My god that is my father reincarnated. I have the receipt for the doppelganger of that coat L.Nichols Esq in account with Pope & Bradley Savile Row To D.B Camel Ulster Â£37.50 Dec 19th 1949 The gentleman even looks like my father and the gloves are the same the only difference is that my father would never have worn his scarf like that but quietly crossed over and tucked in.
Timeless. Those shoes cannot be less than 10 years old, and yet they look great on him. The only tiny little thing I would change would be the gloves, for a slimmer version, also in leather. Jorge from WPB
Loving the color story here. warm, earthy and the camel coat slightly contrasted by cognac gloves. At least we had a slight reprieve this morning and it *felt* a little warmer. I miss my walk to 40th + 5th – I miss all the great fashions of the morning go- the subway will do for now during this cold weather
wonderful ! and in spite of the classic elegance of the style he ( or perhaps the picture ?:) has a wonderful touch of earthy urban magic …vive l' oxymoron in writing as in life (style) !! Conc in Berlin
The epitome of classic style. Only blot on the landscape, his pocket is too full and will ruin the shape. What is in there anyway? All he should need is a pocket hankerchief (in an inner pocket of the coat or jacket or trousers underneath) and a slim wallet surely? Anything more should be housed in a small attache case or document holder or briefcase.
Great look and the hat adds a touch of whimsey. It is clear that this gentleman pays attention to his look. Everything is just so and his shoes look well cared for. The only hiccup that I can see is that his trousers need just a tad more length but I guess that is just a personal preference. Scott the photos are great please keep it up.
I disagree. I do like the hat on him but i think he has a lot of other things going on. The shoes are great, the jacket is awesome. And he complimented the look with gloves and a scarf. He just looks very polish, impeccable. Plus he's very tall, it's like his presence demands attention.
Lookee here, Scott. I've been a DIE-HARD follower of your blog since around Oct 05. You were fresh, exciting, a welcome oasis to the staid men's rag magazines. Composition-wise, your photos are still stellar, but the blog has evolved away from the energy it used to have regarding authentic men's style. Gone are the interviews, profiles, personalities, et cetera and so on of the men who weave the fabric of every day life & the blog is littered with the same BS that you see everywhere—is this a reflection of your influence? Of course it is & hat's off to you for your influence. But, we don't care that you have a great double-breasted topcoat in Paris accompanied by the phone to your ear ("what sort of deal is he making? L'Uomo Vogue, Russian GQ or is he simply checking his credit card balance?"), we don't care that your romance has sparked with a French fashion blogger/illustrator (whose blog is incredible, but the fact that you divorced your wife & hooked up with Garance…a trite cliched, don't you think?), and Australia? What. Ever. Please, please return to what you used to be: a vibrant voice, a volcano…a bandana-cum-pocket square neatly placed on a five thousand dollar coat. We need you. Signed, A-Loyalist-To-A-Point
I know you're not a matchmaker, Scott. BUT . . . this man seems to beckon me, and I think I need to answer the call! Do you have his contact information? He is a true dapper Don, but is he single? Is he straight? Is he searching? If yes to all of the above, please let him know that, although I didn't meet him romantically — on some enchanted evening across a crowded room (as I'd have liked), I did meet him on the world-wide web on a crisp and cold evening here in Boston. That's 21st-century romance, dapper Don! E-mail me and love me! (That's the sequence of events I predict for Dapper and me.)
He was smart to put the green and the red around his face. If he had the camel too close to his skin, it would have washed him out. I have the same problem with these earth tone colors in winter. And what's not to love about grey and camel, a beautiful combination.
It"s all about his figure,his class and surely about the hat and the nice color of shoes..He is a gentleman, i think!That's why the hat looks not sily but modern and gives a hint of an artistic look of appearence.. By the way, i can't stop looking at your picture taken in Paris..You are S E X Y..
The "green hat" captioned would certainly be a "loden" hat, made from a hatting weight version of the wool and alpaca blended weave that one might still see in some Austrian or Italian coats. The "loden" green is the traditional Tyrolian color.
Makes a very warm and rain and snow repellent hat and is a perfect compliment to the casual style of the camel hair polo coat worn in town and which, Ralph, as most of you know, did not invent.
Magnificent…at first, I thought it was Stephen Drucker of House Beautiful, but no. Can we give this to every man on the East Coast and say This, This is what one should look like. Enough with the trash, one should have elegance!
mmmm! very nice…. I do wonder though what goodies he has in his coat pocket. On the "Loyalist-to-A-point" remarks, I would leave out his anger (comprehensible I'm sure) and take heed of the grit. He does have a point you know. I find that something is lacking -a freshness an humph- also would appreciate less references to Garance and I don't mean it in a mean way.
