This man has un je ne sais quoi romantic, his pose, his quiet look?
and his costume is lovely, love the colour and the little mouchoir a pois in his pocket…..

I love this. It's so beautiful. Definitely saving this image and showing it slyly to my boyfriend.
October 5, 2009 at 2:26 pm
This is a gorgeous photo. Love the light!

He looks like the type of guy that doesn't care what he wears; it just so happens that he's wearing a very nicely cut and color coordinated suit. That's the best situation in fashion.
October 5, 2009 at 2:46 pm
He is looks perfect, but he is not French non?
October 5, 2009 at 3:02 pm
Love the way he put his outfit together – understated, stylish, conservative (like his haircut) – and what an expression! Is that the beginning of a smile, or mild disdain?
October 5, 2009 at 3:08 pm
I'd wear the outfit, but can't say the same about the haircut. Reminds me of a mushroom cut from the 90's with the buzzed sides
October 5, 2009 at 3:10 pm
I won't say perfection since everyone else has but he is indeed the picture of elegance. This is how men should dress for a business or more formal environment. He could be English or French (my guess would be French but definitely the style Anglaise) but it hardly matters. This is how it is done.
October 5, 2009 at 3:12 pm
I love your French photos but where is the Toronto love from when you were here in the summer?! I'd love to see your interpretation of Canuck style. Keep up the great work! xo

Why can't all men dress like this? Suits that fit correctly, pocket squares, and a nice polka dotted tie…is that too much to ask? Well done!
October 5, 2009 at 4:02 pm
He looks very fresh and innocent. I love the hair!
October 5, 2009 at 4:10 pm
Very sweet and a warm colors
October 5, 2009 at 4:22 pm
It is nice, but a little bit Pee Wee Herman

I'd wear this. It's mature, yet youthful. Very classic.
October 5, 2009 at 4:59 pm
I'm not quite sure I see what makes this suit particular. I like the detail in his handkerchief, but brown suits seem less interesting…
October 5, 2009 at 5:08 pm
A classic look — a bit too Brooks Brothers/East Coast for me personally. I also concur with an earlier poster — the hair needs to be as refined as the outfit. To the 'salon de coiffure' monsieur!

Classic and elegant!
October 5, 2009 at 5:36 pm
unbutton when you sit, no?
October 5, 2009 at 5:40 pm
BCBG, non plus.
October 5, 2009 at 6:21 pm
I think his hair style shows his character. With that suit he would end up looking stuffy with a more polished hairdo. He looks very approachable and I like that!

"Mary said… It is nice, but a little bit Pee Wee Herman"
…….Er no…..flood pants and drainpipes are pee wee herman…..this is how adult, real men dress
October 5, 2009 at 7:37 pm
HER HAIR IS GORGEOUS!! oh he is okay too.
October 5, 2009 at 8:16 pm
I really love this colour combination – brown and blue! It is sooo beautifull!
October 5, 2009 at 8:51 pm
Hi, like some one said, BCBG. ;)

This is how it is done indeed. Fiercely masculine regardless of trends.
October 5, 2009 at 9:09 pm
Sitting at Les Deux Magots or Cafe de Flore, you can watch the fashion go by. I learned a lot fashion tips from stylish Parisians.
October 5, 2009 at 10:49 pm
Absolutely darling. I love how he plays with polka dots.
October 5, 2009 at 11:13 pm
i strive for this kind of simple elegance

I'm fond of his tie.

An advertising for Hackett?
October 6, 2009 at 10:14 am
Wonderful! I stopped there last week with some of my friends to study and to people watch. where would one go this week if they would want to run into some fashion weekers?
October 6, 2009 at 1:03 pm
it wouldn't be half as good without the little mouchoir :-)
October 6, 2009 at 1:45 pm
He looks lovely!
October 6, 2009 at 2:05 pm
Very nice. Extremely classic and BCBG as others have written. I think the weather in Paris is just now becoming perfect for tweeds.
October 6, 2009 at 2:46 pm
A suit for fall, in Paris…
October 6, 2009 at 3:16 pm
He is a man wearing a suit rather than a costume. He is coloring within the lines, and doing it very well. Less "look at me" and more "this is who I am". He is truly inspirational — none of the elements is particularly striking, but the combination looks so carefully put together. The light brown is just the right color for right now with the blue, and it makes the rather prosaic tie look rich and warm by contrast — perfect.
October 6, 2009 at 5:21 pm
I would say so parisian a style
October 6, 2009 at 11:18 pm
The hair is a throwback to the 1940s… most American and Western European men had this cut at that time. (Look at old WW2 photos.) The haircut goes great with the timeless suit. I love it when the characters in a photo play to timelessness in a way where you couldn't tell if it's 1940 or 2010!

The pocket square is the daring piece.
October 8, 2009 at 9:09 am
Is he wearing some worn-out sneakers underneath…?That would really make him sympathetic.
October 9, 2009 at 8:58 am
Great! He looks like a young Christopher Isherwood. Or Michael York playing Isherwood.

Very English country gent – sharp, but too safe.
October 18, 2009 at 9:49 pm
This is my grandfather's look, and I mean that as a compliment. It is so difficult to find the ruggedly elegant suit that country gentleman used to wear (and by gentleman I do not only mean members of the gentry). As to Jack's comment about the sneakers, I do hope he was wearing something more poised.
January 7, 2010 at 8:09 pm
a wonderfully english look – superb!!

An Englishman in Paris?
