    Yes, I want to sit down to have a coffee and chat with this man. His hat looks ever so slightly feminine but the rest of his outfit balances it. And, I don't typically like turtlenecks on men but he wears it so nicely. Elegant and masculine. And the tattoo on his wrist…

    my own prejudice I admit, but are you a neatlty tailored kleen guy or a scruffy Grateful Dead guy? I know, I know some say you can be both but for me the contradiction is too strong. Boys under twelve can pull it off because we know their moms made them dress up.

    I love this! It's so well-photographed!

    I love guys in turtleneck sweaters, and I love this jacket. I love the details, like the cut of the lapel and the popped collar, and the front pocket. The blue and white of the handkerchief contrasts nicely against the neutrals he's wearing. Love the hat, too! Is it a fedora with the brim turned up?

    His facial hair is perfectly trimmed, too. Not out-of-control.

    Love it!

    The outfit is so casual yet put together Рperfect for this afternoon (?) setting. I especially like the detail of the pocket bandana, and the hat is a good choice for this man. However, since when is it polite to leave a hat on at a restaurant/caf̩, while drinking/eating? Maybe the rules are different in Italy, maybe it's time to re-define them.

    oh yes, my apologies – fantastic photograph, Mr. Schuman. i forgot to mention that in my last post, but that is the true mark of a great photograph, no? you lose yourself in the photograph and your imagination moves right into the moment. that said, props to the photographer and his stories!

    Chic yes, but a gentleman removes his hat indoors…..so it's contrived….

    I love the beard and the the hair and the hat… He looks just a tiny bit as a bum but there's no chance mistaking him.

    Love the coat! And I love the moment you captured…the cup almost touching his lips…anticipation frozen in an image.

    I think the parisian atmosphere of cosy cafes flanked by tiers of cupcakes and BEATIFUL men is great!

    Gentlemen, please, take off your hats when you go indoors (even if the hat is sooo cool) and your coats when you sit at a table. I think this is also part of being cool.

    Is it just me or does he kinda look like a more refined version of Russell Brand?

    His name is Lukas Haas, he's an American actor (Inception, Witness) and one of my personal hearthrobs for years and years. Good to see he's got some flare of his own!

    What is with you people and this stiff-lipped "indoor" manners you speak of? Rules are made to be broken. Think outside the box.
