    Almost Don Quixote! The beard is perfect, that raised eyebrow, and the hat is just the right barber's basin shape, but felt rather than metal. How cool.

    FanTASTIC. The hat, the scarf, the gaze, the beard, the stripes. Every inch an original.

    (btw, I love this blog, but the parade of American Apparel nubiles that appear to the left of your photographs is annoying)

    At first when I looked at this guy I noticed his beard and thought "old man", but he appears to have very few wrinkles so perhaps he is actually not very old at all? Great portrait.

    Another great shot. I cannot help but define this character by the flaccid handkerchief in his top pocket and the bite-marks in his hat. A frisson of sexual tension, methinks.

    the things that separate one man's style from another can be simple but have drastic effects. take away the hat, beard and the drooping pocket square and i could see myself in this outfit. however adding these simple elements completely transforms the look and makes it personal to him and no one else.

    Haha now THAT is inspirational, that will be me in 20 years, once my beard goes white! I love the simple t-shirt under all that splendor, there is balance and humility in it. Combined with his wonderful expression, you can see that he is laughing at himself too.

    You've captured him. I could write an entire book about this photo. Absolutely amazing. And his hat! It looks like something nibbled at the brim. I want to see more…this is so great. His skin is very young-looking. His beard must be dyed. Not that a dyed beard makes any less an impact on me. On the contrary, he seems more fascinating considering it to be true. Cheers!

    I can't get my head around this look at all, but the proportion of the single visible dark waistcoat button exposed over the striped jacket is perfect.

    If you turn this photo upside-down (an old Joel Meyerowitz trick), the waistcoat button is the absolute anchor of this image / look.

On the other hand, his whole attitude gives the impression that he is painted himself right at the moment. This foto is picture-perfect!

    I 'm loving the portraits and appreciate the Sargent reference. It's really too bad that some of your readers/followers/fans don't understand that a documentary photographer can also be an artist! But that is their shortcoming and not yours! Alas, there will always be some who just don't get it.

    I agree, he looks like the perfect subject for a rich oil painting. He also looks familiar–is it Mick Fleetwood (drummer, Fleetwood Mac)? Mick's a fairly snazzy dresser, and often raises eyebrows (his and those of others). Love the portrait series.

    Really can't make up my mind about this guy! Something about the beard/hat combo especially. I like the elements, but the whole combination, I'm really not sure.

    Yes, he is younger than you think. But this irritation and his intense and scrutinizing glance make it – except the wonderful style.

    Sart, I'm loving this series of portraiture, they each have such a painterly feeling about them. There is such range of emotion and really rather telling personalities revealed.

    Can't wait for the next one.

    Gah! I think that tanish collar of his [or whatever you call it] is amazing. I like that better than a tie.

    I know, dumb ?, but anyone know how achieve that? I am having a wedding this year and I would love my fiance to wear his suit like that instead of using a tie.

    Love the suit, and the hat, for some strange reason, works perfectly…..and i love its colour

    His beard and expression are priceless and totally make this a winning shot !
