    The scarf is fantastic. I'm going to remember what he did with it. I love the layers, the great jacket, and the pants that once again hint of Spring. Good looking fellow.

    I love it when someone with a strong sense of style and confidence takes an "old man" label and makes it into something so effortlessly sexy and original. This guy is smouldering and ice cold, warm and cold, all at once. Love it.

    I love him, his work, and his style. So masculine, yet able to casually pull off details the average bloke couldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
    Oh, and did I mention he's rather easy on the eyes, as well? ;)

    Is Barbour poised for a Burberry-style makeover?

    I've always liked the Barbour coats but thought they could be slimmed down a bit to make them a bit more modern, less fusty.

    Are you kidding me?! This guy is a living sculpture. The artist in me wants to view him from every side and by every angle of light. Ok, that's a bit dramatic. Focus.
    Yes, he's got some serious style. I love the scarf like everyone else here.

    Layers, Layers, Layers…

    Crangi always looks great but its the layering that gets me in this one.

    I love the bigger cardigan with the more fitted sweater, the extra length in the sleeves of the cardigan makes it perfect.

    The jacket speaks for itself.

    Great Catch…

    Less beautiful viking, and more Edwardian tough. Masterpiece Theatre on the down low. What I love about this photo is the way the edge of the scarf next to his face on the right almost looks as though it were an extension of his 'stache… as if he had invented some funky wrap-style for his facial hair. Brad Pitt, take note!

    He looks beautiful, of course.

    I love Barbour jackets and styling, but the trend has exhausted me of enthusiasm for them. I love the heritage of the brand, they are anything but trendy, but they are, at the moment, so hard to wear without looking exactly like 5-10 other people waiting to cross the street at intersection X in NYC.

    Is it a Barbour New Utility or Belstaff ?

  57. Joe

    February 23, 2010 at 8:02 am

    Sart – Great shot. I own two Barbours now including the one this chap is sporting. I wore it the whole time in Paris whilst on vacation in October, and got the seal of approval from the Parisians ! I remember Sart pictured sporting one a few years ago that was broken in perfectly. They might be a bit $$, but worth every cent.

    Blue Barbours are great for the city.
    The trad olive green colorway reeks of David Cameron on a weekend's shoot in Dorset (not a good look)

  60. CW

    February 23, 2010 at 9:02 am

    The layering is interesting – oilcloth outer jacket, cardigan, v-neck pullover, shirt. The muffler is overkill. He needs a hat, such as a black trilby or a baseball-style cap. Trousers in a different shade – perhaps an olive green – would go better with what he is wearing on his upper body.

    hooray for barbour jackets! I have a men's one and I wear it every day (in fact i'm wearing it right now!) Love the layering here – the jacket, then the cardigan (?), sweater, and shirt, although i'm not sure how he managed to fit it all under the jacket

    This guy has the effortless cool look down. Plenty of swagger.

    Love the lighting of the shot, too, the wet asphalt and reflective windows, the reflective look on Crangi's face. And he's an artist? My type exactly–if I wasn't married. ;)

    nah its a barbour alright. international to be precise with the horrible badge and belt taken off. you can tell by the pockets and the shoulders. belstaff's have shoulder patch bits and squarer pockets.

    great look nonetheless, worn in and with a huge amount of character

    It is without a doubt a vintage Barbour International (as another post said) without the badge.

    I have the exact same model (badge removed), and it's clear from the shape and size of the pockets and pocket flaps and tartan lining.

    I also have Belstaff jackets the pockets are cut square and the button flap on the wrist is slightly longer.

    The beauty of this is the fact that the jacket is well worn and he appears to be wearing it a size or so smaller than it would normally be worn.

    it is a beautiful photo. he seems so confident and his image appears to be the epitome of male pride. there is perhaps a hint of arrogance that makes him even more irresistible and still… if you search for his work and come across a video of him, if you are a straight woman you will be disappointed to find that he is not as manly as you thought he would be. the american accent and his feminine manerisms did not fit the image of a wild viking and of a wild adventurous male that i personally had formed in my head…

    so you see images are very powerful. they can make you dream but also they can deceive you :)

    You're wrong; as other posts have said, this is undoubtedly a Barbour international, which is a motorcycle jacket (like Belstaff) and very much unlike your utility jacket.

    Barbour's are stylish, it just depends who wears it and more importantly, how it's worn.

    He might be masculine but not because of this.

    This is a style-ized version of rugged masculinity. Girls fawn over it because it gives the illusion of badass/edginess without any of the actual badassness. It conjures up images of 1950's hard-nosed bikers which makes women tingle but doesn't actually come with the uncaring viciousness that would go with said 1950's biker. Adding dandiness with the perfectly coifed hair, fashionable beard, and the effeminate scarf/sweater, this combination makes women swoon.

    I can't blame the guy, though. It's a poon magnet.
