    :) This guy makes me smile. Great bag. The coat is a dream. The cardigan makes my heart pump. The pants and shoes are just off but that makes the whole look, right? And perhaps contributes to a big part of my smile?

    I love this photo! I love the patterns and proportions and the shape of his pants. Brown bag is a little distracting, but his clothes are great.

    He is fly. So put together and so confident.

    I usually hate the drop-crotch, but he wears it with ease.

    I’m actually not too fond of this look. The pants are too slouchy and I don’t like the coordination between the cardigan and the coat, nor the bag…and the Converse are too clean, but that’s just nitpicking. I guess it’s just personal preference, but this isn’t in my taste.

    awesome. I love how confident and stylish he is, even at that age. :) Of course, I’m a huge fan of plaid and argyle, too… ^^ There’s a certain “aging, elegant punk” aura to this guy. Excellent stuff.

    The word “effortless” is often used as an accolade on this site, even when–to me–is doesn’t seem especially applicable.
    But this man. Wow. I haven’t a clue whether he planned this outfit for hours or simply awoke in the morning and hurriedly threw on what was at hand. Perhaps it’s a case of taking Chanel’s advice and removing one thing before he left his home. Whatever his method, he looks nonchalantly magnificent and this photo has become my personal touchstone for “effortless dressing.”

    I sure like this shot, from the way you placed the subject on the light-colored pebbles and black backdrop to the interplay of tones light to dark of his ensemble. The figure exemplfies a great balance and integration of the patterns and colors of his clothes with his hair color. Even though he must have thought this out to some extent it looks comfy and natural. And I like his straight-on gaze.

    His entire outfit is carried through his stance, it gives the softness of the argyle and plaids an edge.

    Both this and the paris image are of well dressed people. I especially enjoy the continuity of them both having on Chuck Taylor All Stars in a much less expected fashion. Yumm! Thank you for pointing that out for us. A reminder that good styling benefits from those personal touches and a smart mix of “high and low” brow pieces.

    Keep it coming!

    on a side note, I really like what he’s got going on with his hair. a little long but kept and working the grey is very nice.

    I love the top. The layers are wonderful. The coat is impeccable. I love the shoes. It gives him a relaxed, casual but stylish touch. The bag is great. I don’t like the pants. They are too baggy and the crotch is too low making his legs look very short.

    I love this look! I am SO copying it as I feel it would work on me.

    One thing, I don’t think this guy is “old” at all. a lot of guys start greying in their 20′s or older.

    Whatever, even though I couldn’t pull off the dropped crotch, I love this look! And if he had used a black bag it would have been way expected.

    Perfect!

    Sorry. Coat, sweater and bag are great on their own, but the overall look is sloppy and not to be copied. The man does seem to have great confidence, but that can’t save this look.

    The hair gets my attention before anything else. I’m planning to go grey in the next few years (I prefer to think of it as silver – as I become more valuable!) So I have become tuned in to the way people’s silvering hair becomes part of their signature look.

    I love to see people looking comfortable in their own skin and un-dyed silver tresses. This guy looks brilliantly comfortable.

    I’m completely in disagreement with just about everybody. All this fellow needs is a kitchen sink in his free hand to complete the ensemble. TTH. The pants are ridiculous, giving him a visual leg length that makes a dachshund look a daddy long legs. I love plaid, but that jacket? Well, let’s just say my grandma’s couch wants its fabric back.

    I haven’t yet read what everyone else said about him, but what strikes me are those sneakers. They are the style affectation of our time.

    Leather shoes would have completed this look, maturely and appropriately. But the play shoes add that juvenile message “that we don’t take ourselves too seriously”, even as we slave away at work, family and other commitments of life.

    I’m surprised at the amount of blowback he’s getting for the Cons: at this point, Chuck Taylors seem to me as much a traditional element of menswear as argyles and glen plaid. The creamy color is a nice complement to the greys and whites, too.
