Florence: The Sartorialist snaps a ruggedly dapper dude in a denim jacket. Photo via The Sartorialist.
Looks effortless, no? This could be Al Pacino for all we care (who, by the way, has great skin up close) and he could rock this denim jacket look, complete with a faux floral boutonniere and pocket square. I must admit, the denim jacket is a tricky piece, especially if tried by a novice Fashionisto.
The denim on this jacket works because the grain and the slight vertical abrasions give it a wool suiting appearance. It isn’t completely Dandy, but you do get the sense that this man knows how to dress summer-casual-elegant. The Sartorialist really gets around, to our delight, snapping this morsel from Florence, Italy.

DKNY has always had ad campaigns centered around the Big Apple. So this spring, DKNY jeans will be partnering with the street style photographer extraordinaire, Scott Schuman, aka The Sartorialist. They will be collaborating in creating the new spring/summer 2009 ad campaigns.
The line-up for faces to grace the ad campaigns are to be Chanel Iman ( I love this young model), Daisy Lowe (now global ‘it’ girl and love child of Pearl Lowe and Gavin Rossdale), Luc Worrell (a popular English model and boyfriend to Kelly Osbourne) and Sean Lennon (we all know who he is).
Go to www.dkny.com for a look at their line of jeans. For an all around great fitting jean try the Soho Jean Short 30. This stretch denim is in a dark rinse with a traditional 5 pocket style and contrast top stitching throughout. They are comfortable with a slight low rise and boot cut leg that flatters most figures across the board. At only $48, they are so worth it!
