    LOVE it! With that forest green hat and golden yellow cravat, it's like he's Thoreau. If Thoreau were happy and had wire-rimmed glasses. It's as if you caught him as he was about to step inside his cabin by Walden Pond…although most likely that's a cityscape behind him :)

    I notice that the glasses are so beautiful, me myself don't wear glasses but I almost see every people wearing plastic glasses. Maybe that's better when it falls off, but it's also less chic.

    I just love this man's look. You've photographed him before yes? Great tilt to the hat, this is what wearing a hat is all about. You've got to "own it" or why bother?
    The yellow scarf and the way he's got it knotted and tucked in is great as well. Wish I could see is entire outfit.

    First of all, I love this shot! One can only hope that he is as warm and as happy as his colors. Second to respond to the prior post-I love the use of the word curvy. I'm a small framed woman, 5'4" 125 pounds but with hips and calves that make finding stylish clothes or representative models difficult. I think this blog does a fabulous job of finding beauty everywhere in a wide range of body types, ages, and self-expression. Long live curvy!

    There are so many men with beards in Europe. I'm from Russia and I rarely see a man with a beard.

    I like that the simple navy blazer and jaket are put together with less common colors.

    This photo reminds me of someone I loved dearly years ago–neckerchief, hat, glasses, twinkly eyes, and all. It's a beautiful portrait of a lovely man, and it made me smile (and sniffle a little). Thanks for sharing it.
