    Wow! I actually kinda like this. I’ve done that before…wrapped one of my really cool throws around me, but never went out of the house with it, but fantasize about it. I love his shoes, and the hat gives him a quaker quality, which I really like. See…this is what I like, a different approach to fashion than what we normally see everyday, it gets us all to think out of the box, even if you don’t like the whole ensemble, there is something you can take away from it.

    Amazing how the hat makes it work. No hat, no personality, no photo. Different hat would look familiar and boring. I love this guy, something in his style looks new and very interesting. I am curious about his other choices.

    Let’s take a look at this guy.
    He is wearing a classic white shirt, a checked sporty jacket over it, a giant scarf. Moreover, he chose patent shoes and a Father Piligrim – style hat.
    This is remarkable, he put together the most apparently unmatchable pieces of clothing and he did it so well that he doesn’t look exaggerate. Congratuliations! =)

    I somehow expect Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach to ride up on horses, guns pulled, sweat coating their faces in an oily slick. And the flies! Oh the flies!

    The good: The pants, the shoes, his nicely cropped beard. His handsome face.

    The bad (to the bone, that is): That hat and scarf (blanket really). He’s a bad ass for pulling it off without a bit of silliness.

    The ugly: Ain’t no ugly here.

    Maybe this is where Rei Kawakubo got inspiration for her f/w ’09 show (or vice versa… or not). Those blankets as throws are cool. I’ve been doing it for years with, for example, an indigo colored Guatemalan woven blanket I bought in Mexico. I throw it over a close fitted jacket like my gray Theory pin striped. I’ll even wear that to a meeting. And yeah, I feel like a female Clint Eastwood.

    Good phrase, Anonymous 11:17!
    “Amish Lubavacher”

    Is he serious? Or is he spoofing seriousness? — like the “youth” below.

    I can’t see where all the fringe is coming from. It can’t all be coming from the shawl. And without the hanging fringe on both sides, the “talis” look wouldn’t come off as strong. Is it part of the jacket?

    His beard is a masterpiece.

    The jacket is fabric fab. Its pattern is echoed in the painted pedestrian strips. Once again, brilliant photographic choices.

    What is so great about this picture is that it is really “old world”. There are men all over the world in poor countries dressing like this or that used to dress like this ( minus the shoes ). This is how they keep warm. In the remote villages of Portugal, the Balkans, the Middle East, Tibet, Africa………just look in National Geographics.

    The difference here is that he is doing it in an urban, fashion-forward setting.

    Now, see, when I rant about how men should wear shawls more often, this is what I mean. And again, this is a look you’d also want to see in motion, because I bet the ends of the shawl are going to move in beautiful ways.

    Nobody has commented yet on how the parallel white lines of the street markings are echoed in the white/grey of his jacket. Let’s have a round of applause for the brilliant composition of the photo.

    I love how your photos incorporate the clothes and the background behind it. The subtle shades of black and grey from his clothes are echoed in the crosswalk stripes (you did the same thing with the hoodie and Barbour outfit from the other day).

    As for this fellow all I can say is HOT! His beard is perfect for his patigonia themed outfit. I really appreciate how such disparate elements can blend into this inspired outfit. Like dress up with all the fun things in his closet. The skinny jeans, the patent shoes, the checked coat and white shirt are so current but the addition of the hat and shawl completely transform their relevance. Excellent and inspiring! I love it!

    Marcelo is killing it in this photo! Keeping his look true to his Patagonia roots, but still giving it his own sophisticated Milano touch. Always stylish, and such a great guy! How do you say “panache” in Italian? Marcelo . . . that’s how!

    The impression I get from his style and composure seems to pull influences from: Hassidic + Gauchesca + Adrian Brody for Ermenegildio Zegna.

    His earnest stance is interesting! He seems very comfortable allowing his hands to remain unoccupied. Also, the wrinkles in his tight ants are just right.

    What neat facial here, too!

    I love this, but I don't think my husband could pull it off.
