The look of the man is simply shockingly elegant!! Beatiful navy two botton suit, amazing hat, perfect!!!… I really don’t like the color of the woman’s coat, that’s too much…and do not really matchs with the fantastic (and simple) elegance of the man!! I think that this picture shows everyone that elegance is a matter of basic (and classic) elements.
Magnificent!! That the elderly gentleman has paid such attention to detail and looks better than most of us ever will, is exceptional. And I love that woman’s coat. Green? Who would’ve ever thought, she matches him toe to toe I think. What a picture Sart!
I absolutely loove this picture! Great eye Sart. They both look so elegant. Well pressed suit, polished shoes,perfect knotted tie and hat paired with the wonderful color of the woman’s coat against the blue grey suit is perfect. The couple even has an elegant pose. Great picture!
Â They look amazing! Style and elegance BIG time! I disagree with maverick:the color of the coat looks great and contrasts well with the more serious blue of the gentleman’s suit. It is this juxtaposition of color that makes this look unique and classy. Otherwise it would be boring.
It looks like the photo campaingn for Kate Spade something arround 3 years ago: A familly reunion where color, style, and refinement were the “family values”. By the way she is going totally agnes b with her advertisment.
Brings back some very fond memories of a great aunt and uncle … thanks!
They’re both fabulous. I initially thought the lady’s coat & hair didn’t match, but it’s growing on me.
The real clincher is his hat! That is totally reminiscent of my great uncle, and of the men of his generation to wear that sort of hat without thinking about it or making an effort; it’s just natural. It’s a blast from our stylish past!
I think that the colour of her coat is a bit bright for her skin. That said, the fact that she looks so good is perhaps a reflection of the fact that one doesn’t necessarily need to stick with the limited set of colours that always suit us. What a revolutionary thought! – UK in US
I think Maverick is wrong about the woman’s coat. It sets off her hair and considering it looks like a greyish day, the coat has a snap that is perfectly suited to the grey or is that a steel blue suit on the gentleman. Now if the coat were red or white, that would be a bore. She probably has a black one and a grey one in her closet. But it’s all context and the woman wonderfully autumnal.
For me it’s not about the coat, the hat or the shoes — it’s about the radiance of her smile and the twinkle in his eyes. Yes, they are stylish and they look great, but that happiness… now that’s cause for optimism, especially today. Thank you for bring us this ray of sunshine.
This photograph is award-winning.Definitely. It’s like a short story.The grace of old age,represented by a superbly dressed couple;they exude a joie de vivre that most people half their age have exhausted.No ennui here;only a life well lived. This blog is like great wine;better and better with age.
