So sharp and well-tailored. The sunglasses are minimal and on-point. But the pairing of the striped orange shirt with the camo cargo pants is something I haven’t seen. And that fan is very fun! If I had to pick, I like #1 the most.
Is it the same person? They look a bit like each other, but on the other hand, not. Love the first picture! Looking away, with his sunglasses & the suite. And on the second picture, with the little detail.
The contrast is huge so a comparison is almost impossible. The first look screams elegence and the other casualty. But I do prefer a more tailored look (especially when paired with cool vintage sunglasses) because it reminds me of gentlemen.
For me, the first guy is nearly perfect. Every detail is just right…nice lapel, interesting white shirt, pocket square, great hair, nice glasses, etc. The second guy looks like Willem DaFoe cross dressing between Platoon and Miss Saigon. If you look like an escapee from a spoof movie set, you’re trying too hard. But, he does have guts.
I never wear shorts in the city. Shorts are for doing something active, not walking around with your man fan. And camo shorts have even fewer legitimate uses. I think the point is demonstrated aptly here.
Two men,–one sober, the other almost impish–each beautiful in his own way. But although I admire the manner in which the second man workss his shirt with his camo pants, I prefer the man in the top photo. Because I love a mandarin collar–if for no other reason than it’s a great excuse to skip the ubiquitous tie.
Wow! Two very different approaches to personal style yet they look equally appealing to me – and equally masculine! Even with floral fan in hand he’s pulling it off! I am really digging the older men these days… HOT!
I would never ever wear number 2 but he looks damn good to be honest, I would certainly look at him in awe but would never try it. Number one is something I would aspire to look like. It’s a different approach to aging well.
ITS THE SAME GUY!!!!! He is just wearing two different outfits? Seriously. Especially the people saying how you think “one” of “them” is so much more stylish then the “other”. Good to know someone can fool most of you by changing one’s shirt.
Not to be fooled. The top bro is also very aware ….. And the look is almost too composed to be considered natural. Almost as if he is on a photoshoot.
No.2 …. Perhaps not my style but at least he is rockin his own thing. It’s original, and there is something to be said for that.
A tan suit that is well fitting, paired with a nice white shirt is also classic, but not so much different than what i see daily in any well dressed city in the summer months.
No, these are not photographs of the same guy! Look at the length of hair: #1 short cropped all over, #2 much longer. And while it’s difficult to tell exactly from this angle, it does appear that #2′s sideburns have a reverse taper (Like…Mr. Spock?). #1′s sideburns are traditional.
The first shot is the winner for me–cool, sophisticated, confident. And the khaki suit and white shirt work very well with his gray hair, making him actually look younger. That pocket kerchief is a great detail to finish off his look.
Look 1 scores a 10, handsdown! He is handsomely stunning in that suit with the fresh, clean white accents! However, Look 2 scores a meager 4, and that’s pushing it in my books! Camouflage isn’t something that can pulled off so easy, and the moment you pair it with men’s cargo shorts, you enter dangerous grounds! I can appreciate attempting to mix and match vibrant colors and patterns, but this look is not doing the mix-and-match ANY justice! The grey-orange button down is a nice piece in itself, but it’s beauty is utterly taken away by the combination with the shorts. Shall I mention the fan???
Do people actually think it is the same guy?! Weird. He has a different face, different lips, different ears, different hairline. The second gentleman….just too good. The acme of femininity is a fan, camouflage shorts are the very embodiment of a gritty masculine ideal. He has taken two stereotypes and demolished them!
Well, there is fashion and there is style and both gents have both qualities.
But I must say Gent #2 looks like a person I’d want to know, to spend an afternoon with sipping iced tea and discussing world views.
Gent #1 looks like someone I would be a bit scared to meet in person. Sometimes you can be a bit too sharp…
