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.

Looks like a 21st century Warhol!
March 29, 2007 at 10:10 am
OH MY GOD!ANDY WARHOL!!!!
March 29, 2007 at 10:15 am
No idea what this is all about.

Take me to your leader . . .

Wow. Almost makes you believe in reincarnation…
…love the way he’s incorporated his scarf/bandana.

Warhol? More like The Beta Band meets Jarvis Cocker

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.

warhol lives. thanks anonymous. that was going to be my comment verbatum. what a great day it is for clothing and art.

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!
March 29, 2007 at 12:28 pm
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.
March 29, 2007 at 12:30 pm
the glasses!!for me, they’re pretty much make the outfit.
March 29, 2007 at 1:06 pm
Hello silver factory! I really like this guy.

March 29, 2007 at 1:34 pm
oh dear, this is the guy from sin city (played by elijah wood). yikes!
March 29, 2007 at 1:57 pm
Evil genius! Great look.
March 29, 2007 at 2:18 pm
isn’t this the mad scientist from that cartoon?
March 29, 2007 at 2:30 pm
He has a real ‘villain’ quality to him. Well done.
March 29, 2007 at 3:34 pm
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!
March 29, 2007 at 4:21 pm
The glasses reminded me of Harry Potter! But H.P. smiles and this guy….well…. I hope he will have a better day tomorrow.
March 29, 2007 at 5:05 pm
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
March 29, 2007 at 6:06 pm
I don’t see Warhol; I see a male Edith Head?
Maybe I’m cracked.
March 29, 2007 at 7:11 pm
I want to hear his voice..
March 29, 2007 at 7:31 pm
can anyone say warhol?
March 29, 2007 at 7:32 pm
this warhol whisperer, clearly uses his 6th sense toward fashion.i dream of genius.
giggles and shits
March 29, 2007 at 8:04 pm
He looks like a charecter out of graphic novel and there’s a hint of Jarvis Cocker too (I blame the specs).
March 29, 2007 at 9:08 pm
I want to see his “mad scientist lair” so badly…
THE BLUE-HYMN NOTEBOOKS
March 29, 2007 at 9:16 pm
i see this gentleman often in chinatown, the lower LES (brown @ brunch, etc) and he never fails to make my heart sing. thank you for posting him!
March 29, 2007 at 10:02 pm
I want him outside of a lower-end coffe shop with a clove cigarette and a copy of L’Etrenger (not translated, fo course.)
March 29, 2007 at 10:39 pm
Before I saw all the ‘ments I also thought Warholian. What did you tink Sart when you spotted this feller?
March 29, 2007 at 10:42 pm
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.
March 29, 2007 at 10:44 pm
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.
March 29, 2007 at 11:05 pm
I bet that he is a designer because of his glasses. Andy Warhol’s dark brother?
March 30, 2007 at 2:15 am
Awesome. I saw him on Broadway on Wednesday… I love that his style is that original and theatric.
March 30, 2007 at 3:12 am
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.
March 30, 2007 at 8:54 am
He has shopped in my store before and everything (literally) about him reminds me of Warhol. He’s a really nice guy.
March 30, 2007 at 1:49 pm
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!
March 30, 2007 at 5:13 pm
Best pose of this month…
Do you give directions, Scott?
March 31, 2007 at 5:40 am
Warhol seems to be the consensus here — but is anyone else thinking Waldo?
April 2, 2007 at 1:54 pm
It’s Woody Allen’s evil twin.
April 3, 2007 at 12:28 am
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…
