Corduroy jackets are wonderful. He’s looking great! French way of living at its best. I want to go to Paris….

I dont believe I had ever seen jacket pockets like his, perhaps this is a hunting jacket? If anyone can enlighten me, I will appreciate it. He reminds me of the guy that does the vintage research for RL, who has been on your page before? I like the play with the textures of the corduroy vs. the red scarf. Jorge from WPB

March 6, 2009 at 11:09 am
Love the jacket!
March 6, 2009 at 11:11 am
yesssss this guy is so sick he can not only redeem cargo pants but make them look cool. be advised though, if you aren’t as awesome as him, don’t try at home
March 6, 2009 at 11:20 am
cool chap:) @jorge: the jacket style is called maremmana, it origins from tuscany/italy. Capalbio makes these for example…

How funny that you two were outed by le Libe…adorable. I’ve been a fan of both for a long time!

This man is my destiny! Such a glorious pimp factor..

Wow. Walt Whitman is alive and well in Paris. Handsome as all get out. I hope Mr. Cutey Pants ages this well.
March 6, 2009 at 11:48 am

March 6, 2009 at 11:58 am
Great earthy tones that compliment his age.

March 6, 2009 at 12:41 pm
what a great picture. this man probably doesn’t even consider himself to be a stylish person… i’m sure in the morning he just throws on whatever he feels like wearing. that’s what makes it so perfect tho… being stylish and not even realizing it
March 6, 2009 at 1:45 pm
March 6, 2009 at 1:53 pm
Love this picture. The way the outfit mixes perfectly with the buildings and sky – and the look he’s giving. Wow!
March 6, 2009 at 2:10 pm
It’s so difficult to find the right context for cargo pants nowadays.
March 6, 2009 at 2:37 pm
This guy’s been there and done that….whatever it is you can think of.
March 6, 2009 at 3:10 pm
great photo, love his look.
March 6, 2009 at 3:32 pm
Isn’t that John Talbot? Seriously. Is it? Because it sure looks like him.
March 6, 2009 at 3:50 pm
This man looks like some old pictures of old artists. One commenter wrote “Monet?” I think more like Pissarro.

MY GRANDPA CALLED AND SAID THIS IS HIS LONGTIME LOST FATHER!
March 6, 2009 at 6:53 pm
March 6, 2009 at 7:18 pm
Wow ! He looks so stylish. Do you ever stop and chat with some of the people you take photos of? I would love to know his story! Check out my photos from Osaka if you have a chance!
March 6, 2009 at 7:22 pm
So authentic. Great picture:)
March 6, 2009 at 7:31 pm
oh, he is wonderful. He looks a little like my boss, Lee the old-school cowboy, but without the horse.

March 6, 2009 at 11:32 pm
He makes me so homesick for Paris.OOOOOOlala.
March 6, 2009 at 11:49 pm
Perfect hat, and fantastic beard.
March 7, 2009 at 1:55 am
relax and the seine!!
March 7, 2009 at 3:01 am
Eyecatching old man.
March 7, 2009 at 3:21 am
Looks really like Philippe Noiret in his later days…
March 7, 2009 at 4:14 am
He has so much character. And a great jacket. Actually, is it a jacket or coat? Not so keen on the combats, but you can’t have everything
March 7, 2009 at 11:38 am
This is on Pont des Arts and not Rue de Rivoli as mentionned in the post.
March 7, 2009 at 11:53 am
I sport a corduroy jacket on a regular basis that is this same color, but the cut of the pockets isn’t nearly as cool or as utilitarian. I’m very interested in these maremmana jackets now.
March 7, 2009 at 4:28 pm
I would like to point out that Monsieur appears to be wearing cargo pants.
March 7, 2009 at 4:53 pm
DUDE, you found my dad!! I didn’t know he went to Paris.
March 7, 2009 at 5:18 pm
it’s portraits like this that keep me coming back to your website at least once a week.
What a fantastic looking gentleman.
March 8, 2009 at 12:38 am
So this is what santa claus is doing in March.
March 8, 2009 at 12:51 am
Great photo. Exactly the kind of photo makes this blog unique and worth reading.
March 8, 2009 at 8:02 am
My Grandma has a paintin on the wall… and this man looks exactly like the one on it… gives me chills to look at him…his clothin is average…but i love the attitude…go granpa
March 8, 2009 at 11:31 am
March 8, 2009 at 4:13 pm
Incredible. He looks like someone out of a Kerouac novel or something. Beautiful photograph!
March 8, 2009 at 6:50 pm
How wonderful! Age has taught him who he is! I love this! Thank you.

Isn’t it really the look he’s giving and the cigar in his mouth that make this outfit outstanding?
March 9, 2009 at 4:10 am
Very Ernest Hemingway! Great nonchalant pose and well worn in jacket. The cigar makes it.
March 9, 2009 at 5:04 am
This man is the bartender of a really old Parisian brasserie at Chatelet. He’s been there forever.
March 9, 2009 at 9:24 am
Yes I find this man very appealing and his look is attractive w/out pretention. I hope he has NOTHING to do w/ RL! please!, could we have some relief already?!
March 9, 2009 at 6:16 pm
beautiful colors. interesting man.
March 10, 2009 at 11:26 am
I would like to have his hat!looks very nice..
March 10, 2009 at 2:26 pm
When a cigar becomes a fashion item!
March 10, 2009 at 6:27 pm
Its Wanny di Philippo of course – the designer of cult florentine leather brand Il Bisonte! He’s a living, breathing fashion moment! J.
March 10, 2009 at 7:42 pm
Wanny – as charming as he is stylish and handsome!JD
March 10, 2009 at 7:54 pm
This picture is great, the colors…I loved it!
March 11, 2009 at 1:38 am
he looks so nice!!
March 11, 2009 at 1:02 pm
love the look… great light in the photo.
March 12, 2009 at 1:25 am
great character but im not impressed with the cargo pockets !
March 12, 2009 at 8:07 am
His name is Wanni di Fillipo – he runs the Florentine leather goods company il Bisonte. He is a champion alright, don’t you worry yourselves about that. He was in Paris for the Miepel I’ll bet.
March 12, 2009 at 9:50 am
perfect style….not a fan of the cargo pants but this is one exception
March 12, 2009 at 4:19 pm
Reminds me of a Norman Rockwell painting.
March 13, 2009 at 11:39 pm
He looks like Ernest Hemmingway.
March 15, 2009 at 3:57 am
so nice!!!! I love it ♥
December 19, 2012 at 9:38 pm
Great photo and choice of subject! Nice you included the “de” in rue de Rivoli, as you seldom do, Scott. I’m surprised Garance doesn’t comment on it. The location isn’t a “rue” at all, though, but a bridge over the Seine, perhaps Pont des Arts?
