    Engaging look…hair carefully trimmed, crisp white shirt, nailhead tweed suit, and a gorgeously disintegrating overcoat–its substantial twill evolved to cutaway where it once did not.

    Hmmm–to see this gent from head to toe to gain the full effect of his overall look/the coat/definitely his shoes (hopefully something brogue-ish or heavy made like boots).

    Done so artfully in black and white, of course–thanks Sart!

      This image has a timeless look to it. It could almost be from another century.

      If you aren’t a fashion writer you might consider a career change, as you do it well!
      I’m too tired at present to thing much more than: mighty fine and handsome. This gentleman has a most princely air about him. Even if I’m ‘projecting,’ who cares?!

    Beautiful photo! I think he has a really cool suit underneath the coat!

    He has come from the past
    the journey has marked his coat
    his eyebrows questioning the technology of this world.

    In this Black History Month 2014 he is everything the legacy embodies – pride, posture, elegance and timelessness. He carries the past into the present with dignity and style and, at the next open portal, I know he will glide through into the future with as much…

    One of my favorite posts in a while. Really well crafted. Curious about his footwear.

    Everything about that look is beautiful. The dapper three piece, crisp white shirt and draped overcoat. He is framed beautifully and captured from such an interesting angle – like we are sneaking a look at him, when we shouldn’t be.

    Looks like an old pic… if not for the iPhone i could totally be “cheated”… however, i am curious to see the color version!

    What an intriguing photograph. It asks questions and leaves no answers. We all can impose our own narratives about what that coat means–why is he wearing it–who is he communicating with–where is he going? Dream on…..

    His coat is torn! It’s as though he’s been fighting someone. A sword fight perhaps? But he’s so dapper, it makes you imagine he’s a 007 fighting some worthy battles. He’s very handsome and his clothes enhance his good looks.
