Sprezzatura, to the best of my understanding, is the quality of style characterized by a studied spontenaity of dress, and an insouciant and idiosyncratic attitude of accessorization. If one does it well, one is supposed to look thrown together, in some respects, but thrown together perfectly.

Maintaining an insouciant attitude in one's dress the day after an 18-inch blizzard does take some fortitude, and my ideas for today's attire have been molded by a desire to wear only things soon destined for the dry cleaners, so this may not be the perfect example of "sprezzatura", but it is spontaneous enough I think, at least for the purposes of this contest.

As for photography, "sprezzatura" is all about flash, and after looking at yesterday's non-flash photos, I think that I prefer flash for documentary purposes. When I can figure out how to make non-flash photos without murkiness, I will revert to non-flash.

Allora!

Good, lord, what now?



I am not fucking late.....there is no such thing as late.....and you are cramping my steez.



Ok, better make sure the laces are just right..never know.....



Oh, so I have to wait for you? Steezus Christ!



Oh, my closeup!!!




I realized when I got to work that my camera settings were blown. So, instead of getting those awesome super-saturated shots, I got these half-assed medium res shots.

Oh, well. Have a good one.........I can't wait to see the turnout today. This is a cool challenge!

I had to leave the house today, so my Sprezz, is liking individual components and putting them together.











That's all folks!!

"Nah, I'm good. Gotta open it up and make sure they see my TWO flapped shirt pockets. Lotsa sprezz."

How many individual items of sprezz can you find in my outfit? Bonus points if you can name the SF originator of each stolen idea. Additional bonus points if you can get him to cop to it.



Don't laugh. ^ I paid $1000 dollars for that tie clip.



Yes, those are tweed cargo pants. ^ Read 'em and weep, boys.



^ People who flip their watches around the other way are just trying way too hard in my opinion. I wear mine like a normal person.



I'm eager for Velcro dress shoes to hit the market. In the meantime, who can be bothered?

Now I'm going to read and enjoy your approaches, gentlemen.

Bah I had to work past sunset so didn't get a chance to make an entry. Great stuff men!
post #3 of 74
Opened page and immediately liked yfyf's submission. Scrolled down, scrolled down, scrolled down and kept thinking yfyf proposed this just because he knew he would win it.

Then hit Orgetorix. BAM!

My vote goes to yfyf, Orgetorix, Parker, and UC. Four way tie because they're all too good.

NOBD, Parker, UC:

Didn't Nii enter? I remember liking his getup but maybe I misremembered.
post #6 of 74
best challenge so far. this was fucking hilarious.
post #7 of 74
nobd crushed everyone as far as actually looking good goes. A couple others had something decent. Enjoyed the rest.

ps kent wang I thought you were wearing that fox fur hat ironically the first few times but since you KEEP wearing it, I'm assuming you think it looks good and doesn't make you look horribly ridiculous. Suggest you donate it to your wife as it looks hilarious every single time you wear it and I'm guessing you aren't going for that kind of look!

I think PTWilliams's pants would've gone over perfectly at Pitti.
post #9 of 74
To me, Parker nailed the aging Pitti attendee perfectly, and NOBD fitted the criteria well whilst looking pretty good. As for the others, there were 1 or 2 like UC that while not competition winners, did well considering this is MC doing Pitti, but most were way off the mark, probably due to the strong difference in aesthetic and style between MCers and Pitti attendees. Was going to post pics myself, but worked gigs from 6am-midnight over the last 2 days; had the time to make posts and check facebook when work was calm, but not enough for shots

Wait... I'm eligible? I thought I wasn't eligible, I just threw a photo up because I had one handy. If I knew I was eligible I would have worn something else!

good shot.

he didn't add any gimmicks, despite the felt flower, which is iirc sf approved.

sprezz cannot be achieved by copying some blog pictures. you have it or don't, a bit like charisma. got me now?

Kinda surprised no one went for the sock pocket square.
