What a polished look, love these photos

I do like this unique look. He wears it well with classy written all over it.
Exquisite, the color palette and the details in the first picture are very refined. Inspiring, even for women.
February 14, 2011 at 4:44 pm
I like the detail on the first coat!
That's Not My Age
February 14, 2011 at 4:45 pm
He's got great style – and a fine selection of overcoats!
February 14, 2011 at 4:46 pm
Actually he is ultra chic mostly because he's extremely handsome. People like him look great wearing almost everything.

Sartorialist, I just read your biography and it amazed me – you are such an inspiration to me, I have so much respect for you and look foward to your blog everyday.
February 14, 2011 at 6:47 pm
This echoes the earlier conversation about sleeve length. I like a shorter sleeve length on a coat – male or female. But then, the folded-over caftan sleeve doesn't seem right to me. And it starts to billow out under the coat sleeve.
This is also common when the under garment is a knit and the outer garment is a woven – the shorter outer garment then exposes too much of the underlying sleeve and it looks awkward.
He is avoiding it in these pix – but just barely. He is so pulled-together looking that it doesn't matter for the photos. He just looks great.
How do others feel about this?
February 14, 2011 at 6:55 pm
I really like the protruding sleeves in the first photo.
February 14, 2011 at 7:00 pm
Thanks for the arrow cupid! I love him!
February 14, 2011 at 7:02 pm
The only thing he's missing is a cigar. Thank you for your continual commitment to beauty.
Happy Valentine's Day!-Heather

i love his coats totally :D
Check out my florence Street fashion project on my blog!!!
February 14, 2011 at 7:08 pm
I'm loving the details of the cuff. He wears it well.
February 14, 2011 at 7:12 pm
I just love that he understands to mix and match elegant garments with the rugged texture of the overcoat.
February 14, 2011 at 7:16 pm
what a handsome man!!
February 14, 2011 at 7:42 pm
Yes, please tell us who this beautiful man is..Robert WHO!
February 14, 2011 at 9:07 pm
Kaftans are one of those timeless traditional garments that look amazing on both men and women!The gentleman wears it really nicely, I'd like to see his summer way of wearing it :)
The detail the kaftan and it trimmings bring to this look feels like it could be picked up in a few seasons, like a moving on from the folk trends.Really inspiring!!Love your blog for that!

I like how it peaks out, and matches the others colors in the outfit. Very classy. My Heart Blogged
February 14, 2011 at 9:56 pm
I absolutely LOVE the camel colours in the first picture. Robert is always so stylish. But I can't help thinking he'd be so drop dead gorgeous if he just had a shave!
February 14, 2011 at 10:31 pm
Robert Rabensteiner, always impressive! I'm curious to know what shoes he's wearing in those pictures

This is excellent. I can understand what you mean about subtly, especially when mixing in elements from other cultures. It's very chic when that piece isn't screaming out for attention.
February 14, 2011 at 10:54 pm
i, personally, would much rather be lounging in a caftan and planning a brunch…. but he looks unique and quite dapper…
February 14, 2011 at 11:07 pm
Love his coats. I like the details of the caftans. Amazing.

So many iPhones!! Ha I wonder if you have seen any rooms where every single person is there phone. I wouldn't be surprised. But seriously great photo. He reminds me of someone.
February 15, 2011 at 1:46 am
What a stunning man, he makes these clothes look awesome! Great combination…
February 15, 2011 at 2:51 am
I just adore Robert and his unique sense of style. I am a big fan too!!! He just works it!
February 15, 2011 at 2:52 am
Bohemian, mysterious, and totally convincing.
His lack of accessories is part of the style he has created for himself. No hat, scarf, shades, and thankfully no cigar;), only his Hemingway style beard.
It ads to the impression of an adventurous gentleman. As if he were saved from a shipwreck – and given the captain's best coat.
February 15, 2011 at 3:19 am
fashion week means a lot of posts on this blog! i love it~
February 15, 2011 at 3:39 am
A fantastic combination individual yet sophisticated. He is very intriguing
February 15, 2011 at 3:50 am
i hope i look as handsome as he does at that age.
February 15, 2011 at 3:56 am
He reminds me of a Russian Czar in that caftan (he kinda looks Russian with that beard too), by the way, its pronounced the same in Russian.

February 15, 2011 at 4:21 am
Renaissance gentleman in the first pic. Love the shirt.
February 15, 2011 at 4:50 am
Very Chic Robert and keep the beard (even in summer). A friend who lived in Paris says the Parisiennes don't like bright colours in clothes and mainly wear black. Can this be true?
February 15, 2011 at 5:20 am
Very handsome gentleman!
February 15, 2011 at 5:57 am

One needs a mix of chutzpah and nonchalance to carry off this unusual though immensely elegant look…Robert surely has them both!!

February 15, 2011 at 8:17 am
Not totally convinced, but… unique for sure, and I love his attitude.
February 15, 2011 at 8:43 am
I agree with Mens Cufflinks…..His smile makes me smile and I LOVE that beard!
February 15, 2011 at 8:57 am
yeah, it is so chic and original to mix caftans with classic coat <3
February 15, 2011 at 9:06 am
Please forgive me for my ignorance, but he is Robert WHO??? Anyway, he is a very stylish gentleman and an inspiration for everybody.
February 15, 2011 at 9:09 am
Seems, like he is from another century. Only his IPhone remembers of today`s world !Awesome!
February 15, 2011 at 10:11 am
I love this combo! I would have never thought of that on my own.

This man and his style is gorgeous. Always stylish, never too rich with a huge portion of life experience. I can wear these things directly. Where can i find a kaftan like that ?
February 15, 2011 at 7:57 pm
Are you kidding me with that beautiful, artful beard! How handsome…wish more men had beards…

he looks totally different from my grandpa but in someway and somehow, he reminds me of my grandpa. The vibe. Great photoon another note, ilove the quote.
February 17, 2011 at 3:42 am
This is not a Caftan, this is a Jabador… A caftan is a traditional Moroccan dress for women;)
February 17, 2011 at 5:04 am
only 2 words: stylish and handsome! damn handsome:)
February 17, 2011 at 6:44 am
Gorgeous!! But this is not Caftan. This is a Jellaba. I know as i am in Morroco and that is what most men wear a coat.

Just an awesome guy. He appears to be such a wise person.
February 19, 2011 at 1:25 pm
A great simple look – yet difficult to put together.

it comes with no thought. If it did it would be overdone. ox

Being knee length, and worn by a man, would this rather be designated a kurta? Perhaps I am mistaken but I thought caftan/kaftan were worn primarily by women and always are ankle length.
February 25, 2011 at 1:48 am
Adore this man and his style. On my website I have a category called 'progress chic' that describes something that references the past but is thoroughly modern. I can't think of a better example than Robert's caftan/coat combo.
