    Again I say this with all the adoration in my heart – Asian men rules with confidence in their sense of style! Love the varied hues of blue in this man's wardrobe composition on a beautiful sunny day!

    I love the jacket. In every outfit, there should be colors that absorb light (darker) and at least one element that irradiates it. I dont think there is anything here that brightens up the outfit, I would have chosen a white or very light blue button-down, but that's just me. What are other readers thoughts on very structured briefcases that look very worn, as is the case here? Jorge from WPB

    Such a great look! This is all about the careful selection of color hues. The yellowish brown bag and shoes are such a beautiful contrast to the almost azure blue jacket. Very sensibly done!

    Too dorky and too Mao-ish for my taste. The picture reminds me of Chinese Cultural Revolution. He must be Chairman Mao's great great grandson.

    I'm seeing him a lot around east village with his crazy bike. He always looks good and charming.

    The thing that makes your pictures so different is the very special attention you are able to pay to the light. Great for these fashion shots because we can really see the buttons which pick up the shoes which pick up the tortoise shell glasses which pick up the satchel. Love it.

    That satchel, and in fact the entire look, are almost from a Tintin book. Which is to say that that this is almost timeless, and give or take a few details you'd be hard pressed to say which decade this man is from.

    This pic reminded me that I have a lovely, honey coloured Bree satchel that my parents gave me for Christmas in 1989. It's been resurrected for my Fall 2009. Thanks for the reminder!!!

    Color coordination is great, but the short sleaves, short waist, short trousers, short lapels and wacky hat make him look like a poor 9 year old made to wear the clothes from when he was 6.
