I’m of two minds about this. Though he’s got it all together–the palette, the shoes, all the disparate elements, it doesn’t quite add up. Something too conventional here, I’d say.
PS, I once had a shrink who looked and dressed very much like this. Enough said?

Now *this* is a true Sartorialist. Seriously dashing, seriously inspiring. Papi’s got mad style. I only wish I could get my husband to dress this way.
Wow – impressive. Those shoes are divine. Love how the bag picks up the same tan from his jacket.

All hail Boyer!
(Although the tote bag doesn’t really do it for me…)

You can always spot a truly great dresser by the telling details… I love the way Mr. Boyer angles his tie clip opposite to the stripes on his tie.
Not suprising from the man who recently published “Fred Astaire Style” and a wonderful touch.

he probably didnt angle it, tie clips can have a way of angling themselves.

i love the close-up shot. so many wonderful colors and patterns and textures. very fallish too
November 29, 2006 at 10:37 am
the narrow tie and 4-in-hand knot works surprisingly well with the high spread collar

Really don’t like the pants though. The fit, the color, the cuff at the bottom. Waist up he looks great.

Venga majete deja a los neoyorkinos y animate con los sevillanos que verás que fauna…

Very few people do it better than he does. Three patterns all in harmony.
Good catch Scott.

I love his tie!
November 29, 2006 at 11:47 am
I love the combination of colors and textures. They blend so well together!
November 29, 2006 at 11:53 am
perfect color and pattern combo!

Bruce is one of the finest writers on menswear and a great sartorialist! I have often tried to copy him and I just can’t look as good. His style is so simple and elegant.HR

This is why I read your blog everyday.

Very well put together, but there’s far too much pattern when you remove the overcoat. I’m of the opinion that a solid coloured shirt would’ve fared better with the outfit.
Nontheless, a well-dressed gent.

Is that a man bag, or a shopping bag? Either way it goes very well with the colours of his outfit.
positively the same dame
November 29, 2006 at 5:44 pm
he’s got on fred astaire shoes…i wonder what color his socks are.
November 29, 2006 at 6:10 pm
This is great. Again, we shouldn’t get hung up on the “modern” way that a man/woman should dress.
The colors are great and they go wonderfully together. I like the quirky way that he has his hand stuck in his jacket pocket versus that of his trousers.
November 29, 2006 at 6:35 pm
I know that tie bar is vintage. Wish I could see what was on it.
November 29, 2006 at 9:45 pm
It the bag from Filson? I think it is the one profiled in GQ a couple of months ago.
Great blog Sart! Best on the web!

i like everything but the color of the pants. it’s just “off” to me. love that he’s not afraid to carry a bag that looks (IMO) more like a lady’s handbag than a man’s briefcase!
November 30, 2006 at 2:50 am
Isn’t it the same Longchamp bag from Comme des Garçons, Chelsea, a few shots down?
November 30, 2006 at 4:10 am
Perfection, you really do capture some brilliantly and classically dressed gentlemen Sart, and this one is right up there. And the man bag is the clincher for me, what a great modern twist, like it a lot!
November 30, 2006 at 6:14 am
The colours are great – and call me weird but I just cant help noticing how cool the buttonholes are! …..>_<
November 30, 2006 at 8:34 am
Even the bag is color-coordinated…amazing
November 30, 2006 at 9:35 am
I´m mens accessories marketing chief in a spanish dpt store chain. It´s not easy to persuade guys to wear hanbags; you know, spaniards aren´t like italians at all. We´re more classic.
This photo cheers me to think there´s a new kind of men that wears handbags with a very masculine way.

Sexiest man alive!
November 30, 2006 at 12:48 pm
Interesting seeing a man carrying a Longchamp pliage.It’s classic…
November 30, 2006 at 8:20 pm
He has a Longchamp too! I think it goes perfectly with his outfit. I bet he has a bunch in a range of colours to go with what colour jacket he’s wearing for the day.
November 30, 2006 at 10:58 pm
I am a little bothered that his bag matches his coat so well.
stacy (la, ca)

Classy, classy, classy!

I’m just in love with this look.

One of the best writers on men’s style ever to lay pen to paper. If you get the chance, and can find a copy, read “Elegance: A Guide to Quality in Menswear”. It’s a classic, perhaps my favorite book on the subject.
Thanks Sart, for reminding us why he is the definition of classic style.

Talk about style and panache!
February 5, 2007 at 12:33 pm
Love the added touch of the tote bag.
September 6, 2007 at 1:02 am
Seriously good this.So many shades and someone it just blends so well here. the touch of blue and the tie. Wow. Hot.

Thanks for letting us see that there are still some sane people in NYC.
September 7, 2008 at 5:02 pm
The cut is perfect. I would have chosen a slightly darker blue in the shirt.
May 15, 2009 at 4:00 pm
the tie is Atkinsons Irish poplin by the look of it,not too wide thank god perhaps a classic example
