    How many times has this guy been confused with John Waters?

    You be the judge.

    The clothes work with the exception of the square-toe shoes.
    The tie clasp is a nice touch of class.

    The socks do it for me. What a way to jazz up an otherwise bland outfit.

    p.s. I saw John Waters the other day here in SF in a local cafe. I almost squeeled as I always wished he was my Uncle… (we have the same last name)

    Great Shot!

    Wow I know this guy. He's in a really good rockabilly band, but I forget the name. He always looks this great. It's nice to see real people from the scene having their style celebrated on this site. I'd rather see this guy than fashion industry professionals who carry their stuff around in bags worth more than my car.

    I completely agree about the square toe comment. Otherwise this is wonderful.

    Love how little he is. His shoes and socks and mustache are what make it.

    The trousers are a perfect colour for summer and the light blue on the tie picks them up just right. The drape is fantastic and the fabric looks like a great weight – light and breezy for the season. More agreement on the socks. The tie bar is a great example of how just one accessory is all a man needs. The only thing I'll say by way of criticism is the shirt – avoid pockets at all cost in a more formal setting and slim shorter men should avoid them entirely, they tend to engulf the front of the shirt. Apart from that minor note, this ensemble is impeccable. Bravo!

    J'adore! Where is this and how can I get there? Everyone seems so well dressed, though I do agree with the square toed shoe comment.

    I am blissfully taken away by this and other the other shots in this series, I am so very tired of photos of 'it' outfits and the people who wear them. This image speaks volumes to me, it has depth and character.I want to know more about him and his life. It fills me with questions and I love this in an image. x

    Cool. I wish he was wearing a jacket, but it's nice as it is, in a retro americana way.

    Love the socks–and is that a pinned collar? Shoes are rather comically square.

    Squared toe brogues!! Now they're really squared aren't they?! And not just a bit. Must be 90 degrees each angle!
    Whatever happened to the pointy toe fad? The really pointy ones!! Not just a bit!

    OMG! That is the guy who I met because he was trapped on the subway car with me down there. Good choice of person to take, as was the older gentleman above.

    The only pictures that I was expecting, and haven't seen yet:

    was a gorgeous guy who had on a henley and blue trousers with his super cute daughter who was in a flapper (I'm assuming she was.

    this Asian guy who was in a divine cable knit.

    What an interesting man?

    I wonder what you may do if you ever publish your photographs. It will have to be over several volumes.

    i like risky socks, as long as they are chosen carefully

    I think this is Michael from the band S.I.T. & die Co. (http://www.sitanddieco.com/band.html ) who apparently maintains this awesome style all of the time.
