A Favorite Gentleman

I shot this gentleman at the flea market a few months ago, I saw him again this weekend and he was no less elegant. I love the critter cords.

    When will the Burberry scarf invasion end? Why does everyone wants to wear one single tartan pattern/color around their neck?

    Quality scarves are available in hundreds of different tartans, and for usually less than a Burberry.

    May God protect us if the chav pattern invades this continent.

    Other than that, he looks good.

    I’m willing to bet that guy’s owned that scarf for 30 years.

    Um, the “chav pattern” of Burberry arrived here years ago. When I was in school in Boston, all the trust fund girls had ‘em.

    And yes, I agree heartily with shoreman1782.

    Anonymous 5:07pm… Critter cords are corduroy pants that are embroidered with…for lack of a better word…critters…whales, ducks…sometimes tennis rackets. J. Crew has them…but this guy did not get them there. Trust me on that one.

    Is it my imagination or does he have pennies in those loafers?

    I think he looks very stylish. As for the Burberry, I agree with those who say he has most likely had the scarf for a couple of decades – it wasn't always a chav accessory.

    Well done that man for holding onto his burberry and not giving in to anti-chav snobbery! This is a true free thinker of fashion. Fabulous duffle coat too.

    Love your stuff but so many of your shots show people smoking. If you really love their style, why not try to keep them around a bit longer by getting them to butt out?
