KISHIDA Japanese "Men in Italy" photo blog - Page 6

post #76 of 87
I think that many people posting here are overly critical of the way these men dress... I think that a great deal of their outfits would be praised if they were posted in the 'what are you wearing today' thread.

What I don't get is why people are calling it a trend. I've done it ever since I've begun wearing coats for the simple reason that if I'm not wearing the gloves it's very easy to lose them if they're not put somewhere. I choose the breast pocket because it's more comfortable and doesn't break the line of the coat.

If you can't fit your gloves in, maybe your gloves are quite bulky. Or your coat pocket is quite small.

I think that someone should begin compiling a list of when the word 'sprezzatura' is used in a completely incorrect context.

I think it's a nice blog. I like the pictures. Got some ideas off it.

The whole layering thing. And I like wearing pants just perfect when they meet the shoe.

I don't wear trainers much although have a few ked-type ones - so no Hogan for me. And of course some of the shop guys are a bit over the top.

But that's Italy ))

I hate it when people match the color of their shoes "exactly" with their shirt.
That's how parents dress their children.

Heheh, no all I mean is that it's better to wear basic complimentary colors then exactly-matching colors, especially when it comes to shoes. PS - I'm sorry for reviving all those old threads. Been raping the search button heavily lately.

Hey, there are plenty of people here who grew up speaking English who make the same mistake. No worries, it's just one of my many pet peeves.

Overcoat too short, too fitted, Makes the guy look fey.

I think my wife booked this guy for our kids birthday party last summer. O'Hooley the Clown, comes in a variety of outfits, with my favourite being 'ghey leprechaun'.

You must be an american if you call that coat too fitted.

Coat seems to fit fine to me.
