    Nobody does it better. That shoe string makes me nervous – I hope he doesn't trip on it as it looks rather long. not sure about the facial hair….love the blues interacting with one another.

    Am I wrong in saying he seems to me a stylish version of Ned Flanders?

    Love the blues! Especially those amazing shoes. Such a simple shoe with a great color, changes it completely.

    BLUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. like the shoes the most. the striped shirt second most. is that a sweater around his neck? too maury povich makeover for my tastes but works for him i guess!

    I like whatever it is around Hamish's neck.

    However, the mustache adds about 35 years to his appearance.

    wow, that's a shockingly understated outfit for the usually 'peacock-like' Mr. Bowles.

    Very nicely done. subtle and spectacular.

    Wow, he is truly vibrant. The blues, the formal meets casual, his frames and a confident smile, which directed at you. Love it.

    Great photo, Sart. Mr. Bowles certainly loves blue, doesn't he? I love the vibrant blue of the jumper/shirt around his shoulders! I still think he looks like Jeff Foxworthy.

    It goes without saying mr Bowles is a stylish man.This time though, too much color co-ordination.

    If you think he looks good you should see his apt.

    considering the popularity of this blog i find it surprising to hear almost nothing but praise. people seem to think "sart shot it – must be good". i find that rather unfortunate. also i think posting mediocre outfits takes away from the people who really dress well and get their picture taken.

    This post makes me jealous of men, because their footwear can be amazing and unique and yet its never painful. Not fair. I own an array of flats but I never feel my best in them. He obviously feels pretty good in his!

    Respond to gals who doesnt like HB moustashe: –
    Did you ever try to kiss a man with them???

    - if you did, you have to know the difference from the kiss of clean shaved man, and you wont go for shaved one anymore…

    if not yet – it worth to try at least once!

    Hamish looks like Harold Nicolson with his moustache…a friend of mine's mother used to say "kissing a man without a moustache is like like eating an egg without salt"…

    How nice to see him smiling! He always looks rather serious when you've shot him before. I'm in awe of his pattern / color choices usually; this is very basic to me but he looks so happy I can't ding him for it.

    He once said in the Dutch magazine – denim special

    "DENIM? WOULDN'T BE CAUGHT DEAD"…….

    I wonder if he remembers this remark and I am pleased that he's finally given in and given his denim that public airing…..
