That’s just beautiful! Unreasonable is in the eye of the beholder.p.s. Scarves.

That is a beautiful scarf. Does anyone know wherr it is from? This gentleman looks like the actor that plays Doogie Howser.

Unreasonably beautiful, certainly, but also unreasonably long, in my not-so humble etc.
But I like the rest, and particularly the neck-scarf, which adds a real flourish.

it looks like an Indian (from India….) silk print….. normally worn by women, but he pulls it off with panache
March 10, 2007 at 11:16 am
is it a scarf? a blanket? or maybe un rideaux?
March 10, 2007 at 11:26 am
I like how the scarf lines up with the pillars in the background…whether you intended that or not, it’s very Antonioni! Nice shot.

victor (or rolf) has wee bit long scarf, but the texture and color seems to be compensating the length. what’s important is that the shot works, as always.

I bought a scarf almost like it in Paris from a street vender for my SO but he didn’t like the legnth even though he is 6’4″ so I recently passed it on to a friend.

I like the shawl-collared coat!
March 10, 2007 at 1:19 pm
I love those colours!

Did anyone notice that the listing on the right side of page says “Unreasonably beautiful scar…”? It strikes me that scars are unreasonably beautiful. Poetry in truncation!

He looks like Victor…
March 10, 2007 at 2:30 pm
Fit for a king, that is.

Viktor & Rolf’s long-lost, more conservative partner.

all around the neck! I adore…

this is an indian design. my mum had a few of them… mostly silk. its a woman’s scarf…
March 11, 2007 at 1:21 am
yes, it’s an indian scarf, and men wear it in india on special occasions. It is made of silk (kanchivaram). very thick silk brocade. it looks faboulos on this gentleman

It seems more like an Asian (Indian/ Pakistani) shawl — the Paisley motif is typically Asian; the color scheme, the length of the material, the horizontal design bordering the motifs, the little threads left loose at the end suggests that it’s a shawl. (Also, notice the the fold and the way it rests on the shoulder.) Though am not sure if it’s Pashmina Shawl.
The scarfs/ stoles (popularly known as ‘dupatta’) that Indian women wear are slightly different in form and design.

Yeah, the “scarf’s” from India…though it’s not a scarf but rather a shawl. A shawl is longer coz it’s meant to be wrapped around you and keep you warm. This one’s probably a Kashmiri pashmina…delighfully warm and soft.

I’m not digging it. It’s just too big.
March 11, 2007 at 5:51 am
as an abstract design object it’s very nice
but as a scarf it’s way way way too big, not just on this guy but on anyone under, say, 8 ft tall.
March 11, 2007 at 8:26 am
not a fan of the look, clash of brown colors, I think its boring. the scarf seemed abit too long for him as well, lack of good proportions.
March 11, 2007 at 8:29 am
cute, but so chic and modern. Wonder where her coat is from. This girl could be a modern american version of little red riding hood.
March 11, 2007 at 9:23 am
mmm….i don’t know. i’d like to see something colorful with that outfit. he looks to me like he’s drowning in it.
March 11, 2007 at 12:57 pm
VIKTOR!did he get rid of rolf? :O
March 11, 2007 at 2:45 pm
He does look ALOT like Rolf Snoeren, but this gentleman is at least a decade older.

I agree his scarf is perfect and I love the colours

Lovely scarf indeed…. though I personally think the shot looks even better for having that particular building behind the gentleman in question.
March 12, 2007 at 7:48 am
he looks like he should join Victor & Rolf….could fit right in.
March 13, 2007 at 7:55 am
This shawl is from Pakistan and is called Pashmina Chawder,it can range from $50 to $1500.
March 20, 2007 at 5:58 am
It is an Indian shawl…the ‘mango’ shape embroidery is truly Indian…ask an friend coming down to India to get you one such shawl…you get it in most good handicraft emporiums.The gentleman carries this one off beautifully in the pic! Even women can wear it over a plain tee and a skirt or pants.

OK, it’s just too big. It takes over the outfit. Tho, I think if you evened up the ends it just might work. As for “it’s a woman’s scarf”… Grrr… whatthehell makes it a woman’s scarf fergodsake! Did a woman make it? Did it previously belong to a woman? Oh, your mom had some. Didja ever think maybe she was wearing your DAD’S scarves? Sheesh!
