    How relaxing, with his book in hand. He needs a hammock! I love how the white in his beard stands out like silver lining.

    As a New Yorker, I know what the temperature has been like these past few weeks, and yet this gentleman looks completely cool and relaxed.

    You just can beat wearing all white in the Summer . . .

    First, his shoes are so interesting. They mesh with his feet. The color is so similar to his skin-tone. They also look like they're leather, which gives them even more of a skin-effect.

    His outfit over all uses blunt, clean, modern coloring that could suck the humanity from the outfit in it's over-cleanliness and modernity, but doesn't because of the WRINKLES! I think wrinkles are important. They remind you that clothes need to take on function like old men who show they've lived long lives through their wrinkles.

    Beautiful. Wonderful. Summery.

    You must have been having a 'yellow' day. This gentleman and the gent in Andi & Jordan are carrying something yellow! What a great look, not too wrinkled, smart all white, great shoes, great hat, even a white watch band. Smooth!

    Yes. So great. Casual white on dark skin–nothing better. The neutral co-ordinated hat, shoes and glasses whether deliberate or not works so well. His expression matches the casualness of the outfit–so refreshing to wake up to.

    I think he's perfect, tip to toes. I especially love those shoes for the way the tops blend into his skin so you only really notice the soles – like a layer of cream. Whether the shirt and shorts are linen or cotton you know they have to be a natural fiber and I bet they are as comfy as pjs. Way to go, Mister, you look great!

    Linen shirts, shorts, trousers like this will feel fresh all day and into the night. I wear them traveling in opressive heat and never feel like I MUST change. It BREATHES. You can find them in many colors-pastels,etc. My wife steals them for beach cover-up and sleeping! Great look,nice shoes.

    I love the color feeling in this shot: the crisp whites against the black-green of the trees and the way the pavement is divided into zones of lighter and darker gray. This gentleman has a poetic quality that adds to the feeling that this could be a painting.

    Wow! Those shoes are my sister Eleanor Grosch's design when she did some work with Keds. They're the Birds of Prey series for Men. The pair he's wearing has a hawk engraving in the leather. I have a pair of those myself! They're awesome!!

    He understands dressing for hot weather.

    White or light colors, light weight material, loose fitting clothing, hat, comfy shoes (look a little hot, sandals would be better) and THE BOOK. Such a "real" outfit, not just style without substance or context. Would love to talk to him.

    Once again, the essence of a person, caught on film. Wonderful!
