Menswear street-style inspiration

Leave it to the men of Italy to demonstrate impeccable masculine style without bringing the term metrosexual to your tongue. They look put together effortlessly and without any reference to or reliance on any tips or trends from the typical GQ magazine. Seriously, who would have thought a green babushka-like scarf and red pocket square (see below) would look so good together? It's interesting how the urban dictionary elaborates on its definition of the word "metrosexual":

 An American Metrosexual is like your average European male. In France or Italy, men can be manly and work on cars and know about art and fashion at the same time. They are cool with that and don't need some special name for the less "masculine" side.

Here are some sartorial snapshots from's street style section. The location of the photo story is noted to be Florence, Italy and all photos are, of course, captured by photographer Tommy Ton.
