    A sexy man! weee!
    Love the layaring, the open shirt (difficult to do) and his pose. Very masculine and very relaxed. This how casual should look!

    Plenty atttitude to this dude, but it helps his look, even in the very trendy slim cut thin jeans.Very cool.

    Nearly bald dudes + big sunglasses = winner every time.

    Perfect layering.. especially love the short jacket over the cardigan.

    Great look, plus I love a guy who can work with a hairline challenge — this guy’s doing it right.

    P.S.- Picked up the new GQ featuring The Sartorialist yesterday! Yay you!

    A little too much trying, I’d say. And the bod’s not quite right for the jeans. Or vice versa.

    i agree. so glad it’s fall and time to layer again.

    if someone described this outfit to me, i would think “boring!”, but the way he wears it… the details, the collar, the vest, the belt, and his best accessory… that gorgeous face!

    Great jacket! Helps make the look complete.

    Perfect in every way! If I lived in NY, I’d be asking you for his number. ;-)

    love every single thing about it…except the exposed chest hair…but hey, he’s sexy so he can get away with it.

    is that a little cuff protruding from the edge of his left sleeve? if so, well played sir!

    When you take a picture from the knees up, is it because the sitter’s (or should I say stander’s) shoes are subpar?

    It’s been a bit warm here for all those layers. Look at that bare arm in the background. Didn’t you say you got peeved when you saw someone shitting their pants over their new jacket or coat or whatever busting it out way too soon?

    I agree with Butch…and he seems a bit too old for such a look?

    I’d love to see what footwear he has gone for…very important to the overall look!

    a bit pushed and to be honest nothing really to be reported. it’s more the attitude than the look..

    My hands want to lay down the collar and button one or two buttons of the shirt. As it is now, this outfit looks far too much show-off for me.

    Thanks :-)

    Perhaps it’s just my romantic mood, but don’t you think this guy and the blue+black lady would look good together? They somehow fit, in their effortless coolness.

    Well, thanks to this blog, I have concluded that black women in New York have no style. While this seem completely counterintuitive to me, I must thank you for the illumination.

    its a good look but not on him, i think layering looks best on slimmer age is an issue, you dont want to be that “old guy or old chick” thats trying to look young..its too obvious. replace the jacket with a camel wool or light tweed blazer and he’ll look more sleek and his age.

    Looks like your older, taller, bulkier brother, Scott!

    i really wish he would button up that shirt. Otherwise, he would look perfect.

    Your blog makes me really happy and inspired, I love watching real people looking fantastic in that real-life way.

    It’s the kind of thing that makes you feel it’s worth the time and effort put into defining ones own personal style, you know?

    He looks great here but the first thing I thought of was “this guy probably keeps those sunglasses on at night too.”

    wow very cool. Must show this to my husband. I’ve never been a great fan of the very skinny jeans on most people (guys or gals), but this guy has pulled it off with this look.

    Open shirt is a no-no. The same with the ‘standing’ collar, my hands want to lay it down. Trying too hard is never, never ok on a man.

    Otherwise he’s fine.

    Well, that’s a really really good look. The only thing… I only like decollĂ©tage on women. I don’t think he’s too old for it or anything. (Old? Duh, ridiculous.) I just prefer to do the unbottoning myself. It leaves something to imagination. As for the rest, well done.
