Men in sharp suits are like women in lingerie — sexy. While most men do not wear matching suits on a daily basis (unless your job requires you to), there are ways to work around the suit and blazer, yet still look extremely dapper. For that, turn to our list of dandy Japanese gentlemen who seem to sharp all the time.

It’s even more evident during Pitti Uomo, one of menswear’s most stylish events of the year held in Florence. Other than the Italians, you will find that the Japanese contingent is the most well-dressed bunch; not just for their best bespoke outfits, but also for their boldness in experimenting with unusual prints, layers, and accessories.

In fact, we are so inspired by this Japanese dandyism that we’ve put together three style stars for you to steal their styles. These Japanese gentlemen are in no way your average street style influencer — they’re older men who have spent years refining their styles into one that’s distinguished and classic yet relevant. Naturally, it helps that these gentlemen have a background in fashion, like Shuhei Nishiguchi and Tomoyoshi Takada who are fashion buyers for their respective jobs.
