    Oh my gosh I almost never comment but I can’t express how much I adore this photo, it manages to capture so much emotion and I feel like I know the guy only by his expression and gesture. I think he’s very attractive but in an unconventional way, especially with his piercing gaze..So poetic

    • Cari Hislop

      That is exactly what I was thinking! I know I’ve read way too many biographies on dead Frenchmen, but that gaze! Is he a Revolutionary or an Aristocrat? I don’t think it makes any difference. I wouldn’t want to make him mad!

    The man on the right conjures a memory of being in Paris in the 6th grade. I looked around at all of the beautiful people, and secretly wished that one of the adorable French boys would ask me to lunch. They all had this haircut, and seemed to know so much more than the American boys. More than a decade later and I still wonder…

    Makes me think of the Paris of Balzac, Stendhal. Evoking a period feel without seeming to copy a ‘look’, it’s in the colour of the coat, the fur, the unusual collar. It’s such a pleasure seeing beautifully dressed men.

    • Monsieur Marcel

      October 22, 2012 at 10:55 pm

      Agreed! Also–Delacroix, who wore a fur collar coat in a self-portrait.

    Tough dressed – man on the left – and a bag of Hermes. No Frenchman, more a man from the east. Clothing is OK. I know a good hairdresser for this young man.

    He is so intriguing … He’s like an aristocratic Goth from the 70′s… I dunno… The Hermes shopping bag adds to the intrigue…

    He indeed looks like Ben Barnes’ Version of Dorian Gray, even though it’s nothing like the book’s character… except for the outfit, maybe :)

    Amazing photo easily one of Schuman’s best!
    I love this man’s sense of style. A kind of I do things my way-don’t give a damn to the world look. He’s totally beautifully dressed but very tough at the same time. REGAL BOHEMIAN! What an artist.
    The accent of the brooch pinned to the fur collar of the coat is provocative. This makes me proud to see that a man can have a brilliant sense of style and spin it on its head.
    I love the interplay of elegance and edgy-ness, gentleman and rock star,
    eloquence and powerful. This is the kind of style that lifts people off their feet.

    I wish one day to own a coat just like it!
