cargo pants? are we in 8th grade?
eccentric looking guy. very interesting.
March 5, 2008 at 9:35 am
I love all the gray tones.
Blue Floppy Hat

I love the monochrome, but the whole shot gets elevated to another level by the fact that he has his hat off..
March 5, 2008 at 9:44 am
Ah, spring really is coming, isn’t it? What lovely details: the scarf, that hat, the necklace, and that hair. Here’s a striking, seemingly effortless man. Beautiful.
March 5, 2008 at 9:45 am
Yet again: greys, greys, greys. Yes! I can’t get enough of them :)). Gorgeous.And very, very interesting man.

I’ve only left one other comment on here, and that was for a friend of mine. All I have to say is PERFECTION!

This is classic Paris, an effortless yet meticulous look, and his face is wonderful — nonchalant with a hint of a smirk. And, of course, Parisians know how to tie a good scarf.
March 5, 2008 at 10:38 am
Oh. He is dashing indeed. I like the subtle references to Paris in his attire. Black and White Stripes, cigarrette, fedora, beautiful person. Slightly ironic in a lovely, calm, casual way.

The ring and the shirt echo. Cool.
March 5, 2008 at 11:12 am
enough with the scarves already. at a point it makes no fashion statement other than baa baa.
March 5, 2008 at 11:20 am
Love this….entirely my style.
March 5, 2008 at 11:27 am
Yuk. Cliché. Annoying.

great from the waist up, but the trousers are hideous

this one i love.
March 5, 2008 at 12:11 pm
This is a beautiful look. I love your older subjects. They face the camera in such an assured and tranquil way. Hope to see the “silver fox femme” again soon.
March 5, 2008 at 12:43 pm
Love all the layers and shades of grey.
March 5, 2008 at 1:18 pm
it’s the shades of grey that really makes this work – i’d love to see this shot in black and white.
March 5, 2008 at 1:23 pm
the detail is lovelyso is the scarf
great photography again sart!
March 5, 2008 at 2:07 pm
i would like to (at age 55) morph into a male version of myself and dress exactly like him.
March 5, 2008 at 2:28 pm
a definite cool dude.
March 5, 2008 at 2:44 pm
March 5, 2008 at 2:55 pm
Only good things are the hat and scarf.
March 5, 2008 at 2:58 pm
This is very chic and simple–exactly what I’d expect in Paris. It’s also true androgynous dressing; it would look equally great on a man or a woman without “compromising” masculinity or femininity.
March 5, 2008 at 3:05 pm
Love all the different shades of grey! Fantastic hair and beard too.
March 5, 2008 at 3:08 pm
Is this the guy from Big Trouble in Little China?
March 5, 2008 at 3:13 pm
i love the monochromatic scheme!
March 5, 2008 at 3:17 pm
I love the lavender hat.
March 5, 2008 at 4:45 pm
I like the clothes, but the head is just too “Pirates of the Caribbean” for my taste.
March 5, 2008 at 5:22 pm
what a hip dude!
March 5, 2008 at 6:11 pm
the gently rumpled look works well with his face, hair and physical type.
March 5, 2008 at 6:28 pm
i love the way his dainty hands are holding his hat.
March 5, 2008 at 7:16 pm
i like all that combination..
March 5, 2008 at 7:40 pm
March 5, 2008 at 7:44 pm
I like this.
March 5, 2008 at 7:52 pm
I really want to see what shoes he is wearing!!!!!
March 5, 2008 at 7:57 pm
This is going to drive me nuts – he looks really familiar…
March 5, 2008 at 8:18 pm
So haggard, but still so fresh. I love him.
March 6, 2008 at 12:47 am
unreal look, mixes highs of the fedora and leather with lows of cargos. Beautiful chain which is layered over scarf. nice work!
March 6, 2008 at 1:25 am
The grays are work together beautifully, and I love the amulet peeking out underneath the scarf…but what really makes this photograph for me is the slightly raised eyebrow and the relaxed but slightly haughty air of a man who’s laid back and confident. I may be a college student, but to me this expression is the epitome of cool.
March 6, 2008 at 3:30 am
The greys and his facial expression give off a calm, cool, and collective look! I love it!
March 6, 2008 at 5:34 am
Would never have given him a second look on the street but then again, the scarf, the wonderful way the fabric folds around his neck and accents the vertical lines in the jersey. I very much agree with the post about the older subject’s faces; visions of serenity and competence no matter what their walk of life has been.
March 6, 2008 at 7:17 am
I know this man. he owns a select clothing store in Osaka japan. A charming man, all smiles.
March 6, 2008 at 1:36 pm
Are you seeing the pendant? That refines a gamin look I see all the time in Paris, never tire of. And such lovely fingers.
March 6, 2008 at 1:56 pm
He’s Asian Johnny Depp!
March 6, 2008 at 4:28 pm
I really love it all, except I think the pants could have been different.
March 6, 2008 at 5:20 pm
Under the beard lies a great face. He needs a shave, haircut, manicure, a grey suit, white shirt, black knit tie and suede tassels. He’d look brilliant.
March 6, 2008 at 7:06 pm
one of my favorites… ever.so fun to read the comments on this one. i love what he is wearing, and the mood of the photograph is so quiet but interesting.
March 6, 2008 at 9:31 pm
this man is gorgeous!and VERY well put together!
March 7, 2008 at 9:56 am
What an extraordinary face.
March 8, 2008 at 10:07 am
Is that Akira Isogawa?
March 11, 2008 at 12:10 am
He looks fantastic, any tips on where to find a a beatutiful grey shawl in NYC? they went extinct..I’ve been looking!
March 11, 2008 at 6:34 pm
it’s the hat. has been since the 30′s; finish a look-or anchor a look around a true Vintage Fedora, quality goods-and it feels all there, visually. The range and scope of hats is such that whatever statement is being made, the hat reinforces it-like a quick jab from a good boxer. it’s the hat.
March 15, 2008 at 7:42 pm
this guy oozes “cool” without even trying. love it

love everything about it…even the ciggy on the bottom right
April 15, 2008 at 12:29 pm
everything about this photo is perfect, sart, subject and background. reminds me why i love neutrals.
July 22, 2008 at 7:50 pm
I think this is simply a beautiful shot. His clothes seem reflect his personality, which to me is effortless and cool. I love it!
December 28, 2008 at 5:18 am
Wow, Vincent Gallo is here in paris!Love this guy.
October 19, 2013 at 9:22 am
He is GORGEOUS. Clothing, face, stance. Despite the carcinogen tool in his hand.
February 23, 2015 at 7:54 am
even though the hat is too self conscious, I love the look. Japanese can pull this off, but it really says “man of leisure”
