    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…..

    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.

    He is looks perfect, but he is not French non?

    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?

    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

    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.

    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!

    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…

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Is he wearing some worn-out sneakers underneath…?
    That would really make him sympathetic.

    Great! He looks like a young Christopher Isherwood. Or Michael York playing Isherwood.

    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.
