    (although the heading should be "Monochrome" (to do with colour) rather than "Monotone" (to do with sound)…)

    I love the cut and the monotone, the way his scarf is tied and the popped collar. but i can't help but notice the material of the coat, it screams cheap. Its something you would find on a mid-priced brand jacket. compromise on price and you compromise on quality of material, and that's exactly what we find in this photo. Maybe if the gentleman bought ray ban specs instead of the tom fords in his front pocket, he would have had money left to purchase a similar sharp coat from a maker that uses better fabric.. mm just food for thought.

    nice that european men don't feel the need to colour their hair and allow the grey to show naturally.

    are those persols tucked in his coat pocket?

    Haha, I've been learning Italian for two years now and I have the most random pronunciation mistakes because of my Italian overdose. I took a while to come to terms with you having written 'Monotone' because I thought you had written 'Mono-tow-ne' and I was like, "Wait, that doesn't mean anything in Italian"!

    The monotone colour is definitely offset by the various textures/materials of his clothing. Not to mention the striped shirt peaking out from behind his coat collar. His expression also conveys that there is something more behind the man himself.

    I have to agree with the earlier commenter who said this picture isn't really about the clothes.

    I find it interesting that so many people are affected by this looking straight to camera shot of an elegant man who appears to be at the intersection (zenith?) of experience and virility. His craggily handsome, well-lived in face and the full head of salt and pepper hair is VERY sexy.

    I wonder how he will look in five years time? For right now though this picture is arresting, and I'm not immune…

    OMG google his name you get his pic from your site, Sart, 3-4 years ago – he looks SO much better now! Maybe its not just the cragginess, the salt and pepper hair, the cool navy not-try-hard look, its the look he gives us too – he knows more, he's lived, it hasn't all gone well perhaps but who cares – he's a better man for it :-)

    I’ve been admiring this fellow since Scott’s first book. He’s so attractive. i find his style appears to be Just Right, in that it’s not too self-absorbed, but elegant, sharp, relaxed and… masculine.
