I am not sure if anybody has commented on this in recent sartorial history, but I can’t focus on the beauty of the photos when the subject is smoking. Instead of noticing the stainless watch lurking in the shadows of the rich ebony topcoat, I am picturing the color of this man’s lungs (probably the same color as his coat).
I know this man and he’s a regular kind of guy was prolly brushing a thought or two in the air surrounding you and wherebouts this photo would actually end, but then again we all like to indulge in some frivolti. And way good stuff to the photo on the bottom, love how she looks clueless too and that she doesn’t know what take from this, in the backyard of somewhere so special, she has the look of trying to find more columbus or something. I couldn’t do much better than to end here like that there.
Lord have mercy. I don’t think even MOVIE stars get it this perfect. He’s mature, sophisticated, strong, Classic with a capital C…and sart, you out did yourself with this portrait. It is SO interesting and so multilayered and complex…and the model being as handsome as he is makes this absolutely irresistable. I wouldn’t dare ask him what he’s thinking and interrupt this stunner of a moment.
Well, obviously the building in the background is Palais de Chaillot, hence the photo is taken on the left banks at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower and… well, this is not quite what we call “rive gauche”. Rive gauche is the 5th, the 6th, the 7th if you wish but some areas of it (rue Cler, avenue de la Bourdonais) but pls NOT the crowed area in the middle of all the tourists, this is not very rive gauche, which indeed evokes a certain style and the guy on the photo certainly has this very elegant attitude: nice shot.
I don’t know what 9:42′s feelings are about the issue of personal choice when it comes to smoking. I agree with you that this guy has every right to smoke morning, noon and night.
But in this photo, smoking is clearly being held up as stylish–as it clearly is in this photograph. I adore The Satorialist, but he has shown on many occasions a beautifully dressed person wagging a butt. Having watched my mother die from lung cancer, lemme tell you: it ain’t glamorous. And I hate to think that young people are being sent the message that smoking is.
Apologies for being Debbie Downer here, but it’s easy to forget the gruesome reality of smoking. This guy would look every bit as fabulous with his beautiful, empty hand. Absolutely.
I am not a smoker at all, but when I see this picture, I have to admit that this man has a nice style and his cigarette gives him such a nice look. I look smokers who go for stylish cigarettes, this man has a really cool with his cigarette. His hair is also very nice!!
Oh, dear God. Yes he SMOKES, SO WHAT? There are no young children that visit this site regularly who will be corrupted, are there, if that is your issue? All of you critics please take your political platform somewhere else. I’m so sick of this new American conservatism that is trying to censor everything!
