Is that Arthur Dent in the background?

Lol, I expect he was probably trying more for Noël Coward, but I doubt you're the only one to draw that comparison.

Those men in the background should be rounded up and removed from the picture, especially the one with the bow tie.

At least the geezer on the far right has nice legs.

Have to go back for a second look to inspect.  You might have something there, but as I want to remain neutral, I shall not comment Wink

Indeed, and just to prove I can be a fashionista as well, I'm going to predict the next must have style accessory for Pitti Uomo fall 2015.

Yum yum.  Thanks for posting those luscious pics Argus. 

Why does a man in a sharp suit arouse such an emotion in me.  So few men take a look in the mirror (or sniff themselves) before going out.  Maybe that is why I am not married.  Roll on the Chap Olympics - unless everyone decides to emulate Arthur Dent, that is.

Here's one in the eye for the Pitti Uomo dudes.  It's been done before, and better, and without resorting to (cringe!) shorts with suit jackets or clown colors.

Sigh.

Trouble is, the men of Pitti seem to have an almost anorexically warped view on fit. To them that suit probably looks like this...

I fully agree, Ms.Periscope. A lot of that hurts the eyes. Others make me think that it's not such a bad thing.

I agree that their jackets are too tight and some of them seem able to walk on the backs of their trouser legs.  Do you know I was walking behind a man, youngish, yesterday and he had worn down the fabric of his trouser bottoms so much that they were frayed and splayed out as he walked, but only where his heels pressed on them.  So ugly.

Oh wow.  That is very splendid.  I'd instant fall in love with a man if he dressed like that.  Any offers?

A little noisy for my tastes I must confess. Still it's interesting and I certainly don't hate it, but it probably looks better on him. (I think Mr Byrne's suit better fits my shape) Smiley

perhaps just the vest, under a white jacket.

I've always wanted a staid looking long double breasted bankers suit coat with bib overalls made from the same suit material. buttoned up, very banky, but open, cooterville! it would definitely have all those pockets too, not committed to the hammer loop on the thigh, it might show.

I just need to win the lottery, that's all. I bet if I actually bought lottery tickets, it would marginally increase my odds of actually winning!

Maybe in another ten years my metabolism will have slowed to the point where I'll be able to wear some of those clothes without collapsing of heatstroke…

I used to find a jacket and tie unbearable hot even in the (admittedly mild, British) winter. I can just about stand to wear a waistcoat and jacket over a shirt, nowadays, but they must be lightweight cloth.

I love the look of those woollen materials, but I think they'd be just too warm for me.

Yup, they're still at it, and I still think the clothes look a little too tight. Nevertheless, ideas some might find interesting perhaps.

Well, they look really good this year, with the tailored layering and the blended colors and patterns.  I like the boots that lace up to the ankle, and the inch of bright scarf showing between vest and coat.  But the glory seems to end between beautifully knotted silk tie and carefully angled hat-brim.  Not David Gandy, are they?  beards, shades, and cigarillos help a little, but only to occlude the self-consciousness and 'distressing want of chin' in many cases.  But then, there are lots of broad-shouldered, handsome men out there in muscle shirts with sagging armholes, basketball shorts falling down, and dirty track shoes, who need to take lessons from the aesthetic police of Italy!  

Thanks for the viewing!

The ship wrecked sailor look is big this year . "Donaldo  the Beachcomber"




With a crew of Russian submariners

I could well do without the shipwrecked sailor look.
I could well do with some of those boots though.
