Italian Portraits

I realized that most of my posts lately have been a little feminine side so I thought I'd post a little something for my male readers.  Although, I do realize that the ladies will also enjoy it.  I don't want to be accused of being sexist again.  (It's always something.)  Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal mentioned that Tods has published a follow up to their first book Italian Touch called Italian Portraits.  It highlights some of the best dressed men in Italy and just as many well dressed interiors.  When I started looking for more photos, I noticed that my friend Blue Carreon just posted about the book on his site Style Intel so I'm borrowing some of his images. 

I can always spot an Italian man in New York because he's usually wearing colored pants and a luxurious cashmere sweater.  Unlike most American men who wear baggy over sized apparel, his clothes will be tailored to perfection and fit like a glove. He's usually pretty darn handsome too.  Now I'm excited to have a book full of them in Italian Portraits.  Ciao!

These pic's are wonderful! I especially like the set with three older gentlemen (up the stairs, sitting, down the stairs)! Classic! I DO love Italian men and style - this reminds me of the Masterpiece Mystery series on PBS done last year entitled 'Zen' - was about an Italian detective (Aurelio Zen), and the clothing, scenery and people in the show were just fabulous - not unlike these pic's!

Heather, there is just that certain something. Love these images, the men, the homes, the style!

Love the portraits, but the cafe au lait library that is completely contemporary with the exception of the antique Louis XV/XVI fireplace really is the essence of European style and is utterly timeless. Thanks. Mary

Is there such a thing as too chic? Too gorgeous? Too handsome? If so, this may be it!!!
