I think this is a great look. The charcoal grey suit with a ticket pocket. The light grey sweater underneath. Cashmere? And the rich red scarf. Even his glasses and hair are great. His appearance has a lot of personality.
i’ve been reading your blog for some while now and guess if i was thrilled to see that you were gonna be on swedish television? i think it’s on tonight, but i couldn’t wait so i watched it online instead. you’re awesome! keep rocking.
I was in NYC a week ago and the weather had just started getting cold. I swear New Yorkers LIVE to wear their scarves, since the very first day of temperatures below 70 meant not a single neck was exposed.
Hey! I have a question for you. I’m just wondering how you approach people and what you tell them when you want to take their picture? (-: Love your photos btw so keep up the good work! Hugs from Mimo in Sweden (you have a lot of fans here)
Calm down everybody, Scott likes a bit of graceful criticism too, right? I think that whilst he looks ‘okay’ – the reality is that the whole image is very geeky and old-man-ish. It reeks of ‘contrived’ as opposed to effortless and stylish. He looks pretty cool, problem is he also looks like he knows it. Oddly, if he lost that scarf and opened up his neck he’d look looser and more warm.
I like how he is wearing his jacket. It is a suit, but, with the seater underneath- and the scarf, he is sporting an attitude of, “Yes it is a suit, and also it is keeping me warm.” Something like how a hobo would approach wearing a suit.
Does anyone else think that that’s a really boring way to wear a scarf? To me, scarfs look best when they seem half trown-on, and not in some sort of folded knot. Their shape comes across better, and they’re more dramatic. Anyone?
He’s great looking, but looks a little bit too much like a certain type — you know, Dalton, then Brown, and when all of his friends go off to become investment bankers or McKinsey consultants, he goes to architecture school at Columbia or Princeton or Yale.
Personally, the guy is gorgeous–as to the old man look, I dont know where you guys are getting it–his fresh, new, but mature look gives a comforting edge. As to his nervous hand position—okay that guy should be nervous, i mean to be asked by someone to take their picture randomly, thats nerve-raking. Im in love
Can nobody see that the scarf is not ‘architecturally’ tied, or studiously knotted – it is simply folded in half, wrapped around his neck, and the ends passed through the top loop… it is one of the simplest ways to wear a scarf. And why does anyone need to appreciate the ‘shape’ of a scarf, anonymous 8:40? I usually find them in long, thin rectangles.
The contrast of the bulky scarf against an otherwise stiff outfit makes such a statement. Immediately my eyes are on the scarf and rarely leave. Love the fall, it’s that time again when a man’s fancy turns to scarves.
If this guy were a musician he’d be a trombone player, no doubt. There is an intellectual quality about him and the scarf to me says “lower brass” instrument! Sound crazy? Well, that’s the vibe he puts out. There is also a meticulous and almost obsessive quality to his appearance. He insists on buttoning the top jacket even though its tight across his waist. He would insist on driving his own car through a car wash.
