Scott you are killing me! I already wanted to be old, now I am obsessed with it. I love their classic outdoors inspired look, this is my favorite style of all time. Sooner or later, polyester, lurex, liquid leggings, black lace, see through leggings, slashed fabrics. etc will all fade into obscurity, but good wools always remain.
October 15, 2009 at 1:26 pm
What a divine looking couple; beautiful and happy.
October 15, 2009 at 1:27 pm
Thanks for posting a photo of chic people over the age of 35!
October 15, 2009 at 1:28 pm
This gives me hope for the next few decades of life. Such style!
October 15, 2009 at 1:29 pm
Ridiculous. He wears like a child.In this case the sort pants aren´t cool.I like the shoes.
I think this is all about his scarf, her shirt and her sockless shoes.
October 15, 2009 at 1:30 pm
sockless I love it
October 15, 2009 at 1:33 pm
I like the both very much, they look like feel very comfortable. A bit of scandinavian style. I adore his shoes and the short trousers.
October 15, 2009 at 1:37 pm
Love what the lady is wearin'. She pulls that outfit well even though one should expect it on a man.
love the scarf!
October 15, 2009 at 1:39 pm
I like the overall style but i have to say im not a fan of how short the trousers are.Casio And Timex Watches

Wow! Her outfit is the perfect fall look. She makes all these trends look completely effortless and classic. She nailed it!
October 15, 2009 at 1:52 pm
OK, so her off-kilter plaid is highlighted by the off-kilter belt on the perfect jeans worn with the perfect shoe; all brand new, clearly. And his pant length echoes hers, and his checked scarf echoes hers… and it all reads like it took several hours and a stylist or two to put together…but SO WHAT! They look absolutely dee-vine!!
October 15, 2009 at 1:53 pm
October 15, 2009 at 1:54 pm
groovy couple heh!! i love the way she wears her belt because i wear mine like this sometimes, the shoes and jeans and shirt are so cool, so simple, wonderful. His scarf – yummy x
October 15, 2009 at 1:56 pm

So beautiful together that I feel a warmness. Great shoes, too.

October 15, 2009 at 2:02 pm
These guys and the girl in the last post are THE coolest people by far.Hands down!!!
So quintessentially earthy and chic.
Today has been a day of my fave posts thus far.

cutest couple :)
October 15, 2009 at 2:07 pm
Marvellous shot, stylish couple.
October 15, 2009 at 2:08 pm
a lovely couple, their faces off serenity. Great clothes, beautiful shoes
October 15, 2009 at 2:15 pm
That is a couple to learn from … great style, perfect tan and shoes ;0
October 15, 2009 at 2:16 pm
cool couple… they look more Swedish than French to me – but that's probably just a cliché in my head.
October 15, 2009 at 2:20 pm
Great couple,great look.

cute photo!now, i'm looking forward to grow old withmy husband.
October 15, 2009 at 2:24 pm
awwww, so cute!
October 15, 2009 at 2:27 pm
I don't get what's with people wearing pants that don't fit them! High waters are NOT stylish, and no one can convince me otherwise.
October 15, 2009 at 2:43 pm
October 15, 2009 at 2:46 pm
What a perfect couple – if they are a couple. I hope they are :) She looks fantastic, the entire outfit itself is totally androgynous, even her short hair, but she still looks like a very happy woman. And he just looks like a fun guy; his outfit is simple and comfy but it has that quirky scarf that really makes it his own.
To me they epitomize aging gracefully – learning how to be "older" but not "old."
October 15, 2009 at 2:49 pm
the parisiennes sure know how to live and look good doing it :)
October 15, 2009 at 2:53 pm
Ordinary? No, just perfect!
October 15, 2009 at 2:55 pm
Adorable. She resembles Glenn Close.
October 15, 2009 at 2:57 pm
they compliment each other so well that to see just one of them apart from the other would be like stopping a good movie halfway through. Particularly like how they pick up each other's looks through a bold patterned shirt and scarf.
October 15, 2009 at 3:05 pm
@anonymus the first: ordinary?They are extraordinary. Did you have a look in their faces? But the short pants are too much in this case, I agree with fernando.
October 15, 2009 at 3:16 pm
marvelous, quintessential shot. – fashion and life is all about that.
those who do not understand – and i saw some posts in this forum – have got a lot to learn. … maybe in the next life then.
October 15, 2009 at 3:19 pm
Love her style. i haven't seen anyone wear her shirt in this manner for over a decade. and really love the symmetry between her shirt and her belt.

October 15, 2009 at 3:28 pm
Photos such as these are a key as to why this blog is the terrific thing that it has become. We commonly think that style, fashionability and coolness are limited solely to the young, but really, the ability to do and to be all those things is limited only by what someone carries in their heads. I am a 50 year-old who loves clothing and the theatre of clothing as much as I ever did when I was a 20 year-old, but (like these people) I now have the advantage of a longer perspective and a continually evolving sense of how to present myself in the piazza of public life. Clothing and style are, after all, a continuously changing repose to our evolving sense of the self and the larger culture that surrounds us. It is how we mediate between the fantasies and the realities of our existence. Thank you, again, Scott. I love every picture and await many more which have yet to come.
October 15, 2009 at 3:34 pm
Seemingly effortless, laidback, urban style on on an older (post-hypster) couple. WONDERFUL!
October 15, 2009 at 3:43 pm
this is my favorite street in paris!! their outfits are simple yet nice. they compliment each other very well!!
October 15, 2009 at 3:45 pm
I like the size of the trousers! It is different. Why can we use like this? His scarf is amazing. Both clothes made them younger. Really nice.
October 15, 2009 at 3:48 pm
well ain't he the snarky one!
October 15, 2009 at 3:59 pm
oh man, i hope my man and i look that effortlessly sophisticated when we're old/er
October 15, 2009 at 4:04 pm
Very much people think: The secret to be cool is …Highwaters…
Of course not!
October 15, 2009 at 4:12 pm
This makes me want to be in Paris right now!
What a chic couple! Her loafers,I NEED THEM.
October 15, 2009 at 4:32 pm
Great looks on both of them…together and separately. love the short length pants and especially the sockless brogues on her. I gotta get some of those!!! Thanks Scott!
October 15, 2009 at 4:42 pm
I want to go over to their house for dinner.
October 15, 2009 at 4:45 pm
I would love to be these two in twenty years or so.
October 15, 2009 at 4:50 pm
there is a spark between them, a touch of humor that makes me feel positive! Love it!
October 15, 2009 at 4:56 pm
They both look fabulous!
October 15, 2009 at 5:03 pm
Everything in this picture is great! the place, the couple, the age, the clothes, the elegance, the combination of all of the above… It is the triumpn of classical style above fashion. Ahh… and about the shoes? they are splendid!

An ordinary day in Paris !A great couple, easy-chic as they were on their way to the market on a Saturday morning ! Great !
October 15, 2009 at 5:17 pm
This couple is wonderful. Elegant, classy, grounded yet modern.
I think Jennifer is more accustomed to baggy pants or leggings.

they are kicking it in their brogues!
October 15, 2009 at 5:20 pm
Lovely couple. I like how the plaid works with his pattern scarf. Matchy but in a good way.
October 15, 2009 at 5:21 pm
Just gorgeous. I sent to my husband and said that i hope this is us in 20 years. The thing he loved the most are the high waters. They both have on beautiful shoes. And, they both look healthy, stylish and beautiful.
October 15, 2009 at 5:36 pm
October 15, 2009 at 5:45 pm
i've started appreciating cropped pants now.
October 15, 2009 at 6:03 pm
what a stylish couple – they look very scandinavian, somehow.
October 15, 2009 at 6:26 pm
Classic elegance, simplicity…timeless, ageless.. bravo…
October 15, 2009 at 6:48 pm
What a great looking couple. Genuinely stylish and genuinely happy! You can't beat that.
They dont even look french but american, love the looks
October 15, 2009 at 7:06 pm
What a fantastic looking couple!
October 15, 2009 at 7:41 pm
I don't care who they are or whether they were able to spot Adrian Greiner riding his bicycle with his arse half hanging out… these two are magnificent and a breath of unpretentious fresh air. They are being themselves and take casual to a refined and chic level. They both complement each other perfectly. More like them and less Edith Piafs, please.
October 15, 2009 at 8:41 pm
To be honest I haven't commented here for years now. However, I just couldn't past this one up. This is truly timeless. I love seeing older ladies/gents pull effortless class. Who ever said style had to do with AGE!
October 15, 2009 at 8:42 pm
October 15, 2009 at 8:46 pm
They look great and they look connected to each other. Fab. Love her entire outfit.
October 15, 2009 at 9:07 pm
it's nice to see such a smoke free–low tech couple–no blackberries or cell phones visible or cigarettes for that matter. I love her smile too.
October 15, 2009 at 10:07 pm
Love it all except his scarf. It looks like a neck brace.
October 15, 2009 at 10:22 pm
I don't think they look that old. Mature maybe, nowhere near elderly.
October 15, 2009 at 10:28 pm
I hope my hubbie and I look like them in a few decades.
October 15, 2009 at 10:46 pm
Great attitude and style!
October 15, 2009 at 11:00 pm
love both their style….goes to show that style doesn't fade with age…i want her shoes by the way!
October 15, 2009 at 11:21 pm
this shot is incredible. how do two people coordinate so well?? they seem so effortless.
the thing i love most about this collaboration are her shoes. where can i get some???

wicked shot, lovely couple.
thats how i wanna look when im older!!!!!
October 16, 2009 at 12:24 am
It's difficult not to smile when looking at this picture! Chic and timeless.
October 16, 2009 at 1:49 am
This is an incredible example of androgeny worn by both a man and a women. I see androgenous style far more often worn by women.
Also, androgeny is hard to meld so smoothly with such timeless style often it's more outrageous, gender-bending and angst-y.
I'd love to see this couple swap outfits completely! I bet they'd still both look amazing.

these people got it SO right. amazing couple.
October 16, 2009 at 4:33 am
Hmmm . . . interesting to read the comments . . . I'm probably nearer their age than most commentators and what I really DON'T like the way they are trying SO hard while pretending not to . . . everything is VERY considered . . . What's so wrong with caring how we look !?! Does this make sense ?
October 16, 2009 at 4:44 am
This is my favorite photo so far.I LOVE it! It's a Brillant photo and they are SO cute! So romantic!
October 16, 2009 at 6:14 am
What a beautiful couple! I hope I will be that sexy when I'll get old.
Out of time..easy and perfect. beautiful

October 16, 2009 at 6:59 am
now this is what i'm talkin' about! if you want short trousers, my fellow whippersnappers, learn from yer elders and have the guts to cut them off instead of rolling them up in fear the trend might not last…;-))
very cool btw. both of them. they're perfect accessories for each other…har har
October 16, 2009 at 7:11 am
I'm closer to this couples age that the typical "model" on this blog. Its odd to me how any time you have a pix of someone "older" everyone comments on their age, its so… ageist.
Are the younger readers here really surprised that someone over 40 can pull things together? Why is their age always mentioned? I've loved fashion since I was a little girl and I always will.
My mom is 83 and she has a wonderful style that is all her own, always has had it and I can't imagine why anyone would think that would change as she got older.
Anyhow they are a cute couple, casual, effortless. I do think his pants are a shade short but I've been seeing that more and more on these pages.
October 16, 2009 at 7:22 am
I think they are two pices of the same apple :) I like them shoes a lot.
October 16, 2009 at 7:23 am
They look Dutch to me. Lousy posture, standing with hands in pockets. Pants too short. Ugly santoni's and always a scarf.
October 16, 2009 at 7:41 am
Everytime I look at this picture I love it even more! They match so well =)
October 16, 2009 at 8:53 am
great style! church shoes on her? would love to have dinner conversation with these 2.
October 16, 2009 at 9:02 am
I think she has her shirt and belt caught in the back of his trousers.
October 16, 2009 at 9:19 am
oh my, they are from salzburg, i know them!
October 16, 2009 at 9:40 am
Any anxiety I had over aging gracefully just melted away for a moment. What an elegant couple.
Teresa @ good-grace
October 16, 2009 at 9:45 am
oh my gosh! What a gorgeous couple!! And as one of your readers commented – it makes me look forward to aging a bit… if I could look this chic. Wow! (And I too, am in love with her entire outfit!!)
October 16, 2009 at 9:46 am
The problem with tight, too short pants is that they make feet look too big. But the designers are thinking well ahead of the consumers on this——they know that when highwaters are declared "out", all the current devotees will toss theirs and buy new things. How nice for the industry! Pants that ill fitting will never be classics.
Her pants will be wearable pretty much forever.

October 16, 2009 at 10:09 am
Wow – they both look super, although I'm starting to grow weary of the whole scarf thing.
October 16, 2009 at 10:59 am
Everytime I feel like commenting on your blog, I accidentaly read the other comments, and then remember how they ruin the picture for me.
I love how casual they are, how androgenous and how well they go together as a couple.I don't care if they took all day to get dressed or if his pants will be "out" next week (whatever that means).It's the perfect couple and I enjoyed being able to see them through your photo.
October 16, 2009 at 11:18 am
GREAT couple! This is how to age gracefully!
October 16, 2009 at 11:23 am
Ten bucks says they're Dutch.
October 16, 2009 at 11:27 am
They both look quite dapper.
October 16, 2009 at 11:28 am
Wish I was brave enough to wear trousers that short!
October 16, 2009 at 11:32 am
I like the fact that she pulled her shirt and belt to the side….different. Everybody is excited about this being an older couple so stylish….well we have to keep in shape if we want to look somewhere close to this…. great style.
October 16, 2009 at 2:27 pm
I love it when couples have complementary fashions. Probably without even realizing they do. Without trying. Effortless, elegant and casual all at the same time. Great capture.
Then there are those who go overboard by wearing matching outfits, or exact color schemes.
Loved the blurred image of the guy on the bicycle too.
October 16, 2009 at 2:48 pm
Perfect balance!Absolutely lovely.
October 16, 2009 at 2:49 pm
These two are healthy, happy, have great style and are undoubtedly quite dedicated to being physically fit – and somehow I'm betting yoga and cycling.Now, as for your readers, so many foolish, pathetic, ageist comments. This lovely pair are not Methuselah and his wife. Honestly, must everyone be focused on being a teenager? RELAX! Example – Sting looks far better and sexier now than ever before.

October 16, 2009 at 5:27 pm
Does anyone else see the resemblance to Woodward & Newman? Except, she reminds me of Paul Newman and he's more Joanne Woodward (in a good way of course).
October 16, 2009 at 6:39 pm
Oh my gosh… you are killing me, too. This is all about the woman! She wears it all so well. And the hair! Love love love love. So classic! Real echoes of the menswear look that Garance has been pulling off. A huge fan. I'm off to cut my hair short tomorrow and so this gives me an added boost of confidence as well.

October 16, 2009 at 10:49 pm
effortless, classic – i hope to look just like this.
October 17, 2009 at 12:59 am
i love the red bag.
October 17, 2009 at 1:06 pm
I love this couple. Classic, happy, comfort.
October 17, 2009 at 3:32 pm
I am fifty too – and just the fact that The Sart is my homepage shows that I am as obsessed with clothes as I ever was! As others have said, why the hell not?! Why is it such a surprise? have we really become SO youth- obsessed that we can't see that youthful beauty will always disappear, but style lasts forever? It is artistic expression and an enjoyment of colour, texture, shape and proportion… beautiful things…as well as a distillation of how you present yourself to the world. It's also FUN, so why would one want to give it up just as onegains more confidence at it?Scott – you have always had older people on your pages and unexpected people of all types and that is one of the many reasons you have been so refreshing and so successful. I salute you xx
October 17, 2009 at 5:13 pm
Her: Fantastic!Him: Meh… scarf to me says 'trying too hard to look cool' and hate the terribly smug facial expression.
October 17, 2009 at 8:24 pm
I enjoy his look: very simple and chic. I would dress me like this in the Rio winter. Why not?
October 18, 2009 at 1:22 am
other than how fantastic their styles compliment each other… I am in looove with this photo..I would like to see more photos like these please :) AND ones with animals too!!!!
October 18, 2009 at 6:32 am
LOVE IT !!
October 18, 2009 at 9:12 am
style is not about age (for those of you who included age in your comments)….
no matter how old one is: either you have style or you do not. it is inherent in one's personality, not their chronology.
anyway, this picture is delightful…i would love to have his slacks…looking for khaki's with a cuff for women…and i have ordered a pair of oxford's from steve madden….as a tribute to beautiful her…
old? ha, you're all going to get old…but are you stylish?
54 and proud of it…oh, and looking stylish
October 18, 2009 at 12:02 pm
Ahhhh, I LOVE THIS. I rarely feel inspired to comment but I'm sorry as a 21 year old girl fretting about turning 22, this definitely put things into perspective! They look KILLER! So inspiring!
October 18, 2009 at 12:41 pm
I am so happy to see them here…whoever knows well fashion industry ( with this i mean sales,which is working and "aging" and not the front-row- or pr-under-world) knows them, and appreciates the unusual kindness, education and simpleness of this great couple. anyway, sart, i miss so hard your pictures of "normal" people. I can go down in the street on my own, if I want to see a 40 years old woman, dressed in lggings and with 13 cm heels…. or somebody with the latest fendi or gucci or marni stuff…
October 18, 2009 at 1:12 pm
she is delightful..he is just plain daft
October 18, 2009 at 11:50 pm
OK, they work together both in style, and as a couple – smart and confident. At least, that is what I see!
October 19, 2009 at 11:15 am
Oh, what a handsome woman! I love her rosy cheeks and boyish style, and the fact that she seems totally comfortable in her skin (and outifit). Although his look is a little more ordinary, he still looks like he makes an effort and they look lovely together.
October 19, 2009 at 2:39 pm
beyond rad! these two are seriously F A B!
October 20, 2009 at 2:45 am
October 20, 2009 at 9:20 am
and this is how you find magnificence in the everyday and offsite.
October 20, 2009 at 3:29 pm
They're just lovely–unpretentious, stylish, and happy. And it's wonderful to see a woman standing straight and tall, confident and strong, while posing!

December 16, 2009 at 1:29 pm
I just love his outfit. He looks simple and cool. classic and stylish. The touch of the short hems is even cooler on a man over the 50's, and the thick scarf wrapped around the neck completely makes the different!!!
December 31, 2009 at 5:48 am
they are the parents of my best friend the greatest people you can possibly meet!
June 20, 2012 at 1:21 pm
This is a perfet and wonderful couple, Scott, I love it, and I love your “eye”.
July 11, 2012 at 2:03 pm
Trim, sexy, rich… in Paris with a great-looking woman by his side – I might look a little “smug” too. And, oh, he’s NOT trying too hard with the scarf. If he’s European – this is just second nature to him. He’s not trying at all.
Yes, it might be Roy Dantendorfer – (the name) “stands for most elegant men and women’s fashion. Best quality material and outstanding manufacture guarantee satisfaction even for highest demands. You will find classic models for every occasion and trendy fashion, as well as sports and leisure clothing.” Now, tell me again, how he’s trying too hard…
September 16, 2012 at 3:22 pm
Simple and at the same time there is something about the look!!
May 8, 2018 at 2:12 pm
These two gentlemen look very smart and very happy.
