On the Street.......Rue Saint Martin, Paris

Carlo Montanaro of Corriere della Sera

I think there is something wonderfully subversive about wearing a suit that fits so wonderfully and is so well-made that even as it begins to crumple you cannot bear to throw it out, it's like a sartorial version of faded jeans.

Actually this suit was made for his father and Carlo estimates it is about 35 years old.

Style and sentiment are a hard combination to beat.

How I Would Wear Thom Browne p.2

Chris Mitchell of Details magazine wears a Thom Browne suit the way ,I would guess, most of Thom's customers wear his suits.
I think I'm starting to look forward to this Brooks Brothers collaboration

How I Would Wear Thom Browne p.1

He looks really great!
- casual but still just enough design
- i really like the extra wide cuff on the more casual pants
- double-monk strap worn casually
- sleeves pushed not rolled
- shirt is open two buttons but still very closed at the neck
- his look is all Thom Browne, it is great to see Thom worn in a more casual way.
- love the smaller aviators

"Stocky" to "Powerful"

A well cut suit can help a man go from "stocky" to "powerful" - I can just hear him telling his tailor "I want a suit that make me look strong like bull"

Also notice his collar and the collar of our friend in the recent post of June 20th "Does It Get Much Better" - they both have a very soft spread collar which is a very Neapolitan styling detail.

This gentleman also has his collar artfully askew - believe me, if you tried to fix is collar he would be pretty pissed.

Some Guys...

..always have the knack for finding the best accessories
Sorry, I never thought an ankle bracelet could look so cool with a suit! I also think the ankle bracelet is a perfect way to f*up a pair of wingtips in a good way
this is the same guy that had the bandanna as a pocket square last summer.

Guess Who I Ran Into Today...

Her name is Albertina Marzotto, a journalist, and as you can see she is a woman for all seasons

Does It Get Much Better?

I took two shots because both are equally important.
- The jacket fits great - nice twist with the single breasted peak label.
- Cuff perfect, drop perfect
- Americans should not be afraid of linen suits, just bad quality linen suits. It was two in the afternoon by the time I took this shot and he looks no worse for wear.
- Love the dramatic spread of the shirt collar.

Perfect pant cuff and perfect slimness to the pant bottom

I was wearing brown suede loafers ,very much like his, today and they were so comfortable in the brutal Florence heat.

Next Summer I'm buying them in several colors.

Pitti Uomo Tomorrow

Tomorrow Pitti Uomo starts, then on to Milan and Paris for mens collections.
The last two days have been the quiet before the storm so if everything goes well I should have my first post up tomorrow by 4pm and will start posting twice a day (morning & evening) until early July.

I read that Gianfranco Ferre died.
He was one of the designers I always wanted to shoot because he had such great personal style.
I hope his company is able to keep his name and work alive for a long time to come.

Hello from Roma

So I just spent the late afternoon in Rome but unfortunately this is the best dressed guy I found. I expected some tourists but Rome is all tourists right now.

Tomorrow i will be in Florence for the beginning of Pitti Uomo , the big menswear trade show, which is like the Super Bowl of style for men.

When I was there in January I got some of my favorite shots during Pitti.

Coffee with Avner

So I'm making my way through the Marais toward the Left Bank for the Zucca fashion show when I come across this very elegant gentleman, Avner Gruzow, 83 years young.

I ask to take his photo and he agrees on one condition: I sit and have a coffee with him, and tell him about New York (although I knew I would really be the one asking the questions).

Now, I wanted to go to the Zucca show, but how do you pass up a chance to sit and hear a little about the life of a gentleman like this?

Guess what he did? Deep-sea diving! "I was mad for diving," he said, more than once.

The years have not been so kind to Avner's ablity to communicate and he had trouble remembering certain words, but from what I could make out, he spent some time living in the Middle East with the bedouins, he owned a camel, he and his wife own a country house in the South of France but currently live on the Left Bank. He travels every year to Antwerp to visit the area where he grew up.

Before we said good-bye, he gave me his address and promised that when I return to Paris he will show me photos of when he was young in the Middle East riding camels and of his diving adventures.

His handshake is still strong (stronger than I expected) so my guess is that although he is 83, we will still have quite a few more coffees together, hopefully soon.
