Really great portrait. He looks like some sort of deposed royalty. Its so good that this blog is more then just style. Although theres plenty of that too. I have no real thoughts on Tokio/Tokyo debate. Especially seeing how its not even the original alphabet of the word, I can’t imagine it matters. So Ill just stay out of that.
Such elegance! I love this mans expression. A picture really can speak a thousand words. His suit reminds me of something Emerngildo Zegna would produce. I also really love his tie!

Perfect. If more men dressed like this for business, we would never “misplace” $600Million of clients’ funds; it shows such understated self-respect, and, respect for others who will meet with him during the day.
You want to be his client, his colleague, his friend, his employee.
I enjoy your optimistic opinion Tom that because of how well he is put together and the image he projects that it couldn’t lead down a dark road, but I just had to comment because the major control frauds that have committed the worlds greatest financial scandals were able to do so BECAUSE of how well they could charm politicians and clients!
Of course just to reiterate I’m not in any way personally disparaging this man and his fantastic demure! The accounting fraud criminologist in me just felt obligated to leave a comment about the sad truth of how the worst people involved in various huge monetary implosions (simple example: the Savings and Loan crisis of the 1980s was really made possible by Charles Keating’s charisma and superman-like ability to lie in a way that ended up making the people he manipulated, while staring them straight in the eye acting as if he was nothing but integrity embodied, trust him more than ever and become unwitting participants in his scheme).
Apologies for the tangent, I just again feel it is important for people to take to heart a reminder about how control frauds operate and that judging a person by their well-styled cover is a risky thing to do!
Control frauds, politicians, anyone!
My little ramble made me think of the forever cemented image of Jack Abramhoff and the look he decided to wear on the day he left the courthouse. Personally, I wouldn’t have gone for the mobster costume the day I was going to learn how much time was forthcoming inside the slammer!
If this comment is judged to be unsuited to be posted and gets axed, I understand! No harm! It’s 98% public service message and 2% simple another general comment about the well put together outfit and photograph.
In fact, as some have noted above, there is NO controversy between “tokyo” vs. “tokio.” One is correct (the former), and one is incorrect (the latter). Period.
In Japanese, “Tokyo” is comprised of a two syllables and, in Hiragana, two characters– one of which is a diphthong: “to,” and “kyo.” “Tokio,” on the other hand, is three syllables and three characters “to,” “ki,” and “o”. The spellings are different, the pronunciations are different, and only one is correct in Japanese.
Just thought it would be good to thoroughly clarify a nonissue. :)
