    Love the look. I hope I look this good when I am his age!

    This is a lost art. It’s so uplifting to see someone who cares enough to represent himself so well- put together, well thought out, charming and “classy”.

    That’s very funny, anonymous 6.27 -I immediately thought of George Grosz too! I love this man, and the lady above too, they both look like they are in the prime of their lives, and enjoying it. Inspiring. Their outfits are perfect too.

    It took me a minute or so of looking at this picture to actually see each component… the whole is just that engrossing.

    Arny’s… I miss that store. I came across it by accident one day when I got lost in Paris. I bought a hat and admired the clothes. Great place. Very unique style, too. I remember that I had never before seen lapels like those on their suits.

    Nice details, nice palette.

    Not crazy about the tiny revers and consequenly small shirt-tie opening…but once you’ve gone that route, you undoubtdly can’t leave the top jacket button open.

    Which would have been preferale, as the jacket, as he’s got it, emphasisizes his bulk…

    What do you all think of the turnup cuffs? Too wide? Or just cool? I’m also interested in how this clearly wide gentleman manages to combine a loose fitting upper leg – apparently with a flat front – with such a nicely tapered and slim lower leg without giving the whole thing either a “rapper pant” appearance or a carrot-like shape. Sart, others – any ideas?

    Touching. I hope he is having a dinner date with the dame in that white duffel coat above him.

    Send this photo to Thom Browne with a note that says, “Proper length for trousers.”

    That tie really brings everything together. His shoes are beautiful, and his pants the perfect length, IMO.

    Not to be a pedant but the Arny’s is a diner in Spokane, WA (google it if you don’t beleive me).

    The store in Paris is Arnys.

    Still, great shot!

    I love well dressed men!
    Old men with style are hard to find! I wonder if this generation will dress the part when it gets to that age…

    He looks like Brahms! Nice pant length. Beautiful break on the shoe. He freelances with the patterns, but does not stray from “2-2-1″.

    I remember this man! What does/did he do? I love the slanted besom pockets and the grey-yellow scheme. But most of all I have to commend this man for his impeccable (properly cared for) shoes. They finish the line of the leg perfectly. Simply impeccable.

    It is Arnys…. I was wondering myself..

    I’m surprised by how much I like the cuffs capping the shoes. I usually like a wider line.

    Bravo for him! Smart and stylish–but there will never be a picture on this site of a woman of similar girth.

    The cuff thing is a conundrum. Something about the wider 2″ cuff speaks to me; a “man’s cuff”.

    WHEN I VISITED ARNY’S LAST APRIL MICHEL GRIMBERT HIMSELF WAITED ON ME. HE WAS MOST PLEASANT AND WAS SARTORIALLY RESPLENDENT, IN A CONSERVATIVE VESTED SUIT. I WISH THE DOLLAR WAS NOT SO WEAK AS I’D LIKE TO RETURN TO ARNY’S BUT IT LOOKS LIKE I’LL HAVE A LONG WAIT.

    The late Philippe Noiret was the perfect incarnation of the Arnys style.

    It is all about being “well heeled” – excellent choice of shoes.

    The tailoring on that suit is amazing. It’s sad really how no one looks like that anymore, with such perfectly proportioned clothes and such a put-together look. Well, at least we know it isn’t lost entirely!
