    Isn’t it great when style and substance merge? (Actually they’re one and the same, but that’s a discussion for another day.)

    He knows who he is (or wants to be)–and looks it. Perfectly. Down to the gloves.

    The gloves!

    Although I don’t like the look, I have to admit the guy put a lot of effort in pulling it together. His jacket is absolutely gorgeous.

    But he makes me want to run up and place a flower on his lapel. That’s what I would do if I saw him on the street.

    Great photo. love how the reflection on the lenses blocks out the eyes, giving the appearance of ultimate scenester indifference. Kudos, Sartorialist.

    He looks like the evil scientist assistant from some retro spy movie. Fun!

    I am in love with this outfit, from head to toe he worked this look to perfection.

    And the jacket, I would love to have such a piece in my closet.

    He has a real ‘villain’ quality to him. Well done.

    i really like it when your pictures have a sense of symmetry that elevate the image from street photography to something much more tempered. bitchin!

    The glasses reminded me of Harry Potter! But H.P. smiles and this guy….well…. I hope he will have a better day tomorrow.

    he reminds me of warhol as well. but the collar and the coat are perfect and i like the how he has the red neckerchief tied high around his neck.

    i can always appreciate a person that takes consideration in what they wear

    I don’t see Warhol; I see a male Edith Head?

    He looks like a charecter out of graphic novel and there’s a hint of Jarvis Cocker too (I blame the specs).

    As sid ford mentioned in an earlier post this is obviously a Jarvis Cocker immitation rather than Andy Warhol.
    In fact, his look is an utter replica (dare I say rip-off) of the Jarvis/Pulp look circa 1995-1996. It’s amazing what passes off as originality nowadays a decade after everyone discarded Britpop.

    This I love- a total character. His posture is Edward Scissorhands-like. Very cool. He also has some real life to his face, nice lines, very real.

    I bet that he is a designer because of his glasses. Andy Warhol’s dark brother?

    Awesome. I saw him on Broadway on Wednesday…
    I love that his style is that original and theatric.

    I love this man’s look. It just shows that narrow, fitted proportions for men WORK. Still not sold on the super-shrunken lengths in certain TB suits though.

    He has shopped in my store before and everything (literally) about him reminds me of Warhol. He’s a really nice guy.

    I bet his outfit go nottin to do with andy, I’d say he wants to refer to the philosophical group of existentialists, from the 5os, Jean paul satre, camus and so on! anyone else share my opinion, thats exactly the look they put to the road, dangling between university and jazzclub!

    Warhol seems to be the consensus here — but is anyone else thinking Waldo?

    He is always in the coffee shop across the street (88 Orchard) so I am sure he must be at Brown often too, as someone else mentioned! I always notice him…
