Nonchalantness trumps neo-dandyism

This gentleman may not be the neo-dandy one normally sees on the Tumblr #menswear channel, but his nonchalant look is the epitome of casual elegance.

Captured by the famed street photographer Tommy Ton during Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy, the gentleman gets everything — ticket pocket, natural shoulders, classic proportions, simple cotton pocket square — right.

What's exceptional about this look is his herringbone tweed sport jacket.

It is an incredibly versatile jacket that works with moleskin, corduroy and flannel. You can even wear it with denim jeans, suede chukka boots and a Barbour-style coat on top for the Saturday forenoon stop at the coffeehouse.
