Great looking young man. Wow, can he really put it all together. Once again, I have to tell you how much I love mixing separates to come up with a fantastic look. A suit, although great and sometimes necessary, can sometimes be so boring! Separates are where it's at!
wow, this is amazing. the jacket, sunglasses, the layering, the sweater tied around the waist, the leather strap from his bag…and the beautiful hair. he is sooo beautiful, i want him to make love to me. he can smoke afterwards.
I find it strange how people in the comments dislike the fact that he smokes. I think it's realy cultural. I mean, it's realy his problem if he smokes or not, I don't see how it can be judged. And in his case, it doesn't make him look like an old hooker, but gives him a nice countenance. The jaket is beautifull. Bravo, nice portait again. Like the one below (red haired girl), I love it.
It was warmer in Paris today, I see that it seems to be the same in NY. Enfin, le printemps qui arrive !
What a beautiful sensual guy. That coat is perfect, so is the man bag, the peek of his white shirt below the gray pullover, the jeans, the sunglasses. He would be practically antiseptic with perfection, therefor only in this case *fortunately* he smokes. Ha!
I would like to know why so many of your wonderful, stupendous, beautiful photos are of young people holding a lit ciggaret? Where I live in Colorado, one never, I mean never sees a person lighting up. Is it that different elsewhere? Just wondering. As an ex-smoker, of course.
I always thought denouncing smoking was lame, then last week my father is diagnosed with cancer. This is 100% the result of smoking, and its terrible. horrible. He is full of regret now. Obviously, this gentleman is super cool, but the Perez Hilton inside of me wants to scribble on this photo: "Death stick. Lame. Gross."
He's beautiful/handsome. Androgynous in the tradition of young Wayne Newton and k.d. lang. As mesmerized as I am by his face, I am more so by that beautiful hand of his and the elegant way he's holding the cigarette. Very alluring. You really know how to make the light work for you. The backlight through his hair and glancing off his shoulders bring him forward nicely from the soft focus background. Love that the pops of color don't have to come from the subject but can come from the background. Another photograph for the ages. I'm getting your book today. This is food for my head.
I loved all about him including his cigarette… Yes, it's cultural.
I grow up around smokers and it never bothered me and I don't smoke. Let people eat oreos, let people smoke, let people drink soda…adults should act like adults. Freedom of being is in need in this country!
Plenty of people smoke. It is cultural, it is part of a look. I don't mind that people smoke; I don't mind that he smokes. What I am saying is that, in general, I would like to see fewer photos of people smoking. Not none. Just fewer. (And I don't mean just on the sartorialist – I do mean generally.)
Last but not least, it's ongoing – I don't always get what I want (that is, unless this guy has my number?)
indeed the look its fantastic, but i resent one of the comments above which describes smoking as "cultural".such an ignorant comment. there is nothing sexy, stylish or devil-may-care about lungs that have been distorted and blackened. and most likely, smoking will eventually lead to his death. i hate to be morbid, but my gos is smoking stupid.
