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

Ah! A completely wearable summer outfit. I have never been able to pull off the hankie around the neck but it works for him. Great picture! Jorge from WPB

I like his hat but I'm not sure about the shirt….
August 20, 2009 at 10:05 am
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.

Love it! pen in pocket, the bracelet shows a different side than his clothes. and the tie…. so rad!

Cool chap! If my grandfather were still alive today, this is how he would dress. http://rafeloves.rafe.com

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…
August 20, 2009 at 10:30 am
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.

@Brixsmithstart said….. Ahh the sexy urban dentist, I am smiling already!
August 20, 2009 at 10:36 am
he looks quite comfortable in his skin. I love the combination
August 20, 2009 at 10:39 am
August 20, 2009 at 11:00 am
Looks like he's just tryin' to beat the heat. Love it.
August 20, 2009 at 11:05 am
He looks soooo coooool
August 20, 2009 at 11:06 am
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.
August 20, 2009 at 11:09 am
Hmmm I'm not feeling the shorts. Sweet hat though.
August 20, 2009 at 11:14 am
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.
August 20, 2009 at 11:15 am
There is something appealing about a white shirt and khaki pants in Summer.
August 20, 2009 at 11:31 am
ah, looking at him makes me feel cooler (temperature wise) already!
August 20, 2009 at 11:33 am
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.
August 20, 2009 at 11:52 am
i like the personal way he's styled that shirt. i've never seen a guayabera shirt made so stylish.
August 20, 2009 at 11:58 am
Anyone know where to get a nice guayabera in NYC?
August 20, 2009 at 12:28 pm
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.
August 20, 2009 at 12:35 pm
i would wear the hat without the sunglassesits a bit too much!!
the rest looks perfect on him
August 20, 2009 at 1:45 pm
Yay for guayaberas! Love them!
August 20, 2009 at 1:49 pm
Wow, what a badass.
August 20, 2009 at 1:55 pm
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.
August 20, 2009 at 2:01 pm
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.
August 20, 2009 at 2:37 pm
Living in the Caribbean I wear guayaberas all the time but I wonder if I look that cool!
August 20, 2009 at 2:49 pm
loving the hat sir.
August 20, 2009 at 2:52 pm
This gentlemans is showing a very smart way to dress in this torrid weather, without losing elegance.Sharp!
August 20, 2009 at 3:18 pm
how i love new york !!
August 20, 2009 at 3:22 pm
August 20, 2009 at 3:39 pm
Now that's just cool….
August 20, 2009 at 3:49 pm
guayaberas are my summer top pick! They have almost replaced my polo's, glad to see not just us latin folk wear them.. too classy!
August 20, 2009 at 3:50 pm
his hat is awesome & the scarf is dead cute!

The pen accent is great here. Love the care free effortlessness.
August 20, 2009 at 4:34 pm
Ugh. Cargo shorts. Really?!?
August 20, 2009 at 5:08 pm
I love the hat!
He does look cool in this heat though.
August 20, 2009 at 5:30 pm
Love his shirt- and even the pen in the pocket is so effortlessly stylish
August 20, 2009 at 6:29 pm
ah… this guy makes me happy, just perfect!
August 20, 2009 at 7:08 pm
Great combination, that's style!
August 20, 2009 at 7:40 pm
That shirt is so coolll
August 20, 2009 at 8:09 pm
My copy of your book has arrived in the mail today. I'm so excited to see it. Thank you very much for your beautiful and inspiring photos.
August 20, 2009 at 9:44 pm
Papi in his guayabera, I love it!
August 20, 2009 at 10:34 pm
Actually,reminds me of Old Havana…Smiles.
August 20, 2009 at 10:53 pm
SIMPLY GORGEOUS.. LOVE HER BOW!!
August 20, 2009 at 11:04 pm
white shirt always timeless, i want it :)
August 20, 2009 at 11:05 pm
Where my Mother is from, Panama, we call this the Panamanian shirt. Comfortable and great for the hot weather. My Uncles wear these shirts all the time.
August 21, 2009 at 2:58 am
He could be a nice guy from Pahoa,wearing his going-out-shirt and best slippers just going to catch a flick at the Akebano Theatre.
August 21, 2009 at 3:24 am
it's so refreshing to see that people at his age still care about fashion… it's fashion art… he looks cool, literally and "fashionally"…
August 21, 2009 at 4:09 am
Sorry, not feeling this one at all!The shorts are nasty, there's too much going on with the accessories and I have to admit I'm not a fan of the shirt either!
August 21, 2009 at 5:20 am
wow! style on its highest level…
August 21, 2009 at 5:29 am
Wow Nice Blog. I liked it.
August 21, 2009 at 6:26 am
HOTT new blog guys…Check it out
August 21, 2009 at 9:20 am
Good photo – I can almost feel the cold coolness of the crisp white shirt.
Neckerchiefs look cool and are so practical, wish more fellas would wear them:)
August 21, 2009 at 9:42 am
~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.
August 21, 2009 at 10:24 am
That shirt is fantastic!
August 21, 2009 at 12:07 pm
The Guayabera shirt is a classic that will never go out of style, if a man knows how to wear it. I love it.

Don't have to much to say about this one, as I can see from the comments your audience is torn on their opinion. I think the photograph is nice, but mostly, I just really like the hat :)
August 21, 2009 at 3:58 pm
He looks so smooth!
August 22, 2009 at 11:08 am
He looks cool and comfortable in a casually chic way.
I grew up in Texas and Mexico, and my grandfather had an amazing collection of guayaberas.
August 23, 2009 at 10:20 pm
I think he's sporting a great summer time look~I adore his hat it has a cool quirky shape, I would love to have one just like it. He has great style going on
August 24, 2009 at 8:37 am
wow ! what a blog
August 24, 2009 at 11:10 pm
I like the pictures of the men best on your blog when you visit. You must be a magnet for individuals.

i'm still trying to get the tied scarf look down properly. still trying to tie the scarf properly, one. lol. old ladies do it the best, though, and coordinate it quite lovely… so i've seen.
August 28, 2009 at 9:20 pm
<3 this. reminds me of my lolo. :)
August 31, 2009 at 2:12 pm
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.
September 2, 2009 at 7:47 am
love the mix.
