There isn't much better looking than a man in a nicely tailored suit


Blogger Curators of Style said ... (12:18 PM) : 

This is a beautiful photo. The suit is so classic it looks like it could be modern day - minus the car.

They seem like characters in a movie-are they going to bump into each other as long lost friends or is someone waiting to bust a man having an affair w/his wife?

And here he is, a man standing between two worlds, in his linen suit.
He might as well be my babbo.
