    Can you imagine what these guys would think if they knew that a bunch of strangers were Photoshopping the colors of their outfits and then re-posting them on a message board?

    It's just minor tweaking for my personal preferences. Both the older gentleman and Luca looked very nice to begin with. I especially like Luca's coat.

    That faffooffing is FAIL. Original was better, especially the purple scarf

    Purple is always FAIL.

    The boy with the thorn in his side,
    Behind the hatred there lies a murderous desire for love.

    I prefer to think they are a very deep bluish-red.

    More calling shots from the stands:

    I happen to hate purple myself. So I de-purpled Luca here by making his scarf a dark red and his gloves more blue-blue. I muted the blue in the tie and increased the contrast. The hat is darker. I'm supposing a lot of you guys will find this too match-matchy.


    Part of what makes this look successful (or not, depending on taste) is the vibrancy of the colors, which also plays into the startling intensity of his eyes (could be contacs?). By muting the colors, you are diminishing the wearer's intentions, imo.

    I still think this is digital color saturation. Almost looks like a colorized black-and-white.

    That's possible. I dislike digital photograps for this reason. Everything looks brightly coloured and everything looks in focus, in those. Too much so.

    Love the first 2 looks, posted the third as it's forum favourite Luca Rubinacci.


    Maybe I am just sexually frustrated, bitter, and angry, but he sort of looks like a douchebag in that photo.

    One needn't be a peacock, nor a runway model to appear well-dressed.

    Who said that was the case?

    in my opinion rubinacci looks rediculous. The latest post of the gentleman in the hat does not...
