    hahaha – great title! i like his bracelets. they don't look like a fashion accessory, they look like something he never takes off.

    Wow… he looks so suave. I love the top button up/no tie combination, and navy! Great!

    I love the clean lines of this outfit.

    I've got to say, though, the title made me a little disappointed – it kind of takes a mocking tone to the man's potential disability.

    It might not be easy but you can still look great while you are limping! He looks amazing!

    He looks great in this suit (colour is perfect), but I'm not convinced of the walking stick.

    I never see any bad comments on this blog. There are a few details of what he's wearing that I do like (the contrast of his leather bound agenda and the pocket square). But the fit of his double breasted jacket is to wide in the middle for my taste (unless its the shadow from the left arm casting unsightly proportions). Im hoping he's posing for the picture because if his normal posture is what's exhibited here, then he'll never look good in a suit jacket with the buckling of fabric behind the lapel. All in all I hope he has on some monk straps that match his agenda in hand. The walking stick makes his outfit costume-y, like he's TRYING to be cool.

    He looks great, which absolutely makes for a nice image. But if he doesn't need the cane it seems like such an affectation. Kinda undermines all the stuff that he's doing right, in my opinion.

    September 14, 2009 at 6:58 pm

    Say what you like…he looks phenomenal….great scruff…great accessories, I don't even care WHY he is carrying a cane…its sexy…and the color of the suit is perfect.

    Why is Josh limping? What type of sunglasses are those, anyone know?

  19. Daphne

    September 14, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    Your title made me actually laugh out loud. Mainly because the play on words works even better thanks to his posture! Love the bag, bracelet, angle of the sunglasses, lack of tie, tiny bit of pocket square, lapel size. I mean…just beautiful. Not to mention the colour of the suit.

    I'm in agreement with Mr Monocle. He does seem to try too hard to be hip. The buttoned top button with no tie is decidedly last week and frankly the rasta bracelet is disconcerting.

    September 14, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Well now that I know that I can say that he looks great and has a pretty stylish cane.

    I like the leather wrist straps with the suit. I've been doing this and it brings a bit of earthiness and a casual air to a more formal look. (I don't know, however, about the handbag, unless he's from Italy.)

  24. Adam

    pulls off the cane too well! such a rich colour for suiting, complemented by the leather diary and 'futurtistic sunnies'!

    i very often have to use a cane because of chronic gout. i'd love to find a cane that looks so good and can stand up to actual use. i don't mind his buttoned up shirt without a tie. the pocket square kind of makes up for the lack of tie. i hope his shoes match his bag/agenda thingy. that would really make this outfit sing.

    Lookin FRESH. I wonder what's up with the cane? It looks awesome as a fashion accessory but judging from his posture it looks like he actually needs it.

    To Montague, if you want to see the rest of his outfit, I have it on my blog as well from that day. I thought he looked rather cool and casual but I'll agree on the 90's width on the lapels……

    Great look, in blue navy you go everywhere. This all-buttoned-no-tie style makes him special.
    I really miss the shoes, though i can imagine it.
    My poor english prevents me to catch the play on words in the headline. Will someone help me?

    He looks well put together for a guy on a cane. His look is not overdone to contradict the fact that he has a limiting physicality (is that a word?) If he was dandy-ish looking the cane wouldn't be believable. Coordinated, minimilistic, tight, self contained…sweeeettt!

    This shot reminded me of an awful morning where I was forced to limp around NY for a day after injuring my foot. I had to resort to buying emergency crutches and birkenstocks. Though practical, neither item carried me along my shopping journey down 5th Ave with as much panache as this gentleman!

    Ya know, they're really bad over there at Mens about updating their In The Closet videos.

    Also, I find he always wears new stuff all the time. Just once, I want to see him sexy disheveled.

  76. Montague The Monocle

    September 17, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    @Marissa…canes for the purpose of an injured limb, sure. But in this instance, and this being solely a style blog, I believe Scott shot this as an acknowledgement of his cane as more of working accessory to his outfit, not as a temporary aid for his bipedal movement. I like the IDEA of his outfit, but the execution (even if his posture a direct result of his injury) still leaves little to be desired by The Monocle.

    @JFK Jean…Does this guy have on a special shoe for a hurt foot?

    Montague out.

    sexy guy! where was he when they filed Sex and the City?!

    love that fact that despite limping, it's more important that his inner strength outshines the outer limit. He oozes confidence. That reminds me of the cover shoot lady of "The SARTORIALIST" book.
