wow dressed sooo perfect for the winter in NYC and you know that come the summer Mr right hand man of the USA’s finest sartorial export Mr Lauren … will be wearing the garments to provide us again with another perfect heritage meets east coast meets mid west combo … he’s my sartorial hero and i hope when i get to his age i still care, but don’t come across contrived …. just enthusiastic and genuine … heres to the man !
What great personal style, esp. the first photo. Subtle yet eye-catching. Placing him in front of that wall is pure genius. The colors pop; the textures pop. Another example of your amazing eye and talent for composition.
This is the Webster dictionary definition of the word VAGRANT: 1. one who has no established residence and wanders idly from place to place without lawful or visible means of support 2. one (as a prostitute or drunkard) whose conduct constitutes statutory LAGUNA BEACH TRAD is you have one ounce of dignity you will recant.
He is absolutely sure of himself,he is not cool in a knowing way, but only because he doesnÂ´t seem to care.He is not showing off anything, just being himself. Reminds me of my own dad. His clothes look worn but in a good way. He looks really good.
Nothing to do with this guy (although I agree he’s charming) – but don’t you have Spring in Manhattan yet? It’s freezing but bright in London, and I saw the first bare tanned legs of the season on Saturday.
Doug Bihlmaier – a fantastic beacon of individualistic style and taste – a wonderful soul and excellent friend to so many in the Vintage industry. His look has elicited decades of success at Polo. Not to mention is BRILLIANCE as a designer of interiors and rooms. Bravo!
Interestingly enough, his boots on the first pic are by JCrew, made by Red Wing. I bought a pair, and although not cheap, they are worth the money. I wonder if RL does not make a similar boot… Love both pics, though. Easy style that most of us strive for
In picture #2, I am drawn to the background. What the WW II vet (I assume) is wearing. Also, the guy with the wide brim hat, blue shirt and orange tie…looks like he’s trying to get Sart to take HIS picture.
i love him from casual to formal. he reminds me of a salty maine fisherman. the accessories in his “formal” pic are what kill me – the hat, scarf, satchel, gloves = perfect! i also love the length of his cords! adorable.
I think this guy has my dream job. I sure would love to go thru his warehouse of vintage stuff… I love seeing people, no longer in their salad days looking excellent! I get so tired of seeing middle aged people look like crap.
he is indeed the RL guy..and he has the most beautiful taste ever. and it’s also nice to know that he is a lovely, kind person. if you think he looks cool (and he does) you should see his car. i love his authenticity – a rare thing to see – but Sart does a beautiful job of finding these gems.
to answer someone above- definitely not spring yet! i’m west of the city adn we have snow and freezing rain! i agree with another above- he reminds me a little a Maine fisherman! i really like it though, his outfits make me think he has some great stories to tell.
In my most recent correspondence about meeting you at your show I said that you were my new mentor but if the recent comments are to be believed, this gentleman, Doug Bihlmaier(?), is! If he has been the vintage buyer for Polo for years and a good guy I think I have to meet him and learn. I suspect we may have karmic business together.
Thanks for the follow up picture, he looks so much healthier and much less homeless.
The first outfit is fantastic as is the picture. I must say I love the pant length; it just looks right with these slightly wider pants. The color combination is magnificent and it all looks so, as somebody said earlier, effortless.
This is a guy named Doug Bilmaier. I worked with him back in the 80′s and we were the original stylists who worked with Ralph developing all the looks for showrooms, stores and ad campaigns. Doug’s a seriously talented guy…….. and super nice.
