He looks like a crazy sailor :)
September 23, 2009 at 7:22 pm
More proof that there is nothing more stylish than character and a genuine smile.
September 23, 2009 at 7:24 pm
This guy always makes me happy!

Is this the same guy referred to as "On The Street – Perfect"?
September 23, 2009 at 7:48 pm
Great photo. The handle of his bag is awesome. It's in tatters.

He is like the father christmas of Ralph Lauren…I work in the Bleecker Street boutiques and his store visits are SO eagerly anticipated. He's truly a legend in the vintage world..brilliant at what he does.
my vintage military watch article was inspired by the man himself:http://howtoaskartists.blogspot.com
I love this man, and all of the photographs you have taken of him, Scott!
He always makes me smile…
…he sort of looks like the lost member of Coldplay in this outfit.
I betcha Coldplay would be a better band if he was indeed a lost member ;)
Always love a man in uniform!

It's Ernest Hemingway's kooky cousin twice removed!
September 23, 2009 at 8:08 pm
I love how happy he looks, it puts a smile on my face. And the jacket… that's gold.
September 23, 2009 at 8:12 pm
Why the blazer of course!
September 23, 2009 at 8:37 pm
Yes yes yes yes yes
September 23, 2009 at 8:45 pm
Great photo! Love his attitude and jacket.
September 23, 2009 at 8:53 pm
Doug is the BEST! the nicest man and such a visionary!!!
September 23, 2009 at 9:05 pm
I love how his personality is what makes this. I also love the peace sign. :P He's wearing the clothes, they aren't wearing him.

completely agree with the Hemingway observation.. I'd love to see what kind of bag/satchel/murse he's got. Or rather, what's IN in…
September 23, 2009 at 9:34 pm
He does look like a sailor. That was my first thought before I opened the comments. He looks like some captain of a boat. haha. He is cool and confident, like he came outta some old novel!
September 23, 2009 at 10:20 pm
Now you're having fun!! And so do we! Thanks for all the diverse and wonderful photography!
September 23, 2009 at 11:09 pm
He looks like a sailor.. or a pirate!Love the jacket :)
September 23, 2009 at 11:27 pm
I like the finer details, the scrappy bag strap, the sliver cuff and ring, speaking ho bo sophistication
September 23, 2009 at 11:31 pm
amazing smile :) its hard to be genuinely that happy
September 23, 2009 at 11:38 pm
I love seeing someone with style completely their own who's not one of the usual 20-somethings. Good style doesn't have an expiration date, and this man proves it! Love his smile too. He must be great to work with… lucky Lauren staff!
September 23, 2009 at 11:46 pm
I know he's really a nice guy, but I can't help cracking up at Wikifashion's comment.
September 23, 2009 at 11:59 pm
Talk about exuberant!!! He has what the whole world needs…LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
September 24, 2009 at 12:17 am
LOVE IT!! He has an air of happiness surounding him!
September 24, 2009 at 12:21 am
the best dude ever, so happy every time i see his pictures.
September 24, 2009 at 12:29 am
I have a jacket just like that , but he is a higher rank than myself. After seeing this pic I pulled it out to make sure it still fits (and it does) …..as always, I thank you for the inspiration
September 24, 2009 at 12:48 am
yeah like a crazy sailor!Love the coolness and the jacket of course!
September 24, 2009 at 1:06 am
Doug's a genius.
September 24, 2009 at 1:13 am
Killer smile!would love to meet this interesting happy man when i'll be working in show in NYC!
September 24, 2009 at 1:36 am

Fantastic – his happiness is contagious – and I love the contrast between that lush jacket and the hand-made quality of the leather strap across his body.
September 24, 2009 at 4:12 am
This photo made my morning. I love his style ^_^ It's so much fun. And he's so happy. I can't help but smile :)
September 24, 2009 at 4:20 am
great contrast – string bag, brass buttons.
September 24, 2009 at 4:37 am
he really looks like a real happy sailor, lost in the city since 2 or 3 days, without a wink!
Anyway, his jacket is stunning and I really like the strap of his bag………

Kudos for the photograph and bonus points for the gentleman's age and countenance. Other than that, one makes his/her own fashion.
Greetings from London.
September 24, 2009 at 6:00 am
Ahoy, me hearties… Yarrr… I be scrapin' the bottom of me barrel for me last doubloons. The lass at RL charg'd me four pieces for the jacket but I got three left in me pocket. Shiver me timbers… Yarrr… Now I be looking like a gentleman o' fortune and right scallywag fit for swashbucklin' ye sprogs on the high seas. YARRRR!!!
September 24, 2009 at 6:44 am
haha. love the joy in this picture. his style is interesting. the bandanna/neckcover adds a nice touch.
September 24, 2009 at 7:06 am
Now with this beautiful fellow ofgood spirit and good will, we would saunter for sure~!
September 24, 2009 at 7:41 am
Such a contrast to the photo that follows his…..
September 24, 2009 at 7:46 am

September 24, 2009 at 7:56 am
I love his smile!

September 24, 2009 at 9:56 am
SEEMS A MOVIE MAN! .. LOVE HIS JACKET. AND STYLE.

Now this guy I like, not to mention his jacket and (?)bandana!
September 24, 2009 at 11:08 am
It's always a delight to see this gentleman. His light really shines doesn't it ?
September 24, 2009 at 12:24 pm
now this is an interesting outfit. he looks fantastic. happy, comfortable and different.
he's exactly what the recently featured "try hards" are hoping to be.
September 24, 2009 at 12:39 pm
I'm not going to lie…I never seem to understand the man who seems slightly unkempt hygienically and yet dresses so well. Someone solve the mystery for me?

September 24, 2009 at 1:03 pm
Oh, this is wonderful!
I wonder what this fabulously dressed man does all day? He clearly loves it, whatever he is. Such joy!
His double breasted blazer is perfect.
September 24, 2009 at 1:10 pm
i love people who actually wear their clothing and let it become a part of them. i get so tired of looking at near perfect specimins of human kind in ads. i love seeing what real people do and it inspires me to continue to make my wardrobe a reflection of my personal story.
September 24, 2009 at 1:12 pm
He looks like a pirate, but has a great demeanor!
September 24, 2009 at 1:36 pm
Divine – it doesn't get better than this!
September 24, 2009 at 3:13 pm
My girlfriend says this is how I will look in 30years. She doesn't realise it is more like 20.This is the RL chap? He is front and centre at the Spring 2010 RL show. Kind of blended in as well.
September 24, 2009 at 3:26 pm
I really love Doug's look. He always is so inspiring… I also like that his name is also Doug. Obviouley he knows whats up…. Wonderful photograph, refreshing and honest. Good work.
September 24, 2009 at 4:14 pm
soon you´ll have a whole chapter of photos of this very stylish gentleman, who i´m sure has a few great stories to tell!
September 24, 2009 at 5:13 pm
Is that bag a billum from Papua New Guinea?
September 24, 2009 at 5:27 pm
Luckely, I have exactly the same jacket, the brand is Comme Ca de Halles Paris:) Good luck finding it since my mother bought it in paris 20 years ago:P
September 24, 2009 at 6:50 pm

September 25, 2009 at 5:23 am
does anyone else think of captain shotover from heartbreak house (george bernard shaw)?
September 25, 2009 at 8:33 am
style style style now he's an individual. getting tired of so many people dressing alike.
September 25, 2009 at 11:58 am
A look that certainly carries a story behind, great!

September 25, 2009 at 4:13 pm
Wow, I absolutely love everything about this man.
September 25, 2009 at 7:21 pm
Fun. I think one of the things missing sometimes from those who go to fashion week is the pure joy of really just putting things together, and not be so self conscious. After all, that's the epitome of style, isn't it?
September 26, 2009 at 2:08 pm
September 27, 2009 at 4:20 pm
after weeks adrift on the open sea, the captain is finally rescued.
September 28, 2009 at 1:38 pm
All of us here at Ralph Lauren are so glad to have such a talented and amazing man on out team! Doug is an icon!
September 28, 2009 at 10:18 pm
From what corner of our great nation would such a patriotic muse call "home"?
November 18, 2009 at 1:17 am
I feel that the world's a better place just looking at his smile!
