Nobody does it quite like Mr. Bowles!

I just wish that for once in my life I would really meet a man dressed like that. Of course his eyes are just adorable as well…
January 7, 2007 at 11:54 am
I think the glasses make all the difference.

Nobody does pattern better than Hamish Bowles!

I would love to see the picture in colour. please upload it.
FLOWERS FOR YESENIN

Bowles is the master. Now I know what glasses I should have. Thanks!

Very dandyish, nothing better than bold statements pulled off with flair.
January 7, 2007 at 4:19 pm
Yes I would love to see it in color too! color makes a difference…Hes the best!
January 7, 2007 at 4:24 pm
what a great combo.
I’d also love to see it in color.
January 7, 2007 at 4:34 pm
So riotously cute!Swoon…

Hamish is always into his patterns – he pulls it off everytime! Ilove how his style hasnt changed much over the years, he must be very content!
January 7, 2007 at 5:59 pm
Wow, this shot is so cool. Very inspiring.

It seems a little busy to me. The patterns conflict because they’re of similar scale. Though with help from the frames and personality, he is able to pull it off.
January 7, 2007 at 7:39 pm
I really like his tie, Sat would you happen to know what it is made of?
January 7, 2007 at 8:05 pm
The glasses just simply tie the prints together.
January 7, 2007 at 8:12 pm
not sure if it’s the same outfit, but here is the Tie (fourth from left) in a color shot:

Brave gentleman… Bravo!

I think he is wearing the exact same shirt and tie combo on Sept. 17, 2006 in a pic on your blog. That picture is in color (shirt: purple, tie: black hounds tooth). He looked cool there too but attitude is what sells it…Mr. Bowles has a PhD. in style. On most people (read: 90%) it would be a train wreck. Funny how much attitude and chutzpah carry the day. A lesson for us all (o.k. for me..)

I want to work at a place where the men think to dress like this. (Did I mention I’m in the fashion-challenged Philadelphia suburbs? I guess I should keep dreaming.)
January 7, 2007 at 10:29 pm
holy patterns, batgirl.
this man is adorable as well. he’s probably gay….not that there is anything wrong with that, of course…..
January 7, 2007 at 10:49 pm
Hamish Bowles is a style icon.
January 7, 2007 at 11:20 pm
oh mr bowles!
January 8, 2007 at 12:20 am
I wish more men would wear glasses, but glasses with some hmmm, how do you say…character. not trendy hip styles.
January 8, 2007 at 12:41 am
The patterns just seem to blend.

Intricate and executed handsomely.
January 8, 2007 at 2:25 am
How interesting; I didn’t notice the shirt/tie combo until after I inspected his glasses (which, IMO, are far more interesting) and smirk.
January 8, 2007 at 8:42 am
Love the whole look! The geek glasses, the mismatched prints, the bemused expression all add up so nicely. Lately I have taken to wearing mismatched prints and suprising shots of color which all somehow go together and I love how it looks!

It’s Bold on Bold on Bowles. Hamish Bowles is pretty much amazing when it comes to bold patterns.
January 8, 2007 at 11:07 am
It looks great on Mr Bowles. His glasses and his hair all look right too. Plus his little grin!
January 8, 2007 at 8:21 pm
I knew it was Hamish! The guy always reminds me of Yves St. Laurent.
January 8, 2007 at 8:57 pm
I heart Hamish. His photos at style.com show several examples of a paisley tie with a plaid shirt, a combination I have been wanting to try myself but have been doubtful about. Maybe now I will have the courage.
January 8, 2007 at 9:51 pm
not only do his hair and glasses complement the outfit, but so does his face – the expression and more so the actual bone structure. perfect
January 10, 2007 at 2:49 pm
Hamish Bowles – Gorgeous!
I also think it’s the same combo that we saw earlier in the year – Perfecttt
January 10, 2007 at 4:27 pm
I LOVE to mix patterns as much as possible, but as the person said before me just a little to close in scale. I find it very confusing to the eye. Really did not care for it in the 70′s (Those large prints and patterns) and certainly don’t like it now. Sorry Mr. Bowles!
January 10, 2007 at 9:55 pm
Oh, I love love love the houndstooth tie. The whole thing is just divine!
January 12, 2007 at 9:18 am
I’ve looked and looked at this photo, but I just can’t like these patterns. Too over the top, not to mention hard on the eyes.Sorry — but as they say, de gustibus non disputandum est.

I have a black and white gingham dress shirt, and I LOVE throwing a tie at it that no one else would ever consider. One of my favorites!
