Blue Babies

Photos taken at the recent men's fashion gatherings in Italy, namely, Pitti Uomo in Florence and fashion week in Milan---particularly those shot by Tommy Ton---have shown a strong resurgence of everybody's favorite boy-color: blue. It wouldn't take a professional trendspotter to simply notice the general preference for blue, in all its most handsomely royal and vibrant iterations. Here are a few of my picks from the recently-surfaced street style snaps:

In response to the apparent wave of blue on the streets of Italy, allow me to share with you my very recent purchase, which I am about to mar on the scorching, occasionally-pungent, mean streets of New York. I thought to breathe a whiff of prep into my summer with a pair of Tod's driving shoes in a slightly burnished periwinkle-blue:

I stubbornly cling to non-color for my clothing, and may not yet be ready to have all that blue next to my face. But as a gentle way of livening up a dark wardrobe for the warmer months, I think these blue shoes would be just right.

I really love the look of the guy in the tortoise shell glasses, polka dot shirt and jacket, and striped bow tie. He looks completely effortless.

The paisley patch on the elbow of the guy in the blue jacket is an unpredictable surprise. I really liked it.
