    Ah, the guayabera shirt. Always a classic. And those pockets are amazing! I especially like the jaunty hat.

    Saigon retro style… the shirt fatigue pants persols under the hat.

    I expect to see him crouched buy the wall of the US embassy with teh Marine guards as he draws a .45 on a grainy black and white TV film.

    No. Army shorts should only be the realm of construction workers. I used to be one and they used to look good on me whilst toiling. Step out of a site and I used to don my bestest threads. There's a time and place for everything. Clearly the gentleman doesn't have a watch and is probably lost.

    I love looking at styles from all over the world, but being a native NY-er, i just love when you do the streets of NY. Always intriguing!

    Careful there my son don't let your fountain pen leak on your nice white Guayabera. That would be most tragic. Kind of urban meets island. Nice shot…

    Feeling the kerchief! Also comes in handy for the occasional face swipe down that is so necessary on these muggy NY summer days…. Come on you've done it!

    I also like the nifty pocket pen.. He looks like a man with a plan of sorts…. where is he off to? Hmm I'm intrigued.

    chief, hat, shades, pen, bracelet. two accessories too many.

    that said, the gaucheness of cargo shorts turn playful when smartly contrasted with a structured top.

    the hat and shirt nod toward a more dressed up summer look however, those shorts are in total disagreement and make the outfit much less special – not a well considered look.

    It's a great summer outfit and his accessories are just perfect. Wish I could see the bottom part of the outfit. Are these shorts or pants? Also wondering what shoes he's wearing.

    he looks like a slightly older version of my husband! very typical asian summer look. my spouse might have made the neckerchief a dash of color, though.

    The neckerchief is a nice touch.

    I have to say, after spending a few months at the Sartorialist, I started wearing one every so often. My wife likes it and, interestingly, older ladies smile at me and wave. It's like they are having a moment of historic recall.

    Thanks Scott.

    love the top half – not the cargo shorts. those and flip flops are so tacky in my opinion.
    love the little shot of pattern in the hatband. so sharp.

    ~effortlessly stylish. u can never go wrong with white tone aura on clothes, regardless of age and preference. i think what made the man noticeable is how he managed to accesorize paleness – from the details of the shirt, the pen on pocket, scarf, and the sytlish headgear.

    From the neck up he's rocking. He could be an extra from "What's Up, Tiger Lily". But, like an earlier poster said, the cargo shorts are not in keeping w/ the theme.
