    I love the lighting in this photograph.

    The colours of his shirt and bow tie are a mix of green and blue.
    You can't really tell which ones they are.

    Wow. He looks so lost, or worried, or intrigued… I love it. (And his bow tie)

    I have been a reader since the beginning—and used to contribute all the time to the endless discussions of Thom Browne. I have to say that I think this is by far the most artistic shot you have taken. Bravo.

    All thats missing is the black frame glasses and its Brad from the Rachel Zoe Project…men seem to have such limited fashion muses. Don't get me wrong, he's cute and all, I like the look, its just not very original and being done by every guy that considers themselves "fashion forward"

    If I was his mother I would have this photo framed and displayed in my living room. Great photography! It does't hurt that the subject is beautiful but you could make anyone appear appealing!

    Great picture!! His half-shaded face is a smart thought. I also love the sharp contrast of his face to the dulled focus of his shirt and bowtie. Again, great picture!

    Good portrait. I like when a different image creeps into the mix. I know the whole bent of this site is about on the street, candid fashion shots but this is really nice, too. Lots of soul.

    I'm not convinced this is it, but it gave me the same inspiration: what a delight – a velvet bowtie!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS shot.

    I remember a while back you said something about how a lot of the time when you see a man in a fedora he's wearing it in an ironic "look at me, I'm wearing an old-school hat! Aren't I whacky!?" way.

    That is how I feel about 95% of the men I see wearing bowties.

    I totally agree with one of the comments, the way the lights is hitting him, it splits him in two. Also like the comment said, because of the light it is hard to tell what colour is the tie and what colour is the shirt.
