    Now this I like: inexpensive, serious-funny, uncontrived, smart. Did I mention hot?

    That pop of bright blue brings so much personality. He pulls off the hat as well.

    proof that its not all about screwball patterns, & a little bit of texture can save the day

    Metrosexual Grunge – these street scenes really make me miss NYC…

    he's a deadringer for Tom Waits don't you think?

    Cool look, very mismatched/thrift store/vintage chic. I like it.

    Utterly uncontrived, or else he's really fooling a lot of us – or at least me. Was he surprised that you wanted to shoot him?

    SO cool, the really clever part is making that blazer of that colour look so great by carefully choosing everything else. Not just anyone could do that.

    Love the shock of blue with an otherwise neutral outfit. Makes it striking.

    That blue is a great compliment to the range of browns/tans he has on otherwise. The color of that vest is nice, too.

    Inspiring. I'd absolutely wear this. (Though I need to learn pocket squares.)

    he looks great. but im not sure i can manage to match black and brown. so i'd have changed the shoes, because if he removes the handkerchief from the front pocket in the jacked and then let the briefcase rest i think the shoes won't work with the look anymore.

    Hard with a purpose, his gaze. He did not dress to impress, he always looked to the west for inspiration and smelled something in the air. Looking for his rosebud.

    Everything works together very well.

    The lighter jacket is surprisingly OK with the darker colors, probably because of shock of the turquoise.

    But none of this would register without the fedora. It its a fedora, isn't it? Or is the brim too slim?

    He looks like little bit from other century, but I like it. This combination of all parts of the clothes. :)

    THis is my favorite because he´s not trying that hard and handles the outlook just perfectly.
