! Love his scarf and that beard is astounding.


Blogger Mary Beth said ... (8:36 AM) : 

Why it's Dr. Andrew Weil in a hat on the streets of Milan. And I thought he spent all his time in Arizona....


Blogger H.K, Rahman said ... (8:40 AM) : 

The outfit is quite spectacular! The beard ... not so much.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:59 AM) : 

Love the cape maneuver and the rich colors in the pocket hanky and his true blue sportcoat (such fantastic felted texture--must be cashmere). He looks like a bearded Gregory Peck would have--had he lived until ten years beyond without aging another day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:22 AM) : 

I like how he put his cape back over his shoulder, like a jacket worn over the shoulders


Blogger Amy said ... (11:23 AM) : 

Oh good lord!!!!! That is a gorgeous photo-- the shock of white, the intensity and obscuring of the eyes by his hat, the nose just hit by the light. It's like modern day Titian painting. Beautiful.


Blogger Román Iglesias said ... (11:37 AM) : 

That´s a style lesson!


Blogger Contact said ... (11:43 AM) : 

wow! look at that beard!! he keeps it tamed well

That man is a wizard! Love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 AM) : 

cool! directly from the Risorgimento Italiano to the 150th Anniversary of the Italian Nation


Anonymous proletarian Great Gatsby said ... (11:59 AM) : 

Impressive and impressionistic!
A nineteenth-century painter?
A twentieth-century adventurer?
A XXI century dandy.


Blogger Copper Etiquette said ... (11:59 AM) : 

Very Chic Grandpa!


Blogger Katariina said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Absolutely stunning. While his outfit is immaculate, it is the man wearing it that makes it so interesting.
I think he can pull off the beard; perhaps his strong facial features prevent the beard from being overpowering.
I wish I could have a cup of coffee and a long conversation with him.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 PM) : 

great uncontrived stylish a way almost draconian in his seriousness

That is a very nice scarf.

Sometimes too much is just right. This would be one of those times.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 PM) : 

Just a wonderful photograph because it triggers my curiosity: I want to know his name, what his occupation is, where he's going, and where he's been.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 PM) : 

Did he see "Mr. Arkadin" too many times?


Blogger Sara said ... (1:37 PM) : 

This man is utterly dashing. I want to know his story!


Anonymous Lauren said ... (1:58 PM) : 

Absolutely fabulous! Love his style, but his facial expression is what makes this a truly great photo. It's the perfect counterpoint to the young woman below on via Luca Beltrami.

Tres beau. He looks like a painting, such depth in his eyes...and outfit.

Is that the great Demis Roussos? or the evil Ogre from the 80's French Christmas film "I believe in Santa Claus"?... I wonder if anyone would recognize either of those references.

The beard suits him like no other

Classic old man look, done brilliantly

this man is to die for... i wanna be an old lady and date him. he looks so enchanting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:00 PM) : 

He lives in my neighborhood in Milan and has always worn a cape and a hat like that. This is a wonderful portrait of a very stylish and very individual gentleman. His wife/partner is very stylish too, often in turbans and beautiful Indian fabrics. I have never spoken to him but he's always impressed me. So glad to see him here!!


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

Wow.... this is really amazing...
He looks like a person in the fellowship of the ring,the movie, 'The Lord of the Rings'.
He's ready to go on!?
Anyway, it looks great.

Anonymous Il Papa Innocento said ... (12:42 AM) : 

great photograph. It's Michelangelo inspired, maybe the statue of Moses, or the Sistine Chapel ceiling? subconsciously you were thinking Renaissance solidity and mass.


Blogger Tonni said ... (10:42 AM) : 

Well he is just fab! Is that a cape....gotta love any man that can pull off a cape!


Blogger McNeill said ... (3:04 PM) : 

I love the colors on this photo from the background to his actual clothes. That cape is so serious, I want one!


Blogger Ben Hatke said ... (11:27 PM) : 

If this man is not a wizard, then wizards may not in fact exist.

(also the way his sleeve is folding is very painterly).
