Vintage Model

Vintage being a commonly used euphemism for "old" in the fashion world...

The Sartorialist's Florence subject is also the new lookbook model for Turkish designer Umit Benan's awesome fall winter collection recently shown at Pitti Uomo.

Umit Benan:

"Surfaces that appear to be rough, giving a hint of street wear, actually shield the soft underside of a duffel coat or a cashmere and wool cardigan. Showing the pieces mixed casually with jeans or a washed cotton short, or more formally with dressy clothes, Benan has captured, in humble proportions and thoughtful mixes, the spirit of the post-show-off era."
