    I don't even really know what I love so much about this, but it feels just perfect. So…cohesive! And personal. He feels like a very nice teacher.

    I'm partial to Gentleman designers who worked their heels off to earn a place in history. Mr. Jeffrey Banks is a Classicist: the cool (tone) of the heather toggle coat, creamy turtleneck, and chocolatey trousers.

    beyond spectacular! the smile, light grey heather and soft natural fisherman knit. the slight shot of color in the gloves. And, again the smile–it shows kindness and spirit. And the paperwork… he looks smart not just stylish… one of the best shots EVER!

    There is nothing better than a duffle coat to keep you warm in winter. I love the colour of this one.

    I have a duffle coat from Burberry that is over 20 years old and still looks great. I wear it every day in winter. Looks great with jeans or with a short skirt with boots.

    I am, in general, very happily surprised by the style of New Yorkers in your pictures. They seem to have a way of dressing which is harmonious and relaxed without being over the top or too sophisticated. This picture is a great example: the man has find a combination of colours, shapes, textures that looks effortless ! Thanks for sharing.

    favorite part of this outfit…the HOOD…he has adjusted it to be propped perfectly up against the back of his neck..it's not flat nor falling prey to one side or the other..LOVE this look.

    You have ramped it up a notch with this photo, Scott. Very artistic. As is the case with great photographs it is the slightly odd or incongruous detail that makes it so interesting….note the almost feminine quality of his footwear-so sharp, so attenuated. The subject is also very enigmatic-he draws you in, you want to know who this fantastically stylish man is, what he does for a living, who he loves…
