    Apart from the fashion, that is actually an amazing pic, with the backdrop of the school bus.

    So cool. He looks great – he works those white shoes SO well – and it's a really great shot too, a very New York moment!

    I am going to be the voice of dissent here. The jacket is an excellent fit, except that there are no sleeves from the shirt he is wearing, and the jacket sleeves are way up his forearms. If you bring a jacket to the office to "dress-up" an outfit, and you are wearing short sleeves to keep cool, would you not wear your short sleeves only during your commute? Jorge from WPB

    That looks like me on my vespa here in Paris!

    the gray pants!!!!!!!… match with the solex!!!

    that shoes seems to be even more comfortable than the solex's riding!..that's the reason why he's wearing the jacket even when is riding!

    He looks great. The bike is ugly, though. Riding in traffic, on one's cellphone, without a helmet is foolhardy.

    Perfect shoes & trousers to go sockless.

    So much better than all that silly Goodyear welt sans sock.

    I hate to be a downer, but I fear for his handsome head. A cool helmet –there are plenty out there now– would not spoil his look at all.

    LMAO!!! This picture is incredible!! Its so good I have to laugh! The man looks like he's doing a business call while on a bike! Not only that but he's really well dressed too!! His bike is so stylish it could almost pass for a car! His skinny pants and jacket make his look!

    I have no idea how this whole sockless thing with blazers and nice shoes managed to catch on, but I think it's just wrong. I know Derrick Miller of Barker Black/Ralph Lauren fame has been pushing it for a while, but it just looks incomplete and even more incorrect with dress shoes. It's another men's fashion trend that I think guys of a certain ilk are completely out to lunch on. Sorry if anyone disagrees.

    he needs a helmet and bluetooth. talking on a phone while driving is dangerous…especially when you're on a bike.

    It's always great to see people on bikes and looking stylish.
    I'm pleased that the health and safety "you have to wear a helmet" brigade are outnumbered in the comments too. Learn the facts about cycle safety and helmet effectiveness before telling people what to do. And ride your bike looking cool without a stupid, pointless helmet ruining the look.

    these "startas" sneakers are having a big comeback recently. but these are the traditional ones, from 70's, if i'm right, originally workers' shoes. i prefer them… and they are not so comfortable, but probably the quality follows the price, and you can throw them away without being sorry.

    I really like the plimsolls too; big in Europe, but still considered 'girl's shoes' by too many sexually insecure American men. Wear them with socks or no, but for the love of god don't wear long pants with those short quarter socks (I see a lot of that in Seattle; I thing the guys think it's a 'jock' look). Sorry to go off topic, but this is an incredible peeve of mine. When wearing long pants, make up your mind; socks or not, just don't go 1/2-way; you just look silly.'

    But this guy is great! I just ordered some cool Ted Baker plimsolls from London, but I'm going to check out Startas!

    Great picture. Pretty sure thats not an electric Solex though… its got a 2 stroke gas engine you lever down over the front wheel… not the most eco-friendly thing in the world. Looks very stylish here though… I've got an old orange one thats been in storage for years and this pic makes me want to get it back on the road!

    The look is fabulous!
    I love the length of the pants paired with those gorgeous shoes. And the design is magic

    The blazer's fit is pure perfection. I'm sure this man had a stroke of genius when he woke up that morning.
    The bike was the perfect touch to his elegance.
