I love this. Kind of retro, yet bohemian. I find the blues and purple to be an interesting complimentary mix with green as a neutral.
February 5, 2009 at 9:45 am
Congratulations! This is art, style, fashion, and perfect purple. This is so this season.

What a beard!

very dapper. love the pocket square, and the way his jacket looks so casual with the one button closure. Great glasses too.
February 5, 2009 at 9:55 am
the saturation of color is amazing in this photo. what a classy shade of green!
February 5, 2009 at 9:57 am
I like it. I don’t see many hunter green jackets like that around. Nice pocket square too.
I also like the hat (or maybe the hat isn’t a bit deal but he wears it well), although you can only see part of it.
I have struggled to find a hat for myself that is nicer than a baseball hat but isn’t part of a distinctive “look.” If I wore a fedora, it would attract a lot of attention, which is not my goal. I am just after a nice hat. It is not easy.
He seems amused to be photographed and is a good sport about it.
I could swear that this guy’s twin brother works at Blackbird in Seattle.
This guy is incredible! Like some kind of crazy Willy Wonka

I like the glasses
February 5, 2009 at 10:03 am
he looks a storybook character! its so endearing :) like a whimsical professor.
February 5, 2009 at 10:07 am
I love everything about this man!!! His pocket square brightened my morning.
Wow, it all works, right down to the beard. A break in the bicycling party? The chain at the top of the tie is perfect.
February 5, 2009 at 10:14 am
You’ve mentioned before that you enjoy coming up with great titles for your posts. “The Green Hornet” certainly ranks among them. Also love his mustache, tie, and pocket square.
February 5, 2009 at 10:19 am
so cuuuuuute!the smile gives a very fresh look
February 5, 2009 at 10:20 am
That hunter green is mean:)If you know what I meanAnyways, what kind of material is that?He has that go green look and I like it
Cheers for young men with neatly trimmed facial hair! It seems that few today appreciate the gravitas of a well-groomed beard.

Wow is he Irish?!

one word :WOW !
February 5, 2009 at 10:32 am

February 5, 2009 at 10:34 am
great color combination, not so great facial hair.
February 5, 2009 at 10:35 am
this man is awesome.
purple tie. and red beard.
February 5, 2009 at 10:37 am
he looks so quirky and happy.
February 5, 2009 at 10:41 am
Kudos to this fine gent for his elegant style and the finely groomed facial hair– such full and well sculpted handlebars do not appear overnight! Bravo! (and I love that you photographed him against that burgundy wall… a perfect complement to the emerald jacket!)
February 5, 2009 at 10:49 am
He look so whimsical! This photo has put me in the best mood…

Very “Rushmore” but with a big ‘stache! Love his big glasses.
February 5, 2009 at 11:07 am
I love, love people that dress almost as if they are in costume.
February 5, 2009 at 11:17 am
Where did the champagne glass come from??
But this guy loves his detail. If i had time i would put this much thought into an outfit
February 5, 2009 at 11:26 am
Perfect because of: beard, grin, tie, glasses, pocket square, woolly hat.
February 5, 2009 at 11:44 am
It’s always a pleasure to watch your pics and your models. i love him!
February 5, 2009 at 11:47 am
An absolutely bohemian man, i like him. Anyway i want his glasses.
February 5, 2009 at 11:51 am
what a palette! and the layering… love!
February 5, 2009 at 11:55 am
I loooove what he is wearing, those colors!!!
February 5, 2009 at 11:56 am
honestly, if i saw this man on the street, i would do a double take, and then laugh. this looks like he has tried way too hard.he does however look like he is having much more fun than the rest of us.
February 5, 2009 at 11:59 am
wonderful. From the semi-rimmed glasses, to the beard, to the layering. It is perfect.
February 5, 2009 at 12:02 pm
I love everything about this photo. Obviously, his moustache, glasses, jacket are extremely charming, but I love the colour radiating from inside the house (it must be a kitchen?), and how he is inexplicably holding a champagne flute!
February 5, 2009 at 12:06 pm
Wow, his look is amazing… all the way down to his slightly askew beanie!
February 5, 2009 at 12:09 pm
This man makes my day!
February 5, 2009 at 12:18 pm
oh…how i love it…in the evening…. i am amazed by that green.look at the detail coming out of his tie: a bigger picture of that pleasee.
February 5, 2009 at 12:33 pm
He’s a ‘stashtorialist extraordinaire!
February 5, 2009 at 12:39 pm
i love his whole enesemble!
February 5, 2009 at 12:44 pm
To me this is too much. Too much effort, too distorted.
Sui Generis - Me
February 5, 2009 at 12:46 pm
his pocket square…. it both disrupts from the whole look while simultaneously “blessing” it!i like how the champagne flute and his beanie contrast and confuse…in a good way!
February 5, 2009 at 12:53 pm
My ideal man! Style-wise anyhow…trop trop bien!
February 5, 2009 at 1:04 pm
He reminds me a lot of the guys at my husband’s private-school reunions, maybe it’s the glass.
I have to agree with David below that the hunter green is off-putting. Like the layers and the beard, though.
February 5, 2009 at 1:06 pm
Sigh… I wish I could grow facial hair (22 and I still get peach fuzz). Love the jacket and the colors work perfectly.
P.s. What’s around his neck?
February 5, 2009 at 1:09 pm
I always thought people in Paris walk around drinking champagne all day…now I have proof!
sorry, misread what David said below; I think he likes the hunter green.

February 5, 2009 at 1:27 pm
Oh man, he’s got a great look!
And look how happy he is…
February 5, 2009 at 1:31 pm
I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the outfit or all of it is thrift store finds.
Style knows no boundries…..
February 5, 2009 at 1:46 pm
February 5, 2009 at 2:15 pm
He is absolutely loving life! The suit is fantastic. The green alone is playful, but this gentleman added hints of fun with the tie and pocket square. Nice glasses. Love.
February 5, 2009 at 2:25 pm
This has to be one of my favourite photographs yet!It’s just fantastic, his hat isn’t expected with that jacket but the little details like the polka dot handkerchief and the necklace (don’t even get me started on the moustache) show you he’s just someone who is completely comfortable with his own style!Beautiful colours as well.

Very reactionary. Is this young chap by any chance an Irish revolutionary? Speaking of green, is he drinking Absinthe? This is Paris after all, so I would expect ‘Amour, Absinthe, Révolution’ to prevail.
February 5, 2009 at 2:56 pm
a throwback to the bohemian and vintage, but so cleanly! i’m very impressed. wish i knew him. love his tie accessory.
So, I think I’ve decided I’d like to marry him. What an outfit. And I like how the toque automatically makes the whole thing more casual.
February 5, 2009 at 3:08 pm
eeep this makes me so happy!
February 5, 2009 at 3:39 pm
he makes me happy…

HE SHOULDN’T DO THIS TO HIMSELF; THE BEARD CAN WAIT. HE SHOULD BE YOUTHFUL AND ENJOY HIS 20′S 0R 30′S (HOWEVER OLD HE IS, I’M SURE IT’S NO MORE THAN EARLY 30′S) HE CAN HAVE THIS BEARD WHEN HE’S 50. YOUTH FADES.
February 5, 2009 at 3:54 pm
This guy is pure comfort food! Please give him my digits….
February 5, 2009 at 4:00 pm
the wall is almost an accessory…or at least a great backdrop. his ‘environment’
February 5, 2009 at 4:05 pm
February 5, 2009 at 4:25 pm
You can´t miss that detail over his tie. That gives away the time put into the outfit. Love the spirit of this photograph!!!
February 5, 2009 at 4:39 pm
nice photo but not into the green suits
February 5, 2009 at 4:40 pm
Seems a little goofy style to me. I think I like everything separately but definitely not this combination.
February 5, 2009 at 4:43 pm
Unique!Everything from his glasses till the pocket square!This kind of person making your blog cool!
February 5, 2009 at 4:58 pm
Without the fluted glass, this photo would lose so much. heh heh.
February 5, 2009 at 5:17 pm
I love this shade of green
February 5, 2009 at 5:25 pm
Love the strong jewel colour of the blazor! Striking look.
Great Find!Fashbashsoundclash X
February 5, 2009 at 5:27 pm
I love everything about this picture…Seems like a funny man with a great eye for fashion!
February 5, 2009 at 5:35 pm
Are we still on trends? – like facial hair?? i think i’m going to be the lone dissenter here and say NO! it’s hideous, for one thing he looks far too young to sport a handlebar moustache and underneath all that fetter he has a perfectly lovely smile – why hide it? While i love his tie’s shade of purple any combination of purple and green makes me think of Wimbledon tennis ballboys.

This guys looks like he spent the afternoon drinking champagne and playing Dungeons and Dragons with the gang from his software development group.
February 5, 2009 at 6:00 pm
HA! is all I have to say. and that his look is very comical and he looks like he’s doing it on purpose. and I like him.
February 5, 2009 at 6:01 pm
Now those are some mad grooming skilz!
I would have expected a bow tie.
At which point I’d never play poker with him.
February 5, 2009 at 6:05 pm
he looks great! i absolutely love him. the color combination is excellent. the glass and the hat are fantastic touches to an already perfect look.

February 5, 2009 at 7:07 pm
Almost entirely marvellous…I respect the facial hair but I don’t like it, so unsexy. The rest is wonderful. Where does one buy beautiful champagne glasses like that? I’d think he was at an art opening but I never attended one with glassware that nice.
February 5, 2009 at 7:31 pm
his facial hair!wow!
February 5, 2009 at 7:53 pm
iiiiiiiii love him, love everything about this guy, awesome style.

February 5, 2009 at 9:58 pm
I haven’t read through the comments but if anyone hasn’t said already:
His lovely self and the beautiful red-haired girl with the green velvet blazer should procreate ASAP! They would look amazing in a photo together with the outfits they’re wearing. Beautiful colours, I love this.
February 5, 2009 at 9:59 pm
i think beard and jacket colors are very good match.the jacket image is neat but his whole image is cute and mischivous.
February 5, 2009 at 10:07 pm
I love the blue and yellow scarf. Perfect with the jacket. The jacket looks like wool to me.
February 5, 2009 at 11:24 pm
this guy is like a drawing come to life! fantastic!
February 5, 2009 at 11:26 pm
Outfit looks great. That is one hell of a beard!
February 5, 2009 at 11:29 pm

February 5, 2009 at 11:30 pm
OH. MY. GOSH. I would marry this man.
February 5, 2009 at 11:58 pm
I love everything about this outfit! And I especially love his facial hair!
February 6, 2009 at 12:24 am
that beard ( and pocket square ) is absolutely fantastic.
February 6, 2009 at 12:29 am
This scares me a tiny bit.But then again, all arresting images lean a bit toward the eccentric.Now if only he had a twin……then we’re in the Diane Arbus zone.
February 6, 2009 at 1:46 am
Wow! Jealous of the beard… and everything else.
L to the Aura
February 6, 2009 at 3:21 am
I suppose I should comment on his clothing choice,but I’m too distracted by that moustache and beard. Sorry.
February 6, 2009 at 3:26 am
he should be my boyfriend!
February 6, 2009 at 4:03 am
I like his hole ensemble. But what is the best: Where did you find the wall behind him?
Thanks for this amacing shot and the all-day-inspiration you are giving!
February 6, 2009 at 4:40 am
in The Bay Area, so many take a run at this look but very few succeed. This young man has not made a mockery out of himself in fact, he has shown himself to be a man of style and taste not another slap and dash trend following. He looks like he’s having fun whatever event he’s at which makes most everyone look foxy.
February 6, 2009 at 5:51 am
very “danny boy”………. hometown colors, and good frame with this brick wall just behind..Li like the knitted hat and the easy and “non-chalant” way he is holding the glass. Very classy!

i love his print silk pocket square! i think women should start accessorizing their blazer pockets too. why let guys have all the fun??
February 6, 2009 at 9:13 am
I seem to be one of the few here who don't admire the beard & curled mustache. (This look reminds me of things that make me cringe & fill me with a certain sadness–namely, older bachelors & yacht captains where I live who purposely let themselves go, their hair & mustaches growing long & wiry…)However, I really do like his clothing; it's so creative/artistic/poetic & he looks beautiful in that green.

He has the most funny but adorable beard I have ever seen. The green jacket is absolutely a classic retro type but with the other tings it makes a bit of bohemian look. I like the bohemian retro style, It’s so, so..comfortable and different. Love the details, as his purple tie and the yellow and blue scarf in the top pocket. His glasses are grandfather cool and the hat is the topping on the fashionable cake! If I were a guy, I would have his style.
February 6, 2009 at 10:04 am
Beautiful shot, great colors, love his style, and his joie de vivre is infectious.

I met this guy last week in the subway in Paris and I was SURE the sartorialist would have liked his look. This photo is the proof !
February 6, 2009 at 2:55 pm
First off, I am really curious to see the rest of his tie. Second, I noticed a few comments saying it looks like too much effort, trying too hard. I can see that may be true of his beard and mustache, but the overall outfit is fairly classic. Third, I've never met a D&D player or software developer who dresses anywhere near this caliber.
February 6, 2009 at 3:02 pm
I wish I had the guts to grow that kind of facial hair.
February 6, 2009 at 3:07 pm
I love decent facial hair. Love. It. Beard-rash is totally worth it when your other half looks this good.
February 6, 2009 at 4:55 pm
and they say leprechauns aren’t real…nonsense.
February 6, 2009 at 5:32 pm
the beard makes it. absolutely.
thank you for reinforcing my new-found infatuation with great facial hair.
February 6, 2009 at 6:04 pm
Ha, this is a great frind of mine, we attended the same school in London. He has always been ahead of the fashion industry! Our generation is the most creative at present. He works for Lanvin and has a great eye for detail.
Enough said, yes he is British!

oh, I love EVERYTHING about this!From the emerald blazer to the purple brick to the beard.
February 7, 2009 at 2:43 pm
i REALLY want to be his friend.

February 10, 2009 at 9:02 pm
The gray cap throws the rich symmetry off. Intentionally? Too bad. I get that the entire presentation needs some deflection. I don’t know what, but I’m sure there’s something better…
February 10, 2009 at 10:21 pm
I desperately want to meet this guy. love him.
February 11, 2009 at 6:35 pm
is he single? if so, get his details for me…wow!
February 12, 2009 at 3:26 am
he looks like an excellent drinking buddy.
February 17, 2009 at 2:39 am
I’ve been looking for glasses just like these. I don’t know how to search for them not knowing what they are called or the brand. Could someone be of some assistance, please?
Besides all of that, he’s the only person you’ve photographed that I’d really love to meet. So charming! Reminds me of all of my favourite friends put together.
