    I can’t see the wild cat, only his delicate features! Very sweet.

    i have a strong strong aversion to leopard print anything and i think this looks outstanding! just unbelievably good.

    love the leopard tie – looks a bit out-of-place on him, but it works.

    Oddly, I didn’t notice the tie until last. The focus was on “mismatched black.”

    It’s so hard to bring two black pieces together. These two pieces are saved by the symmetry, though.

    And more than the tie are the bangles (is that what boys call their bracelets?)

    This look works well for him. This guy knows how to dress in a distinctive, unique style that fits him. In fact I find him amazing, I’d turn around to look at him if I saw him in the street.

    Another great pic, from the tie to the expression on his face, I love it from head to toe.

    This outfit would be very suitable for someone working in a fine restaurant.Even the mans haircut matches his clothes.

    He’s absolutely beautiful, reminds me of a younger Johnny Depp; charming photo!

    The one thing I’m not digging is the topstitching on the vest, but then contrasty topstiching is a pet peeve of mine. Otherwise, this looks wonderful (and I love the Johnny Depp thing he’s got going on).

    This guy is always right. His name is Bart and he is also a wonderful Les Hommes designer. Check out his work or simply look at him, looking back at you and looking fab in the meantime.

    his stoic gaze in contrast to such a wild print makes for interesting parallels. one of my favorite photos yet!

    I can’t believe I’ve never seen a leopard print tie before – it’s a revelation! Especially in the understated, even restrained context of the rest of his outfit.

    He must be fun. The contrast between the leopard print and his extremely gentle and refined demeanor, not to mention the rest of his outfit, is touching and funny. A would-be leopard, if only he could stop being sensitive all the time. :)

    This is Prada from last Fall, I believe. I have this tie also.

    I also wear it with more traditional colors and cuts, say, a navy, pin strip, 3-button suit with a white shirt. The animal print and width of the tie have so much character that the rest of the outfit can be lo-key.

    Love his vest, also.

    Sort of reminds me of a Johnny Depp type style. Is there a Johnny Depp type style?

    I like the vest- lapels on a vest that’s an original.

    But the look is bad, like bar tender at rain forest cafe bad.

    Try shooting a pocket square in a waistcoat. That looks good. Waistcoat and shorts is a good look too.

    I’m quite curious, how can a guy look good without dressing up this much, especially as it is summer. Down the page you’ll see countless sundresses and t-shirted women. What’s the equivalent for men, I don’t believe its a vest or a pair of high waisted trousers.

    Bartender at rainforest bad? Oh, to meet that bartender in a rainforest.. he probably converses amusingly.

    The whole construct works for me, well described by others already. Very cool.

    this photo is the funniest i have ever seen on your website – in the best way possible. this guy clearly has a wonderful sense of humor. and the look on his face is so serious, so deadpan – i’m dying here. i love it! one of the most sophisticated uses of wit and humor in an outfit that i’ve ever seen.

    His looks remind me on John Galliano, just that JG would never wear this. Either waistcoat to tight (especially under the arms) or pants too baggy. Animal print tie on such a boring shirt does not make it for me, even that his sleeves are rolled up. Besides, what is the appropriate size of rolled up sleeves? Showing the ellbows? I don´t think so …

    the poor guy needs a long and good nights sleep it seems. But a nice outfit and it feels very appropriate to him as a person.

    yeah, the pants do seem a bit full, and I’m not a big fan of contrast stiching but the tie really makes the look–and I excised every last drop of animal print from our house formery owned by Carrie donovan.
