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 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.
beautiful; he looks very handsome. he looks very well put together, without trying. i doubt he really did try…which is the beauty behind any great look. naturally done. A bearded, dark haired man in a great hat/coat with a kerchief? Who can resist?
Great photograph, portrait quality. I love the hat, the coat, and especially the traditional "cowboy" handkerchief folded into the pocket. Great look, very sexy. I'm thinking Italian tonight. Love the softened foreground with all the color and the intensely dark young man behind. Fantastic!
Beautiful Photos! The expression this man is potraying allows the viewer the ability to describe the scene is so many different ways! What is he thinking about? Who is he looking at? Is he scared…happy?
Very nice in just about every way, barring my usual rant about the importance of good pressing. His coat lapels need a little work. But heck, I'd sit down with him and spend the afternoon going through that pastry selection.
He looks very dapper but am I too old in thinking a gentleman takes his hat off when seated inside? If he is a a counter, I understand, but I dislike men in hat indoors. What is the latest thinking on men's hat, Mr. Schulman?
I've been living in Italian for 2 years now and have only used Milan as a stop over on my way to France, but I will soon be spending a few days there! If there was ever a place to find info on the 'what's-what' of Milano it would be here! Question A. Where is this cafe, should I go? Ques. B. The fun shopping is where!?
Come on…no need to get og the hat and coat, he is just probably enjoying a quick, dark and short but intense italian espresso before going bakc to whatever he is doing (not a half-gallon Starbucks coffee you need an hour to drink…)P ;)
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!
