    pants ruin the whole thing. too high waisted and too narrow. jeans a better choice or cords…

      I’m personally indifferent to the clothes. What an arresting face. What beautiful eyes.

    A great tartan scarf. He wears it so well.

    Totally agree on the wriststrap!

    Fashion wise, I’m not a fan of his pants.

    But I do like this capture!! Non-posed. You just caught him off guard. :)

    Camo’s, always liked them. Now here is an example of a man who dresses as though he doesn’t care, but the details tell you that he does. How handsome! xo

    I love the camouflage with the camel hari and Barbour coat. Country chic with a little urban attitude.

    What a funny mix, but somehow everything goes in NYC. A mix of hunting, military and British…very bold.

    well, this is a hodgepodge. military on the bottom, hunting on top, and a professor creamy center. can’t say I love it.

    is that a tooled leather camera strap? I like how it picks up the leather buttons on his jacket.

    Camo chinos and blazer, first Lapo, then Michael Bastian Fall 09, then Mr. Rubenstein…I’m sensing a trend here

    Some really cool layering here. I am getting a bit of a Johnny Depp vibe with this. The pants though could definitely be swapped out for jeans or a dark wool pant.

    His loo is good except for the camo pants. Reminds me of Al Pacino in Serpico…

    I could do without the camo but everything else is just brilliant! The oxford with the plaid scarf, the camel colored coat, and the barbour jacket. Great use of basics!!! Jorge from W Palm Beach

    His colors and fit are so nice… Then he’s wearing camoflauge pants.

    I dont mind the camo… especially not with the great blazer and plaid scarf.

    He has a face that speaks of his creativity, and his choice of clothing confirms it.
    Off center? Yes, a bit. Captivating? Absolutely.

    I also love the Barbour. That is definitely my next coat purchase. So classic, so smart and so functional.

    So glad to see Mordy back-we used to hang back in the day when i was a wee soho shopgirl. He never disappoints.

    I wish I could duplicate that expression when I’m trying to flirt
    with someone. My “come hither” look is more apt to make someone switch seats on the bus, or sit closer to the driver.

    Not so sure I’m digging the camo pants with this ensemble. Love the Barbour coat, though. He seems like a real character.

    ADORABLE. Love the layered, almost RL/RLX look.

    It is a really interesting combo, not a fan of those militar pants though.

    This spelled it out for me: real classics can be combined almost randomly and look great if the wearer really likes them all and if they fit well. Thanks.

    Wow, love this. I often mix my camo pants in with some finer clothes – great hunt look! Thanks, Alexander Scott

    The wrist strap is fantastic!!
    He’s a good looking guy.
    Great photo…

    But, why are so many people trying very hard to look like they are shopping at Salvation Army and failing to buy clothes that work together? Seems to be the recent trend on here. Maybe people are just getting sick of winter and letting go. Maybe the cabin fever is making them lose sensibility.

    A real hat would have looked better.

    Oh look! Camouflaged pants. How quaint.

    Great look, most certainly WORKIN it. And naughty look in his eye does not hurt!

    That’s the exact vibe I get from Mister Mort’s blog. Awesome.

    Side note. Wow. Mad Hatter’s blogger photo sure caught me off guard in the best possible way.

    When you are that good looking – who cares about the details of his clothes!

    Does not work for me at all – too many ideas, not enough restraint. I flinch when catch myself wondering what shoes he is wearing… too much already; probably best to omit the shoes.

    Ahhh no! The whole outfit doesn´t suit together!
    Too much mixed.

    I like his look. It is the classic country gent look but with a twist that the camouflage trousers bring into it. Barbour jacket must be one of the most versatile coats ever – it is fine both in the country and the city. This is propably a Beaufort.

    I like it, looks very Italian with the barbour and the scarf worn like that. Pretty pic
