    Look at those shoes and the fedora! Not to mention the bike, with a satchel. What a man. Gran Paparazzi would be proud.

    I love the pannier, cuff guard and stylings on the bike: Just beautiful. Our friend looks pretty terrific, too!

    I have a great distain for the fedora – I despise them with a passion! However, I shall make an exception in this case because when I grow up I want to be just like you Mr Cigar man! Your my hero!

    More than anyone you've ever taken a photo of- and more than any photo you've taken- I need to draw this!!!! His leg out to the side supporting him and the cigar coming out of his mouth DEAD center. YES!

    Oh I love the greens, plaids, argyle and different leathers. In concept all that would be too much. In reality it's subtle, individual and right on the money.

    Oh what a character! He look marvellous on his bicycle… and I adore the colour of his shoes.

    I'd give him a light–let him have the lighter as a matter of fact. Dressed nattily for urban combat. Don't step on his (brown-green, not blue) suede shoes.

    Great subtle color differences. And the glasses are really awesome but look like he was wearing them even when they were "out of style."

    Classy guy

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. And then there are the times when it really is all about the cigar.

    There is an elegance and poise that only life's experiences can bring. It would take a precocious young man to carry himself the same way this man has.

    He is incredible. I love how you can't feel the "I don't care" attitude exuding from his pores. Excellent.

    Like a true milanese this man never travels without pink sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport. That's Inter's Mario Balotelli (nimber 45) on the front cover, which I think tells me this photo was taken last Monday.

    The moustache!!!Its superb! Why hasn't anyone mentioned it. Facial hair as fashion/style statement at its best. He is just fantastic!

    This man looks fantastic! Those shoes! Those pants! That scarf! That mustache! Younger men should hope to look this natural in their clothing and this stylish.

    Take note, every item this gent is wearing was purchased at separte places and at different times most likely. This supports the fact ..style is honed over a period of time like the edge of a sharp instrument…a razor for example.

    I loved the mustache, the glasses and the hat,
    the way he smokes his cigar is funny though it´s attractive
