    I like the play of proportions. Not really a flattering result, but cool in an over-exaggerated kind of way.

    The coat is huge- but I wish I had his legs. Anyway the hand art is interesting. The boots are cool, love it when the worn in a little. Great post

    notice that his hand tat, v-neck on the pea coat (and lapels), as well as the shape of his beard all evoke the image of the tip of the spear. Fibonacci has nothing on the geometric impression found in this shot!

    Those jackets are v warm, I have a v similar one longer and bit more tapered. Best to buy vintage/2nd hand they don't make them like they use to. The quality of wool i've seen in the most shops are definitely found wanting.

    The silhouette does not work at all (my personal taste), and the blue/black combo is never bothersome, but he has a handsome features and I agree with 2 someone else's who commented on his beard and carefully managed hairstyle and his likeness of that of Van Gogh – yet, I am thinking more than Van Gogh – more like the men of that same period – that of the Impressionists, pre, post, etc. There could be no doubt about anything this man could say!

    What an interesting picture! I'd never have imagined such THIN legs while scrolling down the broad-shouldered coat! And, looking at his face, with slick back-combed hair, I was thinking, after having viewed the entire picture, 'How old is he??'

    Well, just my thoughts.

    This outfit, with that beard, the slick back hair and those tattoos…got to have the package to make a dark outfit stand out the way it does on this lad. ATTITUDE. Great eye.
