      Yes, a shot such as this reveals quite clearly the elegance of a particularly well cut suit. I’d like to know the designer (and if they do women’s!). The colours are understated but draw the eye. And what gorgeously chiseled features he has. I suppose his lean form works well with this suit’s structure.

    I love this study of his face-his ears, the lock of hair. This picture's not about the clothes–they're supporting players only. Love the out-of-focus colors and shapes in the background complementing this portrait.

    And just yesterday I commented about needing to wear one light-reflecting element. I stand corrected, this is a great outfit! I would love it even more if his long sleeves protruded an inch or so from his jacket cuffs. Jorge from WPB

    Not missing a button… both cuffs unbuttoned on last button… to show that they're real working buttonholes.

    His watch and the piping (?) on his shirt are great. But I do not like the color combo of the jacket, shirt and slacks. Love the stop light to his right.

    @Anonymous: indeed we have seen him before. Here, I think: http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/2149BrownBlkWeb1.jpg

    The old picture was, for my tastes, superior (both in terms of the clothes and the picture itself) but I am still enjoying the jutting lapels this feller seems to prefer.

    I couldn't decipher the maker of the watch but it looks like the real deal from the 20s or early 30s. could be Rolex or a LeCoultre. beautiful piece. whether it works or otherwise is irreverently irrelevant. it matches his overall style. well done.

    Classic styling. Like the whole brown/blue thematic. But jacket and pant pallets clash. The slim/delicate design of the watch compliments the structured look as well.

    you looked dashing at the Barney's book signing.

    I would find it enlightening to know what your subjects' professions are. I am suspicious that they mostly work in the fashion industry and therefore their jobs require that they sartorialize. I am hoping that a one word description of their chosen professions will prove me wrong.

    Amazing! He reminds me of young Fran├žois Truffaut, the look and deep dark eyes. Even more the right side of his face – due perhaps to the curl on his forehead.
    Great work as always, Sart! Thanks.

    The "Cartier Tank" inspired rectangular watches are definitely back in a big way. Mine had sat in a drawer for many years. Within the last year and a half, I had my watchmaker service it. Now it's back in regular use.

    VERY nice and crisp jacket
    I usually don't like peak lapels, but guys like this are starting to change my outlook on them, and make me consider it for myself- since it is good for shorter men

    I love the color of the jacket.

    I once bought a velvet cape of that same color in Morocco. It's a mesmerizing color because it's neither blue nor green. Calling it blue/green hardly does it's depths justice.

    I was told it's called Mediterranean blue. But should the world blue be in the name? On the boat from Morocco to Spain I saw that color in the sea.

    The taupe shirt with it is genius. any color that harmonizes with the hair usually is a genius move. "When in doubt, harmonize with the hair."

    His watch is elegant. Is it an heirloom? Really nice.
